have you made up a trick? what did you name it!


#1

Hey guys, I was thinking, if I ever make up a trick… What the heck am I going to name it!?! So if you’ve made up a trick, post the name here! You can even post a video of the trick if you want! How did you think of the name too?


#2

Well, I know a great deal of people on this forum (myself included) are constantly making original tricks. I sometimes name my tricks, but a lot of people never give then names. When it comes to naming tricks, it doesn’t have to have anything to do with the trick itself, I usually just think of something completely random, like something to do with the last book I read or whatnot. Unless you film your tricks like 365, trick names don’t really matter.


#3

I have created a couple tricks before and their names really have nothin to do with how the trick is performed

Like I would just take a dictionary, close your eyes, turn to a random page, and pick a random word or something

You can name your tricks whatever you desire


#4

Tricks I made up:
Homestuck(1a) though I’m not a fan of the homestuck series but it was a good name for a trick.
Suicidal wish(5a)


#5

more of a small trick but it was a little thing out of mach whip i think it’s called that not sure. but called it whippersnapper.


#6

drunken yoyo-fu

more of a style then a trick


#7

I’ve made several tricks. Usually I name them something random, which actually helps me remember them better. Examples are Synthetic, Pride and Joy, Mecha Gangam Style, Awkward Elbows, and Locusts.


#8

I made a repeater based off of cold fusion, I can’t think of a name though.


#9

I named 2 tricks, circuit breaker and brother bounce :smiley:


#10

-I Went To The Circus and All I Got Was a Broken Leg
-Foreign Land
-swear You
-Attempted Suicide
-Gallivanting Frog
-Flourishes (more of an element than a trick)


#11

Lemme think…

-Bamph (phonetic version of BAMF)
-Eat My Pantaloons
-Regis Philbin
Some others I can’t seem to remember the name of right now

I made one. It was called the vortex because that was the yoyo I created it on.


#13

I went to the circus and all I got was a broken leg? Hahah what?


(Alex Fairhurst) #14

my trick names consist of a short description of the first element or two. to help me remember them.

“houdini slack”
“chopsticks slack to rejection”
“lotsa tech with tunnels”

#16

Way back when I named two tricks: Money Tree and Scented Candles. Sadly, I have no idea how those tricks went anymore. Well, I’m sure they weren’t that good anyway. :stuck_out_tongue:

I need to start naming my tricks again…


#17

Have you made the trick “famous” or is that you?


#18

Both 8)


(Zammy Ickler ) #19

Should I really type out my trick names…?

Beyond too many.

Ballista is probably my favorite.


#20

I’ve made up Bouncing Rabbit, Rattlesnake, Hurricane (all of which were posted here at some time) as well as a lot that I haven’t named.
