Just wondering what other people like for routines.  I'm somewhat of a Roth guy, lots of work on the
Okito.  Plus you have the slot, and Boston versions also.

About 2 years ago I "developed" a crush on Another Coin Box... You can do things with it that are very difficult to do with an Okito box...

Cool!

It's called "Boston Massacre" but I may be changing it since that title evokes images of the Boston Marathon incident.

Any thoughts on the need for a title change? It seems like a good idea at this point.

For anyone interested in coin box magic, I highly recommend "Coin Box Concepts". It's a 2 volume download with just about 4 hours of material.  This gave me so many ideas, I'll be fiddling with for years.

Here's a very useful review https://youtu.be/alUh14_MJKk

And the guy's website; http://www.thehandsofmagic.com

His name is J. Burke Whittaker and he's hard to find any info at all about, but all I know is he came up with a ton of good, usable material for the okito box.

And Mike I've got an idea for the title:  "The Midnight Run" in reference to Paul Revere. And it's still connected to Boston, so that still works..

I've always had fun with Bob Farmer's "Mojo Boogie Boxes" routine.

Mike, I agree that changing the title is a good idea.  I don't know the routine (sorry to admit that!) but if you want to keep some sort of regional connection, how about "Cape Cod Coins"?

I agree with Rick's post above recommending J. Burk Whittaker's 2 vol. DVD set, Coin Box Concepts.

Also, a very strong recommendation for the book, "Walk Around the Box" by Joe Cole. It is an outstanding resource for coin box work done mostly in the hands. Makes it perfect for stand-up. BTW, the DVD set above is also mostly stand-up.
