Does anyone here know of, or do any routines/effects that employ GIANT cards... any size bigger than the normal jumbo cards? I know about the Giant B'Wave, and I perform that one myself. Any suggestions on regular/normal card effects that can be done with GIANT cards?

Do you know of an effect called "Will the Cards Match". You could use two volunteers and get them to match mate cards. I'm sure many self workers could be done with BIG cards.

The trick David Williamson does with four cards that he can turn over all four but the spectators can't might work with jumbo cards.

Some time ago I experimented with a Larry Becker routine with the jumbo cards called Hypnotic from his Stunner's Plus book. It's a poker based routine that is close to Ortiz's Mexican Poker. It uses 10 cards and employs the j**** principle. In fact, you predict what kind of poker hand you will end up with as the climax to the routine.
Self concept is destiny..

I'm having Neil Lester make me a set of Sidewalk Shuffle cards made that are giant sized--150% the size of jumbo cards.

Janus - Thanks for that tip. I don't have the "Stunners Plus" book, so I'm not familiar with the "Hypnotic" routine. Perhaps I'll get to look it up in the future.

Donal - Geez! So your "Sidewalk Shuffle" turns into the "Interstate Highway Shuffle"! Sounds great to me. I'm not familiar with Neil Lester... can you provide a link?

Thanks!

Thanks, Donal!

More cards, decks and replacement cards than I can shake a wand at. Ha!
