The popularity of memorized deck magic has continued unabated. Every day new magicians join the ranks of those who have discovered the power that comes from mastering a memdeck system. Memdeck practitioners are always searching for powerful, commercial routines, especially routines that leave the deck in stack order.
The Guatemalan Miracle is a hands-off mental effect that packs a powerful punch. It is almost self-working (or semi-automatic, if you prefer), but requires the basics of memorized deck work. Some low level sleight of hand is required to return the deck to stack order. It works with both the Aronson and the Tamariz stacks (and will probably work with other stacks as well). It also serves as an excellent lead-in to one of Tamariz’s great routines in Mnemonica.
The Guatemalan Miracle is a 12-page pdf file, which can be read with Adobe Reader. In addition to the very clear instructions, Michael Close provides you with a brief examination of the nature of self-working routines, and, (as with his other published work) gives you information that you can apply to other effects.
