Topic: The Orniment Trick?
Message: Posted by: p0nt00ns (Dec 12, 2008 07:05PM)
Hello everybody, was hoping someone could help me tell me the name or point me to a dealer that sells this trick, it is Xmas time and would like to put a routine together and be able to do this for the holidays. The effect as I saw it was with Red and Green (Xmas Colors) Orniments and 2 partisipants take turns taking orniments out of the basket or orniments, however this is an Odd number so obviously 1 of the spectators gets an extra. The Magic takes place and then the assistants take turns pulling pairs of orniments out of their respective bag and Abracadabra, they each have an = amount of pairs of orniments, the odd orniment is gone. I can not seem to find this anywhere, was hoping someone could help me with the name of this trick and where I might be able to purchase this.

Thank You!

Sounds like the Piano Trick principle. I don't see why it has to be done with cards- could be done with any objects. Hmmmm.....

[/quote] Look for the book entitled "The Royal Road To Card Magic" by Jean Hugard and Frederick Braue. The Piano Trick is described in there. BTW pOntOOns, the correct spelling is ORNAMENTS.

Cardamagically,
