Wild card routine from Tommy Wonder for sure. Been playing with iChange from Alakazam, and the new Tsunami trick. Like them both, but the later has many more application. For table setting, Tommy Wonder's! Strolling, Tsunami Transpo!

2 that I've been performing for years:

E-Y-E by Edward Victor (with added bits & pieces from Ken Brooke)

Guiness/Castella by Joe Riding - for me its the greatest 'bar trick' with cards of all time

I don't want to appear controversial but there's a reason I think these 2 are my personal favourites.

With many packet effects, they don't seem to have a strong theme throughout, and they are often presented as a race to get to the finishing line in order to hit them with a finale - e.g. the 3rd card is different, or backs change colour, etc.

With the aforementioned two effects, the magic gets stronger THROUGHOUT the routine but at each stage, something new has happened AND each phase is strong enough to have stood alone on it's own merits.

I also have never been mad on packet tricks that use regular cards you would find in a pack.........IF they are initially removed from a little vinyl wallet!

"Eye Exam" by Danny Archer.

4 Jacks take turns reversing themselves in the packet. Then their backs change color (red to blue, or blue to red, your choice). Then the backs turn into mini Eye Charts - and the last row on the chart is a card reveal.

Wonderful trick, and no sleights - if you can do a biddle count, you can do this. I would recommend it to anyone.
My ex-cat was named "Muffin". "Vomit" would be a better name for her. AKA "The Evil Ball of Fur".

I'd have to say Geoff Williams' "I Hate David Copperfield". It gets consistently great reactions and is a lot of fun to do on my end as well. Smile

Hi, I'm just getting back into Packet tricks. I saw a table hopper do a trick called MARKED ( John Cornelious ) and loved it, and it sparked my return to packet tricks. Anyone know where I can get MARKED , or another trick mentioned in this thread called HAPPY FAMILY ( they sound similar )

Also, I keep seeing the reference to a packet trick called NFW...and couldn't think of what the acronim ( initials ) might stand for...and then it hit me, the spectators reaction. Am I correct, is that the name of the effect? What is the trick. Thanks. Tom

Hi Tom,

Marked can be found in the book The Award Winning Magic of John Cornelius. The effect for NFW can be found by doing a search for it on any good magic dealer website; it IS a VERY strong effect.

Let's see, "fun" packet tricks...

Poor Man's Monte (Richard Vollmer, Apocalypse), Three Blanks Routine (Dave Campbell, The Dave Campbell Legacy), Poor Charlie (Derek Dingle, The Complete Works of Derek Dingle), Presto Printo (Daryl), Call of the Wild (John Bannon), Irish Poker Hand (Dave Campbell, The Dave Campbell Legacy), The Sting (Walt Maddison, Apocalypse), Eight Card Brainwave (Nick Trost, The Card Magic of Nick Trost), Noah's Mix Up (Gene Castillon, Apocalypse), Beyond Belief (Dave Campbell, The Dave Campbell Legacy), 10 Card Monte (Dai Vernon, The Dai Vernon Book of Magic), Intuitive (Peter Duffie, 5x5 Scotland), Dotty Spots (Dave Campbell, 5x5 Scotland), Ambitious Classic (Larry Jennings, The Classic Magic of Larry Jennings), Twisted Sisters (John Bannon), The Gypsy Curse (Peter Kane), Maxi-Twisto (Nick Trost, The Card Magic of Nick Trost), Wild Card (There are SO many great wild card routines in print. I love this plot. Steve Dacri has an excellent routine that duplicates signatures and makes a great way to hand out cards to promote your act), Picasso Aces (Phil Goldstein, Focus), Dangerous Game (Max Maven, PRISM)

Phew, quite a list! Obviously these aren't ALL in my repertoire anymore, but I have performed each and every one at one time or another and all are great IMHO.

Ahimsa,
Vlad

I mentioned this in a another thread, but Doc Eason's King Arthurs pub is a great twist on the original Ton Onosaka's "bicycle built for five" routine

Suprised to see Banon's Twisted Sisters not mentioned. It's a killer 3 times!
Skinner's 3 Card Monte always plays great.
Color Monte - started using that after it sat in the drawer for years.

Cheers!

Those have not been mentioned here because we are talking about packet tricks that do not use "regular" cards. Smile
