Great content...lots of originals and twists that party goers have never seen. I particularly appreciate the quality of the writing, editing, proofreading... BUT, THAT BEING SAID>>>

Am I the only one having trouble finding the illustrations referenced in "Color Prize Game" which begins on page 177? Realizing I'm getting older perhaps I'm just having one of those "moments," but I'm checking everywhere. It appears to describe a common "move," but would be nice to follow along with the instructions.

I had the same issue Stempleton. I thought the page was missing. I know " the move", so I didn't dwell on it, but I thought I had my first senior moment. I liked the the possible homage to the book "Open Sesame" by the first chapter.. I actually used that routine "Color Prize Game" this past Saturday when the mom texted
me(the day before),to do something special for a boy whos birthday that day.

Hey Steve. Unfortunately that is a mistake we discovered after printing. I decided to think of it as the collectible first printing! You can email me at christophertmagician@gmail.com and I'll send you pictures of the move for the color prize game.

Any chance we'll be getting a Kindle version in the future?

I just wanted to say I went through "Just For Fun" a few times and I really like it. It has some really great routines and clever thinking. My favorite so far is The Tiny Magician. I also performed Mccombical snack.
If you have the book what is your favorite routine?

If you're looking for new routines for family entertainment, Just for Fun is a gold mine of new ideas. Christopher T.

The result is fresh material for family shows that is contemporary, amazing, and hilarious. This hardbound book contains 325 pages of original routines. Most of the secrets rely on gimmicked props you probably own or can make inexpensively - and no power tools are necessary!

Fully illustrated by Finland's Martti Siren, Just for Fun has 50 new routines. Each one has been part of Chris's show ever since he was one of the busiest magicians in the greater New York City area. Before you've even finished this book, you'll be making a bunch of effects using tape, glue, spray adhesive, and photo paper along with lots of fun, novel items. Read about them below! The book details the scripts, handling and theory, so when you include these sure-fire routines in your set, you can be guaranteed that your young audiences will be laughing out loud.

Each chapter is packed with routines and performing advice covering a wide range of categories.

I'm looking for one of the props for the routine Quarter Head in Just For Fun. It's a horshoe magnet that has a coin flip out on the edge of the magnet.Anyone know where I can find one? I haven't had any luck...

There's also "Beyond Look, Don't See" (book), and "Live from the Living Room" (DVD set).
