Coin to Sealed Candy Bag

Impromptu Matrix


Crazy Ace Matrix
by Jim Gerrish

The magician places four coins on a close-up mat using the familiar Matrix pattern. Four aces are openly pulled from a deck and one ace is placed face-down on top of each coin. As expected, the coins travel from beneath the cards until all four coins have gathered under a single card in the corner. Unexpectedly, the cards are then turned face up and the three cards that concealed vanished coins are shown to be blank face cards. The last card, under which the coins gathered, is turned face-up to show my Crazy Ace pattern. A template is provided for printing out your own Crazy Ace card.

A KISS (Keep It Simple, Stupid) version is also included for beginners.
