Ten new packet tricks with regular cards and totally impromptu.
CONTENTS AND CONTRIBUTORS:
- THE FIRST HOTEL MYSTERY (Nick Trost): Two Queens are placed side by side and four Kings are added to each Queen to form two three-card packets. At the end, the Queens and the Kings are found in separate piles.
- ALTERNATING CURRENT (Norman Houghton): Four cards are placed face down and four face-up cards are placed on top. The cards magically alternate: Face up and face down.
- DAZZLER MARK ONE MILLION (Paul Gordon): Some cards are shuffled face up and face down and six cards are remembered by the spectators. These cards at the end are the only ones remaining face up capturing five cards: A Royal Flush.
- AUTO GAMBLER (Karl Fulves): A four-of-a-kind is found from a shuffled packet of cards. Easy to do and stunning.
- OVER UNDER SPELL (Jack Avis): The four Jacks are lost in a packet of twelve cards and they are found one by one with a surprise ending.
- THE PEAK (Aldo Colombini): The four Queens and the four Kings are shuffled together but the spectators manage to reunite each ‘couple’ (Spades with Spades, Hearts with Hearts, etc.).
- NAME IT (Joe Riding): From a packet of ten cards you reveal a freely selected one.
- THREE TO TWO POKER (Howard Adams): A strange Poker game. Two spectators select three cards each leaving you with two cards. Still, you have the highest hand.
- BLACK SEPTEMBER (Peter Duffie): Two red Kings with a red Ace between them and two black Kings with a black Ace between them. The two selected Kings rise magically from bottom to top and at the end the two Aces switch their positions.
- BOP ACES (Max Maven): An elaboration on Peter Kane’s “Jazz Aces” where the Aces switch positions with four indifferent cards.
