The Tarot deck trick is very simple with two cards initially on the top and bottom of the otherwise blank deck. Not sure of the exact moves used to get the third card in position.

The sponge balls didn't seem all that special. I guess the guys couldn't see his moves so considered that an FU. He did start out using the conventional techniques, but then veered off into new territory.

The little girls card trick was based on cards the would separate into packets if handled right. I believe Penn was talking about a little bit of curl in the cards that separated the packets. You can see her shuffle is just shifting packets around and she's counting the missing cards in the packets to see what's been moved and removed. At the end she's shifting cards around to get the count right. Very impressive.

The crossword puzzle was cute, but underneath just the same as all the other similar (but less creative) box tricks.
