"Time Machine - a very simple ambitious-esque routine. You place a card in the middle and “turn back time” and it goes to the top. You make it a little routine with 2 cards and it beats the original ambitious in my opinion. Very easy to do.

Pinky Promise 1 - A routine with business cards where the spectators signed card and yours switch places while you are each holding your own. This right away reminded me of French kiss by wayne houchin, but Shin really changed the mood it sets.

The Biddle Trick - It’s the basic biddle trick, takes a little bit of a different presentation. It does add a few little subeties that the biddle trick I learned didn’t have.

Card Sleights - This is another ambitious routine. It teaches a lot of fundamental card sleights and moves and the routine is just beautiful. It’s not just a card jumping to the top over and over. It has dynamics and is perfect for any situation.

4 for 4 - Shin’s take on changing 4 aces into 4 kings. I’m actually sad he taught this as it was originally released on Shinanigans and has been in my set for a long time. This is the hardest thing taught on this set, but is the most rewarding.

Svengali - Similar to a Svengali deck but shin does a routine with Note Cards. Kind of reminds me of sven pads.

S Dribble - Shin’s original flourish. I have been waiting to learn this everywhere!! It is similar in looks to the anaconda or the spring, but is different in handling, and it flows a little differently. It looks super good. Only availiable here

Card Spring - Shin teaches how he does the card spring. He does it differently then I do but it is great for beginners trying to learn it or those who want to improve their technique.

Thumb Fan - Exactly what it sounds like. Shin teaches the thumb fan. A nice little flourish to add in your card work.

Pinky Promise 2 - It’s like the first version, except with cards and it adds a visual element to it. Again very inspired by French kiss, but adds a different presentation and a very nice visual.

Bonus - 1 to 5 by Yu Ho Jin- A routine where the specators cut the deck and deal from an A to 5, royal flush, or whatever 5 cards you want.

This is a steal of a deal for the price! The video and sound quality is top notch. Lots of real workers material, things you will use walking around in the real world." Cody Davis, The Magic Cafe
