Topic: Help finding a match effect
Message: Posted by: Dennis (Jun 4, 2003 10:34AM)
I hope someone knows where I can find this effect. I've been trying to find it for awhile...

You balance a paper match on a matchbook,
cover them with a glass, concentrate on the match and it falls off the book!

...and if I remember right, no threads and no magnets.

I can't remember where I read it!

I think I remember that being in the excellent book by Paul Daniels, "Adult Magic." I don't have the book at hand, though, so I'll have to check when I have time.

Try Martin Gardners 'Encyclopedia of Impromptu Magic' as it will probably be in there.
