(April 15, 1957 - )

Peter first became fascinated by magic at the age of eight after his uncle showed him some magic tricks using cards, coins, matches and chalk. But it was the cards that held his deepest interest, and so began a learning process that continues to the present day.

Peter’s chief mentor was, and still is, Roy Walton. Others whom he met and had a profound influence on his path include, Gordon Bruce, Andy Galloway, Tommy Frederick, Fred Robinson, Dave Campbell, Eric Mason, Ken Brooke, Peter Kane, Alex Elmsley, Pat Page, Phil Goldstein, Gene Maze, Richard Kaufman and Dai Vernon.

A past winner of the Scottish Conjuror’s Association Close-up competition and the British Ring Zina Bennett Cup, Peter considers competitions "good fun but meaningless."

His early association with Jerry Sadowitz led to a series of books, beginning with Alternative Card Magic (1982). It started with two young men - a manuscript - and no publisher. Peter is grateful that Martin Breese saw in the material what others didn't, and took the chance. All five Duffie/Sadowitz books have recently been reprinted by Martin Breese in a single collection titled Cardzones - a handsome cloth-bound tome. While the material dates back to the 1980's, Peter is proud of this collection.

The 1990's saw a new direction with the release of Imagine, a self-produced manuscript of near-self-working card tricks. This was followed by Obsession, Ulterior Motifs, and so it went on, and indeed, Peter continues to release new booklets to this day.

In the mid-90's, a chance encounter with Richard Kaufman at a Blackpool convention led to a publishing contract being signed. Duffie's Card Compulsions was published in 1995 by Kaufman and Greenberg. This was followed by Five Time Five (Scotland) and Effortless Card Magic.

Peter is currently in partnership with the clever Californian magician Robin Robertson. Together they have created over 200 new effects and recently released Card Conspiracy Vols. 1 and 2. A third book is planned.

Coauthors: Robin Robertson, Jerry Sadowitz, Cameron Francis, Aldo Colombini

JON ARMSTRONG
My Opening Act:

Deciding to show off your ESP skill and having only a deck of cards and a rubber band, you hand your deck out to be shuffled to a nice man named Ted. After he is finished shuffling, you ask Ted to place the rubber band around the cards to make them tamper-proof. You ask Ted if he will stop you on a card as you riffle them past his eyes. To prove to Ted that all is on the up and up, you offer to stare at his girlfriend Mary...

Spirit Level

Peter Duffie

Spirit Level by Peter DuffieYou show five Alphabet cards which obviously spell the word L-E-V-E-L. You also show a white card with a perpendicular arrow drawn on one side, and a digonal arrow on the other. This, you say, is a home made spirit level. The way this card points can alter reality!

The cards are spread face down on the table in a straight line to represent the word "LEVEL" — as the cards are level on the table.

You now turn the spirit level so it shows a diagonal arrow. You now push the cards into a diagonal sloping line, so they are no longer LEVEL.

On turning the cards over, they now spell S-L-O-P-E! ...

ConFind by Peter DuffieYou bring out an envelope and remove three $100 casino chips which you place on the table. Now you show three cards: two are black spot cards, and the middle card is a red Queen. Without any moves, you lay the three cards face down on the table. The spectator is invited to bet $100, however, there is a twist to this betting game. If he finds the lady you promise to pay him $100. However, if he picks a spot card, you will double the stake and promise to pay $200 if he finds the lady on a second attempt. Again, if he picks a spot card you will now give him $300 if he finds the lady. So it is in...

Best of Duffie 2 by Peter DuffieThe Best of Peter Duffie 1 consisted of material extracted from all of Peter's ebooks prior to the year 2005. It was published by Magic.org. Peter has published more books since that date.
"The Best of Peter Duffie is a perfect cross section of card magic’s evolution over the years. Duffie has worked with so many legendary figures that his inspiration is a frenzy of possibilities. Each trick in this book was selected as the very best of Peter Duffie’s extensive online library." - Aron Smith

Plots & Ploys

Plots & Ploys by Peter DuffieA New Collection of Card Magic & Mentalism.

Return to Ipcress:
A handling variation for Jerry Sadowitz’s Ipcress.

Fragmented Thoughts:
You place a sealed envelope on the table or give it to someone for safe-keeping. This envelope contains your prediction. You now bring out four pieces of playing cards: one full-size card, one three-quarter card, one half card and one quarter card. These are placed in a row on the table and mixed. A spectator now picks one of the four pieces. Let’s say he chooses the three-quarter card. The envelope is opened, and the missing quarter is tipped out. Everything can...

Utterly Wild

Peter Duffie

Utterly Wild by Peter DuffieThe ultimate ungaffed wild card - use any deck.

The original version of this routine was called Born to be Wild. Peter has enjoyed performing the original over the years, for lay people AND magicians, but the fact that he couldn't show the last card always bothered him. You were left with a face-to-face double that had to be dropped onto the deck and a triple lift executed to finish. Going back to the deck for a finish is never good! But this has now changed ...

This new version changes that. You are now left with a single court card for a clean and powerful finish. There is also a new...
