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.

Scripted #9: Serendipity Deck

Larry Brodahl

Scripted #9: Serendipity Deck by Larry BrodahlImagine being able to control coincidence. Where the time and location of two events determines the outcome of the events. Now you can!

The magician removes a BLUE backed card from his pocket as he talks about coincidence, and how coincidence is decided by two factors: physical proximity and time. He has someone sit on the card. He then removes a RED backed deck from his pocket, and spreads the cards out front and back for the audience to see. Holding the deck in front of his face so that the audience cannot see the faces, he chooses two people that are sitting far apart to select cards....

A Bumblebee's Flight

Michel Cayrol & Jean-Marie Beckers

A Bumblebee's Flight by Michel Cayrol & Jean-Marie BeckersThis is an important improvement of the classic Kruskal principle. Think about this: The spectator can shuffle the deck and you still know exactly where the count will end!

This ebook contains a new principle on Kruskal-counting and illustrates the principle with two effects. The first effect A Bumblebee’s Flight will lead the spectator’s dealing sequence invariably to a known/predicted card, even after a shuffle by the spectator. A version for cards taken out of a sealed box and shuffled twice by spectators is also provided. Performance and explanation videos by Tomas Blomberg are linked...

Expert Card Chicanery

Alton C. Sharpe

Expert Card Chicanery by Alton C. SharpeFrom the Preface:
This booklet, like our other Expert Series, is not designed to be either a reference or an authority in the ordinary sense. Perhaps, at best, it might be called a tickler, a reminder, or a check list, although none of these terms would be exact. It was written and compiled to stimulate one's "thought processes" and to instill creative activity within those who have a fondness for the pasteboards.

Expert Card Conjuring

Alton C. Sharpe

Expert Card Conjuring by Alton C. SharpeFrom the introduction by Robert Parrish:
This book contains a remarkably select collection of sophisticated means for increasing and deepening the potential for "pleasant illusion" that resides in a pack of cards. These contributions range from presentation ideas such as Fred Lowe's "Second Deal Sam" to the technical refinement of standard effects, as, for example, in Ed Marlo’s "Approach to the ‘Stop’ Trick."

Expert Card Mysteries

Alton C. Sharpe

Expert Card Mysteries by Alton C. SharpeFrom the introduction by Robert Parrish:
Although much of the material in this book comes from advanced current contributors to card magic, Al has included some fascinating lore from the past. There is, for example, the first printed information on Eddie Fay's glimmer technique. I recall that the late Rufus Steele, an informed man of gamblers' dodges, simply refused to believe that Fay was using a reflector. He thought it was a put-on and that Fay was probably using a stack or a pack of marked cards. Then there is Paul LePaul's wonderful transportation of cards into a sealed envelope. Although he explained the trick...

Beginnings

Ryan Shaw

Beginnings by Ryan ShawA wonderful collection of original magic/mentalism effects and theory.

The Assumption Principle: A deceptive but simple and versatile principle that you'll surely be making your own tricks with.

Bluff ACAAN: To the spectator, it is a meaningful take on the ACAAN using a shuffled deck and free choice. They can handle the deck for the naming of the card and number. They can deal the cards.

Understanding and Using Gilbreath Principle

Michael Daniels

Understanding and Using Gilbreath Principle by Michael DanielsThis ebook is a beginner's guide to the famous Gilbreath Principle and its applications in card magic and mentalism. It includes two ESP-type routines:

Fingertip Sensation

The spectator shuffles the deck. The mentalist (who can be blindfold) then uses his fingertips to correctly identify the colour of cards.

Trinities Card Divination

The mentalist correctly divines attributes (colour, suit, value) of playing cards which the spectator has shuffled, dealt, and covered with his hands while the mentalist has turned away.

[Note: This ebook is a revised extract from Michael Daniels' ebook Trinities, plus an additional routine (Fingertip Sensation).

The Book of Card Tricks

The Book of Card Tricks by R. KunardFrom the preface:
In offering this collection of Card Tricks to the public it has been my endeavour to make every particular as clear as possible to the uninitiated. It will readily be granted that practical illustration must be vastly superior to the most carefully-written description of anything which, at the same time, requires both rapidity and neatness in execution; yet it appears to me that, if in the following pages I have been successful in making the most intricate trick clear in the manner of its manipulation, proper practice for the acquirement of ease and certainty will do the...

ACAANasta

Pablo Amirá

ACAANasta by Pablo AmiráA thought of card...
A thought of number ...
and most important, a routine that makes sense!

ACAANasta is an approach from my repertoire, inspired by the handlings and bold thinking from the master performer Chan Canasta. So many times there is no clear effect when performing the classic "Any Card at any number" (coincidence, prediction?), but with this routine, you will have a real worker, audience tested routine that you and your audiences will love. If you know my work, you know that I take simple ideas and construct a coherent choreography of moves so the effect is the desired one, but without...

Packet Magic

(Jerry) J. K. Hartman

Packet Magic by (Jerry) J. K. HartmanFrom the introduction:
The title suggests that the routines to be described solely involve small packets of cards. To that extent, it is inaccurate. Many of the routines utilize the full deck in varying degrees. The excuse is that they center around small groups of cards which by themselves are identifiable as packets, and thus can be combined in longer sequences with routines using those groups alone.

Small packet routines seem to have a certain niceness and precision about them and thus have a particular fascination for cardmen. Fortunately, laymen are generally impressed as well, ascribing...
