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.

Bad Influence: Before Computers Series 2

Bob Farmer

Bad Influence: Before Computers Series 2 by Bob FarmerBefore the proliferation of multi-card, back-changing face transforming packet tricks, Bob Farmer created a template known to only a few, here revealed for the very first time for the many is the secret.

Effect: A small packet of Jokers changes color from red to blue to green to yellow to all different colors. The faces then change to kings. No special cards are required. No thick blocks of cards are used. All changes are instantaneous.

9-2-1 Prediction

Franz Rosensteiner (Ronnay)

9-2-1 Prediction by Franz Rosensteiner (Ronnay)A very easy to do prediction effect with a surprising ending.

The performer introduces ten cards and deals them into a face-down packet to prove it. He hands the packet to a spectator and asks him to think of any number between one and ten. The cards are then cut by the spectator and shuffled. Then they are laid out in a face-down line. The performer asks the spectator to, for the first time, announce the number he thought of, then counts along the line to that number and pushes out the card lying at that position. (Note that this is a real count that can be done from the spectator - absolutely...

Firkin of Deipotent Trouvailles

John Hostler

Firkin of Deipotent Trouvailles by John HostlerA left-leaning collection of magic and paranormal fakery. [Note: John expresses his political views in this ebook. If you get easily offended by such statements then this ebook is probably not for you.]

Seeds for FDT were sown at roughly 1:30am CST on November 9, 2016. Nothing sparks creativity like frustration and angst ... and the floodgates only opened wider as our 45th president's destructive first year dragged on. Twenty-seven worn decks and 400 gallons of coffee later, Firkin of Deipotent Trouvailles was born.

While the hermetic author persists in his role as a "songwriter who can sing and play a little" - an observer more attuned to audience perception than magicians' ergonomic convenience - empathy is clearly in order....

Scarne Thinks Again

Ian Baxter

Scarne Thinks Again by Ian BaxterDr. Jacob Daley was the man behind the pen, writing up John Scarne's Think-A-Card, published as a U.F. Grant Exclusive back in 1938.

Daley was really fired up about this highly effective mental test from the ingenious Scarne: "You are about to become the possessor of a rare and beautiful gem in mental magic" he enthused. "Simple in its modus operandi and yet so tremendously effective...an almost perfect demonstration of mind reading."

Scarne, a universally recognized gambling authority and highly skilled sleight of hand artist, had crafted a gem indeed, with two spectators and the performer involved in a successful...

Calling the Cards

Roberto Giobbi

Calling the Cards by Roberto GiobbiLive from the European Close-up Magic Symposium 2012. This is a wonderful sleight-less classic card routine that Giobbi has polished to a fine sheen with added psychological subtleties and a logical and meaningful presentation.

A brand new deck of cards, still wrapped in cellophane and sealed, is shuffled by different spectators. 10 cards are selected by a spectator. Roberto then divines each card without touching anything. The last card is revealed with a prediction and a duplicate of the last card is also found in the prediction envelope.

Performance duration: 9 minutes

Sly Card

bboymagic

Sly Card by bboymagicPlease note that the instructions are purely visual, no spoken words.

This is a very subtle method to find a freely chosen (not forced) card. It needs some prior preparation, but the deck (cards) are not altered in any way. After the effect there is nothing left to detect and the cards can be handed out or given away.

The method to locate the chosen card is not sleight-of-hand based. But to present it properly you will need some basic card handling skills such as shuffling, cutting, and spreading cards. Depending on how you choose to produce the chosen card you may need to be able to cull...

Zo-Change

bboymagic

Zo-Change by bboymagicPlease note that this video is in Vietnamese, but the instructions to make the gimmick, and how to use it is perfectly understandable from the visual information alone.

Change a bill into a card. Easy gimmick. Easy to perform.

Obviously you need to use paper money that is compatible with the width of the cards you are using. Often bills can be trimmed slightly if they are too wide.

Birthday Card Surprise

Wolfgang Riebe

Birthday Card Surprise by Wolfgang RiebeAnother killer close-up packet card trick from the creative mind of Wolfgang Riebe. 3 blank cards are shown and a spectator is asked to write their name and a picture on one of the cards. Suddenly the freely drawn name/picture duplicates onto all 3 cards. Now the surprise ... suddenly all cards have HAPPY BIRTHDAY written on them!

A completely unexpected surprise and incredibly personal magical birthday greeting. Of course you can have any message written on all 3 cards at the end too - it’s all up to you.

Use any normal blank cards. Ideal for table hopping. Incredibly visual with an...

Wrong Turn

David Jonathan

Wrong Turn by David JonathanWrong Turn is a fun and baffling approach to ACAAN that adds a kicker ending your spectators will never see coming. While most effects in this plot are telegraphed, this surprising twist strengthens the climax of the effect, further engaging your audience, while delivering even greater impact.

A deck of cards is displayed as the performer mentions he made a prediction in the deck. The spectator cuts to a card, remembers it, then returns it anywhere in the deck. The participant then thoroughly shuffles the cards so their selection is genuinely lost in the deck. Any number from 1 to 52 is...

Ultimate Faulty Followers

Ken de Courcy

Ultimate Faulty Followers by Ken de CourcyHere is a wonderful routine that you can perform every time and everywhere. From an idea by George Sands, Ken developed a beautiful three phases routine that can be performed under all circumstances with eight unprepared giant cards. The routine develops the theme “You can’t do what I do”.

Effect: Having enticed a spectator up to help, the magician hands him eight jumbo cards and says, "Please give me any four....and keep four yourself." This done, both performer and spectator carry out some simple movements but, when the cards are counted over, all the magician's cards are face down...

Tattoos on Cards

Tattoos on Cards by NinhShow any design you want on the card by simply lightly burning it with a lighter.

It's Your Deal

Wesley James

It's Your Deal by Wesley JamesThe most comprehensive book on False Deals ever conceived is now available. Written by one of the greatest living False Deal experts and performers; Wesley James is also one of the most detail focused writers in magic's long history.

This is the third book in the Wesley James "Technique Mastery" series, which currently includes A Call to Palms, Neo-Shufflogica and, now, It's Your Deal. Planned future volumes include I'll Pass and Cooler than Ever.

If you think you know all about False Dealing, you're almost certainly mistaken; Bottoms, Seconds and Middles just scratch the surface. No one volume could be fully comprehensive...

The PAT Switch: Before Computers Series 1

Bob Farmer

The PAT Switch: Before Computers Series 1 by Bob Farmer
"... The PAT Switch will have you rethinking many of the tricks you know and probably have in your repertoire, as well as suggesting new ideas." - Matt Field
There was a time when Doug Henning roamed the earth, a time designated B.C. (Before Computers). It was a time when armed only with an Olivetti portable typewriter, a deck of cards and a dream of unseating Max Maven as the inventor of more damn card tricks and sleights than anyone else in history, I devised many, many effects, some really awful with short life spans ("Spanish Inquisition," lie detector with Ascanio spread), some acceptable...

Ninh

Print by NinhPlease not that this video is in Vietnamese with English subtitles.

The audience chooses a card. They keep it secret. The magician takes out a pack of gum packaged in a blister pack. He makes a gesture and magically a card suit appears on the inside of one gum blister. He continues to shake his hands again, and the value of the card appears in a second blister. The magician then removes the gum from its package and the audience can clearly see their picture card located on the gum.

The gimmick is very clever and requires a bit of 'arts and crafts'.

Shuber Vise

Chris Wasshuber

Shuber Vise by Chris WasshuberThe Shuber Vise is a card guard that has a card press integrated. I always wanted to combine these two functions into one small enough accessory to fit into my pocket. The Shuber Vise does exactly that. It is not wider than a deck of cards and is only somewhat longer and thicker, yet it perfectly protects your cards and keeps them under pressure so that they do not warp or bend, which every deck of cards does after some use without being pressed flat. With decks that cost $20 and more these days, it pays to take good care of your cards.

If your deck is already warped and bent, no problem....

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.

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.
