Re: New 2017 Tenyo Line Coming Out on Thursday Sept.22

Question for Richard K- in the Japanese version of the instructions for Miracle Magic Square, there is a bonus trick where added numbers equal the numerical value of a particular date, ex, (for Nov 28th the sum is 1128). It seems there is a link to get the numbers for a date on the Tenyo website. Di...

Re: Best Presentation for Perpetual Puzzle

Looks awesome Si!!! I have to say that Perpetual Puzzle is my favorite of the bunch this year, and I think it is one of the best Tenyos in a long time. For me this is a solid 10, and with Simon's new design and some comedy elements like building the house without a bathroom- (love that and can build...

Re: It Tenyo but technically Japanese :)

Cool! I had about 15 of the original games in my basement from the 1980s. I spent my past birthday playing the original Legend of Zelda (took the day off) and beat the second quest.

Anyone knows this ? Fantasio Zig Zag Bill https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UAOEiX4g7lA It looks like Magic Wagon`s Ultimate Zig Zag Card and works quite similar. I'd love to have one of those - looks so elegant! I wanted one too- I posted that I was looking to buy the version made by Magic Wagon on ...

Re: 2001 +1 Redemption ILLUSION SCALE

This is my favorite Tenyo- it is beautiful and is so visual. I still remember the look on Simon's face when he saw it for the first time! I think it was largely overlooked for a long time. I recall having a disagreement with someone on the Cafe over this trick- that person thought the trick sucked.

Re: This one baffled me...

I don't think he used a magician's force for the heart because he says choose one that you want to keep. Perhaps some type of indexing system? It looks like he is loading it from underneath the table when he scoops the cards.

Re: Incredihole

It may work like the Paul Harris Immaculate Connection effect. The cards are face to face and have folds in them which suggests that this may be the method.

Why do you say former?
Good point- not that I forgot everything I learned, but former practicing chemist- been out of the lab a long time at this point.
