I am getting very concerned that some don't understand me when I speak in the video 😃

I don't have an accent and am speaking English.

How bizarre

I'm not sure if this has been mentioned but I'm thinking the box actually has five outs - if it can be shown empty as well (I don't know if this is correct as I don't own it.) But the idea is to have a fifth prediction stuck to the bottom, so if you need it, just let them open the 'empty' box and then draw attention to the prediction underneath.


4 is enough and far better using the mechanics . Using your idea if stuck on the bottom you could also have one stuck on the underside of the lid giving 6 outs but the beauty is the fact you show empty then the prediction appears by magic inside 🙂

Tarik I don't think it's good idea to show the box empty and then make the prediction appear inside. This puts all the heat on it and turns it into a special production box. The purpose of the box should be that it's simply an innocent receptacle to hold items.

... figured it out: you also have to use the secret something on the DVD which is gimmicked as well. It has the same number of outs. One is English (which btw is perfectly understandable), one is Elvish, one is Old Valyrian, and the other(s) I haven't deciphered yet... ;-)

I agree totally Angelo I was just kind of saying to Bill08 if you are going to do 5 outs his way you could do 6 his way . I would never do that though and use it innocently as intended as you do . Best wishes Tarik 😊

If you buy 13 boxes, you can have 52 outs.

Angelo, Your English is fine...
your box/invention is freaking amazing.

My head hurts trying to figure out how I want to use it.
I will adding something to make it more sure-fire though. As it does get quirky a bit at times.

Congrats and thanks for all your hard work on this. Well done my friend.

Does anyone know how many limited edition GOLD boxes were made? I was lucky to get a GOLD one. It seems to be sold out everywhere.

I have now x act by Mike Kirby but my preference is where in the world ( Mark Mason based on x act with the blessing of Mike ) with all countries or cards shown with no repeats at all
( my method is based on their original idea ) Admittedly I have to deal but no r and s or st...y s.u.f and every card is dealt face up and no repeats at all . It can't get any cleaner imo Tarik 😊

Much prefer the black as you can touch it in with a sharpie and the gold looks like it is literally guilding the lily imho Tarik 😊

I believe both colors of boxes are just about sold out everywhere. On the FB group Titanas said it would be limited to 750 gold boxes and no more. Don't know if all have already been sold or if they held some back for later rounds.
But my guess is that more will be available, but again, just a guess.
Personally, I would love to see them available in more colors especially for the many folks who are buying multiple boxes to use in routines requiring perhaps 3 or 4 boxes.

I prefer GOLD because it looks like a gift box and not a magic box.

First, I have to say that I'm a huge fan of this prop. A utility item with so many possibilities that is only limited by your imagination. I absolutely love it! So much so that after receiving my initial order I immediately ordered 3 more for multiple box routines in a stage/parlour show. Angelo has done a fantastic service to the magic community and I believe his gift box will still be selling years from now. Very deceptive and well made. It will withstand more than enough visual scrutiny than would ever be needed. I mean, it's a small, solid, cardboard box and they can see at a glance there is nothing to find so no one is going to give it that much attention. I haven't been this excited about a prop in a very long time. It's great and comes with some amazing routines. If it was just a one-trick wonder and all you could do was the card trick shown in the demo then I wouldn't consider it a lot of bang for the buck, but that is only the tip of the iceberg. A year or two from now and that effect in conjunction with the box will probably be long forgotten, even though it is very strong. I would give this my highest recommendation.

Secondly, I wanted to give my thoughts about many of the boxes being described as having "issues". I think defective is too strong a term and misleading. It is true that a percentage of the boxes did have minor problems functioning perfectly when first received. Without getting too technical, an unforeseen issue involving physics affected some the gimmicks when they were in storage, transit to dealers, and transit to buyers. Angelo and Titanas immediately offered solutions to remedy the minor issue and even offered to ship buyers a new gimmick at no charge. I stress that the boxes themselves were never a problem, it only affected an additional gimmick used in conjunction with the box. It was soon discovered that simply using the box for a bit and breaking it in alleviated most of the issues, almost all were apparently working fine soon after being received. For those users still experiencing problems it was easily solved by simply adding an additional gimmick that most magicians already have on hand so for most it was a simple 10 second fix. But again, if you work it a while and play with it most issues worked themselves out. So the whole "defective" matter is really a non-issue so I wanted to debunk that rumor before it spreads even further. The ironic thing is it probably never would have become an "issue" in the first place if Angelo and Titanas hadn't rushed at breakneck speed to present solutions. Their amazing customer service actually may have given themselves some unnecessary bad publicity, but I give them much credit and commend them for trying to do the right thing and look after their customers.

Anyway, that is all in th past now and what we are left with is a fantastic prop that will no doubt serve many very well for a long time. Oh heck, I may as well throw in another cliche while I'm at it...I believe it's destined to become a classic. Thanks AC!!!


I absolutely agree on all points. I'm even considering buying more boxes as well. Fantastic and versatile prop. Truly a utility item. The hardest part is deciding how you want to use it! Smile
