I'm hosting the Pat Page Memorial workshop at 4F in a few weeks. The session is basically a themed "Teach a Trick." This year's topic is "Tricks that can be done in less than a minute." During the session I pass out a list of possible topics for the next year. So far I have these possible topics:
  1. Tricks using two decks
  2. Tricks where something gets destroyed
  3. Tricks from a book everyone has forgotten about.
  4. Martin Gardner tricks
  5. Tricks where something changes its shape
  6. Tricks with writing implements
  7. Tricks using props from the Dollar Store
  8. Magic over the phone
  9. Tricks involving card boxes
  10. Tricks that are highly visual – “eye “candy
I'm open to suggestions from you guys. I'd like to add two or three more ideas to the list. So post away!

Magic with a wallet.  Yours or a borrowed one. Something vanish from, or appear in.  But in a totally different method than typical.
