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.

1st edition, 2000.

Table of Contents

TWO’S COMPANY: You remove the four Kings from the deck, then have two spectators each select a card. Both selections are lost into the deck. You now offer the audience a choice of Kings, the red ones or the black ones. They might opt for the red Kings. You pick these up and turn them over whereupon the first spectator’s selection appears reversed between them. You place this sandwich on the table then pick up the two black Kings, which you place face up on top...

ACQUIESCENCE: Two spectators each lay out pairs of cards from freely shuffled packets. Despite any constraints you have accurately predicted the outcome. Miraskillesque perhaps?

THE FLEEING ACES: The four Aces travel from one half of the deck to the other and capture a previously selected card.

FOUR TO THE FORE: A spelling effect based on an Henry Christ premise. Two single Bottom Deals are required but they happen on the off-beat and a fine technique is not necessary.

1st edition, 2000.

Table of Contents

BACKLOG: You spread the deck with the faces upwards and invite a spectator to select any card - free choice. This is left face up on the table. You give him the deck and he now spells the name of his card - first the suit, then the value. This produces two random cards. The values of these cards are added - they might be a 3 and a 10 = 13. When the spectator turns his card over it has the number 13 boldly written on the back!

PSYCHOGRAPHY: Before you begin, you remove a card from the deck and, without showing its face, you place it between a spectator’s hands. This, you state, is a sprit photograph that has yet to be taken. You now allow another spectator a free choice of any card in the deck and have him sign his name across the face. This card is lost into the middle of the deck which you then give to a spectator. You now remove two cards from your pocket - these two cards have completely blank faces - these, you state,...

A SENSE OF FREEDOM: This is based on a number prediction by Shigeo Futagawa using four pieces of cardboard (See "Stunumbers" in Karl Fulves' Self-Working Number Magic, Dover). The only weak point was that the prediction couldn't be written until an advanced stage in the proceedings. The following effect uses playing cards...

Untold

Untold by Peter DuffieFifteen clever tricks with cards.

1st edition, 2002.

Table of Contents

SEVEN DOWN: Seven Down was inspired by Ed Marlo's "Magic Seven."

DRAW POKER: This trick came about as a direct result of a conversation with Roy Walton, who had a card problem which he quickly solved and published in OPUS.

FALLING: The following routine is based on Roy Walton's superb "Cascade". Here several Jumbo cards are caused to mutate in a bizarre and visual manner. This was originally called "The Mutant Hand," but I changed the title for this ebook in view of the recently marketed Cascade variation "Mutanz"...

A Pain in the Ace: You push a selected card into the middle of the deck - it rises to the top. You push it back into the middle and flip over the top card. Unfortunately it's not the selection. It's an Ace. You - or a spectator - give the deck a fair cut to bury the face up Ace in the middle. Upon spreading the deck all four Aces are now face up together in the middle - but there's one face down card caught in the middle. This proves to be the awkward selection.

Angels May Shuffle But The Devil Still Deals

He achieves with this idea extremely strong poker deal effects.

The Ultimate Magic Square (King of Hearts)

The Ultimate Magic Square (King of Hearts) by Chris Wasshuber
"I've been doing magic 40 years, and this may be one of my five favorite tricks. Excellent thinking. Hard to top." - Clyde Hayre, US.

A spectator is asked to throw three fair dice (this is an absolute fair throw, or even just a mental throw - no force here). From the number fairly thrown you construct a perfect magic square. For a kicker the cards are put together and the face of a King of Hearts appears.

There is no palming of cards or exchanging of decks or anything like it. You work with 16 cards and 16 cards only without any sleight-of-hand.

You get 16 specially printed cards...

Re-Attached

Re-Attached by Lance AckermanThe performer takes a deck of cards, lets the spectator pick a card and gives it back. The performer then takes the card, rips it into 4 pieces and slowly, one by one, the cards morph back into place as they started out even before they were ripped. At the end of the routine, the dents are visually ironed out and, in the spectators hands, is their card- perfectly normal!

An envelope is introduced, and the spectator is asked to open it up, and remove one of the pieces of paper it contains, and to examine it if they wish. After the paper is selected, the freely chosen card is visually ripped into four pieces and wrapped up inside of the chosen piece of paper,...

Ovation

Ovation by Stephen Minch & Martin A. NashOvation is the card act that, for the last few years, Martin Nash reserved strictly for his use in the Close-Up Room at the Magic Castle. For a long time that was the only place one could witness it. Later he also used it for special occasions in his regular public work. This act was designed to impress and fool not only laymen but magicians and magic-wise laymen as well. Its proof of success is the many strations of seemingly unlimited card skill ever devised. It is not a self-working routine. It will take practice. But the end gives an impression far in excess of its means. Once mastered it...

The most demanding sleights occur, ironically, during the introductory sequence in which nothing happens. In this prologue to the magic, Martin demonstrates several methods in which people shuffle cards. While doing so, he executes a faro shuffle (which needn't be perfect) and a push through riffle shuffle. If these shuffles are not...

Many magicians consider the faro shuffle to be one of the toughest moves in card magic. The thought of performing consistant, perfect faros seems an impossible dream - until you read this ebook.

The ability to do perfect faro shuffles is a powerful weapon in the card magician’s arsenal of sleights. It is a genuine shuffle; the cards are truly being mixed. But it is also a controlled shuffle, meaning that the resulting order of the cards is not random. For this reason, it is an excellent adjunct to memorized deck work.

In addition to the ebook you will get a video explanation of the shotgun move. The video is in wmv format.

Fallout

Fallout by Tom Richardson"Fallout" is an impromptu and devilishly clever, mentalist’s card to pocket. The spectator chooses a card from a deck that he has shuffled, and returns the card. The magician never sees the faces of any of the cards. Yet he still manages to read the spectator’s mind and work out the name of the card. The magician reaches down into his pocket and removes the selected card.

No Forces! The spectator does almost all the work! There's only one real 'move' in the entire routine...The card can even be signed!

You will receive a manuscript explaining all aspects of the trick in high detail...

The World's Fastest Card Trick

The World's Fastest Card Trick by Joe KarsonThis is the epitome of Karson's comedic talent. Other than "Zombie" this trick is often the only other thing remembered about Joe Karson. When he published this effect, Karson was riding the crest of his wave of popularity. The World's Fastest Card Trick was often a show stopper when he performed it at various magic conventions and shows.

Karson explains in this ebook the entire work on this trick. He gives the reader the presentation, the method, the patter, and most importantly, the timing. This trick literally got screams of laughter.

Effortless Card Magic

Effortless Card Magic by Peter DuffieEffortless is probably just as apropriate or misleading as self-working. It doesn't mean that these tricks don't require any effort on your side. You have to read the descriptions, remember the sequence of actions and perform the act - entertain, which in my book is neither self-working nor effortless. But what these terms try to convey is that you will not need to master difficult moves or finger breaking sleights to perform these effects. And they are very good effects. Often an 'effortless' trick can be performed to greater effect because the performer can pay more attention to audience managment,...

Cut!

Cut! by R. ShaneA card routine that is murder. This ain’t your usual card trick. Anyone who knows Shane and his work knows he likes to tell stories with my magic. Old stories, new stories, morality tales, dirty jokes...it’s all brain fodder as far as he's concerned. Therefore, it shouldn’t come as a shock that “Cut!” is story. But it’s a grisly little tale ending with a bloody murder. Probably not a good routine for restaurant work. But it is a good routine for those moments when you want to entertain and shock your audience a bit, and audience whose sensibilities can handle a little blood flowing...
