Would anyone care to comment on the most fabulous self-working card trick they ever came across in their experience as a magician?

Devastation by Geoff Williams..
Untouched by Daryl?
Man, I can't do just one. I know quite a few self-working card tricks.

John Bannon's Dawn Patrol. If you consider the use of the Straddle Faro Shuffle a slight, then this would not fall under the category of self working tricks.
Magic is a vanishing art.

For me, it's Frinell's free cut principle to perform a 4-ace production. The spec cuts the four piles and buries the aces, and yet there they are again at the bottom of each pile. Lovely.

That should read "Finnell," and I'm not altogether sure that I would call the principle "self working."

Thoughts...?

Richard Sanders has a great one on one of the Sankey/Sanders Sessions DVDs. Shuffling Lesson by Chad Long is also a good one.

Caj, I believe it is! You can't beat a good 3 card monte routine. Then again, maybe you can with a good ambitious card routine.

Two I especially like: One is Overkill, from a Paul Harris DVD. And the other is a telephone number trick from a layman's book on Mental Magic with Cards I picked up at a Barnes and Noble. You can involve a number of audience members, with 4 freely selecting cards. At end of the trick, the person dealing the cards deals out their own phone number. The effect on the person is incredible when they realize the significance of the seven cards they dealt out.

Gemini twins... with a good delivery it is incredibly strong magic.. I ALWAYS perform this effect whenever I perform close up.

it is fab... think more mentalism, that's the way to go with this effect.

Life is a test. It is only a test. If this had been a real life, you would have been given further instructions on where to go, and what to do.

"Twisted Sisters" is ridiculously self-working and has some of the best reactions.
The method is not the secret.

Supra Gemini by John Guastaferro, to be found in Antinomy Vol. 11, is a wonderful self-working effect, with a killer ending.

Another vote here for overkill...it truly is devastatingly easing and very much "overkill"

Because making something disappear isn't enough; you have to bring it back. That's why every magic trick has a third act, the hardest part, the part we call "The Prestige".
