Hello peapole I have read a few a few threads on the forum about different jumbo 3 card monte props the mechanical versions. There are 2 versions which seem good the Dave Powell king monte and the to Ton Onosaka Giant monte. What are the pros and cons to each version? How close can the spectators be whitout any risk of flashing? Is lightning an issue? I appriciate the help.

Hi tecumilic

I can't speak to Dave Powell's Jumbo apparatus with the Bicycle backs (which seems like a very desirable feature) because I've never handled one nor have I seen a set in live performance.

However, we do have two sets of the Ton Onosaka version and can unequivocally state it is a wonderful set that is reliable and easy to perform AND gets an enthusiastic response to the effect from all audiences. (The second set is a back-up. No, it's not for sale Smile.

Lighting, angles, etc. don't seem to be an issue.
The audience can be close...

Could you do the effect under the same conditions as this video but in real life?

I use a variation of Monte effects mainly Harry Anderson Monarch Monte for corporate shows and King Monte effect you mention for shows I need a few minutes of magic to music, I use a stand and some catchy music etc..always plays well. The key to the king monte is not to do lots of changes with the cards -King to Queen etc, most performers do 3-4 changes -I do 2 and the effect plays much stronger,I also use a stand for the cards..

With the arrival of home computers connected to photo quality printers, the need for the mechanical version of the Three Card Monte can be replaced by a variety of Montes for stage use. The advantage is that you can print the necessary cards yourself on your home computer using high quality glossy photo paper in your printer. Templates are provided with our Magic Nook e-Book instructions for making and perorming the larger montes which can be found in The Wizards' Journal # 17 - "Jumbo Ultimate Monte and Stand" and "Jumbo Dutch Looper', Wizards, "Ace Chaser" in WizJ #21, "Three Card Trick (with Four Cards)" in WizJ #22, "NEW Ace Chaser" and "Alice's Wonderland Monte" in WizJ #33, an adult version, "King of Clubs" in WizJ #30 along with a children's version "Threesies", ending with "Mumbo Jumbo Monte" with REALLY big cards from WizJ #37, and which uses NO GIMMICKED CARDS - just great big ones.
