Stand-up Cards by Aldo Colombini

Material for parlor and stage, easy to do and very strong. You can create one or two complete acts from this.

  • STAGE PRESENCE (Aldo Colombini): Uses jumbo cards and with these cards you reveal a mentally selected card.
  • JUMBO (Aldo Colombini): You make a kind of airplane with the deck and at the end you reveal a selected card (that falls from the airplane!) and the four Aces.

Routines performed with a regular deck of cards.

CONTENTS AND CONTRIBUTORS:

  • FEELING THE SPOTS (Howard Albright & Ken de Courcy): You reveal a freely selected card from a shuffled deck placed in your pocket.

Double Scam by Michael Daniels
"A lovely card effect. Highly recommended!" - Andrew Loh

"Double Scam by Mike Daniels is one of the best purchases I have made in the past year. Extremely clever and the ingenious methodology makes it simple to perform and will probably fool most magicians. But will absolutely destroy laymen. Worth every penny and then some. Diabolic!" - Doug Canning

Double Scam is a two-phase ACAAN effect (Any Card At Any Number). A full deck of cards is freely shuffled by the spectator. Both spectator and mentalist choose a two-digit number. Each then secretly selects and remembers a card. The two cards are lost in the...

Compleat K.M. Move by Jon Racherbaumer

This is the fourth revised treatment that Marlo and Jon worked on during the last year of his life. Their objective back then was to publish a new old-book by expanding the original work to include ideas, finesses, and variations devised after 1962. More important, the revision was to be more organized and cohesive than the original.

The original K.M. MOVE booklet was typed on twenty-three pages. There were only eleven hand-traced, inked drawings [by Marlo]. The material faithfully duplicates Marlo's hand-written notes and was typed by Muriel Marlo. All in all, the finished product had an unpretentious,...

Jon Racherbaumer
Gene Castillon's Redoubling the Double Cut by Jon Racherbaumer

Gene Castillon presented this lecture at a meeting of Ring #27 IBM in the early 70’s, calling it "The Double Undercut Routine". This routine was designed to feature only one sleight or move—the Double Undercut. To prove the versatility and usefulness of this one move, Gene incorporated into one routine a series of different effects all accomplished by this one move. As you will discover, there are magic appearances, a simple sandwich prediction, several Ace tricks, a poker deal, and a simple triumph trick.

When recently asked to lecture again, Gene pulled out his old lecture notes and was surprised...

Nailed by Aldo Colombini

So you want more card tricks with a regular deck of cards? Here we go!

  • ISOLATION (Aldo Colombini): The deck is cut into two. A card is selected from one half. A spectator finds it by picking two cards from the other half.
  • 52-CARD MONTE (Karl Fulves): An entertaining, unique three-card Monte routine using the entire deck where at the end the deck changes color. Self working.
  • UNBEATABLE (Aldo Colombini): You leave one card aside. Two indifferent cards placed face down in the deck, capture a Jack. Your card is turned and it is seen to be the other Jack. Then the two cards change into the other Jacks. ...

Impromptu Gambling Routines by Aldo Colombini

This is a unique download DVD assembling an incredible collection of routines on gambling and poker demonstrations, using just a regular deck of cards and virtually no set-up.

  • AMNESIA ACES (Karl Fulves): An amusing routine involving an absent-minded gambler where, at the end, he deals himself the four Aces apparently forgotten… somewhere else.
  • CHEATING JACKS (Aldo Colombini): The four Jacks are dealt between you and a spectator and you always get the four Jacks and at the end you get the four Aces.

Big Easy Card Cunning by Jon Racherbaumer

These are all self-working or very easy to perform effects.

One item that I would like to highlight is the Klutz Force, because it is on the same skill level as the popular Criss-Cross force, which is frequently used in self-working effects. With the Klutz Force you have an alternative that has a different feel and procedure.

Arch Triumphs by Jon Racherbaumer

Every card magician will know the Triumph effect:

The performer is recklessly and haphazardly mixing cards face up and face down. Then, without warning or manipulation, this entire disorder is instantly corrected. All of the cards face the same way except for a selection.

The most famous routine is Dai Vernon's "Triumph" originally published in Stars of Magic. However, he probably was influenced by other similar effects that came before. One such routine is Sid Lorraine's "Slop Shuffle".

Jon Racherbaumer will take you through the history of this wonderfully visual effect and will explain and discuss the many...

Dr. Bill Cushman
Mirabill by Dr. Bill Cushman

Now, one of the mentalism's greatest "self-working" effects has been simplified to the point where it really is self-working! One early reviewer referred to Mirabill as "Miraskill minus the skill."

"He told me to bring a deck of cards and we'd play a friendly game. Never trust a man who calls a game friendly."

"I still can't fathom how it happened. They were my cards. I shuffled. I dealt. Yet somehow he still knew ahead of time exactly how things would turn out."

"If it had happened once I might have convinced myself he just got lucky. But the second time destroyed any such thoughts....

Easy Card Effects by Aldo Colombini

Ten more amazing routines with a regular deck of cards.

  • VALUE/SUIT PREDICTION (Nick Trost): A spectator shuffles the deck, yet you reveal a selected card.
  • FATE IN NUMBERS (Karl Fulves): A die and a deck of cards. A spectator picks two sides of the die and you deal two packets. The top cards reveal the numbers of the die.
  • VANTAGE POINT (Rachel Colombini): A FREELY selected card is revealed with a comedy spelling (or, in a second routine, with an elimination process). Clever method.

  • MOUSE TRAP (Aldo Colombini): A funny trick involving the capture of a ‘mouse’ (Ace of Spades) who leaves a card (cheese) full of holes.

  • THE SHOOTIST (Radagast): A versatile manipulation where a card is shot from the deck and caught in mid air with the hand.

Definitive Slip Cut by Jon Racherbaumer

Slip Cuts play a vital role in "Cutting to the Aces," a presentation auspiciously introduced in Stars of Magic (1946). Dai Vernon's handling sparked lots of interest when it first appeared, providing strong incentive to master the Slip Cut. Cardini, who also knew a great trick when he saw one, strongly endorsed Vernon's presentation:

"To lovers of outstanding card magic I heartily recommend 'Cutting the Aces.' It is showy and mystifying, more so than you would think a card trick could possibly be."
Therefore, this treatise begins with explanations of three versions of Ace-Cutting. This may induce...

Clockwork by Jon Racherbaumer

On the Clock Effect

The clock effect/principle is a variant of the automatic placement principle. It allows you to force a card. The procedure typically is that the spectator freely selects any full hour on the clock (1-12). Cards are then dealt into a clock pattern where one card takes the place of each hour. The card at the spectator's freely chosen hour is the force card, which for example could have been predicted beforehand.

The Clock Effect using playing cards originated at the turn of the century. Potter's Index subsequently listed thirty-eight (38) references—one of the earliest...

Good Turns by Jon Racherbaumer

Even though the small packet card trick goes at least back to Hofzinser's times Jon argues that the modern small packet trick started in the 1940s when the Buckle Count was introduced by Dai Vernon and got into full swing when the Ghost Count (Elmsley Count) entered the stage.

Jon writes:

When the Elmsley Count became more widely known, the genie was out of the bottle. Vernon’s “Twisting The Aces” provided momentum. Marlo’s groundbreaking work on “Think Ace” and “Touch Turn” was privately circulating and then was eventually published in The Linking Ring. By the time Larry West and Verne Chesbro published Tricks You Can...

Razzamataz by Aldo Colombini

A great piece of entertainment. Almost an act in itself. Ten cards are freely selected. You reveal them one at a time with different methods and sleights (uses any deck of cards). The routine is performed entirely in your hands. No table required. With a Multiple Card Control that will blow your head off.

Bonus effect included: BAND-IT (a rubber band wrapped around the deck disappears and then reappears in the middle of the deck encircling the selected card.)

Hands Hof! by Kyle MacNeill

From creative magician Kyle MacNeill comes a completely hands off Hofzinser Ace trick, and much, much more!

From the Introduction:

One thing that I am usually missing in my effects is commerciality, and hence I wanted to try to create a routine that was simple, easy, straight – to the point, and generated pleasing reactions.

One plot that I have always loved is the 'Hofzinser Ace Problem'. I have played with it countless times, using a play on words in ‘Hoffee Chew’ (American Dream, 2010), and in ‘Hoffee Beans’ (Zany, 2010). However, I recently have wished to create a Hofzinser...

Stewart James
Jamesosophy by Stewart James

Personally I find any trick using a swastica not a particularly good idea today, because the swastica is loaded with meaning not necessarily appropriate for entertainment. But we should not forget that this manuscript was originally written in the 1940s.

The gem in my opinion is the last effect, "The All Clear Card Transformation."

Here are the effect descriptions as they were originally written by Stewart James.

SWASTRICKA

The performer writes a prediction and anyone retains it for the time being. He now displays a card, the same size as a playing card, bearing a Swastica. The assertion...

Hofzinser's Lost Ace-Problem by Jon Racherbaumer

Karl Fulves published in Pallbearers Review an unsolved card problem wherein an Ace having the same suit of a previously selected card changes into that selection. The puzzling aspect of this problem was this: The four Aces are shown, mixed, and tabled face down. Nobody knows the order or disposition of the Aces, not even the spectator.

Jon describes eight solutions each with its own trade-offs, strengths and weaknesses.

Jon concludes his manuscript with:

The Hofzinser Lost Ace Problem is a good example of a card problem that intrigues magicians because it lends itself to "creative noodling" and...

Ladies on the Loose by Jon Racherbaumer

This routine was inspired by a magician’s challenge that it was unfeasible and unadvisable to perform several Ace Assemblies in a row for lay audiences. In fact, he argued that most Four-Ace Assemblies are neither entertaining nor interesting to layman because they are essentially magician’s exercises. This synergism is an exercise based on an opposite view; however, a key lies in presentation. The performer ostensibly is relating a bit of history regarding how a card trick was performed in the 16th century. In the course of the explanation, he acts as a proxy for skeptical spectators who...

Marlo's Chameleon Aces by Jon Racherbaumer

The basic plot of the "Chamele Aces" was developed in the late 40s by Edward Marlo, who shared ideas about this motif with Neal Elias in 1949. Elias wrote notes regarding the methods they explored, which he and Marlo then filed away. Neither published the "work;" however, Marlo performed an impromptu version at a Pittsburgh magic convention in 1955. Earlier the same year, Roy Walton published his version of "Chamele Aces" in The Gen (February-1955: Volume 10 - Number 10).

The basic Chamele Aces plot is four red-back and four blue-back Aces transpose one at a time.
