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.

Raphaël Czaja

Transprint by Raphaël Czaja
Raphael's routine is a great effect and it should immediately score a big hit! - Aldo Colombini
A spectator chooses a card from a deck, for example the Jack of Hearts. The magician now shows a packet with four blank-faced cards and normal backs. The spectator freely chooses and signs two stickers of different shapes and colors and puts one on the face and one on the back of his card. From now, he keeps this card on the table under his hand. One by one, three of the blank cards change into a Jack of Hearts. For the climax, the magician makes a transposition between the faces of the last blank card and...

Easy Simple Prediction

Raphaël Czaja

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

Raphaël Czaja

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...

Knocked For Six

Raphaël Czaja

Knocked For Six by Raphaël CzajaKnocked for Six is a project gathering six card tricks that are really strong yet easy to do:
  • In Case Hof Emergency: You remove the four Jacks (your 'emergency cards') from a deck and table them. A card is selected, let's say the 2H, and lost back into the deck. You concentrate and reveal that his card is the QS, and you produce it in one cut! The spectator tells you this is not his card. You wave your "emergency" packet over the deck and the Jack of the same suit as his selection, the JH, turns face up. Then, the three remaining cards are turned over: they've changed into the 2S, 2D and...

ACOCAVAN

Raphaël Czaja

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...

Do You Like Scary Movies?

Raphaël Czaja

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...

The RnB Project by Raphaël Czaja
"It is really great. I especially liked his Poker Wave, but Revolution and Oddpen Prediction are also excellent. Raph is to be congratulated on three well thought out routines that are definite 'workers'." - Stephen Tucker

"A lot of magicians seem to be put off by effects that require two decks. Let me put those fears to bed and say that all three of the effects in this ebook have the potential to hit hard." - Donny Orbit

"Poker Wave is a strong, well constructed effect with a surprise ending that will blindside the participant. [...] Oddpen Prediction is a powerful, seemingly fair rendition [of Paul Curry's classic]." - Tom Frame (Genii...

"Have you ever been in a situation in which you regretted not following your first intuition? Intuition is a very intriguing concept for scientists and psychologists. It provides us with beliefs that we cannot necessarily justify. Today, we're going to re-enact one of those experiments and hopefully this may lead to a successful ending."

Prediction Impossible

Raphaël Czaja

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...

Trimpromptu Card Magic

Raphaël Czaja

Trimpromptu Card Magic by Raphaël CzajaThe title speaks for itself. Raphael has collected three commercial and off-beat routines that are impromptu and basically effortless. The deck is freely shuffled by the spectator before each performance. No set-ups, no duplicates, no extra props.

MISSING IN ACTION: Two cards are glanced and lost into the deck. You remove three face-down cards and get rid of two, keeping one that you claim is spectator 1's card. He says his card is one that has been put away. Yet he is unable to find it because it is the one in your hand! As spectator 2's card is not among those, you reveal it by mind-reading! ...

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...

2D ACAIN

Raphaël Czaja

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.

Detour: an incredible double prediction effect

Raphaël Czaja

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...

Find The Royal Flush

Raphaël Czaja

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...

Read, Spell and Kill

Raphaël Czaja

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...
