In Knucklebusters Four, Reed has a crazy cool version of Chink a Chink that takes place in your hand, and in the process of waving the opposite hand all the coins assemble. I think that it's really cool, still working on it though lol.

How about doing the effect with pepperonis on a pizza, assembling all 4 pepperonis on one slice only by waving your hand over and the best thing you could even eat the props before they want to examine everything!!!

Hi Gang,
Also forgot to say my cardless routine has a complete Reverse Assembly i.e. the 4 coins go back to the 4 corners at the end!

My routine also has a very clean reverse in it that happens also has a very clean all at once assembly that hasn't been seen before becuase the hands actually move AWAY from the coins that assemble. Plus it can be examined if you guys like that kind of thing. It took a LONG time to come up with the handling the way I wanted it to 3 months non-stop it seemed.

I believe David Roth had a one similar to what you are looking for. I saw something like it on Letterman when he was performing.

There is a nice no cards matrix in a book by Danny Korem titled "Korem Without Limits". The book is packed with good stuff and well rounded ie: not just coins, or cards. Available for about $35.00 from Ronjo and others.

How about a Matrix with no cover at all? You visually see the coins slide across the table. It was Jay Sankey who dreamed this up using Chinese coins, but it was impractical at the time. It's published in Sankey Pankey.

Now, with a little help from a modern aramid material from Dupont... Smile

I saw a guy do a version in Tannens once with just his hands on the carpet, fingers spread. You could actually see the coin arrive under his hand before it left from under the other hand. It was friggin awesome. I still wish to someday find him and hogtie him til he teaches me it.

I may be mistaken but if he does what you say, he should constantly hear: hey you use 5 coins! It's a matter of cause and effect. Something has to leave first before it can arrive.

There is a very interesting thread about vanish/reappearance on one of the 2000 3-fly threads in which Bob Kohler and a lot of guys had a genuine technical discussion on the subject.

Shadow coins is quite simmilar to a matrix with no cards, and if you DON'T want to use any gaffs, just do a renidition of Dean dills "no extras," it's nice. with the help of a [, it's not that hard to come up with some nice matrix stuff with just ur hands. But if you want to use a Shadow Coins variation, do Michael Ammar's, it's on his Easy to master coin Miracles, volume 2. that's worth learning just so you know some of the princibles of shadow coins.
