CHRISTMAS MAGIC CONTEST!

Post by PeterW » Fri Dec 07, 2018 6:57 am

Dear Tenyo forum members, with Christmas quickly approaching I'm feeling like giving back and what better place than here on this great Tenyo magic forum! I'd like to host a Christmas magic contest!

Many of you know I craft exotic wood puzzle box creations and recently I've turned my crafting skills to magic props. I've recreated an effect called The Corandi Dice Box and I'm giving away a copy completely free to one of our Tenyo forum members. This effect is an heirloom quality prop made from Peruvian Walnut with handcrafted Maple dice and finished with rubbing lacquered and a microcrystalline wax. A beautiful addition to any magic collection!

The contest will run for one week from December 7, 2018 to December 14, 2018 (Eastern Standard Time) in order to give all Tenyo forum members an opportunity at entering, with the winner being announced on Saturday December 15th.

Here's how to enter: I'm currently thinking of a Tenyo T-number between 1 and 287. The Tenyo forum member who guesses closest to the T-number that I am currently thinking of without going over will win this crafted Dice Box effect!

Rules: Tenyo forum members may only guess once, if you guess a second time I will ignore your second guess and your first guess will stand. If two Tenyo Forum members guess the same number I will select the forum member who guessed that number first.

If you are not familiar with this effect I have put together a quick video showing a performance routine here, it's not perfect but will give you an idea on how the prop can be used: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1jSTy0 ... x4-BYK-Tm2

Many thanks to this wonderful magic community, Merry Christmas!, and good luck to all!

T-144

I didn't look up the name of the trick; you only mentioned you wanted us to select a number.

Many thanks Richard and others for the kind words! Thanks also for all the guesses! Numbers are fine, but if you want to throw in the Tenyo names that's fun too! :)

Congratulations to you Øyvind - you are most certainly someone on this forum who deserves to win this, I may say, exquisite item!

And of course above all a big applause for Peter; not only because he organized this contest but also for donating one of his wonderfull and of course very unique, handmade items!
