"I LOVE this! Simple and deceptive technique with countless possibilities. The Mentalism applications are killer. The triple coincidence effect can even be played as perception altering Mentalism - it’s absolutely going to become part of my repertoire." - Alexander Marsh

"Direct and incredibly mind-trippy. Exactly the kind of magic I love." -Michael Feldman

Steal, switch, vanish, and more with a secret that Erik Tait uses to devastated his audiences. In this project, you not only learn an effect direct from his working repertoire, but you’ll learn a utility move that Erik relies on to get miles ahead of his audience. The best part? There are no gimmicks, and this can be done with a borrowed deck. This is Boxed and Loaded by Erik Tait.

Here’s what happens:

Here’s what happens. You start by openly placing a mystery card inside the card box and placing it on the table for everyone to see. Two spectators each select and memorize cards which are then lost in the deck. The spectators then look into each other’s eyes and on the count of three, they name their selected card at the exact same time. Impossibly the cards they picked are the same cards, which is made even more impossible when you reveal the card placed in the box at the very beginning was the card they each selected. Impossibly this effect uses no forces or duplicate cards. Everything can be examined.

You will not only learn the Triple Coincidence effect that Erik uses at every one of his walk-around gigs, but alternate effects using the core technique of Boxed and Loaded that you can use for transpositions, vanishes, and so much more. You’ll even learn how to adapt the technique so that a mentalist can use it for an extremely deceptive business card peek. Erik teaches both beginner and advanced techniques that you will be able to add to your existing routines. Grab your cards and get Boxed and Loaded by Erik Tait.

Boxed and loaded is a set of ideas and routines packed into a $10 download. This really should be a no brainer for anyone who has $10 to throw at their computer screen, but for those still sitting on the fence here’s my in depth review

Effect: 9/10
The main effect of this download is the triple coincidence. This is a beautiful effect that as you can see from the trailer creates a very unique moment between two spectators then finishes with a kicker ending. Overall I feel that the structure of this effect is solid and the impact is going to be bananas. That moment when two spectators are thinking of the same thought and they verbalize it out loud to one another is nothing short of pure unadulterated wonder. I knock off one point because the ending, having their same thought of card come out of the box seems almost too impossible to me. But others will disagree with me on that I’m sure, and honestly I’m probably just overthinking it.

Apart from the main effect Erik has taken the main sleight in this trick and provided several ideas/tricks to play around with including: vanishing card, a card transpo, using it as a switch (Brilliant), and even a very slick business card peek which I will be playing around with immediately.

Difficulty: intermediate
I would classify this as an intermediate effect. The main sleight isn’t difficult but may seem awkward in the hands of a beginner.

Sleights: 3
There are essentially 3 sleights in the main routine that will require some practice, practice time will vary for each magician but for me I’ve found that 2 of the 3 only took a 15 minutes to feel comfortable and natural. The third has always been a ‘scary’ sleight for me, and I suspect many other magicians. HOWEVER Erik teaches several variations of it and one stupid simple version that anyone should be able to perform.

Teaching: 10/10
As always Erik is a great teacher who breaks down each sleight in a way that makes you feel confident in your ability to learn it. There is one sleight in this effect that would typically scare away some magicians, but fear not! Erik has provided a way around that sleight if it’s too scary for you, but after watching his instruction on the sleights I feel confident in adding the sleight to my repertoire...albeit after some practice sessions

Production: 10/10
As always Penguin put out a well produced download, no surprise there.

Price: 10/10
For $10 everything you get feels like a steal to me.

Overview of download:
Triple coincidence (main effect and teaching)
Vanishing card
Transpo
Card switch
Business card peak
Review and tips on the 2 main sleights used

I highly recommend this to any magician that doesn’t have a triple coincidence in their set...so basically every magician I know. Enjoy everyone! Thanks Erik for putting out a great effect!

Great trick, amazing potential Report this review

The value of this trick comes from the brilliant, under-used utility moves it teaches you. So many applications - especially if you're a mentalist like me. I just wish Erik had gone into more detail on some of the other moves. I don't do m***te, so I'm not that up to speed on the technique for the move he mentions. Could have done with a little bit more hand holding on that...but otherwise this is excellent value and a brilliant trick.

Wow Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 20th, 2021
This is such a great effect and so very well taught! None of the moves are complex, but Eric gives them ample attention throughout the tutorial, nonetheless. And, he teaches several other tricks/options in addition to the main routine. It is well worth the $10 investment.

Eric Tait is one this generations Stars of Magic and Boxed and Loaded shows why. We know that magic done in the hand of a spectator is powerful, but when it's done in their minds, you crush them. Boxed and Loaded does it to two spectators, which ups the power.

Erik credited and got permision form the brilliant and generous Jay Sankey for a technique that make this possible. You will perform this stunning piece of magic.

Outstanding Erik Tait Video Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 24th, 2023
This is a great effect and Erik really delivers with the explanation and in the process, teaches a truly useful but not well known slight. The video is well shot and Erik provides a lot of detail on subtleties needed to pull off the technique. Going beyond just teaching the slight and its application to magic, he shows how mentalists could use this technique as well.

Clever and simple Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 28th, 2023
I purchased this routine a while ago. I always take time to practice it over and over before I actually give a review. It's simple,clever, and impromptu routine. Erik tait is a good teacher as much as he is a host. He goes over everything and any alternative handling for those that want less sleights.

You get more than the trick you're buying Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 22nd, 2022
This is a great deal. You get the trick you see in the demo video, but you also get some bonus tricks from Erik that use the move you learn for Boxed and Loaded. Really great value here.

a bit disapointed Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 26th, 2022
Well, it was exactly what I thought, the moves and all.

Sure, there is somethings that Erik is talking about and there is other similar effects but I don't think think this is worth 10$

Get so much for your money, great purchase! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 9th, 2022
This is the first magic download I've decided to buy in 2022, and man what a great start to the year! Erik gives us an epic utility move which is only limited by your imagination.

I'm already thinking about using the face up version for a card across type effect. The value here is phenomenal. He also gives great tips and insight on one of the most difficult moves to get down, the one handed top palm.

The triple coincidence effect is a worker and I love the simplicity of it yet the effect on the spectators is huge.

Well done Erik, that routine is a worker and the main concept of this project is a tool I'll be working with from here on out.

Cheers!
