Haha, I was way off thinking that the top operated like the top on "Mini Phantom." Its really a nice MW trick and am happy with the purchase.

For me it's actually a bit of a let down it doesn't work like the Mini Phantom gimmick, but we can't have it all I suppose. The way you have to accomplish the appearence and dissapearence of the die in the litle box (according to the manual it is based on the Poker Pot trick: https://www.martinsmagic.com/full/close ... __5019.htm) is harder to do, but doable nonetheless. For me the problem is the litle box isn't litle enough for my small hands so I'll be taking a risk if I perform it :(

David, After the 1st move with the little box I set the box down on the table and explain what has happened to that point. That gives the opportunity to pick up the little box with the left hand and place it in the right hand to position it properly. Hope that helps a little!

Thanks Rick - will definately try it out on saturday for the 'wife-test' ;) This is a good trick overall and I believe it will suit more of a 'parlor' like stage, when the performer can walk around a bit showing everything to the spectators. Walking around gives the opportunity to do the moves too.

What I did was showing the 'dice' inside the little box and then doing the turnover move, put the lid on it and place it on the table, so that the 'dirty' work was already done. Then you can continue more relaxed :)

Here's a picture of all 3 Majestic Effects and parts of Poseidon Dice: http://www.tenyo.be/images/september2014/majestic.JPG (for some reason it is 'cut off' at the sides when I try to show it on this forum :?: )

I am starting to practice and if I have it 'nailed down' will make a video of it which will probably be in a few weeks.
The routine will not involve the Poker Pot from Homing Die.
In short: water is in vial (belongs to Hydro Die) and with Poseidons Trident a spell is cast over it - dice are put in and shaken. Numbers correspont to Dice in Homing Die. Die is taken out of Homing Die and is seen to penetrate a golden plate. The die is then put into the vial of Hydro Die and the water from before is used to fill the cylinder. What follows is the Hydro Die sequence and the die reappears in Homing Die. Et voila :)

And here it is, received it today!
For those who like old school magic, this is great!
For those who expect new clever mechanisms this will be a disappointment.
Hi Rob, ist this also made out of Resin or is it made of metal ?
These Resin tricks are very sensitive and susceptible to damage

Resin, like the other 2 majestic pieces. Only the stand is of metal.

David DeTenyo wrote: My idea is:
- three dice in Homing Die, one is taken
- with this die, Die Penetration is performed (yes, if you own Hydro Die you can use the same die for all three effects :) )
- after that, the same die is vanished with Hydro Die
- and is then found back in the Homing Die box :P
Your given routine sounds amazing good
Unfortunately one needs all 3 tricks for it
Maybe MW will offer a cheap set some day
