Many years back now I put out a download called Short Pockets, some here might remember. It was my very first "package" of effects, and still to this day some of the best stuff I ever came up with, IMHO…Still love that music I used too. Smile

Of late, I've been playing with an effect from there called KrazyKoins Across, just because recently I only happened to have 3 half dollars on me (and one was a WL). Smile Anyway, I decided to revisit this effect and remembered why I came up with just using 3 coins instead of 4 in this coins across version. I initially thought that 4 coins was just 1 coin too many, and also I wanted to do a stand-up version of it and not use a table as I had been taught regarding the effect. I had some other ideas in working it and thus came up with something I really thought people would like, and they did. Smile

I've been playing with the effect a lot lately and people are just baffled by it, as I keep telling them the old line. "I can't do it any slower than this." Smile The first coin is unbelievable and they are stunned. I do it again but this time after showing all three coins in the left hand, magically 2 coins jump to the right hand. The usual look on their faces is something like, "This can't be happening." And I remind them that, "I can't do this any slower." Smile

The last coin is a gem of a finale as a special move and piece of misdirection makes it happen quite dynamically. As all eyes are on my left hand holding the last coin, I ask them, "Did you see it happen?" After a beat and before they can answer (with their eyes now very much glued to my left hand) I say while opening my left then right hand…"Because now all 3 coins have magically gone across." And I finish by saying with a smile, "If I did this any slower, the coins would still be in my pocket." Smile They are floored!…How?, No Way!, WTF!!! Smile

I have done this trick or parts of it, dozens of times just this past week alone. I am falling in love with it all over again for the same reason I first put it together years back now…It's quite unconventional, just uses 3 coins, uses some good moves to make it all happen, and is very fun & interactive with the specs. I even, from time to time, switch up on the ending to make it classically play to the spec's hand. Smile It's a fun routine that had fallen to the bottom of my bag of tricks, that I'm glad I'm doing again for people. One day, that was all I did, all day long believe it or not for a variety of people. And interestingly, it was all I needed…Something that was always there, an oldie but goodie. Smile

Just another one to add to the list of your back catalogue that I'll be purchasing when I get paid on the 1st Dec here Marion. I have to say the laid-back style you use when you perform your tricks is extremely appealing/watch-able and everything I see of yours I instantly think "wow, that's so clean, I need this!" Me and my girlfriend sat and watched the demo vids of all your tricks earlier and both of us were stunned by how natural you make it seem. Great work Smile

It's been a long time since I seen these. They look just as good today as they did then. Really looks better now. It's been so long that it was all new to me again.
Thanks for sharing !

Tim! Smile

Glad to see you back here buddy. Smile And thanks for remembering this initial work I put out. It's back when some of us were just getting our sea-legs here, and endeavoring to contribute to the art. As I remember it, you did some wonderful works yourself. Smile

I know you've been busy with family and professionally, and doing a stellar job at both I'm sure - Always cheering for you, my old friend. Happy to hear your voice here again, and to feel a uniquely kind and magical spirit.

Happy Holidays ahead to you and the family. Smile

Mb and Tim got me back into doing coin effects after hand disabilities eliminated about 80% of what I usta could.

I tired ShortPockets and other and couldn't do all of the moves, so I began adapting and inventing new ways to achieve similar results.

Look to the inspiration in all effects you try -- and never set one aside just because "it isn't me."

If you have not explored some of Mb's effects do it today. If you put one on the shelf, dig it out.

Simple effects. Simple magic. Simply grand!
