4 Explosive Rope Cut: cut and restore a rope with a bang
5 Seeing is Disbelieving: at the end the Joker's are on you
6 The Invisible Die: cards from a well-shuffled pack match the date on a borrowed coin
7 Wandering Wabbits: a white cut-out rabbit and a black cut-out rabbit change places, even although they are marked with ribbons, and more
8 Oh Mummy!: yards of bandages are pulled from the sarcophagus, leaving the Mummy nude and either cold or modest!
9 The Sky-Hooked Coin: one of Ken's favorite impromptu tricks
10 The Gordian Ring: a ring vanishes then visibly appears tied in a knot in the center of a rope.
11 A Trio of Neophytes: the magician divines three chosen cards.
