I agree with you Dr K but in fairness the Precognition Deck is not a packet trick either Smile

I thought the topic was about examinable packet tricks??

What about 'Out of Order'? An examinable 4 card (riveted) packet trick by some Brit guy living in New York (*cough*)

I agree with Jason. Jim Swain's Capitulating Queens is one strong routine. A lot of magic happens and you are left with 4 odd colored back cards. I use it behind the bar constantly and in my strolling venues. If you are interested, contact Jim or Gary Plants for the effect.

I love Jim Swain's Turnabout II from his book 'Don't Blink'- The cards just scream to be examined at the end.

It's only examinable in the finale stage when you deal right out in the specs hands, but rainbow cascade from Davenport's is FAB!

Knocks their socks off every time!

Phil Goldstein has a nice one in Focus called Packettrainer. It requires four cards of one suit (Ace to four).

You teach the audience a series of different gestures each of which causes each of the cards to turn face up one at a time. At the conclusion, you show all four cards face down and then hand them to a member of the audience, who snaps his fingers and counts the cards from hand to hand to show a face up ace. The cards can be left with the audience member.

There is also a very good routine with Vernon's Variant in the Ganson Book. Again four ungimmicked cards turn over in your hands but not in those of the spectators.

I guess I'm in the minority. I love Hollingworth's waving the aces. Smile

I love Waving The Aces too, but it's not examinable.

Good old "ungimmicked" three card monte. Using three cards from their deck that "double flash" and "bent corner" gets em every time. I like Doc Eason's handling on the trick. Smile

This thing is my favorite! 3 Card Monte is A LOT OF FUN. Even when my friends know how it's done, I still always win the first 3 times. I love it.

Here's another vote for the old fashioned monte, even though I don't perform it.

When I worked in a magic shop I used to demo a great little packet trick called "Sympathetic Cards". Kind of a difficult effect to describe. I'm not shilling for The Magic Warehouse, but the effect can be found (http://www.themagicwarehouse.com/vidca1.html) on the Vol. 2 of "The Best of Emerson and West" (along with "Know Fu-Ling"). Very startling Rainbow-back finish, everything examinable. You wouldn't think you could conceal that many odd backed cards in this little packet trick, but the construction is excellent.

Bar none, the BEST packet trick EVER, a complete theatrical performance piece, that will absolutely kill, and is relatively easy to do - "Ode to Poker Dan"! 'nuff said..

I have just obtained Focus. This is full of some of the best packet tricks of all time. Masque is an absolute killer.

Yes. Phil hand picked the contents from several years of his published work. Killer stuff in spades.

Over the last couple of days, I have been thinking about this topic. It seems to me that there are only a few ways to get to the end of a packet effect and be totally clean.

Firstly, use an ordinary set of cards. Extract them from a FSDIU and indulge in what Mr Mentzer calls "Counts, Cuts, Moves and Subtleties". Note that during this process there will be times that the packet will be "dirty" as all getout. For example think of some of the uses of the Elmsley count. But, as the man said, clean and examinable at the end is what matters in this thread.

An alternative approach is to employ one or more gaffs in conjunction with ordinary cards to produce the effect. Switch them out at an appropriate stage of proceedings, allowing you to finish clean.

I noticed that the nomination of Michael Skinner's handling of a mechanical monte set generated some passing heat earlier in this thread. To my mind, there is no reason why you can't finish clean from the Skinner monte, if that is what gets a neat windsor knot in your tie.

If you are familiar with the monte routine that Ken Brooke called the "Dutch Looper" you will be half way there. You can access this either through Lewis Ganson's writing in the "Three Card Monte as Entertainment" or in the second part of Darryl's monte video where he concentrates on mechanical monte sets. In both of these sources there is a "clean up" move that will leave you with an examinable money card.

I'll leave cleaning up the second card as an exercise for you, as I don't intend tipping my solution on an open board.

Hope this helps
Linds
