Re: Quarter Pounder by R. Paul Wilson

Yes, looks interesting. However, it appears this is actually not new at all, it was invented by Steve Duscheck back in the early nineties, and published by him under the name "Hybrid Coin" (at least when it comes to the gimmick itself, the routine is probably not the same). Whether it is easy enough...

Re: Tenyo 2019 - Print Impress (my presentation)

Yes, that was a splendid presentation. There is a little stumbling just as you are about to paint the Van Gogh picture, but it doesn't detract much from the overall impression.

Re: Saqqara Mystery - Magic Wagon

Already one for sale on the Café, $199 :o including postage in the United States, I know the seller and he posts world wide for a low cost. That's perhaps a bit surprising, but I'm guessing the seller might have expected a new and clever mechanism, which it does not have (as far as I know). It sure...

Re: Mini Pool Balls Prediction or Bomb Proof

David, using mini bicycle cards could be a good idea, since the cards will appear (and also be) as totally innocent to the spectators. I think I'll order some mini cards, as I don't have any of those. Making a device isn't all that hard, but to make it totally silent and examinable takes some effort...

I suppose if you feel certain you have discovered another way the trick could work, then my (and David's) guess is wrong.

Re: Mini Pool Balls Prediction or Bomb Proof

I don't mind electronic tricks, but in the case of "Bomb proof" (which is not electronic) I can only guess at one viable mechanical method. Since this is in the open forum, I will not mention any specifics, but I really like the idea.

Re: 2001 +1 Redemption ILLUSION SCALE

That's a rather easy trick to make yourself, too. Can be printed on paper and laminated. Tenyo also did something "extra" to the standard version of this illusion (not just the ruler), as far as I can tell.

Re: New Forum Software Version

None of the "Quick links" works for me. I just get this message:

"The specified search backend doesn’t exist."

I tend to use these quite a bit, so hopefully it can be fixed. Other than that, it appears OK (but I've only had a quick glance).

Re: CHRISTMAS MAGIC CONTEST!

I've been playing with my new little gem multiple times throughout the day, and it is a very nice little trick. However, I'm not confident I'll be able to do the performance as Peter does in his demo video, at least not without a lot of practice. The sleight isn't very complicated, but the hand that...

The fit and finish is every bit as good as the pictures will lead you to believe, it has been made with great care and accuracy! It takes a very skilled craftsman to make something like this, and Peter most de...

Re: Tenyo 2019

I'm also struggling to guess how Chocolate Break works. The only suspicious move is when he covers the whole bar with his hand, I think I can possibly see something going on there, but the whole thing looks really clean. Just hoping it's not one of those tricks that looks very good on video, but in ...
