Processean Princess

Jon Racherbaumer

Processean Princess by Jon RacherbaumerHenry Hardin's plot has been around for 107 years and his initial three methods are explained in The Art of Magic (1909). Card tricks of this kind were atypical when Hardin devised his trick. During his time, spectators physically picked cards. They seldom, if ever, mentally selected them. Because only five cards are used in "The Princess Card Trick," Hardin strengthened the challenge by finding the mental selection by tactile means while the five "possibilities" were in his pocket.

This is how the his trick appeared to audiences: Five cards are shown to a spectator who is asked to think of one of them....

Scripted #18: A Study in Scarlet and Sable

Larry Brodahl

Scripted #18: A Study in Scarlet and Sable by Larry Brodahl3 scripts - 3 different effects - 2 impromptu

For all performing venues.

Most mathematical tricks suffer from a multitude of challenges, and the Gilbreath principle is no different.

Issues include:

  • why you can't examine the deck/packet
  • why the cards aren't shuffled
  • what the point of the trick is
  • how to hide when the cards change columns
Well, the author of How To Write A Script shows how he used his methodology to write 3 different scripts that successfully explains and entertains with the Gilbreath principle.

Presidential Optical Opener

David Devlin

Presidential Optical Opener by David DevlinWhen David released The Optical Opener he had no idea that it would be so wildly popular. It is an effect that David has used for quite a long time, but it is not his first application for the Thatcher Illusion. David released the effect as he did because it is a great opening effect for any show. But that is kind of the issue. It is for a show. It is not something that can be apparently done impromptu (unless, of course, you put the images on your electronic device).

This is the original application that David came up with for this great optical illusion: The magician removes a Dollar bill from his wallet....

Modern Card Miracles

Hugh R. Johnston & J. B. Sterling

Modern Card Miracles by Hugh R. Johnston & J. B. SterlingA complete card-act with patter.

This ebook describes moves and routines for a stacked deck. The authors are using the Si Stebbins stack, but most of what is taught applies to other stacks, memorized or algorithmic. At the very end a simply two person code is taught.

Lloyd E Jones writes in his review in Genii:

To me it is the best thing in print on the Si Stebbins deck. Now don't let that statement scare you away. Did you know that several magicians toured the circuits in vaudeville days doing Si Stebbins tricks? I personally knew Hugh Johnston, a minor card expert of his day tossed to the winds by...

Dr. Q's Simplicity Mindreading Act

Thayer Magic

Dr. Q's Simplicity Mindreading Act by Thayer MagicFrom the fertile mind of Dr. Q comes this fair and convincing 10-minute act of apparent mindreading. It looks so authentic that you may be tempted to claim genuine psychic powers.

Everything in this 10-minute act is explained in plain English, so even if you're new to performing pseudo-mindreading, you can present these tests and convince most any audience. Best yet, no hidden gimmicks, one-ahead, or secret assistants are used. No chemicals, secret preparations or "instant stooges," either. But still, believe it or not, your audience does most of the work for you.

If you travel frequently,...
