ALDO COLOMBINI Card and Dice Deceptions Volume 2 --
published by MY Magic 2006
The late Aldo Colombini seemed to have an almost infinite amount of knowledge about close-up magic -- his DVDs display a depth and breath of knowledge, backed up with actual ability to also perform all the thousands (millions?) of tricks he knew. On this DVD, from 2006, he shows a bunch of effects using Cards and Dice. (You probably guessed that from the title...)
Some of the items are "process-heavy", as is common with many card and dice tricks. But hey, he teaches 13 different items, so even if a few of them are more like puzzles than magical moments of astonishment, you still get a lot of clever and entertaining material on this DVD. And a few of them are downright foolers, even for well informed and experienced magicians. For laypeople, who see the natural connection between dice and cards (gambling), these routines hold a high degree of interest.
Routines are not completely sleight-free, but all are well within the grasp of even beginners with cards. Nothing beyond elementary card sleights used.
Get this DVD for a glimpse of Aldo Colombini's knowledge and irresistably likeable personality, and to add some great routines to add to your repertoire.

Retail on this DVD $35. That was the best price I could find on it when I searched today. But hey, I like to be the lowest price, by far, so....
