Slydini’s Impossible Miracle from The Best of Slydini and More meets all the criteria, is very easy, and is fooling.

Hello,

I love self-working effects. One of my favourites is by Lennart Green on his Penguin lecture. He starts his card magic segment with it, borrowing a shuffled deck and predicting the outcome of reds and blacks in 2 piles. I'm not sure what it's called, I just refer to it as 'Reds & Blacks'. The routine also finishes with a kicker ending involving a numerical 4x4 square, some free choices from the spectator, and a card location reveal to close.

Does anybody here routine self-workers? I'd be interested to see how other people have strung tricks together that require very little work, but hit big.

The effect is a kind of Do as I Do + Triumph by Liam Montier, and it's easy to do.

The Prace Rise by Jeff Prace. A gimmickless rising card effect.

I'd be quite surprised if this is sleight-free.

Yeah, because Jeff Prace cleverly used the knowledge of Physics, Gravity and Friction, to achieve the beautiful illusion of the Rising Card.

I recently picked up a Simon Aronson book which had Prior Commitment in. I use the Queenspell variation which is fantastic. Spec 1 cuts the deck and selects card, spec 2 does the same, both cuts are replaced. Magician finds the 2 red queens then spells out The Queen of Diamonds then Hearts and both cards are found. Minimal handling. Superb trick.

Twinkle by Simon Lovell

Effect: There are two colored decks. A spectator cuts the cards from one of the colored decks, and then chooses three random cards behind their back. Next, the performer picks up the other deck and does the same. In the shocking revelation, all three cards from the spectator match the performer's!

I just learned this one from Dai Vernon and that is "Rendezvous". A great impromptu no set up trick.I still don't know how it works.
