One Red Hot Mother by David Devlin

There is a lot of magic crammed into this routine. Everything from a prediction, the finding of two selected and signed cards, and the transposition of the card's backs.

Here is the effect:

Phase 1: A single red backed card is placed off to one side, but is kept in full view throughout the proceedings. The performer states that there is one red card and one red card only. The spectator then selects any card and signs it (there is no force whatsoever). The card is returned to the center of the deck. The top card is shown, but it is not the signed card. The red backed card is turned over...

A Date With Fate by David Devlin

Effect: The performer displays a 12-month wall calendar. Each of the 366 days (Leap Year has been accounted for) has a single playing card assigned to it. No two days in each month has the same card assigned to it. So, for example, a month with 31 days in it contains 31 different cards. It is also pointed out that no one card appears more than once on any particular date. So the card that is assigned to the 15th of January is not found on the 15th of any other month.

A spectator is asked to call out any date that comes to mind. Suppose the date in June 5th. Now, another spectator is asked...

Esoteric Conspiracies: Cards by David Devlin

This is the first in a new series of videos by David Devlin. In this video, David teaches three of his best effects. These effects are not difficult to perform, but each one is a very hard-hitting effect. Here are the effects:

Boomerang: This will knock them on their butts. A deck with a blue back (which has been in use) has from it a card selected and signed. Two jokers with red backs are introduced and shown freely. The selected card is pushed into the center of the deck by the spectator. Without coming near the deck, the signed selection materializes between the jokers! Once again, the...

Packet Racket by David Devlin

David Devlin loves packet tricks. This new eBook contains nine of David's best packet tricks. (Volume two in this series is Packet Racket II.) Some use normal cards, some use gaffs, and some are impromptu. If you think you're getting a book about packet tricks that only magicians will appreciate, think again! This book is a terrific collection of tricks for laymen, restaurant workers, bar magicians, close-up workers, and everyone in between.

All of the tricks in this eBook are packet tricks, but most tend to have a feel of something a little bigger. Most of the effects use standard packet trick methodology...

Popcorn Routine by David Devlin

You are at the carnival. The sights, smells, and sounds are over-whelming. You come across a small stage with huge, colorful banners behind it. A man with a microphone walks onto the stage, and begins his bally. That's right! He is getting the crowd excited to see the Sideshow!

"Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, please gather around the stage. Another show is about to begin. We can't block the midway, so gather down and gather around. You are going to see the most amazing display of human anomaly so incredible you have to see it to believe it!

Ladies and Gentlemen, please help me welcome...

The Haunted by David Devlin

David Devlin has always loved all things scary and bizarre. As a 4 year old, he can remember watching monster movies with his father on Saturday Afternoons. Starting at the age of 5, he created "Spook Alleys" in his parents' bonus room. Every Halloween he dressed as something terrifying, and watched Bela Lugosi as Dracula, and Boris Karloff as Frankenstein. Even the music David listens to is seen by some people as "spooky". It only seemed natural that as David began really looking deeply at the presentation of magic that he would be drawn to the creepy and the bizarre.

If you are looking...

State of the Union by David Devlin

EFFECT: The performer hands an envelope to a spectator to hold. The performer then removes a deck of cards from its case. The cards are not playing cards, however. In this deck, each card bears the name of a state in the United States. The performer thumbs through the deck allowing the spectators to see that all of the cards are different (when I do this, I even tell them that in order to have a full, 52-card deck, I have added Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico). The deck is then divided into 4 approximately equal piles. A spectator now selects one of those piles to use in the experiment, and...

Time Out by David Devlin

EFFECT: The performer jots down a prediction on a small piece of paper, folds it into quarters, and drops it into a coffee cup. A spectator is now asked to name a time. She says, "7:35". She now reaches into the coffee cup, and removes the slip of paper, opens it up, and reads the time. Of course, it is 7:35.

  • No one-ahead
  • The spectator does not write anything down
  • No nail-writers
  • No math or spelling type force
  • 99% impromptu
This effect, in part, involves a new psychological force that is original with David Devlin. The great part of this effect is that this becomes a demonstration...

Intuition by David Devlin

A cased deck is placed on the table. You remove your wallet, and also place it on the table. Both are on the table, and they are there in FULL view before ANYTHING happens. You tell the spectators that you removed one card from the deck, and put it in your wallet. A spectator then makes a series of choices bringing her to one card. The spectator herself removes the deck from the case, and deals the cards one at a time to the table. There are only 51 cards. The thought of card is missing. You then open your wallet, and remove a card. It is the thought of card!

This is a "new" method for the...

Guilty as Sin Aces by David Devlin

This is a great opener for any routine or act, which uses the four aces. The inspiration for this came from David Regal's "Deep Guilt Aces".

Before you chalk this up to "another ace cutting trick", take a look at the features:

  • No rough/smooth.
  • No short cards. No long cards. No thick cards.
  • No memorization.
  • No sleight-of-hand.
  • No "messing with the deck" after each cut. When the spectator cuts the cards, neatness doesn't count. You never miss.
  • Totally self-working!

The Mark of Abigail by David Devlin

Abigail was an evil witch, the high priestess of an evil coven. On the 7th day of July, 1777 the people of her small community convicted her of witchcraft, and had her put to death. Abigail was nailed to her coffin with 7 silver spikes. One through each arm, hand, and knee. The last of the 7 was drawn through her mouth so that she could never rise and cause evil again! The coven's mark was then placed on a rune, and also onto a small piece of wood. These were mixed with other runes and pieces of wood with counterfeit symbols. The superstition was that Abigail could only rise again if one who...

Equivo-Lock by David Devlin

Equivo-Lock is David's version of Seven Keys to Baldpate by Annemann. An ungimmicked padlock and seven keys are given to a spectator. The spectator tries all seven keys and finds out that none of the keys will open the lock. The performer now produces an eighth key, which does open the lock. The spectator now relocks the padlock, and the keys are placed into a wine glass. The keys are then mixed. The spectator now uses her powers of intuition to eliminate all but one of the eight keys. The selected key is tried in the lock and the lock opens!

The lock is not gimmicked and maybe completely examined....

Thought of Card at Thought of Number by David Devlin

A deck is shuffled. While the performer's back is turned, one spectator selects and remembers a card, which he then loses into the deck. No one knows where this card is. Its identity is known only to the spectator. Now, a second spectator merely thinks of a number. The performer mixes the cards further, and spreads them face up to show the cards to be completely mixed. The second spectator now, for the 1st time, reveals her thought of number. The spectator is handed the deck. She deals the cards one at a time until she reaches her thought of number. The card arrived at is the card being thought...

Blind Date by David Devlin

Effect: The performer introduces a deck of cards that has swimsuit models on the cards. It is explained to a male spectator that he is going to go on a date with one of these 52 girls. All he has to do is psychically determine her phone number.

You bring out 5 cards, which are numbered 1 through 10. All of the odd numbers are on one side of the cards, and all of the even numbers are on the other side of the cards. In other words, the card marked with a 1 on one side is marked with a 2 on the other side. The others are, of course, 3/4, 5/6, 7/8, and 9/10. You tell the spectator that you will...

Bookworm: The Ultimate Impromptu Book Test Act by David Devlin

Here is the act exactly as the audience sees it:

The performer asks for the loan of three paperback novels, a piece of paper, and a pen or pencil. The performer says, "I have a feeling about one of you, and I think I have a pretty good idea about something that is going to be significant to you a little later on." The performer then writes something on the paper, folds it up, and hands it to one of the audience members.

Three audience members are now selected to participate in the tests. Participant #1 selects a book, opens it up to a random page and remembers a word. The other participants,...

Mind Control by David Devlin

Back in 2001 Brad Burt produced David Eldridge's booklet, Mind Control. In the booklet are David's thoughts on Equivoque, or The Magician's Choice Force. Brad said, "(the effects David has created using Equivoque) are subtle and maximally deceptive, and deliver a kind of pure effect that can be the highlight of a professional show."

David Devlin has now reproduced this booklet in e-book format. In it are detailed explanations of how Equivoque works and techniques that make it deceptive. There are routines to get you started, including a routine in which a spectator blindly sets a wristwatch...

David's ESP Trick by David Devlin

(not to be confused with David’s E.S.P. Routine)

In effect, the performer lays out five cards, each of which has an ESP symbol on in. All of the cards are different and unprepared. Attention is now drawn to a small coin envelope, which, as the performer explains, contains a duplicate of one of the cards on the table. This is the prediction, and is kept in full view throughout the entire proceedings. A spectator now uses his mind to determine which four of the five cards are eliminated. The spectator makes real and honest decisions throughout the elimination process. The envelope is now opened, and it is found...

David's ESP Routine by David Devlin

David Devlin, the guy who brought you Coincidence & Fate, gives you a three-phase routine with an E.S.P. deck. And best of all, the entire routine is self-working!

Phase 1: The deck is shown to consist of five different symbols repeated five times. The cards are then mixed and the squared deck is placed face-down in front of a spectator. The mentalist turns his back to the spectator, and tells her to cut the deck wherever she wishes, and to complete the cut. Once that is done she is to take the top card of the deck (the card she freely cut to, no force!), look at it and then hold it behind her back so that...

Back Lash by David Devlin

This is a fun routine in which two cards are selected from two different colored packets. The selected cards trade packets 3 times, each time seemingly more impossible than the last. The methods are intriguing because the "move" comes after the effect. At first glance, this routine will appear complicated and convoluted. However, after working through the routine, and getting comfortable and familiar with it, you will see that it is rather simple.

Word 4 Word by David Devlin

EFFECT: A deck of 52 cards is freely shown. Each card bears a single word. All 52 words are different. The mentalist mixes the cards and hands the deck to a spectator. The mentalist now turns his back to the spectator and puts his hands behind his back. The spectator now makes a random and free choice of one of the words. However, the word is placed sight unseen into the spectator’s pocket. So, even he has no idea which word he has chosen. The deck is returned to the mentalist’s hands. With his back still to the spectator, he instantly calls out a word. The spectator removes the card from...

Coincidence and Fate by David Devlin
To significantly improve on an effect by Max Maven is a hard thing to do for anybody. But David has achieved this feat here with his Coincidence and Fate. One could even say that he has "out-maxed Maven!" - Chris Wasshuber
A shuffled ESP deck is placed on the table. A spectator rolls a pair of dice until satisfied. Using the total on the dice, the spectator deals down into the deck, and places the card at that number off to the side unseen. The deck is reassembled, and a second spectator repeats the process. When the two randomly selected cards are turned over, they match. The performer explains that...

Quarterly Returns by David Devlin

In effect, a card is selected and signed. The card is then cleanly torn into four separate pieces. The pieces are then placed between the fingers ala The Multiplying Billiard Balls, and the hands are otherwise empty (they really are!). The pieces are then gathered up one at a time. Each side of each piece is clearly shown. The bundled pieces then instantly pop open in a "flash". The card is fully restored and given to the spectator to keep as a souvenir.

Illusive Three Card Monte by David Devlin

The performer shows three cards: two jokers, and the queen of hearts. The queen of hearts is the money card. All the spectators have to do is follow the queen. No matter how hard they try, it just isn't possible. The queen is anywhere but where they think she is. Finally, in an effort to make it easier to follow, one of the jokers is set aside. The queen is mixed with the one remaining joker. Instantly, the queen has vanished leaving only two jokers in your hands. The "joker" that was set aside, and has been in full view the entire time is turned over and is found to be the missing queen. The...

Four cards are shown. They are the Four Aces. The cards are given a "twist" and when the cards are again counted it is seen that one of the aces has turned face down. This is repeated three more times, each time an ace has turned face down until all four aces are face down. The magician offers to explain how the trick was accomplished. The cards are again counted, and it is found that the magician was cheating. There are really five cards in the packet. The magician states that five cards make a poker hand, and as long as he is cheating he might as well give himself the best hand possible. The...

Devlin Cups and Balls by David Devlin

This is not an ordinary Cups & Balls routine. In this routine the balls are three different colors. The cups are ordinary, yet many magicians will suspect a chop cup set. This routine is nice for the trade show performer in that it resets instantly.

Includes a bonus routine with the Rub-A-Dub-Dub patter.
