PROS

There are several card to box and box to card routines available. I can’t say I’ve seen them all, but I have seen quite a few. What I really like about this one is the simplicity and versatility of the design. From the participants viewpoint, the deck of cards becomes instantly boxed or the box instantly vanishes. From a performers perspective, the entire gimmick is hidden within a single card and it is very easy to handle.

The explanation was very good. Be aware that the explanation was done to music with subtitles.

I would think that most any beginner could master this with just a small bit of practice.

The effect is most suitable for street, walk-around, or parlor magic, probably not so much for stage.

The gimmick is very well made.

CONS

The only drawback I see is he doesn’t explain how to construct a replacement gimmick. If you have some familiarity with constructing gimmicks, you might be able to figure out how it is made. Otherwise, you will need to re-purchase this effect when your gimmick wears out. Figure it will wear out at about the same rate as your cards and/or card box does. In my case, that would be about every month or two.

VERDICT

I gave this a five star rating. I may point out an issue with cost or cost of refills, but I generally don't downgrade a rating for cost or cost of refills. I focus on the quality of magic that I think might be possible with the product. If the magic potential is great, it's up to you to decide if it's worth the cost. So, with this product, while I may wear out the gimmick in a month or two, it may last you years.

This is a really great version of the card to box or vanishing box effects.
