Ken de Courcy
New Zealand Brag by Ken de Courcy

A 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.

Wolfgang Riebe
Joker Surprise by Wolfgang Riebe

If 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! by Paul A. Lelekis

Turnantula by Bob Farmer
"The sleight ... is to my knowledge new and is certainly a lovely maneuver promising wide applicability.

Moonshadow
Couples by Moonshadow

Unfortunately, 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...

Devin Knight
Incredible 3-Way Match by Devin Knight

EFFECT: 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....

Wolfgang Riebe
Green Carpet v1.2 by Wolfgang Riebe

This 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.

Incredibly...

Kevin Parker
Fair Mix by Kevin Parker

Kevin 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.

Raphaël Czaja
Toucan by Raphaël Czaja

As 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...

A Promising Premise by Jon Racherbaumer

Unpacking 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 by Jon Racherbaumer

A 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! 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 tell you...

Jon Racherbaumer
Processean Princess by Jon Racherbaumer

Henry 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....

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.

Dornfield, President of the Chicago Society of Magicians writes in The Sphinx magazine, November 1919 page 209:

"On the same program, Hugh Johnston put over his line of incomprehensible sliders and puzzlers. The way that fellow can make a card or a whole deck do his bidding is nothing short of miraculous. He is at present busily engaged in conducting the only...

Corner Rounder: 1/8" (3 mm), 3/16" (5 mm), 5/16" (8 mm) by Lybrary.com

This 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....
