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 Living End

J. G. Thompson Jr.

The Living End by J. G. Thompson Jr.Over 200 different impromptu take-a-card trick endings.

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 that used two decks. This is a streamlined and more commercial one deck version.)

The Svengali Fooler

Devin Knight

The Svengali Fooler by Devin KnightThis is a new effect from Devin Knight's recent East Coast lecture tour. It uses a special Svengali deck in a way that magicians will never suspect. So you know, you will need to own or buy a Svengali Deck and gimmick it to do this trick. Take this to your next magic club meeting and puzzle the members.

EFFECT: The performer shows a deck of cards and mixes them. He invites a spectator to stop him as he deals the cards face down on the table. The person can stop him anywhere in the deal, there are no restrictions. The performer deals until the person says stop. The performer shows the card...

Hull-A-Palooza: 25 Devilish Strategies of Divination

Jon Racherbaumer

Hull-A-Palooza: 25 Devilish Strategies of Divination by Jon RacherbaumerFrom the Preface:
Conjurers (as entertainers) are agents of simulated magical phenomenon. And most theorists would likely agree that such simulations should be direct and powerful. For example, the phenomenon is prophesying a mentally selected card, begins when the agent writes down or verbalizes a prediction beforehand. Next, a spectator names a card and, finally, the named card matches the predicted card. This magical result, as just described, is almost tantamount to telling a person what they are thinking as they are thinking it. This is an ideal outcome.

The Off-Principle

N.I. Pectus

The Off-Principle by N.I. PectusSometimes we confuse progress and novelty. Not everything new is an improvement.

What the off principle offers is not newness but rather simplicity. The Off-principle is not trying to replace breaks, peeks or controls and yet it is making them less relevant. The off principle is not an advanced move or trick and yet it is able to improve almost every card trick. The off principle is complex in it s applications and yet simplifies almost any card trick you are about to perform.

Yesterday you used controls to keep track of the spectators card, now it is still possible but unnecessary. Yesterday...

Australian Aces

Nick Conticello

Australian Aces by Nick ConticelloThis e-book offers three similar effects all based on a singular premise.

1. Australian Aces: The performer casually shuffles a pack of cards, then hands it to a volunteer. The performer need not touch the cards for the duration of this feat. The volunteer cuts off roughly a quarter of the pack. The volunteer names any Ace freely. He spells its name and gives the packet an Australian Shuffle. The last card he holds is the Ace he named! The volunteer now spells the word 'Ace' and the Ace matching the color of the named Ace turns up. Finally the volunteer spells the suit of the named Ace and...

Distorted Siblings

David Devlin

Distorted Siblings by David DevlinDistorted Siblings combines the best aspects of several tricks by John Bannon, Max Maven, and Aldo Colombini. The routine is this:

A packet of red-backed cards and a packet of blue-backed cards are placed face-down on the table. It is explained that each packet contains the four kings and that one in each packet is face-up as a prediction. Two spectators each name a king. The named kings are in fact the face up kings. The kings are turned face down and it is shown that each king is in their opposite packets.

Each king is then placed back into its own packet. All four blue cards are together as are the red cards,...

Basic Training by Ian KendallBetween 2009 and 2011 a very special column appeared in M-U-M, the in house magazine for the Society of American Magicians.

The topics covered included all aspects of magic; cards and coins, balls, ropes and cups, stand up and close up, interspersed with real world performance hints and tips from someone who has spent time in the trenches.

Unknown Mentalist

Pskycards by Unknown MentalistThis is a quick playing card divination effect. The performer divines the card merely thought of by the participant and the best part is that there is no need of any physical deck of cards. Just one single business card is used.

There are no sleights, no stooges, no preshow, no peeks, no impressions, no outs, no tears. Nothing to reset and instantly repeatable for other participants.

The method is an old classic reworked for this effect. The underlying principle is very flexible and can be put to multiple uses with a little creativity.

A new design shared by Michael Lyth is included. Another cool...
