Jason Ladanye's approach to magic is simple - not about complicated sleight of hand. Jason looks for original plots and uses time-tested well-known sleights to achieve miracles for laymen. While Jason Ladanye will be teaching a few effects from his last hit book, Confident Deceptions, most of the effects taught on this At the Table Lecture will come from Jason's upcoming book, Game Changer. This means you have the opportunity to be one of the first to learn this hard-hitting and unpublished material. Jason also discusses how to build tension within your routine and how to use it to keep your audience engaged. Whether you're looking for new routines to master, or simply want to maximize the impact of the effects you've already mastered, this lecture will be a real game changer on your magic. Here's what you'll learn:
Nick of Time: A race against the clock to locate eight cards in sixty seconds. This one is a real crowd pleaser, building suspense to the last second. This uses a regular deck and can be done anytime and anywhere, and is one of the strongest effects in Jason's next book.
A Numbers Game (Ladanye's ACAAN): Jason gives a stunning demonstration of his ability to shuffle track cards. He follows the position of a selection as it changes during shuffles and cuts. A moment later, the performer causes any card to move to any position in the deck. Laymen walk away thinking you're a serious threat at the card table.
Big Stack: Here's an amazing and entertaining gambling routine. Jason stacks queens, kings, and aces in just two shuffles. This gambling routine plays like a magic trick. The spectators can know nothing about poker and still find this routine incredibly fascinating.
Game Changer: You play a simple two-card game against the spectator. You end up with your back against the wall, and the audience knows you cannot win this game-until you win in the most unexpected way possible.
Forging Ahead: There are plenty of signature transfer effects out there. Jason's contribution to this classic plot is to move a spectator's initials from the FACE of one card, to the FACE of another card. This is one of the strongest tricks in his book, Confident Deceptions, and one of the easiest to do!
Lucky Charms: This is an effect that spectators just can't comprehend. A folded card in view ends up being the spectator's signed selection. The best part is that they never see the ending coming.
Pinky Count: For anyone that's ever had difficulty with a "Pinky Count", or simply wanted to learn how to make your "Pinky Count" imperceptible, Jason runs through techniques for you to go from zero to hero!
