"The next big thing is HERE!" - Eric Jones

The World's leading magicians, creators and historians have heralded David Penn's Mystery Solved as "The Holy Grail".
In any lighting conditions, close-up, walk around, parlour or stage you will be able to perform the cleanest and clearest switch ever!!!!!

  • A killer ending for card to impossible location
  • The perfect solution to the dream card plot
  • The most direct and fair Confabulation routine you have ever seen.
Mystery Solved has been perfectly engineered and custom made from the ground up, to provide you with a method that you will enjoy using again and again and yet your spectators will never see a thing!

As Marc Oberon Said - "When I saw Mystery Solved I couldn't believe a switch was occurring".

Utilise Mystery Solved as your finale, in the cleanest and clearest card to box ever, or to reveal a prediction.

A signed card vanishes from the deck only to be discovered in the clear box that has been isolated under a wine glass the entire time!

In a mentalism routine your audience can see you place the prediction inside an empty box. After asking for random information from your audience members, the prediction can be tipped out at fingertips, before being read out loud by a spectator.
  • The card is tipped out at fingertips making the retention of vision incredibly strong and deceptive.
  • The box is only half the size of a deck of cards!
  • The box is instantly empty and clear!
  • The contents can be changed/customized in three minutes!
  • You can place objects in the box and clearly tip them out!
As well as the thinking behind Mystery Solved, the accompanying DVD which was shot on location within London's Shard, provides a wealth of information including David's card routine guest star - Peter Turner describes devious ways to use Mystery Solved in mentalism routines.

To expensive and you have to "construct" the gimmick Report this review

I made a box like this when I was in high school shop class. Cost me about 2 bucks.
Love David Penn but this is sub par for him.
Box is to huge to put in pocket
Double stick tape? Really?!
I prefer another not so well advertised clear box that is smaller and fully examinable not that most people give a hoot about the box.
Again love David Penn and he is quite clever but this is an over priced disappointment.

I've performed some form of the mystery card/signed card to impossible location and predictions for decades. I've used envelopes, wallets, paper clips, wooden boxes, mint boxes, jewelry boxes and candy boxes.

Thanks to David Penn's Mystery Solved, my search is now over!

The construction of the box is flawless and it's secret workings is diabolical. It's so well made that it looks exactly what it is: a clear, little box that holds an isolated playing card, prediction, or bill/bank note.

It's perfect for all venues. From close-up to stage, Mystery Solved works. It's small enough to be carried in your pocket, so it's perfect for restaurant and walk around gigs.

You can have the box on the table or even have a member of the audience hold the box.
The box is completely customizable and items can be changed out within minutes.

Of course it's perfect for card magic and you can use ANY brand of cards, with ANY back design. But it is not limited to card magic.

The applications for mentalism is unlimited. From routines with paper money to predictions and confabulation routines, Mystery Solved elevates the magic. The legendary Peter Turner is featured on the DVD discussing applications for mentalism.

The DVD is beautifully filmed, with crystal clear instruction so that anyone form full time Pro's to Hobbyists can perform their favorite style of magic with it.

Mystery Solved isn't just the "latest/newest" flavor of the month trick. David Penn's Mystery Solved is a bona fide game changer!

Mystery Solved - Top Rated Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 16th, 2014
I used Mystery Solved in performance for the first time on Saturday night, inspired by David and Peter Turner to use it for a Dream Vacation prediction, as the closer to a 2-hour act, and it brought the house down. With a handling revealed by David in an extra video he released, it was flawless and absolutely incomprehensible to the volunteer and an audience of more than 60 who were watching. Electrifying result, and my first standing "O"... very happy customer.

It's every bit as good as it looks and better. David released an alternate handling filmed by another magician that was absolutely perfect for me. I had a volunteer imagine a dream vacation, picking a place (Egypt), an amount of money she took with her ($3,000), and a celebrity she'd seen there in a hotel lobby (Omar Sharif), while I jotted down the details on a small pad in a notebook. Then she came to the stage as I tore out the notebook page and handed it to her asking her to confirm the details. Then I directed everyone's attention to a podium at the other side of the stage where there was an upside-down wine glass with the small clear plastic box on top of it (Peter Turner's suggestion) that had been in plain view for over an hour, and a folded note inside the box with the words "I had a Dream..." written on the outside. I had the volunteer look closely at the box, then cup her hands, I lifted the box with two fingers, held it over her hands, removed the lid with two fingers of the other hand, and spilled the note out into her hands. SHE opened the note to find it said, "I had a dream that I went on vacation in Egypt, that I took $3,000 with me, and I met Omar Sharif while I was there." She was totally stunned, along with everyone else, including my wife!

Perfect Utility Gimmick! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 29th, 2015
As always, David Penn delivers! I've used several switching boxes and this is by far the most versatile, easy to use and deceptive. David does a nice job with the instructional DVD and the interview with Peter Turner got my mind racing! The potential alone for billet work and predictions makes this a must have. My ONLY criticism is that the "extra inserts" David provides so that you can customize the object in the box could be better quality and is prone to scratches. The material works just fine, but is a bit fragile. The good news is there's a superior material available at better craft stores in the US. I've upgraded my box for $3 and now it is incredible!
