Message: Posted by: Hudson892 (Jun 6, 2015 01:53PM)
I was wondering if someome could help me locate the name of a trick I saw a while ago where coins are layed out in a square with ten coins on each line, three in two corners and four in the other corners. Another coin is then placed on any pile and when the rows are counted, there is still ten in eaxh line! I think Francis Menotti used to do it with buttons, but it's an old principle and can't seem to find it anywhere...

Thank you for this. I would have searched myself but I didn't know the name!

I did not know about the triangle one in the other thread. I have seen the square version performed and I learned it from an effect called "The Pennies by Giovanni Livera. http://www.penguinmagic.com/p/S16200
