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.

Blank Card Surprise

Wolfgang Riebe

Blank Card Surprise by Wolfgang RiebeWacky, incredibly visual and totally impossible. Only a few words can describe this reputation maker. Ever wondered what to do with those double blank cards you've collected over the years? Here's the ultimate trick for you.

A spectator can chose any 4 double blank cards from a deck, or you can hand out 4 cards for inspection. Any one card is signed and placed aside. The remaining 3 cards all change to the spectator's signed card and can be clearly shown one at a time. In the end, they all become blank again and the spectator keeps his original signed card as a souvenir.

A packet card...

Elective One-Eyed Jacks

Ian Baxter

Elective One-Eyed Jacks by Ian BaxterThe One-Eyed Jack Sandwich theme was popularized by Harry Lorayne. However, it was none other than the Australian Charles Wicks who started the ball rolling, with his contribution The Charmed Watch appearing in The Magic Wand journal over eighty years ago. Ian's streamlined version keeps within the guidelines of a totally impromptu approach, observing the need to avoid difficult moves and eliminating superfluous handling.

Auto-Find

Ken de Courcy

Auto-Find by Ken de CourcyBased on a Bob Hummer and Karl Fulves principle. A spectator is handed seven playing-cards. He shuffles them, then places one of them aside face-down without looking at it. Now squares of cardboard are shown with cut-out windows. Spectator follows the magician's instructions and, at the end, looking through the cut-out windows in the cards, an index of a card appears. The chosen card is turned over and has been correctly revealed.

You will have to make up the squares of cardboard for this. The trick itself is self-working, the real work having been put into the evolution of the effect, but they are useful for...

Sub Rosa 14

Werner Miller

Sub Rosa 14 by Werner MillerThe highlight in this collection of sleight-less magic, is the Point Reflections principle, which is a new mathematical principle Werner Miller has introduced to magic. So far nobody has made use of it, except Miller. This ebook will likely change that. This principle opens new doors for new ideas, a fertile ground for trick creators. Miller's point reflection routines come with beautiful print templates. You can go from printing to performing in literally seconds. You will also get some bonus ideas by Chris Wasshuber.

Vernon's 1-2-3 Revisited

Ian Baxter

Vernon's 1-2-3 Revisited by Ian BaxterThis revision of the Vernon classic not only underlines the all-important simplicity angle by using a shortcut display move, but dispenses with Vernon's need for Palming. Bruce Elliott briefly touched on this in the concluding lines of his write-up for The Phoenix. Here, a slightly modified handling for treating either the Ace or 2 is employed, with preliminary and somewhat repetitive displays of the three cards being trimmed. Into the bargain, fakes and duplicates used in some later versions, are conspicuous by their absence. This is a completely impromptu approach that can be performed at...

Optik Deck

Unknown Mentalist

Optik Deck by Unknown MentalistThis is an intro price and will go up to $12 on July 9th, 2018.

Optic Deck is an optical/visual memorized deck. You 'see' a number 1-52 in your mind's eye and you 'optically' or visually know what card is at that number. Similarly you 'see' any card in your mind's eye and you again 'optically' know what position the card is at.

The stack looks very random, the suits look random, there is no red/black alternating pattern and even after reasonable scrutiny it would be almost impossible to spot a sequence, because there is none. Even magicians after being told that there is a stack involved...

Of Paradise

Tom Phoenix

Of Paradise by Tom PhoenixHere is a collection of Open Prediction methods, for the working mentalist or magician. Each method is clean, using no gimmicks.

These methods employ unorthodox techniques, and will take some practice. Since only sleight-of-hand is required, you no longer need to carry extra gimmicks or special decks to perform this type of effect. A spectator makes a free selection, the selection is replaced, and is then shown to match your prediction.

Four methods are included. Each one is 100% clean. You can use a borrowed, shuffled deck. There are no gimmicks, no R/S, no SF, and no sticky stuff. These...

The Cerebral Approach: Book Five: Twin Killing

Nick Conticello

The Cerebral Approach: Book Five: Twin Killing by Nick ConticelloProblem: To divine or locate two cards that are merely thought of by two persons.

This effect has intrigued me for many years. I've published several approaches in the past ("Think Stop" in Automatic Placements, "Talons of the Hawk" and "Talons of the Bat" in Potpourri 2, to cite a few) but these tricks smack openly of mathematics. They lack the directness of selection and revelation I would deem ideal.

Two classic but widely divergent approaches are Ed Marlo's "Double Thought, Single Deck" and Simon Aronson's "Simon-Eyes." Recently, I combined Marlo's basic premise with a concept of Aronson's and a hitherto unpublished key card...

The Empirical ACAAN

Abhinav Bothra

The Empirical ACAAN by Abhinav BothraLove it or hate it but most of the numerous versions of ACAAN out there end up in the same ball park -- look what I can do or I manipulated your choices without your knowledge or simply as a coincidence. The Empirical ACAAN drifts from all of that, here is an ACAAN that makes people connect to each other. An ACAAN that is not about you but about the audience with virtually no sleight involved.

What’s great is that 70% of the times you'll have a hands-off / clean ACAAN and for the rest 30% you have to do something logical which is covered by the presentation to make it look like a hands-off...

E.R. Redux by Lucas CarlsonThe price will go up to $10 on July 31st, 2018.

The best magic happens in the spectator's hands when the magician never touches the cards. Imagine ... The spectator secretly picks any card and shuffles it back into the deck themselves. The magician doesn't even need to be in the room while this happens. The spectator then turns the deck over and the magician gives a custom card reading culminating in the ultimate and surprising reveal of the spectator's card. The magician never needs to touch the cards.

New Zealand Brag

Ken de Courcy

New Zealand Brag by Ken de CourcyA close-up "lay-out" type effect based on a mythical game, "New Zealand Brag".

You deal out the shuffled Aces, Kings and Queens, yet miraculously when the hands are turned over they have separated into suits and, what is more, each hand is in their right order, Queen, King, Ace! Something very different in card magic.

Joker Surprise

Wolfgang Riebe

Joker Surprise by Wolfgang RiebeIf you are searching for a visual 'packet style' card trick with normal (even borrowed) cards, then this is the trick for you. Three red numbered cards are removed from a regular deck of cards and all simultaneously shown to be normal cards. One at a time, each card changes into a Joker. The last change is the most visual of them all. The cards are clearly all shown to be jokers and instantly they change back into the original three normal red numbered cards.

A packet card trick with normal cards. Can be done impromptu with a borrowed deck.

The video instructions include:

That's Impossible!

Paul A. Lelekis

That's Impossible! by Paul A. LelekisThis e-book has four beautiful routines with patter, by some of the masters of magic, brought up to date by Paul, and presented to the magic community. Do not pass this up. These are professional routines that will make you smile. 3 videos included!

THAT'S IMPOSSIBLE! - The "title cut" from a Jack Avis effect. Marlo marveled at the genius of this effect...he loved it. This full routine features an impossible transposition of selections. The cards may be borrowed and signed by the spectators. This is devious. Wait until you see the ingenious method employed.

Couples

Moonshadow

Couples by MoonshadowUnfortunately, some of our magical effects have something of a "who cares?" stigma: pick a card, lose the card, find the card . . . and our audience is thinking, who cares? Couples gives spectators a "stake" on the effect, creating audience involvement and interest.

You're performing walk-around at a party and a couple, sitting at a small table, catches your attention. They ask to see some magic. You introduce yourself and they introduce themselves as Jim and Mary. They laugh and enjoy your magic, and are thrilled when you say, "I'm going to do something really special for you. This is a...

Incredible 3-Way Match

Devin Knight

Incredible 3-Way Match by Devin KnightEFFECT: The performer shows five playing cards that are cut in half width-wise, making a total of ten half cards. He shows that there is a matching card half within the small packet of cards. The performer invites two spectators to help. We’ll refer to as Spectator A and Spectator B. He gives the packet to Spectator A and has him shuffle the cards thoroughly so no one knows the order of the cards.

The performer turns his back and says to Spectator A, “While my back is turned, please deal to the other person; face down, as many or as few cards as you wish. What cards you get is unimportant....

Green Carpet v1.2

Wolfgang Riebe

Green Carpet v1.2 by Wolfgang RiebeThis incredible visual card effect was originated in the 80’s and has been adapted, fine-tuned, up-dated and changed to what could easily be considered to be one of the most visual and surprising card tricks ever.

The magician admits he has a special set of trick cards and shows 8 regular blue backed cards each with a huge black cross drawn on the back. However, nobody one can see the crosses, even as each is clearly shown. In fact the cards magically turn face up too. Eventually all the cards change to different color back cards with a huge black cross drawn across each back.

Fair Mix

Kevin Parker

Fair Mix by Kevin ParkerKevin Parker has created a prediction effect that is too impossible to be true: you predict where their card will land in a shuffled deck (*this many* cards down in the deck), mixed in someone's hat to eliminate false shuffling in the hands.

This uses no gimmicks and no trick decks. Use your hat or their's, no specific type. Very practical.

  • Spectator can assist the shuffle in hat.
  • Use anyone's hat, even your's, no specific type.
  • Easy, a complete beginner could do it.
