Well this is my very first post on Theory11. I heard its a GREAT place for magicians but probably not the best for people JUST starting out, dunno cause their isn't a beginners forum. So I guess i'll just talk a lil about myself. I'm 16 and I want to start doing magic as a hobby because I don't really got any hobbies now since I used to paintball and do 3D Model Editing but now their becoming a daily thing and I want to major in 3D Model Editing and paintball is now a sport then a hobby cause I'm in a team and etc... So I don't really know MUCH about magic just the only reason why I got into it is because I just showed a simple trick to my parents that I learned online and they were surprised. I picked up this deck of cards today, my first deck of cards, they are http://www.jjtinc.net/catalog/popup_image.php?pID=243&osCsid=16573216e8988e5a9b1a14dca22fe31a So basically my question is... How can I learn magic? Is that deck of cards I bought good for magic? Can ANY deck of cards be used for magic? Is their a forum or website that I can go to that helps magic beginners? Basically ... how can I learn to get good in magic cause I know nothing atm.
