Re: Mini Pool Balls Prediction or Bomb Proof

I like Bomb Proof more if I had to choose. No electrics... I believe I know how this works. I have a similar effect with 5 cards on a display, Made in India, price about 25 euro... Clever principle ! Rob, do you think it is that simple as you believe ? As i understand this trick you can choose any ...

Strange there are no reviews as most should have their copy by now. I wonder if people are disappointed. I have received my package now and am not disappointed on the whole ... Optically this is a beautiful trick and with the handling it is a little tricky. I would say this is not a trick for every...

Re: Magic Wagon - Chinese Lion Mystery

I got mine yesterday and I love it, it works differently to how I thought it would but in a very positive way. The pedestal doesn't fit between/inside the legs of the platform which I clearly demonstrate at the end. Its a winner in my opinion. That sounds exciting, I haven't received my package yet...

Re: Magic Wagon - Chinese Lion Mystery

I like it as a collectible, but I don't think it is a good trick Even if it seems obvious, it's a classic magic trick, in addition a second appearance sets a highlight At first I wasn't that impressed but now I'm very excited about the detailed artful workmanship The table, the pedestal and the squ...

Re: Magic Wagon - Chinese Lion Mystery

My opinion is: what a stupid trick ! I don't find this trick so stupid in the Magic Wagon version at all Through its small size and "double appearance" it has its own charm With a convincing presentation, the effect can also be quite impressive This seems to be the original Aldini Bowl Production v...

I love the look of this, I'm in. I'm not sure if I'll choose it, the trick is quite obvious even for a layman, even if he doesn't know exactly how it was done technically. The good thing about this MW trick is that it has never been produced by Magic Wagon before .. and is therefore a real novelty ...

Re: T-106 Ribbon Forever

I like the thinking behind this trick but I've never been able to perform it properly as in the instructions. When pulling the ribbon i find it tends to slide around a lot throwing off the illusion. The timing also has to be exact. Perhaps with enough practice I could have gotten it working right b...

Re: The Greatest Magician In the World

I bought the German version for 5,- EUR at that time, over 15 years ago in Hugendubel book store if you are familiar with. I bought several books, sold em partly and gave it to friends as a gift. I only have 1 now :(. They were so many in the stack of books and they are still brand new sealed. I sh...

Re: This looks very familiar!

There is now a 3d version of Ring Escape, called Ring Tower I like all three versions, whereby the tower is even more pleasing from the effect sequence but does not look as noble as the other two versions. The safe version is suitable for a modern narrative but I tend optically more to the Red Chin...

Re: This looks very familiar!

Yes, you don't have to push the wand down, but pushing the wand down, penetrating the ring and box, does enhance the illusion in my opinion ... but that could be just me ;) NO - you are not alone - for me just this optical sword penetration is the main effect ! This expensive version looks very goo...

The book is also hard to get new at an acceptable ...
