" ... You find my card." lol
I love to do card magic, I avoid Pick a card tricks to the best extent I can, unless they have strong endings like Eddie Fechter's "That's it." or "Triumph". Otherwise i go with 4 ace tricks, or packet tricks.
"Wrong. Actually, your card gets lost in the deck for all eternity wandering th void with but a single glowing ember to light it's path. . . I'm sorry, what where we talking about?"
You avoid tricks that involve picking a card? Like ACR's, the biddle trick, and nearly every other card effect on earth?
I avoid the * Fan out pack with cards face down..* Pick a Card...any card..." effects. Unless They have strong endings like " Triumph " or " That's it."
From your listing it seems you have BTPCM, I may be wrong. The reason I infer that is because you mention " The Biddle trick" BTPCM may give the impression that almost every card effect out there is ' Pick a card."
I can do 20 to 30 minutes of routine with cards without doing any " Pick a card " effects. I assure you that there are a LOT of plots out there, besides the " pick a card " plot.
You can do 30 minutes easy with just " 4 ace production" effects "4 ace assemblies." then add transposition tricks... Add to that solid through solid card effects. "Gemini Twins" is not pick a card. " Jumping Gemini" is not pick a card. "Card Warp" is not pick a card. "MacDonald's Aces"...etc.. I can go on and on. See the thing is...even if 80 % of card effects are " pick a card" if there are 1000 different card effects out there, that means you have 200 that are NOT " pick a card". See? it's just a matter of looking.
I do not consider "ACR" or " Your Signed card" ( another excellent non " pick a card" effect.) to be " pick a card " effects because it is not based on losing then locating an unknown selected card. You freely turn the deck face up... you ask them to sign it openly. You are working with a Unique card.
As I said, I avoid "pick a card" effects. To the spectator they all look the same. They do not care which way you shuffled the deck, which way you cut the deck, or which way you finally produce the selected card. To a spec they all look the same.
I realize now why we are having trouble understanding each other. Sorry had a blond moment. What I think of as a "pick a card" trick is not one where the spectator selects a card. I say "Pick a card" specifically for the cliched " * fan cards upside down.." Picka card any card.." lose card in deck...shuffle ,...cut... then find card in some way." thing.
I will do "card to pocket, purse, shoe...bra... stocking" when my palming gets better. But It's not just picking a card that is what i refer to as " pick a card."
