I don't know if it could be considered as a Packet Trick but I do like this one:

Love the Four Card Trick by Alex Elmsley. It's simple, easy to follow and has a great climax! Also you end clean!

Long thread, hard to answer.
I would have to say my favorite is a tie between Twisting The Aces/Doc Daley Last Trick and Alex Elmsleys 4 card trick. Reasoning... Twisting was the first packet trick I ever learned (from an old vhs from Magic Max) and the 4 card trick was the first trick I learned from a book. (also love knowing the history behind it and that it is still VERY IMPRESSIVE for being around almost 100 years)

Beyond that, I am just a huge fan of packet tricks. Color Monte still makes me smile. Anything by Emerson and West is a winner. John Bannon kicks butt with any packet trick he puts out. Twins by Bro. John Hamman is a great storyline. I could go on forever but will stop for now.

I do wonder though, is Sam The Bellhop a really long packet trick? Just a thought. Smile

I wouldn't consider Sam the Bellhop a packet trick at all seeing it uses the full deck.

My favorites, in no particular order, are:

Double Back
Twisting The Aces
NFW

My favorite book on the topic is "Small But Deadly", by Paul Hallas. Paul was kind enough to sign my copy for me.

I'd agree with algebraic.
I will add, get a few gaffed decks. You'll have many packet tricks, and you can make your own.
This may have been said before, didn't read the whole thread, so apologies.

Paul's book is a mini-Bible on the subject
Fun to read over and over
He has a 2nd one too, which I need to order

Another vote for Alex Elmsley's Dazzle - I had some cards made up to get the contrasts. Also Gypsy Curse - great effect.

I'm surprised no one mentioned Rabbit Roulette by Steve Dusheck, a packet trick which is wonderful for children and adults. Secondly, Ron Frost's packet effects are always top notch , such as Coincimentally Perfect or Seeing Stars. Paul Hallas also very recently just came out with a wonderful packet trick for children called Wolf at the Door, based on the Three Little Pigs Story!
