Well I don't want this to happen to me again. I showed my family a few tricks, then a little close up routine and then a few more tricks. After a while I started to run out. I have more but theyve all seen it in the past. What should I do?

The first answer that came to mind is stop showing them tricks. If you've shown them everything you can do, you either have to learn more, use the knowledge that you have and do some improv magic, or stop showing them tricks.

Yes, I did stop, but they kept asking for more. What should I do from there? Say something like 'Ahh, I need a break. Why don't you do something spectacular?' Just an example I guess.

If you just want something to say, then look at the "don't repeat a trick" threads for good one liners.

never show everything you got in one performance! you need to leave them wanting to see more.in my opinion a short performance has a muchbetter effect on audiences.

Whenever My family and friends ask to see a trick...they get ONE!

And by the time I run out, not that it's very likely that it'll happen, but if I do, I can just start over because it was 10 years or so since they saw the first one.

It's much better to do the same 8-10 effects for 1000 different people, than to do 1000 different effects for the same 8-10 people.

have a little routine down

like i always do

biddle-version of a sandwich effect- ACR-then have a another spec pick a card for a transpo of the 2 cards- force another card and mind read, end with the sandwhich with the card i just mind read between the 1st and 2nd card

this way i know when to stop

and can stop at any point

this is my basic card routine, i use other tricks though :D
