I'm only aware of Ammar's version. It's a pretty fun routine and gets some good reactions. Fun for kids also.
The method is not the secret.

As mentioned above, Bill Goodwin's version in his "1988 Lecture Notes" is worth checking out. You end clean!

My magic buddy, Mike Smith, taught me the moves for the Cannibal Kings the night before I left for the Niagara Comedy Magic Seminar this past April. As I arrived a day prior to the conference, I had some time on my hands and wrote a fun script/patter that works really well for me. I've posted the script on my website (without a description of the moves). Anyone is free to use it if they like it and it fits their personality. Go to http://www.medicine-in-motion.com/magic.htm and look at the bottom right corner of my magic scrapbook page. [For the record, I've never seen any other version of this routine aside from what Mike showed me.]

Incidentally, I precede Cannibal Kings with my original "voodoo version" of a trick that Bob Elliott taught me (it was the first trick that he learned). I've posted that there as well. Have fun!

I STILL do that trick.

SEY

This is one of my favorite tricks, and one of the most I worked on. I tried to find a justification for putting the final ace reversed, then show it on top .. etc.

I tried to work out another method, but the original is still the most direct with no fumbling with extra moves ..

The magic effect is timeless, but the patter??? Sooo... updating, I usually talk about 4 imperialist leaders (eg Bush) gobbling up smaller nations. I love this trick, though. It's so different than other card tricks!

There is nothing at all wrong with the presentation. Is it a little dated? Maybe...but I seem to remember seeing photos on MSN recently of a tribe that was JUST discovered near Peru. If you wanted to update the presentation, that might be the way to go.

Also, we're all entitled to our opinions here, but I'm really getting sick of all the Bush slams. I'm not too crazy about what the guy's doing either, but this isn't really the place. Not to mention, calling Bush an "Imperialist" is like calling Sadam Hussein a "humanitarian".

Imperialism - the policy of extending the rule or authority of an empire or nation over foreign countries, or of acquiring and holding colonies and dependencies.

Another vote for Mr. Ortiz's, from "Scams and Fantasies." This is a great routine. He's also got a great presentation for it.

No one's mentioned Walt Lee's 'Canibal Card' act... so I will/have.

Another to add to the llist is 'Missionarys' Revenge' from the book John Verse 2 which has the 3rd Missionary eating the Cannibals!

Any word yet if this newly "discovered" tribe practices canibalism?
I can't imagine that even in this day and age one could be thin skinned about practicing canibalism.
"Thin skinned" mmmmmm.... crispy thin skinned...mouth watering....
Anyway.

Thanks for all of the input everyone. I will go back and reread the Ortiz and Mendoza versions. How would I go about finding a copy of Bill Goodwin's 1988 Lecture notes?

Thanks again,

I only recently purchased Book of John II, and haven't yet explored much of it. Thanks for the "heads up," Neal!

I don't think that the cannibal card effect needs "updated" at all. First, the idea of "cannibal" is best left to talking about the ancient past. Further, with the current "Indiana Jones" movie, talking about a WW2 story fits right in. Finally, it's such a great visual you would have to have the patter of Henry Kissinger to flub it up... Jim

It should be noted that Jon Racherbaumer, in his 1976 book, The Ascanio Spread, credits Pete Biro with an Ascanio spread version of the Cannibal Cards, although he says that Pete disclaims it. It looks as though Pete was the originator of some the patter and funny moves that have filtered down to us.

Best regards,
Glenn Godsey

Don't forget to mention Sanvert's version of Cannibal Card

It has surprise ending. Can be found in his DVD Volume 2

Thanks

Another vote for the routine from Ortiz. I especially like the 2nd phase with the card going into the middle of the cannibals, then without any moves the packet is spread to show the selection gone. And I feel the 2nd and 3rd phase just nicely cancels out any thoughts of a method for the spectator. Great sequence.

The credit for this very clever handling and construction goes to Mike Powers, as I mentioned in my book. My contribution was primarily in the final phase where the selected cards are reproduced. Anyone who likes my routine should also check out Mike’s version cited earlier.

Sincerely,
Darwin Ortiz

Hi,

Ortiz version is one of the best structured. The final addition reproducing the card is a very nice touch as people always check before where are the cards!

I also love Tamariz' presentation and Chris Kenner version
