Check the search function as this was discussed before. I like the version by Juan Tamariz. Ammar does it on ETMCM - I think he credits Lin Searle. You can also find versions by Bill Malone, Walt Lee, Curtis Cam, Chris Kenner, Bill Goodwin, Ascanio, Eugene Burger, JJ Sanvert, Jay Sankey, John Mendoza, Mike Powers, Darwin Ortiz, Marlo, Michael Skinner, David Solomon, Allan Ackerman, Stephen Minch, Roy Walton, Guy Hollingworth, Aldo Colombini, Giovonni Livera, and Woody Aragon. I believe it's also in Card College.....

I like Sankey's version. He teaches in a couple of his videos I believe but it was also on his Penguin Lecture.

Gene Maze showed me that one can count two cards as more. That seemed a natural fit for the trick to get two cards to vanish. Wanting to get the most from the method... A simple switch later and the cannibals turn on themselves to leave three, then two. Pulling them apart before things get too scary the remaining cannibals are changed into the selections.
The audience gets the most magic and I get to practice the count... And consistent card handling.

PS thirty years later considering overhand grip for the counts to avoid the grip changes for their packet switches... Always room for improvement.

I'm not generally a fan of the plot, but I absolutely love Curtis Kam's version.

You have to see Bill Goodwin's routine to believe it! Amazing!

For me it's Paul Harris' Vacuum Cleaner Cards in Art of Astonishment.

I do Darwin Ortiz's version, which was largely based on Mike Power's.

Bill Goodwin's version is very hard to find. It is in one of his lecture notes (lecture 1988) and also in two part in the Crimp ( a streamline version). it is a very artistic version where you seemingly put three cards in between the four Kings and they disappear one at a times. Roberto Giobbi's version in Card College Three is very good. J.K. Hartman has a version that was inspired by the Goodwin's version in his last book Card Dodgery.

Ortiz has a nice version (with cancelling methods principle) in his book Scams & Fantasies with cards. However, I was never a fan of reproducing the eaten cards, so I just omit that part Smile

Cannibal Cards is a great trick. I enjoyed Michael Ammar's presentation on ETMCM Volume 1. I love his comedic timing when he does the final "burp" of the cannibals. I like to do Cannibal Cards in combination with The Acrobatic Aces (where I substitute Kings for the Aces). I begin with The Acrobatic Aces in order to introduce the "cannibals" by saying that all one must do is dangle some "bait" in the air and the cannibals will leap out and devour it. The Piet Forton Flip-Over Change used in The Acrobatic Aces provides a great visual of this.

It's funny how an effect evolves. I think vacuum cleaner cards has a basic kind of cannibal cards idea, just with variations and a different plot. Ammar performs both cannibal cards and vacuum cleaner cards; so its good to see the contrast in handlings and moves. But the essence is hiding the hungry cards (and their victims) and then making them reappear, whether its slitting the kings bellies open or finding the dirt inside the vacuum cleaner. David Regal performs his own 'joker works overtime' and he mentions that the basic effect is red hot mama ... but he adds so many different ideas that it becomes an entirely different effect. To be honest, I also hadn't considered the vaccum cleaner cards as a cannibal cards effect until Vlad posted it ... but yeah it is! But its ALSO a new effect. Lynn

Joel Givens has a great Cannibal Cards routine! It is in his book Session. I really love the ending of the effect.
Roberto Giobbi's version in Card College is also very good.

I just learned JJ Sanvert's version of the Cannibal Cards and like the ending however I find the whole routine is a little too long for the normal audiences. does any one else here does this routine too?
