Three for Two in Simply Simon by Aronson. Hands off, three almost-free choices. The part that's fun as a magician fooler is a Balducci force with no second cut deeper. Drives 'em crazy.

Sorry, I guess there's somewhat of a setup for the 3 I just mentioned. Also, the Mastermind deck (I know- gimmicks) is such a killer self worker and the spectator never wants to see the cards because they look at the entire deck the whole time.

A go to for me that has been pure gold is Simon Aronson's "Self Control" concept and the effect "Self Control Lie Speller" from the Aronson Approach. It's utterly fair and they do everything from a shuffled deck. A lot of impossible mentalism with cards is possible just with that one concept.

Hello everyone ,

I have often been told that self working card tricks with no gimmicks are dull, repetitive and only for hobbyists or newbies and not real workers.

Personally I have never prescribed to this general point of view . However the proof is in the pudding as they say and so I put together am effect which met the following criteria .

Borrowed shuffled deck
No gimmicks
No manipulation to the cards I.e nail nicks , cri*ps etc
Another vote for The Crusade. It really is an amazing effect. Totally worth the money. Also, U. F. Grant's Nu Way Out Of This World is a great, sleight free, completely impromptu version o
No stooging or duality
No set up
No memorisation
Spectators can burn your hands
Pretty much impossible to back track


The above are the standard criteria met but I wanted to set a higher bar

That leaves a long lasting impression on the audience
When asked for a repeat performance it can be done with no fear of the audience becoming any the wiser as to how the impossible is done
An effect good enough for a pro to put in their working repertoire

The effect in question is "The Crusade " and already has a 7 page thread in the latest and greatest with numerous reviews and testimonials which show an ungimmcked self worker can stand equal to a sleight of hand effect

What I did no expect was for the effect to be doing so well on the best magic release of 2013 .

Long live the self worker !!!

Andrew

Another vote for The Crusade. It really is an amazing effect. Totally worth the money. Also, U. F. Grant's Nu Way Out Of This World is a great, sleight free, completely impromptu out of this world. Again, totally worth the money (only $3.00!!!).

I've recently been intrigued with some of the work of the mathemagician Colm Mulcahy. "Three Scoops Ice Cream" uses his Low Down Triple Dealing shuffle. Restore a deck to NDO with four of these shuffles using two numbers called out by specs (Low Down Double Dealing). Google "Card Colm" to see the methods and discussion ala Martin Gardiner style.

Good one, Magicfish!

As for myself, I can perform a pretty mind-boggling OOTW with someone else's shuffled deck.

Paul Wilson's "Con Cam Coincidencia" has been recommended numerous times in this thread.

Shin Lim performed this routine on the final episode of America's Got Talent last year, and he also performed it shortly afterwards on Ellen.

Here are clips of both his "Con Cam Coincidencia" performances:

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.


Seconded.
Use the FORCE Luke.
