Mystery Blox by PropDog, Steven Macrow, Nicholas Dakin(c. 2019) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
For almost twenty years I have been performing John Kennedy’s amazing and beautiful Mystery Box. I’ve purchased every variation of John’s box that came along and also many other Card to Box variations. But to this day I still prefer John’s version (I use Mystery Box II, but all of the early ones have pretty much the same impact). The Mystery Box is perfect in almost every way, and I have not wanted for more. So when this new version came along from Dave Bonsall’s Propdog I didn’t really expect anything to change. Boy was I wrong …
What a clever idea filled with significant improvements over every previous version I’ve seen. Using legos is such a good idea because they look so innocent and normal. Even though no one has ever commented on the Mystery Box not looking normal, clearly it is a special box. But making a box out of legos in front of the audience and then tipping out their signed card from the lego box a few minutes later is simply beautiful and a genius idea too. Mystery Blox will be the version of this effect I use going forward.
Really amazing stuff from PropDog, Steven Macrow, Nicholas Dakin, this is just perfect, thank-you so much for bringing it to the community 🙂
Effect: Mystery Blox is a great idea by Steven Macrow and Nicholas Dakin and brought to life and produced by PropDog. Based on the Kennedy Box principle, the spectator picks and signs a playing card (not forced) the magician then assembles the four walls of a lego box in front of the spectator, places a lid on the box very cleanly right in front of the spectator’s eyes.
On opening the box, the spectator now sees a playing card inside the box. The magician then tips out the card to reveal the spectator’s signed card.
The box comes with a red card gimmick ready made up for you that just needs a few minutes wearing in. All you have to do assemble a few lego pieces and you’re ready to go.
We also give you:
- 2 red card gimmicks
- 2 blue card gimmicks
- 1 paper with question mark gimmick
