When I got this I just chuckled "haw haw haw this one is going to KILL"
executed gimmick which creates a perfect effect. I use this EVERY DAY.
It even fools me,
just playing around with it!
Perfectly made, worth the $$

This is hilariously simple trick; I watched it once figured it out, but the best tricks are the
simple ones. I just need to think of a clever way to make my own "mystery box" and I will be good to
go. I rated this trick a 5 merely because I know how how good the reactions will be.
I substituted the Kennedy box for Tommy Wonder's "Card to Ring Box", and it's perfection. I finish
my act with Ambitious Card to Kennedy box. Pull Tommy's routine up on Youtube if you haven't seen
it...and watch the audience reaction.
I LOVE the kennedy Mystery Box! Like all other Kennedy products the craftsmanship and the detail is
PERFECT! It's one of those "feel good" gimmicks! I just love starting a routine that will end with
this because I am thinking in my head "wow! these spectators have NO idea what's coming!" ADD TO
I think that the reviews that bring this down a bit, and blow it off as "30 seconds of magic" are
missing the point and value.
This box turned Ambitious Card into a table hopping closer for
me. You should not be using this as a "one-off" sort of effect...but a perfect and impossible topper
to a set.
The same notion exists in Sankey's Paper-Clipped, but here it is presented a
little more ornately. To greet a table, lay this box down "for later", go into a set, and cap the
set via something visible and interesting that you haven't been near the ENTIRE time has gathered me
quite the wallet full of tips in my time on a restaurant floor.
It's Kennedy, so it's
unfortunately pricey, but the mileage I've gotten out of this has more than taken care of the return
of investment. Highly recommend for the workers out there...when you can get it, lol. :)
This is another great trick put out there by John Kennedy. The materials you get are made of high
quality materials so this will last you a long time. In addition to this great signed card to
impossible location trick, you also learn a secret move that you will use for other tricks. If you
have some extra cash and are looking for a great new trick, pick this up and you'll have a lot of
fun with it.
This is a great trick, I got the best reactions with this because is so impossible. I think this is
the best John Kennedy trick.
Alright this is a trick that you can kill your spectators with, everything is about timing with this
effect and presentation. Its expensive sure, why not get something else like a dvd or a card to
wallet... You could but this is an effect you must put time and effort into, you don't just pick
this up and get the best reactions with it. You have to practice timing and presentation. Don't
let that scare you off because it really isn't that hard to do or present as long as you practiced
and know what you're doing. I use this as my finisher for ACR, ACR is an effect that uses the same
idea of mystery box and that is presentation and timing. Really if you actually put some effort
into this you cant go wrong, you will use this thing for ever. This is an outstanding effect I give
If you didn't figure it out by watching the video, then by all means buy it. But for 30 seconds of
magic its just a bit pricey for me, I would suggest picking up a copy of Front Row Sankey and
checking out full lotus which in my opinion is a much better version.
Great, great trick. And, contrary to other reviews here, this CAN be done without the sleight of
hand required for Sankey's "Paperclipped." Very easy to do.
