Nice props, average effect.

Once again Alan Warner has made an unusual trick with high-quality props. Although I am not familiar with all of his creations, from what I’ve seen this is one of the more weaker or average effects. A strong story-telling presentation is really needed to sell this routine.

Coins move all over the place!

As coins are fed into the box they change places all over the map. Simple, clean, and convincing!

Never Just a Prediction Effect

Alan Warner rarely does a simple prediction effect – he likes to add some magic in there too! So here we show the talisman as clearly blank, place it in the cartouche, have a color chosen and then tip out the talisman and whamo – the exact color they chose is now on the talisman. The cartouch is clearly empty and they can choose any one of the 3 colors with no force baby!

Great stuff from the genius in Cornwall!

This is beautiful!

This is a great routine with lots of changes and real entertainment. Alan is at the top of his game and this magic shows that. It is still hard for me to fathom how he can make such small magic, every little detail is so fine, that their appears no chance of gimmickry!

Beautiful, Clean, and Baffling!

When Alan Warner puts his mind to it his micro magic is quite exquisite. This effect is very beautiful to look at and the method is clever. Bascially its a simple clean prediction of the spectator choosing one of the 6 symbols. Great props and convincing method!

Clean and Simple Transformation

This looks quite startling when you see it. You show a think piece of wood with a round circle in, drop it in the box and dangle a cord through the hole and through the circle. Spectator chooses one of the geometric shapes, and places it on the box. After they pull it through, the piece of wood now has the shape they choose instead of the circle.

Quite amazing!

Colorful, different, amazing!

Alan Warner excells when he starts painting his pieces – they come alive! This is a great little effect that is easy todo. You place the peg into the slot so that there is no way the mummy can penetrate … and yet it does. Right under their noses. You are left clean before and after!

This is direct and nicely made!

Show three symbols, specator choose anyone and the box is tipped open – with no funny moves. There is clearly only one prediction in the box, and it matches.

It’s that clean!

No frills, but still works!

Alan is not breaking any new ground here with this probably his cheapest item! But although its simple it still works! Bascially, coin in placed in the box, taken out and it reappears. Even after they sign their name on it.

Fantastic piece!

This is a great Alan Warner item. The working mechanism in the case is amazing and clever. It will allow you to freely slip out the correct voodoo figure to match any combination in the spectator’s figure after free choice on 3 peg insertions. Incredible!!
