David Devlin
Wavey Train by David Devlin

ALL ABOARD! B'wave by Max Maven has been one of David's favorite effects since its release in 1991. Since then, countless variations have been published...and here are some more! These routines have been designed to give what is essentially the same effect as B'wave, but eliminate the need for Equivoque or any other force. There are four effects that will knock 'em for a loop, plus two bonus chapters devoted to the "Wave" concept.

First up is Jacks in the Box. On the table sits a single card box. It is explained that the box contains the four jacks, and only the four jacks. However, there...

Guy Hollingworth
Waving the Aces by Guy Hollingworth

After "Reformation", this is Guy Hollingworth's most brilliant creation. The aces visibly turn face up while at the fingertips. If you think Twisting the Aces is a strong effect, then Waving the Aces will blow your mind. And it is not at all difficult to perform for an intermediate level card magician.

Recorded live at the Convention at the Capital 1998.

Stefan Olschewski
Weight a Second by Stefan Olschewski

A spectator is asked to freely cut a shuffled deck of playing cards and hide the cut-off portion in his pocket, while the magician is standing far from the table with his head turned away.

The spectator puts the remaining cards back into the case and hands it to the magician. Without even looking at it, the magician weighs the card case in his hands. He is immediately able to tell the spectator the exact number of cards that are in the spectator’s pocket.

  • Can even be done blindfolded
  • The case is not gimmicked
  • No force of any kind
  • No stooges
  • No questions
  • No fishing

Mark Weston
Weston's Ways With Cards by Mark Weston

From the Foreword:

It has always been my aim to perform close-up magic impromptu, and with unprepared cards. This I do most of the time. Occasionally I find it is better to use the odd special card to enhance a particular routine, and as a commercial performer I have no qualms about this. In my view, the performer's personality should override all else, the props being the tools of his trade. When the blend of personality and props is exactly correct, the performance becomes an entertainment ... this is the aim.

The routines in this book are designed to appeal to those using card magic...

Stefan Olschewski
What's in a Name? by Stefan Olschewski

A spectator (freely!) selects a playing card as her lucky card and is also asked for the initials of her first love (no force!). The initials are written on a piece of paper and the lucky card is signed by the lady. The paper is placed onto the card and suddenly bursts into flames. When the lady turns over her lucky card, she finds that the initials of her first love have appeared on the back of her lucky card!

This effect always creates an emotional impact and will be remembered for a long time. The card with the initials may immediately and without any switches be given out as a souvenir...

Jon Racherbaumer
Whispers by Jon Racherbaumer

This treatise is a detailed exploration of a glorified location-divination, framed by a whimsical conceit - namely that an inanimate object - a playing card - is the supposed agency that makes the entire trick work. In this regard it was an effort to upgrade an essentially puerile divination effect.

Here is the basic approach or plot: The way the performer learns the identity of a freely selected card is apparently due to enlisting the assistance of another playing card (usually a Queen), which whispers the name of the selection to the magician. The magician then acts as the Queen's proxy...

Wild Color Twist by John Gelasi

John Gelasi's Wild Color Twist has never been better! This new video download features an updated handling of John's favorite packet trick, making it cleaner and more mechanically direct than ever.

The effect is this: Four aces are shown. Each ace turns face up in the packet, one by one: first the ace of diamonds, then the clubs, then the spades - to mix things up a bit, the performer surprises everyone by turning all of the aces into aces of spades, except for one: the missing ace of hearts. The magician snaps his fingers, showing that all of the aces have gone back to being different -...

Wind by Mario Tarasini

A corner from a card is seen in a transparent plastic bag. Blow on it ... and the corner will disappear. The disappearance of the corner is very fast and visual. The trick works automatically, all you have to do is to blow on the bag and the corner will disappear. After the trick, the bag can be given to the spectator.

[Note that the video only explains the vanish of the corner from the transparent bag. If you want to show a card tear off a corner put it in the bag and then vanish it, you will have to figure out how to secretly introduce the gimmicked bag with a prepared corner already inside.]

Winning Winnowing by Jon Racherbaumer

Ways To End Up With the Only Thing You Want

From the introduction:

This paper is an introductory effort yearning to be a disquisition. Please forgive its discursive style. So far, this recondite subject has resisted an in-depth, organized treatment. The subject at hand is an exploration of reduction and the process of indirectly seeking information. Or, to use the jargon term, it is about elimination and fishing as applied to card magic—more specifically to the Think of a Card effect.

This ultra-rare manuscript from magic author-dealer Howard Albright, features a trio of effects that each use two different-colored decks. These are audience-tested effects that will leave the spectators talking, long after the performance.

RED AND BLUE EN RAPPORT - You exhibit a red-backed deck of cards and a blue-backed deck. A spectator is handed one of the decks and shuffles them. You do likewise with your deck. A suit is chosen. Both of you remove the 13 cards of the selected suit from your deck. Each 13-card packet is then placed in its own houlette or wine glass. One at a time, the...

Aldo Colombini
Without Safety Net by Aldo Colombini

This is a lovely self-working small packet trick Aldo Colombini created from a trick published by Richard Vollmer.

Effect:

You show the spectator two face-up packs with four cards each, and a prediction - in the form of a face-down card - is placed on the table. The cards are the same in each pile, but their order is different. From a regular deck of cards, the spectator selects three cards. The values of these cards determine how many cards have to be moved from the top to the bottom in either of the piles. The spectator is even allowed to split the work between the piles. Say 5 cards...

Wrapped by Ron Jaxon

Effect

Two cards are selected and lost in the deck. The first card magically travels under a napkin that's been on the table the entire time. This card is wrapped in the napkin and handed to a spectator for safe keeping. They can actually see the face of the card through the napkin so they know what card is in there and that the magician can't touch it. The magician then causes the card in the napkin to turn into the second selection.

Above is just one possible routine that can be done with this gimmick. It can really be used any time you wan to turn one card, or any number of cards, into...
