Aldo Colombini
Three Card Trip by Aldo Colombini

First Effect: Three cards move from one packet to another. This is probably the easiest cards across ever!

Second Effect: You and the spectator find three matching pairs.

Requires three double-backed cards.

Dave Forrest
The Butterfly Effect: an impossible triple prediction by Dave Forrest

SELF WORKING - SELF CONTAINED - INSTANT RESET - WORKS EVERY TIME

(This is Dave's treatment of Cameron Francis' effect 18: A Powerhouse Prediction Effect.)

EFFECT: You display a deck of cards and begin by telling your spectator two pieces of information:

  1. One of the cards in the deck has had its back altered.
  2. The deck is in a completely random order but for three cards which you have specifically positioned for the experiment.
The deck is spread face up and the spectator is asked to verify that the deck appears to be in a completely random order. The spectator confirms that it is. You begin to deal through the deck, face up on...

Gerard Zitta
Simplest ACAAN by Gerard Zitta

Although it does not meet all the criteria of a 'perfect ACAAN', this method still has many advantages:

  • 100% impromptu and examinable
  • deck is normal - it can be borrowed and shuffled by the participant
  • ideal for close up and table hopping
  • Very direct
  • Very practical in live performance
  • Strong impact on the audience
  • Very simple to perform (from beginner to advanced but requires sleight-of-hand)
  • Can be done with different sleights for the card control and for the counting. This allows you to repeat the effect.
Drawbacks:
  • it is actually an 'Any Selected Card At Any Number', or what...

David Britland
Cutting Remarks by David Britland

Cutting Remarks was originally intended to form part of Card Kinetics, a booklet dealing with various methods of making playing cards move with various kinds of elastic loops, including those pioneered by Finn Jon and pirated by everyone else. However, this version of the Self Cutting Deck, for this is what Cutting Remarks is all about, doesn't use elastic of any kind, not even a thread. Peter Duffie used a similar principle in his effect Ascension to achieve a very unusual version of the Rising Card.

David's first introduction to a threadless Self Cutting Deck was provided by Bob Ostin. His version of...

Gerard Zitta
The Other Color Mystery by Gerard Zitta

This is a hands-off and impromptu card effect.

This effect should be presented as a mental experience rather than a card trick. The patter could be around complementarity or duality. You can talk about Yin and Yang, Black and White, Heads and Tails, Male and Female, etc. At the end of your introduction, you explain that in a deck of cards, this is represented by the two colors RED and BLACK.

A Spectator shuffles the cards and cuts it in two piles. He thinks of a color RED or BLACK and counts secretly how many cards of this color are in his pile (for example 7), while your back is turned....

Peter Duffie & Aldo Colombini
That's Amore by Peter Duffie & Aldo Colombini

You give the four Kings to a spectator. You cut the deck saying that you'll now cut to one of the Queens. The spectator's task is to try to pick the King that will be the perfect mate for the Queen you cut to. Remove the top card of the deck and the spectator picks ANY King. The two cards prove to be the King and Queen of Clubs! This is successfully repeated with the remaining Kings and Queens. Then a big surprise occurs: On the back of the four Queens four hearts appear!

Requires four double-backed cards and heart stickers.

Chris Wardle & Paul Hallas
Beyond Svengali: applying the svengali principle to mentalism by Chris Wardle & Paul Hallas

Here, Chris Wardle explores the use of long and short cards (Svengali Deck style) for mental magic presentations. Whilst initially he gives some background to the Svengali deck and how to make and handle one, some routines use variants on the deck and several don't use playing cards at all. There are thirteen routines from Chris plus some additional commentary and a bonus routine from publisher Paul Hallas. Chances are after reading this you'll not think of the Svengali deck in the same way again.

Since the appearance of this booklet (his third) Chris authored Magic For Everyone (2006) and...

In Card Kinetics, David Britland carries on the work detailed in his other manuscript, The Angel Card Rise Plus, and details several versions of this popular effect, each using a simple, disposable gimmick which can be added to your own or a borrowed deck.

Parallax: a topological miracle by David Britland

How many effects do you know that use only one playing card? Well Parallax is just that.

The performer shows a playing card (any size works from jumbo card down to regular size) . A spectator holds the card face up. He grips it firmly and does not let go until the effect is over. Nevertheless the performer turns the card face down, visibly, right in front of the spectator's eyes. Yes, the card turns over whilst the spectator is holding it. It looks quite impossible. Only one card is used and the effect is performed openly and without cover of any kind. It's a topological miracle that you...

Self Explanatory by Cameron Francis

You remove two packets of cards, one visible and one invisible. The visible packet contains four blank cards. "The invisible packet contains the instructions on how to perform the trick." You slip the first invisible card into the face-down packet and run it through, whereupon it turns visible. It reads, MAKE A MAGICAL GESTURE OVER THE PACKET. The spectator does this. Another instruction card appears and says, SNAP YOUR FINGERS OVER THE PACKET. The spectator does this as well. The final instruction card appears and it reads, SAY YOUR FAVORITE MAGIC WORDS. The spectator does this as well. "I...

Restless Colors by Aldo Colombini

An effect by Roy Walton. The most colorful packet trick ever. What a fantastic routine this is. A packet of four blue-backed cards (say all 8 of Clubs) changes to red-backed cards, then to green backs and then to yellow. Then the four cards are one of each color and, for a stunning finish, the four cards change into the four Aces (or blank cards or Jokers)!

Requires regular cards with different colored backs.

The Best of Alchemy Card Magic by Paul Hallas

Alchemy ran for a brief two years and was much loved by its subscribers. Appearing every two months it was also a unique magazine in that it was what is called a "house" magazine put out by not one magic dealer but two, Practical Magic and PH Marketing. There were no columnists, just tricks. There were 92 tricks described in just 12 issues.

Being a past editor of the magazine Paul has picked out what he thought were the best card contributions, nineteen in all. If you missed the magazine, you will find these effects worthy of your attention. For the most part, these are easy effects to do....

Where to start and what's important.

This is a well thought out and compact introduction to card magic by Paul Hallas. He teaches you the most important sleights and tricks that go along with these sleights.

From the introduction:

If you learn a sleight, learn a trick to do with it. Don't learn moves you have no tricks for, what is the point? Better to know a few moves that you can do many effects with than many moves that you are not sure what to use for. Just like magicians have drawers full of tricks they never use why fill up your mind with moves (and waste time learning them)...

Give 'em the Business by Cameron Francis

Get ready for five high octane, visual business card effects! From the introduction:

As magicians, we all love giveaways: signed cards, signed matchbooks, signed coins. Or, if you're Rune Klan, signed bologna. I think most of us would have to agree, though, that the best giveaway of all is a business card. And if you are able to magically alter the card before handing it out, well, all the better. It makes the card that much more special; a conversation piece for the spectator. And there's no better publicity than great word of mouth.

The Man Who Knows Erdnase by Wesley James

Wesley James' 7 DVD set, "The Man Who Knows Erdnase", on the enigmatic book The Expert at the Card Table by Erdnase has been met with controversy. Discussions about Erdnase generally do lead to heated debates, be it the discussions about his identity as well as discussions about the techniques taught in the book and their applicability, history and execution.

Wesley James is undoubtedly an informed card expert with decades of experience who had the guts to put his thinking, believes and information on the table. He made a sincere attempt at trying to make Erdnase more accessible. It is Erdnase through the lens of Wesley James...

Dumbfounded by Devin Knight

An amazing coincidence that goes beyond ACAAN.

Effect: The performer shows a blue deck of cards and shuffles it until he feels psychically inclined to stop. He really does not know the order of the cards. The deck is returned to its case and given to a participant to hold. The performer never touches the blue deck again. A red deck is now shown and shuffled by the performer. He has a second participant freely select a card from the red deck. The participant may change his mind, as there is no force. Next, a number is obtained by chance. No mathematics are involved and there is no force of...

A stunning routine that you'll enjoy performing and your spectators will love to watch. The performer shuffles a blue-backed deck. A spectator selects a card (say the 8D) and signs it on the face. The card is then lost in the deck. Three blank-faced cards with red backs are shown and the performer says that he will print an exact duplicate of the selected card. A back of a red-backed card is erased so that now it is blank and a blue back is then printed on this card. A duplicate of the selected card is then magically printed on the face of this blue-backed card. Wait a moment! To have an EXACT...
