Effect: The wizard displays four
cards, each depicting a different colored potion bottle (dragon
potion). The wizard pours the red potion into his cauldron. The
cards are shown again and the red potion has been replaced by an
empty bottle (or a picture of simmering cauldron, your choice).
But no dragon appears. So the wizard pours the blue potion into
the cauldron. When the cards are displayed again, now the blue
potion bottle is empty. Still no dragon. This process is repeated
for the purple and green potions. But each time a potion is used,
it has no effect... no dragon appears. The Wizard realizes that
he has forgotten to recite the necessary incantation. He needs to
look up the spell in his library. The cards are shown again and
each has a "Book of Spells" on it. The wizard finds the
spell he needs and recites it. The cards are flipped over to
reveal that the four potion bottles have now been replaced by
four different colored dragons.
BONUS: Includes an alternate
Mismade Dragon ending. The four potion bottles are
emptied one at a time as usual. But when the wizard recites the
dragon conjuring spell, the results are highly unexpected. Since
the four different colored potions were all mixed into the
cauldron, the four dragons are all mixed up. The wizard promptly
casts another spell to straighten out the situation. Four
different dragons are subsequently revealed.
Includes templates for printing out the cards
needed on your computer; regular Poker card size; Jumbo card
size; and extra large 5" by 7" size.
