The Badlands Bob effect has always fascinated me for some strange reason or other. It has been on my list for years, and recently I decided to do some research on it. I was tempted by eBay, but the prices were so low and it came from Asia, so I thought that it must be garbage. I was put off briefly when I read that some of you who have it, have relegated it to a shelf, because of it's consistent difficulty or lack of a good effect. Some have even sold it. Well, I went with my gut and ordered it from Viking Magic. It arrived yesterday, and I'm quite pleased with it overall. Coming from Viking, the quality is excellent, as would be expected. After playing with it for a while and getting the hang of it, I find it quite easy to manipulate. No problems whatsoever. If you like the effect that you see or read about, I would suggest that you purchase one from Viking. It is very precisely made. Even after I explained to my wife how it works, she kept saying, "But there's no room for that die to flip over!" And yet it does, for you only.

I love the effect as well. By all means buy from the source Viking and avoid the copies. There is a routine from Peter Nardi I believe that has the box wrapped in paper from the start which I thought was a neat touch. The spectator opens the package revealing the chosen number.

Very fun way to perform it.

And beware if you don't buy the Viking version. That would be a bad idea and you will end up like Bob!!!

Thanks for the video link mikenewman. I think Peters presentation really transforms the effect.

This is a brilliant effect now that I stopped using the gimmick supplied and just us a PK Rg....just hold the Viking box to your forehead and bring it down and its done...in any event its much cleaner this way whatever way you perform it...

A great little pocket effect.
however, the know-how was not for me.

having said that, it is a "worker".
