I finally got around to getting the 2013 tricks and here are my initial thoughts.

Clear Surprise - This is my favorite so far. It will go right into my Tenyo performance case.

Card Surgery - I think it will go in the drawer with the likes of Eye of the Idol, Crystal Pyramid, Anti Gravity Rock, etc., great tricks to play with but too big to carry around to perform. Although I might change my mind on this one.

Memo Pad - If I practiced this one in the kitchen, there would be a bunch of quarters under the refrigerator like Simon had experienced, but I was practicing in the living room so they wound up under the couch. I have to practice some more but I don't think this one will not go in my case either. I don't understand why the non-plastic part of the gimmick is so complicated.

Miracle Coin Thru - IMO this one Tenyo totally missed the boat on. This should have been a self contained unit (similar to Dice Explosion) with a clear lid and a locking gimmick. I can't see carrying around a large glass and a coster to do this trick. I do a dime and penny trick where the dime disappears in a tissue paper. The audience always asks, "where did the dime go?" A self contained utility device to make coins appear/reappear would have been more useful then what the trick is now.

Overall - I hope Tenyo is not drifting away from what put them on the map for tricks using more organic items. There are plenty of people producing organic magic tricks. What I really liked about Tenyo is the cool props and mini illusions that they produced in the past.

Stereo,

I am not totally sure what is meant by organic in the context of magic, but the guys on the Wizard Product Review use that term a lot.

I think it means that the props are ordinary items.

The 2013 line would all be considered organic since the props are cards, envelope, clip, paper money, coaster, glass, coin, memo pad, pen, etc.

If you step back to 2007 you will see that all of the tricks released that year (4D Trunk, Koornwinder Kar, Presidents Cabinet, Mystic Blackboard, Credit Surprise) were the opposite of organic.

Look back to 2003 and before and you will see that Tenyo magic released back then were the opposite of organic and these are the ones we love the most.

I think you mean "crazy" not "schizophrenic."

I put them in the drawer but not the bottom drawer. They are just to big to carry around.

Simon....great Idea with the band-aid for Card Surgery... and the tiny strong m too.... it works great....Also, with the Magic Memo Pad, instead of drawing a pail, how about (for anyone who owns "instant Radio"), draw a jukebox on the pad, then insert the quarter to start the song, then with the instant radio you have music!

You Can insert the first coin but nothing happening And the coin desappear without sound. You then insert the second coin and now you can hear the clicking sound as if the coin really fall in the jukebox device and now the music start.

Stereo- excellent idea- (with the first and second coin). I do not own "Instant Radio", but I understand that is very small and is easily hidden and was thinking of buying it (not only for this effect but the device in general)... I wonder if its small enough to stick to the back of the memo pad and activate it from there. Stereo, do you happen to have "Instant Radio"? I believe I can use the "Magic Memo Pad" gimmick for a slightly larger pad, giving a little more room for the "Instant Radio" gimmick, too.

Instant radio is more designed to be worn on the body and would be a too bulky to use as suggested. I would go to a card store store and buy a "recordable" greeting card. Strip the small unit out of the card and mount that on the back of the pad. Could also buy one of the music cards and say it is your favorite song on the jukebox.

I just received Miracle Coin! The flap is completely invisible in all directions and works great.

The most natural handling that I have seen for the Card Surgery!!:

Well, yeah: that's Ponta the Smith performing. However, he's got the dish turned the wrong way. The black art lines will be visible to a layman if the dish is turned so the narrow end is toward you. You can't see them on camera.

Hi Richard, Could you explain further about which way to turn the dish in Card Surgery? It appears to me that more of the black lines will be visible if the dish is turned with the long side pointing towards the people watching.

The largest edge which must be hidden is the one where the cut edge of the corner is located in the center of the long side. If the dish is turned so the narrow ends of the card are to the left and right, then this visible edge of the black metal corner piece under the real card corner is invisible from the audience side. If you have the dish turned 90 degrees to either side, then this small line is visible. Study the drawings in the instructions carefully to understand clearly exactly how the two loose quarters of the card are angled. They must be angled exactly this way for the black art to hide the visible edges.

These edges won't show in a low-res online video, but in real life people can see them quite clearly since the dish is sitting on the table for a few minutes.

I'm not making this up: it was told to me by the guys from Tenyo.

I just tested the trick with my grandmother (85 years old but you don't fool her easily!). Richard is absolutely right, you really have to put the pieces EXACTLY as the manual sais and make sure the petri dish is turned the right way. The manual is very specific about this.

She was baffled by the way, that is to say for the first part. The second piece didn't 'adhere' correctly and the trick was ruined. Practice people, practice!

The sound issue isn't an issue if you talk during the performance by the way.

What a great trick ... and easier to do than I expected, no one is focusing on your .... .

If the second corner and magnetic piece didn't get picked up, it's possible the magnet is not in the optimal place FOR YOU in your hand. Don't be afraid to experiment with putting the magnet in different spots. The base of the thumb is a good place for me, because it's a meaty part on my hand and goes lower with less effort.
