- Paul Gertner's Photocopy - A demonstration of "Invisible Palming" leads to a selection magically travelling into a wallet the spectator is holding! As a kicker, the selection is actually inside a folded photocopy of a hand with the selection printed on it! Commercial magic at its best.
- Daryl's Presto Attracto Card - Two spectator's selections are lost in the deck and then found in an amusing and entertaining fashion, performed in the charming style only Daryl can provide.
- Rich Marotta's The Great Penetrator - A coin magically penetrates the solid coaster resting on top of a glass!
- David Regal's Heading North - Any card is selected and shuffled into the deck. The selection now inexplicably rises out of the deck! New method, easy to do!
- Jerry Andrus' Accusteal - A barehanded production of a steel ball bearing! A professional lesson in concealment.
- Simon Lovell's Signature Transfer - A card is selected and signed. The signature magically transfers onto a completely different card!
- Andrew Wimhurst's Kicked in the Face - Amazingly the aces are cut from a shuffled deck. For the kicker, four jacks are cut to, completing four blackjacks!
- Paul Wilson's 3 Bets on the Band - Three extremely valuable, professional effects/tips with a finger ring and a rubberband!
