 1 - Colours
  • Magic tricks you can use as openers are very valuable to close-up magicians. This is a visual colour change  in which everything is examinable! You take out a blue back deck out of a red playing card card case and ask a spectator to touch any playing card. You can then tap the selected card on the playing card case and ittransforms back to red! Tap the playing card case onto the deck... that visually transforms to red as well! All the playing cards are now red... and  can be given out for examination!

    2 - WRONG CARD
    This is a very cool magic trick using the classic plot where a magician can't find the spectators chosen playing card. He then takes the card case to tap gently on the incorrect card. It visually transforms into the choosen playing card! No need to do any force, the playing card can even be signed. This is a striking, visual magic trick, that you can do over and over again.
  • A signed, torn and instantly restored playing card routine without the years of learning sleight of hand. Tool strips out any hard to do moves and sleights! Do you know how to do a triple lift?  If you do, you can be performing this one in just 10 minutes.



Without a doubt one of the easiest but super strong card cheating demonstration you can do! You cut the deck of cards in two parts and then ask your spectator to shuffle them. Once you have the cards back, you can instantly produce all  four aces! (for example...). No palming required, leave you sleight of hand at home, as easy and simple as possible!


  • Have a playing card signed and lost in the deck. Explain that to find the playing card, you need to use your... credit card! Just take the card case and touch the deck with it : Your credit card visibly appears on the top of the deck! Give it to the spectator and tell him he can insert it wherever he wants in the deck, he will find his signed playing card under it. This fails... You seem embarassed until you realize that the signed playing card has vanished... go though each card, the signed card really isn't in the deck at all! Show your hands completely empty, and take the playing card case which is on the table  When you open it, the signed card it s taken out of it! 
  •  6 - ILLUSION
    Perform the Sub Trunk as a close-up magic trick! The magician remove an ace of spades and a Queen of hearts from the deck, he explains they will both represent  the Magician, and his Partner performing the famous illusion of  The substitution Trunk. He takes the playing card case for examination, the magician puts the ace of spades inside and closes it. The queen of hearts is openly placed face up on the deck of cards... Then the magician takes the card case and taps on the Queen of Hearts which visually changes into the Ace of Spades! The performer opens the card case and the Queen of Hearts is now inside! A visual effect, totally self working , ideal for TV or for children.

    7 - BIRTH DATE
    Do you like Mentalism? The performer asks a spectator to choose four people from the audience who knows her very well. Each of them touch a card at random when the deck is held face down and the four cards are slowly put on the top of the deck, without any suspect moves. The mentalist asks the spectator to turn the four cards face up one by one... their value indicates her birth year! Hard to believe, but completely SELF WORKING, NO sleights required!

    8 - KNIFE
    Do you know the famous Gaëtan Bloom's Card Stab? In this version the spectator can shuffles the cards and put them by himself in the cardcase! Then you lock it with a rubber band ... You then gives a kniffe to hanlde to the spectator and drop the cardcase in an empty enveloppe... Suddenly, you impale the bag on the knife : The signed card is stabbed on the kniffe while the cardcase is still closed by the rubber band... Everything is done for examination ... No Palm, just devilish and hyper easy to realize!

    A card is chosen and lost in the deck in a very clean way. It seems impossible to find it back. The magician takes the card case and caress the deck with it as for a magic move : All the cards instantly turn face up! All the cards... except the chosen one! And everything can be given for examination right away!

    10 - TRIUMPH
    A card is selected and lost in the deck. To make it more impossible, the magician shuffles the cards face up and face down : One can clearly sees that the cards are shuffled face up and face down... A simple magic move with the card case on the cards, and they instantly all turn face up... except the chosen card! A very easy and extremely visual version of the classic « triumph » effect that can be performed stand up without any table

    11 - GHOST CARD
    A card is chosen and lost in the deck. The magician explains that to find it back, he will pick 4 cards at random. He clearly shows four cards in his hands and of if them appears to be the selection... A simple magic move, and all the cards vanish except the chosen one! Read that : No Palm! Just a very clever way to use the gimmick for an original and visual application!
