I don’t understand, does the card actually produce smoke?

Huh? I don't see a suggestion of smoke in the description, where did you come up with that?
Nope, it does not, and I don't think it should...

Walt, the ad copy says the "Genii Lamp pouring forth a swirl of magical smoke". I believe that is what he was referring to in his post.

So it's Out to Lunch with a new design? Not exactly the clearest or most readable description I've ever seen.

How is this different from the "Genii of the Lamp" trick in Mark Wilson's book?

Hi Donald,

One difference is that the Genii does not "appear" he's here already, and grants a "wish."
But the method is not the point, as it wouldn't be for the Professor's Nightmare either.

What's being offered is a routininig and clever presentation that ups the ante,
the value, and entertainment of the piece. And as I said provides a gift without obvious marketing.

And, yes, the puff of lamp smoke is printed on the card,
you can always get a smoke machine (sold separately... grin)

I agree ... the description really doesn't explain what I am getting for my $13. I'm not saying that it's not a $13 value, just that "granting a frivolous wish" is a bit vague and not enough to induce me to buy.

I do see your point Starrpower,

Because the value (your $12.95) is in the presentation and script, there is really not to much that can be said about it in a post. Obviously the working is not a huge curiosity to most experienced magicians.

The presentation is brief and lighthearted. Since it's not a heavy piece, the wish that is granted is also lighthearted, thus "frivolous." Wack-O-Magic kept the price so low as the method is traditional.

If you know my work you have a feel for the content and the feel if it’s worth the price for you, though I don’t think that’s much to spend for magic these days. If you’re thinking it may not be right for you please don’t spend the bucks, get something you know you’ll use.

As mentioned, it is a simple design, and only the website or email is added
--so while they'll have your contact, it's not a pushy marketing ploy like some “giveaways.”

I've had great spectator responses to this, and people have found it charming, which is why Wack-O-Magic wanted to put it out. And you can always PM me if you want to ask something specific.

I really appreciate everyone’s interest!
