Its the same in it that it's a banknite using the structure of a 10 card poker deal. But there are also some minor differences.

Care to elaborate on this Kaliix?
PM me or move it downstairs if need be.
Thanks!!!


I'm similarly curious...

This looks good, but I'm not too much of a fan of the selection procedure. Are there any other good close up versions of Bank Night anyone knows of?

Someone who PM'ed me about the last two envelopes also mentioned the shuffle in the middle. I find that I just skip the shuffle by separating the four remaining envelopes, top two in one hand bottom two in the other. When the hands come back together, the top envelopes of both hands come together as the new top two envelopes of the stack, shuffle now unnecessary.

Does anyone know where I can find the same envelopes that John uses to perform this effect?

Thanks in advance and have a great day,

I've spent some time trying to find the right size envelope. I finally settled on ones that are just a bit bigger then playing cards and money. I feel like keeping the envelope size close to what a playing card is, will make them more natural to handle, hopefully... we'll see when they come in.

On latest lecture of Reel Magic, Boris has a very good routine using 10 card Poker deal. It can be adapted to play for any audience, it can be a game theme, unlimited potential. Great ideas as not all spectators know about winning poker hands etc.

Ok back to this. A good effect Here!

I love this - it is absolutely awesome. I too, do not want the spectator to feel like they 'lost.' So what I do is put business cards in 4 envelopes and on the back of them I put one letter: L, O, V, E. When they see all they have are business cards (the front side) and that I have the cash, there is a moment of disappointment. But then I turn the business cards over, put them in the right order and say: 'You're the better person, you chose love over money.'

I'm working on an Oscars theme....where the spectator wins 4 Oscars....I like how the opening of the envelopes tie in with this.

Thanks dyoung. It looks to me like the minor difference is that John Carey is performing it and not John Bannon.

I settled on these envelopes that are just a bit bigger than a playing card, have the long flap European design with a nice pre-cut slit to hold the flap closed. That slit holds them securely closed while allowing easy opening without glue.

I decided to try a routine out on my 15 year old daughter. In the envelopes are post-it notes where you lift off two post it notes, draw a 6 on the top one and write six underneath on the bottom. Make four double post-it 6's. Then make four 9's the same way, drawing 9 on the first post-it and writing nine on the second. Every time our intentionally sideways numbers would come out of the envelopes, I'd say mine was a 9 and her's was a 6. She was soooo, how do you know it's a six, you should put a line on the bottom, you should make it more clear, getting just a little more annoyed each time because I told her it was destiny that I always get the higher number. When I revealed the second post-it underneath had actual number written, she lost her ever loving mind and ranted for a good couple of minutes. I couldn't stop laughing. Don't know how this will play in the real world outside of family, but it was worth it just for that epic rant.

I love that idea -- beyond adding some humor to the routine also probably serves to further hide the method, since people will get more focused on the whole 6 v. 9 thing. Clever.

Hopefully this single picture of me performing it in my latest gig will spark some ideas for you, pay attention to the details to get a tip: https://www.instagram.com/p/BwaRmuVnoP1/

Those who are in the Codex Mentis group will receive further tips on this soon (it will only make sense for those who have it). Here's what my presentation is about:

Each envelope have a question. Participants shuffle the envelopes and make the choices of which one gets what envelope. No marked envelopes and no sleight of hand as in the original. In the end, thanks to an amulet that I lend to them, a participant will get only easy questions such as "what animal goes woof woof?" and the other participant will only get tough questions such as "Count to infinity... twice... and backwards". Plenty of funny moments... and the fact that this is about questions also helps me to set the audience to my Q&A act in the end. This has found a definitive place in my repertoire.
