Ok, so I put together a total of 6 routines. I don't have all the patter down yet but I'm working really hard.

These are the routines:

1. (Gambling Routine)
Color Deception Brass
Clor Monte
(since both of thes take such a long time I figured that I don't need anothe trick, of course if you have another opinion I'm glad to hear it.)

2. (Routine for a family with children who are more than 10)
Grafitti
Cut here
ACR that ends with paperclipped

3. (Don't know which like this, it's like an allround routine. Not shure if I should add another trick into the routine)
Billswitch (with a specs bill and make a joke of it, quite long trick)
Invisible deck with normal presentation

4. (Another allround routine)
Leaving home
Bodyguards by Jay Sankey
Billswitch from no card tricks (with ripped corner)

5. (Routine for table with alot of children)
Appearing and vanishing silk
Stealth pen
(maybe the floating dollar bill)
color deception brass

6. (adult routine, mostly mentalism)
Drowsing by Jay sankey
Blind date by Jay sankey
Twisted sisters


Tell me what you think about this. Anything that I should add/take away. Anything that wont flow in a good way? All help is appreciated!

not very many of those routines really flow. an example is in ur gambling routine. its not really going to be an easy transition from color deception brass to color monte. another example: fifth routine you go from stealth pen to color deception. not great transitions. finally, you seem to be willing to learn so i'll save you from paddy's brutal honesty (and also save paddy the work) by saying eliminate the gimmicks.

You need to have excellent and fluid flowing patter to go with these routines. People make the mistake of piecing routines together without thinking about how they will present them. You need more than a theme (gambling) you need transitions from one to the next. They should be linked and memorized so that if you have to stop, (the food arrives) you can pick right up at another table. Make sure your effect logically flow from one to the next.

At tables with kids I must agree vainishing silk works well because it is easy to follow
Also with kids I find they love magic coloring book and that goes well with the vainishing crayons

DO SPONGEBALLS not only do kids love them (this might contridict what others say) but adults love them too. I did a routine with spongeballs at a party (non-paying) Then People would call me over just to do spongeballs. Add it too your routine. Also if you are doing table hopping get rid of most of the gimmicks (not all). Pen through and stuff can stay though. Hopefully this helps :D

Jag-- 6 Routines is the minimum you should have. You need to make sure you can transition with effects. That would be my only concern. Check out my earlier posts. This gives an example of how I flow from one effect to the next.

Good Luck,
