Hmm, just checking pockets...

D'Lites - Great to get things going, one effect you can do when drunk at end of party Smile
TT - Lit Cigarette Vanish always knocks 'em bandy
Slam - So easy to carry around cant spend it by mistake like others Smile
Steath Pen - My normal pen, nice easy opener..
Super Sharpie - Predict change in pocket, My normal Marker for Sinful etc
Time Machine Watch - my normal watch, ready if audience is right.
Subterfuge - my normal ring, when it arrives!!
FISM Flash - take it out occasionally, goes great with SLAM if I'm in the mood to 'rig-up'

Got a full show there with nothing more than a few bits that most people carry, so looks very impromptu...

Granted, I'm a card guy, but, if I'm to show up at a party, for a party, I wouldn't tend to bring anything at all. If some one asked to see 'something' I'd probably put something together, like match tricks, cigarette magic, paper balls, change in your pocket...cup and paper ball...I mean the impromptu magic is just as strong as you can get. I feel like if you show up with props...Hrm, I just don't know. I just don't think it would be as strong.

I agree, but look thru these guys lists, you'll not see many 'props'
Just a few little helpers, a coin is a coin to the layman Smile

I feel you, Will, however, I would think there was a trick to something if someone brought out an oddity to me, i.e. hot rod, sun and moon coin, d-lites, etc. Heck, a deck of cards could be considered an oddity, as no one, but, magicians, walk around with them.

And as a to layman a coin is a coin, but, not really. I know you are in the UK, so this might not make sense to you, but, if I pull out a half dollar or silver dollar...that is an oddity, even though it's currency just as anything else.

Strong, to me of course, is using the person who's party it is, using their cards for example...or a borrowed coin/object. I think there is a ton of easy to do impromptu magic that if people studied it better they would seem more magical. Does that make any sense?

Ofrmagic...was wondering what kind of reception you get to using "The Yot" regularly. I can't seem to have much luck with mine as it appears I purchased one that is a lot easier to pop then most other people report..has been in my drawer for awhile now!
