There is so much fun and learning to be had with cards.
When I first started with magic, they never left my side.

Nowadays, I do not carry cards at all, impromptu.
Having mastered the sleights, it is to easy to perform miracles using other peoples cards when the opportunity presents itself in social gatherings.
As a performer, I do not carry cards table-hopping. However, the question "do I carry cards?". Yes, X-Act by Mark Mason and Premonition by Eddie Joseph if I am table performing.

As I've gotten more into cards with a monster commute (about 90 minutes via bus and train) I usually have a deck of cards with me in my back pack. I'll practice double lifts, top changes, and various cuts while waiting for train or bus (weather permitting).

I don't have a guard, and my cards get beat up; I go through about a deck a month (not as bad as Richard Turner who's said to have had a 3-4 pack a day habit). I've started buying bricks of cards at Costco.

I keep a deck of cards in my car. I must admit, when I am driving in LA, traffic lights are often long and a good time to practice various one handed cuts and other card flourishes.
Passes the time!

Good to see this thread is still going. 💪🏽😊

And guys, that’s how you get good this stuff…practice, practice, practice. 😁 That’s about how got to be a decent-at-best coin guy, walking through the streets of NYC with coins in my hands. 😁 And I found it’s about the same thing with cards, you gotta keep playing with them.

Learn what you need to know, and a regular deck of cards is all you’ll ever need. 😉 I just do a few card tricks of the many I’ve come to learn because I’m still a coin guy at heart. But, I’ve gotten a good handle on a few nice card tricks behind my spending some good time with cards. Played a lot with the tricky stuff too, but came to see how freeing it is to just find your way with better learning the moves and just using a regular deck. It has been a real tutelage and quite a bit of fun. 😁
