I want to produce 5 card castles.

Any ideas?

What size of castle do you have in mind? Do you want to produce 5 at the same time or separately?

Either way, I have the table top models by Owen's magic and a Abbott's. Then I have the Ken Brooke Model and the Uday card castle.

Just need some ideas.

Bill, I have produced as many as four card castles. Mine are all homemade with minor modifications, from the instructions found in John Fedko’s book “The Magic of John Fedko”.

I did the production following a card fountain routine; Cards were strewn all over the stage. I looked in dismay at the mess on the stage, bent to pick up some cards and lifted the card castle into place. Two of the Castle’s were pre set into place on the floor. The other two were stolen from a holder under my jacket toward the rear.

It looked pretty for a finale! It still left the stage a mess! But I only used it if I was not being followed by another act.

Please tell us about your act or routine that you are thinking of using these with? The act or the process for what you are doing may help us come up with logical means for which to accomplish this better for you.

In my square circle routine, I make a deck of cards appear pertend to drop and fumble them them I pick them up and take them over to my table and produce a card castle. Always gets a great reaction. Easy to do too!

Perhaps in the finale of your card manipulating routine you can shoot cards high into the air and create a sort of "card rain". You'll need to be able to shoot fast though. And in the midst of the "rain" you flash produce the castle. The castle is initially tucked in the rear inside of your coat, just pull it out and open it.

Then from the mess of cards on the floor you can produce the remaining castles in the way Murphy suggested.

Hope this helps!
