How many effects can you perform with one packet to make a mini set/routine?

An obvious favorite would be Twisting the Aces followed by Dr. Daley's Last Trick, but what else are people doing?

Something I've come up with is an All Back's routine from Steve Beam followed by The Ambitious Classic by Jennings, but with only Ace through 4. These flow right into each other because of the cards they require, so it just works out nicely.

What have you come up with?

It depends on what consists of the "one packet" meaning. I stack my performance deck in a way that I can switch between a couple packets and still end clean. IE... set up for twisting the aces (followed by Dr Daley's last trick) on top. Directly under that setup is setup for Bro. John Hamman's twins. The bottom of the deck I set for Chicago Opener (which I don't open with) Smile then I place 3 cards on top A/s 2/s A/s (dupe) before retuning set deck to card box. (It fits, as there are only 54 cards - 52 plus dupe for top and diff back dupe for C/O on bottom) in the cellophane I place 4 cards necessary for Alex Elmsley's "4 card trick".

On with the set... in order
Open with 4 card trick from cellophane...put cards back when done (reset)

Next, remove deck and do a simple transposition in their hands w/A, 2, A...set A, 2 in empty card box when done. Add Additonal A to next set.

Next, pull four cards for twisting the aces and Dr Daley's last trick... return to centerish of deck when done.

Now pull the set out for Twins and lose in deck when complete.

Finally, Bust out with Chicago Opener. Loose odd back plus the dupe Ace, return the 2/s and you are off to the races with any random card effect.

You are actually playing with a full deck at this point.

I like to go ACR here - length determines itself and end with the cards transitioning to coins...sponges... tt - silk... ITR? whatever you want next.


4 card trick is a powerful opener and leaves you clean (exminble)
2 card transpo in specs hand - boom
Twisting the aces and Dr Daley's last trick - baffles them
Twins for the holy cripes kicker ending.
Chicago Opener. Wow them again (reopen in case you are losin someone)
ACR with a full deck of possibilities. Build, build climax.

NEXT??? Smile

Its been a working formula of mine for a long time when busting out the card stuff. Although it is a full deck of cards per say, you utilise several packets before bouncing back into a full deck routine.

You could do intuition, then out of the blue, then dr. daily's, then twisting the aces.

That's impressive Poof, but what I'm really curious about is how people have combined tricks with only a small number of cards; being able to see wher two or three or more tricks crossover allowing you to go on for 5 minutes or more.

Some of the 'royal marriages' routines work together well.

I'm reviving this thread because I'm curious about where I can find the second routine, the Richard Vollmer one, explained in print or on video


Thanks,


Bob
