Scott F. Guinn

Scott F. Guinn ("Great Scott!") is a former full-time professional magician (now a full-time pastor and part-time pro) from Star, Idaho (near Boise). Scott has been entertaining and amazing audiences throughout the US and Canada since 1978. In addition, he performed regularly in Boise-area restaurants several nights per week over two decades, and he has had numerous television appearances.

Scott’s corporate clients include food and beverage giants like Nestle, Heinz and Coca-Cola, as well as companies from many other fields, such as Hewlett-Packard, Micron Computers, Dollar and Hertz car rental agencies, Bank of America and many more. For many years, Scott earned his living from performing magic.

In addition, Scott has written many books on magic, and starred in a DVD teaching his material, all of which have received rave reviews from organizations, magazines, and individual magicians, both amateur and professional.

"Your success is well-deserved. I read a lot of stuff that is either poorly structured or just doesn't have anything 'new' about it. Your ideas have structure and I can immediately see that they will work in the real world. Some guys put out stuff that will only work one-to-one or for YouTube. I like the fact that you cover the routine by writing up your patter and all the inside bits, unlike sometimes when I read a routine and I can't make out how it will play because all they do is give a basic explanation of the effect and then a very bland explanation of the method. You know what you're doing and it's a pleasure to read." - Greg Arce

A Little Something by Scott F. GuinnIn this ebook you will find material that entertains and amazes, but more importantly, it is material that 'mere mortals' can actually do. Two dozen incredible routines. Cards, coins, and parlor/platform material is included.

Nothing is duplicated from Scott's other ebooks, lecture notes, or DVD--with one exception, and that has been greatly expanded and updated.

These routines bear the Guinn trademarks of clever thinking and thoughtful construction, from a man who has been called "one of our best close-up and stand-up performers" (Aldo Colombini, in The Linking Ring) and "one of the best writers in...

Great Scott's Ambitious Card Routine by Scott F. GuinnThe Ambitious Card is visual, impossible, and engaging. It breaks the old "never repeat a trick" rule - in fact, it becomes stronger when repeated, especially as the conditions become more stringent along the way.

This ebook teaches Scott's Ambitious Card routine (no surprise there, eh?). He explains not only what he does, but why he does it--why each phase goes where it does, etc.

A lot of you will be adding the finale to your own routines; it's free, quickly constructed, easy to use, and it creates the same illusion as some pretty expensive marketed gaffs. It is also much cleaner and...

Assertive Positive Negative by Scott F. GuinnA new and improved version of this effect is Positive Increases. The original version will remain available at a reduced price.

Impromptu mentalism with nothing but a pen and your business card! Based on an effect by the remarkable Max Maven.

You write something on the back of your business card and set it aside. You give your participant three imaginary coins. She chooses one and then flips it into the air. She tells you whether it landed heads or tails up. You turn over your card, revealing that you wrote which coin she would choose and its orientation.

This ebook has been rewritten in much more depth,...

The Working Pro's Bill in Lemon by Scott F. Guinn"THE PERFECT CLOSER!"

This is quite possibly THE SINGLE STRONGEST ROUTINE in Scott's arsenal. A clean, magical, and effective Bill in Lemon routine that is audience tested and approved.

A spectator's dollar bill (verified as the same bill at every step of this process) is identified, such that everyone in the audience knows it is HIS bill. The bill is then openly (no envelopes) burned by the same spectator. Another spectator has been holding a package since before the show started. He brings it forward. The first spectator opens it and removes its contents: some napkins, a lemon, and a...

Scott F. Guinn

Clairvoyant Joker 2.0.1.0 by Scott F. GuinnScott has been using this diabolically simple routine for over twenty years. How can something so easy play so strongly?

Effect: You deal five cards to the table. A spectator mentally chooses a number from one to five. You turn your back, and he looks at the card that fell at his number, then replaces it. The cards are gathered and shuffled and placed in your shirt pocket. After a few moments of focused concentration, you remove the cards one at a time. Finally, you reveal the card that the spectator merely thought of, proving you also knew his number! But you're not done yet... The rest...

Dark Thoughts by Scott F. GuinnJean Boucher's "The Dark Card" is one of the greatest utility card gimmicks ever--you can do MIRACLES with it! In Dark Thoughts, Scott teaches seven incredible routines using the Dark Card.

Scott F. Guinn

Great Scott's Ring and Rope Routine by Scott F. GuinnAnother routine that has helped to earn Scott's reputation, both in the magic community and with lay-audiences. Combining some well known moves with some that will be new to you, this is a multi-phased routine where a solid metal ring magically penetrates on and off an ordinary rope. The penetrations become progressively more clean and amazing, leading up to a killer finale!

The ring and rope are completely unprepared and may be examined. The ring is never just put on or taken off the rope--it goes on magically, and then it comes off magically. It is also modular, so you can do the whole...

Marked for Death by Scott F. GuinnScott has been holding this close to the vest for more than a decade.

Along with instructions on how to make up your own decks (in just minutes!), Scott gives you memory hooks to make learning the system as quick and painless as possible.

McCall of the Wild: A Wild Card Routine by Scott F. Guinn“Wild Card” is an icon of card magic. Most close up magicians have purchased some version of it somewhere along the way in their journey through magic. And yet, you almost never see it performed. Why? It can’t be because it is “hackneyed”--as just stated, one almost never sees it performed, so how could that be the case?

Flip Hallema said it best:

“Most Wild Card routines are nice to do for magicians, but too drawn out for a genuine party-audience; too much repetition of the same move, slow tempo, and no climax, while the trick cries for [a] crescendo. In my opinion, [it] should build...

Not Your Ordinary Card Tricks by Scott F. GuinnAre you tired of the same old card tricks? You know what I mean...

“OK, I’ll deal down three rows of seven cards each, and you just tell me which row contains your card...”

or...

“Was this your card? No? How about THIS one?”

or maybe...

“Now, the fifth way I’ll find the four aces is...”

or even...

“Look! For the 22nd time, your card has risen to the top of the deck!”

Sometimes it’s good to get off the beaten path. Sometimes, you just want to do something different. Sometimes, you want to take a deck of cards and perform some routines that are not...
