Add up coins

Postby Tom McDonagh » November 12th, 2016, 1:04 pm

I was reading in either a book or an ebook a few days ago and read an effect where you count a number of coins in a square and add one at a time and the total doesn't change. Corners. Will anyone steer me to the effect please? I don't know where I read it. CRS.
Thanks in advance,
Tom

There are several versions in print and on video.

Jim Steinmeyer has a version in one of the Conjuring articles - that will be in the big book. Mike Weber has a version in Lifesavers.

My preferred version (for method and presentation) is Giovanni Livera's DVD The Pennies.

It's in one of the Bamboozlers books too.
