The Chest of Nostradamus by Collectors’ Workshop(c. 2008) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
What a beauty from George Robinson! 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 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.
Highly Recommended for Collector’s and Performers everywhere!
(Notice: this is the original version made in Oak that came out in 2008. The later versions were made of walnut as can be seen here. I like walnut, but I think the oak version looks better in this case.)
