Five thin wooden tablets are thoroughly mixed and one of them is then randomly selected by a spectator. The performer then places the selected tablet to one side without revealing its face. Next, four small wooden discs are likewise mixed and another random selection is made by the spectator, his selected disc then being placed face down alongside the tablet he selected initially.
The performer now turns the discarded tablets and discs over to reveal that the tablets are dominoes of various denominations, and that each disc is a different colour. A small wooden ‘box’, which has been in full view throughout the foregoing proceedings, is now taken up by the performer, and then the selected tablet is turned over to reveal the denomination of the domino on its face.
At this point, the performer reveals that the ‘box’ is actually a wooden cover, inside which is a tray which he now tips out of the cover. Lying in the tray is a single domino. THE SPOTS ON WHICH MATCH THOSE OF THE SELECTED DOMINO.
The disc is now turned over to reveal that THE COLOUR OF THE SPOTS ON THE DOMINO IN THE TRAY MATCH THE COLOUR OF THE SELECTED DISC!
DECEPTIVE IMAGINATIVE APPARATUS!
This unusual piece of apparatus, which has been specially designed and works automatically, is made to the high standard of quality and workmanship that over the years has become synonymous with all magic apparatus designed and personally handcrafted by Alan Warner. The cover measures 9.25 cms x 6.5 cms and is made in teak. There is no force of colour, but the domino is forced. However, a subtlety in the routine supplied with this effect will convince the spectator that in both instances, his selection was made in the same manner and completely at random.
