I see your Elite version is sold looks like you got a good price, but I don't know what one would have sold for not modified. Anyway congratulations, now on to another project. Smile

I spent around 80euros (+ price of the Four chance game trick ) to fabricate this version and it took me ten hours at least to finish. I sold it 93 euros. Yet it is a very rare trick, In fact I do not know anyone who has this one in his collection. Only 4 person place bids, while it was probably the only chance for collectors to get this trick because is impossible to find.
Although in the end it's a nice sum of money, but compared to the time invested and the cost of materials, it is not so fabulous that, far from it.
But that's okay, basically I had this idea to offer it to Glenn Duncan and thank him for having written all these great review for the blog, so I imagine Glenn will be even happier to have a copy because it will be even rarer, because I do not probably would build others copy. I'm happy to make him this gift, it was the goal.
It will stay a nice experience and I'm glad I tried to do something myself when I'm not the handyman ;o)

You did a very nice job on it and will become the rarest 4 chance game ever made so you have done something nobody else has with that you should be very proud of it. I am really surprised that only 4 bids were placed.

Maybe cause it is so obscure nobody knew what it was and just didn't even go look at it in their Tenyo search.

Might be better to make these elite version and not put them on ebay or if you do put it on "BUY IT NOW" price. Could just offer them to the crowd out here for what you feel is what you really think you want to get from it. That way if it doesn't sell for that price it doesn't get taken away on ebay for a ridiculous low price after all the hard work. If it doesn't sell you keep it and have a version nobody else has for your own collection. Smile It is just gratifying to do something like that to have for yourself and show to others what a nice job you did. Everyone likes to see this even if they don't buy it. Smile

Yuppers, I'm a lucky Dude! I think that the Four Chance Game fetched a good, but not excellent price at auction. Nobody seems to know much about this item as it is not even listed on the official Tenyo site. Stereo has done much to bring the annual Tenyo Specials into the light. Once it has arrived, I will do a detailed review for all on Stereo's blog. Mayhaps Stereo will take the odd order from folks around here if the effect is as good as my hunch says. Thanx again my friend. You're top-flight.

The 4 chance game trick is listed on official Tenyo website :

http://www.tenyo.co.jp/magic/catalog/sale_stop/op016.html

I hope nobody ever had any doubt about the fact that it was actually a real Tenyo trick I show you. lol


We can find lot of unknown trick on official website, for example there is a hole in 1983 with no T-tricks out this year, but on official Tenyo website we find a large unusual portion of trick with no T-numbers created in this period :

That Four Chance Game picture on Tenyo site looks pretty skimpy compared to your elite version. Smile

Yes it is possible to guess the effetcs by copying the japanese text into google translate. The result in english is approximate, but you must have used to force to read me lol
