The Magic Memories (133)

Hello everyone!

Today’s topics are: Another trick problem.

These are The Magic Memories 133, gone online Sunday, July 16th, 2023, at 0:07h sharp.

All The Magic Memories from 2021, 2022, including the Magic Advent Calendar from 2020, can be found HERE.

I’m back from Luxemburg and Valladolid, but for the past few days have already been in the Austrian Alps, far behind Innsbruck, in the beautiful Zillertal, performing and teaching magic at the Adler Inn in Hintertux at the Hintertuxer Zaubertage – will tell you more upon my return in The Magic Memories 134.

Below is a souvenir photo from a past edition (2017) – you can see me in the action of teaching “Dice and Aces” from Sharing Secrets (p. 91).

Meanwhile, here is something for you to ponder…

Yet Another Trick Problem

When I was in my teens, one of the magical pleasures was to read the ads in the magic magazines, and to then try to find out how it could be done. Anyone from the pre-Internet era knows what I mean 🙂

Here is an ad from an old magazine (can’t remember which one…) which I found in one of my notebooks, with an interesting double-effect.

Can you find a practical method?

  1. One using tricks cards, as the advertised version suggests…
  2. …  and another with a regulation deck?

Wish you all an excellent week!
