Commercial Card Tricks Volume 2 by Ulysses Frederick Grant

This is a rare collection of card secrets that U. F. Grant sold separately. These were listed in his catalogs as single items or special props using cards. These were not part of his other card books. The complete directions for the prop tricks are included in this ebook. Many of these items can be made up from cards you may have around your home. If you have seen some of the effects in his early catalogs and wondered how they were done, then this PDF may satisfy your curiosity. A wealth of information that is hard to find elsewhere. This is volume 2 of a two volume set. You get all the following...

Blistr by Chris Wasshuber

Blistr is a new card punch with two important differences to more traditional card punches. First, it is built like a pair of small pliers and therefore very easy to use. The pliers are a flexure design 3D printed from carbon reinforced nylon. (Starting design was created by BYU Compliant Mechanisms Research which I modified to fit my needs.) Second, this punch creates a bigger smoother blister than needle based punches. The tip is not sharp and therefore does not punch trough the playing card. For many this will be easier to feel than a fine needle prick. The blister is a half dome with about 1 mm in diameter....

Challenge Cards Across by Ulysses Frederick Grant

This is by far one of the best methods ever conceived for the classic cards across trick. It is also one of U. F. Grant's best card effects for stage. The method is completely different from Zen's Fifteen Card trick in that no duplicate cards are used.

One regular deck is used and only two unprepared personal size envelopes. There are no stacks of any kind. Finally, there is no palming of cards as in other methods. The method is very easy to do and a feature for stage that is a real fooler. Just one regular deck and two envelopes, along with a pencil to sign the cards will give you a real...

Raphaël Czaja

DIYCAAN by Raphaël Czaja

From the creator of SCAMP, ACOCAVAN and 2D-ACAIN comes a fresh, original and effortless take on the Any Card At Any Number plot. It uses ordinary cards and can be performed hands-off (anyone can deal the cards at the end instead of the magician). Best of all, an impromptu version is also explained.

The magician introduces his performance by claiming: "The secret for this effect to be a success is for you to be both instinctive and lucky. I will guide you but just keep in mind that one card more or one card less will make all the difference."

The spectator cuts off the deck and silently counts his cards to...

Five Easy Pieces by Jon Racherbaumer

The five easy "pieces" in this manuscript are relatively easy to do. The important aspect, however, is how they are combined. The tricks are not the tricky part. They can be broken down into basic, understandable action steps. Or, to put it another way, tricks are to magic books as recipes are to cook books. One should not then equate plans, schemes, or sets of instructions with hale and hearty presentations. This is the reason the extended presentation in this manuscript surpasses mere exposition. Besides explaining the action steps of five otherwise grab-bag tricks, it reveals how they have...

Paul Gordon

Diminishing Not Likely by Paul Gordon

Spectator freely chooses a card. The performer looses the card in the deck and takes the top 4 cards, and then shows each of the four cards as being the chosen card. Weird. For the finale the four cards turn into the four aces. A fast and very visual routine.

Paul Gordon

Copwaked by Paul Gordon

You start out with four red backed Aces of Clubs, shown individually from the back and front. One of the Aces changes to a Queen of Hearts. The Queen of Hearts jumps to various places in the pack. For the climax all four cards change to the Queen of Hearts and also the backs change to blue backs. Does not use any gimmicked or gaffed cards. Can be done with jumbo cards as Paul demonstrates in the video.

Paul Gordon

Corner of Piccadilly by Paul Gordon

A "find the lady" type of routine with four cards with several phases.

"Paul Gordon's Corner of Piccadilly is a very strong monte routine that uses un-gaffed cards. Its kicker is truly astounding, and all can be examined. If ever there was a "worker," this is it." - David Regal

Abhinav Bothra

Simple Sleightless ACAAN 2.0 by Abhinav Bothra

One of the simplest methods to perform the holy grail of card magic - Any Card At Any Number (ACAAN) with a regular pack of playing cards without any sleights.

This is what happens: You introduce 3 cards with 3 simple questions:

  • Q1. Name a number
  • Q2. Name a suit
  • Q3. Name a value
That get answered alternatively by the participant and the performer. You unbox the deck of cards and demonstrate to the participant to deal down the cards to their number, the participant does the same and it is his/her named card at the named number.

Features:

  • no forces
  • no pre-show
  • no dual reality ...

Nick Conticello

The Cerebral Approach: Book One by Nick Conticello

Notes on the 18 Card Trick.

Nick Conticello starts a new series of ebooks on sleightless magic with a new take on the venerable 27 Card Trick. A card merely thought of by a volunteer is revealed at a position the volunteer requests at the start. This method uses just 18 cards and needs no complex formulas or tables, just a few simple rules. Besides the basic effect, Nick adds a presentation that elevates this item from a mere puzzle to a great card effect.

Scripted #11: Rising Card by Larry Brodahl

A script and method for the Rising card trick where the spectator goes through the deck and selects the card to rise. Can be done within inches of the audience with no sleight of hand.

One of the more difficult tasks facing magicians is coming up with scripts - of any sort. A script that highlights the magic while still being relatable to the audience.

The effect is that the magician shuffles and then hands the spectator the deck of cards, while explaining that he's going to do a trick onehanded. The spectator HIMSELF removes one card and puts it face down on the table, and then gives...

The Tournament by David Devlin

This is a card act rather than a single trick. It is a full-deck effect, tells a story, has audience participation as spectators become the characters, is full of magic, and has an ending that no one will see coming that will fry the audience. It is called, The Tournament, and it will convince your audiences that you are the greatest card cheat of all-time. There is no false dealing, which means that the dealing portions of this routine are all self-working. The finale of the act is a mind-blower and brings everything to a logical conclusion.

Two methods are provided, one which utilizes the...

Stebbins Surprise Stack by Unknown Mentalist
  1. Can a Si Stebbins PLUS TWO stack be made useful for stack magic?
  2. Can the values of this stack be made to look random enough for fair scrutiny?
  3. Can this stack be made useful as a memorized deck - knowing the card at a given position and vice versa - without a sweat?
  4. Can this stack have a monodistic sequence instead of the repeating tetradistic sequence like the regular Si Stebbins stack?
  5. After having achieved all the above, will the stack still remain simple and easy to learn?
  6. Can this same framework be applied to the other Stebbins +3 or +4 stacks?
  7. Finally, will it be possible to perform...

Card Punch by Chris Wasshuber

This is a card punch 3D printed from the finest carbon fiber reinforced nylon. A card punch is used to mark cards imperceptible to people who are unfamiliar with it. If you do not know how to use it this item is not for you. There will be no instructions supplied with the item.

The primary innovation in this model, besides that it is 3D printed, is a screw-needle combination which makes adjusting the depth of the punch a breeze. Simply turn the screw a bit more in or out to set the needle tip deeper or higher. If you have moderately strong fingers you will be able to turn the screw by hand....

An Explanation of the Ambitious Card Routine by N.I. Pectus

Sounds trivial right? Why should a magician not know how the ambitious card routine is done?

With this ebook I attempt to give some clothing to the ACR we all know because it seems naked sometimes to me. And still keeping the setup to the maximal minimum - a deck of cards. You will get a tasty reframe that strengthens not only the intra-connection of the elements in the ACR but also the inter-connection the ACR has to the effects performed around it. Another thing you will get is a simple sleight that allows you to show the ambitious card and without doing any sleights after it, it still...
