Does anyone use a routine utilizing jumbo cards?

I know some people use them in Mentalism routines, or predictions, etc. Any suggestions? Something for the stage scene perhaps...trying to broaden my experience from just close-up.

Thanks

Here are some of my favorites:

Sidewalk Shuffle
Don Alan's Big Deal
Dan Tong's The Pentagon Test (Great Mentalism)
Chu's Stung Card (great for kidshows)

Thanks for the suggestions...I took a look at the Sidewalk Shuffle, and it seems to be a jumbo version of the Virginia City Shuffle, done by Ammar on Vol 5 of Card Miracles...same effect at least, if not the same handling.

I will be looking into this more.

Do you do card productions? If so, I think it looks cool when magicians do card productions with Jumbo Cards.

Ryan, please stop. You're killing me.

I once saw a magician do a hilarious routine with a jumbo card. He was essentially a table-hopper, but did a quick stand-up routine, and had people come up 'on stage'. He criss-cross forced two cards (top and bottom) on one and told them that one would be the card of the other person on the stage and the other would be his.

He then reached down the trousers of the man whom he'd asked to come up on 'stage' and pulled out a normal sized card, the card the other spectator had 'cut to'. He then asked the spectator who had done the cutting to reach down his trousers. She did, and pulled out a jumbo sized card.

I'm sure you can make the connection to what the cards were supposed to symbolise! Smile
