Hi,

I'm not the best with cards but want to work something in with the tricks I can do. I'm looking for a card trick where attention can be drawn away from me for a few moments to give me time to pull out a few juggling balls, juggle for a few moments depending on how well it is received and then continue with the trick. Preferably a trick where my hands are left empty and with basic slights as I am not too proficient yet but any suggestions would be great as I am willing to put in the time for a more effective trick.

Cheers, Winston.

I'm curious -- what's the benefit of juggling in the middle of a card trick rather than between tricks? What do you hope to achieve with that approach?
It's still magic even if you know how it's done.

I'm hoping to achieve a comical effect, patter such as "Choose a card" ... in someway that makes them look away and gives me time to pull out some balls... they look back and I'm juggling "Tell me what card you chose, it doesn't matter I've seen this trick before" they tell me the card and I pocket the balls and continue, etc. I have no real reason for it, I just think it could be a comical interlude for a card trick.

Cheers, Winston.

I have been thinking about it and your skepticism is probably warranted, perhaps a better way to go about it would be to say I was going to do a card trick then reach for the "cards" but pull out the juggling balls claiming I had the wrong pocket or something and continue into a card trick after some juggling. I would still appreciate some good card trick suggestions to learn though, I only have a few as cards aren't my strong point. I know twisting aces, I can do a Cardini change effect and I am working on Matched Spellout at the moment.

Cheers, Winston.
