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.

Cardsink

Ken de Courcy

Cardsink by Ken de CourcyA 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

Fantastric

Bob Hummer

Fantastric by Bob HummerFrom 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...

Recycling Stebbins Again

Steve Sanders

Recycling Stebbins Again by Steve SandersMore fun with the original Si Stebbins Stacked deck. Contains an explanation of the original Si Stebbins stack and how to set up any deck of cards in that order.

Four different effects using the stack:

Kind of a Four
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.

Curried Stebbins
A version of Paul Curry's Out of this World where two spectators randomly pick cards and it transpires that one spectator chose all...

Out Numbered

David Devlin

Out Numbered by David DevlinThree boxed decks of cards are displayed to three spectators. It is explained that in the first two decks, two specific cards have been placed in two psychologically strategic spots. In the third deck, is proof that the psychological experiment is successful. This third deck is kept by the performer, but is always in full view.

The two spectators take their decks out of the boxes, and use business cards to randomly arrive at two different playing cards. The two cards from the first spectator’s deck are used to create a card. Let’s say that the two cards are the Two of Diamonds and the...

A Poker Deal and Exposé of Tilt

Paul A. Lelekis

A Poker Deal and Exposé of Tilt by Paul A. LelekisIncluding the real deal on "The Trick That Fooled Houdini", and Jon Racherbaumer contributed a lengthy treatise on TILT.

MALLEABLE POKER DEAL - An amazing 3-part routine with a Poker Deal that will dazzle everyone - including magicians. This routine can be performed by almost anyone.

FIRST, a five-handed game of poker is dealt and the dealer displays that he can deal bottoms, seconds, and center deals at will. He deals himself the four Tens.

SECOND, the dealer asks a spectator, at which hand is the shill supposedly sitting, the 1st, 2nd, 3rd or 4th hand...the 5th is the dealer's hand. When the spectator...

Lucky in Love

Ken de Courcy

Lucky in Love by Ken de CourcyHere is another magical gem from Ken De Courcy. It is packed with mystery, humor and audience participation. This card effect is suitable for close-up, stage, cabaret-floor or where you want to present it. The totally unexpected (yet logical) climax really hits the audience between the eyes and cannot fail to gather applause.

EFFECT: A lady is invited to assist. She chooses one of four envelopes and the remaining three are left in full view. She is then handed a red-backed pack to shuffle while the magician shuffles a blue pack. Then the packs are exchanged and shuffled again if you want. ...

CANOE: Card at Any Name or Expression

Gerard Zitta

CANOE: Card at Any Name or Expression by Gerard ZittaThis effect is a variant of the Card at Any Number plot, but with a full routine and a very commercial and entertaining presentation, with gags, a prediction, or divination, with a puzzling final surprise revelation, and more potential. It can be adapted for any events like Christmas, New Year, Thanksgiving, Halloween, weddings, carnival, birthdays, conventions, etc.

It needs a one-time preparation that you can keep in your wallet or jacket, and can be used as an opener or a closer, for strolling, close up, parlor or stage.

Best Trick Of The Year, So Far

Tom Phoenix

Best Trick Of The Year, So Far by Tom PhoenixWe all see those emails telling us about "the best trick of 2016".... even though we've received 10 of those emails this year. And it's only July.

Anyway, this effect amazes audiences, and fries the brains of spectators who try to figure it out.

You will learn:

  • My "Habanero Change", one of the most open and fair color changes out there
  • How to do this with a borrowed deck
  • How to do this with signed cards
Is it really the best trick so far? Well, probably not, but it's pretty good. And it's nothing compared to what's coming.

Weston's Ways With Cards

Mark Weston

Weston's Ways With Cards by Mark WestonFrom the Foreword:
It has always been my aim to perform close-up magic impromptu, and with unprepared cards. This I do most of the time. Occasionally I find it is better to use the odd special card to enhance a particular routine, and as a commercial performer I have no qualms about this. In my view, the performer's personality should override all else, the props being the tools of his trade. When the blend of personality and props is exactly correct, the performance becomes an entertainment ... this is the aim.

The routines in this book are designed to appeal to those using card magic...

Patrick Page's Cards to Pocket

Lewis Ganson

Patrick Page's Cards to Pocket by Lewis GansonLike ghosts they pass up the sleeve and into the pocket.

From the introduction:

This routine has all the ingredients to delight the discerning performer, the effect is excellent and although it conforms generally to the classical version of "The Cards to Pocket", it has that dash of variation that makes it novel. The method is easy to perform, so easy that one wonders why many more have not thought of obviating the palming just as Patrick Page has done. It's a fine example of using subtle moves in place of sleight of hand; indeed only one simple move is used throughout and yet the effect...

Devin Knight

The Wandering Queens by Devin KnightA card trick that is flashy and plays big, it is suitable for parlor or stage and requires no skill.

Four Queens are each seen in four glass tumblers facing outward. Each Queen is then turned back outward and returned to its glass. Three indifferent cards are placed in each glass with the first three Queens. The fourth Queen is left by herself in the fourth glass.

The performer waves his hands and the magic happens. The cards are removed from the first glass. There are only three cards, the Queen has vanished. This is repeated with the next two glasses. Finally, the card is removed from...

Fake Gambling Act

Ulysses Frederick Grant

Fake Gambling Act by Ulysses Frederick GrantEFFECT: A ten-minute routine or act as a demonstration of how the gambler cheats. Great for close-up work or a club act. In this new act; no sleights are required. Still, you apparently deal bottoms, seconds, four aces, winning hands, etc. For example, anyone shuffles the deck, cuts it and hands it to you; still you can deal yourself 4 aces.

It's a fake, that requires no practice, but they will never know it. Demonstrate your skill without lengthy practice. Appear to be a card expert, instantly. Yes, practically every magician has wished that he could present a good gambling demonstration....

"My seething hatred for Michal's genius can be best explained by the contents within these pages. This trick is just way too clever - you will fool yourself doing it the first time, and actually every time after that as well." - Harapan Ong

Piano Roles

Jon Racherbaumer

Piano Roles by Jon RacherbaumerJon loves to collect, compare, and organize tricks into themes and plots. This is his latest work on the piano trick.

WHAT IS THE PIANO TRICK?

A spectator places his hands palm down on the table in the same way a pianist places his hands on a keyboard. Then pairs of cards are placed between the spectator's fingers to set the stage. These pairs are then fairly removed to form two equal piles. An extra or "odd" card is added to one of the piles. Then, without any further movements or fanfare, the "odd" card inexplicably travels to the other pile.

Jack's Pack

Jack Yates

Jack's Pack by Jack YatesJack Yates was a very clever and innovative magician who has somehow stayed below the radar and is completely unknown - undeservedly so - to many particularly in the US. Jack's Pack is a clever stacking method for finding any card in a deck by way of using numbers, names, words, etc.

Edited and with additional notes by Ken de Courcy.
