Milton Bradley the famous US game company brought out a series of magic tricks under the brand “MAGIC WORKS” that were sold in toy stores and mass marketers in the mid 90’s. The first effects were manufactured by Tenyo of Japan and then later MB enlisted the help of Mark Sedducatti to create three additional Electronic effects. The “Guardian of the Grave” is one of those later effects. Since it was designed for the public, it is self working but nonetheless a very clever amusement.
The audience is shown an ancient coffin which you explain is inhabited by the spirit of a magical tribal king who lived long ago. This ancient spirit will help you to read people’s minds! You then show the spectator four cards, with a different symbol. You ask the spectator to mentally select one card. You predict which card this will be and secretly “tell” the spirit in the coffin, then seal it so your prediction can’t be changed. The spectator then points to the card he or she is thinking of, when the lid of the coffin is raised the spirit speaks! It’s voice says which card was picked. It is the spectators selection.
Spirit in the Coffin includes: Electronic coffin unit, four symbol cards, fully illustrated easy-to-follow instructions with special performance hints.
Requires 2 “AA” size alkaline batteries (not included)
These are unopened in original packaging, packaging shows some shelf wear (especially to the built in shelf hook), overall I would consider this in good condition
