Today I received my copy of Toibox and I was'nt let down. I was very impressed with the whole package. The manuscript is well written and thourghly explained with pictures to aid. The effects are all well structured and having recently performed some of them for my peers I can say I got a great reaction. I would recommend this as a great addition to any working mans repitoire.

Well I would like to thank everyone that has purchased ToiBox so far. The first printing sold out. I had the second edition printed today it officially includes the handling for handing out the box for examination directly after their card is removed. I also added another routine idea in the closing. Several of you have started sending me your own ideas and routines for ToiBox. I will keep them all on file and maybe write a second book of just routines. I will credit everyone for their submissions.

Thanks again, Jonathan

ToiBox has been updated with a new 6th routine!

Effect:
Spectator selects and signs a card. The card is lost in the deck. You show the mint tin empty and give it to the spectator to hold. You then make the signed selection vanish from the deck and appear inside the tin the spectator is holding. The spectator opens the tin, removes and unfolds the card to find it is the signed selection!

All purchasers of ToiBox have been sent a PDF of this new routine if anyone has not received it please let me know. Any new purchases of Toibox will include this new routine bound in the book. The ToiBox site has been updated as well.

Thank You, Jonathan

Just read the new effect Jonathan. It's a great idea! It just could be the best effect in the booklet.

Thanks guys I am glad you are enjoying the new routine. The new routine that allows the spectator to remove their signed card is an almost perfect routine. I have been using it for the last 3 weeks at work at the restaurant. It truly seems impossible to the spectator. I'll be at the Midwest Magic Jubilee this week with plenty for sale. Hope to see some of you there.

I noticed Mr Tivoli responding on this board. No one has mentioned his version of CTB... All I can say is "outstanding!!!" My favorite version yet! (although I love the DB too) The card is signed. The spectator removes the card. period.

I have talked to Mr Tivoli and his box does sound great. It does work differently then ToiBox. As for the card being signed and the spectator removing their signed card from the box. This can all be done with ToiBox and is included in the new Second Edition of the book. All the people who bought the first edition were sent a pdf to update their book. Everyone loves this new routine. It starts with an empty box, a specator signs a card, its lost in the deck. You show the box empty and give it to the spectator. While they hold the box you get their signed card inside. You never come near the box. They open the box and find their signed card inside. Everything can be examined! It has become my favorite way to do ToiBox.

I have been trying to find what the Destination Box looks like. Have tried Jon's site and there is a magic question that I do not have the answer. I do not know how many cards are used for Proffesor's Nightmare (I thought this was a rope trick).

If someone can direct me to a place where I can see a pic (and description) I would appreciate (I have done some seaarches and keep coming to Jon's site or places with no picture).

Thanks

Hi Meyegr,

You are no the first person to fall foul of the password question. You are right when you say Professor's Nightmare is a rope trick. As that's the case, how many cards does it use........? Smile

If you want to go directly to the dedicated page, it is at http://www.close-upmagician.com/destinationbox

Any problems, please feel free to drop me a PM.

Dear Shawn Griffin
Thanfs for your kind words.
I saw Jonathan, your new demo and I can tell you that with my simplex card to box, I can do exactly the same routine. My box can be used also with other props than cards...you can use it as a mentalism prop, well I can say as your box jonathan, that the simplex card to box is a very versatil prop.
Regards folks

Does anyone know how this effect differs from "Astonish Mints"?

Here is a comparison chart Jonathan put up on his site. http://web.mac.com/jonathankamm/iWeb/ToiBox/Chart.html

Jonathan, I don't agree with your chart:
http://web.mac.com/jonathankamm/iWeb/ToiBox/Chart.html

You say the Mystery Box doesn't have an instant reset or can't be set up in front of the spectator or can't be examined at the end. That's not what I've found. A tap to the box and you're ready. Use Larry Davidson's idea from his Scripted Insanity DVD ( Bobkohlermagic.com ) and it's not even noticed. The gaff is so well made, they can see the box after the effect.

I think your chart is slanted heavily in favor of your own product. Just my opinion, but I use the Mystery Box and can do what you claim can't be done.

Best,
Chris

Well, I mean, the fact that his chart is comparing his product to Kennedy's Mystery Box is funny in itself Smile
