Contents (updated Oct 2015)
5 Twelve Cards to Pocket: one of the finest tricks because it can
be presented so many different ways. Here Buckingham uses a
volunteer assistant and two props every magician owns. Very good!
11 Super Do As I Do-in: the "super" Buckingham version.
13 The Palmist: is a fun making, audience participation routine.
17 Showers of Pips: is a spectacular idea based on a Southall trick, here perfected by Buckingham.
22 Coins and Cards: gives you a "one simple sleight" routine you will use because it is so easy to do
24 A Blindfold Card Stab Miracle: : is puzzling, dramatic, done anywhere, any conditions, angle proof.
29 A Gambling Legend: is a new dramatic presentation of an exciting routine. Great for close up TV.
