Which trick to choose.

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by Sully, Jan 17, 2019.

  1. Hello all. I'm a hobbyist, by no means a professional magician. I love the craft and have been collecting tricks of varying tyoe and method for years. When I do perform, it's for family and friends around the holidays. I tend to gravitate towards mentalism and bizarre type routines and effects.

    I will be performing for public for the first time for a talent show for work. I'll have three to four minutes to wow the audience. This will be a stage environment.

    I've been debating back and forth of which routine to go with.

    Option one is a stage version of the zodiab book test with multiple volunteers to choose between the book, page, line, and word.

    The other option is a routine with my spirit bell where I would have the spirits reveal the number of a rolled dice under a cup, and the name of a loved one.

    I've also considered a confabulation, but I'm less certain if this would have an impact.

    This is my first post. I've been lurking the forums for awhile. I love the advice everyone gives.

    Thanks,
    Sully

  2. Hey Sully,

    Both options sound great for a stage performance. I wouldn’t necessarily preference either as they both can be strong effects.

    Let us know how you go, and welcome to the non-lurker side of things!

  3. I think the trick you pick would highly depend on the audience that you're performing for, and which trick would impact them the most. Good luck!
