Here are two effects that use easy-to-make gimmicks which can be added to your regular deck.
FLASHPOINT is a sensational card routine with a topological flavor. Two cards, an Ace and a King, magically change places. The performer offers to repeat the effect under more stringent conditions. The King is placed on the table and covered with the performer's wallet. The Ace is placed between two blank cards. The Ace is visible through two holes cut in the middle of the blank cards yet, at the performer's command, it instantly and visibly disappears. When the wallet is lifted from the table the Ace is found underneath with the King.
RESTLESS involves four ordinary cards from the deck and four blank cards. The ordinary cards are dealt face down onto the table and the blank cards are held in the hands. One by one the blank cards change into duplicates of the tabled cards and then just as mysteriously revert to blanks. At the finish there is an unexpected kicker ... the tabled cards are turned over and they too are now blank, the four printed cards have disappeared entirely.
Double Indemnity features two extraordinary effects. The instructions are in an easy to understand step-by-step format, complete with presentation guidance and are fully illustrated.
