Don’t know if it’s been mentioned but Paul Gordon’s Corner of Piccadilly has been very successful for me. Just long enough, can be done into a spectator’s hand or on the table the oversized antique cards are interesting to look at.

For a Real World (in the hands) worker, I really don't think any other 'packet trick' actually beats this routine.

Moreover, as you correctly say, the antique cards add to both the storyline and the interest; and even tend to detract away from it being just another card trick.

There's a clip on youtube somewhere of Craig Petty performing this routine to a really annoying, boozed-up bint. Even so, the reaction is quite superb; and well worth searching for, particularly if anyone is considering its purchase and wants to see its value.

EDIT: Here's the link - hopefully it works:

Just to add that my favourite strolling Packet Trick is something called 'Changing Shapes' by Joe Riding. It's been a regular with me since 1980.

It's a 4 card Twising the Aces type of routine; but with multiple colour changes to the backs throughout. When you gamblers cop the necessary and throw the 4 cards down for examination.......well let's just say I've been performing it for over 40 years for a very good reason. Smile

Another packet trick that I always perform, albeit with Jumbo Cards (which always gets a laugh before you even do anything), is Joe Riding's Irish 3 Card Trick.....using 4 cards. I cannot put into words the value that I have placed upon this wonderful trick over many, many years.

To pick only 3 is tough but based on the ones ive performed the most at actual paying gigs I would have to go with the following:

Dr Daley's Last Trick
Twisting The Aces with my own kicker finish
Corner Of Piccadilly

I have done many packet tricks over the years, but a few that have stuck with me I offer here in 3 sets are…

-Twisting The Aces & The Daley Trick, because they are just excellent immediate tricks to do from a regular deck, no gaffs necessary.

-NFW & Double Back, because of the sheer impossibility of it.

-B’Wave & Capitulating Queens…Love the compact presentation & mentalism of B’Wave, and ever since an old friend from Canada gave me CQ, it’s definitely been a fun keeper.

All these tricks are classic packet effects for me. I don’t do them all anymore but they are all well worth checking out. I used to practice and present them almost daily. But now since more so playing around with a regular deck, and as mostly a decent-at-best coin guy, I really enjoy doing Twisting the Aces, it’s just got a little of everything in it as to moves, overall presentation & amazement, and just plain old fun. 😊 And all from a regular deck of cards, or just from 4 Aces you carry in your wallet.
