Mike Borenstein had an effect where a bill changes into a minature card case that is opened to reveal that a mentally selected card is reversed in the miniature deck.

Chuck Fayne has a bit of work with this, including an effect in which the spectator selects and signs a card and it shrinks, quite clever, sounds better in a dealers add, haven't tried it.

I use to do a thing from David Regal all the time. It's called Small Thinker and is in Star Quality by Harry Lorayne. It's a cool and easy shrinking deck routine.

The effect is KILLER.
It is so simple to do also.
Definetly get the Sankey DVD to learn it and the patter.
I am working on amethod where card case is inspected after cards are removed and spectator can peek in case to actualy see a card inside and even close the flap.

Profile of dam0n far from what I've read..Mini decks/black mini decks aren't air cushioned?

Anyone tried farrowing them before?

It'd be helpfull to learn what are some of the common sleights that are "do-able" with a mini deck...

LOL you could probably do an erdnase shift with two fingers... IT would be funny to see someone do a HOT SHOT cut.

I use a mini-deck as a lead-in to my magician's insurance policy when performing for kids. I pick a volunteer and have them stay in the audience at first. I grab the small deck, fan it a little and ask the volunteer if they can see each card OK. The volunteer usually shouts "No" (There are ways around if they don't), and so I say, "oops, I forgot, here you need to put these on" and I toss a wrapped bundle to the volunteer. In the package is a giant clown pair of sunglasses. The misdirection is huge. As soon as the glasses are on, I hold up the jumbo deck I have switched-to and ask "How does it look now?". This is so simple, but gets giggles and gasps. Then we go on to the insurance policy.

At the end of the Paul Harris effect, Immaculate Connection, I am left holding 3 loops of cards, which I just handed out for examination. While the spectators were examining them, I finger palmed 3 duplicate minis folded in half (yes, I force one of the 3 used in the routine, and a 1 out of 3 classic force is wonderfully satisfying). Upon retrieving the loops, I fold them in quarters and the size is then equal to the folded minis, which are switched out via any number of ways. I now close the routine by making a 'magical gesture' over the minis in my closed fist (which they assume are the folded loops) and reveal the restoration in mini fashion. I state that if I do this effect enough times I'll have enough cards to make a mini deck.

I got tired of laughing off the frequent request to restore the loops at the end. That was an all too common 'problem' for me and the IC ending so this was my solution and the only way I end IC.
