Whilst that list has nothing to do with magic I have to say it is a great list Smile

The hardest "tricks" I know. Still haven't got them quite right.

I really like your post, it is inspiring and it would‘nt be a trick but real magic if many people, and even the most powerful leader(s) would go down this route.

But for the tricks it would be:
Cards: for sure the most difficult one to choose but I would go for something ungimmicked, let‘s say... „Diminishing not likely“ by Paul Gordon . Easy little, yet strong routine with different elements in it. (false display, transposition, card to anywhere finale).
Coins: Two phase Coin Flurry + Jumbo Coin ending
Others: ash to palm trick , as there are no ashtrays available, „Double Cross“ brought this trick into the new era. One of the view tricks which I never get bored off. Loved it when I first saw it and still love it.

As a close up magician I find it interesting to hear what 3 effects the stage performers have chosen Smile

There are guid lines- coins, carsd, and other...
if I had to choose anything, i`d go with:
-P**chological force + n**l w**ter
-Bob Cassidy 4 dimension.
-Booked by Steve Valentine (write the prediction- page number and word, put it in envelope, and give it to someone ``special`` to hold. Find the good place where the page will appear...) You have a killer finale.

Interesting post as it would probably drive me insane to have to do the same three tricks the rest of my life, but until I went crazy, perhaps:

1. Coin: A routine that I hope to market through Penguin soon where they have a free selection between three different denomination of coins and their selected coin turns into two.
2. Card: I like ACR and ACAAN so much I combined them into one shortened routine of both.
3. Other: If I'm only going to do three, I want my third to leave them with a souvenir, so I would do a drawing duplication, also with a killer method I devised, leaving them with a drawing duplication on the back of my business card. I might include this method in the Penguin release.

I like to stack my tricks together...

1. Coin: Sign coin => "Revolution vanish", but with the twist that the coin changes to a die => Ask spectator to inspect the die (this serves as mis-direction for the next step) => Signed coin to Impossible Location => Perform mentalism with the die
2. Card: Chicago Opener => ACR, with signed card => Signed card to wallet (using RMW)
3. Other: Double cross
