The most popular tricks are card tricks. Take a pack of cards and perform a miracle. Some of the masters whoes work you will find here are Dai Vernon, Tony Slydini, Roberto Giobbi and many many more. A pack of cards with its 52 pasteboards allows a shear infinite number of combinations and variations of card tricks. A philosophical question to ask would be if there are a finite number of card tricks possible or an infinite number. Looking at the amount of published card tricks it appears to be for all practical purposes infinite. Nevertheless the classic themes remain extremely popular and effective. It is hard to top a good ambitious card routine, card warp, oil and water, card to wallet (or other impossible locations), or torn and resored card etc. But occasionally we are blessed with the grace of a genius who gives us the gift of a completely new trick, concept or principle.

Noon Stack by Unknown Mentalist

This intro price will go up to $12 from June 19, 2023.

The Noon Stack is the only stack in the world with three official names. It is also called the Midnight Deck or the Moon Stack. You can either start learning this stack exactly at 12 noon or exactly at 12 midnight, any day.

Okay, on a more serious note, Noon Stack is a simple algorithmic stack that forms a nice memorized deck. Given a card, you can know its position and given a position, you can know the card at that position. And literally speaking, if you start learning this stack at 12 noon (or 12 midnight), you can completely...

Take Five by Michael Breggar

From the unsyncopated mind of Hepcat "Dizzy" Michael Breggar comes a new album of killer-diller-thriller card routines: Take Five

It's Dave Brubeck in style, Miles Davis in form, Louis Armstrong in structure, and all Michael Breggar in method and quirkiness. Mike is back with five incredible, sleight-lite masterful effects that will shake your clefs and make your audience's jaws sag while they laugh, applaud wildly, and cut a rug!

These routines are all part of Michael's current repertoire and include some that have been performed at his Magic Castle gigs.

Ian Baxter
No Delay: Think Stop by Ian Baxter

A timely favorite for any magician with a deck of cards in hand is Think-Stop. With a popularity spanning decades, this absolute classic has attracted attention from virtually every known card expert of the 20th and 21st centuries. Practical additions and/or worthwhile improvements to this gem are rare indeed. However, this brand-new handling from Australian card man Ian Baxter easily meets that challenge.

Reviewer David Jones comments:

"The Stop Trick is a stunning card effect which has traditionally depended on the use of a psychological force and hence cannot be relied upon to work...

Fraser Parker
Array: algorithmic stack by Fraser Parker

Array is Fraser's take on the algorithmic stack. He has been working on this problem 'on and off' for the past six or seven years and was only recently able to find the ideal solution he was looking for. His idea was to create a stack that was not only incredibly easy to learn but could also be applied effortlessly, in performance. He imagined a system that could be learned simply by reading through the rules once.

Fraser is pleased to say, all of the pieces of the jigsaw finally fell into place to allow him to create what he considers a close-to-perfect arrangement for this type of method....

George Blake
Devil Divination by George Blake

A pack is thoroughly shuffled (it may even be a borrowed one) and a spectator merely thinks of a card as they are shown to him one by one. Immediately the card is thought of, the pack is cut again and again. The spectator is given the pack, in two halves, to confirm or otherwise, that his card is there. Whether he says it is or isn't in either half, the performer knows the card immediately and may disclose it as he thinks fit.

No questions asked. If you can cut the cards you can do this. Inside two minutes you know the card the spectator is thinking of and you can build up the effect into...

Color I-Do-As-U by George L. Boston

An amazing two-pack coincidence routine.

The performer exhibits two decks of cards, one red, the other blue. He picks up one deck and shows it to be quite ordinary, both back and front. He asks a spectator to assist by placing the deck face-down behind his back and cutting it any number of times, completing the cut each time then to remove two or three cards from the deck and place them in his (spectator's) pocket without looking at them.

He then requests spectator to square the pack and bring it from behind his back held in such a manner so that performer cannot get a glimpse of any card....

Mark Leveridge
Impossible Swap by Mark Leveridge

A small pay envelope with a square hole cut right through its centre is displayed and a selected card slipped inside where it is clearly shown. A second card is then chosen and cut into the deck's centre. Moments later, the deck is ribbon spread face down to reveal the first selection now face up in the deck centre. Immediately the card inside the envelope is removed to reveal it is actually now the second chosen card.

This incorporates a simple yet devious envelope principle that you will be able to use in other effects.

The Clique of Aces by Mark Leveridge

Four Aces are removed from a deck. One at a time a spectator cuts the Aces back into the deck thus apparently losing them. Yet with one cut of the pack, the four Aces are found back together on the top.

No sleights, this is easy to do and makes a great intro to a longer four Ace assembly routine.

Pure Cards Across by Mark Leveridge

Two sets of 10 cards are counted out fairly and openly onto a spectator's hand before being dropped into two glass tumblers where they can be clearly seen. One at a time three cards are invisibly moved from one glass to the other, and when the piles are counted back onto the spectator's hand again, the first glass only contains 7 cards and the other 13.

This is the classic cards across effect using a method that is completely move and sleight free. Everything happens at fingertips and there is no palming required, nor any special counts. Designed for a close-up or intimate parlour show,...

Emunsoc by Biagio Fasano

The price will increase to $25 on April 31, 2023.

This eBook collects a series of no less than seven tricks that are very simple to perform in front of one's audience, but all very impressive. All this is only possible thanks to a particular pre-arrangement of the pack of cards, derived from Si Stebbins but which, unlike it, will not be recognizable even to the majority of magicians, appearing on first examination to be entirely similar to a real shuffled deck. I have called this pre-order: VR Stack Pro and I will describe it extensively on the following pages.

DNR: Do Not Resuscitate by Matthew Benjamin

The "ultimate" fishing stack!

Using an ungimmicked deck of cards you can have a participant select, think, deal down to or look at one or two cards in the deck. You instantly start to describe aspects of the cards until you reveal both.

I truly believe this to be the ultimate fishing deck ever devised using a normal deck. No markings, no rough and smooth, no short cards, no misprints. Use a 100% normal deck.

Comes with two routines to get you started and some tips on how to present fishing questions.

ACAAN meets a Monkey by Abhinav Bothra

A merge of ACCAN and Do As I Do.

ACAAN is one of the most loved card plots and Do As I Do is one of the most ignored. ACAAN meets a Monkey is a unique cross-over between both of them.

Here two cards get chosen, one by the performer and one by the participant. Both cards are then lost and the cards get shuffled. Both cards are later found by the participant at the number that the participant decides on.

Flow of Events:

  • A pack of cards gets cut into 2 packets by the participant.
  • The participant picks one packet and the performer picks the other one.
  • Both of them show one card from...

Victor Farelli
Controlled Coincidence by Victor Farelli

A subtle system for card workers. Four card miracles.

Excerpt from the introduction:

In the Winter of 1928, or early in the following Spring, Messrs. Bagshawe & Co. issued a catalogue entitled "New Magic," in which an item called "Card Control" appeared. Briefly, the effect was that any card (not forced) could be taken from a pack - if desired, in the performer's absence - and the performer was able always to locate in the pack a card of the same VALUE and a card of the same SUIT, as that chosen.

Being struck by the novelty of the effect I wrote to Mr. Bagshawe, requesting him to send...

Impossible by Mark Leveridge

A spectator freely names a card (e.g. 5D) which is cut into the centre of a blue deck. The performer cuts a card of his choice (e.g. AS) into the centre of a red deck. The spectator and performer are now going to attempt to make their chosen cards reverse themselves while the packs are still inside their boxes.

Having mimed the removal and turning over of cards, the performer fans the spectator's blue deck only to discover that there is one card face up, but it's the AS! The magician then fans his red backed deck - and to everyone's surprise, the only face-up card in that pack is the one...

Analects and Analogues by Jon Racherbaumer

Ten card mysteries Annemann would have loved.

This book was part of a two-person three-hour lecture session given by Harry Anderson that Jon gave at a Daytona Magic Conference.

Excerpt from the foreword:

Anneman believed that the effect is the most important thing and, to paraphrase Vince Lombardi, the effect is the only thing.

Anneman believed, as deists believe in a god, that a magician must do something extraordinary with the ordinary…and what is demonstrated must also have no practical use or relevance in the real world. It is a demo, not an application of real power.

Intrigue by Joseph B.

This effect is intriguing. Not only will the magician find two chosen cards under impossible conditions, but there will be a series of incredible and numerous predictions. Look at the full performance. The effect is simple to perform and semi-automatic. We are certainly within the magician-fooler category. Everything is done with a normal deck of cards.

Triplets 4 by Gregg Webb

In this, the second all-cards issue, of Triplets, Gregg Webb describes some old and some new in the news section, including a review of a rather old book Gregg thinks has good patter ideas for poker-themed card tricks, and some others that are quite recent, and a few things that are yet to come out but will soon.

Next Gregg describes a novel vanish of a card for standup manipulators, and then a card trick based on Schrödinger's Cat theory (from quantum mechanics), and a very direct new incarnation of Real Gone Aces, called Real Gone Queens, which includes a way to do it as Real Gone Jokers. ...
