Topic: Karrell Fox's Red Table
Message: Posted by: Hansel (Jan 21, 2008 05:33PM)
Hi, recently I see a performer doing this Jumbo Card Trick, the effect is: you tell to a spectator that you have an imaginary red table, and here you have two decks touch one, you said he touch the red, you open the "Invisible" box and said to the person think any card he thinks the card, you remove one Only ONE Jumbo card from your pocket and matches with the imaginary card of the spectator...someone here knows where I find the explanation for this effect...? In a book, magazine or dvd? IM VERY INTERESTED BECAUSE MATCH PERFECT WITH MY MENTALISM ROUTINE...Maybe the use of a stooge??
Thanks for the Help...
Hansel!!

I think it's in "Another Book" by Karrell Fox, though don't have my copy to confirm.

Another, earlier version of the same type of thing, would be 'Lustig's Spectre Card' detailed in the book "Dunninger's Brain Busters' by Joe Atmore.

It's a staple in George Schindler's act! Kills everytime I see it.

Hi Everyone,

Can I recommend, wholeheartedly, Peter Scarlett's Little Red Table effect, which is, I think precisely what you are looking for. I can recommend anything that you purchase from Peter. The effect that you are enquiring about was, indeed, a Karrell Fox effect. Peter sells Little Red Table in various sizes suitable for every performing situation. Just go to his website at http://www.peterscarlettmagic.com where you will see the effect listed.

Best magical wishes,
Lester

Lester

[/quote]Karrell's version is indeed in "Another Book" and is very clever. You can find it on page 279 of this fantastic book, under the title The Gift of the Magi.

Here's a link to Peter's version:
