Cas na Clocha (Deluxe) by Hand Crafted Miracles
Cas na Clocha is far more than just a trick -- it is an entertaining & engaging mini-act presented in the guise of an ancient (con) game of chance. The game is played with a hand-made, carved wooden box that holds a stick embedded with three "stones." The stick is placed into the box, which is given a series of end-to-end turns. The spectator must ultimately guess which end of the box contains the odd-colored stone. The escalating routine is designed to show spectators how a clever con artist was able to fool the magician, & subsequently the spectators, during a demonstration & explanation of how it was originally accomplished. Just when everyone thinks they have all the methods figured out, they are hit with a kicker ending that leaves them all wondering if perhaps there is something to "ancient magic" after all. The routine is easy to perform, starts & ends entirely examinable, resets in seconds, is angle friendly & relies on easy-to-learn sleights that you may already have in your repertoire. The online video covers numerous methods to accomplish every move, & discusses how to make each appear natural based on a performer's ability & style. The psychology of maximizing audience immersion is also discussed, as well as how to add individual personality & flair to the routine. Cas na Clocha is one of those rare effects that leaves the audience feeling entertained & awed rather than just fooled/foolish -- isn't that what magic should really be about? Cas na Clocha will be available in three models to suit your style & budget. All versions are functionally exactly the same. Increased pricing reflects extra carving & finish work on the Deluxe & Collector's editions. The Original/Rustic Edition Box is lightly sanded & naturally stained. It includes a plain Birch stick, giving the feel of a hand-made gambling tool that perhaps could have been used for generations. The Deluxe/Glossy Edition Box is finished with several coats of high gloss finish & provided with a carved Walnut stick for those who desire a more finished/refined prop for their routine or performance style. The Collector's Limited Edition is strictly limited to 50 signed & numbered sets. The Collector's Edition comes in an intricately-carved display box featuring original art by the creator, Dan (Dannicus) Frecks. The uniquely designed, all-wood latching display box securely holds the effect's components in a custom fit rubber insert. The display box is hand gilded with silver & gold leaf. The Cas na Clocha box & sticks sets are finely engraved, & the carved box lid design is hand leafed with 18 kt. Gold. The Birch sticks are fitted with semi-precious polished Cabochon stones including; Jaspar, Lapis Lazuli, & Malachite (stone types may vary depending on availability).
