See "The Ambitious Stranger" on page 386 of "Gerald Deutsch's Perverse Magic: The First Sixteen Years (and on the Perverse Magic thread of The Genii Forum March 1, 2017.)

'Too many cards' from the complete works of Derek Dingle is brilliant

I like The Ambitious Card by Harry Lorayne
And Seven-Up by Larry Jennings.

I will check out Lorayne's The Ambitious Card. I think I have that one in a book.

I strongly recommend Darwin Ortiz wonderful routine: Darwin´s Ambitious Card from his fantastic book: Scams & Fantasies with Cards (2002), page 148.
I get very strong reactions from this routine, a real worker in the real world.

David Regal’s puppy trick in Approaching Magic is a fun ambitious card routine.

Do you use the exact methods? Darwin's shift in particular?

I'm really starting to love David Solomon's 4 phase routine.

Mullica’s Nightmare from Matthew Wright's DVD "The Unusual Suspect"

I agree with Ed's recommendation. There's more interaction with the participant in Vernon's routine than there is in most of the contemporary ambitious card sequences I've seen. Here is a good demonstration of the routine as described in Stars of Magic (by a magician called Shanla):



I'd also recommend you pick up a copy of Daryl's Ambitious Card Omnibus, which has been recently republished by Penguin Magic. This book is written by one of the very best authors in magic (Stephen Minch). It was first released in 1987 and covers much of the material from Daryl's Ambitious Card DVD. For my money, Daryl was the best teacher of this classic. I'd recommend you pick up his DVD along with the book if you can.

I agree 100% here.
Not only does Daryl write up his routine and ideas for sequences....but his thorough write up of all the various moves is literally a course in Card Magic itself. I've used the book not only for A.C.R. but for sleights to be used for other routines. Ambitious Card Omnibus = Fave book.
