Adding to Kevin_Donelle2's post (It's are practically all card stuff!) : Invisible deck, Twisted Sisters, Brainwave, Card-Toon 1 and 2, Svengali deck, Bite Out Quarter, Sneak-a Peek, Special Delivery, FadeOut, Impossible Twist, Red Hot Mamacita, Matrix, Impossible Matrix, and too many more. LOL I'm done.


How is Matrix Not examinable? it uses 4 soins, 4 cards, nothing more, nothing less.

normally people try to challenge you when there are other people around to "show off" too, this works, but only in a group situation

...make a joke or sarcastic comment especailly something that makes fun of that spectator in a friendly manner.... it takes the focus off the item and on to them, and mildly indicates that they shouldnt try that again....

Simple for me. Unless examination is part of the trick, I do not let them examine anything after the trick is done. If I let them examine the cards after a non gimicked trick but will not let them after one that is, then they can figure them out by themselves.

When they ask to see the cards (or other props) I say no and move ont o another trick. Yes, they will assume that it was a trick deck, but they go into the trick assuming that anyway.

Just put it away. You'd be surprised how much that works. Keep the routine flowing and don't give them a chance to even ask.

Change the subject or find a good production trick to direct them away from your hand.

Well as you know I always hold a dagger in one hand while performing.

I just say, "Please don't examine." For some weird reason they listen.

Seriously:

I just attack them.

Seriously seriously:

I do an inside joke, saying "Are you a master debator?" and then asking "Which hand is your dominant hand?" Most will get it. :D

I also end always with something that involves a vanish of the item (Yes I vanish decks of cards) and so there's nothing to examine.

But what I like to do is if they ask, just say, "no I'll do it one more time" then do the trick again which will usually satisfy them, if not then decline. Say "sorry, but that's not part of the trick" or something and stuff it in your pocket. lol. Just make a little joke of it.


You should never repeat a trick! One of the biggest rules of magic.

I am not sure of the best way to keep a spectator from examining one of my un-examinable tricks? I have tried silly things like "the magic will rub off" but this never seems to work and I usually have to just say no, which makes them suspicious.

Any Ideas?


Gimme an example of a trick that involves a prop that can't be examined.


A TT, jk. :lol:

Do dean dill's thing. If they ask to examine it, or when he offers to have it examined, and the person holds out their hand, he pulls back and says "thank you," then continues.
