Get ready to dance with your cards!
The Third Attribute. A thought-of card effect that seems like real mind-reading. Did I mention you need not touch the cards?
That Flippin’ Contest. A nice follow-up to The Third Attribute effect. A version of the classic “Sloppy Triumph” effect adds an element of relaxed comedy.
52! This number represents the number of ways a full deck of 52 cards can be organized (more ways than the number of stars in the known universe). The spectator then makes several decisions based upon cards selected which ultimately leads her to a final selection. Despite the enormity of the odds, you have predicted this selection.
The (Un)Usual Suspects. “Card calling” routines are numerous and while the method described here is as old as the hills, this effect, where you name the cards selected by five volunteers, is as fresh as tomorrows’ news.
Occupation Hazard. A bit of black comedy in this routine that uses not playing cards, but cards on which you’ve written names of occupations that nobody ever wants. The routine is framed as an employment aptitude test and your assistant somehow manages to select the job that doesn’t involve anything grisly!!
The Wry Detector. This is my take on the classic “lie detector” routine. A card is selected and your volunteer can choose to lie or tell the truth about the three attributes of the selection. You have a little gadget though that not only helps you correctly identify the “real” selection but causes the “lied-about” card to turn over in an unused deck!
Unmarked Cards. One of my favorite openers. A spectator draws any card thought of on a blank card. Suddenly the blank deck from which the card was originally taken becomes fully printed and the spectator’s hand-drawn card lays between card with the same suit and same value.
My Favorite Things. You show a selection of coins and your helper examines then selects any one. Similarly, she selects a playing card and signs its face. Why is the coin your “favorite”? When turned over, it now bears a mini version of the selected card ... along with the spectator’s signature!
My Birthday Card. A self-working take on the classic “diary effect” made much more personal. And funny! Plus, a section on some great subtleties and “pro-tips,” and several of my favorite non-move moves!
“Michael provides recognizable forms for the simplicity and cleverness of the methods to secretly nourish the engaging and amusing themes he has chosen to anecdotally share—not as tricks per se but as congenial curiosities...which is a difference that truly makes a difference!”
Thank you! Thank you!
I have only read the first trick - I love it!
The patter and procedure is great. I can’t wait to find the time to get into more.
The first [thing] that strikes me is your excellent writing and clarity of description. Really impressive! The tricks look great …
I got back to Bangkok the other day and finally had a chance to read your new book and, damn, what a great book it is. I knew I was in for a treat as soon as I saw the clever cover.
"The Third Attribute" is my kind of effect (I'm also an "Emotional Reaction" fan), and "That Flippin' Contest" as a tandem effect makes the two together a great routine for those who want to shuffle the cards before you do anything.
I was quite surprised to see my name linked with Liam Montier in "Occupation Hazard." I'm also happily surprised that it turned out to be such a great trick, especially for those who want to briefly get away from cards in performing their repertoire….
I'm most impressed with "Unmarked Cards," which I think is simply your best and most inventive effect.…
Finally, I'm in complete agreement with your thinking behind "My Birthday Card." Jack McMillen's "Mirror of the Mind" is one of those effects which for the past few years I've been trying to come up with my own impromptu version. I very much like what you've done with it. You've made it into a stand-alone effect in which if anyone asked you to do just one card trick for them, they come away not only baffled but they come away with an emotional experience they will not forget. I hope your readers will appreciate the value of this kind of routine, because it is what magic is all about.
You've done a great job, my friend. Congratulations.
