We had a good idea in the General Magic forum posted about making a forum about Parlor Magic.

Someone brought up the point that there isn't enough traffic in the Stage Forum to warrant having another forum about parlor stuff.

So...

...let's get a good parlor thread going!!!

What kind of stuff do you guys use for your parlor shows?? Details about length of the shows?? Other stuff you'd like to add??

Let's have some fun!!!

Just did a 1/2 hour show recently and I made a homemade rattle box and ring box. So I did the old ring flight deal. Put the ring in the rattle box and the ring jumps to the other box. It got killer reactions!

So...If you have a Parlor show in the works I'd strongly recommend looking up Lippincott box or Quarter-go box. You can get a lot of milage out of these.

Not really but because I never actually bought a Lippincott box the method I came up with was a bit different. It has some advantages and some disadvantages to the classic design.

I was hoping that this thread would have gotten a bit more traffic.

Oh well. :lol:

I guess that is why we don't have a dedicated parlour section.
