Trick of the month- February 2012

Issue 4 of Steven Hamiltons Profile Magazine contains a superb Paul Wilson trick – “Randall Flagg”. Basically it’s a card at number routine where the spectator freely stops at 3 cards which are added and the card found at that number. This is done from a shuffled deck. The handling is very causal and excellently constructed. It almost has a Dani DaOrtiz feel about it – that impromptu jazz style in which you have to think a bit yet give the spectator a lot of freedom of choice – this leads to a total fooler. Anyone who has the magazines is urged to re-read this issue which also contains a great trick by Jerry Sadowitz.

    Seriously? Is there anything more dull for a layman than adding up card values and then counting down… snore. Me thinks you need to take your magician goggles off for this one…

    Good mags though.

      It depends how it’s presented I think. When I read it it reminded me of some of Dani DaOrtiz’s effects which involve numbers and counting, albeit not with 3 numbers but done at a fast pace I think this would work. As with most things – you’ll only know if it works if you try it. Try it I will and it may be that you’re right, but maybe not. Yeah, they’re great – Opus was incredible also.

    Then let’s just do the 21 card trick…
