CONTENTS:

  • THEY ARE WHAT THEY EAT: A fun and very commercial Cannibal Cards effect with a twist.

Avik Dutta
The Vortex Principle: and other madnesses by Avik Dutta

Fresh from the success of his Confession and Oblivion manuscripts, Avik is back, this time with a short treatise on cards.

The star of this show is his 'Vortex principle' - a method for covertly spotting and controlling multiple cards from a fairly shuffled deck. One could describe it as a 'control in stages', because it is not one single movement you do to control a card. It is something you do while you casually shuffle your cards.

Next, comes an effect called "Any Card at Any Name", which employs an age-old principle to powerful effect.

The central section of the manuscript details 'The Narcissus...

Case 21: cards through case by Ben Howard

Effect:

This is not a card trick, it's a trick with cards.

The spectator freely selects, signs and returns the card from a shuffled deck. The illusionist explains that card tricks have become too complicated, and he wants to keep it simple and use just the selected card. The magician picks up the card case, still holding the deck, and shows the card case at all sides and completely empty.

The magician then places the deck square on the face of the card case. The front of the card case can be clearly seen as the cards are being placed. The card case with the deck on top is placed...

Peter Duffie
Quartet: four exclusive card effects by Peter Duffie

All the effects use simple fakes or subtleties to accomplish off-beat effects.

INTERNECINE is a novel version of the Tunnel Change and uses a small packet of cards. The cards appear to change places of their own accord. The performer demonstrates this phenomena further by causing two of the cards to change places in a very convincing manner. Finally the transposition is repeated and this time the change takes place visibly.

DICHOTOMY is a very strange prediction effect. A spectator chooses a card and tears it into two pieces. One of the pieces is destroyed and the other retained by the...

Faux Show by Cameron Francis

An amazing completely impromptu 5-phased card cheating demonstration. Only basic skill required and it uses a regular deck of cards.

PHASE 1: STACKING: You remove a bunch of black spot cards from the deck and the four Kings. The Kings are cut into the packet and four hands are dealt. You then show that each hand contains one King and three black spot cards. You gather up the hands and deal again. Now the four Kings are in one hand, but you saved the best hand for yourself, the four Aces!

PHASE 2: FALSE DEALING: You get rid of the spot cards and place the Kings on top of the Aces. You...
