John Scarne had a book in the 50's I think. It was chock full of tricks that were self-working. I think it was called Scarne on Cards.
Anybody familiar with it?


Scarne on Card Tricks was the first card trick book I consulted as a boy. The original Signet paperback is long gone, but Dover, with publishes all the Fulves stuff, has reprinted it and it is easily and inexpensively obtained. A lot of the tricks therein I believe turn up in some form in more recent works, albeit in more modern dress.

It's a cool book and not a complete dinosaur. I am surprised it doesn't get much mention here.

John Bannon has an effect "A view To A 'Skill" based on this effect.

Bannon eliminates the "moves" that you need to do the James version according to the book High Caliber. (it is originally from "Open and Notorious" 2009. Although this is a long (some might say drawn out) effect, It is by far one of my favorite effects in the new book. I really enjoy performing it for family and friends in a non formal setting.

I've done one for 30 years I call Three Card Prediction. I think it's a Maurice Fogel effect, but I don't have a source. I originally learned the routine at a magic club 'Teach A Trick' night. The nice thing is that it can be done with literally any deck of cards. Rook, UNO, Old Maid, Go Fish, Flash Cards, etc. PM me and I'll describe it if you are interested.

Cheapskate that I am, I balked at splurging twelve bucks on a single trick, especially given my hobbyist status and the fact that I usually only show tricks to single person at a time and C3 seems to need three volunteers. Ended you giving it a shot. It is perfectly doable, if not as powerful, with one or two specs. With just one, the magician can easily contrive for the spec to produce his chosen card while the magician reveals the most closely related card (e.g., spec's selection is QS, magician produces QC). With two volunteers you can just have everyone dealing from three "hands," with the spec producing his selection, the magician producing the cross suit of same colour, and the other spec producing a same-valued card in one of the two remaining suits. Or with two specs you can do it bridge-style with the fourth hand as dummy.

Great effect, simple in principle, and a test of the performer's style and presence. One really has to really emphasize, in deed more that words, that the cards have been severally and throughly shuffled and the selection lost.

Ricky jay did jon racherbaumer's NO JONAH POKER deal on the tonight show for jimmy fallon.it's available from lybrary.com
God's grace rocks! It makes a good cups and balls routine look pretty boring in comparison.

My favorites are Untouched by Daryl and Free Will, it's not fully self working but the simple but smart and invisible sleight takes place before the effect even has begun to the spectators. The rest is is self working and hits VERY hard and gets great reactions. Recommended! - http://www.lybrary.com/free-will-p-476988.html
