To me, one of the hardest places to perform is when you are doing magic infront of a big round table. People at the side can't see , people at the far end can't really see clearly, everybody is eating so you can't really use a table. here are the some of the tricks I do for this situation:

Bill switch
Rope trick
Grey elephants in demark
Chop cup

Any other tricks suitable?

What I would do here is pick 3 spots around the table, this way everyone gets to see you close and hear what you are saying.

I do the same as Darren. I try to do sets for a few couples around the table (Coins Across, DoubleBack, Metamorphosis, and NFW are all things that play well for a couple). Then if the positioning is right I do one piece for the entire table to see - usually a rope routine.

The worst table-arrangement for me is horse-shoe shaped. If you do stand-up you have to stand all the way back so the people at the sides doesn't look at your back. And if you do table-hopping most of the audience can see a bit of what you do, making it impossible to re-use effects.

I think one of the best effects for large awkward tables is a multiple selection routine.

Anything in front of your face works well... bill switch, elastics, d lites, ropes etc.. I agree with the posts above to move around the table. You can tell who is enjoying it more and would give you great reactions..

Someone just told me about Christian Rodd's 100% Guarantee. I bought it, love it and think it is great for that crowd!!
