Geckos A Go Go
One of the classic effects in magic redesigned and brought up to date with kid friendly cartoon pictures of a Gecko. Cards across has always been a favorite in magic and this may be your go to trick for family shows.
You start by showing 10 cards each with a Blue Gecko and set these aside in full view. Show another set of 10 cards each with a Black & White Gecko, these are also set aside in full view. Someone names a number, say 3...and with no funny moves you pick up the Blue Gecko Packet and show that there are only 7 Blue Geckos and not 10.
Pick up the Black & White Gecko packet and as you count the Geckos there are now 13 Geckos with the 3 Blue Geckos sandwiched between the other Geckos. The Blue Geckos jumped from one side packet into the other packet!
You next remove the 3 Blue Geckos and ask if any one would like to know how they jumped from one side to the other...you turn the Gecko cards over and there on each card is a large spring...why they jumped of course! This is a great reaction grabber.
- Very easy to do.
- No skills required, if you can count cards from one hand to the other you can do this.
- Printed on linen card stock...great feel.
- Printed on Tarot size card stock for easy visibility and handling
