There are 3 methods for this effect, 2 impromptu and 1 gimmicked. Enjoy
So here is my entry into the contest, my apologies ahead of time for nonsense blabbering, its almost 11 am by me now and I have been up since 4 yesterday due to my job and shows. Essentially a burned and restored card but everything is examineable at the end. I was trying to show that you can show all cards through out the pack. Thanks again and best wishes to the winner
Hi, I didn't think any of my existing tricks would fool you guys so started from scratch. I put down my deck of cards and grabbed a pack of crisps : ) Thanks for giving it a look, I really enjoyed having to create at such a fast pace. Cheers.
No Wires, Magnets, Threads, Weights, or Blowing. Grab coin and try to do it with me, you'll quickly find that it's impossible until you know the secret. Once you know the secret you will be able to do it immediately. I even let you see it from behind in the mirror.
This is my closing routine for the Magic Castle Junior Program brunches. I highly doubt it will fool anyone watching because you are magicians, I have no misdirection while doing the secret moves as I do when I am performing live, but I do hope you understand the deception of the trick. While being completely blindfolded (The spectator can EXAMINE the blindfold), the magician never says a word. I believe this trick speaks for itself and doesn't need a presentation.The magician shuffles the deck and first produces a 2 of spades. He makes a gesture along the table foreshadowing that he will attempt to find all the other spades in order. With more shuffles and cuts, he does the impossible. Each being more impressive than the rest, the magician finds each spade in a unique fashion (For the 8 of spades, normally a spectator would touch a card and that would be it, and for the 10 through King, they would cut the cards into the 4 packets). Upon finding the last spade, that being the Ace of Spades, the audience cannot help but feel that the trick is over. The magician take off his blindfold and show that the rest of the cards have separated into order among their suits. I apologize that during the performance you cannot see my face with the blindfold. This is due to the fact that if I were to raise the camera so that you could see it, you would't be able to see the cards and productions. You'll have to trust me that it was on.
This is my version of the production of spades with a kicker ending. It is directly inspired from Gregory Wilson's and Lennart Green's version of this effect. I hope you enjoy my performance!
