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

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.

Great Effect Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 31st, 2008
DO NOT pass this up! I have been performing for over 20 years, and without a doubt this is one of the best instructional videos on the Magic Square I have seen. Now, I don't know that Mr. Jermay gets credit for creating the effect, however, he does get credit for presenting it in an easy to learn manner. Minimal amount of work for a strong effect that is a true reputation maker. It is important to note that you don't need to me a math teacher to perform the Magic Square. In addition, this is also one of the rare cases where the effect is under priced. I would have paid triple the asking price. Once again, great job Penguin Magic!

Easy trick to learn Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 2nd, 2008
It is not necessary that you poke yourself with a pin so don't think this will be a painful trick. You can pretty much do anything. The idea is to make the participant think that you need some sort of help (pin sticking) in order for you to perform the trick.

The video is around 25 minutes. Quality is good. Not a lot of fluff. Seems to cover all of the bases.

It does mention a template on the site for those that purchase the instant download. I cannot find the template. It is either hidden or not there. Regardless, the template is not necessary. You can draw your own grid if you want.

Skill required... you must have passed 1st grade math.
Involves some memory. Not too bad.

Easy to do with no gimmicks required. You just need a pen and paper. Or, if you are in a class, do it on a chalk board. Up to you.

Enjoy.

you need good memory Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 2nd, 2008
i expected a simple formula that i could start performing one second after i wached the download. he teaches you a way to do it where you don't have to memorize it but then it is not impromptu and not examinable. i bought this yesterday and i have memorized one forth of what i need to memorize. luke is an amazing teacher though, you get a 25-minute download for a very simple concept.

soooo easy Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 6th, 2008
This trick is mad easy. I seriously memorized it in like 9 seconds flat. And you can come up with some serious cool patter so this isn't a lame boring trick. I like his options he gives you with it too instead of the needle, i think that's personally a little weak, but overall quick, easy and can be a real fooler. PLUS THEY are giving it away for a good cause, you best be voting for AUSTIN!!!
