Also from the Secret Source comes this new packet trick from Gregory Wilson (n.t.g.w.-t.o.g.w.). The magician holds a packet of four cards. They are shown to have blank faces. Suddenly, the word "it" appears on one of the cards. The "it" card disappears and then returns. Then all of the cards have the word "it" on them. Finally, the words "this" and "that" appear on two of the cards.
This is a commercial and practical trick, and is easy to do, requiring only basic card handling skills. The cards are well made, and were specially printed for this trick. Should the cards become worn from excessive use, the Secret Source will replace them. This is a courteous thing for them to do.
Greg gives you a complete patter presentation for this routine, and it reminds me of Daryl's routine with the hole cards. That is, there is a great deal of wordplay involved. In fact, there is more wordplay involved than I feel comfortable with. It's just not my style. However, if this is your style then you will love this trick.
