Die-Confundus
by Professor Spellbinder

More deceptive than ever, the spectator gets to choose which die to roll and handles the die throughout the routines without discovering the secret of Die-Confundus. You make these dice yourself, or you can order them ready made from our special resources. Several routine scenarios are given including Spellbinder's "Bank Robbery," which he purposely left out of his "Banker's Dream" e-Book for use with his Die-Confundus.

Desk Organizer Switch Box
by Wiz Kid Qua-Fiki

Qua-Fiki designed this to use in Professor Spellbinder's "Bank Robbery" routine described in Die-Confundus above, but it has many more uses than that. The mentalist will find uses for it any time a switch is needed of envelopes, playing cards (including Tarot cards), photos, business cards, etc. The Desk Organizer holds your pens, glue sticks, rubber bands, paper for billets, and because you build it yourself, it can hold whatever else you want to design into it. The central box part contains the easy to construct switching parts. Qua-Fiki's first box, shown in the photo, was made out of cardboard, but it is easily made out of craft wood, hardboard or thin plywood once you've made a prototype and understand the simple workings.

Magic Story Cards
by Professor Spellbinder

I can't make a storyteller out of you, but if you have a natural or trained gift for telling stories, you'll find many uses for these Magic Story Cards that can magically illustrate each story you tell. The example used is that of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, but once you understand the principles of the cards and the magic frames, you'll be able to transform it for telling other stories as well. This story has a Magic Mirror that changes the Wicked Queen into a Witch, as well as seven smaller frames that transform forest animals into the seven dwarfs. Your computer prints the cards, and you can make the frames from Dollar Store picture frames glued together into a display.

Missing Card Puzzle
by Professor Spellbinder

Effect: A deck of cards is handed to someone to shuffle. While it is being shuffled, the magician puts a glass and two envelopes on the table. One is a small envelope marked with a question mark. It contains a single tiny playing card- but the face of the card is blank. What happens next is the most puzzling combination of events that results in a card being revealed even before it is randomly chosen from the deck. At the end, all can be handled by the spectators as they attempt to solve the puzzle of the Missing Card.

Impromptu Matrix
by Wiz Kid Qua-Fiki

Qua-Fiki shows how to perform the Matrix coin assembly effect as an impromptu presentation using borrowed cards, borrowed coins, standing or sitting, as a parlor show or in a tablehopping setting. Your spectators are closely involved in the presentation, so it seems as if they have examined everything. You even finish with a giant coin falling onto the table with a clang, if you wish.

Qua-Fiki has created three different ways to accomplish the same effect, so if you wanted to, you could alternate between the three different methods so that spectators who have just seen you perform by one method are baffled again and again.

The INFO page includes buttons to purchase an optional gimmick designed by Qua-Fiki and machine milled by Roy Kueppers just for The Magic Nook.

Bunny Business
by Wiz Kid Qua-Fiki

Cute little bunnies jump from card to card and gather together in a game of follow the leader that resembles a coinless matrix played on Qua-Fiki's felt background board. You can also follow up with a game of hide and seek. The vanishing bunny can reappear hanging on your own back or on the back of your audience helper if you prefer. Made from cards you print out on your computer using Qua-Fiki's templates or your own images if you prefer. Professionally made cards are now available for this effect, but you still have to make the background board and magic card box yourself. Don't worry! Qua-Fiki shows you the easy way to make these simple props yourself.

More Bunny Business
by Wiz Kid Qua-Fiki

The plot thickens. Using the same Rosey, Posey, Hippity and Hoppity bunny characters from Qua-Fiki's original Bunny Business (above), new characters appear - namely, Flopsy, Mopsy, Cottontail and Peter. And of course, good old Bob can't be left out. Made from cards that you print out on your computer using Qua-Fiki's templates or your own images if you prefer. For those who prefer to buy the cards ready-made, Qua-Fiki is now selling professionally made card sets. You still have to make the magic card box yourself, but his directions show you how.

The Mystery of the Missing Carrot
by Wiz Kid Qua-Fiki

Based on Paul Curry's 1965 The Case of the Missing Hat, which was later turned into Leprechauns by Marcom and Emerson and West, Qua-Fiki has made a jumbo card version using his Bunny Business characters and theme. A volunteer from the audience helps you count the bunnies and the carrots to solve the mystery puzzle. Where does the carrot go? And more mysteriously, how does it find its way back? Made from cards that you print out on your computer using Qua-Fiki's templates or your own images if you prefer. Includes directions for making Qua-Fiki's NEW See-Thru Flap-Doodle Bag (its use is optional, but it makes a great combination and finale with this trick!)

Birthday Bunnies
by Wiz Kid Qua-Fiki

The original effect on which this is based is called Invisible Wand, by Larry West, Al Cohen and Shigeo Futagawa, first released in 1970. Qua-Fiki used the principles in his Go Fish Card Trick e-Book, chapter 12, under the name No Fishing-Go Fishing, when he discovered (#1) it involves no real sleight of hand (just a series of rehearsed “moves” ) and (#2) it works with cards of any size, even jumbo cards. His next use of the principle was in his Super Hero trick, starring the Invisible Man.

Effect: Oh, no! The bunnies have really gone into hiding this time, leaving behind only pure white blank cards, blank on both sides! They must have left a clue and it's up to the magician to discover the card that contains the Invisible Bunny carrying the Invisible Wand. Then the bunnies appear one by one, bearing puzzle letters, which the kids soon figure out spell out Happy Birthday when arranged in the correct order. They begin to sing the familiar song and the bunnies identify the birthday child by magic. Print the cards yourself using your computer.

Big, Bad Bunnies
by Wiz Kid Qua-Fiki

The plot is Tenkai's Homing Card, but the method is pure Qua-Fiki, and no difficult sleight of hand is required. The eight bunnies used are still their happy-go-lucky game-playing selves, but their game keeps getting interrupted by the Big Bad Wolf from "another" story. Again and again he reappears in their midst just as the audience is trying to choose one of the bunnies to be "IT." Finally, the wolf is caged where he can't do any harm, but the bunny chosen to be IT can no longer be found, and all eight bunnies end up on the same card waving their ears at the audience.

Print the cards yourself using your computer.

Ultra Coincidental
by Wiz Kid Qua-Fiki

You show two regular decks of playing cards, one with red backs and one with blue backs, and have both decks shuffled. While this is going on, you bring out a deck of Jumbo Cards, show that they are all different, mix them up, and have one of the Jumbo Cards chosen by a member of the audience.

The jumbo card is kept face down and the back is used as a tray on which eight to ten playing cards are randomly dropped, half of the cards from the red back deck and the other half from the blue back deck. One blue back card is chosen and then one red back card is chosen. The cards not chosen are removed, shown face up and returned to their respective decks of cards. Finally, as before, the two small cards and the jumbo card are turned around and all three of them match, an amazing triple coincidence.
