This answer is different for everyone based on performance style and skill level.

Here are five from my regular close-up routine:

• Ashes to Arm
• Vox Box
• Ring Leader
• Haunted Key
• Fork Bending

Sponge Balls, Freakey, Hot Rod, Coin Matrix, Gemini Pouch and 3 Card Monte are also strong considerations.


George, I LOVE Haunted Key. Here's my 5...

-Las Vegas Leaper
-Ambitious Card
-Spongeball Routine
-Haunted Key
-One-Coin Routine (my own cocktail)

-JT

DerZauberer, I'm sure I already know the answer, but just for kicks: The Vox Box is 95% sleight of hand and 5% the extra effect from the box, right?

That's a leading question bordering on asking for exposure.

Well, I won't expose the secret, but it's just a performance accessory. The magic is all sleight-of-hand; but the reactions are quite strong.

1. Twisted Sisters
2. Ring Leader
3. Ambitious Card
4 Color Monte
5. Two Dollar Window

I just added Two Dollar Window to my favorite list recently - I get great reactions from this simple trick and it is easy to carry around.

Alright, thanks.

And Fridjid, I believe that it's fairly obvious upon first viewing the preview video what's going on, so it's not really exposure.

So, I'm confused. If it's fairly obvious, why was there need to post a question about it? :?
