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.

Card Stalking

Card Stalking by Al E. SmithAnother collection of pasteboard this-and-that crammed into 50-odd (very odd) pages pages. Actually, including titles and whatnot, there's 60-odd pages. Tricks, thoughts, subtleties and more. All specially cobbled together to tickle the palate of the discerning and infuriate the sad few who profess not to like card stuff. Nothing difficult, complicated or gimmick-strewn. A bit of fun for fun-inclined persons.

Stomp

Stomp by Ralf Rudolph (Fairmagic)Let someone choose a card, and then put the card back in the deck. The spectator himself can shuffle the cards, and then lay them on the ground, face down. You now claim to find the card, without your hands touching them. Now you step on the cards on the floor, and show the spectator a card, which is underneath your shoe. But It is not the card the spectator has chosen. But no problem. You step a second time on the floor, lift up your shoe, and now the card has turned into the one, chosen by the spectator!

You require:

  1. A Reel with a break
  2. Some double sided scotch tape
  3. Some magician...

Untraceable

Untraceable by Raphaël CzajaThe descriptions below are purposely very detailed so you have an accurate transcription of what is seen by the spectator. Note that he can genuinely shuffle the deck as he wants (overhand, riffle, hindu, etc). No sleight or secret move from the magician. No marking system. No gaff or any hidden gimmick. Only use a regular deck.

EFFECT #1: While shuffling a deck of cards, you proclaim to have a sixth sense that enables you to feel things around you without the need for seeing, hearing or touching them; like detecting pulse beats from a close distance. To prove it, you invite a spectator to...

Four Ace Intros

Four Ace Intros by Ken de CourcyFrom the introduction:
The Four Ace Trick is deservedly popular. There are many versions, from the semi-automatic to the almost impossible finger-flinging variety, so it's within the scope of every performer. It starts, necessarily, with the abstraction of the four Aces. One can simply run through the pack, locate them and toss them out. Or, if you want considerably more impact, you can produce them magically. That's what this is all about ... producing the Aces in an interesting way as a lead-in to whatever Four Ace Trick you normally do. Here, you'll find both easy and more complicated...

Playing Canasta

Playing Canasta by Jon RacherbaumerThe presentations in this manuscript are homage to the nonmanipulative, off-the-cuff approach taken by Chan Canasta.

The material is stuff Jon has published elsewhere, mostly piecemeal. The thrust of the ebook, though, is how these effects are PRESENTED in a CANASTA WAY. This then is its organizing principle. It is basically designed to demonstrate Canasta's approach. The material is easy and commercial.

B'tween

B'tween by David DevlinDavid Devlin has floored everyone he has shown this incredible effect. Even members of his family were nailed. This is an amazing piece of mental magic. Based on an array of different effects and principles, this is certain to go into your working repertoire. It is self-working and can even be performed impromptu (at least the majority of the effect can be performed impromptu)!

The effect is this: A deck is shuffled, and two predictions are made on the backs of two business cards. One is a number and the other is the name of a playing card. Two spectators deal cards in turn until they each...

The Gambling Magician

The Gambling Magician by B. W. McCarronFrom the Introduction:
Within the pages of this volume, the reader will find many effects which may easily be incorporated into a program of exposes, or as part of a manipulative act. None of the effects discussed in the first section require sleights more difficult than the doublelift. Many a performer will want to credit the occurrences to his own skill - even though none is involved. While at no time should the Lecturer attribute the happenings to "magic", a fairly plausible cause is sleight-of-hand.

Included in Section II of this volume, I have given the reader an illustrated...

Sequacious Aces

Sequacious Aces by Ken de CourcyFrom the introduction:
"Four Ace Tricks" there are in plenty and most are effective when properly handled; at that, they can rarely be as telling as a complete routine. Here is my own Four Ace Routine formed over the years of bits and pieces from everywhere. I've found it extremely useful, for example, at dinners, and also at parties where I've been asked 'to do a trick '...commonly known as 'singing for one's supper'. I would do this, and no more. It proved sufficient yet always left them wanting, which is how it should be. A modicum of sleight-of-hand is needed....

Abacus is a principle that opens doors that no other has done before and is being performed by professionals worldwide.
