I'm not sure how many people are familiar with Ramon Rioboo's work here at the Magician's Forum, but here's a great little trick from his book, "Thinking the Impossible".

This is one of those things that fooled the heck out of my wife!

Very nice, Rudy. Another neat trick I liked from the book is called "the world's smallest computer." Nice lie detector trick with a small packet of cards.

Thanks! I'll check out "The World's Smallest Computer" in the morning.

yeah! very good trick!

brilliant book, my favourites there are (I don't know the names in english, sorry, i'll try)

1- four predictions (if you can steal a card from another deck, a while after you can do this)
2- telepathy, x-rays and telekinesia (easy and strong for laymen)
3- magic/mentalism (don't sure how can it be in called in english)
4- thief and attorney? (brilliant thinking)
5- the card that travels in the time
6- the smallets computer (as said, very nice trick)
7- super exact cuts (only for laymen)
8- THE 3 BETS (don't overlook this one, you can play with the spectator too much and is really fun, your imagination is the limit with the bets and you can suit them to the context of the performance)

I just looked at "Telepathy, x-rays and telekinesis". So simple that I would've probably overlooked it. There is a nice subtlety in how those packets are reassembled that I like.

I also like "Law and Order" (#4 on your list) but have never used a trick that requires lapping. Just never really found myself in a position to do that where I felt like I could get away with it. I bet I could benefit from some of Dani DaOrtiz' work on the lap.

Thanks for pointing this out, Eusbanger!

Rudy
