I've been dabbling in coin magic for a while and am looking for the easiest coins across routine. Right now Im practicing Gregory Wilsons from On The Spot. I was wondering if there were easier ones out there.

Thanks

Actually you are probably working on one of the easiest there is: Gregory Wilson's 3/4 Coins Across. Stick with it until it is a part of you! What you don’t want to do is to keep trying various different routines before you are proficient at any of them. Believe me - I know!!

The easiest coins across routine is the cross of India by Daryl.. But why do you need the easiest?

What's the hardest coins across? That's the one I want to learn then the others will seem easy Smile

By the way Jim I don't think that Wilson's 3/4 coins across is easy!! But I totally agree with the advice you are giving!!

I almost have Wilson's 3/4's across down but occasionally fumble (as Gregory did even in his video). I suppose I was just looking for something more fail safe (which is why I'm seeking an easier version mago.niko). I'll have to check out "Cross of India", look in to BoBo's stuff and David Neighbors routine. Also, gaffed doesn't bother me one bit. I agree that I should dedicate myself to one and practice it over and over. The problem is that without a 100% success rate of fumbling Im not completely comfortable. I'll always use Gregory's for "get-me-out-of-a-jam" situations but I feel an easier, "worry-free" version would be nice to have on me.

Amazing suggestions. Thank you very much.

Then you don't need something more fail safe.. You need more practice !! Smile
If you have already reach a level where you can sometimes do the whole routine without failing on a move or flashing a coin then it's a matter of days or weeks to make it look good!! Unfortunately there is no shortcut..
Now that I know why are you looking for something easier I wouldn't recommend you something like the Cross of India.. If you are already practicing the "3/4 coins across" that would be a step back.. As Jim said stick with what you have and practice hard every sleight used in this routine.

The coins across from Steve Dusheck's '82 dvd using "Coin Card".
My ex-cat was named "Muffin". "Vomit" would be a better name for her. AKA "The Evil Ball of Fur".

Very constructive. Like many effects I usually purchase/learn different variations of the same effect to get a holistic knowledge of them. In the end I use what comes easiest because lets face it, we just don't have the time nor the desire to have our reputation tarnished to be fumbling even 1 out of 10 tables. I will continue to practice and use Wilsons 3/4's across but I will also remain on my journey to learn different variations that may suit different contexts. But thanks again for the sound advice to continue practicing the same one.

Once you feel comfortable with the one you are practicing now, take a look at some of David Roth's routines. Both his Winged Silver and his Shelled Coins Across are relatively easy to perform and are also very visually magical. Neither is a fingertips or 3-Fly type of effect, but they still can kill!

Jim, you're extremely helpful and seem to have a wealth of knowledge/resources regarding this coin effect. I believe I have enough info to go out and experiment. Thanks a million. Much appreciated.
