The Invisible Deck always seems to floor them. Did it for my Wife for the first time (haven't used it in years) and she was stunned.

Smoke - Derren Brown

A deck of cards is ribbon spread along the table, so an audience member can catch a glimpse of one of its faces. This mental selection is never said out loud, and yet the magician can slowly divine the spectator's private thoughts.

To celebrate the accomplishment, the performer hands out cigars and cigarettes, as he smokes on a cig, himself. As an afterthought, he points out that the thought-of selection had vanished from the cards the moment the spectator supposedly thought of it.

As the spectator examines the deck, the magician coughs furiously-- his cigarette suddenly transforms into the spectator's rolled up selection!

LOADED - RT Showmann

This is a personal effect I came up with independently. A card is randomly chosen from the deck, and signed across its face and back. Although the ink does not smear, the magician is able to visually rub the spectator's signature from the back of the card! It is seen to have totally changed altogether, and the signed, chosen card is found within the spectator's own wallet.

Alternatively, the signed card can vanish straight off the spectator's own palm and be found in any impossible location. Can be adapted to a Torn and Restored plot as well. Signed selection appears in the spectator's wallet without any palming, pickpocketing, gimmicks, or stooges.

I can't believe this thread is still going strong. Does that say something about magicians?

As far as reactions go, anything IN their hands seems to get a great WTF response!

I smoked a joint, a real joint (but didn't inhale) using Fearsons floating cig hook up

So this is what it looked like, I put the joint in my mouth and sparked it up then put it on my hands and the joint levitated and was floating then did the routine and flew through a hooped forum by my hands, then everyone just totally freaked out when the joint floated up into my mouth and I passed it for examination and for their personall use .

The reactions I got, made me feel like a devil Smile

If you don't have it, you should get it for sure, I bought it at $20, now the price is only $5, or you can win the trick at my website contest page

Someone mentioned an Out of this World with a shuffled deck, which may be the effect that has truly freaked out my specators.

It's Galaxy by Paul Harris. You (or the spectator if he/she can do it well) can shuffle the deck and the deck is in their hands the entire their mind.

I've had people tell me they've felt very uncomfortable and numb after that trick as they couldn't comprehend how it could happen.

Many others tricks, I think, will get a jaw to drop if it's presented correctly. Galaxy, on the other hand, creates the jaw dropping effect, plus adds a strong dose of uncomfortable freak out.

Oh, the joy of creating irrationality.

I had forgotten this effect I used to do:

About 20 years ago, Doug Henning did a Rubik's Cube effect on one of his TV specials where he twisted the cube up into a mess and then he threw it into the air, caught it and it was solved!! This was a close-up magic effect and only used one cube. No switches, No topit. Just the one cube.

Now THAT had people checking their reality.

The effect you are talking about is called "Enchanted Cube," and is still available through Hank Lee's.

I saw the Doug Henning T.V. special years ago, too (gadzooks! We're revealing our age here!) Anyways, I remember when he tossed it up they accented the moment with a little light chimes sound, and it was perfect. Then when it came down, he caught casually caught it with one hand, and smiled that beautiful Henning smile.

The moment was pure magic for me, and lives in my memory as one of the most magical things he has ever done. I can still close my eyes and see it.

Anyways, I purchased the trick from Hank, and have spent years perfecting that "simple" trick.

It is simple, and yet to do it with confidence has really taken a chunk out of my life. It's a paradox, to be sure.

I sometimes use this effect as an opener in my show. It's simple and beautiful.
The difficult must become easy, the easy beautiful and the beautiful magical.

NFW when it works.


I also get the most consistently startled reaction from Bill in the Lemon when done properly. I use the old Berland method of loading and it has never failed me and never been discovered.

I find that the mulitplying foam bunnies get a suprsing reaction from people. Guys or girls, no matter what gender, go wild over it. And i....simply can't believe it. I would think something like I dunno, levitations and stuff like that would make people go wild. But $2.99 bunnies!! Good Stuff
You think that trick was good? you should see what i can do with my...............
