How do think this might work with "Ultra Gum"? And will it work with the new style of Dentyne and Trident packaging? ( see about half way down the page at: http://www.themagiccafe.com/forums/viewt......tart=270 )

There's a few things going on here.

You can change cards into gum. You can also change gum into cards, or do a reveal of a chosen card and produce a full deck of cards from the box.

I made two of them today in red Mandolin and blue Mandolin ( you can use any brand of cards ). I worked on it and have some things to do tomorrow and will give it a road spin and post tomorrow how that goes.

But, I can tell you the download is thorough and it's easy to make, easy to do. They could have supplied a pre-made gimmick in let's say red bikes and teach you how to make more, but you'd pay $35 for that and a dvd. I much prefer $19 with a download and I can make my own in any brand I choose in about 15 minutes.

The demo shows only one thing you can do with this ( I think they should show more of how versatile it is ). I like Dan and his work, so it was good enough for me.

More tomorrow, but I'm VERY pleased with this!

I don't have the other gum tricks out there, but I used it yesterday to go into Sanders Ultra Gum. Dan says you need Dentyne Ice to make it up.

I like the card box into gum. I think that's the most visual and fun to do, but others may prefer the opposite. If you like the demo, then it's for you because it's as easy to do as it looks on the demo.

BIG thumbs up from me!

Sean, I had to look at your pic to make sure it wasn't my wife posting as she says the same thing. I'm just happy it's the magic bug I have and I don't travel the country doing dog shows ( no disrespect to to dog show people ).

Steve, the gimmick is easy to make and as expected, it's a big surprise when the card box changes into the gum. The reactions you'll get is worth the little time making it.

Thanks, Zombie! Just got the download and will be working on it over the weekend. Looks like I'll have to use the older style Dentyne box. Seems like all our wives have a lot in common! Best regards - Steve

Just went to the store and did the card box to gum for the counter lady. It's a great reaction getter.

I carry gum every day since I stopped smoking, so that's why this appealed to me. I have Dentyne with me anyway, so I'm not carrying anything extra.

This is off topic, but reading many of the posts here on the Café, it seems like we are all married to the same woman. Is that possible? Seems to me like she is the only REAL magician out there, because she can be in several different places at the same time! Uh, oh- here she comes- gotta run!!!

BatsMagic, it's frightening.

I'm sure there are just as many magicians that are divorced from the same woman.

Thanks, Steve! Been a little busy lately. Too much stuff going on at home, both good and bad. I'm sure that you know what I mean. Unfortunately real life gets in the way of fun. But just because I'm not commenting doesn't mean I'm not paying a visit! I just don't have too much to say lately. I haven't gotten anything new in a while- as Zombie has said in another thread, the wife is a little upset with magic purchases. Oh well. I'm just trying to work on old things that I gave up on a while back. I see a few things that I need though. I'm sure that the magic wallet will open soon enough! Luckily school starts on Tuesday. At least that gets the kids out of my hair. And don't get me wrong- I do love my wife and 2 kids. Let me go on the record about that!

Happy Labor Day to all here on the Café!

My girlfriend often says 'I think you love magic more than me' I always tell her she's wrong and I love her equally as much, if not a little more! Smile

Good answer, Sean! At least I think it's a good answer. But what do I know?

Anyway, ChewBoxa looks nice to me, and since I use Ultra Gum, this would probably fit in well with my act. This is on my list of things I NEED to have. I just can't get it right now!

What is the difficulty level on a scale of 1-10. End clean/examinable? I also have an arsenal of great gum magic that this would facilitate and enhance nicely.

Thanks

Easy to make, easy to use. Not examinable, but that shouldn't be an issue because it's a surprise like a color change and you move from that to another trick. I carry and use it ( I ALWAYS carry gum since I quit smoking ).

My preferred way is playing card box to gum. You get a really nice display.

Anyone getting this, take the time to make the gimmick and perform it. The reactions you'll get will be worth it.

It looks neat but what is the get in get out. I am guessing that this cannot be used as an actually card box. You must have some reason after you cards at put away to take out the box again.

This is a visual change of a card box to gum or the other way. How, what and who you perform for is up to the individual performer. I'm a hobbyist, so going from this into Ultra Gum or just to offer a piece of gum or take one myself, I don't have a reason to bring the box back out.
If that's what they are interested in, then I'm not doing it or any magic properly.

Any in-deepth reviews? Smile I would especially like to know, if the effect can also be performed with small hands?

Hand size is not an issue. I do the version at 00:34 into the demo, changing the card box into the pack of gum.

I still use this. My favorite way to use it is to ask them to name any card in the deck. No matter what they say, I change the deck into the gum and say "that's interesting, most people name the xyz". I LOVE when they say "no thank you". I then change it into the gum and say "how about a pice of gum"?

Anyway, I see it's the Cool Box deal http://www.penguinmagic.com/p/2806

The dentyne gum that is used by Dan is no longer available. Dentyne switched the dentyne ice package to something called double pack (Dan even says this will not work in the video). Has anyone else tried a different brand of gum? Thanks for your tip ,Zombie ,regarding the dollar stores and contacting Dan personally...unfortunately I have not had any luck with either.
Again, has anyone else tried a different brand of gum or found a good source for the Dentyne gum pack? I am dying to try this out!

I echo your sentiments! The Download ended up being a waste of money for me, because the gum companies can't make up their freakin' minds about how they want to package their gum.

12 packs?? I have busted my butt going around to every store I can find trying to find the correct gum for this effect AND an effect on Calen Morelli's DVD, function 9, and these effects seem to be out-dated by the time the DVD gets on the market, because as I said, the gum manufacturers can't make up their freakin' minds.

Remember when you could actually get individually wrapped gum for Sankey's Juicy Fruit effect?

It's maddening! Why can't they just leave well enough alone?

All that said, I will thus end my fulminations and pleadingly ask if anyone here has come up with a way to construct the effects in question with what is currently available on the market?

Or, is it just ME? Is it just the fact that I live in a smaller town, and maybe if I lived in a bigger city like New York the bigger stores would carry the specified gun packs?
The difficult must become easy, the easy beautiful and the beautiful magical.
