Hex

Hex by Bill Madsen & Al ForgioneThis is a great collection of tricks from a list of top notch contributors.

From the introduction:

For six years, Al and I cooperated in a modest venture titled The New Jinx. It was a monthly magic journal conceived out of certain personal ambitions of mine. The first was to attempt a living memorial to the memory of Ted Annemann, creator of the original Jinx and an individual who has captured my interest more than any other single person I can think of. Next, I wanted to express my own personal viewpoints on the existing state of "professionalism" in stage magic and mentalism. Such a journal would...

49 Easy To Do Card Tricks

49 Easy To Do Card Tricks by Percy AbbottFrom the introduction:
Included in the 49 effects are some that are new and some that have been favorites of professional Magicians for years, but all of them have been tested on their merits as entertaining and mystifying tricks.

All of these tricks can be performed with any deck of playing cards, with little or no preparation beforehand, and in compiling them, it has been the aim to include only such tricks as may be performed simply with a pack of playing cards, without the necessity of any extra paraphernalia.

These tricks are easy to do, and may be performed once you have the directions...

15 Exciting Minutes with a Borrowed Deck

15 Exciting Minutes with a Borrowed Deck by Eddie JosephFrom the introduction:
The routine comprises five different effects, each able to stand out on its own merit. When combined, you will confuse the sharpest mind, the logical reason being that you appear to be doing the same thing over and over again, but you vary your secret procedure with each repetition.

All sleights have been eliminated and even if one had not done a single card trick before, he will still be able to bewilder and earn the reputation of a highly-skilled card worker. The tricks are so designed that at no stage do you appear to be taking any active part — your spectators...

Scripted #6: Lie Detector with 4 Objects

Scripted #6: Lie Detector with 4 Objects by Larry BrodahlOne of the more difficult tasks facing magicians is coming up with scripts - of any sort. Especially a routine where you have 1 or more audience members mentally select any of 4 objects and then answer 3 questions with either lies or the truth. And you identify the truthtellers -vs- the liars, and you discern which object they were thinking of.

How do you explain to an audience, in a reasonable manner, WHY you want to test them for lying -vs- truth telling or why you're using the 4 objects that you use? Well, the author of How To Write A Script shows you how he used his methodology to write a script that:

Mindipulation

Mindipulation by Unknown MentalistThis is an introductory price and will go up to $12 from 3rd October, 2016.

This is based on a classic principle but layered with multiple reveals and disguised with a mentalism presentation. Two participants randomly choose a card each while the performer's back is turned. In fact the performer never touches the cards after initially handing over the packet to a participant. The 'card' here is not a playing card but a 'mystic' card which has details like colors, directions etc. And yet the performer divines all the thoughts of both the participants.

Only 4 cards are used for the routine...

Unfathomable: a recreation of the Piddington's two person telepathy act

Unfathomable: a recreation of the Piddington's two person telepathy act by Martin T. HartOn Tuesday the 19th of July 2016, the renowned International Man of Mystery, David Berglas introduced the premiere of Martin T. Hart's Unfathomable which claims to be 'the most baffling demonstration of ESP ever witnessed anywhere, ever'. Mr. Berglas described the story of the famous Piddingtons, a husband and wife telepathy act on BBC radio in 1949, who could communicate using only their minds. Their secrets were undiscovered for 70 years, until Martin published his book, Piddington's Secrets.

The stage-show 'Unfathomable', is a series of demonstrations of two-person telepathy, written by and starring Edward (Eddie) James...

The Next Best Trick of the Year

The Next Best Trick of the Year by Tom PhoenixDo a color change, while the card is on fire!

This is a really nice color change, with the added touch of changing a burning card into a different burning card. Included is a method to make the first card travel from the deck, into the box. The change will take some practice, as it uses some un-orthodox moves, but is well within the skill of the average card handler.

Entertainment Factor

Entertainment Factor by Brian T. LeesTwo magicians do a show. At the end one audience leaves the show walking out like students changing classes at high school. The other comes out excited, talking about some of the "WOW" moments of the show. The difference between the two magicians is the entertainment factor.

You can have the best equipment, do the latest/greatest magic and still fail. The true unit of measure for magicians is the entertainment factor. That factor is controlled entirely by the audience. This text identifies elements that impact the entertainment factor.

Method Impossible

Method Impossible by Jason MessinaImpossibilities made possible, ideas made real.

The mindset of someone who creates magic is a unique one. It certainly has uses that extend far beyond magic. Ideas float through our heads all day long. You can create original, beautiful and complete impossible magic. This little manuscript was built out of that. The notion that you could do anything. That no method was out of the question and no effect couldn't be accomplished. People began to talk a lot about what came next. The impossible is hard to believe, especially when it's true.

The ideas, routines and methods are meant to collide...

Hexagnosis

Hexagnosis by Unknown MentalistThis is an introductory price and will go up to $12 from 25th September, 2016.

The word 'Hexagnosis' is derived from Prognosis. The meaning of Prognosis is 'a forecast of the likely outcome of a situation'. Hexagnosis means 'the forecast of the likely outcome of a situation which has six possible outcomes.'

The performer predicts, very cleanly and accurately, the exact choice of a participant from among six possible options. A couple of ordinary business cards and a pen is all you need to perform this cool routine. The principle is so simple and powerful that you will find yourself performing...

You show an example of various profiles and hand them a small booklet to browse through. They can secretly turn to any page and select any profile to serve as the catfish.
