Simple but a great puzzler

This is based on a similar principle to an old effect of Alan’s Dice-A-Matic. But the adding of the initials is a real stroke of genius! I think it takes it from the trick class to the miracle class.

BTW, the wand was added in for effect, the original comes with just a stick!

Great magic and great props of course!

Sweet Surprise!

This is a clean effect with wonderful props. Five cards are shown four blank and a spot card. Also a piece of wood with 5 tacks embeded in it. You also show a cover with a large piece of wood going through it.

The piece of wood is shown to be clearly empty as is the cover. The wood with the tacks is held by a spectator under a hanky … then it happens. The card dissappears, a tack breaks off from the ones embedded in the wood, only to appear inside the cover.

Great magic.

5 Stars of Quality

The effect may not be Alan’s strongest mind blower, but it is still good. The box however is very beautiful so since I don’t have two ratings it gets a five!

The effect is simple: a brass coin dissappears from a holder in the spectator’s hands and ends up back in the carrying case.

Beautiful woodwork from Mr. Warner!

Another clever idea from Alan Warner

Nice props and a clever idea. The red block keeps jumping from side to side inside the box. We want it in the middle! Of course you do. And bingo, there it is. There is certainly no room for the blocks to turn over in the box.

Nice method and great props!

Excellent routine and props

Simple in it’s design and working, strong on it’s effect. Top quality props as usual from Warner. The effect plays better than it reads.

Very clever! Outstanding idea.

Once again a great idea and props from Alan Warner. Gaff is almost undetectable by spectator when inspected (allow a short inspection before hand). Worth a good presentation.

Another interesting idea

Once again nice props and a somewhat different effect. Not one of his best, but still worthwhile.
