Live and direct from the Main Street Magic Shop, it's the Master of Illusion, the Prince of Prestidigitation, the Sleight of Hand Sultan, ladies and gentlemen – Yavn!

Hello! Hello! Greetings fellow gamers! Enjoying the new additions that recently appeared in the Kingdom? That's just the start of a magic! There's lots of exciting stuff happening so let's get to it!

He's a Magic Man!

First up, I hope you've had a chance to experience the magic we conjured up on Main Street.

The Main Street Magic Shop and Magic Shop Checkers are a huge hit and I'm really pleased to see everyone in the Kingdom enjoying them.

I told you we had some pretty incredible tricks up our sleeve and what's even better is we've got plenty more where they came from. Including the release of some Magic at the end of the month that will be out of this world! But hey, I'm getting ahead of myself...

Check out Checkers

Checkers? Check! Magic? Check! Playing a lot of checkers are ya? You wouldn't believe the amount of work that goes into making a game or bringing a new shop into the Kingdom. And it's because of all that hard work and our team here at VMK Central, the Magic Shop finally appeared.

If you checking out Checkers, don't forget to take the time to stock up on Checkers Magic Tricks in the Magic Shop before you play. A Checkers Magic Trick can turn the tables on your opponent and make the difference between a win and a loss. And speaking of tricks, don't be surprised, or upset, when somebody uses a Checkers Magic trick, the game is called Magic Shop Checkers after all.

"Yavn can you make some of these people in line in front of me disappear?" I'm working on that – I mean improving the wait times; I'm not going to make anyone vanish (unless you break the VMK rules and then you might just disappear from the Kingdom). For the time being, please be respectful to other players if there is a wait, and you've already won a few games, give others a chance to play. But again, we're working to improve the wait times.

While I'm on the subject, please, please, please – when you're playing checkers, treat other players as you would like to be treated. Don't ask players that are in the middle of a game to trade and don't harass players when they're waiting to play or in a game. Remember harassment in general is against the VMK Values and can get you removed from the game.

And don't forget to take a break from building your Checkers rank and explore the rest of the magic.

More Magic Up Yavn's Sleeve

So you probably noticed, due to the incredible popularity of Magic month, we're extended the Magic theme into February! That's right – we've got lots more tricks and magic items up our sleeves – like that magic I hinted to above. That is unless you don't want more magic? I can just put these back in – wha? Oh. That's what I thought. I mean, who doesn't want more magic? That and more February surprises are going to materialize.

But Wait There's More!

Alright just cause I roll like that, we've got plenty more to keep you busy when you're taking a break from Magic Shop Checkers:

- This Super Bowl weekend be sure to check out the VMK Tailgate Party. Not only will you get a chance to party with your VMK pals but our HOST will be out making the rounds to see who has the most spirit and randomly giving out cool football-themed prizes! Plus, everyone who logs in on Super Bowl Sunday will get this fancy, one-in-a-lifetime, one day only pin:

- Also be sure to check out the new VMK Disney DVD Quests featuring Hanna Montana and Twitches Too. These two new Quests celebrate the release of the Disney DVD's and you can win these cool exclusive VMK virtual pins when you play – just by completing the Quests. These Quests won't be around long, so be sure to play them soon!

Get the Hannah Montana Gold Microphone Pin when you complete the Hanna Montana One in a Million Quest.

- Noticed the changes in the VMK Gallery? Well then get over there and check them out! We're showcasing some unreleased furniture (I know, that Sky Car is very sweet) and conceptual art.

The VMK Mysteries

Finally, in the spirit of magic, I thought I'd wrap up this edition and talk about a few mysteries surrounding VMK:

First, whatever happened to our trivia section? Me, I've been scratching my head about this for the longest time. Well, I've finally cracked that mystery .

Seems our resident Trivia expert decided to take to the public speaking circuit, which doesn't surprise me considering how chatty he was – at any rate we've found another Trivia expert who'll be taking over starting Monday, February 4. And boy, does she know her trivia, heck, there's not much she doesn't know. Can you guess who she is?

Second, a few of you have spotted a mysterious fellow in a black cap in our calendar images (see if you can spot him in this month's image). Who is this stranger? Well, it's none other than oops, almost spilled the beans. Well, let's just say that in the future you'll get a chance to meet some of the amazing artists who make the awesome stuff you see in VMK.

Finally, thanks to everyone who participated in the Gingerbread Competition, and I do mean EVERYONE! Yes, I know, we had a little confusion with the prize descriptions – I want to personally apologize for that. Let me just say that's the last time I let the Yeti handle the prizes for any competition.

Alright then, we solved a few mysteries, announced new Quests, an awesome month ahead and did it all before my next game of Magic Shop Checkers! Now that's what I call magic!

See you in the Kingdom!

Out of this world magic? Maybe... "a whole new world?"

It was nice of the big guy to issue an apology for the gingerbread prize confusion.

    Yes it was. Also I like how he mentioned how much staff worked on the room, this proofs that it wont go away soon.

    Jeez what is this... Lost?

    Personally i'd guess TikiT since hes an artist but.. why would Yavn mention this guy to us, what's the significance of this man? And what secrets lie under that cap. Find out on the next episode of... oh nvm :goodvibes

    "it's none other than..." saying this may be someone "famous"
    Is he an artist? More TikiT style events (meet and greets)?

    Did everyone forget about the Host_Bella accident? Doesn't the stitch space ship magic fit this "out of the world" thing?

    I don't think yavn was trying to drop any hints with "out of this world". But after levatation magic, anything is possible. I just can't see treasure detector magic being full use, it would separate the gap between the rich and the less rich in vmk by a lot.

    Actaully Yavn hinted that he hinted the new magic...
    Yavn said:
    like that magic I hinted to above.
    Plus Yavn likes hinting, I don't think there is a Yavn Speaks without hinting...

    I was thinking that out of this world might refer to resetting the space suit quest (and other tomorrowland quests) to make 3 star available...

    I know this is very unlikely to be true but when Yavn said this:
    "That and more February surprises are going to materialize"
    I was thiking Invisibility Magic but then "Out of this world" it could mean anything. He also said some magic so does that mean at least 3?
