The performer hands out a book of matches for close examination. A penny is then borrowed and the date on the coin is noted. Commenting that, "You can create a little static electricity between almost any two things," the magician rubs the coin on his sleeve, places the penny on the matchbook and tips the book on its side.

Unfortunately, the penny slides off. "Let's try that one more time," says the performer as he again rubs the coin on the matchbook. This time, when the book is tipped, not only does the penny stick, the coin MELTS INTO THE FIBERS OF THE MATCHBOOK!!! The book of matches is immediately handed out for examination and the date is verified! This easy-to-do, very visual, heart-stopping effect comes complete with three different handlings and three matchbooks.

This was very disappointing, especially from the genius mind of Jay Sankey. The idea is really cool, but the translation of the idea into what you get here just doesn't fly. The matchbook coin illustrations don't look all that real. For something like this where the effect is a feat of impossibility that is a really important fact. I wanted to like this but just couldn't do it. This went into my drawer of magical mistakes.

It's OK Report this review

This seems like a good trick but people aren't usually impressed with this one. I find that the revelation of the penny stuck to the match packet really disappointing. Don't buy this expecting to freak people out. Might work on little kids but not adults.

Metamorph disspointing Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 1st, 2004
I have many of Jay's tricks, and really love his stuff. And after I saw the demo for this trick, Jay's performance really sells it (of course). BUT, this trick was very disappointing when I began performing it. The handling can be awkward and revealing, and the penny on the matchbook is not well made. - This is disappointing since most of Jay's gimmicks are primo stuff. The penny doesn't look real at all, and doesn't seem to fool anyone - at least not in the conditions I've performed it in. You would need really low light to make it work I think.
It's a good concept, but considering the problems mentioned above, it's definitely not worth the money.

Looks Horribly fake Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 21st, 2004
I'm sorry, but I don't know what these other reviews see out of this trick. I personally think the gimmik looks horribly fake. There's one thing about this trick that I think nobody can argue aginst me about though. The price too high by about 7 or 8 bucks. One other thing I would like to mention. The discussion boards have a poll in them and 66% or something like that say that they think this trick stinks.
