I've used Spin Doctor since it came out ( got it from John's site ).

The discrepancy in the beginning is a non issue. Isn't it fun to sneak these things by them?

WHAT IF? They noticed it? JOY! Use it to your advantage. "You thought the cards were face up? How interesting. I wonder what else you may think you see".

Considering the ending, it would play right into it. Sadly, it won't happen. No one will notice.

Ditching the 5th card to the pocket? You could. But why cheat them out of the amazement of that ace turning blank in their hand?

Go to johnbannonmagic.com

You can see demos of all the fractal series plus a ton of other things he's been up to.
Duplicity is wonderful, and I use Royal Scam all the time. Spin Doctor is my least favorite, but it gets great reactions as well.

And yes, I do agree, if you take Liz with you, you won't ever have to worry about anyone noticing a discrepancy.

I prefer it with all 5 cards and either before or after strangers gallery. color change overload drives laymen crazy

I would think there would always be a discrepancy in Magic. Otherwise it would be real.

Some discrepancies are more problematic than others.
For me, the fact that an extra card appears from nowhere is a discrepancy. The effect is that the AS will disappear from spectator's hand and travel to the other Aces. I admit that in a sense it does do that because the card in their hand becomes blank. But this is really just a clever play on words. Fundamentally, the routine started with apparently 4 cards, and ends with 5. Which is a big clue to the method.

I prefer the handling of Eye Exam. One card is removed, and placed in pocket - then miraculously reappears. Of course the method is the same. But the effect is now that a card travelled, rather than an extra card appeared. Ending with 4 cards seems less likely to tip the method than ending with 5.

I don't think you really need to know beyond the overwhelming response. Smile What does it matter really that your suit is a bit snug if everyone is telling you how great and trim you look in it? I'm just saying' Smile
