The Magic Shop in Levittown NY on Wantagh, Ave has recently moved. Phil the Owner showed me a great one where you let them cut the deck as much as they want. Then you tell them how many cards theirs is from the top. he said its the oldest trick in the book, but I have spoken to young magicians who have never heard of it before. PM if you want the details.

Sounds like the Lazy Man's Card Trick.

That's what it is. - "Oldest trick in the book" except that nobody was doing anything like it, and I was fooling top names in magic with it, etc., - until I put it into CLOSE-UP CARD MAGIC in 1962. I think I can cite a couple of thousand tricks that are OLDER. I love this great piece of knowledge!

Yes, that's where I learned it -- from your book, Harry. It is still one of my favorite tricks, and one of my favorite books!

I hope this will be a useful resource for those researching self-working card tricks. Enjoy!



Have just discovered this thread of threads. I guess I will be busy for some time with all the material referred to.

Thank you for offering your search to the community.
So much to do, so little time . . .

Wow, I came here to find some good SWCTs, and hit the jackpot! A hearty thanks is in order. I double-checked, and the first 3 links are, indeed, dead. Any chance to fix them or are those threads long gone?

I often open with Gemini Twins. It moves fast and the spectator thinks they're doing the magic. Lazy Man's Card Trick and Do as I Do are also great. I think Scarne's Cross Suits is a sleeper. Very strong and has worked for me.

It's nice to have these threads combined, thanks! Looking forward to breaking into High Caliber when it gets here. I like Overkill but don't do too many other self-workers.

A fantastic and much appreciated resource. I'm going to knuckle down and try to work my way through as many as I can. I recently discovered Tamariz "neither blind nor stupid" which combined with a great little tweak to the ending suggested very kindly by a fellow Magic Café member now leads me directly into "out of this world." I'm now looking for the next step in my routine which I'm pretty certain I'll discover via this thread. Many thanks for creating it!

Dear friend Bob,

As suggested in ROBERTO LIGHT book, you can finish this small routine with another mental effect of telephaty.

Truly yours,

Another trick that I just found and is now in my favorites is Here's Your Card by Herb Rungie, described in J.G. Thompson's, "My Best."
