    So I'm actually writing a new magic book filled with coin tricks along with card tricks all based around slight of hand! I was wondering if their was even a market anymore for something like this or if I'm just wasting time and money since I'll be self-publishing the book. It's not cheap to self...

    Deck Switching

    Hello there, I've had this vague idea for the beginning of a performance*, for which I'd need do a deck switch. Does anybody know a good technique for that? It would have to be a really quick move, done in half a second or less. What I've got in mind is something like the switching of one or two...

    New Card Trick

    I think I just created a new 2 card transposition and I want to submit it, but some of the moves involved are from other magicians, should I reach out to them and ask if I can submit this trick or not. One of the moves came from Luke Dancy and the other move in the routine was by Justin Miller...

    Best Magic Book for a (relative) beginner

    Hi guys, I've been doing card sleight of hands for about 5-6 months. I've learned mostly from Daniel Madison's "How To Cheat At Cards", with the occasional tutorial from Jason England and Xavior Spades. Up to now I've been focusing on card cheating moves, but want to go into the more...

    Card Controls

    I’m tired of always using the same controls and forces, because I feel that eventually lay people will pick up on what I’m doing. Does anyone have any better controls, forces or anything? I mainly use the riddle force, overhand shuffle control and simple moves like that. I’m more than happy to...

    What is that name of that card trick like Klik?

    Hello everyone, Awhile back I seen a Card Trick I might be wrong in how this trick worked but I'll try to describe the effect. The trick started with a spectator selecting a card and it is returned to the deck. Then the Magician fans the cards out towards the spectator and has them hold the...

    What do you guys think of this trick?

    After doing treatment for AML I was left with real bad neuropathy in my feet and hands. Doing Card Magic was out of the question for awhile. This is one of my first performances since having to retrain my hands, I was fresh out of the Hospital and decided to show off one of my favorite Magicians...

    Greetings, I am new to card magic. Ever since I was little I've always loved sleight of hand magicians especially those work with cards. I've read through several forums recently about getting started with card magic and a lot of it has been helpful. I recently picked up the traditional...

    Invisible top shot

    I'm a huge fan of the top shot, and will always do it at least once a day, usually in front of the mirror. Several times, when looking at the mirror, I don't even see the card jumping to my hand. This is really incredible, since it opens many possibilities. It could be the best palm reveal ever...

    Trying to find product/gimmick

    Recently saw Darcy Oake, he was amazing, he did a trick where he put a glass bottle into a box, then locked it into a bigger box. Took the box to a lady, had her pick a card, disappeared the card. She opened the box and it was in there. Wondering where I could find that method or gimmick?

    Faulty Mechanic's Grip

    When I usually handle cards, my index is placed on the right side and not in front. I've fixed this, but it pops up consistently in moves like the pinky count, cardini (not sure if that's the right name) and top shot. Will this restrict me from improving and make my sleights sloppy? Is this...
