Geoff Williams's "Devastation" from "The Lecture Your Mother Never Gave You" and, I believe, one of his DVDs.


It's largely Tom Daughetry's effect though, based on something from Greater Magic; and it's too good to share with other people. Smile

My favourite selfworker is by far "Dead Reckoning" by John Bannon.
I eliminated the only sleight, which wasn't really a sleight.

Pre deck ability by Aldo Colombini(which I can only assume is based on an Ayers effect) is my new favorite self worker (it does require a set up).
My other favorite self workers that can be done with a borrowed deck & no set up are-

Devastation by Geoff Williams
3 card prediction by Maurice Fogel
60 second memorized deck by Tom Frame
Timely departure by John Bannon

These 4 are Killers!!!

Predeckability by Colombini is not based on any Ayres effect as far as I know, only the names are similar.

As I always like to research new self-workers that I haven't yet discovered, could you describe 3 card prediction by Fogel? I am guessing it's something similar to Jay Sankey's ShuffleCutDeal but I may be wrong.

The effect can be found in the book-Mastering the art of magic by Eugene Burger.

A spectator shuffles the deck, & you pull out 3 predictions. The spectator goes through a simple(& very fair looking) procedure to arrive at 3 cards(I can't explain it in detail, as it will give away the effect)& they of course are the mates of the 3 predictions.

This was one of the first card tricks I ever learned & it has never gotten a bad reaction.it's a real head scratcher.

These are some wonderful card tricks, but the best self worker has to be the invisible deck.

I would cast a vote for "Will the Cards Match?."

-truly impromtu; can use a borrowed deck or flash cards
- no gaffs to worry about; cards are all examinable at the end.
- no sleights. If you can spell those words, then you can do this trick.
Life is an improv. The game goes on...

Roberto Giobbi's Card College Light has easy tricks.

The opening two tricks in the book TNT and Intuition (Which is basically Out of this World) need a pre-arranged deck but are great tricks without sleights. They are done as a routine. (TNT ends with a deck ready for OOTW.) There is one move in TNT but it requires no skill.

You can find Will The Cards Match in APOCALYPSE. You might also want to check my impromptu card section in THE MAGIC BOOK, if you can find a copy. HL.

My vote is for Emotional Reaction by Vernon. Found in Inner Secrets of Card Magic.

I've never had it fail, it's a POWERFUL effect that you can use as a closer if you present it right.

Even magicians seem impressed when the card is eventually revealed. Few guess the method and none have yet figured out the actual application.

Hi gentlemen,

Thank you for your interest in my work.

For the record, information about my book PREDICT-ABILITIES (Book Two in the Act-series) may be found at http://www.mickayreswares.com. A search on this forum will turn up a few threads that contain many unsolicited reviews about the book.

By the way...all the material in the entire Act-series is self-working.

Warm regards,
Mick

I don't know many self-working tricks...I find many of the ones I've read seem to involve an insufferable amount of counting and spelling out. I think I'm too ADD to stay focused.

However, I did see a self-working trick taught as a freebie by Mark Wilson. I don't know if this is a well-known trick, but he calls it, "Fantastic Five." It's quick, visual, and it seemed pretty magical to me (at least on the initial viewing.)

Here's the lesson on Youtube:

SSSHH!! That's an inner secret. All kidding aside' "Emotional Reaction" is a great effect that Dai used to fool the best! Simple but, high impact.
