I agree with Munger.

Bill Malone's version of the Throw Change / Alpha Toss, called "My Favorite Opener" is quick, visual and the magic happens in their hands.

Never fails to get the desired response. Never.

When the cards are in the spectators hands how do handle them from not exposing them prematurely?
Like Doc Daley's last card trick.


I do Wilson's version called Weighted Aces. I have done this hundreds of times and I don't remember when a spectator has tried to prematurely turned over the cards.

One part of audience management is to give clear instructions to the spectator. In this routine there is a time when I have put the two black aces in their hands and I don't want them to turn them over before I finish my patter and reveal that the black cards have jumped into my hands. Since they think that I have placed the spade on the bottom of the club, and because the routine requires that I try to help the spectator to get the heavier ace (spade) to jump to the top, I have the spectator place their left forefinger on the top of the two cards. I have them do this because I will have them jerk their hands up and down in an attempt to get the heavier ace to jump to the top—which, of course, happens in my hand. Their cards are red. But having them put their other finger on top keeps them from turning them over. Sometimes they actually ask permission to turn their cards over, after I have revealed the spade on top of the club in my hand.

In any case, after a while, spectators will just stop being contrary, at least in most cases, and it won't be a problem. I think it has something to do with being confident--and very clear in your instructions.

Is there a printed version of Brookke's Versa-Plus available?

Jay Sankey has a couple of very strong card effects that come to my mind - it's Carbon Paper and Penality Box. The first one invovles the scorched card transfers to the spec. card in his/her hand; and the second one is where an apparent selected card by the spec. jumps from the card box to a stack of cards that the spec. is holding.

Dr. Daley isn't bad...

My most often used routine which gets a pretty big reaction is

Omni Deck is Great
I'm not looking to be a big star in magic
and that's working out REALLY good so far.

STOP - Harry Lorayne

You never even touch the cards, yet you reveal the selected card. I love it!!

I second this. Martin Sanderson has a great routine using Omni Deck. However, his routine is where the OD is held by the magician and not the spec.

I do a signed card transposition - that gets the strongest reaction (for me). Both cards are signed, and then they "switch places." The spec is holding their card in between their palms.

Lorayne's Lazy Man's Card Trick is diabolical and fun to do. The spec handles the cards the whole time. Not exactly impromptu but the set up is quick and easy.

Dan Garret has some great in the hands card magic....don't remember the name, but he causes the card to vanish ala rub a dub dub on the back of a spectators hand and appear inside between two aces which were sandwiched previously....Kills! The way the card dissappears into the spectators hand is spooky!

It does not happen in the spectator's hands, but I like Dai Vernon's Triumph effect - it always goes across very weell and once I did it threee times again and still they did not kknow how it was done.


jay sankeys 180 degrees involves the spectator because he can shuffle.

I never figured out the real name of it but on crash course vol 1 the trick is called: here than there. this the most powerful ion the hands trick for them. more impossible to them than 2 card monte for example.
ray cosby's half right is very good too.
