Harapan Ong – Spellcheck

Spellcheck by Harapan Ong

What if I told you that there was an amazing card trick hidden in plain sight … printed on the box of your favourite deck of cards? Henry Christ’s “Tally-Ho!” is a unique and fun spelling trick like no other. By spelling the words found on a Tally-Ho card box in an order determined by the spectator, you are able to produce the four Nines – matching the “No. 9” printed on the box.

In this ebook, I will be teaching Roy Walton’s variation of “Tally-Ho!” (permission granted by Roy Walton), along with my presentation for the trick. I will then present to you methods to perform this simple and self-working spelling trick with ten popular and common brands of decks out there.

I will also be sharing the history of the plot and my thoughts on the Tally-Ho Plot, including how to make it play well for an audience. You’ll be producing four Aces and Royal Flushes in no time, all without any sleight-of-hand. All you need is a deck of cards and the card box it already comes in.

Thank you for your support. If you have any issues with the tricks, please drop me a message on my Instagram page @harapanong, where you can find more of my magic.

R.I.P. Roy Walton, thank you for giving permission to teach your trick. Your generosity and kindness will be missed.

Joshua Grist – Open Up

The mentalist asks if they can borrow any random spectator’s iPhone (almost any phone can be used, it does not have to be an iPhone) and successfully unlocks it in a matter of seconds.

Naturally, there are many PIN code and phone code divinations on sale within the mentalism world, but this is unique in that there is no fishing, nothing said by the spectator, no hot-reading, and it’s extremely simple. The spectator says absolutely nothing throughout this process, and if you chose to perform this without patter it would take around 5 seconds.

Victory Carton Illusions

Few people consider paper, cardboard and carton high-tech products, but they are. Go visit any paper factory and you will find out that some of the largest and most complex manufacturing machines in operation today are paper machines.

Since my father worked for many years for a paper manufacturer, I have learned to respect paper from a very early age. This is part of the reason why I am so excited about this e-book. It describes 12 stage illusions which you can build entirely from carton. Carton is inexpensive, easy to work with, light weight, pretty durable and packs flat. These are characteristics great for the beginner as well as the advanced performer. Who wants to carry around heavy equipment? Who wants to travel with a trailer rather than fit everything in a car? With very little money you can build illusions that would normally run into the hundreds or even thousands of dollars.

It includes drawings and instructions for such illusions as SAWING THRU GIRL – SWORD BOX – LEVITATION – SUBSTITUTION – DOLL HOUSE – HEADS OFF – SPIRIT CABINET – GIRL PRODUCTION- RABBIT PRODUCTION – BOY VANISH – COSTUME ILLUSION.

Here is a bit of information you will thank me for. The strength of cardboard is rated by the so called ‘edge crush test’ or short ECT. Typical boxes are ECT 32. Make sure to build your illusions from cardboard rated ECT 44 or better. This makes all the difference. And there is no reason to stop at cardboard. I encourage you to experiment with other inexpensive materials such as various kinds of foam boards or corrugated plastic a.s.o.

And once you have replicated some of U. F. Grant’s designs and incorporated his advice, you can let your imagination run wild and take pretty much any illusion or illusion plan and rework it to use cardboard.

DesTROYers (Troy Hooser) (z-lib.org)

“Destroyers is filled with killer magic that is both audience tested and practical. Learning Troy’s material is well worth your time and investment”
– Bob Kohler

An immediate sensation when it debuted ten years ago, Destroyers remains relevant, innovative and “highly recommended” (Michael Close, MAGIC Magazine). Acclaimed author Joshua Jay takes you on a whirlwind tour of over forty routines and sleights, each one explained with thoughtful prose and distinctive illustrations. You will learn over a dozen coin routines that require no table, how to levitate a small mask, how to produce a bottle from nowhere, and how to produce a padlock from two rubber bands. This updated and expanded edition of Destroyers features over seven routines not originally included, as well as additional commentary and dozens of new illustrations.

The name Troy Hooser has always been associated with the underground magic scene. For more than twenty-five years, Mr. Hooser has quietly developed a repertoire of material that amazes laymen. Hooser’s material has also captured the imaginations of the magic industry’s thought leaders-Troy Hooser is, perhaps, your favorite magician’s favorite magician. In his first collection, he tips a lifetime of secrets and the theory behind them. These tricks wreak havoc on the logic of spectators. These tricks are Destroyers.

“Highly recommended for the serious student…Top notch and well thought out…Destroyers is the reason that the flipper coin has become so popular.”
– Dr. Michael Rubenstein, Coin Magic Seminar

“Destroyers has been instrumental in my own magical development. Any serious student of magic would benefit from careful study of Troy’s entire body of work.”
Eric JonesAudio and An Extension of Me

Pages: 189 – Hardcover – Black and White Illustrations
