Real Secrets Bonus April

Postby erdnasephile » April 30th, 2014, 11:16 am

The Bonus this month is really, really good. Diabolical organic magic for your next night out.

I got my Real Secrets yesterday. I like the prop that comes with the regular trick more than the bonus. It's interesting to notice that a particular individual's name seems to be more overtly credited more and more. :shock:

I didn't realise Real Secrets were still on the go...

I missed it the first time around. Do you think it will be offered again?

Still waiting for April, but I have had great reactions from the 2nd bonus with release #24 (I believe). If you have not tried it, it is well worth the additional expense.

Has anyone received the surprise bonus to the exclusive item which was up for sale in limited quantities a little over a month ago?

I like the both items this month but I prefer the "regular" item. If I were still in the "corporate world," it's something I would use regularly (I would usually encounter many different people over the course of a year). Regardless, it will likely end up in my wallet.

Since there is no RS Forum to discuss the items, I've appreciated when other RS subscribers have pointed out that a particular issue has something good in it. In keeping with the RS agreement, we aren't supposed to post specifics.

There was another item in the envelope, which I assumed was the bonus. Is there something else?

Self censored. Sorry...

I received no email from Real Secrets. My envelope contained two items, both black plastic "cards," but they are not identical. The bonus trick requires no props.

Jonathan, if you're not a Real Secrets subscriber, please keep out of the conversation and don't complain about "coy" remarks. Most of us can't understand half the stuff your write!

My package contents were the same as described by Richard.

While I can appreciate the bonus trick, I can't think of a single place that I go where it could be used. I guess I don't frequent the right type of establishments, or I'm blissfully ignorant of the requisite item's availability. Fun to read the routine, though. I am pleased with the quality of the first item, too.

I was thinking of making a business card out of the RS black thing. Then I could give it away. Too bad we can't have a forum because there are some things the beg to be played with and ideas to share.

I agree, JR, but the RS folks are completely opposed to the idea.
