Egyptian Canopic Jar Mystery by T.A. Waters(c. 2002) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
Here is another version of the T.A. Waters’ amazing Box Office which has been recreated so many times it is hard to keep up.
The germ of the idea for this creation came from reading an ad for an effect by Dexter: Box of Bombay.
You start by showing a beautiful box that has a top tray with 4 Egyptian Canopic Jars featuring the 4 Sons of Horus: Imsety, Hapy, Duamutef, and Qebehsenuef. You take the tray out and remove a deck of mummy shape cards – just to keep the mummy theme going. You also show 4 cards of the jars and without showing the spectator you chose one as a prediction and place it in the bottom part of the box. You then replace the top tray so that no one knows your prediction.
The spectator now chooses a card from the deck, and then selects any one of the 4 jars (no force involved). The tray is lifted out and the spectator reaches in to find the one prediction matching the jar they chose. Now the spectator opens up the jar and finds a prediction in the jar of the card they also chose and we come to the end of a great mystery!
