The Dutchman’s Dominoes by Francois Danis(c. 2008) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
The Dutchman’s Dominoes, has a very striking red and black box with gold trim and lined with red felt to protect the solid walnut dominoes within.
The finish and preciseness of these props is perfect. Francois has come a very long way from some of the early props he was making. The effect is a clean prediction of any of the dominoes. The dominoes are gimmicked and can be used either to force a specific domino (4) or with a simple ruse show that you predicted a different domino. They can choose any of the 6. The props are versatile enough it seems you could use them in a number of ways and due to the number of dominoes there are obvious tie-ins with dice.
This is a small enough prop with no real reset that you could even use it for walk around. It does come with an interesting patter story, as does all of Francois’ magic, but I’m not sure it would fit my style.
Effect: “Six dominoes are shown : a double 1, double 2, double 3, double 4, double 5, and a double 6. They are put on the table under a silk. The performer takes one domino out of the silk face down and put it under a glass in full view of the audience. A spectator is asked to think to one double, for instance the double 4. The performer takes out of the silk all the dominoes one at a time : the double 4 is missing, that is the one which is under the glass!”
Approx. Price: $250.00 (2008) ***Notice: I am not a dealer and this item is not for sale on this site. It maybe available in the links below or at our sister site: qualitymagicsales.com, but not from here so please do not ask.
