Tele-Vision Box by Nick de Palma

(c. 1992) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)

This effect was first known as The Mystery of Mysteries and was created c. 1880 by Martinka in the USA and Zauber-Klingl in Europe.

This is Nick’s copy of the popular mentalism effect released by the long running Dutch dealer and manufacturer Mephiso-Huis.

Nick’s version was ok, but nothing like the original versions.

Effect: You show two nested boxes with 4 blocks. You leave the room and ask the spectator to arrange the blocks in any order in the inner box. Then place the smaller box inside the larger and close them up. On your return without opening either box or any funny moves you can discern the exact order of the blocks. The inner box itself is opaque and there is no way you can see inside, but when placed inside the larger box this puts it into the miracle class!

    4 blocks are placed into a small box in any order, and there is literally no way to peek inside. Then this locked small box is placed into a larger locked box, secured with rubber bands, and covered with a piece of newspaper. The magician is able to divine the number without ever unlocking either box (really). This is a strong effect with a very clever method that I would have never guessed was possible.

    A quick secret move occurs while the magician wraps the large box in newspaper. I prefer mentalism effects where the magician can take a “hands off” approach. The visual tell necessitates good lighting. I think if different colors or materials were chosen, the numbers could be divined a second or two quicker. This seems like a minor detail, but a few seconds separates the amateurs from the professionals.
