Derren browns version is the most direct out of this world,that I can think of right know..using a regular deck.

spectator shuffles,deals in 2 piles,piles are turned over showing red and black seperated

at least that's what it looks like to the spectator.

Best of All Worlds is due out at the end of the year. Look for advertisements in Genii, Magic, MUM and LINKING RING

Pre-sale is coming soon!

Lawrence has contributed his GIANT reference list to the book, and thank you.

I didn't see it mentioned so I thought I'd throw this out there. In Joshua Jay's book, Magic, he includes a version of OOTW. Seems to be a basic handling, but it was my introduction to this trick. I know he credits Harry Lorayne, but I don't know if the handling is all the same.

Wow, Denny REALLY wanted to know who was putting that book out!

I have 3 different versions of OOTW published in eBooks available for sale on the "books" page of my website, http://www.scottfguinn.com :

What in the World in My Best to You: Cards

Turn Your Back on the World in Guinn Gone Mental

Don't Face the World in Marked for Death

I have used all three in my repertoire, and all three play very well for me.

I was mistaken. He credits Paul Curry. Don't know how I got that mixed up.

This thread prompts me to ask guidance in identifying instructional resources for the most effective, natural set-up for OOTW (in my case, Galaxy as the preferred presentation.) Lawrence, is your forthcoming setup available? Which methods seem least suspect and appear most natural? Along with Diplopia, this is a favorite with a non-gaffed deck, but I have yet to find a set-up that can be done openly. thank you.

Derren Brown's is my current favourite, but, I have to confess there is something about timing 'the move' that I can't seem to do well consistently.

I have the "Fifth Printing" of Paul Curry's OOTW that has 3 double sided pages in the typical 1950s looking mimeograph style. I imagine I bought it 25 or so years ago. I was wondering if there were "printings" after that. In this version, Mr. Curry lists 7 variations or "suggestions" that were submitted to him over time, though some give very little detail (such as you can use a STR****R d**k). In my version, I make the spectator the performer as I am "tired of doing card tricks" and instill magical powers in them so I can just watch. I use the beginning of the original where I show them how its done with the first few cards, making them think they will also do a trick with the cards face up. But then I throw in an "oh, I forgot to tell you..." and let them know it might be a little harder but they have to do it face down and THAT is the trick.

I've tried using a ma***d card, a key, and other ways to be able to talk and not count, but like others was looking for a combination of the best versions. Personally, I like tricks that don't seem obviously "prepared" and feel that the showmanship of the reveal is the trick. Some people have the cards turned over one by one, others flip each pile over basically in a "one two punch". I think the fun patter and slow development of the trick with a powerful finish at the end is what has made it such a classic. I'm more interested in the best performance and adapting it than a "how to".

Okay Let Me try and describe this as best as I can...I believe it is an OOTW effect done at my SAM Meeting.....anyway...

The Magi calls 2 spectators up to his table, gives each of them a packet of face down cards, asks them to deal the cards one at a time to this pile, that pile or a third pile, both spectators deal alternatively from their packet in their hand to a joint/combined face down packet on the table (faces of cards completely unseen at this point) after the cards are all dealt out (still in face down position) the magician turns each pile over and the cards are seperated ala OOTW

Did my description make sense? Is it an OOTW or out of this universe effect? It seems like it..any ideas?

It sounds like 'Out of this blah blah' from a Jon Armstrong dvd.
