(Benny) Ben Harris
Alida: Little Winged One by (Benny) Ben Harris
"A cool and animated levitation of a card or dollar bill... EASY TO MAKE!"
My goodness, this little effect created a shit-storm when it was released in 2000! I don't think the attacks had been so brutal since Cosmosis (in the mid 1980s). Anyway, this simple and effective idea was loved by some (see, for example, Richard Kaufman in Genii Magazine), and hated by others (see, for example, Michael Close in Magic Magazine). Ben relishes dividing opinion, and Alida certainly did that.

However, it was also a genuine stepping stone in the thought processes that would eventually lead to Enlightenment: The Ultimate Floating Card - which is way superior. So, controversial...

Rich Marotta
Fair is Fair by Rich Marotta

A deck is shuffled by a spectator. A card is picked in a fair and open manner. The card is returned and the deck is shuffled again by the spectator. The performer takes out four cards, one of the four is the spectator chosen card. The chosen card vanishes leaving only three cards in the performer's hands. The card appears face-up in the tabled deck.

R. Paul Wilson
Wild with the Ladies by R. Paul Wilson

Michael Skinner
Michael Skinner Interview by Michael Skinner

Michael Skinner tells stories from his early years in magic such as meeting Eddie Fechter and Ed Marlo. This short interview was hosted by Roger Klause.

Both of these larger than life legends - Michael Skinner and Roger Klaus - have unfortunately passed away. Videos like these are time capsules allowing us to get closer to these legends, learn from their life, and understand them a little bit better.

Michael Skinner
Cut & Restored Rope by Michael Skinner

This is a wonderful classic cut and restored rope routine performed to a lovely script. The rope is cut and restored twice and in the end the rope vanishes only leaving a short piece behind in the spectator's hand.

Michael Skinner
Ten Peeks by Michael Skinner

The ace through 10 of Diamonds are inserted into the pack, each card at a different location. The deck is shuffled and then Michael produces each card one by one in different ways using pop out moves, cuts, and other flourishes.

This is an improvement of an effect popularized by Eddie Fechter. However Eddie produced each card the same way using the gymnastic ace production from the Paul LePaul book.

Martin A. Nash
A Hard Ace To Follow by Martin A. Nash

Featuring Infinity

Martin is demonstrating the difference between coincidence, or luck, and sleight-of-hand. This is a lovely routine where a spectator selects a card that is lost in the deck. The four aces are shown and one ace with the same suit as the spectators card magically turns face down while the aces are held by the spectator. Perhaps a coincidence. Then another card in the remaining deck turns face down. Luck?! The final climax when the two face-down cards are turned face-up is the transposition of an ace and the chosen card because the ace is found in the deck and the chosen card...

Martin Lewis
Sucker Silks by Martin Lewis

A very commercial routine where all is in the delivery and the script. Martin starts with a lovely Ping Pong ball gag. The main effect is the classic push a white handkerchief into your fist and pull out a red one. The method should be clear to everybody even though Martin will explain the basic mechanism and move. What you learn here are the lines and little bits of business that make this a commercial routine.

Tom Mullica
Band on the Run & Flying Match by Tom Mullica

For the first effect you will need a cigar. Take off the cellophane cover and have a spectator twist it into a little string. Then have them pull off the cigar band and put it on the cellophane string. Both ends are held by the spectator. Under the cover of a handkerchief you free the band without destroying it.

The second effect is a neat stunt. While you attempt to light your cigarette with a match the lit match takes off and flies away - like a rocket.

Lee Earle
Deja-Vu-Ing by Lee Earle

Before the show you mail or give a spectator an envelope for safe keeping. At the show the spectator opens the envelope to find another smaller envelope inside. In this smaller envelope are three little pieces of paper. On these pieces of paper the performer recorded three dreams a few days earlier. The performer's dreams match the front page of today's newspaper as well as two spectator's thoughts.

Darwin Ortiz
Blind Aces by Darwin Ortiz

A deck is borrowed from one spectator and shuffled by another spectator. Darwin finds the four aces while his eyes are covered by the hands of a third spectator. He even discerns the suit of one of the aces by touch alone.

To pull this effect off you will need a bit of pre-show work.

Allan Ackerman
Double Dupe Poker Deal by Allan Ackerman

This is an extension of the Martin Gardner poker deal from Royal Road to Card Magic including ideas from Simon Aronson and John Bannon.

This effect starts out with a quick transformation. Two spectators select four cards in total. These four cards visually and instantly change to the four kings. Then Allan demonstrates how a cheat would stack a deck to achieve an advantage. The final climax is a Royal Flush dealt to himself and three kings to one of the spectators.

Juan Tamariz
Routine in Major D by Juan Tamariz

This is classic Juan Tamariz, a longer routine with four effects. It uses the Tamariz memorized deck. In the explanation part Juan gives you the exact sequence of his memorized deck. Important to know is that there are no difficult moves. Most of the heavy lifting is done by the stack itself and some false shuffles and false cuts.

Effect:

Juan shows a full deck of cards and mixes face-up and face-down cards by shuffling, cutting and turning over packs. Then all the cards are assembled into a pile, the performer riffles the corners and the spectator peeks at a card. Without looking at the...

Stefan Olschewski
The Count's Count by Stefan Olschewski

Do you have the perfect brain? Now you do!

Just take out a deck of cards and a pen. Let them shuffle the cards. Then have them call out random digits and proceed to write them on the backs of the cards until you have marked about 30 or 40 cards (or even the whole deck). Fan the cards in front of you for only 5-10 seconds to remember the sequence. Hand the cards to the spectator who called out the final number. You are ready to go:

At lightning speed, and blindfolded, you run through the numbers on the backs of the cards in the exact order they have been called out! Each time you are right,...

Weight a Second by Stefan Olschewski

A spectator is asked to freely cut a shuffled deck of playing cards and hide the cut-off portion in his pocket, while the magician is standing far from the table with his head turned away.

The spectator puts the remaining cards back into the case and hands it to the magician. Without even looking at it, the magician weighs the card case in his hands. He is immediately able to tell the spectator the exact number of cards that are in the spectator’s pocket.

  • Can even be done blindfolded
  • The case is not gimmicked
  • No force of any kind
  • No stooges
  • No questions

What's in a Name? by Stefan Olschewski

A spectator (freely!) selects a playing card as her lucky card and is also asked for the initials of her first love (no force!). The initials are written on a piece of paper and the lucky card is signed by the lady. The paper is placed onto the card and suddenly bursts into flames. When the lady turns over her lucky card, she finds that the initials of her first love have appeared on the back of her lucky card!

This effect always creates an emotional impact and will be remembered for a long time. The card with the initials may immediately and without any switches be given out as a souvenir...

Pretty Attractive: a sandwich effect by Stefan Olschewski

This is a dual language ebook (English/German)

"Of all the dozens of downloads I've purchased, this is among the two or three that have not disappointed. A bargain at twice the price." - Miky

English

The Effect: A spectator freely selects a playing card and loses it in the deck. You then show two "magnet cards" and place them on top of the deck. Without any moves, a card is suddenly sandwiched between the magnets. It is not the selection, but suddenly changes into the freely selected card. A real magicians' fooler!

  • No add on moves
  • No card controls

The Key to Your Card by Stefan Olschewski

Oh no! Not another ACAAN version! But wait – maybe this one is a version you will use.

Stefan Olschewski took the old premise and turned it into a 5 minute performance piece that plays great in any setting, from close up to stage. And it will fool even magicians.

A chest is seen resting on a table center stage. You hand a key to a lady in the audience. Two spectators select a playing card and a number from 1 to 52 in the fairest manner. They may even change their minds as often as they wish.

Card and number are written on a sketchpad for everyone to see. The lady takes the key and...
