Ultimate Faulty Followers

Ken de Courcy

Ultimate Faulty Followers by Ken de CourcyHere is a wonderful routine that you can perform every time and everywhere. From an idea by George Sands, Ken developed a beautiful three phases routine that can be performed under all circumstances with eight unprepared giant cards. The routine develops the theme “You can’t do what I do”.

Effect: Having enticed a spectator up to help, the magician hands him eight jumbo cards and says, "Please give me any four....and keep four yourself." This done, both performer and spectator carry out some simple movements but, when the cards are counted over, all the magician's cards are face down...

Tattoos on Cards

Tattoos on Cards by NinhShow any design you want on the card by simply lightly burning it with a lighter. When you pick a card and burn it, it will usually leave black streaks on the cards, but with Tattoos on Cards, black streaks will transform into any design of your choice: an image of a chosen card, a heart or your signature, a short message, ...

XPERT (X Personality Test)

Unknown Mentalist

XPERT (X Personality Test) by Unknown MentalistHappy to share that this is my 100th release since starting my releases with the Karma Deck in 2015. So this has a special price which is all of 100 cents. And comes with my heartfelt thanks and deep gratitude.

XPERT, which is short for X Personality Test, is a self working and fun personality test which can be performed with a lot of flexibility and yet delivers solid impact. It is engaging for the participant and easy for the performer to do. Just a few business cards and a one time preparation is all you need.

The participant is given a few double blank business cards which have different personality...

It's Your Deal

Wesley James

It's Your Deal by Wesley JamesThe most comprehensive book on False Deals ever conceived is now available. Written by one of the greatest living False Deal experts and performers; Wesley James is also one of the most detail focused writers in magic's long history.

This is the third book in the Wesley James "Technique Mastery" series, which currently includes A Call to Palms, Neo-Shufflogica and, now, It's Your Deal. Planned future volumes include I'll Pass and Cooler than Ever.

The PAT Switch: Before Computers Series 1

Bob Farmer

The PAT Switch: Before Computers Series 1 by Bob Farmer
"... The PAT Switch will have you rethinking many of the tricks you know and probably have in your repertoire, as well as suggesting new ideas." - Matt Field
There was a time when Doug Henning roamed the earth, a time designated B.C. (Before Computers). It was a time when armed only with an Olivetti portable typewriter, a deck of cards and a dream of unseating Max Maven as the inventor of more damn card tricks and sleights than anyone else in history, I devised many, many effects, some really awful with short life spans ("Spanish Inquisition," lie detector with Ascanio spread), some acceptable...

Howard Thurston's Kid Hair Raising Trick

Devin Knight

Howard Thurston's Kid Hair Raising Trick by Devin KnightA forgotten trick from the past that was first invented by Howard Thurston and used in his big show. The effect is that the magician invites up a boy from the audience and without touching the boy, he gestures toward the boy and the boy's hair stands on its end running from the front to back the back of his head, like a magical ripple. The hair falls down back to normal.

The magician raises his hand and the boy's hair once again stands on its end to the amazement of the audience. The magician quickly drops his hand and the boy's hair once again falls down, being normal again. The boy can then be used in...

Ninh

Print by NinhPlease not that this video is in Vietnamese with English subtitles.

The audience chooses a card. They keep it secret. The magician takes out a pack of gum packaged in a blister pack. He makes a gesture and magically a card suit appears on the inside of one gum blister. He continues to shake his hands again, and the value of the card appears in a second blister. The magician then removes the gum from its package and the audience can clearly see their picture card located on the gum.

The gimmick is very clever and requires a bit of 'arts and crafts'.

The 16 Magic Square Mystery

Robert A. Nelson

The 16 Magic Square Mystery by Robert A. NelsonPositively the most memorable way to ensure that spectators keep your business card. Any spectator calls out a number, say between 40 and 100. The performer instantly draws a Magic Square on the back of his business card (or has a rubber-stamped grid of 16 squares already on it). With no false moves, the mental magician fills in all 16 squares of the grid and hands the card to the spectator, with a request to keep it for luck. He then mentions an interesting fact about the lucky piece the spectator now holds. If any row of four numbers, either across, down or diagonal, are added together, they...

Suitcase Side Show

Tommy Windsor

Suitcase Side Show by Tommy WindsorHere is something different for the club or platform magician - a new act that will get you more bookings. Now you, too, can perform an immensely entertaining carnival pitch act that uses effects you most likely already own.

Contains comedy magic, patter and routines enough for three changes of program. The act is based on a premise of the performer playing the role of a sideshow barker, complete with spiel. Lots of the author's time and money went into this book, which was three years in preparation as the material was polished and refined in actual performance.

If you've ever wanted...

Shuber Vise

Chris Wasshuber

Shuber Vise by Chris WasshuberThe Shuber Vise is a card guard that has a card press integrated. I always wanted to combine these two functions into one small enough accessory to fit into my pocket. The Shuber Vise does exactly that. It is not wider than a deck of cards and is only somewhat longer and thicker, yet it perfectly protects your cards and keeps them under pressure so that they do not warp or bend, which every deck of cards does after some use without being pressed flat. With decks that cost $20 and more these days, it pays to take good care of your cards.

If your deck is already warped and bent, no problem....

Blank Card Surprise

Wolfgang Riebe

Blank Card Surprise by Wolfgang RiebeWacky, incredibly visual and totally impossible. Only a few words can describe this reputation maker. Ever wondered what to do with those double blank cards you've collected over the years? Here's the ultimate trick for you.

A spectator can chose any 4 double blank cards from a deck, or you can hand out 4 cards for inspection. Any one card is signed and placed aside. The remaining 3 cards all change to the spectator's signed card and can be clearly shown one at a time. In the end, they all become blank again and the spectator keeps his original signed card as a souvenir.

A packet card...

Elective One-Eyed Jacks

Ian Baxter

Elective One-Eyed Jacks by Ian BaxterThe One-Eyed Jack Sandwich theme was popularized by Harry Lorayne. However, it was none other than the Australian Charles Wicks who started the ball rolling, with his contribution The Charmed Watch appearing in The Magic Wand journal over eighty years ago. Ian's streamlined version keeps within the guidelines of a totally impromptu approach, observing the need to avoid difficult moves and eliminating superfluous handling.

Auto-Find

Ken de Courcy

Auto-Find by Ken de CourcyBased on a Bob Hummer and Karl Fulves principle. A spectator is handed seven playing-cards. He shuffles them, then places one of them aside face-down without looking at it. Now squares of cardboard are shown with cut-out windows. Spectator follows the magician's instructions and, at the end, looking through the cut-out windows in the cards, an index of a card appears. The chosen card is turned over and has been correctly revealed.

You will have to make up the squares of cardboard for this. The trick itself is self-working, the real work having been put into the evolution of the effect, but they are useful for...

Nite Club Thimble Magic

Chuck Smith

Nite Club Thimble Magic by Chuck SmithHere is an amazing and entertaining magic act that runs a full five minutes, yet it leaves the audience wanting more. An ebook every magician should have. Chuck Smith's routine includes beautiful vanishes, appearances and color change transformations. It looks so incredible to the audience, yet the entire act relies on only two, easy-to-master sleights. Everything can be examined (should the performer wish) before and after ... the thimbles really are ungimmicked.

If you're an enterprising conjuror, use the corporate colors of your sponsor for the color changes for even more applause. Also...
