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.

Toucan

Raphaël Czaja

Toucan by Raphaël CzajaAs he shuffles a deck of playing cards, the magician talks about how cards and numbers have been used for centuries to predict the future and how it translates into his art. He writes down two predictions on the face of a random card and tables it face down. He grabs the deck and deals the cards two by two — top and bottom card together. At the stop of the spectator, he removes and tables the two selections.

Then, he reveals what he wrote on the prediction card: "27" and "35". The spectator combines the value of one selection (eg: 5 of Clubs) with the suit of the other one (eg: Queen of...

Scripted #19: Sidewalk Shuffle

Larry Brodahl

A Promising Premise

Jon Racherbaumer

A Promising Premise by Jon RacherbaumerUnpacking Dai Vernon's Pact

When Vernon's trick appeared, its puzzling aspect centers on the fact that the spectator chooses one of three cards and the one chosen changes into his selection. In other words, the spectator is permitted to make two decisions. He selects any card. Then he selects one-of-three cards, which changes into his selection. It is essentially a quickie.

Daley Bred

Jon Racherbaumer

Daley Bred by Jon RacherbaumerA study of Daley's Aces its history and spin-offs.

This treatise is a compilation of methods for performing a simple transposition of pairs of cards - namely the red and black Aces. The basic plot has a checkered history and, despite being associated with Dr. Jacob Daley, there are lots of tangled connective tissue and ancestral than meets the eye.

Besides these aspects, you will discover that this treatise is a rich mixture of memes. That is, there are lots of bits and pieces to play with and, if you are the kind of student that likes to study the history of a trick and then work through...

Cheat!

Bob Farmer

Cheat! by Bob Farmer
"Verrrry nice!" - Roberto Giobbi

"This is a gem." - Matt Field

"This looks terrific, in no small part because it addresses three items I’ve always been fond of: the Christ Aces, Vernon’s “Aces to Order” and Semel’s Pirandello Cut. ...Your approaches are fascinating ...." - Stephen Minch

No Skill? No problem!

Look like a card cheat without years of practice, self-denial, cheap bourbon and wild women. The most impressive thing you can do with their deck - the one they just handed you - is to discover the four aces in a variety of astounding ways. And it's even more impressive if they...

Processean Princess

Jon Racherbaumer

Processean Princess by Jon RacherbaumerHenry Hardin's plot has been around for 107 years and his initial three methods are explained in The Art of Magic (1909). Card tricks of this kind were atypical when Hardin devised his trick. During his time, spectators physically picked cards. They seldom, if ever, mentally selected them. Because only five cards are used in "The Princess Card Trick," Hardin strengthened the challenge by finding the mental selection by tactile means while the five "possibilities" were in his pocket.

This is how the his trick appeared to audiences: Five cards are shown to a spectator who is asked to think of one of them....

Modern Card Miracles

Hugh R. Johnston & J. B. Sterling

Modern Card Miracles by Hugh R. Johnston & J. B. SterlingA complete card-act with patter.

This ebook describes moves and routines for a stacked deck. The authors are using the Si Stebbins stack, but most of what is taught applies to other stacks, memorized or algorithmic. At the very end a simply two person code is taught.

Lloyd E Jones writes in his review in Genii:

To me it is the best thing in print on the Si Stebbins deck. Now don't let that statement scare you away. Did you know that several magicians toured the circuits in vaudeville days doing Si Stebbins tricks? I personally knew Hugh Johnston, a minor card expert of his day tossed to the winds by...

Corner Rounder: 1/8" (3 mm), 3/16" (5 mm), 5/16" (8 mm)

Lybrary.com

Corner Rounder: 1/8" (3 mm), 3/16" (5 mm), 5/16" (8 mm) by Lybrary.comThis is a multi-use rugged manual corner rounder that produces round corners in three sizes:
  • 3 mm (1/8")
  • 5 mm (3/16")
  • 8 mm (5/16")
3 mm is ideal for perfectly rounding corners for playing cards, as well as other cards like ID cards, badges and business cards. It is also the ideal tool to round corners for cards that have been shortened, as for the preparation of a Svengali deck or a simple short card, or cards that have been cut conically - so called stripper decks. Whenever you need to correct the corner rounding this tool will help you.

The 5 mm rounding is great for corner shorts....

Both of you remove the 13 cards of the selected suit from your deck. Each 13-card packet is then placed in its own houlette or wine glass. One at a time, the...

Pointless!

Ian Baxter

Pointless! by Ian BaxterA revised version of Ken de Courcy's You'll Get The Point!.

Why the extraneous procedure of changing packets? To Ian, this seems totally unnecessary, although (obviously) the mechanics of the trick, as is, necessitate it. This effect is almost exactly the same as the de Courcy contribution, but the method is altogether different.

Unknown Mentalist

1415AD by Unknown MentalistThis is an introductory price and will go up to $12 on March 19, 2018.

This year, 2018, marks the 100th anniversary of a fantastic principle which was first proposed in 1917. Although, many performers are unaware of this today, here are a few hard hitting card mentalism routines based on this fantastic principle combined with what I would like to call "Multiple Ins" principle (as opposed to the well known Multiple Outs principle). Well, the intention is to continue the suspense about what this principle is, into the first few pages of this ebook.

There are 3 stunning routines, several...
