Tile Deal by Winston Freer, Karl Norman(c. 1986)
Wow! Winston Freer was a Genius!
What an incredible miracle this effect is! Very different in method from anything similar that I have seen. In a nutshell the effect is this: a puzzle fills a frame and is made up of 10 different sized pieces with 7 x 9 = 63 squares. On 3 successive tries a single tile is removed. Each time the puzzle can be quickly reassembled and each time there are 63 squares. In the end, the puzzle is put back into the frame, and even though 3 squares are missing it still fits the frame precisely the same as when you started.
Now for the good news, nothing is added or taken away, the props and moves look clean, and there are no false compartments or slides. It really is as clean as it looks and reset is as easy as counting from 1 to 10! Learning to actually do the moves will take five minutes or so, however, performing it will take a little longer so that the presentation flows nicely with the amazing effect.
This version is much more cheaply made than the one by John Rogers. It works the same way and some may feel it is more authentic but I’d go with the John Rogers version if I had a choice.
