Re: T-185 Puzzling Queen

I have the same problem! But In view of your remarks, I do not give a bad vote for the moment, I will try again. When I received Puzzling Queen, I tried it and could not do it well. I went to sleep with my wife, and as it pissed me off, and about one hour later I woke up, I lit the light and tested...

Re: CUBE THROUGH WAND

Yes Øyvind I must admit that the recess in the bottom is a weak point in this version, it's a bit sloppy made...
But with a more clever design you could overcome this weakness...

Re: T-131 Moons of Jupiter

I agree that this is a very good Tenyo item.

But because the discs are rather large, it's not always so easy to perform it fluent, as David already stated.

Re: CUBE THROUGH WAND

Update : I sold this trick to Joe Long years ago. He was able to produce a smaller version, in his Ltd Edition Magic range. Recently I was able to buy a copy of this smaller version, which I like a lot. I made a video of it: https://youtu.be/-VBRhO20iLw I traded my 2nd copy with a very talented guy ...

Re: Magic Wagon - Utopia Prediction Box

I absolutely agree David, the move can be done unnoticed, it's the 'disease' of many magicians: while spectators have no idea how it's done, magi fears that spectator see something suspicious. If your handling is smooth, nobody notices the 'dirty work'.

There are many ways to do the handling very casual. It IS a clever item because... No I won't tell :)

Re: Magic Wagon - Utopia Prediction Box

I received my Utopia Prediction Box today, and I'm very satisfied with it. It works basically the same as Wayne Dobson's Add-ict, produced by Mark Mason :) The 'suspicious' move is only suspicious for other magicians or the clever spectators. I like the look of it, and you can end totally clean. You...

Thanks for the info JohnB! I have none of the other two, so this will be a valuable addition to my magic props :)
