To enter, follow the instructions below:

The following sentence is incomplete. Fill in the blanks as you wish. However you need to pick the name of an EFFECT from the Table of Contents from The Book of Destiny. Use the link provided. The 2 page pdf of the Table of Contents will provide you with many effects to choose from.

The effect you take from the Table of Contents is a name only. You need not be familiar with the actual effect. However the Table of Contents is divided into cards, coins, balls, rings, and apparatus so that should help tell you what category you’re dealing with.

“The magician became______ while performing (choose effect) from The Book of Destiny because his assistant ________ which caused ___________ .”

The best entry will win the prize. Your entry can be humorous, thoughtful, insightful, deep or incredibly shallow, creative, sarcastic, clever, etc. Let your imagination run wild. You can also substitute “spectator” for “assistant” and “her” for “his” if you wish.

Follow The Magic café rules of etiquette of course.

Enter as often as you wish.

Employees of Gyromagnetic Press (including Okito) not eligible.

Contest will run for one week. After that, the WINNER will be announced on The Magic Café. If you win and already own The Book of Destiny, you can choose from two of my other books, Kingdom of the Red or 21st Century Coin Mechanics, or comparable priced merchandise from my website.

Best of luck to all. I look forward to your creative submissions.
