I just received my Chest from George at Viking/CW and it is an incredible piece of magic. The craftsmanship is top notch as you would expect from C.W. and the execution is flawless.
George has constructed a great piece of magic that you will love to perform. It is so clever, and will fool everyone you show it to. The chest and deck are gaff free and are handled by your spectator the entire time.
The Chest of Nostradamus is a must for any serious collector/performer. You will love it and use it.
New items from my good friend George Robinson at Viking Magic are few and far between. So when this item arrived in the mail last week I was particularly excited. The box looks amazing and intriguing with the chain. The effect is as clean as a whistle and there is absolutely nothing to find.
In effect you dangle the box from the chain in front of a spectator and inform him there is a deck of cards with a prediction inside the box. You ask him to mimic cutting a deck and count how many cards they have cut to and to look at the card at that position. This is all done in their mind. Next they reveal where they cut to and open the box and they take out the cards and prediction – the cards are not touched by the performer. They now count down to the number and show the card, it matches the prediction.
This is an beautifully clever idea which has a number of possibilities. The amazing thing is that the box and deck of cards are 100% ungimmicked and nothing is added or taken away. And yet you can always predict the card they will count too.
When George puts his mind to something you can always be assured of the highest quality, and this is one of those items that surely will keep everyone guessing.
It is a beauty George!
Most Highly Recommended for Collector’s and Performers everywhere!
So I remember when the Gravity Box came out how everyone was excited by it. This box is so much better – it is much more solid when set, the inside of the box can be shown without fear, and the actual setting of the unit is done by the spectator!
There is absolutely no budging it when set – not sideways or up and down. It is just too "heavy" to budge. The construction of this box is also very finely manufactured and the box itself is quite heavy with a strong solid clasp at the front. Although the method is similar to the Gravity Box, it seems more realistic on this box because it is already that much heavier. So when the spectator suddenly is too weak to lift the box, it is much more plausible. The base even has some black-art going on, so it looks like you can see under the box.
Altogether, a much better thought out product and a real fooler.
