Unknown Mentalist
Klean Force by Unknown Mentalist

Klean Force is a simple self working principle which can be used to build interesting routines with different themes. In this manuscript, two killer routines are explained which you could very well use as 'gig getters'. One routine is based on the theme of 'countries' and another on the theme of 'famous quotes'. A five minute preparation is all you need to start performing these routines.

The participants make absolutely free choices and yet the 'force' hits cleanly and cleverly. There are no sleights, no pre show, no stooges. It is mostly self working and there is nothing to reset. The performer...

Ken de Courcy
You'll Get The Point by Ken de Courcy

If you like a real card baffler, look no further. This is a sort of 'One-Deck Do-As-I-Do' but it works on a very different principle.

Cards are shuffled and cut both by the spectator and the performer (really!). The spectator mentally chooses a card (free choice) and the performer does the same. Then the cards are shuffled again. Unbelievably, the magician and the spectator get cards of the same value and colour. It almost works itself.

Effect: The performer cuts a portion off the pack, hands it to a spectator and asks him to do exactly as he does. First they both shuffle their packets,...

Gerard Zitta
Touchy by Gerard Zitta

This ebook is an exploration of a clever principle rarely used by mentalists or magicians, and probably known by just a few. It can use four to a dozen of flat objects (that can be borrowed): cards, jumbo cards, business cards, index cards, coasters, postcards, banknotes, photographs, billets, lottery tickets, coupons, poker chips, etc.

Effect (Example)

You can have your back turned:

You show a number of postcards, for instance, with different cities or countries. The spectator mixes them and puts the one she prefers, on the table. Then, she is instructed to put the other ones on top...

The Ultimate Psychic Secret by Devin Knight
"I do a lot of Q&A act in my shows and I have different ways to get people info. This for sure is another tool I will have at my disposal when I can. Thanks Devin for releasing this." - Luca Volpe

"This is a shocking book. I will never use it, but every mentalist should own it to know what is going on. It is a valuable reference, but do not use it. Like a modern-day nightmare alley, it exposes the dark underbelly of the art. It should be in your library, but much feels immoral, and you must be hip to it. Treasure it, like a radioactive isotope, but keep your distance." - Marc Salem

David Jonathan
Arbitrium by David Jonathan

Why do ACAAN with one deck when you can up the apparent impossibility with two decks? That's the beauty of Arbitrium.

Imagine removing a prediction card and placing it in your pocket. You then bring out two decks, one with numbered cards and one standard deck. The spectator makes an actual free choice from each deck, selecting one number and one playing card. The performer removes his prediction to show it not only matches the freely selected card, but it also has the chosen number boldly drawn on it. A double prediction and ACAAN combined.

The 50-minute video download covers multiple...

Mr. Smith's Guide to Sleight of Hand by Wilfrid Jonson

This guide is written in an unusual style, a conversational style, where each lesson starts with "Dear Mr. Smith", like a letter to a fictional student. This feature makes it a very readable and valuable course. In the introduction Jonson writes:

The guide is presented to the reader in the form of a course of personal instruction and the majority of the sleights and tricks are described according to the manner in which I have myself performed them. A number of individual touches and personal inventions have been introduced which I consider to be improvements on previously published methods....

Devin Knight
How To Do The Electric Chairs by Devin Knight

This is probably one of the most ancient of all comedy effects, yet strong enough and entertaining enough to be part of the performance of many leading entertainers. The late mentalist Maurice Fogel made a big hit with this in his show.

The basic effect is that five to six spectators are invited to the front and sit in chairs. In a few moments, they jump up and scream, saying that their chair shocked them. The chairs are examined and found to be ordinary; the moment they sit down, they jump up again, saying they were shocked again. This is repeated as often as the performer wishes. The performer...

Tricks with Watches by Samuel Berland

Tricks, sleights, and routines with watches.

Paul Fleming wrote:

No one who has seen Gus Fowler's vaudeville act with timepieces will doubt that magic with watches can be both interesting and mystifying. We cannot guarantee that Tricks with Watches will enable its readers to duplicate the financial and artistic success won by Mr. Fowler, but it will acquaint them with sleights and tricks which they will almost certainly be tempted to introduce into their programs.

Of the four chapters into which Mr. Berland divides his book, Chapter I is devoted to sleights with watches; Chapter 2, to complete tricks...

Cardsink by Ken de Courcy

A chosen card that not only penetrates right through a deck of cards and a card-case, but also right through a spectator's hand. A very strong effect that looks impossible.

The effect is startling because it appears to happen in the spectator's own hands. As always Ken provides precious ideas for an intriguing presentation.

  • Easy to do
  • No palming
  • The card can be signed

Bob Hummer
Fantastric by Bob Hummer

From the title, you'd guess that this is a fantastic trick. It's not. It's a true miracle of psychic entertainment! Here is an incredible mental miracle involving a deck of playing cards, which may be borrowed.

A spectator shuffles the cards as much or as little as she desires. She deals a number of cards onto the table (a free choice). The performer does not need to touch the deck while they are in the spectator's hands. The performer now turns his back, or leaves the room entirely. The spectator removes any number of cards from the pile on the table and places them in the card box, out...

The spectator chooses a card and the performer prognosticates what that card is by looking at 'indicator' cards. Eventually, the 'indicator' cards are shown to be the three 'mates', matching the value of the chosen card, making four of a kind in all.

Easy Wallet Steal by Devin Knight

Do you want to get yourself talked about, fool your audiences, and get a nice round of applause at the finish? If so, try this at your next show.

A man comes up to help you with a trick, as he starts to go back to his seat you hand him his wallet much to the delight of the audience.

Some magicians needlessly worry, that if they do the wallet steal bit, that audiences will not trust them or think they may be a thief. This is nonsense. Most people believe that a magician can easily lift a wallet or remove a watch. This has happened to me many times, and I'm sure it has happened to you too....
