So its easy to get bored with my reviews of Alan Warner magic. I know I have trouble coming up with words that are different each time. The simple fact is that bar none Alan Warner is the number 1 micro magic inventor and manufacturer in the world today. I defy anyone to show me anyone else who is as prolific or as much of a craftsman as Alan Warner.
This effect is clean, beautiful, and very convincing. Any one of the teak plaques can be chosen, and the prediction is turned over to show it matches. The other plaques are then turned over to show that they are all different. No moves or steals.
I have spent two years trying to track this down and finally I got a lead from a fellow ebayer. Alan Warner sadly no longer makes this effect, but this set I picked up was in mint condition and they are beautiful.
The effect is similar to the $link(1337, Voit Mummies) with an extra piece of magic where the mummy is seen to actually float in the coffin. Then the transposition of the mummy going from one coffin to the other occurs.
Its a shame that Alan stopped making these, but I am more than a little pleased that I managed to track one down.
This is a clever effect form Alan where a spectator freely picks any of the 4 colors on the face of the case. The case contains four domino tablets. These are removed and spread out to reveal not only one domino showing the selected color while the others are reversed but, on turning over the domino, it is found to have a different back! The color selected is not forced and although the outcomes will always be “different”, the effect can not be repeated to the same spectator. The dominoes are very nicely done and the teak case holding the tablets is elegant. Recommended!
I was always a lover of $link(143,Acrobatic Silks), which itself was a modification of Ken Allen’s Monkey Bar. However, after seeing Kovari perform the original version of this twenty years or so ago, I have always preferred it.
This version by Viking is much smaller than Kovari’s original and it makes it all the more amazing when the surpirise kicker ending happens with the two extra “stunt” fish appearing.
Simple but entertaining with the right presentation
You get a simple but well finished teak wood case and the necessary dominoes to perform a bewildering effect of a domino always ending up showing the same side despite turning over the case. Play it with a sucker touch. The grand finale where the halves “twist around” ends the effect with a dramatic climax. Automatic in execution. Recommended!
