Knot A Chance by Royal Magic(c. 1991) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
This effect is a version of Bank Night with ropes. The Spectator gets to chose any two ropes out of the three that are available and of course the rope that is left has a knot tied in it, and a $100 bill tied in the knot! It does not come with the box, but I found it lying around and thought it was stronger if instead of holding the ropes you were hands free and the ropes were all in the box up front. You can do it anyway you want. Easy to do and surprisingly convincing!
Effect: A new, novel, different version of the classic “Bank Night” effect. The magician displays three ropes in his closed fist, offering a cash prize to the spectator that can select the rope with a secret marking on it. Despite his best efforts, the spectator’s two selections are NEVER correct. The specetator pulls two ropes from the magicians fist, and neither has the secret mark. Offering to show the spectator’s what they were missing, the magician opens his hand. The secret mark he alluded to was, in fact, a dollar bill (or whichever denomination you can afford) tied to the rope! The magician removes the bill and unties the knot. The trick is self-working, and comes complete with three hand-knitted ropes made in Europe. There is no equivoque or forcing – the spectators really do have a free choice of ropes.
Approx. Price: $29.95 (2004) ***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.
