Part of The Houdini Series
Wayne revisits one of his best-selling and most talked-about plots: ‘Conjurors Choice’ and lends it a Houdini theme. Mystifying, novel, with Wayne’s charming Harry Houdini storyline. There are no additions, alternate outs, no this or that. Despite the freedom of the choices made by the spectator, they end up with Houdini’s prediction. The routine is self-working, and the story goes:
“Houdini was one of the most famous stage magicians and illusionists in the world; even today, ask the average person to name a magician and Houdini will come to mind. Harry Houdini died on Halloween Night, 1926 – an auspicious date, given his deep interest in spiritualism and related matters. Just days before he died, as if he had a premonition of the accident that would befall him, he is said to have written a letter to his wife Bess to be opened following his death. As it turned out, this was to be his final letter. I have a replica of the letter here. Speculation has grown that the letter contained clues about how he could be contacted from beyond the grave, but in fact it comprised a series of simple instructions. I’d like you to follow those instructions now…”
This is a customized Houdini theme version of Wayne’s Conjurer’s Choice with full permission from Norm Nielson to reprint all the authentic magic posters of famous magicians and the cards reduced from postcard size to poker card size which make this a lot better to perform and very commercial.
You receive the full set of high quality full color printed cards, an antique letter from Houdini made in tyvek material. Video and PDF written instructions are both included.
Join your host Wayne Dobson Live at The Magic Circle, London in this unique DVD presentation. For the first time on video Wayne explains in detail, the secrets behind his favourite routines.

Born from an idea while watching Steve Valentine’s Card to Pocket DVD, Mike came up with a super little gimmick that will make any performer look like a card shark!
A 10 card poker game is suggested, and the performer shuffles and deals 5 cards to the spectator and 5 cards to himself.
The 5 spectator’s cards are looked at first and it seems like a good hand. Three 5’s and 2 Aces, a full house.
An beautiful elegant deceptive close up black meshed two way force bag.
9 x 6 inches, this force bag is ideal for the strolling magician and mentalist.
Comes complete with Wayne’s updated killer routine, Lucky Dip 2.0,
Derren Brown’s “top go to effect…”
