The Trick ‘Second Spot’ by the late Maurice Fogel was……. and still is a superb effect! With the current popularity for ‘Mentalist Magic’ this seemed to be a perfect addition to the ‘A Kind of Magic’…… range of effects. It was Patrick Page who suggested that this would work very well indeed by using wooden boxes rather than the original bags…… The beauty of this is that the method or effect has not been changed… .but aesthetically the trick has been elevated to a more sophisticated ‘presentation’ This Effect is very simple in it’s method….. (The Best Tricks usually are!)….. but….. presented correctly this is one of the most powerful tricks ever invented!
The magician has 4 spectators put something in each of four boxes while the magician is not looking. He then dumps out the items in each box and is able to tell which item belongs to who! It is the Fogel Second Spot effect in boxes instead of bags.
Made by Coln Rose (Five of Hearts Magic) and is no longer available on his site. with custom carry bag specifically designed to hold the boxes. The boxes are 2.75 inches tall and 1 5/8 inches in diameter.
