Another simple trick for you - when the magician introduces that match sticks have a special property...he claims they can be made "magnetic". He pulls out a matchbox and opens it 1/4 of the way to show the heads of the matches are loose, shakes them around to show it and then closes the matchbox shut. The magician then turns the matchbox over and waves a hand over the box claiming to "magnetize" the matches whilie saying some magic words like "Abracadabra". The magician then proceeds to open the box upside down, holding the matchhead end of the box lightly between two fingers. The matches do not fall. Then after...with a quick shift of the hand, the magician then "de-magnetizes" the matchbox and the matches fall to the ground. This is how this trick works - More...


Take a box of wooden matchsticks, shorten one matchstick to the width of the matchbox and press it into place across the other matchsticks at the half-way point in the box. Look at the picture for better understanding. It should be tight enough to hold the other matches in place and still allow you to open and close the matchbox. This match holds the others in place. A gentle squeeze on the sides of the box will cause the matches to fall out.
