I'll also suggest Verbal Magic by Juan Tamariz. The focus is on magic that is done with audience participation.

Originally, these were items that Tamariz used for a series of radio shows. This forced him to come up with precise verbal instructions that enabled the audience participants to perform the necessary actions correctly. At the same time, the instructions were crafted to make the tricks more deceptive.


Barry,

since my great trust in you, I may think of re-reading Verbal Magic again, but to be honest I wasn't impressed at all by its contents. The best two-three effects in it could not compare to so many better self-workers. I guess it could be OK if your audience is home, listening to the radio, but for a live audience mmmmhhh ...

For a small packet trick, I would recommend "Twisting the Aces." It uses an Elmsley count. With a little bit of practice, you could do the count quite naturally.

I believe that "Twisting the aces" does not qualifies as a self-working effect at all, in the sense that such an effect should need no technique at all apart from dealing, shuffling and cutting the deck.
So much to do, so little time . . .

Try Up The Ante as the trick that does require dealing......you will leave them flummoxed!
Have you tried 'Up The Ante' yet?? The ultimate gambling demo....a self-working wonder! See the reviews here on the cafe.

A great self working in the hands of the spectaor is the "7-16" card trick. They do the dealing and it's an amazing card trick. Hard to reverse engineer for the spectator also.
