I love performing Box Monster. The first rise of the card is the attention getter. When I spread the cards on the table and the second selection slides out, I find women back up as it startles them. Anyone else getting this reaction?

Yup, same thing. Only problem now is sometimes I cant control the speed of the second card. I think it might be the &*($!0n... You guys know what I mean. Also I'm set all day, Sometimes I get the Shuah SHau(code for Gimick) a little dark, anything to clean or just get another one?

Hey paisa23, sorry it took me so long to get back to you. Hope that info helped out? I've had great success with the effect since those minor modifications. Talk to you later.

The darkening of the gimmick doesn't matter one bit for me because of how it is used. It is never out in the open.

All the best,

Hey all,

I know on the DVD it says that this particular type of the gimmick is best for the effect, but I was wondering if anyone else had tried using other types of the gimmick. I find it kind of hard to make the gimmick and I know there are some that are already made for you. Any advice?

Hey quick question about the Special $%%^%. I tend to have Two on me at all times , I also notice that after a while they begin to, Well if you guys do as I do then you know what I mean. Also a lot of times I don't wear L$%^ S($$*$. has anyone ever been asked "What is that?" What do you guys say in those situations, especially if you are doing this as a Closer?

I have never had anyone notice the gimmick. In fact I have been so bold as to set up the cards right in front of them, and they never saw it. This is the one effect that none of my friends have a clue how it is done. It blows them away.

As for help on making the gimmick, just keep trying. When I first started I could not make them at all. I could not see it, I could not get a hold of it, but after one refill, I can make one in about 20 seconds.

I am having a tough time making a good gimmick.

When creating it should it be taut around the box? My rises don't even come close to the rises shown on the DVD.

I think it takes some trial and error to find the gimmick with the right t*****.

Wow, I have been having a lot of problems with this one guys,

It seems either my gimmick is too big and I don't get a good raise or it breaks...

First time I performed this it actually broke. No first raise. I would love to keep trying this effect, so does someone have an out if there is absolutely no rise because it broke?

Drizz,

I just got Box Monster and haven't had a chance to work on it, but I would assume that it takes some practice to get the gimmick made to work with your handling of everything. Keep trying - I think it's worth the effort.

Yeah, I know it takes practice. I remember the first night I was trying to make the gimmick I almost went crazy, though I got better at making them as time went by.

Some other tips given to me where use a new deck and scratch a few cards from the deck. I hope I'm not bordering on exposure. If so tell me and I will edit.

Box Mosnter is so cool. I find people being "spooked" consistently. Abd the DVD is incredible. Nate is such a good teacher!!!
