Which do you like best and why?
For example, RED SEA PASSOVER because the thought of card travels from a red packet into a blue.

Strange Travellers.... Really good and has people gasping everytime it is performed.
Simple and straight forward..
Also found it very easy to add to a deck and just perform it without any heat on the deck!
I also found no one ever wanted to see or examine the cards but this could be down to my audience management

These are both excellent effects in their own right. Paul Harris has massaged Strange Travelers into a crystal clear moment of astonishment. The effect is ideal for walk-around and casual situations. It could be performed in a show, but Red See Passover is a better choice for that. Aronson's routine is a showpiece. It really wouldn't be the best choice for casual situations, in my opinion, even though it does reset.

The beautiful thing about Red See Passover is the absolute scientific-like test conditions under which it is performed. And you can emphasize these conditions throughout. Everything is extremely open and clean and there are some 3 or 4 climaxes within the trick. It's multi-orgasmic! When the red card appears in the blue pile it's a real shocker!
It's all in the reflexes.

Although I'm not at all familiar with Strange Travelers or Red Sea Passover, I have done other cards-across routines in the past.

I'd like to know if either of these two effects (or something similar) can possibly be done with jumbo cards.

For RSP, they are 12 custom-made, special gaffed cards. If you can get jumbo custom-made ones, then it'd work. Perhaps send an email to Simon Aronson for his input.

@John,
What are the advantages of Thoughts Across vs RSP or StrangeTravelers or CrossedThoughts?

I'm afraid I'm not familiar with those other versions, so I wouldn't be able to compare them.

Thoughts Across gives three individuals the chance to mentally select a card, then to have a fourth spectator deal the three traveled selections onto the table.

After watching demos of Strange travelers the magicians are revealing the secret. Pretty sad IMHO. I'd do a H*** **** instead of the move in the demos.
Seems like Thought Across is exactly the same effect as Daryl's crossed thoughts though Daryl's presentation takes it to another level.Additionally, ST does not require the necessity to move the top card to the bottom so why not have them count them twice?
On the other hand, the idea of the card jumping to a packet of another color to me eliminates the idea of a false count and adds an extra moment of astonishment.
