Hi, I bought this last week so I would like to share this with you.The effect is exactly as shown, everytime you perform it you will have a different outcome and there are no outs. The effect is 100% self working and very easy to do.
A few points to consider, this isn't a strolling trick and doesn't reset, you can't just pull this out of your pocket and go, so for strolling magicians look elsewhere. The plus side, the effect looks impossible and used in the right place it is a very strong piece of mentalism. The coins are pretty much stuck down, well enough so the spectator can casually try to dislodge them, the coins can be borrowed and there are no outs whatsoever. You do need another gimmick which is supplied, while this works brilliantly one or two people may find using it a little inconvenient, as I did, so I came up with a way to eliminate it and made up another gimmick which for me works a dream, and no prior set up is now needed.

Was it worth purchasing, definitely, the effect looks impossible to the audience, the method is very clever and with a little thought even one of the gimmicks which for me was a little inconvenient can be adapted to make it always ready to go. (Those of you who have this please email proof of purchase and I will explain my gimmick, gary@garyjonesmagic.com )

Has Gary got back to anybody that contacted him about his idea for the gimmick used? I understand he is busy, though I emailed him Sept. 16th about his idea and he never got back to me? If he did get back to anyone with his idea can you please PM me?

Thanks!

Whoops sorry RNK! I have contacted/replied to quite a number of emails but some have obviously slipped through the net so please accept my apologies my friend. If I just say here that I push the coins into position with the eraser end of a pencil would this make sense ;-)

If you want to resend me your email if the above doesn't make sense I will get straight back to you, just to let you know though I am back on the road from Tue to the following Sun!

Gary.

The factor that no-one has yet announced is the "announcement" of the travelling coin(s). I have coinCidence & it is a Great trick! Yes, the coins do perfectly align themselves with the spectator's uncanny ability (or the amazing precognitive capacity of the mind-reader) to connect the coins on the 'table-top to the PREDICTED coins below, but there is a noise factor that I'm surprised about; namely that (as far as I have read) how can the sliding action on the coins get past the spectator's hearing level; unless the person's high-range has been damaged by too much heavy-metal listening (pun intended for those in the know). But in my little corner of the world . . . give the spectator some ear-plugs before you slide the coin choices into their freely chosen positions, and then we can say that it's truly a MIRACLE MIND BENDER! I do hope that helps and I think there are ways around it, but as Johnny Mathis sings; "It's not for me to say . . ." but pm me, if you like and I'll sing the rest of the tune on the way to handle what I consider the weak point of an otherwise really impressive and well-made ESP style presentation.

EZ, just have patter to say while sliding the coins.
How many magicians does it take to change a lightbulb? Regardless, for magicians darkness is a time for d'lite.

Wayne Dobson's "Taking Notes" is just as impressive to me and uses ungaffed currency, albeit not coins. It always works.
The secret of deception is in making the truth seem ridiculous.

I did a lot of updating to make this effect a killer effect. PM me if interested.
