The Mystery Card To PocketRichard Paddon
An unseen, but freely selected card is placed into your empty jacket pocket.
"This is a mystery card. It's a mystery card because its identity will remain unknown. We'll return to it later."
A second spectator freely selects and signs another card. This one is lost into the deck. The performer then reads this spectator's mind correctly divining both the card and the writing on the card. The first spectator then reaches into your jacket pocket to remove the mystery card. It is the signed card! The pocket is otherwise empty.
This is Richard's favourite impromptu card routine. He has performed...

The Next Best Trick of the YearTom Phoenix
Do a color change, while the card is on fire!
This is a really nice color change, with the added touch of changing a burning card into a different burning card. Included is a method to make the first card travel from the deck, into the box. The change will take some practice, as it uses some un-orthodox moves, but is well within the skill of the average card handler.
1st edition 2016, length 10 minutes.

The Neyhart HouletteArthur P. Neyhart
This ebook is a reproduction of the original instruction booklet that came with the Neyhart houlette. It describes operation and care as well as several performance ideas and ways to use the houlette. The Neyhart houlette appeared in the 1930s and made a big splash at the 1935 IBM convention. It is an ingenious device that allows you to let any card named rise out of a 52 card deck - no stooges, threads or electronics.
1st edition 1930s; 7 pages....

The Nikola Card SystemLouis Nikola
The Nikola Card System is more advanced than either the Si Stebbins or "Eight Kings" card systems. Even upon close examination pre-arrangement seems impossible with this system.

The Novena EnigmaKen de Courcy
Another great trick by Ken. You can do it anytime, anyplace with any deck. You can perform it even if the deck is incomplete. It is a perfect impromptu trick. It has all the elements of a great trick: an entertaining patter, comedy and a surprising finish.
A pack is shuffled and a card is selected by a spectator, shown to a few other people, then returned. The magician shows the face card of the pack and asks whether it is the chosen card. This is denied. The performer tries to right the things.
He drops the pack face down on the table but the top card is face up. But once...

The NTE PrincipleRonald Levy & Devin Knight
A card feat that can be done over the radio. The magician shows the audience how to program their deck into a smart deck and proceeds to locate everyone's chosen card over the radio. A great publicity stunt that will get you booked on radio shows.
"Very deceptive, very nice!" - Tom CravenThe NTE Principle is a self-working hands-off effect that can be done over a cell phone, in a room full of people or even over the radio for thousands of people at the same time. It's an amazing effect where people select a playing card, lose it into the deck and then the magician is able to locate the card without...

The Off-PrincipleN.I. Pectus
Sometimes we confuse progress and novelty. Not everything new is an improvement.
What the off principle offers is not newness but rather simplicity. The Off-principle is not trying to replace breaks, peeks or controls and yet it is making them less relevant. The off principle is not an advanced move or trick and yet it is able to improve almost every card trick. The off principle is complex in it s applications and yet simplifies almost any card trick you are about to perform.
Yesterday you used controls to keep track of the spectators card, now it is still possible but unnecessary. Yesterday...

The Other Color MysteryGerard 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....

The Pacoima SolutionLarry Jennings
The performer retails and reenacts a dream that at the end becomes reality.
A pack of cards is introduced. Spectator gives it a cut and peaks at a card in the center of the deck. Then the spectator gives the deck a shuffle. Performer turns half of the deck face up and half stays face down. The spectator is asked to remember if her card is in the face-up or face-down portion. The performer spreads the face-up portion. Then the portions are separated and the performer continues with his dream where he took a card crumpled it up and it vanished in mid air to reappear face up in the tabled portion....

The PAT Switch: Before Computers Series 1Bob Farmer
"... The PAT Switch will have you rethinking many of the tricks you know and probably have in your repertoire, as well as suggesting new ideas." - Matt FieldThere was a time when Doug Henning roamed the earth, a time designated B.C. (Before Computers). It was a time when armed only with an Olivetti portable typewriter, a deck of cards and a dream of unseating Max Maven as the inventor of more damn card tricks and sleights than anyone else in history, I devised many, many effects, some really awful with short life spans ("Spanish Inquisition," lie detector with Ascanio spread), some acceptable...

The Perfected Five Card TrickGeorge Blake
This ebook teaches solutions to the following problem Rusduck posed in the late 1950s:
Any deck used. Any five cards taken from it by a spectator, and any one of the five cards is set aside. The performer calls out the other four cards to an assistant in another room or to someone on the phone, and immediately the chosen card is named.
Arguably the best rendition of this type of effect is the Bloom Miracle Poker Machine.
These are very similar requirements to the Fitch Cheney Five-Card Trick. But they are not identical. In the Fitch Cheney trick the performer selects the one card out of the five given to him which his assistant needs to identify...

The Really, Really Perfect Blackjack DealMickey Mace
Mickey Mace has released another one of his favorite effects. In The Really, Really Perfect Blackjack Deal, the performer speaks of the proliferation of casino gaming across the US, and mentions how, with a bit of magical help, anyone in the audience can become an expert blackjack dealer.
A volunteer comes forward and is handed a stack of 7 or 8 casino chips. The performer takes a deck of cards and removes four cards placing them face down in a row. The volunteer is then asked to place four of the eight chips in a row next to the four face-down cards – four bets, for four hands of blackjack....

The Red and Black ComputationKen de Courcy
You correctly guess how many red and black cards a spectator has casually put into four pockets with an unexpected climax. No skill required.
A spectator is given a pack of cards, or he can use his own. He shuffles it, removes some cards, splits them into blacks and reds and places the blacks in his left trouser-pocket and the reds in his right. He takes some more cards, splits them as before and conceals the black cards in his left jacket pocket and the reds in his right. All this has taken place while the performer's back is turned.
The magician asks the spectator to again...

The Red PredictionBob Farmer
In August of 1963, Dai Vernon took a twenty-hour bus trip from Los Angeles to Dallas, Texas, to deliver a lecture at the Statler Hilton Hotel.
On the way there, Vernon created an amazing effect, an effect that is relatively unknown, even today. Shortly thereafter, Vernon advertised the trick for sale.
From the fertile brain of Mr. Dai Vernon comes a MENTAL STUNNER! Here are the facts. Imagine this effect and the IMPACT ON THE AUDIENCE!
The performer displays several cards face up and deals them in a random manner on the table top, some face up, some face down. NOW he gives a spectator an...

The RiSiSi Deck: a synergy of synergiesRick Silberman & Wesley James
The combination of special cards and sleight-of-hand is far more powerful than either alone. When the two are combined with inside knowledge, the resulting magic can be astounding in ways that enable you to leave audiences speechless and dumbfounded. The combination is synergistic: The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.
When the minds of Rick Silberman and Wesley James combine with William Coffrin, Jean Hugard, and Fred Braue, you have a level of knowledge and experience rarely equaled in magic's long history. The whole is far greater than the sum of its parts.
When special cards, sleight-of-hand,...

"Have you ever been in a situation in which you regretted not following your first intuition? Intuition is a very intriguing concept for scientists and psychologists. It provides us with beliefs that we cannot necessarily justify. Today, we're going to re-enact one of those experiments and hopefully this may lead to a successful ending."
You deal the cards face down one by one on the table as you ask the spectator to tell you to stop when she 'feels' it...

You remove two packets of cards – one red back and one blue back - from your wallet. The red backed packet is placed at the center of the mat and the blue backed packet is placed into your left hand. You explain that you are going to play a game similar to poker. You point out the four-card packet on the table saying,
"I have four cards here and among them lie three Aces of different suits. I've added an indifferent card that might come in useful in a few moment. In my hand I have five cards. Four are Aces and the fifth is a duplicate of the missing...

The Royal Road to Card MagicJean Hugard & Fred Braue
The younger generation of card magicians probably knows or has heard of Card College by Roberto Giobbi. The Royal Road to Card Magic is very similar but of older vintage and doesn't cover as much ground. It introduces the novice into the art of card magic one move and principle at a time, always with tricks accompanying the moves. It is therefore not a mindless list of moves but a well prepared and thought out textbook. It will take the beginner to an intermediate level. Once The Royal Road to Card Magic has been mastered one can move on to Expert Card Technique which requires a higher skill level.
Actually because Expert Card Technique did not sell well...

The Score: playing card marking systemDaniel Madison
The Score is an ebook that teaches a special playing card marking system inspired by a concept probably as old as playing cards. The system has been re-thought and re-mastered by Daniel Madison with help from sleight of hand junkie Randall Freeman and a retired card cheat who wishes to remain anonymous.
The Score markings system teaches you how to mark any deck of cards that has a white border, such as standard Bicycle Rider backs, Mandolines and Bee Stingers - we'd list all of those decks here but there are far too many to mention!
The Score is a minimalistic system; two simple tiny marks...
