I like the "this and that" card trick a lot, the last card always gets a great reaction.

I'm performing Strange Travelers a lot lately and it gets great reactions. I count the 20 cards from a regular deck that I first spread to show all cards different so don't take them out of the black wallet.

I actually prefer Double Back (Jon Allen) to NFW. With the latter, I have had people asking me why can't they see the "four jokers" face up in the beginning. The former has cleaner mechanics and the handling can be masked up more effectively (for me at least). Both are great killers when performed right, I just find DB a bit more seamless.


Ya, I don't like NFW for the same reason. The only part of double back that I don't like is putting the two cards face to face without flashing.

I like doing this one now: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xC5t6evZYiE ... basically the same effect

I say: "for this trick, all you have to do is find one of the queen of clubs. see, there's one of them on the top. and it gets even easier, because the bottom card is also the queen of clubs. and you really shouldn't have any problem finding a queen of clubs, because the two middle cards are queen of clubs also. but it's actually trickier than you think, because this card is a 5 of hearts, this card is a 5 of hearts, and these two cards are 5 of hearts".

I think it's a descent routine because the spectator sort of understands why you just don't freely show all the cards face up at once by playing it off a guessing game where you have to "find the queen" and that's why they're all face down and hidden. but the spectator still thinks they've seen all 4 queens... and they know that they've definitely seen 2 there at the end at the same time. I also think it's a bit easier to perform than NFW and double back.

I'm a little disappointed not to have heard more love for Sympathetic Aces (I think I saw it mentioned once). I don't know how many packets of this Emerson & West classic I have worn out over the years. The cards were crap and would fade almost before your eyes, but I love the story and it's so very visual. I still have a pack for walk around at civil unions. I wish I could find some more!

Virginia City Shuffle is an awesome packet trick. It is fun to perform and spectators love it. You can end completely clean with all the cards in their hands.

I started this thread with Alex Elmsley's Dazzle and I still feel the same way about it - this is the best packet trick of all time! Watch it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ck9LFEfZRGI Smile.

B'Wave is the only packet trick I ALWAYS carry with me. That gets my vote. Slays 'em every time.

Yep, B'Wave is a great one alright...I carry it too, for years now. Smile

Easy to do and it's simply good presentation that sells its enduring amazement.

Not sure it's the best or anything but it's definitely one of them...Definitely in the to 10, which is remarkable in itself. Smile

This past year "Mega Wave" by John Bannon is my go to Packet trick. Plus he gave me an on camera credit for the alternative handling he describes which was a huge honor for me!

I don't think I've left the house in the last 10 years without carrying 2 Jokers and a Queen for 3 Card Monte:

1) If I'm ever kidnapped, transported to a different country, and make a daring escape- I can make enough money to get back home with my 3 cards (after making a couple of friends Smile )

2) If someone asks to see a trick, I can straight up pull it out and perform it.

3) If I want to bring magic into the conversation, I begin by asking about places we've all travel led- talk about hustles- mention I can demonstrate.

My 3 cents,

jamie

This is probably because there have been updated versions of the plot like John Bannon's
"Royal Scam" that you should check out.
