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.

The Cerebral Approach: Book Two

Nick Conticello

The Cerebral Approach: Book Two by Nick ConticelloNovel Concepts with Key Cards. No sleight-of-hand is needed for any of these effects. Ideal for both magicians and mentalists.

Imagine taking a borrowed, shuffled, incomplete deck, mixing it a bit yourself, and offering it to a volunteer for a cut. The volunteer then cuts each half separately, chooses a card from one half, and buries it in the pack himself. Yet despite these difficult conditions, you are able to locate the selected card with absolute certainty. That is the premise of this ebook.

The Straddle Key concept is a breakthrough in key card theory. I have tested this material...

Kevin Parker

Cyclone by Kevin ParkerThey pick a card (no force), they return it to the deck, they shuffle - as much as they want. You pull out a written prediction (genuinely pre-written; no swami) and it tells them how many cards from the top of the deck their card will be after shuffling. They - or the performer - deals down to that number of cards and there it is, their card at the predicted location.

Note: The prediction may be off by one, two, three or possibly more places depending on how well you master this skill. You will also need a stripper deck even though you will not be using it to strip out any cards.

"You are unbelievably fantastic and ripe with GREAT ideas" - Marc Salem

"His passion for stacked decks is so big that also with this release he gives us demonstration of his ability to combine two well known principles in one! Making all easy and at the same time hiding the secrets even more. I wish him continued success!" - Luca Volpe

"I'm surprised that no one has thought of this before. Combining two different stacks will certainly fool those "in the know" about stacked decks. I hope others take your encouragement and try other combinations of different stacks to see...

Oil and Queens

Jon Racherbaumer

Oil and Queens by Jon RacherbaumerThe oil and water effect is a classic of card magic, some love it, some hate it. If one has ever seen Rene Lavand do it slow motion with one hand you probably love it. But there is only one Rene Lavand. Some say the effect of red and black cards separating is rather weak, until Roy Walton added a kicker in 1969 where half the cards change to Queens. Dave Bendix tweaked Walton’s handling. Bob Stencil and Terry LaGerold devised a narrative that logically excused the surprise appearance of the Queens. Jon Racherbaumer and Jeff Busby independently expanded the kicker to not only change half the...

Sleight Intended

J. G. Thompson Jr.

Sleight Intended by J. G. Thompson Jr.From the foreword:
For years the pattern has been the same. A newcomer to magic invariably turns first to cards as a vehicle for mystification. He spends hours upon hours mastering difficult sleights and then, to his dismay, learns of the existence of easier and more effective maneuvers hidden away in magical literature - moves about which he could have no knowledge, but which would have made his previous struggles unnecessary, or, at least, eased them. Gradually he discards the results of many arduous hours of practice and substitutes the newly discovered and simplified versions until,...

Triple Success

Raphaël Czaja

Triple Success by Raphaël CzajaThis is also included in Knocked For Six.

You remove the two Jokers and three indifferent cards from the deck so the spectator can't choose them. You write three predictions on your business cards. Then, the spectator cuts to three cards. He chooses to place one of them between the Jokers, another one among the three indifferent cards whereas the last one is reversed into the deck. The predictions match all the spectator's cards and choices!

Excerpts from a few Magic Cafe reviews:

"This prediction will make the spectator think that you can predict the future. I tried this on my wife, and she was completely...

Divide and Conquer

Tom Phoenix

Divide and Conquer by Tom PhoenixThis is a series of methods for taking a spectator-shuffled deck and sorting it into piles of red and black - while blindfolded.

And one of the methods (as shown in the demo) gives you the ability to identify the suit and value of each card of a borrowed, shuffled deck, requiring no memorization.

There are six methods in total, three of which use "special" decks (can still be used for your other card magic), and the other two use borrowed decks. All of them can be done blindfolded.
