The best number trick of all time.

This effect combines a little bit of mind reading and lot of impressive math wizardry. The Automatic Magic Square makes you look like a genius. Thankfully, the method only requires very basic elementary math skills.

They think of a number and immediately you start writing numbers down. It looks like their thoughts are guiding your pen to write numbers down. After you write many of the numbers down you ask for their number and in seconds you complete the magic square. You mention that while you did not write down their thought of number, something interesting has happened. You noticed that all of the numbers in each row equals their thought of number. Same goes for each column and the diagonal lines too. Not only that but you can even add the four corners and they add up to the thought of number. Whether it is mind reading, magic or math, the Automatic Magic Square is an impressive feat no matter how you add it up.

Yes, I have seen magic square reactions day, after day, after day like clockwork “No way”... “No WAY”... “NOO WAAAY!” “NO %#&@ WAY!!!” It is one of those rare things a magician can do where the build up is perfectly orchestrated to get those responses.

The teaching here is complete and functional. It is a bit dry and it goes into the mathematical mechanics of how this works. It isn’t actually necessary, and it will certainly lose some people, but it will also inspire some highly analytical people to give this a try. Once you do a magic square, you will love it!

The only hesitation I have on this is... there is nothing new here. But that’s OK, the magic square in its basic form is as old as dirt... but way more fun!

Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 18th, 2019
I've been doing magic for a very long time, I've never done anything related to Magic Square. This is all new to me but I like it. The teaching is done very well by Tori, Math was always a tough subject for me. This seemed simple because of the excellent explanation. I will use this, I have an idea for a patter that should make it funny. (I hope anyway) I'll try it on my wife. If I can make her laugh I can make almost anybody laugh. This is cool and it adds a new dimension to my routine. It's worth the money, especially for someone that has never done this type of thing.

A great trick and a great teacher Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 18th, 2019
I have loved the Magic Square for a long time. This is the best version I have ever seen. One of the main reasons is the skill of the teacher.
I don't know if Ms. Noquez is a professor, but I would bet that she is, or at least has teaching experience. It shows in a number of ways. First, she is very comfortable using the chalk board and that makes this explanation much more lucid. Second, she knows how to explain difficult concepts. Anyone who watches this will have no trouble understanding and doing the square. Third, she goes into not just how to do the square, but also why it works. You may not care about this, but it will help in your understanding.
Overall this is a bargain at the price. Clear instruction for a great trick does not come along that often. This is one of those pieces and you can perform it whenever you choose. Trust me when I say that doing this for a math geek will kill and you give them a souvenir to take home and remember. Highly recommended.

Note: If this is your first experience with the Magic Square, pay no mind. You bought a great download. This review isn’t for you.

Ok so I don’t know what I was expecting. I got this because frankly, it sounded like there was some nice approaches involved- and there are. I don’t do a “formal” MS, I just do it impromptu in casual settings, if at all. I trusted/misread/read what I wanted to read when it said “no memory work” because I’m lazy and don’t remember all the prewritten squares all the time, so I prepare accordingly. Figured I’d check this out.

That said- while I think Tori’s teaching is upbeat and informative, I feel like maybe you guys should make a note in the description for those of us who bought MS when Jermay taught it on a video here years ago. It’s literally the same thing. I’m absolutely not blaming Penguin for my stupidity, I just feel like maybe those like me looking for new methodology for things could feel burned after getting this. Personally I like to have multiple methods for effects to disseminate the best one; this, while well taught, is more or less a rehash of what’s come before. And again- that’s not on Tori, she knows her stuff. But a slight caveat emptor might not hurt either. At the end of the day, $5 isn’t killing me to lose, but I’d have preferred to have spent it on something else had I known about the redundancy this would have caused in my library.

Rating for Tori: 5
Rating for my own stupidity: -16

Maths was never my best subject , but this is ingenious, it is super easy to learn one run through and it would be hard to miss.
If there is one number square to be learned it must be this.
Oh and did I say it is easy easy easy

Simpler Than I Expected - That's a Good Thing Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 21st, 2019
Let me start with a disclaimer. This is my first time learning the magic square. So I will not be able to compare it to others in the same category. Also, I may tend to be more impressed with it than the more experience magic square people out there as this is a totally new trick to me. That said, on with my review.

I was always curious about the magic square, but I never got around to learning it. Now that I have, I'm glad I did. It is a much simpler trick to perform than I expected. Simple is good. It means I'm more likely to perform it. This trick is fail proof as long as you can memorize a few numbers (or you do a little prep like Tori shows... but to me the memorization seems to be the more organic method). If you're interested in the magic square, this version by Tori Noquez is a no-brainer. Get it. She goes through and teaches how it works. I know that some reviewers have said they were really needing to hear the explanation... but I for one appreciated it. I was still a little confused at the end (it's ok... my fault. I'm dumb when it comes to math) and I do wish that she went into more specifics about HOW she came up with all the numbers used (is it a pattern? What?), so that I could make up my own magic square or even do a totally original one on the fly. But still, good stuff. Maybe it's not that easy to come up with my own version... maybe this requires the work of a skilled mathmatician to make up a new one, so I won't ding her on that. Good job teaching this, Tori.

My proble with this trick actually has nothing to do with Tori's teaching, but with the trick itself. To me, this is a math trick, not a magic trick. It doesn't fit exactly in my own idea of what magic is. That's just my own personal opinion. Of course, I will not lower my review score because of this... that wouldn't be fair. But just my two cents: this is an incredible trick. Just not "magical". Yes, this can certainly be put into an act. But I think it more showcases one's intelligence than his or her magical abilities or sleight of hand. Does that make sense? Of course, again, it still can be used. I can easily see Derren Brown use this... his act approaches magic from a different angle than, say, Dynamo. This trick is great for mentalists who are demonstrating their intellectual mastery over the human brain. But someone like David Copperfield who does more of an illusionist, it would be a cool trick but not really feel as fitting in his act.

Ok I'm rambling. Sorry.

Let's wrap this up:

- Price? It's worth it. Now that it's on sale, the pricing is perfect. At full price, it's a little on the high side, but still a satisfactory purchase.
- Easy to learn? Yes, it's very easy to learn.
- Will I perform this? Yes, definitely. It'll make me look like a genius. (Remember, magic is all about illusion! Haha!)
- How magical is this trick? My personal opinion: this trick is not magical but impressive. This can be used to impress on someone that you're very smart and, if you're a mentalist that approaches your craft from a "realistic" approach (claiming to use body language, NLP, psychology, etc a la Derrik Brown, this trick will fit right into your repertoire to convince people of your intellectual prowess)

I give this trick 3.5 stars. I reserve five for mind-blowing "magical" tricks... which means that most of the tricks I review are going to be on a scale of 1 to 4 stars. Good job, Tori!


(By the way, I always try to be honest and straightforward in my reviews, while being respectful to the magician. If you appreciate my reviews, can you please click the "Yes" button below beside the question, "Did this review help you?" It's not like I actually benefit in any way by your clicking it... but it would be nice to see if my reviews are helpful or not. I hope they are. If you ever have suggestions or comments or questions about my reviews, please feel free to leave me a constructive comment. I'm just trying to be helpful. I love the Penguin community and hope that I can someday contribute my own product. :-) Thanks for reading and for any (hopefully positive, but either way, at least kind) feedback!)

Good Magic Square Effect Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 18th, 2019
This is a simple to do foolproof method for a magic square.
If you've never performed the magic square, this is a well taught, good place to start. If you already perform the magic square, this is probably a method you already know.

I gave it a 4 star rating assuming that you have never learned the magic square and would like to start with an easy method that you can learn and start performing quickly.

Instructions are clear and straight forward. Well taught.

A rare 5 stars from me! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 18th, 2019
I've never been big on math effects, including Magic Square.
That wasn't by choice. It's because I'm awful at understanding the details involved with the necessary math.

Tori Noquez just turned things around for me.
I have never actually enjoyed learning math before now. Tori made things so easy to understand, and even easier to replicate.

It's also refreshing to see a confident woman teaching some magic/mentalism. We don't see enough women in our industry.

Overall, I don't think this is just for beginners at all. I'm no beginner, and I absolutely loved this download.
It helped me to understand some of the details I previously didn't get.

The only thing I was left wishing at the end of the 9min video was that it was longer. I was really enjoying the way she explained the math to me. And I always hated math class.

I hope to see more from Tori in the near future!

Better than my old method (by bunches) Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 18th, 2019
I've fiddled with magic squares since I got a book called "MathMagic" when I was a kid. I can make a basic 4x4 5x5, 6x6 square in less than a minute, and transpose it in a minute so you can make it add up to any number over the base for that square. But this is enough different that it's definately worth owning, plus I can apply it to the larger squares. Tons faster and much less math. Much less! Get this!
