Can any one help me out finding the Steve Beam effect mentioned above, The Worlds Greatest Magician? The title alone is fun and sets the tone for the trick.

Simon Aronson's Spell It Out, even to me, who really dislikes spelling tricks, is a great impromptu, direct, and impossible-seeming spelling trick, and I hope nobody looks it up.

Paul Gordon's Eight of Diamonds is excellent. Featured in Magic a couple of years back and appears as Greight in one of Harry's Best of Friends volumes. It's a two-fold effect. A magician goes wrong and a speller with a Greight outcome!

Spelling effects don't really interest me.
Although I do one all the time because of Wow factor it creates.
Pack of cards on table. Spectator thinks of any card. The magician picks up the pack and spells to the card.
That's it- happens in 5-10 seconds and then onto the next effect no fuss.
It's part of an opening routine I use at the moment [2 minutes max to present an ACAAN first, then Brainwave, then thought of card to pocket, and then spell to any thought of card].
Keep it all moving and as a small section in the bigger presentation the 'spelling' part has legs. Audience is dumfounded, appreciative and interested in what's coming next after seeing so much so quickly.
Spelling effects that take time and set conditions are so tedious.
I feel as if I have been whisked here from another life....it may even have been my own!

Hi Roger,

Well stated regarding the Gordon effect. The only problem which I admit hardly ever occurs is if the eight, queen, or seven (whichever you choose) ACTUALLY turns out to be the card the spectator selected - it actually weakens the effect.

Mr. Lorayne,

Once again I find myself mentioning your own "Spell[i]gant" from Apocalypse. Such an excellent effect that I have used and I have recommended in quite a few "spelling" threads.

Check it out in the "black" volume folks.

Best,
Vlad

Matched Spellout- Dai Vernon. I use Roger Klause's handling. Anytime, anywhere, impromptu, borrowed deck gem. Thank you, Professor. Thank you Mr. Klause.

The Four of a Kind by Dai Vernon performed by Darryl is a fun impromptu spelling card trick. It is described in detail on Darryl’s Fooler Dooler volume1 DVD. The audience will enjoy this spelling card trick routine.

This is Your Card- George Coon

This one is a gem. I love the revealment but I don't love that the performer chooses the five cards for the spelling procedure so I've been combining it with Harry Lorayne's Take Five so that the spectator selects the five random cards, which I feel, makes it stronger.

I have revisited the “Four of a Kind” trick performed by Darryl on his Fooler Doolers VOL 1 DVD. Darryl does credit this spelling trick to Dai Vernon. Dai’s trick was called “Matched Spellout”. Darryl just happened to put his twist on the awesome Dai Vernon trick.
