Dean’s Triangle: perhaps the greatest coin effect ever

Winning Bid: $1,205.00

I remember watching Dean Demo this at a convention.  I must have watched it 25 times. He was sick of seeing me.  I really was not trying to figure it out I was just appreciating it for what it was (and the price was a little beyond what I could afford at the at time!). So I have had this in my possession for about 4 years. Did not want to let it go thinking I would really like to perform it someday.  Finally realizing that it is very difficult to be a performing magician and a magic dealer and do either well, I have decided to let it go in this auction and stay in my dealers room in the house of magic. It needs to be performed.

I realize I am taking a risk not fully showing the prop assembled in the auction photo.  People like to see things.  But This is brand new and was never opened even by me until today.  The protective cover is still on the glass and the props. I decided to leave it that way. I think the buyer will appreciate that. I was amazed to find out how each item has its well protected place within the case (the case was in fact made by Joe Porper of magic and pool cue fame).  It is all remarkably designed.  The coins are Jamie Schoolcraft (nothing but the best) and the prop itself is Doug Malloy and has his custom nameplate.  So some of the best manufacturers in the world came together to make this prop.  This was Dean’s baby and he may have been more proud of this effect than any other thing he created (kind of says so in the written part of the instructions). He wanted it done right.

Please watch the video and be enjoy.  You are seeing only part of the routine.  Your chance to own it.  As good as the video is this should be seen in person. It was amazing.  Comes with everything including DVD and written instructions. Never used.

2006 Magic Cafe Review: Dean Dill has a new effect that has killed lay and magician audiences alike.

It’s called “Dean’s Triangle” and the routine has slowly evolved over the past 3 years. It started as a coins through the table routine but today it’s so much more. Dean’s Triangle utilizes a beautiful prop, a custom precision coin gaff, and several secret (very clever and diabolical) new principals.

The basic routine is constructed in four phases. Each phase is more amazing than the last. The 4th phase is really an encore performance and a final convincer with lots of wallop. The magic is beautifully woven into the story of the Bermuda Triangle, a place where objects mysteriously disappear and pass into another dimension. It is highly visual and direct magic! In fact, in the final two coins appear to penetrate through clear Plexiglas. Words cannot describe how beautiful these penetrations are.

Dean has carefully choreographed every moment for maximum effect. He’s tested the routine with lay and magician audiences over hundreds of performances.

The prop itself is a true work of art. Custom made by Doug Malloy and Joe Porper, it has a triangular base and an elevated triangular table top supported by 2 chrome rods. Each triangle has a velvet surface and the two surfaces are aligned in a visually stunning design. The velvet table top is removed for the last two phases to reveal a clear Plexiglas surface. The table facilitates the magic, but does not appear to contain any trap doors or secret gaffs. For all practical purposes it is examinable and appears perfectly innocent.

I have had the privilege of watching Dean develop this routine, and today I own Dean’s Triangle. Much to my delight, when I perform this routine, people literally scream in amazement. It’s visual and impossible coin magic at it’s best.

Like all of Dean’s routines, it’s well thought out with many subtle convincers. You start the routine with 3 coins and cleanly end with three coins. Everything appears quite natural and above board with no fancy or suspicious moves. This is a beautiful piece of magic!

I know this sounds like a commercial but it’s not. Dean, forgive me, but I so excited and passionate about this new effect that I’m busting out to let everyone know about it. I’ve been chomping at the bit to talk about this for 3 long years. Now that it’s coming into limited production, I want everyone who’s serious about coin magic to see the Bermuda Triangle in action.
