The latest Magic Wagon release is available NOW (and probably for today only...)!

Mystic Mind Spheres

Based on an original idea from Mr. Jack Hughes’s Penetra-Spheres.
A beautiful tray is shown, along with a small wooden cup, a shot glass, and four different colored “balls” (crystal like beads). The wooden cup is then placed in the center of the tray and the shot glass is inverted over the top, making it impossible for anything to enter the cup without first removing the glass. One of the colored balls is freely selected and then they are all now placed in recesses around the shot glass. A cloth is then spread over the tray, covering the shot glass and the colored balls. The spectator is then asked to concentrate on the colored ball they selected and to the spectator’s surprise, when the performer removes the cloth, the chosen ball is now INSIDE the wooden cup which has remained covered by the inverted shot glass!!

Hi Simon, would you say this is suitable for a beginner??

Hi,

I purchased Mystic Mind Spheres a couple of years ago, it's a beautiful and a TOTALLY baffling effect, which I love performing. Suitable for beginners, as there are no sleights - but careful handling is required, to ensure smooth transfer of the ball to the cup. This is not difficult - just a little practice and familiarising of the mechanism.

Thank you Raymond that is very helpful. I have been offered one but am not sure what price to offer!

I paid £225.00 for mine back in August 2016, so a fair price now might be around £250 - 300. If you can get it cheaper, it'd be a bargain! Good luck. I made alternative balls from PlayDough, which I've found works better for me than those provided - cheap & easy to make.

Excellent I shall make the guy an offer and see what happens?
If you don’t mind me asking why did you need to make a different set of balls?

The original balls were solid and could 'talk' - there's no sound with PlayDough balls - but you must make them perfectly round!

That’s a great tip, thank you!!
I have just purchased so now excited to get it.
How did you manage to get them perfectly round??

Might take a few attempts, but just roll them between your hands, then leave them to 'set'. PlayDough is available in a variety of colours

AFA resale price, I have bought and sold a few MW pieces. I'm not a collector, I'm a user, and if I like an MW effect I will buy it if I can.
I realize certain MW items are going to have more value than others but it's been my experience that they certainly all do not go up in value. I have never sold one for more than I paid for it new. In fact, I've never even broken even. I've always had to take a loss, a couple times fairly substantial. So even though a fair price might be 250-300, if that seller were to list it here on the Café I would guess he would get under 200, probably well under.

Of course there are probably better ways to sell an MW item than to list it here on the Café. But my point is that folks shouldn't assume that all MW items are going up in value every day once they sell out originally.

Looking at sold prices on the big auction site I would agree with you video man.
My purchase was under the original selling price so I’m happy. My daughter will make use of the play dough when I’m done with it I’m sure:)

Love this effect and made a few tweaks that I shared on the Café awhile back. I found a nice set of wooden beads for it that fit better with the look of the prop. j.mori if you send me your e-mail via PM I will send you photos of the little additions I made.

Thanks for this great hint, those were exactly my concerns ...

but if there are possibilities for spare balls magic could happen
