Did anyone ever tell you that you look like Copperfield? Who's the dude with the beard?

Mike Close's handling of the Invisible Deck uses Simon's stack, as well as the Birthday Book, which will blow anyone away...these are starters for those of us who get discouraged thinking that Simon's stack is mostly good for poker deals and such.

Scott's list is quite incredible!

However, I would like to point out that the Magic Square created with Orville Meyer's "Amazing Magic Square & Master Memory Demonstration" will add up to the chosen total in up to 86 different ways - not 24!

Have a look at http://freespace.virgin.net/mark.farrar1/msq4x4cm.htm for further details.

When I write those entries, I basically go by what is said in the work itself. My copy of Orville Meyer's book actually says 22, with the 2 crossed out and 4 repeatedly added in its place.

Having said that, I believe Mark is correct, and there are 86 ways. I have found that you often don't have to show more than 5-6 ways that a square adds up to a number to be impressive.

There is a great Memorized Deck effect by Jörg Alexander Weber. I got it from his book Zauber Kunst Stücke, which every German speeking magician should get. You will learn a lot about costruction, routining and presentation there. And for those, who don´t speak German,I think it is also in his FFFF notes.

Yours Felix

I think you can get Jörg's English notes from Richard Hatch if you are interested. (www.magicbookshop.com)
(For those interested in the effect: it is a very convincing triple challange location in which you do not look at the cards and which includes a thought-of card.)
