I have performed magic in some unusual places and I'm sure some of you have as well. Three come to mind. Guess where any ONE of them was and you'll win the contest. If no one names them, the winner will be the one who came closest.

Please submit your answer as #1, #2, and/or #3. The place can be a geographic location, a venue, event etc.

The winner will receive an autographed copy of my second book, Kingdom of the Red, along with the 95 minute companion DVD. About half of this 240 page hardcover book deals with card magic. The rest includes, coins, bills, balls, dice, rings, ropes, predictions, original apparatus you can build etc.

The winner will also receive one genuine wooden nickel and my magic business card when I was a teenager.

HINTS:

#1 I was performing a card trick and I was very anxious and so would you in the same situation.
#2 I was performing with sponge balls and it was very hot
#3 I was showing a ring and rope effect that I hadn't planned on doing but I needed to do it.

RULES:

No associates of Gyromagnetic Press may enter the contest.

Enter as often as you wish but please don't paste the table of contents of a world atlas as your entry etc. Smile

If more than one correct answer is given, the one that was posted first will be the winner.

Best of luck. More hints to follow as needed.

My guesses:
#1 I was performing a card trick and I was very anxious and so would you in the same situation.
At the United States Playing Card Company
#2 I was performing with sponge balls and it was very hot
A sauna?
#3 I was showing a ring and rope effect that I hadn't planned on doing but I needed to do it.
At a gymnastics competition. I imagine you performing for an gymnast who specialised in the rings.

(Please let me know if I should've PMed)

I'm not trying to be funny, so if my answers are incorrect. Please don't be offended. (It's just that you said unusual places)

#1 A toilet

# 2 In Bed With A women

# 3 While proposing to your wife

These would be quite unusual places I think.

Oops! (Originally missed the word, 'unusual'.)
Now substituting it with: A prison.

And let's just hope not all three at the same time!

But to have a guess..

#1 I was performing a card trick and I was very anxious and so would you in the same situation.

I know a prison has been said already but I'm going to be more specific - on death row in a maximum security jail

#2 I was performing with sponge balls and it was very hot

In the middle of the Amazonian rainforest

#3 I was showing a ring and rope effect that I hadn't planned on doing but I needed to do it.

In a tattoo parlour for a customer having some piercings done, to distract him (or indeed her) from the pain
