    2024 magic

    Hello everyone happy new year! I have been working on a show that I put together (about 40 minutes card show done with 1 or 2 decks of cards). I put the whole thing together and was thinking about where I should try to market this to in the future. Obviously I don’t intend to perform this show...

    What impromptu tricks can I lead into if I have a deck with one face up Card

    I was making a small routine of impromptu no gimmicks card tricks, where a trick leads into another trick. I am in a situation where I am ending up with one faceup card somewhere in the deck. I don't want to break my flow by the cleanup but rather go with a trick that has some sort of a required...

    Have you ever seen anything like this?

    Got this at a yard sale this morning. Trying to figure out what it would be worth. Figured this is the best place for knowledge on this. Got it for $1. Has two full Aristocrat decks in it.

    Here’s my take on a multiple selection to pockets routine. Some of the thinking in this routine is inspired by Chris Mayhew (hence the title). Please let me know if you enjoyed it! Scott.

    [Ideas?] Transport and store safely playing cards.

    Hi everyone! This is my first thread on the forum so do not hesitate to tell me if I am in the wrong section. I have been loving magic since I was a child but never had any opportunity to really get into it until a few years ago. I now start owning quite a few decks of cards and I struggle to...

    I'm trying to find a method that allows me to duplicate signed cards. Help?

    I'm trying to find a way to duplicate signed cards, either during the performance or before the performance, maybe using some sort of dual reality. If you had any sort of suggestion or places I could look that would be great. Thanks

    Nostalgic Cards?

    So, does anyone have a favorite deck of cards? I don't mean objectively. I mean emotionally. Like, your best memories with a certain deck. It could have been the first time you played with cards and realized you loved them, or the deck you did your favorite trick with for the first time, or the...

    Not-Straight Corner Rip TNR

    Okay, so this is going to be hard to explain but i'll try. All tnr (that i've seen) use a straight line (straight corner/all four corners etc.). Basically you normally fold the card to get a straight line and then tear that off. Do some things and then restore it in whatever way. However, is...

    Tricks for 50+ People

    Hello everyone! I, for some reason, have entered a Mr. *Insert my college's name here* contest, and part of it is a talent show. I am a music major, so I think it would be cheating to use my major as my talent. Soooooo it's magic time! I mainly do card tricks, and I plan on doing tricks such as...

    Looking for a Double Faced Deck

    I’ve been looking for a specific double faced deck that on a one side has a mixed up deck, but when flipped over the deck turns back to new deck order. I believe this was discussed in Joshua Jay’s “Unreal”. Does anyone have any ideas?

    Tricks with Blank Cards?

    Hello my friends! We all know the double-backed card, however, I find it more accessible to get my hands on a blank card (via with deck or DIY). I don't see a lot of tricks done with this gimmick. It got to the point I made my own trick called "The Unambitious Card." Do any of you know of any...

    I have been doing card magic on and off for around 8 years now and I have studied books such as Expert at the card table and Royal road to card magic almost completely front to back. I am looking for a bit more of a challenging book that has much more advanced and difficult sleights. Only...

    Card Reveal

    Hi guys, This card reveal seems to be fairly commonly used and looks quite cool: The card is flicked out of the middle of the deck and caught by the magician in his other hand. It'd be fantastic if you could tell me what this reveal is called, as I'd really like to learn it. Two demonstrations...

    Camera Effect

    hey everyone! I’ve seen a lot of similar tricks on TV, like James Corden and AGT (Shin Lim) of effects where they take a picture of a spectator holding a blank playing card and later on when they pull up the picture they’re holding the selected card! WHAT IS THIS CALLED?

    Steve Forte teachings

    Hi guys! Steve Forte is probably one of the best and certainly one of the most respected cardsmen out there. Especially his skill with gambling techniques is incredible.

    Table Faro Applications

    Hi guys, I've heard a lot about the table faro and set out to learning it myself, as it's a really cool move to do. But I have one question: Apart from stacking the deck, what can I actually use it for? Thank you for your input!

    Second Deal Trouble

    Hi guys, me again. This will really be two questions, one for the push-over and one for the strike second. When I do the push-over second deal (I do it as Erdnase teaches with the thumb pushing over two cards at the top of the deck, not at the side) my trouble is that the top card is always...

    Bottom Deal Trouble

    Hi guys, I've been practicing the strike bottom deal for a while now, and in my opinion it's gotten pretty decent by now. My biggest problem at the moment is the noise, as the sound of the bottom deal is much louder than the normal deal, thus making it easy for anyone to notice that I'm dealing...
