Used this last night for the 1st. time & will be using it tonight.

Great reactions.

David has his table top card under box routine on the DVD.I have done my own card under, on, inside of box, deck under box & inside box for years, so it's very easy for me to adapt it to Mystery Solved. David's routine is great (but so is mine lol).

As said by other people(& I agree), examination of the box is not an issue. One small thing I noted is that the "folded" card in box is bigger than what a folded card is. However, as people(unless they have mental health issues)never ever fold cards into quarters & stick them behind watches, in their mouths or in plastic boxes this is never noticed.

Thank you Mr Penn for releasing this to the magic community it's brilliant.

Very pleased with this effect. Can't fault it.

100 % recommend it.

Great release David.

I received this today. Watched the DVD and it was very informative and professionally produced. I have been using Mystery Box II for many years now and I really like this being out in plain site so people can see the card. Still processing the powerful reactions tonight doing walk around -- they were FANTASTIC!!!

Very nice job on this David.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

Thanks buddy

So glad you like it. Smile

I gotta say that I am completely overwhelmed by the amount of messages from people using Mystery Solved in innovative ways. With their permission I need to find a way of sharing them.

All the best

Here's my presentation which makes sense:

Start showing the box "empty" and cover the box with a small cloth. Have the specatator select a card and sign it. Do the MF on the selected card. Have the spectator take the cloth off revealing a folded card inside the box. Take the lid off the "dump" the card out. This is my presentation. Makes total sense. Box empty. Spec holds box. Spec selects and signs card. Card appears in box WITH spec holding box. Card is their sign selected card! Enjoy! Thanks Mr. Penn for Mystery Solved!

Just received this and am quite happy with it.
Can't say that it is a significant improvement over Regal's Clarity Box (the small sticker on the back of Regal's never bothered me) but the smaller size definitely makes it easier to carry around, especially if not wearing a coat. Of course Southworth's box is even smaller but I do like the innocence of this one as it really does appear like it is completely clear. But Southworth's box looks a little more like an everyday object but MS has a classier look to and it's easier to customize your gimmick on MS.

For those that feel compelled to have it examined it would be a simple matter after you dump out the card to start to place the box back in your pocket but then "remember" the person is still holding the lid and immediately bring out the box and hand it to them and ask them to put the lid back on. This may require you to buy the trick twice but if you want it badly enough there is that option. Personally, I don't see any need.

I highly recommend the Penn box though, nicely made, great method, and a very good DVD too.

Thanks guys

I'm sorry to keep boring you by saying this but thank you all so much for the great feedback. A special thank you to the guys that have also taken the time to review Mystery Solved.

Wayne Fox was at WMS today and I really wanted to share with you two of his tip out techniques. They look great on video but the retention on the first one in real life is crazy. We only uploaded it to the WMS Facebook page but this is the link to the video:

I've been playing about with mine for a week now. I came up with very very similar handling to Wayne's - Now really confident to go out and perform it.
Over the years I have had over 6 card to box routines. Think this is finally the one!
looking forward to replacement boxes hopefully becoming available.

Glad your enjoying it TheBentos

Please share with me any other moves or handlings you come up with.

I think I may even change to this new way of tipping out. Wayne is so slow and steady when he does it. I need to slow down a bit!

Cheers

Got mine today but opened the black box and it was empty!! I am sure that is the disappearing cube trick. Contact Penguin and see what happened. At least I have the dvd!!

I have changed the grip slightly when I do the move, I think it adds to the overall illusion at the end, I like Wayne's dump move, especially like the fact that the performer is holding onto the lid the spec then takes the card and the lid can be quickly and easily replaced without having to find out where the spectator has placed it, hope that makes sense!

Hi Guys

I hope you are well and getting ready for the festive season Smile

I have been having fun with a new way to perform the card to box with Mystery Solved and just shared a little video.

It's just an idea but it is working really well for me. I hope you like it. Work in progress....

I'm glad you like it buddy. I never really thought of the fact that you don't need to reset it but your right.

Glad you like the mini illusion.
