This is good news. Bich puts out crazy stuff. Although I'm betting 10 to 1 it's a card trick.

Re: 2018 tenyo

Sooo I know its early still, but anyone have any hints or guesses on the new 2018 line?? Personally, I'd REALLY like to see more things that stray away from card and selection predictions. Between 2016 and this year, I've had my fill of prediction magic. I was a little bit disappointed that 2017 ha...

Re: I wish Tenyo would offer this type of deal

With magazines, you can get up to a two year subscription. I wish Tenyo would offer a deal where you can get a two year subscription to their tricks. Of course, that might mean getting a crappy one if they put one another one as bad as Flying Carpet; but it would be worth the risk. I don't know wha...

Re: Best/worst Magic Works exclusive

I have a question:

Invisible Hook. I know it's a rubber fish. After all these years, had it aged well? Do they have cracks and show signs of age and wear? Or does it depend on how it's been stored all these years?

Re: Collecting Milton Bradley"s Magic Works.

I wonder why no one has ever posted demos of any of the Magic Works Electronic Talking Toys on YouTube. The only one I see there is a brief television commercial for all 3. For some reason, I don't 'get' electronic magic. I know there is a degree of brilliance that goes into them, especially for th...

Best/worst Magic Works exclusive

Forum seems to be in a bit on Magic Works. All right. Looking at the whole collection, about 1/3 of it is non-Tenyo Magic Works exclusives, also made by Mark Sudecatti. Here's the list: - Eye of the Pharaoh - The Hidden Sun - Secret Slate - Missing Masterpiece - The Map to Skull Island - Tongue Tied...

Re: Help needed

I did a Google search for Luber's Ashtray, and the first thing that came up looked like a bigger version of Parabox except it didn't produce any balls. It also has a price tag that's ten times as high as Parabox. Why did he put the same trick out twice when the bigger one doesn't do as much? Parabo...

I wonder if he'll put out any more. He's my favorite one. I don't suppose Tenyo has put out any tricks where magic seems to happen in a spectator's hands like Sterling Lethal Tender, have they?

I know Invisible Zone is one of his easiest tricks to do. You'd have to be blind and have no limbs to perform that one because there's really no practice required. Blue Crystal isn't too bad, and neither is Anti-gravity Rock. I watched Penn and Teller Fool Us for the first time tonight. I figured i...

How many tricks has Lubor Fiedler invented? The only one of his tricks I don't like is Flying Carpet, but I'd say Card Surgery is his best one. There's only one thing I can't do with this trick that Copperfield did with the baseball card trick. God bless, Jason Irelan - Parabox - Invisible Zone - K...

Agreed, I'd say about 90% of Tenyo Japanese instructions can be figured out by illustrations alone if you put a little time and elbow grease into it.

I can think of one example of a world famous magician who exposed secrets to a non magician, and I'm not talking about the masked magician.

For something that's not satanic, it seems highly unlikely that God would hurt innocent people just to entertain an audience. Mel B may not be the most moral person in the world since she's been known to have a bathroom mouth, but I highly doubt He would go that far in her first life. If the old te...

Re: Least Favorite Tenyo

Some of the performers seemed more focused on baffling people like the Clairvoyants who kept saying they have ESP when they're just tricks. I felt that another one went too far in his performance because he used a voodoo doll, and those are satanic. If Tenyo ever put one out, I wouldn't go so far a...

Truth be told, A LOT can baffle the audience. The real difference, in regards to these talent shows, is if the magician is more entertaining. Look at Piff.

I do not have one, however they go for reasonable prices on EBay (around $30). And it's the more available electronic Magic Works (Spirit in the Coffin being much better, but has some fragility issues from what I'm told)
