Madison Hagler
Tractor by Madison Hagler

For years magicians have wanted to make a signed card vanish from a deck of cards and appear elsewhere. The best way to do this is by stealing the selected card from the deck. But how? This is a question many magicians have tried to answer. There are various ways, and each have there pros and cons. Tractor is an outstanding solution to this age old dilemma that makes the 'steal' appear impossible. You will be stealing the card from a cased deck!

Tractor is a utility tool which is extremely easy and fast to make. (We are talking 1 minute, tops!) You just need 2 items to make the gimmick and...

Michael Daniels
OCD and Other Effects by Michael Daniels

OCD and Other Effects is a collection of seven card routines for magicians and mentalists that explore some of the possibilities of a mathematical principle designated The StayCard Principle.

[While the principle is not new, others have made use of it before, this is the first systematic treatment and explanation of it.]

The effects included are:

OCD

The magician talks about how he was helped to conquer his OCD (Obsessive Cereal Disorder). He explains his childhood ritual for deciding which breakfast cereal to eat each morning. Cards made from fourteen breakfast cereal packets are mixed in a formalised dealing procedure. Despite the spectator deciding how the dealing should proceed, the cards correctly predict...

Tommaso Guglielmi
The ACAAN Finale by Tommaso Guglielmi

After many versions of ACAAN, Tommy has created a version which he believes is very direct, hands–off and very close to the perfect ACAAN. From the spectator's view point, they will see:

  • A deck of cards closed in its box is in full view on the table.
  • A spectator selects a card using an imaginary deck and a number via an imaginary urn.
  • Mentally the spectator imagines moving the card to the correct position inside the deck.
  • The spectator removes the cards from the box and counts to named number and the named card will be there without the magician ever touching the deck
In all his...

Mark Elsdon
The Inevitable by Mark Elsdon

This is probably Mark Elsdon's strongest piece. He has used it as the closer at every single private and house party he has worked for the last couple of years and it brings the house down (pardon the pun).

The only other performer who has known about it is Paul Vigil and this is what he has to say about it:

"I call this "My friend Mark Elsdon's ACAA...," but he calls it The Inevitable; and it's one of the strongest and most clever uses of The Invisible Deck I've ever witnessed. It went directly into my performance repertoire and can quickly become the perfect closer (or encore piece)...

Alexander de Cova
Boxed Transposition by Alexander de Cova

A signed selected card is placed face down into the middle of the face-up deck, protruding for half its length. The performer looks for the four kings and removes them from the pack. The kings are shown clearly on both sides and then placed into the empty card box (this is done by the spectator himself). Now the chosen signed card vanishes from the pack completely. When the card box is opened, the signed selected card is found face-up in the middle of the four kings!

For the killer finale, a king is cut into four pieces and yet the signed card transposes, ending up with the signed card being...

Ideas with the Invisible Deck by Cristian Vidrascu

He includes 11 very different routines, in addition to many tips and ideas for creating miracles with one of the most brilliant trick decks ever devised.

Dee Christopher
Pasteboard Duet by Dee Christopher

The Gambler's Peek

This is a simple, impromptu utility move that allows you to know the value of a freely selected card while you square up the face down deck. This move is completely invisible, yet very powerful. This move is taught from multiple angles and an easy card control is also taught to get the selection into the correct position.

Chance

Chance is an effect in which you will show your powers of influence over a spectator's decision. This is the perfect opener for a card mentalism set at a table. The premise is very simple, you remove a black card and a red card from the deck...

Catch 33: Three Card Monte by Lee Asher
"Much more than a mere gambling expose, Catch 33 is almost an act in itself! Twenty-first Century magic needs more brains like yours." - Guy G.
3 cards. 2 of them lose. 1 wins.

Each time he plays the game with you, your spectator falls into subtle traps you've set. He receives an authentic lesson on the con game that is not a game at all.

Peter Duffie
Duet by Peter Duffie

POINT BLANK ASSEMBLY gives you the maximum effect for the minimum effort. Four Kings change places one at a time with four blank cards. The transposition is repeated only this time it occurs instantly. Finally the four Kings disappear altogether.

[You will need four blank-faced cards and four kings of which three have blank backs.]

IMPULSE starts as a transposition effect between a selected card and a blank card but ends with a finish that those who have seen it describe as 'NOT POSSIBLE'. Truly original thinking.

[You will need three blank-faced cards. One is gimmicked. The gimmick is easy to make with a pair of scissors, paper and glue.]

Once Removed by Michael Murray & Stephen Shaw

Once Removed is a hands-off approach to the think-a-card plot.

You will be taught a method for revealing a mere thought of card in an extremely fair manner. There are no peeks or forces, and the deck can be given away after the performance if you so wish. Unlike most handling's, the spectator can truly think of any card, and can do this before the deck is even introduced. The clever principle at play allows you to easily discern the thought of card with very minimal memory work (no more difficult than, say, an "invisible deck"), allowing you to focus fully on presentation. The nature of the...

Running Cut Force by Devin Knight

A superior force where a spectator stops the magician anywhere during a running cut. Yet, that card is forced without any sleights or slip cuts.

One of the cleanest card forces ever created. Perfect for the mentalist looking for a natural force that doesn't scream card trick. Imagine showing a regular deck of cards and repeatedly cutting them until someone tells you to stop. You very cleanly deal off the card you were stopped at and believe it or not that card was forced! Once you stop you can ask the person if he wants you to cut again. If the person says, "Yes," you cut the deck again and...
