One can always do some larger/parlor style effects for more than one table at once... Cut and restored rope; TT magic; Thumbcuffs etc
This still allows the intimacy of the strolling by reaching more spectators at once.


Precisely what I was thinking. Get chunks of tables at a time to watch. that's why the Any Signed Card To Any Wallet (UCCU) works nice here. I have a spectator choose/sign a card at one table .. then I go 1 or 2 tables down and reveal their card in an other spec's wallet (at the other table). That way Im involving several tables at once. What would you recommend for a nice TT effect?

There are so many things one can do with a TT... Vanishing salt... appearing/vanishing silk... A lit match vanish... Vanishing and reappearing water... I do not know your style of performing, so to give a good recommendation is difficult. I do a vanishing cigarette also I like to do Richard Osterlind's 'Sweeter and Lower' from 'Volume Three - Assorted Mysteries' of his MIND MYSTERIES DVD set.

There are books and DVDs about the versatility and their uses. Learn how to use one properly and you will never leave home without it.

If you're still using the invisible deck for walk around only check out Bill Malone's Standing Ovation Invisible Deck routine! It's amazing!

Yep! Definitely busting out the TT. Good ideas! Ill check out Malone's Standing Ovation Invisible Deck routine. Been looking for an "Invisible deck on steroids" routine.

For events that have a guest of honor I do Ammar's Ultimate Coverage Insurance Policy trick. Ends with a personalized giveaway at the end of the show. Packs small and plays huge.

TheMag1cian,
DON'T do Bill Malones Invisible Deck routine. I've had the pleasure of meeting Bill and watching him perform this routine in the flesh. Bill is Bill and know one can do this routine justice. If need be, watch the routine in order to learn how to routine a powerful effect with minimal props, but don't try to use this routine as is. Good Luck.

Thanks for the heads up! Some effects you just cant replicate. I know what you mean. If its all personality then Ill find something else or find my own way of working it. Thanks

If you have to do 30 minutes of table magic do what I do:MISER'S DREAM. I always open with the misers dream when I do table magic. you can walk around and make contact. see how people react. you can pass and produce some coins or do something more like a counflurry or a coins across. the idea behind this is that you can get to everybody in nearly 15 minutes or so. everybody is seeing you NAD HEARING YOU. it is flexible, you can stop and do the paper to money at that table. the coins that are hitting the bucket make enough noise to the people to hear that you are working.

alternative would be a paper bag and produce spongeballs a la misers dream. you don't have the noise factor.

I recommend Johnny Ace Palmers presentation of the invisible deck. If the crowd is spread out in many rooms or different groups you can two tricks over and over again for the strolling part.
