Any more information on these? I mean is the last one Peter Kane's Gypsy Curse? It it Peter Kane's Jazz Aces or someone else's variant (there are quite a few). Never heard of The Devil's Revenge, where can that be found/who created it?

Long and great thread! My favorites.

For adults: Virginia City Hustle

For children: Shenanigans (unfortunately, out of print and hard to find)

Both start and end clean, are full routines, and have great endings.

I have had more "holy s***'s" from the four cards switching back then from any other card effect.


I always preferred the similar "Boomerang" by Walt Maddison. Here's an old video clip.

You also get a similar response when all the picture cards jump together in Peter Duffie's "Point Blank Assembly" (link below) though neither have been mentioned in this thread yet, I don't think.

Great performances Paul, thanks for sharing.

With cards taken from a deck it's hard to beat Dr Daley's Last Trick, imho.

With a separate packet of cards three spring to mind: B'wave; Royal Scam; and the classic 3-card Monte Smile

This is what I usually carry for packet tricks (My preference will vary on the audience):

ACE (R.Sanders)
The Rhythm Twins (R.Benatar)
Poker Test 2.0 (E.Casey)
B'Wave (M.Maven)
Ugly Duckling (A.Colombini) - For kids

Colour Monte is a great one, really love it. I love performing Dr Daley's Last trick just because it nice and quick, and if the audience loves it I can perform twisting the aces

I am not sure if this is the same "Devil's Revenge", but this is the one I perform. It is basically "The Homing Card". I did not invent the trick (obviously), nor did I write the story, but I may be the first to apply it to Tarot cards.

If you are interested in more Tarot card packet trick variations, you might want to check Spellbinder's "The Invisible Tarot" which consists of 13 different tricks you can perform with Tarot cards, and is found as Book Two in the Spooky Shop of Little Horrors on The Magic Nook.

Lots of tricks could be nominated for best packet trick of all time. But strong contenders would certainly be Color Monte, and B'Wave. They're powerful and popular.

The Book of Thoth by Stephen Minch is the best book devoted to Tarot card magic.

I absolutely love Come Together (Jerry Sadowitz) and Jazz Aces. For Gaffed packets I enjoy many ( poker players nightmare, any queen called for etc), but, I mainly lean towards Elmsley etc over gaffed recently.

Twisting the Aces
Dr. Daley's Last Trick
&
this one: (Mr. Roy Walton's classic) ((Wasn't aware, until I (just) read Mr. Bill Hegbli's post, 05/13, on Mr. Howard Schwarzman's "Leather Impact."
After reading it, I tracked down the leather wallets, from a dealer, Thank You, Mr. Hegbli! Smile ))
