What's a Sucker Box?It's a trick where you "sucker" your audience into thinking they know how you did it- right up to the surprise ending!They think they see how you are doing this trick- but they are truly fooled at the end!
Place the playing card inside the left section of the box, and close the door. As you tell your audience that the card has "vanished", you tilt the box to one side. Your audience can not only HEAR the card sliding to the other side- but they can SEE it slide past the opening between the two doors!
Open the left door to "show" the card is gone. Of course, they'll insist that the card just slid over into the other side of the box!
So you close the door, tilt the box so the spectators hear and see the card slide to the back to the left side, and again tell them that the card has vanished, opening the right side door this time. The audience will insist that the card is now over to the left.
And now the magic happens! This time, you open the right side AND the left side doors at the same time- and the card really has disappeared! And THEN you produce the card from your pocket, or under your closeup mat, or wherever- even from something that was sitting in full view all along!
Then, if you'd like, you can vanish the card in your favorite method, then open the box again to reveal that the card is back inside the box!Just like Peter does it in the demo video above!
And this one is customizable!You can use your own playing card of a different value.Or you can use an image of a birthday child or other important member of the audience.Or you can use an Alphabet Letter deck (available below).
This is a terrific effect that will get your audience really involved!And there is no sleight of hand needed!
