Idea I had for years using the same gimmick only making the deck bigger...

I use mini-cards for imaginary/invisible deck. When I bring it out, I tell the spectator they were not thinking hard enough about the deck (hence the small size)

Nice......it’s “Micro-Macro” using no table spread. Never thought of doing it this way, very nice.

I have recently started hand m--king cards as a hobby--mostly Bicycle Rider and Maiden backs. I find working with the Bike Minis particularly challenging both for the smallness of the areas to be m----d and because of the glossiness of the backs, which do not take in-s as well as the more porous air-cushion finish on the regular poker size cards. I find that it is rather like "running with weights on" to create a nice, clean set of the Minis, but when done right they are just as usable/legible as the standard size cards, and no one has ever raised the question of any funny business going on with the backs. Further, their small size even justifies a bit of slack in time spent glancing at the backs without arousing undue suspicion. FWIW--just thought someone might find this interesting.

J.B. BoBo (yes, the coin guy) had an entertaining routine for a mini Brainwave Deck decades ago. I've forgotten the details, but it might be worth tracking down...

Go on youtube.put in BRICK TILLEY LITTLE CARDS. to see a bro.hamman trick long lost, as it's a chore to construct...
God's grace rocks! It makes a good cups and balls routine look pretty boring in comparison.
