Ralf (Fairmagic) Rudolph
WindowX by Ralf (Fairmagic) Rudolph

Make a card appear or change behind a window!

With WindowX you can make a card appear or change a card behind a window. You also can change the card in a sealed plastic bag that is attached and in full view behind the window. The spectator can remove the card or the bag himself (in most situations). The gimmick is very easy to make.

You can use many (but not all) windows. The trick is perfect to present in your living room or at a party with a little set up.

Unknown Mentalist
Deckology: Mystic Deck by Unknown Mentalist

This is essentially numerology expressed via a deck of cards. If you have a side for mysticism and or numerology this will be of interest to you.

A deck of 52 playing cards is a mini representation of this Creation itself where Time is ultimate. Hidden deep inside a deck of playing cards are many inner secrets. This ordinary looking deck of playing cards is in fact a representation of forgotten mysteries coded by our ancient mystics. The biggest secret is that each card is 'lucky' for someone at some time.

Two Packs Are Better Than One by Erivan Vazquez

You will get two wonderful effects which are almost self-working because all the things you do seem so natural and imperceptible. The effects will require almost no effort on your part. These are effects that require nothing more than a good presentation and to be able to use your sense of touch. That's it! You don't need more than that because the clever thinking behind the principles that make the effects work every time will do all the work for you and also you can use the patter given for each of the effects.

The following effects are described:

Harry Stanley
Magic With Jumbo Cards by Harry Stanley

These are effects you can do with a jumbo deck of cards preferably on stage or in a parlor setting.

Many standard playing card 'moves' are possible with Jumbos, though, obviously, because of their size, the accent must be on subtlety rather than manipulation.

The performer should make the most of the many opportunities for comedy, inherent in the very use of cards of such an unusual size. The very fact of asking a spectator to 'shuffle' such a pack, is funny in itself ... and, where it suits the performer’s style, no opportunity should be lost, to allow the spectators to 'mix' the cards. ...

Another Spell Of Cards by Al E. Smith

Another Spell Of Cards is the follow-on volume to A Spell Of Cards, and much like that ebook is not exclusively devoted to Spelling effects. However, in keeping with the spelling aspect of the title, there are more than several "Spellers," all presenting sideways glances at the ever-present premise.

As with its proud predecessor, Another Spell Of Cards will appeal to the fearless family of card people who remain calm and maintain their cool in the presence of spelling tricks.

Devin Knight & Sid Lorraine
Thumb Fun by Devin Knight & Sid Lorraine

This was one of Sid Lorraine's most popular tricks. It has been off the market for more than 40 years. Devin Knight obtained permission from the Abbott Magic Company to release this again and to update the original directions. How good is this effect? Well, it was one of the late Doug Henning's favorite tricks and was personally taught to him by Sid. Doug Henning used it everywhere, including in some of his touring stage shows, showing it on a big screen behind him.

A playing card is selected and kept a secret from the performer. The performer shows five small white cards blank on both sides,...

Jon Racherbaumer
Marlo: Low-Down and Cozy by Jon Racherbaumer

This ebook features six presentations by Edward Marlo, one of the most prolific producers of card magic ever known. My criteria for selecting these six presentations was to pick effects that stressed subtlety and psychological cunning and required little or no difficult sleight-of-hand. The irony here is that such tricks are seldom associated with Marlo, even though he devised scores of easy, semi-automatic tricks during his career. But don't despair. The ones in this ebook run a gamut.

Cozy Card to Case is a subtle version of an ancient trick dating back to Walter Gibson's Popular Card Tricks. Most versions are based on miscalling a...

Zens Card Miracle by M. F. Zens

A spectator cuts the pack of cards and counts off 25 cards. Shuffle these cards and have five of them selected by members of the audience. The magician does not view this selection process as his back is turned away during all this. The cards are replaced and the pack shuffled. A spectator is asked to place the cards in five rows of five cards each on an unprepared stand or easel or display board. (When performing this close-up or at a party situation the cards may be placed on the table surface, rather than using an easel.) Note: The cards may be placed in any order, on any row, either face...

Stephen Tucker
This, That and the Other by Stephen Tucker

This is a miracle trick from the fertile, inventive and, dare we say, dangerous mind of Stephen Tucker.

You have three red-backed cards: two cards marked THIS one card with the word THAT. All you have to do is keep your eye on THAT but most of the time you get THAT wrong and it is THIS and when you get THIS and THAT wrong suddenly the back of THIS turns blue!

At the end of the routine you deal the three cards down on to the table and a new card appears bearing the word OTHER. So you have to explain as you deal the cards that to do this trick properly you will need THIS, THAT and a bit...

Criss-Crossings: Unleashing the X-Force by Jon Racherbaumer

This is an interesting study of the X-Force and variations thereof only the way Jon Racherbaumer can do it. The X-Force is the simplest force that every magician has learned to do at one point in their life. Jon dissects the X-Force or Criss-Cross Force and then puts it back together in different and new ways. This is fodder for those that want to go into the fine and nuanced details of performing this force.

The Soldier's Prayer Book by Devin Knight

This is an oldie but goodie, it helps solve a problem with certain church shows. Devin has often got phone calls from church groups asking for a magic show, but to not bring playing cards because the church frowns upon them as being sinful. Here is an effective and proven way to use playing cards in church groups that think cards are based on gambling and are of the devil. Yes, these people still exist today and this treatise gives an effective way to overcome this belief. Devin was raised in a household that forbid playing cards, but he used the technique in this e-book to change his family's...

David Devlin
Plan 9 by David Devlin

David Devlin loves gambling demonstrations. He is particularly partial to the routines that give the spectators the impression that the performer is an expert in card control and cheating. Very seldom does one find a gambling-type of effect that has the following characteristics:

  1. Completely impromptu
  2. It can be done with a borrowed deck
  3. It is performed entirely in the hands, which makes it ideal for strolling performers
  4. There are no false cuts, false shuffles, or false deals
  5. The spectators legitimately shuffle the deck several times throughout the routine
  6. The spectators do all of the...

A Few Good Methods by David Devlin

Transpositions are a staple in magic. The basic effect is simple: two objects switch places. That is it. What David has done in this eBook is that he has come up with five different ways to accomplish the transposition of selected playing cards.

The methods range from super easy to...well...not hard but not as super easy as some of the others. Some of the methods are totally impromptu, while others require a small amount of setup.

Those of you who are familiar with David's work already know that he does not like difficult sleights or overly complicated methods. So, you will not find any...

Anthology of Card Magic by Gordon Miller

Originally sold in three printed volumes, now combined in one gigantic PDF.

Ever since the Abbott Magic Company started business in 1934, hundreds of card tricks have been offered for sale in their catalogs. As each new catalog was published, many of these tricks were omitted to make room for newer ones ... but like good books, great music and fine art, these effects of card magic still remain classics. Gordon Miller, who has been a member of the Abbott staff for over thirty years, delved into the archives and compiled over three hundred of these effects into this huge collection. Almost...

Another Card Book by Al E. Smith

Oh No Not Another Card Book is probably a more apt title for a card book. In fact for any card book published since the printing press was first unleashed. On the other hand, what's wrong with another card book? That's a rhetorical question, since the obvious answer is nothing. Card fans can't get enough of their favourite fix and anything that only marginally irritates those non-persons who pretend they aren't fond of cards has got to be good news.

This collection is partly that; a revisit to some previously published oddments and a few new(?) assaults on familiar card-friendly themes. ...
