Pasteboard Revelations by Paul A. Lelekis

These professional routines are real workers. You can make a living off these 7 effects. The Poker Deal within this e-book is worth twice the price of this e-book. It is absolutely simple to do.

Included with this e-book are 8 videos, explaining every move of these fantastic routines, making them easy to follow.

Here are the contents:

WOW! - Learn a "trade secret"! Paul has fooled every magician he's shown this to. A shuffled deck is found separated into reds and blacks - the selection is found amongst the half of the opposite color. The final shuffle is performed very openly and the spectator pushes the cards together...yet the reds are still separated from the blacks. Four of the eight videos provide you with a powerful routine and a great lesson in magic. This is a magician-fooler - I guarantee it!

The RIVERBOAT STACK (aka Mark Twain stack; see for example New Card Tricks with the Mark Twain Stack) - No one knows this stack anymore and it goes back to the Riverboat Gamblers of the is the best cyclical stack out there. Paul provides two unbelievable routines that will teach you the power of this stack:

1) In the first effect, you will freak them out with your "powers" of ESP. Everything is performed very openly. Turn your back - and, yet, you can still read her mind.

2) The second effect is even more powerful than the first. I love this multiple-revelation effect. A card is freely selected and lost, yet it appears amongst some cards that she picked out...and absolutely no palming of cards - just pure routining. This will become a favorite to perform...I guarantee it.

NUCLEAR FUSION - Is "Anniversary Waltz" a great trick for couples? This effect is even better...and it is easier to do. Some terrific "old chestnuts" are added into this routine to make it a fun, memorable time for all. I kid you not - this effect will be long remembered and they leave with an "impossible keep-sake".

CARD BOX MAGIC - Dumb name - but who cares? This "quickie" will be long remembered. Place a signed card into the middle of the deck, and place the deck back into its case. Place the deck into your shirt pocket (after showing it empty) and immediately remove the signed card. Everything can be inspected - so easy.

MATHEDOLOGY - This is another great trick for couples or friends or family members. A mathemagical effect that is amazing. Mathematically based...but no one will think it is. Very, very clever.

MARLO POKER DEAL - This poker deal by Marlo can be "played" everywhere. The spectator picks out 5 cards from the force. You then teach her how a card sharp can "take your money" with a poker demo...but it ends with the 5 cards picked out by the spectator, to be a Royal Flush in Spades. This effect is very easy to do and no one will figure it out.

'Six card Workers for immediate maximum entertainment pleasure.' Once again, the generous and prolific full-time professional magician Paul Lelekis presents a collection of charming card compositions from his engaging hoard of close-up magic. I enjoyed these effects and most of them went into my repertoire. These are plots, ploys and purposeful presentations that we can use. What is most valuable is the fact that the author reminds us of clever principles, seldom-used sleights, and a bit of historical referencing. We should remember the originators of sleights and principles in our quaint art, and pay homage by integrating them into our pieces of devilish demonstrations. He explains it with simplicity in a casual, reassuring, voice. Read it, with cards in hands, and anticipate what each piece of pasteboard plot, reveals. The accompanying video instructions will enhance clarity and learning process. To conclude with the title of the first piece: WOW!

PASTEBOARD REVELATIONS is like the big brother of the past several ebooks by Paul Lelekis. Certain books strike me certain ways, and Pasteboard Revelations strikes me as one of my very favorite of Paul's many great ebooks. There is definitely something for everyone. The ebook begins with an effect that, when performed properly, will stand out in the minds of both lay people and magicians alike. Videos are provided to cover a couple of false shuffles and cement the visual aspects. Another two effects use a killer cyclical stack that has fallen from popular grace simply because another cyclical stack 'seems' a tad easier.. although it's not. Mathedology and Nuclear Fusion both use different methods to reveal cards selected by two different spectators. These are ideal for couples. Cardbox Magic uses a simple technique I've used for many years.. and I can attest to its power when performed for lay folks. It's ideal for walk-around and restaurant work, as a table is not needed. Marlo Poker Deal is different. A table IS needed.. but you'll certainly get a ton of bang for your buck.. Paul has simplified this deal from the original to both make it easier and, in my opinion, more visual. I recommend Pasteboard Revelations to anyone who wants several professional effects for near nothing..

Paul is a full-time pro. Besides fun card magic, several false shuffles, false cuts, & a non-memorization card stack are taught. A simplified Anniversary Waltz, a direct Marlo poker demonstration & more. The tutorial videos alone are worth the price.

Pasteboard Revelations by Paul A. Lelekis is another terrific contribution of card effects presented to the magic community. If you’ve read any of Pauls’ effects before you know he has a very easy going straightforward style and places lots of emphasis on the presentation and effect. This new e-book is no exception. Seven solid effects that are well within the grasp of the average card magician. The moves taught here are smooth, natural, and economical. Included are video demos to help you learn some of the Passes, Moves, and Shuffles taught throughout the book. Each effect is supplemented with extra tips that will help you with misdirection and avoiding awkward moments and moves. Some highlights for me were learning the “Riverboat Stack” and the two great tricks that use it and then builds to a very cool climax incorporating a well-known card principle. “Nuclear Fusion” a classic couples trick integrating some excellent DB and DF moves that can be used in other effects. “Card Box Magic” quick and easy designed to take the fear out of performing a card box effect. “Marlo Poker Deal” has an easy set-up, is great for a small group, and has a killer finish. A poker deal you’ll really do! Any one of these effects is worth the price of the e-book. Do yourself a favor and pick it up today and start having some fun learning a great new trick or two! It’s meant to be enjoyed, and I’m sure you will!
