I Know only "Devastation" and "4,5,6 Paket Trick" which seems similar. Are they any other ones that are amazing and requiered NO SETUP or any other Gimmicks or Sleights of Hand. Or Card Tricks which are completely handled by the Spectator ?

Thank you for your Attention !

The clear winner here is Steve Beam and his volumes of books. Like them or not, there's tons of effects to choose from.

One of my favorites is Quadruple Prediction.

Con Cam Coincindencia by Paul Wilson has been one of my favorite self working tricks since I first saw him do it a few years ago

Check out "Rainman" by Joseph Barry on his Inscrutable 2 Disc set. You can begin the effect by using two unopened decks if you wish.

Impossible by Larry Jennings, trust me. Smile

Overkill by Paul Harris - again please trust me.

Also, the moves are elementary, so check out Harry Lorayne's Guess Quotient in Best of Friends III

If you can Charlier Cut, also check out Harry Lorayne's Take Me to Your Leader.

I will also add my voice to the Steve Beam series. These are phenomenal. Now, I will give you a sweet tip that will save you money if you can't get the Beam books at present. Go to Aldo Colombini's site (also FULL of great "self-workers") and snag the e-book called Killer Koncepts. What this is a an e-book of effects based upon Steven Beam's Killer Count from v.5 of Semi-Automatic Card Tricks. With this count, which is EASY, you can do crazy things like dead on estimation, and, there are two BEAUTIFUL variants of Charlie Miller's classic Dunbury Delusion. The e-book is 10 USD - like everything else on Aldo's site, so shop around and I PROMISE you will be happy.

Also, the Karl Fulves series of Self Working Card Tricks books are crammed with gems. Big Blind Media released a DVD that I have heard is a phenomenal collection of self-workers.

Lastly, don't dismiss the classics and here I am referring to The Encyclopedia of Card Tricks. PILES of self workers with no setups. In fact, the very first effect in the book "Twin Souls" by the great Al Baker is well worth the price of the book.

Namaste,
Vlad

This is a phenomenal effect. For some, it might take a little (very little) practice to be able to perform it smoothly, but, it is well worth the minimal effort required.

(I love effects where the method is laid right out in the open, seen by the spectators but never suspected (or recognized as such) by them.)

Mike

P.S. BTW, the two unopened decks mentioned by Joemy, above, can be purchased by a spectator and brought to the performance by that spectator and then opened during the performance by the spectator. What you see is what you (and the audience) gets.
Magic is a vanishing Art.

My response to "show me something" is usually Fogel's triple. So simple, even I can sell it. Smile

Just a plea for future posters, Can you please stop posting asking about the "BEST" etc...
It doesn't exist. Everyone has a different opinion and therefore it comes down to personal taste.
A better way to word it is to ask about Good or Practical methods/tricks regarding something.

Throw me a deck of shuffled cards and I will do impromptu wonders with Simon Aronson's 'Undo Influence' principle (think in terms of his 'Prior Commitment').

The basic principle itself is very adaptable.You can choose to use a prediction or not as the circumstances allow.

For example one could have a card cut to by any spectator who is celebrating a birthday, have it buried in the middle of the deck and then have it miraculously appear in the position designated by their age.

Or alternatively perhaps use a tarot deck and follow a "Power of 13" theme. One might have the spectator cut to a card only to have it somehow appear in the thirteenth position.You would achieve this through having the spectator openly turn over (face up) the 13th and 26th (26=13+13 you exclaim) cards which are to represent "the past and the future". Then have them cut a third of the deck (1/3=13 modified you exclaim).Then do the necessary... In the process of taking the two face up cards out of the deck simply return one ("The card representing the past") to the bottom of deck and place the remaining card ("The card representing the future") to the top of deck.

If you are familiar with this principle you will be able to experiment and see what I mean.

WOW! All the while I thought that this effect used one or more gimmicks. This is great news that this effect can be performed impromptu and uses no gimmicks. I'm in.
