Hello!

I love tricks like Chicago Opener where the card changes in the spectator's hands or Asi Wind's ACAAN where the spectator handles the cards almost all of the time.

It has to be amazing for the spectator to feel they are performing the trick or at least experiencing the trick first hand.

Which is your favorite trick where the magic takes place in the spectator's hands or they perform most of the trick?  It can be a card trick, but it doesn't need to be.

Thanks!

My go to has always been 2 Card Monte, its so fun to see people's reactions when they realize the cards they are holding in their hands aren't what they thought they were

Daryl's "Untouched"



While I agree Asi's ACAAN is perhaps the best out there, if you really watch it, the spectator doesn't hold the cards that much.



30 seconds and that's only because she picked a mid-range number (approx 1 second per number).  I suppose you could make it appear like they're holding the cards more by having them hold the box while you're doing the hit and run patter.  You would never want to let them hold the bare cards prior to the number being named.

Better than nothing of course, because a lot of ACAANs (especially impromptus) don't let the spectator touch them at all.  I think the main impressive thing about this trick is that is that Asi doesn't appear to handle the cards that much (there's a lot of time padding by patter in his version).

It is hard to top the astonishment people feel when they open their hand to find two sponge balls when they were certain there was only one.  That is one reason why sponge balls kill.
