Spooner's Six Card Repeat Routine

 Spooner's Six Card Repeat

Tommy Tucker is given credit for the basic six card repeat. Numerous variations have been created since Tucker’s original concept. This routine is an outgrowth of a routine published by Robert Olson in Sick Sorcery as "Sik Kard Repeat." The gimmicked cards are taken from Olson’s publication, but the routine is original.

Effect: Six cards are counted, three thrown away and still six remain. This process is repeated a number of times. During the counts cards accidentally drop to the floor, fly into the air, get stuck on the performer's thumb and coat, and fall to the floor with a thud.

The routine builds in humor to the climax.

This routine requires some work as 37 cards are used, including four gimmicked cards. The buckle count is the only sleight used in the routine. The gimmicked cards are not supplied, but are easy to make. The 8 ½ by 11 inch publication contains 5 pages of instructions with an outlined summary at the end. The cover design is by Steve Pressley.
