Cards

The most popular tricks are card tricks. Take a pack of cards and perform a miracle. Some of the masters whoes work you will find here are Dai Vernon, Tony Slydini, Roberto Giobbi and many many more. A pack of cards with its 52 pasteboards allows a shear infinite number of combinations and variations of card tricks. A philosophical question to ask would be if there are a finite number of card tricks possible or an infinite number. Looking at the amount of published card tricks it appears to be for all practical purposes infinite. Nevertheless the classic themes remain extremely popular and effective. It is hard to top a good ambitious card routine, card warp, oil and water, card to wallet (or other impossible locations), or torn and resored card etc. But occasionally we are blessed with the grace of a genius who gives us the gift of a completely new trick, concept or principle.

Poker Nightmare by Devin Knight

A winning poker hand turns blank on both sides.

Two tricks in one. These are two of the most visual and eye-appealing tricks you can do. Looks like trick photography and takes around 30 seconds to perform. They are almost self-working and require no sleights. You can learn to do these effects in about five minutes. They are that easy to do. Resets in 3 seconds. This is perfect for strolling gigs because of the instant reset.

EFFECT 1: Magician says he would like to share a dream he had. He cleanly shows five playing cards back and front. It is a winning poker hand and the stakes are high....

The Whispering Spirit by Bob Hummer

An entertaining mental feat with a borrowed deck of cards.

From the brilliant mind of Bob Hummer comes a divination mystery that seems impossible, yet you do it every time. The performer takes the spectator on an adventure with a borrowed deck and a dead person's age (which is furnished by anyone in the room). In some uncanny manner, the "Whispering Spirit" aids the performer in solving the mystery. The performer does not need to touch the deck while they are in the spectator's hands.

There are no setups, stacks or cyclical rotations. The cards may be borrowed. The cards are not marked....

Close Quarters by Aldo Colombini

A coin trick done without coins, or a card trick done without regular playing cards. However you want to look at it - a pretty unusual trick.

You show four cards each with a quarter printed on its face. One by one the quarters vanish and reappear on one card which now has four quarters on it. The card is left on a spectator's palm and, while there, it changes into a card with a dollar coin on it.

[Note that you will receive a PDF and a video, but NO cards. The PDF includes a photo of the custom card faces, but you will have to make the cards yourself using stickers, transfers, hand-drawn or printing. You will need two double facers and three blank faced cards to start with.]

Card Party by J. G. Thompson Jr. & Ned RutledgeExcellent work filled with strong card routines. Explanations are detailed and supported by photo illustrations. From the preface by Ned Rutdlege:
Jim and I have complementary minds. An idea from one of us sets up echoes in the brain of the other. Jim has a fantastic grasp of magical literature, and a high intelligence that puts his knowledge to work. The methods he comes up with are often unusual and always interesting. For me, they start wheels turning. I take the method, or nucleus of method, and begin re-shaping it for entertainment value...then I lay it in the laps of a live audience. ...

The Red and Black Computation by Ken de Courcy

You correctly guess how many red and black cards a spectator has casually put into four pockets with an unexpected climax. No skill required.

EFFECT

A spectator is given a pack of cards, or he can use his own. He shuffles it, removes some cards, splits them into blacks and reds and places the blacks in his left trouser-pocket and the reds in his right. He takes some more cards, splits them as before and conceals the black cards in his left jacket pocket and the reds in his right. All this has taken place while the performer's back is turned.

The magician asks the spectator to again...

Stratagem by Abhinav BothraStratagem is a 3 phase modular routine using a regular pack of playing cards. It is easy enough for a month old beginner and at the same time delivers an impact of an expert. Each phase of Stratagem stands on its own and at the same time builds upon the previous one.

Phase I (CAAN on Steroids) :: A crossbreed of 'Do As I Do' and 'Card At Any Number'. CAAN not just once but twice - once in the hands of the performer and the other time in the hands of the participant with zero sleights involved. Each time all the decisions are made by the participant.

The Collected Card Magic of Mark Leveridge Volume 4 by Mark LeveridgeThe final volume of Mark's Collected Card Magic series builds on the previous three volumes and finishes strongly with 10 excellent varied effects for close up, stand up and mentalism.

Impossible - a really baffling routine in which two selected cards lost in the centre of two separate decks, magically swap places while the packs are still in their boxes. No re-set, this can be done in walkabout or in a close up/parlour show.

The Invisible Deck Routine - Mark's classic take on the well known plot, but in which no real deck is ever used. A spectator selects any card from an 'invisible'...

Easy Everywhere and Nowhere by Ken de Courcy"Everywhere and Nowhere" is a classic plot which, due to the difficulties in performance, is rarely seen. The original version calls for exceptional aptitude in card-changes which are not the easiest sleights to do well. Here is a new method utilizing a well-known fake pack that surely you already have, used in an undetectable way. This routine brings "Everywhere and Nowhere" within the range of everybody. Give it that and you'll have a trick that will amaze and entertain both laymen and magicians.

EFFECT:

A card is selected from a pack, then returned and the deck is cut a number of times...

The Immaculate Card Magic of Walt Lees by Lewis GansonFour superb card routines.

From the introduction:

It has been my pleasure to have seen Walt Lees perform his magic on many occasions and each time, the result has been very, very impressive. A quiet unassuming chap sat down, took out a pack of cards and within moments, had his audience spellbound.

...

When we were discussing the composition of this book, I nominated those tricks which I would like to have and Walt readily and generously agreed to their inclusion. That I had selected just a few, is due to the need for conforming to the size and format of the books in this 'Teach-In'...

More Modern Card Tricks by Will GoldstonFrom the introduction:
If the vote of magicians and their men audiences could be taken there is no doubt that card tricks would come out on top as the most popular tricks in the world. Go where you will, you can be certain of finding a pack of cards, and with these in his hands a finished performer can entertain an audience for hours. Therefore, I am inclined to think that "More Modern Card Tricks" will have a warm welcome from my readers.

I have included a number of original tricks in this section and some which, although not entirely new, are not generally known. I would specially point...

Modern Card Tricks Without Apparatus by Will GoldstonHere you will find more than 50 card tricks including easy as well as difficult ones. The book includes a number of tricks from other prominent books. For example, we find tricks borrowed from Erdnase's Expert at the Card Table, and the last section is a partial translation of Kartenkünste by Ottokar Fischer.

From the introduction:

AN interesting little story is told by one of the old French kings. He asked a courtier to join in a game of cards. “Sire,” replied the courtier, “I do not play cards.” The king shrugged his shoulders, and said, “Then you are preparing for yourself a sad old age.”

There is truth in this dictum...

Four great routines, explained in minute detail so that you do not only know what to do, but also how to do it, and biting self-deprecating humor that it is a joy to read.

Four Professional Card Tricks from the Repertoire of Walt Lees by Walt LeesI consider this among the very best card books ever written - and I have read an awful lot of card books. You might ask why a rather thin work from the 1980s would qualify for that high praise? There are three very good reasons for it.

One, Walt Lees has selected four absolute gems of card magic. He could have added fifteen other ok routines to make it look a lot more, but he has refused to pad his work with mediocre material. Good for him. There is already enough mediocre material published. It makes it a lot easier for the reader. You do not have to look for the gems. They are already right...

King Stack by Unknown MentalistThe King Stack is a cyclical stack. Probably the world's easiest cyclical stack to date. As easy as the Si Stebbins stack. But much more random looking for both values and suits. If you can add 1 and 2 then you can instantly learn the King Stack, it is that simple and easy. It should not take more than 3 minutes to actually fully learn it. The real core principle of this stack can be explained in just 2-3 sentences. It is that simple and yet looks fairly random.

The King Stack is so named because the Kings have a special place in this stack and play a key role. A hidden beauty of the ...

Si Stebbins Card Routine by Gene AndersonAn apparent demonstration of total card mastery, this series of card effects entertains and baffles a lay audience. The magician names missing cards by glancing at a riffling pack, listens to the riffling cards to count packets or locate any card, and detects truth from lies by spelling with the cards.

Caantastic by Abhinav BothraFor decades magicians are on a quest to perform Any Card At Any Number from a borrowed and shuffled deck; which isn't always possible so they often settle for Card At Any Number.

The problem is that Card At Any Number when presented as a one-time feat can be mistaken as a co-incidence or the skill of the performer which takes away the feeling of it being pure magic. Caantastic counters just that by creating a mother of all co-incidences moment for the audience. Card At Any Number not just once or twice but thrice and when it happens the third time it dilutes any skepticism and evokes the...
