Re: Total Serendipity

I received my cooy of Total Serendipity. It's typically old school magic. You can't show the bottom side. But it works precise and with little noise. Yet I can understand that not many will like the whole concept. For me it is special, because in 2019 I must stop buying magic tricks. So I also won't...

Re: Tenyo 2019

So I'm a little excited as I've put in my order for Chocolate break, but then Christmas is on its way so I splurged on myself and also purchased Quarter Squeeze, Magic tester, and Collectors Workshop's version of Alan Wakeling's and Jim Steinmeyer' Loaded Dice! Wooohoo, can't wait! Yes Chocolate Br...

Re: Total Serendipity

Agree with JohnB, the whole thing alone looks suspicious, specs may freely shuffle the tarot cards, then each deck is placed in the suspicious looking item, the openings are covered with a wooden lid. Patter patter etc. The wooden lids are removed, and now the spectators may take their freely shuffl...

Re: Total Serendipity

It's pretty obvious that there's a switch. Therefore you need the wooden tray. It looks nice though, and I am fond of tarot cards. Let's see what the price will be...

Yes that's what I noticed too. In the description the wooden prop isn't mentioned! It is as if the wooden item isn't necessary) :D

Re: Tenyo 2019

I also received the first 3 Tenyos. The Chocolate Break is absolutely the best of the three. Very clever idea which I haven't seen before! The ideas of making a box or using an existing wrap is up to you. I am satisfied with the enclosed wraps. The Screen Clean is OK, but the idea is not new. Maybe ...

Re: Tenyo 2019

I ordered the first 3 Tenyos at magicshop.nl. Will receive them tomorrow.

I'm also very interested in how the chocolate trick works.

Mid December I will order the remaining 3 Tenyos.

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 ...

Re: Magic Wagon - Chinese Lion Mystery

Glad to hear that in general you're happy with your purchase. I believe that this trick uses 2 principles 1 the small stand with the lion inside sticks magnetically inside the tube 2 the lion pops up with the help of the cloth. Please let me know if I'm wrong. Hope you'll manage to do an elegant per...

Re: Magic Wagon - Chinese Lion Mystery

That's a good point Bob … It's definitely less impressive than the stage version ...


It's probably nice if it's permanently placed on the chimney piece. When someone admires it, you can do the magic. But then the cloth must be already placed of course.

Re: Magic Wagon - Chinese Lion Mystery

Well ok, the trick as seen on the video looks stupid and pretty old fashioned. I didn't mean to say that the MW version is stupid as well. The MW version will be for sure an improvement, and fun to perform. And it has the extra surprise of the lion popping up. Of course it's all in all great that yo...

My opinion is: what a stupid trick!
