As we bid farewell to 2023, I would like to extend heartfelt gratitude to each and every one of you, our AlakaFam. You have made this year truly magical. Your unwavering support has propelled us to new heights, allowing us to craft and share more magic than ever before. Join me on this reflective journey as I recount the highlights of the year, celebrate the incredible talents we've collaborated with, and offer a glimpse into what the future holds for The AlakaFam in 2024.
Unveiling Wonders: The Apparition Coin Set, Knock'em Dead, The Grail & The Night Shade Coin Set
This year, our range expanded with the introduction of captivating effects such as The Apparition Coin Set, Knock'em Dead, The Grail, and The Night Shade Coin Set. These creations are the result of meticulous craftsmanship and the imaginative brilliance of renowned creators in the magic community. It's been a year of pushing boundaries and redefining what's possible in the realm of magic.
Collaborating with Magical Maestros
None of our achievements would have been possible without the collaboration of some of the most incredible minds in magic. The Alakazam team had the privilege of working with luminaries like Craig Petty, Mike Rose, Marc Spelmann, Martin Peirce, Nikolas Mavresis, Chris Wardle, John Carey, Chris James, Tom Wright, Chris Congreave, Steve Row, David Jonathan, and many more. Each collaboration was a fusion of creativity, passion, and expertise, bringing forth unique and groundbreaking magical effects, downloads and Academies.
Elite Coin Range Expands: The Apparition Coin Set & The Night Shade Coin Set
This year saw the expansion of our Elite Coin Range with not one but two extraordinary additions – The Apparition Coin Set and The Nightshade Coin Set. Created by the legendary Craig Petty and crafted by Roy Kueppers, these coin sets have received accolades from the magic community for their ingenuity and elegance. We take pride in presenting these sets that redefine excellence in coin magic.
Reviving Classics: Knock'em Dead and The Grail
In addition to introducing new wonders, we revisited some classic Alakazam effects, breathing new life into them. Knock'em Dead and The Grail, both timeless favourites, were not merely brought back; they were enhanced and refined to surpass their former glory. It's no surprise that these classics secured the top two spots in our year's best sellers list, a testament to their enduring appeal and the magic community's appreciation.
Bringing Magic to Your Screens: Monthly Live Launch Events
Throughout the year, we hosted monthly online live launch events, giving you a front-row seat to the premieres of our latest releases. The magic came to life as creators shared insights, demonstrated their effects, and engaged with viewers in real-time. Your questions and enthusiasm made these events truly special, and we can't wait to continue this tradition in the coming year.
Weekly Online Shows: A Tuesday Tradition
Every Tuesday at 2 pm, our online show on Facebook and YouTube became a weekly tradition, offering an intimate and interactive space for magic enthusiasts. The community gathered to listen to our magic banter, share thoughts, and connect with fellow members of The AlakaFam. And for those with our app, you also got exclusive live shows, early access to releases, and app-only deals.
Looking Forward to 2024
As we close the curtain on 2023, we're already bubbling with excitement for what lies ahead in 2024. While we can't reveal all the secrets just yet, rest assured that The Alakazam team has some incredible surprises in store for you. Alakazam will continue to evolve, innovate, and inspire, and we can't wait to share these moments with you.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
Before we step into the future, we want to take a moment to express our gratitude and wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Your support, enthusiasm, and passion for magic make The AlakaFam truly special. Thank you for being a part of our journey, and here's to another year filled with wonder, joy, and magic.
As we eagerly await the adventures that 2024 holds, remember that the magic is not just in the tricks; it's in the community that shares the love for the art. Thank you for making 2023 an extraordinary year for The AlakaFam. Until we unveil the wonders of the new year, stay enchanted, stay magical!
