Re: Anyone Get Magic Stuff for a Holiday Gift?

My gift is Woody Aragon's "A Book in English". Glad to have it, after seeing him win the International Magic Convention contest in London last November.

Re: Name of This Effect?

In addition, Aldo Colombini had his own version with a regular deck, called "Car-Dice Miracle". This version was described by Lewis Ganson in Magigram, Vol. 11. There the trick was credited to Pavel, who also used 36 duplicate cards. No mention of Claude Rix though. Regards Peter Vanspauwen

It was a wonderful set, existing of two strong (kind of cardboard) tubes, a beer and a milk bottle, and the well known gimmick. This gimmick was so well made that one could slowl...
