Yay or nay?

Good for walkaround?

Reset?

Issues with producing the same ball a few times every hour?

Hello to all,

I will send some dirty pool to Murphy's later this week
I actually carry 2 balls (pun intended) with me when I do walk around

I carry two balls with me too. I have pinned two ball holders under my jacket for getting the ball rather than how it is mentioned in the directions.

Since there are only 15 cards it is NOT unusual for the same ball to come up more than once. However the real strenght of this routine is in the Ball Production from the card case.

I do this in walk around almost every week in the restaurant I do magic for.
Since the main trick is the ball production, I just fan the cards out and have one chosen at random (?) then show the ball in the card case matches.

In strolling restaurant work, I found dealing the cards on the table and having them eliminated SLOWED things down (also most table with food don't have room for 15 cards in a triangle.

So I walk up to the table. Remove the 15 cards from the card case. Place the case on the table, then turn show the cards are different face up. The cards are turned face down and one chosen. The card case is picked up and a numbered ball falls out. The person turns the card over and see the same number. This is quick and plays well. You can put the cards in the case and easily clip the ball back into a ball holder on your way to the next table.

I do the same thing than magicbuilder when I have no time or space
but please take the time to try the full version because it makes SO much sense

Thanks Michel. Great routine - I just picked it up.

Is there a recommended approach when not wearing a jacket? A load-from-pocket as with a Chop Cup routine or something like that?
