Consider adding Bill Goodwin's "Twisting the Kings" routine from "Reflections" DVD.
A very nice version I might add!

Naturally I will do it. Thanks for the reference.

Bill Goodwin's version is also my favorite. You can see a bit of it here. It starts at 00:35 on the Youtube video-

Dai`s version is still best IMHO because regular cards are used. Nothing real fancy but at least it`s impromptu.

For a packet trick I still like "Done With Mirrors". Gives an explanation? of how we do our tricks.


Have fun,
John

I usually use the Dai Vernon handling with my own presentation which totally justifies the opening setup and all the moves within the routine, then finish with the last card turning over within the card box as suggested in Strong Magic by Darwin Ortiz.

I heard from a friend that anecdotal evidence is actually quite reliable.

I personally like Wayne Houchin. This is probably because that is the first version of twisting the aces that I actually learned.

"I will tell all why I love this post. It was phrased CORRECTLY. How many times have we seen this: "What is the best (insert effect name here) in print?" or, even WORSE: "What version of (insert effect name here) should I use in my act"? ACK!!!!!!"

thank god someone finally made this trenchant point

My favourite of all time is "King thing" by Gary Kurtz
Practicing is like a bank, if you don't put anything in, you won't get anything out!

I really enjoy seeing Magicians offer their take on Twisting the Aces. Some very creative versions have come out.

But for me, the Dai Vernon original routine I learned in the 1960's from the Ganson book, is stunning piece of card magic.

I always offer to explain how it works and do Doc Daley's Last trick. It probably makes no sense, but I've got the aces out, so.....
