Repertoire Vol. 2 by Ben Williams
Repertoire Volume 2 is quite unsurprisingly my second instalment of my Repertoire series. Expect more workable routines that suit pretty much any environment. Here is a list of the effects that will be unleashed!
POPOMOWA – PoPoMoWa stands for pocket, pocket, mouth, wallet. This is a face paced misdirectional card routine where the spectator’s signed card is first found in your… well you get the idea! Optional extras will be suggested for different routining.
SANDWICH FEAST – This is a sandwich routine that each phase you are one step ahead of them. 3 cards are selected and lost back in the pack. Two kings then find them each separately. This routine is also built to have as much happen in the spectator’s hands as possible.
SPECTATOR LOCATER – This is another multi selection routine. Two cards are selected and lost back into the deck. A third card is selected to be the spectator locater card. This is vanished from the top of the deck in the spectators hands. The deck is spread and the two cards surrounding the spectator locater card are the first and second selections.
COLD AND LONELY – Cold and Lonely is my take on the Anniversary Waltz routine. A card is selected from a red deck and signed across its back, this is placed face up in the spectator’s palms. Another card is selected and is signed across its face. When the two touch you show you now have their signature on the back! The original selection however has been left alone so long it feels all cold and lonely and when turned over it has a blue back!
PEEK DRIBBLE SELECTION – This is a simple peek you can use when having the cards dribbled for a selection.
PEEK RIFFLE KEY CARD – This is a use of a peek I had come up with independently but upon further research I found it to have been in print previously in the, you guessed it Royal Road to Card Magic! Bummer, they just pipped me to the post! I explain a nice workers routine using the peek to peek a key card.
CARD TO SPECTATOR’S WALLET – This is an interesting idea or concept I have played around with. It is a mystery card routine that culminates in you pulling the spectator’s signed card from their wallet. This routine works so well sometimes that I have actually left the signed selection in their wallet for them to discover later!
ON BACK – This is exactly what it sounds like, it is a method for getting your spectator’s signed card stuck to their back, this also works well with business cards!
THREE FREE RIDES – 3 Free Rides is a multi selection effect where you proceed to find three spectators cards. These then vanish from the top of the deck and are found in the spectator’s pocket.
SLEIGHTLY CONFUSED (Signed and Unsigned) – Sleightly Confused is a TnR routine in which you never see the card being ripped. A signed selection (signed across its back), is lost in the deck and the deck is then placed back into the box which the spectator holds onto. The magician then mimes tearing the card and pieces of a playing card are produced from thin air that match the spectator’s selection. These are then handed to the spectator who squeezes onto them when their hand is opened the pieces are healed, the card is unfolded and the spectator’s signature is found on the back.
SIGNED AND DATED – Signed and Dated is another off the wall TnR effect similar to Sleightly Confused but crazily enough the pieces of a selection are produced invisible then dusted off where they then become visible? Eh? I know! Each piece becomes visible when it is healed back to the card. after every production and appearance the card is shown both back and front. There is a nice kicker ending once the card is restored.
