Lucky Charm - FREE TRICK!

A deck of cards is examined, shuffled, and one chosen by a spectator, which is lost back into the pack, and from here on, you don’t touch the deck again. You direct the spectator to think of a small number, something between 5 and 20 and they deal down to their number, but it’s not their card.‘Now that WOULD have been amazing!’Suggesting that they might have needed a bit of luck for that to happen, you remove your wallet and from the coin section you remove a large ‘lucky’ poker chip. The spectator touches it to the pack, and then...

Where There's Smoke - Jack Tighe

  By Jack Tighe  Recently, while I was engaged in one of my altogether too frequent 4am YouTube marathons, I came across this video of Chris Pratt doing a simple card trick for Will I Am and Jennifer Lawrence. My reaction was not a favourable one, at least initially. The trick seemed to take forever, the handling was dull, ugly and unsophisticated and there was no attempt at an interesting presentation. Yet, at the end, Jennifer Lawrence reacted like she’d seen real magic. What gives? At first I was, like many magicians who saw that clip, scornful...“Pfft. If she thought...

Get the money!

free awesome card trick

You shuffle a deck of cards, and invite a spectator to play a simple game - highest card wins!     You cut the deck and end up with the 9H.  You feel so confident about it, you put a £20 note on the table.  Highest card takes it.

'Thanks...

Going Old School (and a Card At Any Number)

It's funny - I've never really thought of myself as an 'old fashioned' magician, but it's definitely becoming more and more obvious. I worked out a trick based on Roy Johnson's Card In Gum, and sent it to a friend (who also happens to own a successful magic shop).  The effect was simple - a torn card is sealed in one envelope (the little pay envelopes), and a stick of chewing gum in another.  SHAZAM!  They are supposed to change places, but the first envelope is opened, and instead of the card pieces, it contains a stick of gum... the...

Borrowed Shuffled Deck?

Borrowed Shuffled Deck?

Performing something with a regular deck at short notice is always a challenge, especially if you have just shuffled or borrowed the cards! In these situations, I like to go for something self working, and that way you can concentrate on putting the effect across and also just connecting and interacting with your spectators and having a good time. Over the years, I've created and collected a pile of tricks that meet these conditions, but recently I was reminded of a Charles Jordan trick (with some Dai Vernon embellishments) that was a real fooler, and if you can borrow a deck of cards (doesn't...
