Yikes! by Aldo Colombini

A stunning version of the 'wild card' theme.

An effect by Peter Duffie. Performed and explained by Aldo Colombini. A tremendous novelty and a big hit for your close-up act. A spectator cuts the deck and deals off four random cards. You now show a packet of seven cards - six of the cards have blank faces, the seventh is blank on both sides. The latter card is the special "image copier." The six blank-facers are laid out in pairs on the table. One by one, the image copier causes a selection to appear on each of the blank pairs. But that's only three of the selections - what about the fourth? In a dramatic...

Without Safety Net by Aldo Colombini

This is a lovely self-working small packet trick Aldo Colombini created from a trick published by Richard Vollmer.

Effect:

You show the spectator two face-up packs with four cards each, and a prediction - in the form of a face-down card - is placed on the table. The cards are the same in each pile, but their order is different. From a regular deck of cards, the spectator selects three cards. The values of these cards determine how many cards have to be moved from the top to the bottom in either of the piles. The spectator is even allowed to split the work between the piles. Say 5 cards...

Vortex: an incredible routine using two regular decks of cards by Aldo Colombini

A small ebook but what exciting contents! The routine uses just two regular decks of cards. Lewis Ganson on the pages of Magigram wrote,

“This is a really super 'Do as I do' routine. The routine starts in the classic way and then enlarges on the theme; the spectator and performer continuing to match cards from their respective decks until a whole series of apparent coincidences have occurred. The final display of matched cards is both amazing and spectacular."
The effect: A spectator freely selects a card from, say, a red-backed deck and the performer removes a card from a blue-backed deck. When turned...

Un petit ebook mais au contenu tellement tellement excitant ! La routine utilise seulement deux jeux de cartes ordinaires. Lewis Ganson a écrit dans les pages de Magigram,

« C'est réellement une formidable routine du genre « Faites Comme Moi ». La routine commence de manière classique, puis développe le thème, le spectateur et magicien continuant à faire correspondre des cartes à partir de leur jeu respectif jusqu'à ce que toute une série de coïncidences évidentes ne soit intervenue. L'étalage final des cartes assorties est à la fois incroyable et spectaculaire ».

Varietà by Aldo Colombini

In Italia, dal 1988 ad Ottobre 1990, Aldo Colombini, che allora era conosciuto col nome d'arte di Fabian, curò personalmente , insieme al Mago Elliott, una Rivista di Magia e Cabaret che, insieme con Elliott, decisero di chiamare Varietà.

Purtroppo non ebbe allora il successo sperato e dopo soli due anni dovette chiudere per insufficienza di abbonati, trattandosi di una rivista indipendente e pubblicata al di fuori dei Circoli Magici.

Ma il materiale incluso nei rarissimi numeri che siamo riusciti a rintracciare e raccogliere è di assoluto pregio, e presentava, tra gli altri, per...

Una stupefacente routine di tre effetti concatenati con carte tagliate a metà

Effetto

Un mazzo di carte tagliate in due è mescolato e distribuito in due porzioni. Una di queste è scelta da uno spettatore che la taglia e la lascia a parte.

I due mazzetti sono distribuiti prendendo nello stesso tempo le rispettive carte in cima distribuendole fino alla fine contemporaneamente. La carta che corrisponde alla rovesciata nell'altro mazzetto è lasciata...

Twists of Fate by Aldo Colombini

Only one routine but what an effect - and completely self working! This must be one of the strongest self-working effects there is. Based on the Eddie Joseph principle “Staggered” you have here a unique, fantastic routine in five phases, one stronger than the other where the cards match even though everything appears controlled by the spectator. The finale is a ‘staggering’ match of all the cards! You will have fun learning it and you will make a reputation out of this routine. Uses any deck of cards.

It is quite an achievement for Aldo to take a strong effect and make it even stronger by streamlining...

A packet of cards is removed and a spectator moves a certain number of cards from top to bottom. You are NOT looking during this. You take back the packet, spread it and a card is face up indicating the amount of cards moved by the spectator. The spectator repeats the same action (maybe selecting a different number of cards) and you place the packet in HIS pocket. Remove one card from his pocket...
