Hey genius3232.
I'm asking what your routines are and I can't do that.
Now you are doing it pracitcaly.
My post in the restaurant section was just meant as your post here.


No hes not. Do you not know what the difference is between individual effects and a routine?

:roll:

Oh and kraynik, hes not the only one that asks for help, so drop it. If hes lazy then more than half the posters here are lazy. (which is probably correct, but I dont see you jumping on every one else.)
Didnt you also join this site to help and learn? :roll:

Yes, I'm willing to help those who are responsible enough to research before they ask for help.

Genius, do you have Bobo's modern coin magic? If not, pick that up before buying any other tricks. It will be very useful to you.

Check their forks, if their dominions, bend them.

Be prepared to pay the restaurant for their forks.

So you're saying that you cannot find coin tricks in magic stores? Even though coin magic is one of the biggest categories of conjuring?

Sorry, but I still don't buy your excuses.


just end it, sorry if you feel this way give me a list of some tricks or just leave this topic plan and simple.


Although I don't work restaurants, I'm more than happy to help! All of these tricks are in Bobo MCM:

Gadabout coins
Three and Three
Winged Silver
Copper to Silver transpos
Coin through table

Work up a one coin routine. I started with the one in the ITBTWC DVD, added a couple moves from Bobo MCM and added a couple of my touches and build a routine out of the coin having a bad odor (after making it appear from my armpit :) )

If your restaurant has napkins, there is a whole bunch of good napkin tricks.

I would echo the post about some people not liking to touch money. You're not understanding. Coins are notoriously filthy and teeming with bacteria. Some people would rather not handle coins before they eat. Remember your mom telling you to wash your hands before dinner :P

Personally, it doesn't bother me but I like building up my immune system with a good heathly dose of coin germs!

Most coin tricks would work ok for that type of situation, but any coin trick where the person needs to touch the coin is an absolute waste of time for the two reasons already mentioned, first of all they will or might have food on their hands, and secondly they will not want to touch germ ridden money when they are about to eat. But the way the majority of coin tricks are makes them a good choice to use for close-up, especially since the majority of coin tricks are ungimmicked, which is also a HUGE advantage to you, as you don't have to go waste time resetting gimmicks.

a coin through table would make sense in a a restaurant setting, your all smart enough to work that out, and everyone loves a coins across.
