I don’t know how many of you have seen the Da Vinci Code, but I found a cool item that can act as a very theatrical bill tube. A company called The Noble Collection sells all sorts of replica movie paraphernalia…Harry Potter, Batman Begins, Da Vinci Code, etc., etc.. They are currently selling a miniature replica of the Cryptex that was seen in the movie. You can set your own password (five rings = MONEY). Couple this with a vanish and a Shu***e P**S and you have a very theatrical version of a bill tube. Here’s a link http://www.noblecollection.com/catalog/p......catid=52
Thanks,
Lou

For fans of Da Vinci Code and magic, this price is a steal, IMHO. Cheers!

I have a Da Vinci Code book test that I have been interested in using as long as I can find other ways to incorporate a bigger play. I've been looking at this Cryptex for a month or so.

The "look" of the Cryptex could be just the prop to develop many plot ideas for some mystical effect.

Evolve629 did you purchase one?

You could have a lovely routine, maybe, where you ask someone to think of a word, and it turns out to be the password, and after opening it you find therre note etc. don't know how possible it is, but its an idea.

I did purchase one (the small version), and it looks and feels great. The code-wheels are free-turning though (no 'click'), so you'll have to allign the letters perfectly in order for the cryptex to open. If even one letter is slightly off-center, it will remain shut. Not a big deal, but you might want to mention it to the one who needs to open the cryptex.

There are two versions of the DaVinci Code Cryptex; a small one (which I have), and a big one, which is packaged in a beautiful wooden box (just as in the movie). You can change the password by loosening 2 screws with an (enclosed) screwdriver en removing the rings. You can only reach the screws when your cryptex is open, so do not forget your password! Smile

When you want to see a sample trick (performed by Philemon), click here.

Very excellent routine. Is that basically what you get with the D Code Book Test (less the Cryptex)?

Unfortunately I don't own a copy of the Book Test yet, but according to the description this is what you get... Smile

Frankie the trickshop book test is not like this method. Read the description again.

Eh? Smile

Methinks there is a small misunderstanding here; I never said Philemon's trick and the DaVinci Code Book Test routine are one and the same... I meant that, since I don't own a copy of the Book Test I couldn't answer Pete Biro's question, so I pointed him to the description of said test instead (the link under the word 'this', being the same one as your link). Smile
