  • Genii, June, 2006 • Jack Parker's "Oddservation" (an observation test with eight regular cards drawn from any deck that includes several transpositions and transformations):




  • 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"):


  • 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:



  • 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:


  • 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):
  • 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"):
  • 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:


  • 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):
