Rock On – Jon Racherbaumer – January 2011

Tony Slydini consults with a young Jon Racherbaumer Some gimmicked cards have a sporadic life. They come on the scene, arouse interest for a time, and then fade from view. Such a gimmicked card is the Acrobatic Card, a card with a tensile, longitudinal half-flap that folds over from side-to-side. It is like the spring-flap […]

Personally Speaking – Jan08 – Part 3

QUICK DEPARTURE This uses similar techniques to achieve a slightly different end. Ask someone to choose either the Red or Black Kings. Suppose the Red Kings are chosen. Place them face up onto the face-up Black Kings and place all four onto the face of the deck. Lift three Kings from the face with your […]

Personally Speaking – Jan08 – Part 2

Speaking of "Snow White," there is a scene in that film where Snow White is standing beside a well explaining to a flock of doves about a wishing well. She demonstrates how it works, then we see her from the bottom of the well, right through the water. We see her face, shimmering in the […]

Paul Cummins – Counting On It

Aldo Colombini – Trifleby Aldo Colombini

Columnist: Aldo Colombili Trifle by Aldo Colombini Trifle by Aldo Colombini Frankly speaking, I still like Packet Tricks very much and this is one of my favorites. To me, they are fun to do, relatively easy in many cases and strong in impact. This routine is a non-faked version of Max Maven’s B-Wave and Twisted […]

Aldo Colombini – Serenade

Columnist: Aldo Colombili Inspired by Peter Kane’s Jazz Aces (as many others have been as well), this is a multi-effect routine. It is impromptu and, I think, very strong. It also appeared in one of my videotapes as well as in Harry Lorayne’s APOCALYPSE but it is being reprinted here because I felt that the […]

Aldo Colombini – Nobody At Home

Columnist: Aldo Colombili I think this is a showy routine, full of magic and I am very fond of it. It was published in Linking Ring Magazine (my third Parade, October 1994.) The approach is at least a different one, giving to the Assembly Type routine the variation of using a progressive theme. EFFECT: The […]
