"When Kevin first sent me the video to show me the effect, it really fooled me. So I watched it again, and it fooled me...again."- David Forrest

Without any suspicious moves at all, you can immediately cause a signed card to appear in the card case. Your spectator will watch in disbelief as with empty hands you fairly pick up the box (nothing palmed), show the box on both sides (nothing to see), genuinely un-tuck the flap (the box is really closed – always has been) then slowly and fairly remove the signed card from inside of it. YES! THEY ACTUALLY SEE THE CARD COME FROM INSIDE THE BOX!

In late 2011, Dave Forrest received a link in his inbox pointing at a short video of a ‘card t box’ concept. The sender was Kevin Schaller and the video fooled Dave badly. Dave took Kevin’s initial concept and made additions to the gimmick making it more practical for the real world and, through constant use, began to unearth the true depth of Kevin’s discovery. XBOX was born.

Yes, you can very easily have any card arrive in the card box but this is not just a simple ‘card to box’ routine. It is a utility gimmick – a system – that will also allow you to seamlessly switch cards in the box for cards in the deck. So, you can show a card inside the box at the beginning of the effect then secretly switch that card for another during the routine! Imagine the possibilities!

The DVD will teach you THREE knockout routines created by Dave Forrest:

AMBITIOUS CARD BOX
A stunning finale for your Ambitious Card routine where the signed card rises all the way up through the deck and ends up inside the card case.

MYSTERY BOX
A mystery card, locked in the card box before you start the routine turns out to be the spectators signed selection!

XBOX TRANSPO
An impossible transposition between your ‘lucky card’, locked in the card box, and signed selection! It’s so fast and impossible – they won’t know what hit them!

XBOX FTW Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 1st, 2012
I admit I was a bit skeptical at purchasing this illusion. I've bought things from Penguin before that have claimed to be super easy only to find that they are not.. at least not for me. This however is in fact easy. Like someone else commented, "It does require you to customize a box..." you'll need two that match. For those who are not already into cards this might be the only flaw but easily fixed with a quick trip to Wal-Mart.

Absolutely killer Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 2nd, 2012
For the price and ease of use, this effect is hard to beat. Yes, it basically does one type of effect, but the effect plays so big it's hard to say anything against this. You will have to create your own gimmick supplying two decks of cards (or actually just the two boxes), but then you will have an incredible miracle in your hands.

The handling on this is great, and you can indeed have the spectator pull their signed card from the box (with a little help from you). No, they can't examine the box, and you can't really use it to hold the deck or much else without a lot of angle control and gentle handling, but those are minor complaints. The teaching on the DVD is easy to follow and you'll have the gimmick constructed in about 20 minutes.

Once you begin with this, you'll find a number of uses for this. Closing an ambitious card routine is a natural choice, but just about anything using a single-card reveal could be a possibility. And this is one of those that could actually fool you while performing it...even though you know the secret. It looks amazingly real.

Too many limitations Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 26th, 2012
This is a nice concept, gimmick works, fools people.

Now: The box can't be examined, the problem is, the people want to see the box. The box is so gimmicked!!!!! I don't like these tricks, where everything is gimmicked so much that nothing can be examined, so not for me, not for a worker, to much pocket space for one effect!

...Extremely Clever! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 16th, 2012
I'll have to give this yet another 5 star rating!...This is a very creative and well thought out project. It is somewhat similar to another trick on the market but full credit is given for this on the DVD. As far as I'm concerned, this is much better. To me, the most amazing feature of this method is that there isn't any faking or fumbling around when drawing the card from the box. This is excellent!....a ton of possibilities with this little jewel!!!

Best Card To Box Ever Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 6th, 2013
I don't care what anyone says,this is the best card to box ever made. It is the easiest and most visual card to box routine you could perform in a real world situation. It takes about 5 minutes to get used to the gimmick. After that, it is pretty much up to your imagination. The dvd is very well made and the instructions were very, very easy to follow. I would say this is my favorite purchase of 2013 so far. The only downside is that I have found trouble with using it just as a regular card box. Sometimes the gimmick can get in the way when putting the deck back in the box; But other than that, it is golden, a real worker.

Excellent! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 25th, 2012
What a creative effect this is! It is just great! This is a must have for anyone who might want to do card tricks. It does require you to customize a box, so you won't be able to do it with a borrowed box, but your customized box is now a very clever utility device. All thumbs up on this one!
