The only negative I'll mention here is that the download didn't go smoothly-which frustrated me because I was dying to learn this thing! Now that I have, I can say: the demo video is accurate. No worries about edits, or hidden difficulties after the fact of purchase. I could not imagine how this could work-but it works exactly as, and as quickly as it does in the demo. Key points: spectator can handle, hold matchbox at the start. They sign one match, they give it the final push in-they shake the box to their hearts content-the magician does the impossible-and the spectator gets a souvenir AND may again handle the box. So, this is an effect that excited me and STILL excites me after viewing. That doesn't always happen! VS is perfectly thorough in teaching this-right down to making a demo version for the sake of camera clarity. Every detail is covered, including one I thought of, mid tutorial. It's clear, that much thought and care went into this effect-born out of the creator's research on mentalism. The final tips address what to practice, and why the working gets easier with the same box over time. Without saying much more, the 'business' regarding final lit match is easily covered BEFORE the magician even turns around!
More: the entire premise, as well as the prop is a welcome relief from cards and coins. It's already memorable, and because it's done with a matchbox, it's even more memorable!!!
The gimmick is easy to make-will last for a long time, easy and cheap to remake if needed. One thought I have regarding matches: this being that matchboxes I see in supermarkets and stores here in the Midwestern U.S., are thinner. I never see the thicker boxes anywhere. Bars and restaurants likewise use thin ones, and also miniture ones. The video seems to have been made in Europe, and the box SV uses, may be more common there, but definately not here. While the effect could work with a thin box, a deeper one enhances the sense that the signed match will be truly shuffled and lost-because the the matches get shaken side to side AND up and down. A thinner box limits the shakes to side to side. Ebay has the thicker, old fashioned boxes available in packs of 10, 20, 30. Worth the trouble, in my view. The actual gimmick, costs nearly nothing. What else can I say, but GET THIS-!!!

You even could do this trick with a borrowed matchbox (as long you have your gimmick with you and your gimmick fits the size of the borrowed matchbox). Very clever method! Adding and stealing the gimmick needs a little bit of practice, but Victor explains this part very well. Really love this little piece of magic!
