The performer has a number named at random. He/she then quickly writes out 16 numbers within a grid. Upon examination all combinations within the grid are seen to have totaled the named number.

Check out the demo video. This is a great trick to know for a wide variety of situations.

It's OK Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 10th, 2010
This is an alright trick but it isn't really magic. It's math. It's actually pretty easy to do but most people will just think, "ok, so he's good at math". This is a pretty good trick for me being a math teacher, so my students think it's great but again, it's attributed to being good at math, not magic. Jermay has some really good magic stuff out there and unfortunately, although I like this one, it isn't his best.

I can't in good conscience recommend this. I do think The Magic Square is a decent routine, but I have problems with this particular product. As Jermay points out at the very end during the credits, this is a very old effect, and he goes on to cite others who have done some exceptional additional work with this effect. Unfortunately, Jermay isn't one of them. This is just a verbatim presentation of the oldest, most basic presentation.

Well, his presentation does introduce a needle-jabbing element, but quite frankly, this is just completely ridiculous. It has no place in this type of routine, and if you make a habit of handing a needle to a spectator and asking to be jabbed with it, you're inviting trouble. Sorry, but this is just foolish and unnecessary.

Jermay recommends that the performer memorize the template, but he makes no secret of the fact that he has not; he also freely admits that he has no interest nor aptitude at math. This suggests to me that this is not an effect he has ever performed regularly, and it merely represented a convenient effect to add to his product line.

If someone is truly interested in this effect, I would take advantage of the recommendations cited by Jermay in the credits. Those writers truly embraced this effect and brought something new to it. What Jermay offers here is strictly a mercenary effort.

Nothing New But Great Trick Report this review

If you're looking to start doing a magic square routine, this is it! Not sure you're going to find much use out of the needle bit or his routine, but the workings are helpful and it's a solid trick. I was very surprised that Luke doesn't remember the 12 sets of numbers needed to complete this... really!? Here is a helpful Mnemonic that will help you remember the numbers within 3-4 minutes. Should have been on the DVD...

"A couple of skinny models (11) ate (8) two (2) meals. One (1) of them finished at midnight (12) and the other, at (7). Fourty (4) six (6) minutes later, they had to go to work at their nine (9) to five (5) jobs. After a ten (10) hour day, they went home and slept for three (3) hours."

I liked this a lot. I kind of had to work with the graphics provided to make them my own. I also screwed up the math on my part the first time I did this (Luke warns you about this in the video). It still impresses even though I did it wrong. The pain element really freaks people out.

Not really magical Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 5th, 2010
This is a decent trick, and doesn't require much skill, and will probably impress people. However, it will make you look more like a math genius rather than a magician. I do like the concept, but not really that magical in my mind. Kind of expensive for the type of trick you get in a download, as there are many other better downloads out there for the same price or cheaper.

This, for the record, is a classic trick in mentalism, NOT Luke Jermay's trick.

That being said, Luke Jermay is MORE than qualified to teach this. He goes into TONS of detail and will teach even the most experienced performer SOMETHING.

I really liked this download and, even though I had known the magic square for years, this actually got me wanting to go out and do it.

REALY good download!!! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 4th, 2010
Some people ask me if there are any downloads that are AMAZINGLY good. I usually point them towards this one. Not only is this a perfect trick, but it also packs flat and plays HUGE. You can perform this in any setting and get the handling down in under an hour. It's a little difficult but if you follow Luke's precise on screen aids, you can do it too and learn this. Plus, by looking at what the square really is, you can learn different ways to get the idea down. I suggest this to anyone wanting to go into a stand up or mentalism routine.

cool. Report this review

This is amazing how it works, but does take some math skills, you must be able to add, I find this works good for college students. Fund to do, and you can have it set up and ready to go.

Really simple Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
This effect is really simple, but it can play huge. You'll master it fast, and with the right patter, you'll freak people out! I recommend this if you're interested in simple mentalism. It packs small and it plays big. Add To Cart!

Great Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
I have only used this effect a few times, but one time I decided to get school early to show my math teacher this effect, I did not present as a magic trick, rather proving I am good at math, at the end of the effect he was blown away at how fast I did everything and he said he was very impressed. I thought that was awesome I never told him it was a magic trick and still brings it up sometimes. Get this effect just to see what your teacher says.
Teaching and everything is gone over very well.
Thank you Mr. Jermay for giving me such a nice effect and letting me impress my teacher.
