2007

  • Genii, September, 2007 • David Acer's "Up In Smoke," a coin vanish intended for impromptu situations when you dig a coin out of your pocket (e.g., at a store, etc): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lg-_tN_o9d4

2006

  • Genii, June, 2006 • Jack Parker's "Oddservation" (an observation test with eight regular cards drawn from any deck that includes several transpositions and transformations): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UNi1aWPrhMc

2003

  • Genii, December, 2003 • Jean-Pierre Vallarino's "Hypnotic Rumba Count," a variation of his Rumba Count that shows the faces of only two cards while apparently showing all the faces in a four-card packet (shown here at the beginning of his marketed trick, "Carre Blanc"): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EMjqZIvDGgs

2002

  • Genii, August, 2002 • David Acer & Richard Sanders' "Splittant," a variation of a Looy Simonoff's Flippant that creates the illusion of splitting one card, like a red Four, into two constituent cards, like two red Twos: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l-1JS8HGSSY#t=0m18s

2001

2000

  • Genii, May, 2000 • Tomo Maeda's "Human Cannonball," performed by Evan Shuster. A chosen card vanishes in a flash of fire from between two jokers that have been rolled and rubber-banded into a tube (or "cannon"). The selection is found inside a sealed envelope at which the "cannon" was aimed: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tks9xf13Pqs#t=1m02s

1990s

  • Genii, June, 1999 • Jay Sankey's "Leaving Home" (the magician removes a knotted loop of string with a key on it from around his neck, then magically unlinks and relinks the key): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3pnG_Qc5Umw
  • Genii, November, 1992 • Jean-Pierre Vallarino's Rumba Count (featured in Gary Ouellet's Fulminations column), a false count that allows you to show the faces of all the cards in a small packet as being identical, when in fact they are all different (shown and cued here during a performance of Darwin Ortiz's "Jumping Gemini"): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Y-uHeX1ep0#t=1m22s
  • Genii, August, 1992 • Popeye (featured in Gary Ouellet's Fulminations column), performed here on a Penn & Teller special. An impromptu dinner-table gag in which you apparently jam a fork into your eye, causing it to explode in a spray of white goo: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2NOgvk21rQE

1980s

  • Genii, May, 1988 • Gary Ouellet's "Silverdust" (a sprinkle of silver glitter shaken from a clear salk-shaker converges into a silver dollar, which vanishes once more to the glitter from whence it came): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SHVJ0PYtOW8#t=0m49s
