Vernon, Stars of Magic.

Don't think it was Stars of Magic, but rather part of the Ganson series of Vernon books now in print by L&L.

I do have a filthy, X-rated presentation that uses the 1,2,3 and 4 of hearts (called Twisting the Tarts) but I don't perform it for everyone... Smile

Martyjacobs says the Vernon handling lacks a good ending....but I have to disagree. You've just shown all the cards face down. You've done this *** thing three times down and they are watching intently. You do nothing. The SPECTATOR rubs the cards...the spade turns over.
Another vote for Vernon!

I like the original version, but I've always hated the opening sequence that gets everything into position. Let's face it, no one turns cards over end for end (necktie), it fits with the patter, but I never liked it. Then I found a little gem in the book "Counthesaurus" that allows you to show each card one by one from biddle grip and it looks totally clean.

Prototype, I have this book. Could you tell me what the name of the count that you are reffering to is?

Wow, I just got "Spin Doctor" by John Bannon. It is a truly GREAT Twisting the Aces routine. With this one, all of the cards can be examined at the end and it has a wonderful surprise rainbow climax. Check it out.

Sorry, I was so quick to say Vernon's original that I didn't stop and think. Thank you.

There is a Twisting the Aces effect by John W. McClure. In this effect the moves for all the four twisted ACE are same making the effect more entertaining.

Does any one perform "One Simple Twist"? It was published in the book "The Cardwright" by L. jennings.

I am a big fan of Hollingsworth's Waving The Aces. I find it to be visually stunning and the kicker at the end when the kings turn into the aces. Vernon's routine is also wonderful and either way you can't go wrong with either one of these routines.

I would not be so bold or delusional as to call my version "the bset," but I do have a version for sale on my website that plays very well for me. I sell it as a PDF on my site, and it was also on my DVD. I have a YouTube video of it (taken directly from the DVD) here:

I recently got Spin Doctor and have to agree that it's a cracking version of TTA but it's not the best trick from the Fractal Card Magic series; that honour goes to Royal Scam.
You were born original... Don't die a copy Smile

The effect "Packetrainer" from the book Foucs is a good Twisting the Aces effect

Fred Kaps version, my favourite, easy to do. Yoy can find the explanation in Fred Kaps lecture.

Watch a video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IIOcugPweoA

I actually needed your video in addition to the written Kapp's routine to make this work. I didn't find the version in the notes a good explanation. I also assume your presentation uses a DB rather than what is suggested in the notes.
