Hello Magicians,
I'm pretty new to Magic Café, But I'm not as new To magic (4 Years). I'm Doing a magic show today, but need a few more trix! I have some Utility props(thumb tip, change bag,)But I wasn't prepared to do a show! Can anyone help me out, If you know any good trix that can be made, or simple effects please post?

Today?
Unprepared?
I wouldn't do it.
If you must perform then prepare with what you have and know.
If you have rope or cord, coins, paper and know some sleight of hand with those then go with that.
Cut and Restored Rope
Buddha Papers
Torn and Restored Paper
Coins Across
Finger Ring and String

If you must perform, get a Svengali deck and or Stripper deck. Tons of card tricks with just does two items.
Cups and Balls, Penetration Frame. Proffesor's Night Mare, Rainbow Ropes, Production Boxes.
Good Luck!

Thanks, I do have a Svengali deck, but don't have any of my "professional Props"(the things I'd want to preform in front of 25-30 people) with me. I only have 4 hours to prep. They asked me this morning to preform at a party, even though ALL my magic props are at my house!

Please, do yourself a favor and tell them you are not ready or you have some other appointment. If you start putting together something you've never practiced and this is your first show then you will have 30 people who will never respect you as an entertainer.
Tell the you're busy or go back to your house and get all the stuff you've done for the last four years, but don't start getting new stuff and thinking it's all going to work out.

I have to agree with Greg.
I did not realise the whole story.
If there is no way out, do walk around with what you have.
