Raphaël Czaja

(1983 - )

Born in the North of France, Raphaël became seriously interested in magic after his father read an ad of a French magic shop. A few days later, he received a catalog full of professional magic tricks and his first purchase was a Brainwave Deck. At the same period, a popular French magician Sylvain Mirouf performed card tricks almost every day on a TV show and Raphaël understood all the potential of a single deck of cards.

His favorite magicians are Aldo Colombini, Peter Duffie, Jay Sankey and Dominique Duvivier. Otherwise, he is particularly interested in magic with rubber bands and ropes. He also has a great passion for cinema and is currently writing his first full feature lenght screenplay.

2D ACAIN

2D ACAIN by Raphaël CzajaIn 2009, Raphael was working on a two-deck ACAAN (that became the bonus routine of this ebook) when the italian magician Tommaso Guglielmi shared his new creation with me... that was based on the exact same method! He spontaneously gave me the permission to release the basic routine with my name on it and now, more than three years later, I can publicly say that Tommaso is a real class act! Just below is the basic original routine that the both of us devised independently. Ordinary decks. No sleights. Different outcomes at each performance. It is inspired by Cameron Francis' Convergence.

2D ACAIN: Two decks of cards are introduced....

ACOCAVAN

ACOCAVAN by Raphaël CzajaFrom the creator of the best-seller SCAMP comes a new effect based on the ACAAN plot. Although it is not the "Grail", it is direct to the point with a minimum of sleights and a few subtleties for a maximum impact!

EFFECT: The magician shuffles a deck of cards and asks a spectator to cut the deck a first time to determine a suit and a second time to determine a value (the suit and the value of the cards he cut to, let's say a Diamond and a 4). Then, the magician asks the spectator to imagine where his card may lie into the deck and thus, to think of any number. The spectator reveals he's thinking...

B'yond the Wave

B'yond the Wave by Raphaël CzajaEffect: Four cards are selected from a deck and tabled face down in a row. The first selection is turned face up, it is the 10S. The magician explains he has previously turned one card over with the same suit in a four-of-a-kind packet. An odd-backed packet is introduced as the magician says he was actually so sure of the spectator's choice that he replaced the other cards with Jokers. He displays one face down card between three Jokers. The card is turned face up, it is a Spade! The card is replaced into the face up packet that is placed momentarily onto the deck. The card has changed into...

Biddle Juice

Biddle Juice by Raphaël CzajaTwo cards are selected by Topper and Ramada and lost into the deck. The magician removes five cards from it. Topper confirms that one of them is his selection and the packet is placed between his palms. Ramada selects an indifferent card that is placed between her palms. After a magical gesture, Topper's card disappears from his packet. The magician says that playing cards like to switch places and that Topper's card should be reversed in the middle of the deck whereas Ramada's card should have switched places with her random card. One card is found reversed in the middle of the deck... but...

Detour: an incredible double prediction effect

Detour: an incredible double prediction effect by Raphaël CzajaEffect:

The magician displays a pack of cards and a prediction (one card between the two Jokers, all held by a rubber band). He deals the cards from the top of the pack until the spectator says "stop". He is asked to remember the suit of his first selection.

The deck is gathered and the value of the first card is used to find another card. He is asked to remember the value of his second selection.

So basically, a card has just been made up. The deck is gathered, turned face up and the value of the second selection is used to find a third card. Wouldn't it be great if it was the made-up...

Do You Like Scary Movies?

Do You Like Scary Movies? by Raphaël Czaja
"Raphael has a new packet effect based on the Friday The 13th movies that is off the chain!" - Cameron Francis
You display a packet of blue backed cards as you offer to explain to the audience your own remake of the “Friday the 13th” movie... with just a bunch of cards! Each card represents a character from the movie.

First, you introduce the Jack of Spades which symbolizes the killer. You explain that a legend says that a young boy tragically drowned in a lake during summer camp because the counselors didn't pay attention. You then show that blue waves have magically appeared onto its face. But...

Double Fatality

Double Fatality by Raphaël CzajaTrick #1 - FATAL: A spectator mentally creates one card by choosing a value and a suit in a deck. The magician points out a prediction in full-view from the beginning and the spectator reveals his thought-of card for the first time. The prediction and the spectator's card are a perfect match!

Trick #2 - LETHAL: The magician explains that every magician has a lucky card - the King of Diamonds in his case. The spectator mentally creates his lucky card by choosing a value and a suit in a deck. The magician points out another deck of cards in full-view from the start, saying that he moved his...

Easy Simple Prediction

Easy Simple Prediction by Raphaël CzajaEffect:

The magician spreads a packet of five cards (from Ace to 5 of mixed suits) face up and a spectator thinks of one of them. The magician squares the packet, telling the spectator that among these cards, there is one card with a different back. The spectator says the name of his card out loud. For example, the 3 of Diamonds. The magician shows that any of the other cards could have been thought of and he deals the selected card on the table. He turns the remaining cards face down and clearly shows only Bicycle backs. The spectator turns over his card revealing the only Tally-Ho backed...

Final Countdown

Final Countdown by Raphaël CzajaA card is selected and outjogged from a deck which is then put on the table. Now, you bring out a packet of five prediction cards that you show to have all red backs and fronts (all different), saying one of them must be the selection.

You explain that the cards will help you, not to find the right one, but to eliminate the four wrong ones!

After some magical gesture:

  • One card gets a cross drawn onto its face.
  • The back of a second card turns blue.
  • A third card reverses itself.
  • A message appears on the back of a fourth card saying: "NOT THIS ONE!".
You're left with one card, let's...

Find The Royal Flush

Find The Royal Flush by Raphaël CzajaA packet of cards is introduced for a "kind of" poker game in which the spectator cannot lose. The magician explains he has two rewards for him. At the end of the dealings, if the spectator's hand beats the magician's, he gets a $20 bill. If his hand is a royal flush, he gets the magician's credit card. And if the magician's hand beats the spectator's, nobody loses anything. Fair enough?

The cards are then dealt accordingly to the spectator's choices between the magician and him - five cards each. When the spectator spreads his cards face up on the table, he has four cards from a royal flush...

In Case Hof Emergency

In Case Hof Emergency by Raphaël CzajaYou remove the four Jacks (your "emergency cards") from a deck and table them. A card is selected - let's say the 2H - and lost into the deck. You concentrate, reveal that his card is the QS, and produce it in one cut. But the spectator tells you this is not his card. You wave your "emergency" packet over the deck: The Jack of the same suit as his selection, the JH, turns face up. Then, the three remaining cards are turned over: They have changed into the 2S, 2D and 2C! Finally, you spread the deck: The JS, JD and JC are face up in the middle of the deck, with one face-down card between the...

Prediction Impossible

Prediction Impossible by Raphaël CzajaEFFECT #1: The magician opens up a card wallet displaying some playing cards torn in four pieces, each of them held by a rubber band. He explains, "Those are a few of the wrong predictions I've made in the past. Since then, I've learnt to keep being positive. For example, this one was wrong at the time it was made, but what if it was just right today?" You move this one aside and pocket the rest.

A spectator selects any two-digit number up to 50. The deck is dealt accordingly to make up a card, selecting a value and a suit. Despite the huge range of possible outcomes, the prediction that...

Progressive Divination

Progressive Divination by Raphaël CzajaFor a divination experiment, a spectator grabs a shuffled deck and the magician turns his back. First, the spectator cuts to a "leader" card that is placed face up in the deck. He stares at his card as the magician establishes a mental connection with him. The magician concentrates and notes on his business card what the color of the playing card may be. One chance out of two but it is just the beginning.

Then, the magician explains that he still needs two other cards and the "leader" card will help lead us to them. The spectator spells the value of the leader card, counting one card for...

Read, Spell and Kill

Read, Spell and Kill by Raphaël CzajaBasically, two thought-of cards selected from a thoroughly shuffled deck are revealed by the magician. The first one is found by reading in the spectator's mind. The second one is found by spelling the name of the first card revealed, dealing one card for each letter from the top of the deck. The card at the last letter is turned over: It is the second thought-of card!

Here is the performance in detail: The deck is shuffled by the magician and a spectator. A second spectator does the last shuffle and the magician turns his back to them. Spectator 1 is asked to remove a small packet from the...

Spellbound

Spellbound by Raphaël CzajaEffect: Using a full deck of playing cards, a spectator cuts to one card that the magician asks him to remember. He selects a second card by secretly spelling the name of his thought-of card, dealing one card for each letter, and pockets it. In the first climax, the magician is able to divine the card that the spectator is thinking of. In the second climax, the pocketed card and a prediction (tabled from the beginning) are revealed: They are identical!

No gaff. No sleight. Basically self-working. This routine uses a regular deck and an ordinary odd-backed card only. Everything can be examined. ...
