I'd like to ad another big "Thank You" for this comprehensive and profound post! I only recently discovered that so many really good self-working card tricks are out there by diving into Mr. Bannon's excellent "Move Zero" series. I really appreciate to learn that there are many more self-working tricks from other magicians to discover.

Yes, Ryan's "Super Strong Super Simple" video is terrific; I also highly recommend it.

Nice thread Ender!

I'll second the kudos for Ryan's "Super Strong Super Simple." I got it on sale awhile back and was my intro to Ryan's magic. A fan thereafter.

Also, I highly recommend Card College Light -- which I just purchased this month at our magic fellowship. I had previously "resisted" buying it as I already had a pretty decent library of self-workers -- many that Ender has listed. But I was immediately pleased with the first routine. It is the construction of the routines that is the high light of the book. (so far I've digested the first two routines).

The first routine starts with a nice startling effect where you find the cards selected by two spectators in a well scripted and entertaining sequence of actions that make the location of the cards increasingly impossible! After revealing the two cards, you are in position to immediately perform an effortless and squeaky clean two person version of "OOTW!" To use an overused phrase, this duet of two effects is close to worth the price of the book. Looking forward to digesting the rest of the book!

Good comments Phil - thanks for sharing.

I'm glad you're enjoying Giobbi's Card College Light. The way he constructs routines with a strong set is really valuable.

The extended series of shuffles makes the outcome seem thoroughly impossible, especially because it involves the spectator doing the shuffling

I'll second that! Bought Stealth as soon as it was released. It's a fooler.

I pulled out my copy of Liam Montier's "Essential Card Magic Toolbox" DVD set yesterday to check some forces on the "Forces Project" DVD and remembered that there are effects on each DVD! From that "re-discovery" I'll add Maurice Fogel's "Triple Prediction" to the list. I'm pretty sure I knew this trick in my youth and forgot all about it. It is an excellent self working trick that can be performed impromptu when someone asks you to do a trick on a moments notice and hands you their shuffled deck. Only needs one deck and is thus more versatile than the venerable two deck "Do as I Do." I showed it to the Mrs. It elicited a "That's impossible!" She said add it to her list of fav's !
