Hi Guys

Here's the first review of Token, courtesy of the Scoopmaster.

You show the spec a small envelope containing a silver token. The envelope is placed aside. Then the spec selects one of 5 ESP symbols, no force. The envelope is opened and the silver token is tipped out showing their chosen symbol laser printed onto it. Your prediction is 100% correct. The token can be examined as can the cards and envelope.

I took this out to a lunchtime gig today. IT KILLS!

Paul has put together a strong, simple and very clever trick here. A self contained set of props produces an effect that defies explanation. This is a very clean trick from the specs perspective.

The DVD is excellent and covers the set-up and a number of handlings. As usual Paul presents the trick to his lovely wife Wendy Ann.

I bought mine at Blackpool. I don't think this is available on the Elmwood Magic site yet.

One of my top 3 buys at the convention.

Well done Paul. Smile

Cheers for the heads up, Jamie.

Am I right in thinking Wendy Ann didn't spend Paul's TUC on Monster Munch? Smile

Yeah, not on Elmwood Magic site yet. I'll have to keep an eye out for it. Everything I have purchased from Paul has been excellent!

Thanks!

Saw this at Magi Fest in January. Really nice effect. Paul is one of those guys who puts out awesome material that sells great at conventions but I never hear much buzz about on the internet. So bizarre as he produces some of the best workers stuff out there.

Then again, I don't see much buzz about most good, practical, real world magic on the internet. The stuff that gets all the buzz are the pipe-dream YouTube effects that no one would ever be able to perform in front of a live human being (i.e. most ACAANs, coins through bottles and self levitations).

But I admit, I am the complete opposite of most magicians. I don't care if an effect fools me. I like stuff that will fool lay people. If it fools me, great, if not, as long as I know it will play for lay people, I'm all over it. Paul puts out real world magic. Some of it will fool you, some of it might not. But all of it is novel and will play great in the real world.

I totaly agree with cameron,it's not as we see it through our magicians eye but how it plays to the lay persons, this gives us the platform when performing the art of magic and entertaining.Re: Token I also purchased this from paul at blackpool, great effect.Paul is a really nice guy fantastic magician/magic dealer.

Has anyone heard anything at all about this effect and its availability?

It never did show up on the Elmwood Magic web site. Hopefully Paul is still planning to release this.

Thank you.

He is selling it, but currently only at conventions and at the Real Magic Dealer Shows.

Yes, must agree also with Cameron...I'm unable to resist getting anything new by Paul. Not only is he a great teacher, the things he comes up with are usually very, very good, easy to perform and fool the pants off laypeople.
My friend Danny alerted me today of this one, and we both ordered it.

I saw it at the Road Show and also saw how it works. VERY smart thinking behind it and very workable. Not something I would do myself (just a style thing) but I really appreciated the effect itself. Could be structured as a very nice opener.

Ordered this earlier today. I haven't received a disappointing effect from Paul yet, so I expect great things with this one too!
