Well, I'll have to video me doing the effect and put it up for you guys. (The Sympathetic Card Trick) It's REALLY good, imho. People always ask how the backs changed colors. They think it's something to do with heat that changes them. I also do a variation on the move that's in the instructions for it, and I believe it's better than the way you are supposed to do it. (It hides a no so sneaky move)

I'm going out of town this weekend, but when I get back I'll video it for you all.

Thanks Trevor, I look forward to finally seeing a version of it. Hard to believe I've gone this long and have never actually seen it.

Cheers, Wes

How is Blizzard a Packet trick? Surely packet tricks are tricks where you have a small PACKET of cards, and not the full deck?
When you do something right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all.

The same goes for "Out of This World" that somehow finds it's way onto this topic. Smile

I do have another packet trick that I keep in the same wallet with my Sympathetic Cards trick. Since so many people are mentioning "Color Monte" I thought I'd mention the one that I do... I don't know the name of it, since I learned it so many years ago... Anyway here's how it goes:

The magician talks about three card monte, and explains that he saw a guy once do it with FOUR cards. The magician then proceeds to show three blank cards, and an Ace of Hearts. He said "All he did was place one of the blank cards over here on the table, and then he placed the ace in between the other two cards. He counted them one, two three, from one hand to another, and all I had to do was find the ace". Of course the spectator chooses the center card, but you turn that over to reveal a blank card. You then turn over the card on the table, and it's the Ace. You proceed to do the trick a second time, again fooling them. On the third time, you tell them that you are going to make it easy on them. You show the blank card going down onto the table. You show the ace going into the center of the other two cards, and then you SLOWLY count one, two, three. At this point you say that the guy he was showing the trick to said, "I know what you did now!! And he says, THERE! There is the ace on the table!" You turn over the tabled card, and alas, it's blank. You then say, "I told you I was going to make it easy on you... all you had to do is pick one of these!" You then turn over all three cards in your hand, and they are ALL Ace of Hearts!

Great trick! deichler can attest to that! Smile I may have to video that one too, if you are interested...

Also, does anyone know the name of the above trick? I saw it when I was a kid, and I figured out how to do it, and have been doing it ever since.

Virginia City Shuffle perhaps? On one of the Ammar Easy To Master card Tricks videos so perhaps not ALL that many years ago. This is a nion gaffed version of Martin Lewis's "Sidewalk Shuffle" which was based on Joe Riding's non gaffed "Three Card trick With Four Cards".

Bob King also had a routine where he pretty much duplicated Sidewalk Shuffle without gaffs which to me was better.

Trevor,

Sounds like "Virginia City Shuffle" (Lewis/Falanga/Luka) as performed and explained by Michael Ammar on ETMCM Vol 5. It is fantastic isn't it. I always introduce as "the three card tick - with er, four cards!"

Hey all

I know I've joined this topic REALLY late.. but I thought I needed to add one effect that is shockingly absent from anyone's list: Card Warp.

I think it classifies as a packet trick and without a doubt, when I perform it, the spectator looks at those cards for about a minute.

In theory, the cards could be examined BEFORE too.. but I prefer to gaff mine in advance.

Other faves would be 'Twisting the Aces', 'Oil & Water', 'Cros Twist'. I don't know 'Color Monte' or 'Doc Daley' but I will have to look them up.
