I always have my ring on my finger so I do a version of the Ring Thing. There are other great ring moves that you can do as well. Lots of fun.

I have expanded my "Never Was" approach with coins to many other objects besides a handful of change.

1) dump a pile of M&Ms, sugar cubes, dice, marbles, other candy, etc on the table or tray.
2) pick one up in each hand.
3) display that each hand holds only one object.
4) a spectator chooses a closed hand.
5) the object in that hand has vanished, the other remains.

The key sleight is "SwayOn" and special techniques "One of Many" and "False Anticipation."

can be performed naked. For me, this allows for determining the level of interest in magic and easy shift to "stop" or some other effect.
It is powerful enough to establish me as a magician and establishes patterns of hand movements useful if I continue.
The draw back is that it establishes a standard difficult to follow.

I like Invisible Dice; no props required. However, it's best done for individuals who are at least 40 years old; younger than that often can't multiply a single digit by 5 without a calculator. Don't take this as a slam against their intelligence, they just never learned multiplication tables.

One more vote for "Ash to palm" or "Double Cross" as it is called nowadays Smile . It is awesome that you don't need cigarettes anymore , just a sharpie. You can do the "ash to palm" trick also with lipstick (Gregory Wilson).

Check out John Carneys "Swing Blade" . You only need a knife and a piece of paper.
