Two of Simon’s newest routines, from Try the Impossible.
O’Aronson Aces is an Ace Assembly, presented as a lesson
in card cheating – but with a surprise "O’Henry" ending when all
four Aces assemble under the spectator’s own hand!
Nosnora Aces relates a magician’s "dream": the
performer illustrates his dream of performing a perfect Ace Assembly, but of
course, at the climax he admits he "woke up" – and it was all just
a dream, as the Aces instantly revert back to their original packets!
In both routines, the Aces are seen to arrive one at a
time in the leader packet, with no palming and no extra cards! Just some
special gaffs combined with some of the most subtle handling you’ve ever
seen, to create effects that look like real magic.
Cards Only (for both routines): for those
who already have Try the Impossible. Only $10.00.
Red See Passover
the Ultimate Thought-of Card Across!
"Red See Passover is one of
the five strongest card tricks you can do, for anyone."
— Michael Close
Two spectators, Ginny and Dave, are asked to help with an
experiment involving two decks of cards, one red-backed and one blue. Both
decks are shuffled, and each spectator takes one. The spectators themselves
each deal 12 cards face down from their respective decks. The rest of the
cards are placed aside. No extra or additional cards are used.
The red cards are openly and deliberately fanned so that
Ginny can see all of the faces, and she is asked to merely think of one card.
The fan is closed and tabled, and Ginny places her hand on top of this red
packet. The packet of blue cards is then spread once more to show it only
contains blue-backed cards, and Dave places his hand on this blue packet.
Ginny concentrates on her mental selection. She then
removes her hand from the red pile and she counts her cards face down – there
are now only 11! Dave likewise counts the cards in his blue pile. He finds
that there are now 13 and one of them has a red back!
The 11 red cards are then turned face up and all are
fanned in front of Ginny. She is asked whether her mental selection is still
there, and she finds it has vanished. Finally, the red card in the middle of
the blue packet is removed and shown to be Ginny’s mental selection.
Only minimal sleight-of-hand required. The 12 custom-made,
special gaffed cards do all the work! With completely updated instructions.
