Magic Tricks For The Visually Impaired Part 1 by Dave ArchEver wished you could gain some media coverage for your magic shows while making a substantial contribution to others' lives? Consider teaching magic tricks to the blind. No doubt there's an organization in your area that already serves as a hub for services to the visually impaired. The very concept of blind people and magic catches most people (and the media) off-guard. Yet it's very workable as Dave Arch's experience shows. When you consider the tricks you already know, there are three categories of tricks that work for the visually impaired. There are tricks that the blind can perform for...

The Scissors Race by Dave ArchA little friendly competition between audience members might be just what's needed to add a piece of variety to your show. As two contestants compete in a paper cutting race, the magic starts to happen. Both the contestants and the audience are surprised by the unexpected outcome. Ultimately it ends in a tie. Truly there must be magic in the air.

In addition . . . Dave has added as a bonus another non-magical competition that he used for over a decade to decide who would be given his Giant Balloon Reindeer.

Paper Folding Formula by Dave ArchAlthough this principle has been used to create multiple routines, the formula for creating those routines has not been widely revealed. In its generic form, a piece of paper with multiple pictures, letters, numbers, or words is folded in half multiple times widthwise or lengthwise as determined by the volunteer. After the spectator cuts around the perimeter of the folded packet to form a stack of individual squares, some will be face up in the stack and some face down. As unbelievable as it seems, due to the formula, the magician has complete control over which pieces end up in the face up...

Suzy the Psychic Fish by Dave ArchIf you ever have the occasion to perform by a lake, ocean or river and would like to present a memorable performance piece, you might be happy you've downloaded and read this. The last time the author performed it he was on a pontoon boat in the middle of a lake.

The magician introduces his mind reading fish - swimming unconcerned in a small plastic bag. The fish is released into the water and then performs an extraordinary feat of dramatic mind reading prowess.

Capture the Coin by Dave ArchYou can almost smell the popcorn and hear the screams from the roller coaster as the magician unfolds the game board to demonstrate this seldom seen scam entitled Capture The Coin. With two coins placed on a checkerboard-like mat, the mark attempts to beat the game operator by moving in turn their coins one square at a time. If the mark successfully eludes the operator's coin from catching (moving into the same intersection of the lines as his), the mark wins. If the operator corners the mark's coin and then moves his coin into the same intersection of lines as the mark's coin, the operator...

Tic Tac Toe Top Secret by Dave ArchImagine challenging an entire room of people to simultaneous games of Tic Tac Toe (aka. Noughts and Crosses). Everyone plays against you at the same time, and you boldly state that you will not lose one game in the room. You could even be blindfolded. True to your word you don't lose one of the games.

Although you won't always win (some will be a draw), you won't ever lose when you apply this fool-proof system known to very few.

This is not a gag but rather a proven system for pulling off a demonstration of just what's possible when you commit yourself to consistently work a proven plan. ...

Zingo Bingo by Dave ArchWith thanks to Leo Behnke for the initial concept from his book Corporate Presentations and his permission to share it here, this has proven itself an energy producing closer for many of my corporate shows over the past twenty-five years.

The magician proposes a fun game of Bingo to close his program, and Bingo cards are distributed to everyone in the audience. As the magician hosts the game - drawing and calling the numbers, audience members begin to cross out squares on their Bingo sheets with each person crossing out different squares from those around them. Due to the fact that there are sixteen completely different...

Water Wizardry by Dave ArchThis offering represents a small part of my passionate journey to document just how much entertaining magic can be created with two paper sacks, a bottle of water, and a paper cup. I would feel badly having simple ideas like this one get lost over time under a growing pile of more expensive gimmicks, books, and DVD's. In furtherance of this quest of mine, please also visit my new monthly column Craft Store Magic in The Linking Ring magazine where I document ideas for turning your local craft store into your very own local brick and mortar magic store.

Let's Fake A Deal by Dave ArchAs you might be able to tell from my other writings, I thoroughly enjoy collecting and creating generic methods that are customizable to a wide variety of themes and audiences. Let's Fake A Deal has proven itself on many occasions to fit that description.

Although technically it's a minimal prep and 100% no-sleight method for the classic Bank Night premise, I've customized it through the prizes I give away (and don't give away) and by what I write on the outside of the large #10 business envelopes. I've had single words written on the envelopes, and I've had a phrase written on the envelopes...

Alphabet Soup by Dave ArchMany have seen this classic observation test. The rules are simple. Read through the paragraph in the logo only once - counting the number of F's in the paragraph.

Most will find three F's. Some might even find six. Few will find all of them. And there are some very good reasons for that explained in this release. When understood, you'll be able to create your own paragraph to market your show in a manner that others just might keep to show others.

Under the Spell by Dave ArchMany magicians are familiar with Jim Steinmeyer's most excellent Nine Card Trick. However, not as many are aware of the precursor that used an entire (or nearly full) deck to have various audience members spell personal information and still find the selected card!

My favorite place to use this routine is when sitting at a table when the deck can be passed around the table with up to six different people participating in the process of selecting, losing and then finding the card. Follow the instructions, and the magic works itself.

Electronic Buzz Box by Dave ArchAlthough you can find versions of these Electronic Monte boxes for sale on magic websites, I could not find one large enough for my needs nor one that included a buzzer (not just a light). So I built my own. In spite of the fact that my electronic knowledge only involves the ability to insert a plug into an outlet, I built my own the first time in under an hour for around $20.

The premise is simple. From among multiple buttons, you win if you can find the button that lights the light and sets off the buzzer. With the diagram included in my instructions you aren't limited to only three buttons...

Handwriting Analysis for the Stage by Dave ArchThis offering includes a PowerPoint slideshow, an eighteen-minute video tutorial, and a reproducible handwriting analysis tic sheet. As a result of learning the methods taught, you'll be equipped to guide an entire audience through an analysis of their own handwritings. You can use what you learn from this package as a stand alone presentation, in conjunction with a Q & A routine, and/or use the reproducible tic sheet to offer personal consultations (possibly following your presentation).

My experience has shown that for many of my audiences the subject of handwriting analysis carries greater...

Overhead by Dave ArchNo doubt you've seen "two person telepathy" party stunts where one person leaves the room while the other remains. After coming back into the room, the person is able to discern an object selected by those in the room to the puzzlement of those watching.

This obscure version has one of the partners leave the room and stay in the other room while the remaining partner holds his/her hand above the heads of several people in the room. Each time s/he holds his/her hand above a head s/he repeats the single word "Overhead." Then finally the partner remaining in the room holds his/her hand over...

Houdini Rubber Band by Dave ArchMost magicians are aware of the classic "Jumping Rubber Band Trick." However, here's a script and easy method for a full story routine about the exploits and escapades of that world famous escape artist Harry Houdini who in this case completely disappears from your fingers and reappears where least expected. Included with this routine is the more deceptive technique where the rubber band is "set" using only one hand rather than the customary two-handed "get ready."

Volunteer Game by Dave ArchThe next time you select a volunteer for one of your magic routines, why not play a quick game of chance to decide who the volunteer's going to be? Yet . . . do so with total confidence that the person you want to use in your show is always the one who wins the game.

Here are two different versions where numbered word cards are selected by various members of the audience and then read aloud in numerical order by the audience members. From experience, it is strongly suggested that you consider using both versions in the same show. Both times you use these cards the audience laughs louder...

Scientific Cold Reading 5 by Dave ArchWhereas the previous releases in this series have addressed individual personality traits (#1), managing relational drama (#2), maintaining positive feelings of self worth (#3), and minimizing worry (#4); this module addresses the dynamics of stress and frustration in the life of a sitter. As with the previous ebooks and videos, the reader first draws a picture of what s/he is sensing from the sitter. After seeing the picture, the sitter can then help interpret the drawing - speaking to the specifics of the stressful situation sensed by the reader.

As with the previous releases, the content...
