I don't know who makes it, but The Cheating Gambler is a great effect, that is 100% examinable at the end of the routine.

Reset, Twisting the Aces and Bizarre/Cros Twist are all great and use completely normal cards!

Thanks Smile

ESP cards performed by Derren Brown on his Mind Control show.

Can be viewed before and after. That is, if you can tell which one they are thinking of.

Presto Printo, twisting the aces (not really a packet trick per se), Paramount by Aldo Colombini... that's about all I can think of. I really don't do too many packet tricks.

I'm suprised no one has mentioned James Swain's Capitulating Cards. You begin dirty but end clean with his superb clean-up. It really is an excellent effect.

The aspirant should acquire the resolve to explore and expand his talents to the best of his ability. With a thorough commitment to quality comes a sense of accomplishment and unique satisfaction.

There is an old Emerson and West packet trick called "All The Nonconformists." John Bannon did some work with the plot. There is a version on the Mike Skinner performance-only video.

A friend recently taught me a killer version where all the backs can be shown as red, then as blue, and at the end the backs are mixed red/blue. You end clean. In fact, the spectators are so sure trick cards are used that hading them out gets another gasp. The friend who taught me the effect suggests giving away the cards.

examinable meaning examinable AFTER the effect doesn't have to be before.

Blizzard's gimmick is not examinable. If you mean to examine the deck, it's ok, but not examinable which means everything.

Doc Eason's King Arthur's Pub is a great packet effect. It's not examinable but if you present it properly, the finale is examinable and you end clean! I think the important thing in packet effects is that you appear totally clean rather than being actually clean. Effects like NFW, Twisted Sisters, appear to be clean. Something with an ending with all Blank cards or mirrors or some type of unfamiliar prop is something I would not recommend in packet effects.

just my 10 cents
