Topic: Okito Box Magic With Two Boxes
Message: Posted by: PapaG (Sep 11, 2019 11:20AM)
I'm relatively new to Okito box magic and have just discovered a routine that requires two boxes and a switch.

So the question is, if I'm going to get a duplicate box, which type of box should I get? Which type which will afford me as much utility in other two box routines as possible? A duplicate regular box, a duplicate Boston box or a duplicate slot box?

I prefer the Buddha Boxes that all look the same,
so just getting a different one form the one you have should work for the effect.

I don't see why an exact duplicate should be required - just a second box.

If you found a routine you like doesn't it require two specific boxes already?

Standard box plus a Boston box. Nice write-up for this routine in Joe Cole's book "Walk Around the Box".

Thanks for the kind words Jim! The routine in question is "Transfer From Boston." Four coins place in one box, penetrate through the bottom to end up inside another held beneath it. It's a simple "solid through solid" effect but very visual.
