With Two Decks

Howard P. Albright

With Two Decks by Howard P. AlbrightThis ultra-rare manuscript from magic author-dealer Howard Albright, features a trio of effects that each use two different-colored decks. These are audience-tested effects that will leave the spectators talking, long after the performance.

RED AND BLUE EN RAPPORT - You exhibit a red-backed deck of cards and a blue-backed deck. A spectator is handed one of the decks and shuffles them. You do likewise with your deck. A suit is chosen. Both of you remove the 13 cards of the selected suit from your deck. Each 13-card packet is then placed in its own houlette or wine glass. One at a time, the...

Confusing Crayons: One Person Routine

Brian T. Lees

Confusing Crayons: One Person Routine by Brian T. LeesThe Confusing Crayons is a well known classic. Two crayons and two cylinders are introduced. A volunteer gets one cylinder and selects a crayon. The magician takes the other cylinder and crayon. Instructing the volunteer to follow along the cylinders are turned over, back again and then over. The magicians crayon is right side up and the volunteers pointing down. This is a class that, up to this point, requires the use of a volunteer.

Confusing Crayons, 1 Person Routine is done without the need for a volunteer. Communication takes place with the magician's audience interaction. The audience...

Easy Impromptu ACAAN

Fabio Lombardi

Easy Impromptu ACAAN by Fabio LombardiA new approach to the classic "any card at any number", very easy to do and impromptu.

The deck is shuffled by the spectator, then, the spectator names his favorite card, and he also names a number between 1 and 52. The performer counts down to the number the spectator choose, but ... in that position there isn't the spectator's card. But a good magician never make mistakes, so the performer snaps his fingers to make the magic happen, he hands the deck to the spectator, who counts, and now the freely named card will be in the freely chosen position of the deck.

Pointless!

Ian Baxter

Pointless! by Ian BaxterA revised version of Ken de Courcy's You'll Get The Point!.

Why the extraneous procedure of changing packets? To Ian, this seems totally unnecessary, although (obviously) the mechanics of the trick, as is, necessitate it. This effect is almost exactly the same as the de Courcy contribution, but the method is altogether different.

So the telephone rings and the client says ... "Can you provide two hours entertainment?" ... "Of course!" ... you say, doing a quick bit of mental arithmetic to double your normal fee. Having confirmed the booking, you make a bee-line for the book-shelf to search for this book. Because this book ... plus a few bits and bobs ... will furnish the wherewithal for that extra hour of entertainment.

Think of the advantages! You need only do one show in an afternoon instead of two ... no mad dash when the first show runs late ... less packing ... less wear and tear on...

1415AD

Unknown Mentalist

1415AD by Unknown MentalistThis is an introductory price and will go up to $12 on March 19, 2018.

This year, 2018, marks the 100th anniversary of a fantastic principle which was first proposed in 1917. Although, many performers are unaware of this today, here are a few hard hitting card mentalism routines based on this fantastic principle combined with what I would like to call "Multiple Ins" principle (as opposed to the well known Multiple Outs principle). Well, the intention is to continue the suspense about what this principle is, into the first few pages of this ebook.

There are 3 stunning routines, several...

Optical Opener

David Devlin

Optical Opener by David DevlinA good opener that is intriguing, has a huge visual impact, quick, easy, and can be performed regardless of the size or the style of the show is not always easy to come by. The Optical Opener from David Devlin fits all of those conditions. It is an opener that requires no technical skills, is visually mystifying, entertaining, and will have even you saying, "Whoa! That is so cool!"

This routine employs an optical illusion that creates a photo that visually changes as it is turned over. David has created not one, but nine different illusion photos that you can use to perform this routine....

Basic Training for Breakfast

Basic Training for Breakfast by Ian KendallFrom the introduction:
Magic lectures, and more relevantly their notes, are a strange thing. While some are an endless parade of tricks and their explanations, some are thinly disguised dealer dems and some are virtuoso displays of unattainable sleight of hand, there are occasionally lectures that offer the inside information on performing for real people. Where it's not just the tricks that matter, it's all the little bits and pieces that lie in between the lines that make the difference between 'doing a trick' and 'making magic happen'. Guess which one I'm aiming for here.

The mentalist now collects the envelopes, never allowing them to get out of sight of the writers.

The performer or medium now holds the envelopes to his or her forehead, first calling out the writer's name, then proceeding to answer the spectator's...

How To Not Get Arrested At A Gig

How To Not Get Arrested At A Gig by Devin KnightDid you know you could be doing things at your gigs that could get you arrested or lead to hefty fines? I know in the past I was guilty of doing some of these things which led me to write this e-book. In my opinion this is the definitive work on avoiding getting busted at a gig.

To the best of my knowledge, this is the first e-book written entirely on this subject. It was written to protect entertainers and should be considered a must read for all performers. It's a shame that I have to write this PDF, but unfortunately there are things that entertainers could be doing at their shows that...

Mnemonica for Everybody

Geoff Williams

Mnemonica for Everybody by Geoff WilliamsMnemonica for Everybody is a streamlined, graphical method for easily and quickly learning the Tamariz stack.

It's the same Peg Memory System (PMS) I developed that I used to learn the Aronson Stack in an hour while driving. BTW, this same technique works great for every memorized stack out there including the Aronson Stack, The Six-Hour Memorized Deck by Martin Joyal, the Nikola stack and others.

Even though there are no actual tricks taught in this manuscript, it does contain links to several free memorized deck tricks and other resources (including a free e-book from Simon Aronson).

Klean Force

Unknown Mentalist

Klean Force by Unknown MentalistThis is an introductory price and will go up to $18 on February, 26, 2017.

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,...

You'll Get The Point

Ken de Courcy

You'll Get The Point by Ken de CourcyIf 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,...

Touchy

Gerard Zitta

Touchy by Gerard ZittaThis 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...

Arbitrium

David Jonathan

Arbitrium by David JonathanWhy 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.
