Scripted #7: Solution 6 by Larry Brodahl

A reworking of the 6 Card Repeat like none other. Using no gimmicked cards, the trick has a funny and visual plot, and for once a true climax.

Are you looking for a methodology and script for the 6 Card Repeat that steps outside the usual plot of "I saw a guy count 1,2,3,4,5,6 cards, throw away 1,2,3 and he still had 6 cards"?

Because let's face it, the story is silly, doesn't have any spectator 'hook' nor does it have a recognizable climax beyond the weak ending of "And I still don't know how he did it."

Scripted #14: The Penrose Knot by Larry Brodahl

The Penrose knot has never been clearly explained until now. A strange effect that is not only made fun by the supplied script, but an "in the hands" tying method is revealed.

The magician ties a rope into a chain of 30 knots. Each knot appears identical.

The spectator grabs one of the knots. The magician now pulls on the ends of the rope, and every knot dissolves - except - the knot the spectator selected. That knot proves to be a common overhand knot.

The Penrose knot was published in Karl Fulves' Self Working Rope Tricks, but the description was less-than-clear, and the effect is quite strange. ...
