37 Effective After Dinner Tricks by Arthur P. Felsman37 Effective After Dinner Tricks
by Arthur P. Felsman

Dinner's over, so now what? Entertain your guests, that's what! Here's a clever collection of after-dinner magic to entertain friends, business associates, and even total strangers.

Written by a famous Chicago magic dealer, the effects run the gamut from close-up miracles to routines for club and platform.

You'll find entertaining matrix effects, cut and restored mysteries, mindreading experiments, and much more. Includes a very nice two-person mental act that could be the hit of your next corporate show, banquet, or awards dinner.

Some of these effects were sold individually by magic dealers (such as the Nelson Enterprises) at prices far exceeding the price of the entire book!

While we take exception to the "no skill required" statement that the author makes, most of the effects are indeed easy to perform. A few require a minimal amount of dexterity.
