'That is freaking brilliant Joel', Gary Jones, Magician and Creator.

'The voyager was one of the most incredible things I’ve seen Joel do. As soon as I heard it was for sale I bought it and I can’t wait to perform this in my show, very excited.' Kieron johnson, Magician and Creator.

The Voyager has been performed by Joel for over a decade.
It is a magic and mentalism cross over which packs one heck of a punch.

It can be performed as a killer close up routine or as a mind-blowing stage piece and it is INCREDIBLY EASY to perform.

Your audience watch as a participant experiences time travel and they bring back a coin from the past, the coin not only appears in your participant's hand but it is also engraved with the very year they are merely thinking of.

This is very commercial, it is easy to perform, fully scripted, self-working and an unforgettable professional routine.

There is no reset to worry about and the gimmick will last a lifetime.

What do I receive?:

A handcrafted set of The Voyager coins, a full HD video download and three full routines to start using The Voyager coin set immediately.

The Voyager is a reputation making routine. With bare minimal props and you will be ready to perform this memorable routine at the drop of a hat.

This pre-order will be a limited to the first 50 purchasers.
It will be ready to be shipped mid October LATEST.

The Voyager has been designed using British coins. If you are not performing in Britain I provide an alternative introduction to the routine to justify using British coins.

First come first served!

Best wishes,

Joel

Just sent for this as it's by Joel, so basically that means it's a ready made worker.

All we have to do is add our own personality & entertain & create wonder.

Will review it when I recieve it mid October & when I have worked it several times.

Am I correct in thinking this is basically Kenton Knepper's Time Machine with a bit of a different ending?

I thought the same! It was published in Wonder Words Volume two (The Real Work). It is a routine that is based of a routine by Larry Becker and this routine is by Kenton Knepper and Doc Hillford. When I watched the video it seems to me to be the same routine with the same ending(you tell them the time they are thinking of that is also on the coin). I have done Kentons routine a long time ago. I have bought a few routines in the past from Joel, but to me this feels like it is to much the same. Maybe Joel can shim in here and explain

All the best /lp loeld

This reminded me of Christopher Taylor's terrific "There and Back" effect where a participant selects a country to visit and goes on a mystical journey to that country. When the participant returns from his/her imaginary trip, he/she now has a coin from the country in his/her hand which the person can keep. The methodology of There and Back and The Voyager appears to be quite different. What is important in this type of effect is how clean and free the selection of the date chosen by the spectator is in The Voyager. Obviously the person cannot select any date so the selection process has to be appear to be extremely fair. The selection of the country in There and Back was extremely open and and free. Hopefully The Voyager is the same.

When I did Time Machine I forced the year. From what I recall Kenton had a way of allowing a freely named year, but that wouldn't stand up to too much scrutiny (trying to be vague so as not to give away methods here).

This seems like the year is clearly printed and could be examined by the volunteer? If so that's a worthy change in my mind.

Hi all, I don’t want to give anything away.

Time Machine is a handling of what stems from Korans Medallion.
The Voyager is a different handling, I can’t personally perform Time Machine but it has been a great inspiration for my work on the plot and The Voyager allows me to perform the effect close up and get the impact required.

If anybody has any direct questions that they’d like to ask then please send me a message directly as I’m more than happy to help and to let you know if this is for you or not.

This looks almost 90% Larry Becker... the minor difference being he limited the year choice to a particular century. Then great audience management and deft use of the props, that the person will agree the coin was engraved with the year chosen.

If in this routine there is a point the person must write down their year at any point, I'd say it was 98% Becker. If there was a point to limit it to a certain time span (to align with the coin's era) it is 99.9%.

I do the Becker routine quite often - and I really can't see the differences here from the video.

Another thing that must be considered is that this uses British coins only. I have tried to emphasise this. If you are not of a British performer I suggest an introduction for the presentation, however, you must really consider this.

Best wishes,

Joel.

The beauty of The voyager is that the coin transforms in their hand, from a modern coin to an old coin.
This means the routine does not have to happen only on A stage, it can happen up close with groups.

I provide a variety of methods including techniques that have never been applied to the Koran Concept, the routine is modular.

Hope this helps.

Joel.

To clear up things from my end - I had a little chat with Joel and I'm sure this is different enough from the routine I'm familiar with to warrant a separate release. It sounds like a wonderfully emotionally engaging routine.

I think the reactions speak for themselves. This was no staged, sansminds, effort.

Hope Joel decides to put out an American version. Joel definitely puts out true workers.

I have bought this but obviously not received it yet.

However, I am familiar with TIME MACHINE & Joel has explained the method & subtle differences with The Voyager to me.

In my humble opinion( & I love the work of all of the other mentalists mentioned in this post), I think that The Voyager is my prefered take on this.

It IS different, MORE convincing & much stronger for me.

The subtleties do a lot to elevate the effect.

Really like this & can't wait to receive the actual coins in the post.

I am not going to tip the work on this as it is unfair to Joel.

To me though as usual it will be worth a lot more than the price he is charging as it is super practical, direct & will create a massive impact with very little effort apart from presentation.

Also, I have paid for this so get nothing for singing it's praises apart from the fact that more performers will be slaying the public with Joels work

Joel would be the 1st to say that he stands on the shoulders of giants.

What he also does is elevate standard plots & make them VERY REAL WORLD masterpieces.

Well done Mr Dickinson on another great release.
