I love 'Travelling Man' by Roy Walton. It can be found in 'the Complete Walton Vol 2'. A brilliant effect!

My favorite packet trick is from:
The Art of Close-Up Magic by Lewis Ganson vol. 1 book. It's a Oil and Water Routine.
Here's a vid of the routine.
Enjoy

You can do the exact routine of Color Monte, using a joker, a red queen, and the Ace of Spades as the kicker finale.

Guys, Check out the Goldstein/Maven effect Very Good Hand in Card Cavalcade IV. It's a quick, easy, three-stage ambitious card effect, with an eye-popping finish in which all the cards change. John

Sohaib and ejohn,
Thanks, glad you liked it. The original used red and blue backs so it was a packet trick you brought around with you. I have never been a big fan of pulling out packet routines, so I do it from a deck instead. Hope you know what I mean.
Again thanks for taking the time to view and comment.

I'm particularly a fan of Guy Hollingworth's oil and water, and twisting the aces, I like the visuals. I also enjoy "Wicked!" (the last effect in Bannon's Mega Wave). I've changed the patter to suite my style, but it is a great little effect.

Like to add another one from Aldo Colombini called The Aces are Gone Effect 4 black cards 4 red cards and 4 aces are mixed when counted again the 4 aces have vanished you then mix the red and black and the red cards vanish leaving the 4 aces video on You Tube can be found in Aldo's book or e-book Direct Hits.
kind of like Oil and Queens.

Best

What patter line do you use when you do Color Monty with the queen joker & the ace?
Thanks George

George,

I've been using Joker(s), QH and AS for quite a while now. My patter is generally relaying a story that happened to me when I got swindled by a street performer.

(As an aside, when retelling a story this way it dispenses with the performer saying "so where do you think it is now?" kind of patter. Instead, you can say "He asked me where it was and I said 'The bottom card', but I was wrong!" In othe words it removes the idea of the spectator getting duped because the story is about how the performer himself was duped).

In any event, the basic script is about how in life you usually end up on the short end of the stick (Jokers), but every once in a while you find success (AS). Then when you finally reveal the QH at the end, talk about how the rarest thing of all is true love.

It's not as corny as it reads. At least I certainly hope not. Smile

I've been on a bit of a Larry Jennings kick lately as I'm re-reading the Classic Magic of Larry Jennings. Right now I'm liking the Maestro's poker demonstration, royal twist, uniflection, ambitious classic and open travelers.

I don't know the name of the effect, or who it's by, but there is an effect that uses the four aces, and you show the spectator that you can place the ace of spades and ace of clubs on the table, and make them switch places with the other aces in your hand

Sounds like either Doc Daley's Last Trick or Eddie Fecters(sp) Be Honest What is It.

Heres the packet tricks that use cards from a normal deck that I'm really loving doing:

Reswindled - Caleb Wiles

Alysson,

I'm glad you like Reswindled. For those who want to see the routine in action, there's a video at http://calebwiles.blogspot.com/2010/08/performing-reswindled-paul-harris.html. You can also see Lu Chen's performance of it on Taiwanese TV at http://calebwiles.blogspot.com/2009/07/r......-tv.html

As far as other packet tricks from a normal deck, I would have to say that Darwin Ortiz's Jumping Gemini, John G's Double Monte, and Steve Beam's Back to Aces are a few of my favorites.
