The Visitor (Jennings) and Immaculate Connection (Harris)

This is an interesting combo. Could you describe how these tricks go together in a little more detail?

John


Nothing very special, but these three tricks flow nicely:

Triumph

The Visitor (using the four Queens and the selected card from "Triumph")

Immaculate Connection (using the same selected card again and a pair of Queens from "The Visitor")

Im not sure if it counts as two tricks, but I like to present Stigmata in the following way. Spectator picks a card, then puts it back in. Deck is cut and spread, showing one card face up. I go 'And here we have your card', but alas, it's not the spectators card! At this point I go all red faced and 'oh dammit', and burn the card, and into Stigmata, it always gets fantastic reactions.

Curretly Twisting the Aces and Dr. Daley's Last Trick. Rachel.
I'd much rather regret something I've done than something I was too afraid to do. Have a great day. Rachel.

My favourite combos change so often, lately it's been:
1) Remembering the Future by Stewart James followed by
2) The Outcast (Peter Duffie's version for Open Prediction)

My patter theme is numerology.

This is pretty elementary, but you'd be surprised by reactions: "Do As I Do" followed by "Optical Prediction", Classic Magic of Lary Jennings

Hi,
I would have named some of those that are already listed, but I would like to had this combo:
Simon Lovell's Fingered Number 3 followed by Fingered Number 4 !!!
(Quite easy to remember!!!)
Ronnie Lemieux


Simon's stuff is really great. It's a shame people are more apt to get the heavily marketed, expensive tricks by teenagers that are basically stealing other's ideas and putting their name on them. The only thing missing from these re-hashed DVDs are the key details that really make them workers.

Note to beginning magicians: just because someone publishes a DVD and wears sunglasses and uses black tiger decks does not mean they invented the trick.

It usually means they are taking money from the real creator and leaving out all the necessary info from the DVD so they can use that time to go off and make the next DVD that leaves out all the good bits again.

Don't be fooled. Do the research. Buy the originals.
I've seen so many embarrassing version of old tricks that cost 10 times more than the originals. Save your money. Get the originals.

Love this thread! I like to do "red hot mama", followed by "for Marlo" (David Regal) using the odd red card which should be a queen! the patter: will the red queen meet with her sisters or stay with the lowly twos?

I also see several posts where the 2 trick combo was taken right off the Ammar ETMCM DVDs, in order. Not a bad way to begin but I'll bet that combo disappears for you over time.

The Twisting/Daley combo loved by this thread seems so weak to me. Twisting the Aces is a great trick, but most magicians know that it doesn't get anywhere near the response it deserves, and Daley's Last Trick doesn't really freak anyone out.

Wouldn't it be much more impressive, for example, to force a card and do Tommy Wonder's wild care routine with it, and then take one of the cards and do a card warp (Dr. Strangetrick) or a card through window with it?

Unfortunately, I have to disagree with you here. I think both are really great tricks. The concepts are really simple, yet they hit hard. If you can't get the responses they deserve, maybe try a different presentation? Smile Just my humble opinion.

However, can anyone choose this combo explain how you put these 2 together please? I just thought that one trick is about flipping card, yet another one is about transporting cards. How do you related these 2 tricks together?

Fingered #3 is quite a nice trick with very economical movements and a nice surprise ending.

Performing Card Warp first, then using the cards to make the gaff for JC Wagner's Torn & Restored Card.


What a great idea! I just read a thread on impromptu set ups for card warp. This little set is great for someone like me who loves impromptu stuf.

Colour changing deck (my adaptation of a Dave Forrest presentation) flowing into(my adaptation) James Prince's 'Mirrors'.
The mirror deck is used to 'explain' the colour changing effect, and seems to finish it off perfectly (in the spec's hands).
