I am interested in doing some performing with Jumbo cards. Do you have any suggestions of resources that will teach how to do sleights with these large cards? In particular, I am interested in learning to do the Slip Force, but I am interested in other sleights as well. Any direction would be appreciated.

Thanks--

Flimnar,

The Slip Force is my favorite force. However, I do not think that it would be a good marriage with jumbo cards. Among other things, jumbo cards are so much more rigid than regular cards.

Good Luck!

Jumbo Coincidence, Essential Aldo #1. Two packets of jumbo cards that have been cut in half are introduced. A half-card is selected and its mate is found to be at the same numerical position in the other half.

In fact, they are the only two halves that match. For a finale, the rest of the cards are shown to have rearranged themselves so that all of the halves now match!

Flimnar,

Lybrary.com have just released an e-book version of Fred Castle's "Magic with Giant Cards". This was a small booklet that was initially published in the UK back in the early 1980s.

John, thanks for posting that link! I remembered seeing it some days ago, and have been searching for it to post it here. Of course I couldn't remember the title... Now I can finally do something else Smile
