Larry Jennings
The Pacoima Solution by Larry 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....

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....

Allan Ackerman
The Order of Merlin by Allan Ackerman

This is Jack Merlin's Order trick from And a Pack of Cards. The performer and spectator each give the deck a legitimate riffle shuffle. Then all the Spades are removed from the deck, shown in a ribbon spread, counted to be 13, and magically end up in order from ace to king.

runtime: 4min 16s

N.I. Pectus
The Off-Principle by N.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...

Ronald Levy & Devin Knight
The NTE Principle by Ronald 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 Craven
The 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...

Ken de Courcy
The Novena Enigma by Ken 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...

Arthur P. Neyhart
The Neyhart Houlette by Arthur 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.

It is also further described in Samuel Cox Hooker and his Rising Cards and The Big Book of Rising Cards. Other rising card methods can be learned from Knowing the Rising Cards.

Tom Phoenix
The Next Best Trick of the Year by Tom 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.

The More the Merrier by Tom Richardson

The More the Merrier covers four different routines for the advanced card worker.

A modern version of the classic Ambitious Card performed with three cards. The spectators will not believe their eyes as cards appear, disappear and visually change in front of their eyes. The routine also includes a Card to Pocket and a strong finish where the rest of the deck disappears - leaving only the three selected cards behind!

Catch Me If You Can

Stephen Tucker
The Missing Link by Stephen Tucker

Three playing cards (or business cards) are shown and then, with herculean strength, you tear out their centers - in order, you explain, to magically link them together.

Once they have been linked, they are then torn apart (to break the chain), then the "hoops" are restored and handed out for immediate examination.

You can make gimmicks in less than five seconds! Now also supplied with a 100% impromptu handling.

Jerry Andrus
The Miser's Miracle by Jerry Andrus

EFFECT: The performer shuffles a deck of cards and fans them out, explaining that he will use the two cards wherever the spectator says, "Stop." At the spectators indication the performer stops and removes the two cards at that point. Both hands and both cards are shown on both sides and without further manipulation the two cards are placed together face to face, and a silver dollar is seen to slowly emerge from between them.

After rolling up his sleeves and again showing his hands empty, the performer picks up the deck from the table and shuffles it again. The cards are fanned out, and again...

The MIQa Box by Tom Phoenix

Two Deck Switches for the workers.

This is the evolution of the MIQa Box 3.0, including the previous two versions. This box allows you to easily switch one deck for another, under the guise of starting to put the deck away or putting the box off to the side. It's a very natural movement, without the discrepancies of other devices.

There are two versions included. Both of them work very well, so you choose which one you like better.

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.

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...

The Magic of Michael Skinner by Paul A. Lelekis

Nine effects from the repertoire of Michael Skinner. Forward by John Carney is very informative. (John was one of Michael Skinner's dearest friends.) Michael gave John his "Notebook of Magic" before he passed.

The introduction provides a "deep insight" into the career, life, friends, and "thinking" of this very special man. Michael Skinner is considered to be the greatest magician of all time. His sleights, subtleties, nuances, misdirection, patter, trick selection, and pace were impeccable...and the size of his repertoire was profound. Skinner could perform over 600 different effects at his prime - and...
