I'm doing a research on "Do as I do" with one or two decks.
As it may involve methods, I've placed a more detailed post with the sources alrready explored in Secret Sessions
Since not everyone is following the secret sessions, I'm looking any reference on "You do as I do effects" and already went through the many Jean Hugard and the Vernon versions.
Thanks for any contribution.

Here's another one from Harry Lorayne, that I have not seen performed (except by me)or even discussed on any of the magic forums. It's called "Platinum Discrepancy" which first appeared as a preview of Harry's book "Personal Collection" in Genii magazine 11/2001. It's a one deck version of the plot and in my opinion it's a really great one.

Ganson, Lewis: Matching the Cards - Ganson's Magic Teach-In Series ©1977 1st edition The Supreme Magic Co. Ltd and now Martin Breese: When Lewis Ganson asked Dai Vernon what he considered to be the best card effect, he replied that in his opinion "Matching The Cards" would be difficult to beat, particularly when performed for lay audiences. His opinion is shared by many of the world's leading card experts, who have often featured one version or another in their acts. The grand daddy of this effect can be found in Magician's Tricks by Hatton and Plate. The effect of Vernon's version is as follows: A card is selected by a spectator and placed face down on the table without the face being shown, then the performer endeavors to cut to the three other cards which match to make 'four of a kind'. He shows each card as it is found - three Eights and places them face down on the table. When the spectator's card is turned, it is found to be a King, so seemingly a mistake has been made. However, when the other three cards are turned face up once more, they prove to be all Kings! You will learn variations by Dai Vernon, Nate Leipzig, Herbert Milton, Faucett Ross, Fred Lowe, and Luis Gavilondo; p 25 Matching "Do As I Do"

There are still a few that I could not locate and you can see that some of the references are not complete, missing a page number or some data enabling a researcher to easily find the effect.

Thus don't hesitate to help completing this list, either filling up some blank in existing references or adding existing routine with their full reference.

"Optical Prediction" in "The Classic Magic of Larry Jennings" is a nice follow up to Do As I Do. It just requires swaping decks one more time and stealing a card before you swap.

Would you consider Michael Vincent's effect "Kismet" a sort of one deck "do as I do"?

Yes I think we could and as Michael Vincent is one of my very preferred performers I will support the inclusion of his Kismet into the list.

... and thanks to Agaton for the accolade: it's nice to have Manila friends sharing magic here.

From "Scarne Card Tricks':
"You Do As I Do"/Mr. John Scarne/Pg. 25
"You Do As I Do"/using one pack of cards/Mr. Al Baker & Dr. Ben Braude/Pg. 27

2 marketed effects:
"Two Deck Coincidence" & "Mentalink"

Sorry, Mr. "O". Just noticed this:

"Two Deck Coincidence": Dealer item. Originally: Mr. Geoff Maltby of Repro Magic.
The selling rights were purchased by Mr. Mike Danata. It is available (from him) at:
http://www.mikedanatasmagicstudio.co.uk
"Mentalink": Also a dealer item. From 1986. Glau's Black Magic Collection, Prescott, Arizona. (I bought this effect from a fellow Café member, and not aware if
this dealer is still in business?)

Michael Vincent is nothing short of inspirational, and Kismet has quickly become one of my favorite effects. Glad it made the list! Smile

I think this can also be added to the list: 'Same Think', Between Two Minds Too by Walter Pharr & Ned Rutledge (page 11)...

The Effect (second phase):

"...Going on a more advanced test, the spectator takes half the deck, the performer the remaining half. Each selects a card from his/her half, replaces it, and cuts the cards. As each turns cards face up one at a time, the performer says, 'stop'. The performer's selected card is now showing. If the spectator's next face up card is his/her chosen card, then rapport has been established. It is the chosen card, and there's rapport!"

Hi Lawrence,

My effect "Kitchen Sync" appeared in MAGIC in August 2006; in The Linking Ring in July 2007; and in M-U-M in August 2007. Jeez. Talk about overkill!

Can you give a brief description (one deck? two decks? number of exchange of decks...) which makes it original

Vigil's diplopia is largely inspired by (and credits it in its source) Paul Cummins' tapalack (published in Magic Magazine july 2005). Michael Vincent's Kismet is in the same vein, but with major differences in the modus operandi.

This is my methodological tweak of George Engel’s “Do As I Do”, from Hugard‘s Magic Monthly, May 1949. My handling eliminates the need to spread the deck face-up to spot the top and bottom cards. And you are not forced to frantically search through your participant’s deck, find two cards and reposition them to the top and bottom, while purportedly looking for your card.

The performer and participant choose a card from their respective decks and then bury them in their decks. They exchange decks, and remove and table the cards that they chose from the other deck.

The performer and participant each cut a small packet of cards off the top of their decks. They each count their packets into face-down piles. They are surprised to discover that they each have the same number of cards in their piles.

They table these piles face-up off to the side of the table and discover the same card on the face of each pile. They table the balance of their deck face-up off to one side and discover that the face cards of their decks match. Finally, they turn over their selected cards, revealing the final, perfect match.
