Nice Try, Sucker - Weekly Recap

Posted on December 13, 2013 by Chris Ballinger There have been 3 comment(s)

This week we talked a little bit about "Sucker Magic".

There literally are boxes everywhere at Magic Geek right now. We have huge shipments coming in and even more smaller packages (your orders) leaving the warehouse every day! We really enjoy the excitement that the holidays bring to our shipping department and consider it an honor to be a part of your gift-giving process.

The sandwich-monte-style-trick that I went over briefly in the Recap was using the gimmick from my top-selling trick The Shark.

We also talked about the Sharpie Through Card or STC. This is a very well-made gimmick that offers several different super-visual penetration routines.

A few people asked about last week's Weekly Recap. I taught a little move where you vanish a ring tied to a string. Unfortunately, there were a few elements which weren't covered in detail. So this week I went over the knot move and gave two sources for the "Cross Over Move": Mark Wilson's Complete Course in Magic and Gregory Wilson's Ring Leader.

Don't forget to enter to win one of the five sets of Cups and Balls with the massive instructional DVD. This set will take you from beginner to advanced very quickly in one of the most iconic tricks in magic. Enter as many times as you would like to up your chances of winning one of these handsome sets.
