Where, in print, can I find some real great Okito routines? I've been playing with it for awhile and have all the basics down but I'd love to get some new ideas for it.
Thanks for any info you guys may have.

Gary,

If you do not have David Roth's material on the Okito Box - two words.... get it.

You asked for stuff in print - he has a whole section of his book "Expert Coin Magic" dedicated to Okito box magic.

I would recommend however purchasing his video, "Expert Coin Magic Made Easy Volume 11 - Okito Box Magic" If you want to really get serious with an Okito box - the video is invaluable, and probably the best resource out there for it. The video covers Okito boxes, Boston Boxes, and Slot Boxes.

I think there might still be a thing on allmagicguide.com about an okito coin routine where the coin goes through the table. You might want to check that site. It has photographs and stuff too. Hope it helps. Smile

Check out Bobo's Modern Coin Magic. It has some short routines that can be put together to make a longer one.

In my lecture notes which come out in a few months I have put my Okito box routine. They are £10 or $20

While not in print, it is on video and Mike Borenstein's lecture that is on video has my favorite Okito coin box routine, which does not involve penetrations but has the coins travel one at a time into the box. Very well thought out routine. I used to do it and then finished by switching the regular box with a plug box which I covered with the lid and challenged any person that "If you can get all four coins back into the box I will pick up your entire tab for dinner".

I must say, Roth's video is excellent. After watching it my creative juices started to flow and I created my own Okito Box routine that I am quite fond of. Highly recommended.

Paul Harris offers a creative routine that uses a lip balm container (emptied of lip balm!) and quarters, in Art of Astonishment.

Mambra,

Actually that routine as I wrote it up is performed standing. You let the coins and box dump into a spectator's hand. I did not have a spectator when I filmed it so I just used the table.

There is more going on there than a regular Okito box as well.

I have a couple of Okito routines in my soon-to-be-released book "Profiles in Coinage."

Hi.

Dan, if you can perform standing your Okito box routine, I did not understand where you pick up the Okito which go "through the hand" at the end.

It is NOT a question. I do not ask question to magicians (that a must for me, as I do not like to *answer* questions...) Smile

Anyhow, I like that routine.

Cheers

mambra,

This is how it ends standing up....The spectator's hands are cupped under mine. The Okito box falls into the spectator's hand. Then I dump the coins on top of my hand into the spectator's hand. Then I one by one put the coins back into the Okito box, put the lid on, take the box back from the spectator, and put it in my pocket.

Thank you Doc (and Paul Harris) for the idea of using a lip balm container. It seems more ordinary and trustworthy than the standard Okito Box.
