Although not out yet, I was alerted to this by those in the U.S who saw the David Blaine special, checked it out on T11 due for release 10.10.08, put my preorder in already, looks like a proper killer although I think I've twigged how its done. I'll be sitting watching the post box from the 15.10.08 waiting like a little kid!

Anyone else going for this?

...Seemed a bit obvious, the marks from the coin (pressed into palm with thumb) didn't really match the ones drawn at the start.

Don't think lay people will realise the size of the x's, also theres no x's to compare it to

have a feeling this will kill if you have any creativity

Is this similar to the doodle pen sold by Murpheys and astonishment project?

Yes, it is similar to the Doodle pen but not quite the same. I don't see why this effect shouldn't kill for laypeople, you can use other small shapes instead of the X's.

Just wanted to clarify. The Magic Doodle Pen was NOT the effect used in the "Dive of Death" special.

Mathieu Bich conceived and created eXile alongside the DB crew - and that exact effect was performed by Blaine on the special. eXile includes every piece needed to learn and perform the effect.

I am interested in this effect, but just want to clarify that at the end the spectator can easily wipe clean the 'x' (or whatever you choose to use). I am assuming this is so, because I don't want to end up leaving ink stains on my spectators palms... I have never seen the doodle pen.

Well you don't want it to wipe off to easily or it may seem fishy, maybe carry some wet wipes with you, I'm sure a good scrub would work

I think you're missing the point somewhat; the marks should be of the 'permanent' type. Just ask at the outset "...I'm going to draw some marks on your palm, in permanent ink, is that OK...?"

And for those of you who always like to give away a souvenir (jeeeeez) hand them a small scrubbing brush...

I think it's a neat effect. Can someone assure me it's more than the ashes on the palm trick but with the coin doing the dirty work?

I preordered this also. Lay audiences love ink transfer affects, now imagine an ink transfer effect on someone's hands. They'll be starting at their hands the whole night! After seeing this done on the DB special, I really liked it, but I never thought it would be marketed so quickly. Very much looking forward to this, looks like a winner.

I did enjoy watching this on the Blaine Special just waiting for reviews before I order.

Don't think you need to wait on reviews to be honest, what you see is what you get, obviously to us the method isn't that hard, but once you have borrowed a quarter, done a false transfer and placed it on there hand does that make it seem more believable, as soon as that coin is lifted you have 5 seconds of misdirection to switch coins again, if you cant do a coin switch in 5 seconds this trick isn't for you

My question is, the picking up of the x's in eXile does it use the magic doodle pen? Cos I don't want to buy the same thing. I would go with eXile, for the presentation, and the coin bit and then go crazy with brainstorming other ideas.

Anyone knows?
Yours,

Ivan
