Any updates on getting the 'right' card stock in the UK. I've been to all retail suppliers and no luck as of yet. Also, the websites mentioned above don't post to the UK (or if they do it's very expensive!!)

Another thumbs up for this EXCELLENT effect. After some practice, you will get it down - and it still is amazing to see the 'final moment' when the cards link! Thanks a lot Joshua - you are a genius!!!

Just one comment

Upside: This is darn brilliant thinking - I love it.

Downside: There is only a 2% chance that you can do it convincingly with your current business card and 2% chance you can do it with a borrowed Business card. I just checked all my friends business cards - and sorry to say none of them will work (and I have a lot of friends and working associations - haven't found 1 suitable business card yet). Now it doesn't require much to "create" a business card that works, and you can order them anywhere - but expect to change your business cards if you want to perform this. However you can most likely use your current business cards to practice with - but not to perform with.

I hate to say it but the advertisment for this effect led me to believe otherwise - that I could actually use plenty of business cards - and therin lies my dissapointment with this effect.

I personally will hange business cards soon, and when I do I will of course make sure that I can perform this wonderfull effect with the cards.

I made one up and gave it to Bill Goodwin at the Magic Castle library, he hung it up on a statue on the desk and tells me it has started quite a few conversations and attracted a fair amount of interest.
And it does work with most business cards, it's not perfect, but it's close.
You can get a better handout by getting the correct cardstock, but so far, I've had one person figure out how part of it was done, and she figured it out because she does crafts, not magic.
A few years ago, I did cardwarp for some people and one guy came up to me later, and said- you must do it THIS way and nail it, I told him that he was wrong Smile

Another quick review:

this is good! it's workable.
I can keep one of these in my wallet wherever I go.
It takes a lot of practice to get it down, though.

This is my fist post.
I really like conjunction, and had a similar David Blaine levitation reaction when I heard of this effect. I called the dealer asking if this was really possible, who gave me a hint(he really shouldn't have). Still sceptical I bought something else.
Of course there are many similar hints on this thread.
A couple of years later, I decided to try to work it out myself, after I managed it, I then decided to buy the manuscript.
Frankly without Joshua, this effect would never have come about, and I can see that his techniques have been honed and tweaked for untold years.
Thank you Joshua for Conjuction.

Now the real reason, the motivation behind wanting to join this thread.

The challenge starts here!

I can do this, using the deceptive tears, in 1 minute and 15 seconds (self timed) starting with a crisp business card out of my hands.

I also know that I can beat that time because that time was taken about a week ago, and I've gone through about 300 cards since.

As soon as I get it down to 1 minute or under, I would like to post a youtube clip confirming this with witnesses.

Last word on this post. I have performed this at a paid Wedding to several guests who wrote the name of the newly weds.
At first, It does take fairly long. But if you work it, you'll soon find your own patter/presentational style.

Anyways, I want to know if I've got a good time, I'll check back and let you guys know if I've broken the 1 minute barrier.

Thanks again Mr Quinn!
Booyah!

Okay, this thread is getting a bit old, and no-body probably cares any more after reading the last 7 pages.
Last recorded time of completing conjunction: 53 seconds.

I'm going to start a new thread, under conjunction linking cards challenge.

Remember the rules are to start the timer with empty hands, using deceptive tears you should be left with 13 peices of separate debris(although 15 or 17 is most deceptive), the timer stops when hands are empty again. If the conjunction is examined and is not completely seperated then the attempt is void.

I'm definateley looking forward to beating the 53 second mark, as soon as I get myself another couple of thousand cards (you do tend to run out when your obsessivly tearing), and of course making sure I have official proof to back it up with.
Booyah!

I finally learned this effect over the weekend. And just want to check if anyone knows of any good sources for the business cards? Any magicians from the UK managed to track down a good source yet?

Hello.
I've ran out of cards again. This effect is really nice for weddings, or any type of adult get together.
Silly of me really to try to start a magic record attempt claims on it really.
Thought I'd post back on the subject.
Been full time magician for the last severak months, what I mean to say is I got sacked from my last call centre job and am surviving the proceeds of doing magic shows.
Anyway, it's a really nice effect, not a challenge peice, but gives you a chance to chat away and get to know your audience.
Best place I've found cards is at my local print shop, that way you can ask for samples of their cards to try before you buy.
Conjunction rocks! Peace!
Booyah!
