Beautiful and very Clean Prediction Effect

So its easy to get bored with my reviews of Alan Warner magic. I know I have trouble coming up with words that are different each time. The simple fact is that bar none Alan Warner is the number 1 micro magic inventor and manufacturer in the world today. I defy anyone to show me anyone else who is as prolific or as much of a craftsman as Alan Warner.

This effect is clean, beautiful, and very convincing. Any one of the teak plaques can be chosen, and the prediction is turned over to show it matches. The other plaques are then turned over to show that they are all different. No moves or steals.

Very nice!

Simple plot and clean magic

The hole in the card transforms all over the place! Very nice props as usual and nothing too tricky here!

Clever Alan item with a great impact

This is a clever effect form Alan where a spectator freely picks any of the 4 colors on the face of the case. The case contains four domino tablets. These are removed and spread out to reveal not only one domino showing the selected color while the others are reversed but, on turning over the domino, it is found to have a different back!
The color selected is not forced and although the outcomes will always be “different”, the effect can not be repeated to the same spectator. The dominoes are very nicely done and the teak case holding the tablets is elegant. Recommended!

Simple but entertaining with the right presentation

You get a simple but well finished teak wood case and the necessary dominoes to perform a bewildering effect of a domino always ending up showing the same side despite turning over the case. Play it with a sucker touch. The grand finale where the halves “twist around” ends the effect with a dramatic climax. Automatic in execution. Recommended!

Nice color matching effect

Straight forward effect. Nice addition to any Warner collection. Colorful ribbons cause dominoes to begin matching including one multi-color finale.

A color matching puzzle effect

Puzzle changes to reveal a selected color…slightly more sophisticated version of Red Chinese Puzzle. Can be a strong effect if played well. Another nice effect from Alan.

Beautiful and entertaining…LOVE IT!!

You get two beautiful teak pieces and special cards to perform a most entertaining piece of card magic. Alan always amazes me what he can do with teak wood and this is one of his better examples. Definitely get this one!

Simple and Clean!

Colored chess piece matches the color in the tablet it is placed. No forcing as Alan gives you all the necessary outs. Though the outcome can vary it can not be repeated. Simple woodworking but a nice addition to any Warner collection.

Different departure from Alan’s other themes

Geometric patterns transform through the influence of the mind on an altered dimension. WOW! Great presentation. Lovely teak pieces, carefully matched for those spectators with a keen eye. Very nice and unusual.
