Boris is probably best known for his 'Boris Wild Marked Deck', which he describes here in detail. (For the right material to prepare your Boris Wild Marked Deck please see here.) He also teaches his version of a memorized deck, which you can learn in 6 minutes, because there is a system, a formula if you will, to it. And particularly the combination of his marked deck and his memorized deck allow you to fulfill your Wild-est effects.
If that is not enough then you will also learn the Kiss Count. The Kiss Count is a new move in cardmagic. Thanks to it, you will be able to pretend you have four identical cards while you really have four different cards. It replaces Brother John Hamman’s dear old “Flushtration Count”.
Of course, you are not just learning moves and techniques, but you are also getting some increadible routines:
The magician shows a double back deck on both sides and
cut it in two halves. He turns one packet over and shuffles it
into the other. He snaps his fingers, spreads the deck and
all the backs of the cards are now upwards! What a triumph!
Of course it was a gag and the magician wonders what kind
of trick he can do with such a deck to perform something
Suddendly, he has an idea: he takes five cards out of the
deck, puts them in a row on his mat and leaves the rest of
the double back cards next to him on the table.
Then he shows a normal deck and asks someone to take
one of the five double back cards from the table and to slide
it somewhere in the deck. He takes the card right under the
double back card and show it (10 of hearts for example).
The magician takes the 10 of hearts and turns the four other
double back cards into four 10 ten of hearts, each one in a
At the end of the routine, he fans the five 10 of hearts and
waves them over the double back deck. The cards are
spread: they are all now 10 of hearts!!!
Everything can be examined.
The magician writes a prediction on a little piece of paper
that he folds and places in a transparent glass. Then he
gives a deck to a spectator and asks him to check that all
the cards are different. The spectator shuffles the deck and
gives it back to the magician.
The deck is spread face-down on the table and the spectator
eliminates dozens of cards without any ambiguity.
Finally, after several free eliminations, there is only card left
on the mat: the card that the magician wrote on the piece of
paper before the effect starts!
A blue deck of cards is shown, put back in its box and
thrown to someone in the audience. A red deck is given to a
spectator who will help the magician.
While the spectator checks and shuffles thoroughly this
deck, the magician asks a lady to tell him any number: 13
for example. The magician gets the red deck back without
looking at the faces and asks the spectator who shuffled it
to pick up a card and to show it to everybody (the 7 of clubs
The magician asks the spectator who has the blue deck
since the beginning to take it out of the box and to count 13
cards : the 13th is the 7 of clubs!
The magician shows an ordinary deck of cards, he leaves it
on the table and he withdraws into a corner of the room.
A lady cuts the deck where she wants and looks at the bottom
card of the portion she has cut. Then, the magician asks
her to shuffle the cards she has in her hands and during this,
a second spectator takes the rest of the deck and puts it
back in the box.
The magician comes back to the lady, he takes the cards
and fans them in front of her (N.B.: he never looks at the
faces). He asks her not to say anything but to feel a strong
emotion when she sees her card.
Litlle by little and without asking any question, the magician
drops all the cards... except one: the card the lady is thinking
