Cards

The most popular tricks are card tricks. Take a pack of cards and perform a miracle. Some of the masters whoes work you will find here are Dai Vernon, Tony Slydini, Roberto Giobbi and many many more. A pack of cards with its 52 pasteboards allows a shear infinite number of combinations and variations of card tricks. A philosophical question to ask would be if there are a finite number of card tricks possible or an infinite number. Looking at the amount of published card tricks it appears to be for all practical purposes infinite. Nevertheless the classic themes remain extremely popular and effective. It is hard to top a good ambitious card routine, card warp, oil and water, card to wallet (or other impossible locations), or torn and resored card etc. But occasionally we are blessed with the grace of a genius who gives us the gift of a completely new trick, concept or principle.

Piano Roles

Jon Racherbaumer

Piano Roles by Jon RacherbaumerJon loves to collect, compare, and organize tricks into themes and plots. This is his latest work on the piano trick.

WHAT IS THE PIANO TRICK?

A spectator places his hands palm down on the table in the same way a pianist places his hands on a keyboard. Then pairs of cards are placed between the spectator's fingers to set the stage. These pairs are then fairly removed to form two equal piles. An extra or "odd" card is added to one of the piles. Then, without any further movements or fanfare, the "odd" card inexplicably travels to the other pile.

Jack's Pack

Jack Yates

Jack's Pack by Jack YatesJack Yates was a very clever and innovative magician who has somehow stayed below the radar and is completely unknown - undeservedly so - to many particularly in the US. Jack's Pack is a clever stacking method for finding any card in a deck by way of using numbers, names, words, etc.

Edited and with additional notes by Ken de Courcy.

Peeks of Chaos

Tom Phoenix

Peeks of Chaos by Tom PhoenixTwo devious peek devices for mentalists.

Every mentalist needs an arsenal of peek methods, be that a device, or a folding peek. The Peeks of Chaos contains two peek devices, each using the card box: the "Mockra Peek", and the "Meanas Peek". Each method is very deceptive, and the peek happens at a natural moment, with no funny movements.

No Way!

Devin Knight

No Way! by Devin KnightThis is one of my all-time favorite card tricks (miracles); because after seeing it, most spectators say, "NO WAY!"

Imagine this; you spread a regular deck of cards face up between your hands. All the cards are seen to be different. You tell your spectator that you want him to remove one card behind your back so there is no way you can see the card he selected. You turn your back towards him and spread out the cards face up behind your back. He is asked to remove any card and not let you see what it is. Next he takes a Sharpie pen and puts his initials on the face of the card. He inserts...

Pocketses

Mark Elsdon

Pocketses by Mark ElsdonThis was my absolute favourite anytime-anywhere card miracle last year. I created it just before the Blackpool Magic Convention and so I've decided that the time is perfect to release it.

Effect: From a borrowed, shuffled deck you remove two single cards which you place into your pockets. You quite openly state that these are predictions: one card will match the suit, and the other card will match the value of the card that the participant is about to choose! The participant shuffles the deck and removes a card. 100% free choice, no force. Let's say it is the Ace of Hearts. You remove the...

At the Table Tricks

Neal Elias

At the Table Tricks by Neal EliasThis quality volume contains 13 must-have card presentations and sleights, plus a no-sleight effect for the close-up entertainer. While not self-working, most rely on just one or two sleights. Easy-to-follow illustrations make the effects easy to understand and master.

Neal Elias was a confidant of Ed Marlo, Lin Searles, and other world class card experts. He also spent time as a demonstrator for George Snyder's magic shop in Cleveland, Ohio. No doubt several of Neal's creations will, after you read this ebook, find a place in your own routine.

Aronson Stack for Everybody

Geoff Williams

Aronson Stack for Everybody by Geoff WilliamsIn 1979, Simon Aronson gave the world of magic an incredible tool - A Stack To Remember - which has come to be known as the "Aronson stack," a seemingly random arrangement of cards that has amazing miracle properties built into it.

Many magicians have avoided adding memorized deck work to their repertoires because of the daunting task of committing a stacked deck to memory. Struggling to grasp the associations of the cards and their locations within the stack, most quit after a few hours or days. I was the same way... until a Harry Anderson manuscript got me to thinking about how to make...

The Magic of Michael Skinner

Paul A. Lelekis

The Magic of Michael Skinner by Paul A. LelekisNine effects from the repertoire of Michael Skinner. Forward by John Carney is very informative. (John was one of Michael Skinner's dearest friends.) Michael gave John his "Notebook of Magic" before he passed.

The introduction provides a "deep insight" into the career, life, friends, and "thinking" of this very special man. Michael Skinner is considered to be the greatest magician of all time. His sleights, subtleties, nuances, misdirection, patter, trick selection, and pace were impeccable...and the size of his repertoire was profound. Skinner could perform over 600 different effects at his prime - and...

Kounted

Kevin Parker

Kounted by Kevin ParkerAn impromptu card divination.

Divine the amount of cards randomly cut off the deck by you or spectator without using stacks or gimmicks; you may be off by one or two cards; no setup, totally impromptu. Spectator even shuffles the deck beforehand. Borrowed deck.

Kevin Parker's system allows for this type of feat and many others.

  • you're not cutting to predetermined spots; you can cut anywhere or let spectator cut.
  • no insertion of a crimped, cut, shaven, or altered card into the deck to mark a location; no setup whatsoever.
  • no gimmicks or stacks or deck setup; borrow a deck, let them...

The Cerebral Approach: Book Four

Nick Conticello

The Cerebral Approach: Book Four by Nick ConticelloTwo locations based on a unique method.

No Mean Card Trick

Effect: From an unprepared pack he has just shuffled and cut, a spectator counts out ten cards and thinks of one. He buries the packet in the deck himself. The performer cuts the pack and deals out a 5x4 face-up array. He asks the spectator to think "yes" if his card is in the array. The performer confirms the card is on the table. Next the performer asks the spectator to concentrate on which horizontal row his card is in. After some effort, the performer discards the other three rows correctly. Finally, the spectator is asked...

A Nice Choreography

N.I. Pectus

A Nice Choreography by N.I. PectusThis nice choreography utilizes some basic moves and concepts to create an appearance of something real. It feels that the implications of the effect are real.

First the spectator examines a card, a Joker lets say, and it remains face up on the table. Afterwards the deck is spread face up in front of him and he is asked to move his finger, pointing always vertically towards the cards, from one end to the other. The spectator stops where he wants. The selection is determined - the four of clubs.

Not knowing what the reason for it might be, the spectator is advised to examine the Joker from...

Accans Family

Raphaël Czaja

Accans Family by Raphaël CzajaEFFECT: A spectator shuffles a packet of number cards as much as he wants and deals through it to create a random number. Then, he deals through a blue-backed deck of playing cards (in which the magician put a red-backed prediction) and stops at his number. Let's say his card is the 7 of Clubs. Unbelievably, the red-backed prediction is the 7 of Clubs!

NB: The deck is always dealt face-up. Self-working. Happens in the hands of the spectator. Examinable. Quick reset. No gaff. Uses one regular deck and one red-backed card only. Includes a handling to perform it anytime during your act with...

Neo Shufflogica

Wesley James

Neo Shufflogica by Wesley JamesRevisiting the False Shuffle for Artifice and Magic

There has not been a complete work on Shuffle technique since the early 1970's, yet Shuffle techniques have continued to advance. In fact, there has been a significant shift in the paradigm of those at the forefront of Shuffle techniques. Further, "In-the-Hands" techniques have become increasingly common, even in the magic fraternity, as they have been in the cheating community for many years. Now, for the first time, one of the most recognized experts on the subject has released the real work, including many of his own developments, for...

Dead Cut

Steven Palmer

Dead Cut by Steven PalmerA very fooling close-up routine using playing cards with progressively more impossible stages. Using minimum sleight of hand and a normal deck this has been a favourite prelude to show how the performer gained his intuitive abilities.

Luke Jermay Prelude from the full-length book Method:

My personal pick is "Dead Cut," which is not only very well constructed and cleverly composed but I am certain will be the perfect piece for many magicians who wish to bridge the worlds of the magic they have become known for and mentalism. This routine alone will be worth ten times the price paid for this book to...
