The card effect "Bottoms Up" seems to be interesting. Here is the link.

Someone recently posted about trying to focus his act around alcohol. This would be great for him.

It seems from the advert there are various routines (some standard card ideas) put together with the drink cards. I would think the creator/compiler is Eddie Burke who runs the company.

A great idea Paul,
But a marketing which doesn't live up to your technical capacities... The glide is a little short technically and the two rows lay out is out dated after Shigeo Takagi and a few others: Now this doesn't affect the fact that the idea is great and that you leave with us the possibility to bring in further technical prowesses in an altogether casual effect.
The cards are as good as the concept and we could not have had them done ourselves for a fraction of the price.

Altogether a bargain for sharing a good time with an audience.

?? I think Lawrence you're confusing this post query, and link, with my own effect "Water To Wine" which is different.

RE: "But a marketing which doesn't live up to your technical capacities... The glide is a little short technically and the two rows lay out is out dated after Shigeo Takagi and a few others"

You are quite correct! Smile In the printed instructions some early purchasers might have (that are no longer supplied now the DVD is with it)my second paragraph stated:

" Experienced magicians will be (or should be)familiar with the original Kane effect and no doubt have their favorite methods for displaying the cards and affecting various changes. Feel free to adapt the routine to suit you. Given here is a basic method to accomplish the effect and some fun lines to use with it".

I'm simply offering a new and amusing presentation for "Wild Card" and supplying it with a very easy to learn method. The routine is received very well by lay people. So you are also correct when you say, "Altogether a bargain for sharing a good time with an audience". Audiences are not as bothered about methods as magicians are SmileEven I when using it don't always stick to that handling.

As for the credit for glide and two row layout, I was unaware of the Shigeo Takagi link. It appears in "Wild Card Outdone" a booklet put out by Supreme Magic which had routines by Kane, Bob Gill and others. Most of the marketed wild card variants in the UK in the seventies (Marvillo' Master Card, One Over The Eight etc. used a glide and two row layout).

A strange credit indeed for wild card can be found in Harry Baron's old book "Card Tricks For Beginners" (Jan. 1969) where again a two row layout and glide are used. Al Smith considers it a real puzzle as apparently it is a reprint of an earlier publication under a different title, which unless material had been added would predate Kane for the effect. Personally I think additional material must have been included.

The description of "Botoms up" effect mentions many routines are possible. It is marketed by many dealers, appears to be popular.
