Hi, all.

As I mentioned in another topic, I'm an amateur coming back from a decade layoff from magic. I'm looking for a source for a nice cups and balls routine I can practice. I bought the DVD "30 Tricks & Tips with Cups & Balls," which was a great review for the slights I used to know (as well as an even larger number of ones I never learned!), but it doesn't go into a full fledged routine. Back in the day, I used to do this trick at birthday parties, but I just can't remember the overall routine. I've poked around in some of the books I own as well as online and the routines I've found are either much too complex for me right now or too simple to be satisfying for me.

Can anyone point me to a resource that will help me develop an intermediate routine for the Cups and Balls?

There is a good beginner's routine in Mark Wilson's Complete Course in Magic.
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.--Yeats

There are tons of published routines available, what books do you have in you magic library?
Michael Ammar offers great routines in his cups and balls videos and his book. The World's Greatest Magic videos on the c&b is good too.
Daryl has a video on c&b that is good as well.
And don't forget Vernon...

I just recently got my first set of Magic Makers cups and balls.. It comes with a DVD that teaches a nice, simple routine (not sure who the magician is in the video, but I'm sure someone here probably knows). It also teaches a couple of wand vanishes including the Vernon Wand Spin vanish. The routine is pretty basic, but effective and the set with the DVD is inexpensive.
