Contents of Percolations
Two volunteers sync up perfectly and somehow locate a co-memorized (yet never physically selected) card.
An inverted three-card monte style routine that naturally progresses toward a stunning flash wild card kicker.
A streamlined elaboration on Ken Beale’s waiting-on-a-friend, classic-in-the-throes “Take Nine”.
Max Mavenesque wordplay of the highest order. A 1966 underground radio playlist predicts the future in delightfully byzantine fashion.
A volunteer mixes and freely trades cards, unwittingly leading themselves toward a Ramasee-style burst of astonishment without any of the Ramasee-style procedure required.
What does the card magic world not have enough of? Sandwich effects. There are only about 1,200 to choose from. This one though is virtually instantaneous and an absolute blast to master.
A genuinely entertaining Triumph-style routine with an equally genuine face-up/face-down mix complemented by a stunning color-changing deck kicker. Ends as clean as a whistle. No deck switch in sight.
A finger-friendly approach to culling up to eight cards, a bold subtlety for ascertaining the identity of an imagined card, and a strategy for coaxing a pre-written three-card prediction directly from a deck of cards. It’s all here!
Obfuscation, Transparency & Intensity
Thoughts on method’s oft-maligned role in magical performance, and guidelines for its proper evaluation.
Bonus Section: An Inconsistent Fooling
A modern reworking of Roy Walton’s brilliant “An Illogical Conclusion”.
