Re: On The Slant

Brad,

I didn’t know there was a “bad reason” to learn something of interest; something that would certainly not harm anyone.

Geez ... what a tough crowd.

Re: On The Slant

Kent, Exactly what you said, "... or as a comeback to some layman who insists on showing you a standard version." That is my primary motivation to locate and re-visit this effect. I do subscribe to Genii and last night, I searched the archives to no avail. I am aware of Jon's book re: 21 C...

On The Slant

In a previous issue of Genii (within the past 10 years), in the column, On The Slant, Jon explained (verbally) a version of the 21 Card Trick. I recall it was a version that non-magicians who were familiar with the 21 Card Trick, would be fooled by. Does anyone recall what issue it was in? Thank you...

Re: Tenyo Elite Matchsticks situation

Shading is not the issue. The issue is an upside down number and a number incorrectly positioned. IMO, not worth the price, but it is a very good trick.

Re: Tenyo Elite Matchsticks situation

My set had a defect with one of the dark-colored sticks. The Tenyo Elite team responded to my emails and are sending a replacement set to me. Clearly a Quality Control issue, but not something that would leave a bad taste in my heart.

Moving soon and my box of Genii mags is heavier than most of my other boxes. That's not the primary reason I am asking, but if it is an option to overseas customers, why not offer it to USA customers?
