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.

In addition, learn all about Paul's awesome underground sleight, The Incomplete Faro Transfer and learn an amazing trick to use with it, The Indicator! No Perfect Faro is used.

Pseudo

Chris Rawlins

Pseudo by Chris RawlinsPseudo is the result of over half a decade of experimentation. Fascinated is a word that is over-saturated within the magic community, however I truly have become exactly that when it comes to memory demonstrations. This was one of my first creations with playing cards themed around the ability to remember. This is the first time I'm sharing Pseudo with nothing held back.

I'll be teaching everything I know about this routine. The good news for you is I've done all the hard work. After many years of testing this routine and refining it through performance, I've ironed out all the wrinkles....

Super-Cuts

Jon Racherbaumer

Super-Cuts by Jon RacherbaumerThe methods explained in this manuscript involve cutting a deck to ostensibly change its order. They are semi-automatic because minimal dexterity is required. Otherwise they are subtle in seductive ways and all of them are completely or partially false.

The false cut triggering this manuscript is Jay Ose's False Cut that was auspiciously introduced to magicians by Harry Lorayne. This false cut eventually made its way into the repertoires of card specialists, but early on it was primarily meant to be easily and quickly performed after false shuffling. It was to the point, expressing a pleasing, sixbeat...

MAC: The Mentalist's Ambitious Card

Nico Heinrich

MAC: The Mentalist's Ambitious Card by Nico HeinrichThis is an introductory price. It will go up to $10 on March 3rd, 2017.

MAC is one of my favorite things to perform. I use it on a regular basis for almost a decade now and it's still one of my strongest card effects. Yes, it is card magic - an Ambitious Card to be precise. But don't expect a lot of sleights or multiple phases here. MAC has only one phase, using only one (or two) sleights. The rest is pure suggestion and psychology. The best thing though: It happens in the participant's hand and they can feel it happening.

MAC looks like magic, but feels like mentalism. It's completely...

12 Tricks with a Borrowed Deck

Martin Gardner

12 Tricks with a Borrowed Deck by Martin GardnerHere are a dozen quality card magic effects that can be performed with an unprepared deck at a moment's notice. While not self-working, most of these miracles rely on just one or two sleights. Crisp illustrations by Dr. Harlan Tarbell help make it easy to understand and master.

Here's what's included:

  • Improved Topsy-Turvy Deck - The deck is flipped half face-up and half face-down, then sloppily shuffled. The deck mysteriously rights itself, except for three selected cards, which are the only reversed cards in the pack. This will slay your audience.
  • Face to Face Fantasy - A cheek-to-cheek deck type effect,...

Memorable Mentalism: Mysteries With the Mnemonic Deck

Enrico Varella

Memorable Mentalism: Mysteries With the Mnemonic Deck by Enrico Varella
"The only people who speak of the difficulties of the memorising a deck of cards are those who've never seriously tried to learn one." - Simon Aronson
Would it be useful to you if you knew the identity of the top card of a shuffled deck? What if you knew both the identity of the top and bottom cards of a shuffled deck in use? If you know the identity of four cards on the top of a shuffled deck, how would you apply this knowledge? Would you desire to demonstrate that you can speed memorise a packet of cards within seconds? Now, imagine this: You know the identity of every card in an entire...

Impossible Card Flights

Devin Knight

Impossible Card Flights by Devin KnightNote: You will need to purchase a special deck of cards from a magic dealer described in this PDF.

Read every word closely, as this is an accurate description. A new effect never done before, designed by Devin Knight to close both his stage and close-up shows. In the audience's mind it is mind-shattering effect that defies explanation. Imagine sending a selected card backward in time and proving it! This is something your audiences have not seen and is so strong it has to be a show closer as nothing can follow it.

A VIP is invited to come forward; this could be the president of the club...

DYAD

Abhinav Bothra

DYAD by Abhinav BothraA deceiving card control + an intrepid card move = An audacious card at any number

AMBIENCE CONTROL : A single card control from the middle of the deck to the top. Originally put out in The Blind Faith Collection (2015). It can also be used as a phase in an Ambitious Card Routine.

SAY STOP : A Selected Card At Any Number where you don't really need to know the number before hand. Originally put out in Audacious (2013) and as a bonus in C.I.A (2015).

Notes and Credits: Do not confuse Ambience Control to be same as Bizau Christian's Blind Square. They both are different. Say Stop was inspired from Paul Wilson's Yamfacaan. However...

Cards Cool

Al E. Smith

Cards Cool by Al E. SmithA quick-fingers count-up reveals that including covers, contents page and suchlike, Cards Cool is a 64 page ebook overflowing with 20 individual card fragments and generous chunks of waffle to encourage them on.

A mixed-up shuffling of, ideas, doctrines, gentle dogmas and tender opinions to baffle and amuse. Regular sort of stuff, nothing off the wall or up the chimney, merely a smattering of street-worn cardboardian craziness. Nothing too involved or muscle tasking. Another soothing blend for Card Cardpersons.

Hot to Trost

David Devlin

Hot to Trost by David DevlinDavid Devlin has released a staple from his impromptu card act. This is a full routine, and it is a killer! This is based on an effect by the great Nick Trost, and is a tribute of sorts to him. This may become your "go-to" effect when someone hands you a deck and says, "Do something." You will be performing this routine in no time. It is not difficult, and it looks incredible.

Here is the routine: The jokers are removed from the deck, and placed on the table. The performer removes any card he wishes, but shows it to know one, not even himself. This card is placed face down between the two jokers, but...

Ulysses Frederick Grant

Grant's Brilliant Card Magic by Ulysses Frederick GrantThis is a fascinating book on card magic. It shows U. F. Grant at his best. (Robert J. Smith mentioned on the cover was one of U.F. Grant's pseudonyms.) These are some of the most ingenious methods for card tricks you will find. Many are magician foolers. All are very easy to do, but pack a wallop. Most of them require no sleight of any kind!

You get 50 tricks in all. Some of these items can be used as show platform tricks such where a glass of ink changes to glass of clear water with a selected card inside using no chemicals. Another effect is that three people just name cards at random....

Monk Stack

Unknown Mentalist

Monk Stack by Unknown MentalistThis is an introductory price and will go up to $6 from February 27th, 2017.

The Monk Stack is a simple cyclical stack. It was designed to solve two famous problems of the Si Stebbins stack and the 8 Kings stack. Like the Si Stebbins stack, this does not have an obvious sequence. And unlike the 8 Kings, this does not need the memorization of a mnemonic.

In fact, the single, simple rule of the Monk Stack is so easy that you will learn the stack instantly after reading the rule. Not only that, it will also be almost impossible for you to forget the rule thereafter. Frankly, the cool rule...

From the introduction by John Braun:

He has definitely struck "pay dirt" in this book, which he has whimsically titled THE LIVING END. In simpler terms, this is an encyclopedic collection of endings for one of the most popular branches of Magic - the "take a card, look at a card, remember a card, think of a card, any card," opening.

Having completed this stage, the performer KNOWS either the identity of the card or its whereabouts in the pack, and sometimes he knows both. And, as John Northern Hilliard put it back in 1908 in DOWNS' ...

Eye Candy

Brick Tilley

Eye Candy by Brick TilleyThe spectator selects, remembers, and returns a card to the deck. Without any unnecessary handling the performer counts down to its value, then spells the suit. The selected card is turned over at the end of this counting/spelling sequence.

Based on a trick by Frederick Mosteller in 1943 that used two decks. This is a streamlined and more commercial one deck version.
