Coin Box Killers by Doug Brewer
Each one of these routines has a unique need or presentation built into them. For example, the first three routines, Wile E. Coyote Coin Box, Translocated Okito Box, and The Flying Stupendas, are my special occasion routines. These are a little longer in performance time and may require a close-up pad, but in the right place, they kill.
The next two routines, Brass Trio and The Invisible, are my 2 copper/1 silver routines for the coin box and are two of the strongest routines in the book.
The two routines after that are Fidget Simplified (a reworking of one of my favorite spellbound-type routines) and Okit-O, Cheat-O, a routine from my magician friend, Syd Segal. Both are copper/silverrass routines that use all three coins to great advantage.
After that, three of my walk-around routines are taught. These are Exporter, Bertram Revisited, and Stand-up Box Through Hand. If anything you learn from this book, include these three. They are strong and practical routines that I use consistently in my strolling and banquet work.
As a kind of fun challenge, I've included a routine of mine called Progressive Assembly. It started out as a challenge to myself - the plot intrigued me. So, I've included my version of it here.
Finally, the book concludes with the routines, The Promoter and Rice Surprise, that use the coin box as a production container - an unusual use in most routines. You will be pleasantly surprised at how much magic can be hidden in a simple coin box. Every routine in this book is meant to be performed standing with no lap work required.
