One Very Special Box…Thanks, Alan

Alan celebrated the new millennium and the year 2000 by issuing this limited edition boxed collection. It consists of 8 effects housed in a gorgeously done mahogany veneered hinged box. This item was limited to only 12 sets and each accompanied by a signed certificate. The effects vary from simple classics to very nice originals that can stand up to Alan’s more formidable pieces. I particularly like Geometric, Kubika, and Candle Candle. This beautiful collection would be the envy of any magic set collector. Forget Mysto and other "collectible" magic sets, this is more reminiscent of those antique wooden magic sets of the past, all handcrafted with meticulous attention to esthetics and function. You really need to see this set firsthand to really appreciate the workmanship, as images are clearly inadequate.

Alan has always proved himself a master craftsman and inventor, but he is also a most generous man. I will particularly cherish the Millennium Box I received because what started as an honest mistake led to a remarkable gesture from Alan. 2 weeks ago, an inquiry regarding 2 effects in this collection led us to believe that No. 12, the last box in the series, was still available. I ended up paying for what was eventually unraveled to be a sold-out series. However, Alan, in the kindness of his heart, promptly offered me his own box, No. 1, from his personal collection of his magic. I was quite taken by such a gesture and I can’t thank Alan enough. This unique piece will definitely hold a special place in my Warner collection.

Great prop for forcing a color

Want to force a particular color and do it with CLASS? Look no further than this beautiful prop from Alan. I will give this one a 5 because the workmanship and operation is so good. I like the idea of using Card Case 20 with this prop for a really mind-blowing effect. Love it!

What a routine!!

This is one entertaining piece of magic you can not miss. I have seen numerous special mention to this item from Alan in the magic forums whenever his name comes up for discussion and after finally getting it for my collection, I can see the reason for the enthusiasm. It has the best of both worlds…great teak apparatus and an involved lengthy routine that entertains. A whole show in itself!!

Another impressive Warner piece!

Very clever prediction and it comes in twos! I could not believe the method and construction involved to accomplish the effect. I just kept examining the key component to the effect and I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. This is vague but further details would mean revealing the secret. Trust me, this is one excellent piece of magic. Thanks again, Alan.

Not Actually an RnT Product but Nice

This effect was actually put out by John Snyder, who joined Rings ‘n Things toward the end of their reign as kings of aluminum, brass and copper products.

It was released by RnT in their latter years (1977-80 or so — the company disbanded in ’80), under the auspices of Snyder — who eventually caused the downfall of Rings ‘n Things.

This was the only plastic item RnT ever sold.

A good effect using a Stripper deck.

A card is selected, placed back in the deck, which is shuffled by the victim, and placed into a plexiglass houlette with a perspex rod running through it.

The rod is flicked out and the deck falls the rest of the way into the houlette.

One card remains above the deck.

Of course it’s the chosen card.

Nicely made and an interesting use of a Stripper deck.

The "Ultimate" card case?

This case is truly marvelous…THREE changes and not a single sweat to perform. The workmanship is, of course, impeccable. Alan picks teak with beautiful grain patterns for these pieces since the case is "large" and easily showcases this gorgeous wood. The accompanying instructions provide 20 ideas for the card case, so it has so many possibilities. I bought Colourama specifically for this case: the two pieces complement each other in one sure-fire routine.

Love this straight forward piece

This is one of the simpler effects from Alan but a piece to cherish. Its just gets lost among the other fabulous magic from this genius of a man. Though straight forward in execution, the gimmick is beautifully done and the craftsmanship of the entire apparatus definitely deserves a 5+.
