Here's the trick Tenyo Special 1997 Four Chance Game in wooden improved version.
This trick almost impossible to find nowadays because only available for the Japanese is one of the "Tenyo" trick who has the most success when I present my collection to my friends and I made ​their magic tricks
each time it is this magic that most interests my guests, may be due to its design, which recall the casino, or perhaps because it is a trick where the spectator becomes the actor to try to win the $ 1000. I've always loved this trick and that's why I decide to make an improved version to make it even more beautiful and practical.

The original version consists only of cardboard, tokens are cardboard, and for the rule of the game you had to put a sheet of paper on cardboard to hide and reveal the steps slowly. Not very practical or attractive. Also provided the dice was very tiny.

So I made a version with a wooden frame painted around the game board, metallic silver /black tokens with a bright colored sticker and with felt underneath so they slide easily and do not damage the game boards, chips worth $ 1,000 has been redesigned as a gold piece. I also created a wooden box to store and present the 5 coins. The inside of the lid is magnetized to put and show the chips of $ 1,000, while the other four are ranked in the lower part of the wooden box. I changed the small dice against a large nice transparent red dice.
For the instruction board I made a case framed with wood, illustration depicting Dollars bills on the face. There is a kind of "drawer" that slides up so that viewers can read and learn the rules the one after the other. Original rules were written only in Japanese, so it was impossible to perform the trick without understanding the Japanese language, so I made a version in English (French and Japanese versions are also available) so that any anyone can use and understand the principle and instructions. I completely Hand Made this upgraded version of Game Four Chance and I think the result is successful and is really worth this awesome magic trick and makes it more enjoyable to make. I would put on sale soon on ebay.

You can see the original version on my blog :

Thank you! I am not at all a handyman But in the end by thinking a bit and looking for simple ideas, it is possible to do something fun and ultimately I'm happy. It made ​​me want to repeat for other effects. It's actually nice to tinker. It took me even a lot of time but the result is worth it. Plus I know this trick is rare and that few people have it in his collection, yet it is a really great effect, that deserved to be part of the main line because it is really incomprehensible and clever. I've always loved Tenyo Special trick because they often use very ingenious mathematical principles in an original way, and they are often underestimated and forgotten by collectors. With hindsight and the time and after completing my collection this has become my prefered effects and those most dear to me. Frankly, Ghost Puzzle, Illusion Scale, Magical sneakers, magic Calendar, magician clock, Fortune Telling card or Four Chance game are real pearls.
I really hope one day to find the 4 that I miss, as prediction egg, Pokerchip In The Moonless Night or Telephone telephatie. We can say once again that Tenyo really done a good job with these bonus tricks by offering high-quality effects. Last year I really enjoyed Mind Roulette, I'm a little disappointed with the one out this year, Charisma, that uses cards but I hope that next year Tenyo begin again to do a unique design as the old.

Wow great job Davy!
That is done really well looks very professional.
I never seen the original or know the effect but this one looks fantastic!
Don't stop at just this one, remake some others that are favorites that need upgraded!
You should concentrate on designing your own effect with all your knowledge on how many things work.
I think you have found your niche, keep it up you may surprise yourself what you can come up with next!

You can see the description of effect on my blog on the link I give.
Auction does not unleashed the crowds for now. Wait and see if my efforts will be rewarded lol. In any case I am already very happy that you find that the result and design is successful ;o)
I guess better now of the apprehension and the difficulties that have the team that created the Tenyo Elite line. Hard to imagine the success that may have a product. Besides, I've often thought about doing a book about all the Tenyo tricks, but I'm fairly sure that in the end there would be very very few potential customers.

I have read the description, is this more of a game than a magic trick?
Good luck with it on ebay should do well with it.
Maybe you should add to ebay description: THIS IS THE FIRST ENHANCED ELITE FOUR CHANCE GAME MADE AND ONLY ONE LIKE IT AVAILABLE ANYWHERE "NUMBERED #1 AND SIGN BY THE INVENTOR" DON"T MISS THIS ONE!

Unfortunately, we do remember as the posts are still on the Café. Too bad you were attacked for that, but people have every right to sell whatever they wish.

Good luck with the auction. The Four Chance trick you re made is very nice Smile.
