Re: Card Tricks for a Work Meeting

if you feel confident giving clear instructions and that he audience will reasonably attempt to follow them, you might check out the audience interactive cars trick from the woody Aragon book. everyone is involved in the trick (the ny team will need a pack) and it's pretty perplexing. Here's a vide...

Re: Card Tricks for a Work Meeting

However, maybe in your work environment you could pull it off, just don't make the mistake of believing that when someone asked you to perform one day means that your manager and you colleagues are really interested. Maybe they were just being polite. Don't worry - I'm not the kind of person who re...

Re: Card Tricks for a Work Meeting

Do only one routine and make it into a miracle. I suggest the Brainwave or Invisible deck where the people across the Atlantic make the decisions on which card to use, one chooses the colour, one the suit, and one the value. The deck is in full view the whole time. And the people around the table a...

Re: Card Tricks for a Work Meeting

That said, I would advise cutting your proposed routine way down. If your coworkers are anything like me, they want any business meeting to be over as soon as possible. In such a setting, any perceived undue impediments to that end goal can be rather unwelcome. Too true. Perhaps one impressive feat...

Re: Card Tricks for a Work Meeting

Perhaps not precisely point on based on your question, but were it me, I'd probably opt for a mentalism routine with cards rather than pure sleight of hand. That's taken my thinking in a different direction - thank you. I know Tamariz has a routine, I think it's 'Answering Machine', that centres on...

Card Tricks for a Work Meeting

Hi everyone, I'm sure the question of magic in the workplace has come up in the past. Forgive me for re-visiting the topic (I did search first, honest). At a recent team meeting I happened to mention that I dabble in a little card magic and was subsequently made to promise to bring a deck to the nex...

Ricky Jay - Card Flying Move

Hello everyone, Long time lurker, infrequent poster. :) I wonder if someone could point me in the right direction for a reference to the move Mr Jay uses in the following clip at around the 02:10 mark? I'm sure I've read about it before but numerous Google searches (and, indeed, searches of this for...

Re: Gemini Twins

Just because you're having trouble learning doesn't mean that you shouldn't stay on track. Yes, I've been thinking about that. It's not a far reach to 'method vs effect'. I'm aware of what's taught on ETMCM (though not that it originated with Falanga) and will admit that it's been niggling at me wh...

Gemini Twins

Hello everyone, Have a brief question regarding the Gemini Twins routine as described in Brother John's book (searched the forum before I posted but didn't come across anyone who had asked this particular question before - apologies if that's not the case). Chasing authenticity I decided to try and ...
