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.

Joseph B.
JRS Control by Joseph B.

Here is a deceptive and easy-to-do card control. You can really see the selection shuffled back into the deck but somehow the magician is able to locate and control it. No preparation and no setup is needed. Everything is done completely impromptu and with a borrowed shuffled deck. No crimps or gimmicks are used. A real weapon to add to your arsenal of card magic.

I Love Oil and Water by Peter Pellikaan

Another stunning sleight-of-hand version of oil and water without any secret additional cards or gaffed cards. You start with four red cards and four black cards. You fairly mix them and they immediately unmix. Do this multiple times in quick succession.

Graham Hey
Searching for Elvis by Graham Hey

This self-working effect is Graham's feature in the close-up spot of his cruise ship cabaret act. Plays big. Is easy to do. Comes with gags and Graham's full presentation. And it includes the bonus effect: Movie Star Madness.

The Elvis card is lost somewhere in the deck. A deck of blue cards is shown then cut into two piles. The spectator selects a pile, and then deals the cards face up onto the table - they are told to stop when they are happy. All the other cards are turned over and they are blue-backed. But - there was one red-backed card in the deck ... the spectator dealt the cards...

Future Water and Oil by Peter Pellikaan

A beautiful sleight-of-hand version of oil and water without any secret additional cards or gaffed cards. You start with four red-backed red cards and four blue-backed black cards. You fairly mix them and they immediately unmix. You exchange one card from the top of each packet the rest of the cards in each packet mysteriously follows. You show the cards from both sides. At the end with the colors separated they suddenly mix themselves into alternating red and black cards.

Joseph B.
Everybody's Fooled by Joseph B.

The method for this miracle is a miracle. So sneaky and ingenious and in many ways better than other gimmicks that have been used for this type of method. The gimmick is something that opens the door to new ideas because this technique is a very powerful weapon.

The title says it all. This effect will fool anyone. Even the most experienced magicians. A revolutionary and incredibly surprising technique. You will be able to find the card the spectator cuts to in a shuffled and borrowed deck, under incredibly impossible conditions. Really easy to do, no sleight of hand.

Further Than Expected by Ian Baxter

Hard to believe that eighty years have passed since the Stewart James card classic Further Than That was first published in Annemann's magazine, The Jinx. Card workers everywhere latched on to this intriguing, self-working mystery; the passing years have not dimmed its popularity one iota.

Just recently, Jon Racherbaumer released a very worthwhile compilation, Further More. Essential reading and yes, currently available through lybrary.com.

And now on offer, Further Than Expected from Australian card man and author Ian Baxter. This is a brand new, reconstructed approach that freely alters the proceedings while still maintaining the essential,...

Ali Foroutan
Deadlift by Ali Foroutan

Deadlift! No ... not the heavy compound movement that works for multiple muscle groups. Instead, this is a hard-hitting piece of mentalism that looks very clean. It is a hands-off impossible card divination that can be done with any regular deck and no gimmicks.

You riffle shuffle the cards. While your back is turned they cut to a card, they memorize it, and they bury it somewhere in the deck. You turn around, and with 100% accuracy, you can go through the cards and remove their thought-of card.

To perform this effect, you will need a very small setup that takes only a few seconds. ...

Joseph B.
Face to Face Location & Spectator's Revenge by Joseph B.

Two outstanding effects. The first effect is totally impromptu and can be done with a borrowed shuffled deck. It is completely hands-off. This is an impossible location that will fool even fellow magicians. You will get phenomenal reactions from your spectators.

The second effect is called the spectator's revenge because he will find his own card. This is a really fun and surprising routine.

Everything is explained in detail. You may need to buy something extra in order to perform the second effect - Spectator's revenge.

Wesley James
I'll Have a Double by Wesley James

Wesley James has done it again! While no single volume could include every multiple lift technique that has been shared in magic's vast literature, anyone that performs card magic needs the powerful tool multiple lifts can offer. Simply stated, this is the single most extensive work on multiple lifts ever created. No list could be fully comprehensive, but you'll find an abundance of techniques referenced in the exhaustive bibliography. You'll also discover as much multiple lift information as has ever been placed between two covers, and more.

Steve Pellegrino
Cards of Coincidence ... Reimagined by Steve Pellegrino

Lewis Ganson wrote about Cards of Coincidence in Dai Vernon's Further Inner Secrets of Card Magic: "THERE IS NOT a difficult move anywhere in this routine, yet the effect produced is card magic at its very best."

Steve Pellegrino has taken the routine and redeveloped it for contemporary audiences. The effect progresses with two close predictions and ends with a triumphant finale of a perfect match.

Effect: You display a black envelope, which a spectator examines, and two decks of cards, a red and a blue deck. A spectator shuffles the blue deck, which the magician spreads on the table.

One at a time, you make three predictions from a red-backed...

Virtual Color Separation by Biagio Fasano

Virtual Color Separation is an unusual and incredible effect of hands-off card magic, manageable even remotely, through a video chat, such as Zoom, Skype or Google Meet, but especially possible to perform by phone, with a spectator who has a common deck of 52 playing cards, that the magician will never have the opportunity to see but will still be able to control inexplicably, coming at the end to separate the red-suited cards from the black ones, without the spectator any wiser.

A lady chosen as a spectator, after having separated the red-suited cards from the black ones, will choose the...

Quartet by John Scarne

It's a devilishly clever method with four different presentations. You'll likely think of several more. There's a You-Do-As-I-Do effect, a Card Climax, a Phone Miracle, and Scarne's Best Prediction. No sleights. Simple, sure, and direct. Can be worked surrounded by spectators and dead easy to perform. All you require is the instructions, as no gimmicks are used. Use anyone's cards.

If you think that the pandemic is limiting your performance opportunities, you'll especially like Scarne's Phone Miracle. All you need is a spectator with a smartphone or landline. And, unlike virtually every...

Inexplicable Prediction by Joseph B.

If you want a real mind-bender, also for magicians, this is the perfect effect for you. An extraordinary effect. A magician fooler. A climax of increasingly impossible effects. Here's what happens:

The magician shows a deck of cards and asks spectator 1 to cut a third of the deck and look at the card he cut to and then shuffle the packet. The magician looks away. Spectator 2 does the same with the rest of the deck: he cuts another third and looks at the card he is cutting and then shuffles his packet. Still, the magician looks away. Conditions are impossible. The magician is able to find...

Raise or Fold by Steve Pellegrino

With the popularity of poker, this routine is a sure-fire crowd-pleaser. It can play for 10 minutes without lagging. It can be serious or funny - it's up to you.

Effect: You explain that one of the best poker playing skills you can develop is reading the "tells" of other players. It's a skill you've mastered, and you can determine if other players are bluffing or not. To demonstrate this ability, you bring up five spectators. Next, you show five small envelopes; each one contains five cards representing a poker hand. Only one hand is a winner - a royal flush in spades.

Impossible to Find by Volker Dittmar

Imagine: The performer shuffles a deck of cards. He hands them to a spectator, who shuffles them once more. The magician turns away, and the spectator fans half the deck before him and selects any card from the fanned cards. He remembers the card and puts it back into the deck face-up - anywhere. He now makes a total mess of the cards: half of them face-up, the other half face-down. He shuffles the cards again, and again, and again - as often as he likes. Furthermore, he flips the deck so frequently that he has no idea which way his card is facing.

Water and Oil by Regardt Laubscher

Over the years, many versions of the famous card trick "Oil and Water" have been developed, performed, and even filmed. It's a popular effect amongst magicians. Magicians are very sure that oil and water can't mix. But have you ever asked yourself if water and oil can mix?

The spectator mixes black (oil) and red (water) cards by placing one from each on the table in one stack, one after the other, until all cards are exhausted. Then the performer separates the stack into four packets, shuffles each packet, splits each packet into two parts, recombines everything, and - water and oil are...
