Notice anything interesting about the "Mind Reading Blackboard"?

:-)

Anyone know the deal here?

On the cards you can clearly see 'Eddy's Magic'. Eddy's Magic sold a few Tenyo tricks with their brand name on them. Some say they bought a bunch from Tenyo and put them in their own boxes, some say they bought molds from Tenyo and made them themselves and a few think they just copied the items. From my experience the tricks in Eddy's Magic that resemble Tenyo are of equal quality (but I don't have a lot experience with them).

I never saw an Eddy's version of Occult Board, which makes me think you will not get a quality Spirit Slate trick. This is a good set for children I believe, but for that price you really can't expect to get good quality items. I actually almost can't believe the price, especially when you look up shipping cost ... it's almost for free!

The truth about what happened between Tenyo and Eddy's Magic will never be made public.

Thanks, yeah. Was an interesting find...
I wonder if the Occult Board in the above mentioned link is the same quality. It appears at face-value to be very similar.

What makes you say that Richard? I worked there when they first introduced Tenyo under the Eddy's Magic range and never saw anything that couldn't be made public. I still have in my possession a list of every trick they stocked from Tenyo.
