Nick Trost is well known for his simple, easy-to-do brand of card magic. He uses subtle moves and principles rather than difficult sleight of hand to produce entertaining card effects.
This book contains 122 of his best tricks, plus variations of these effects by fellow magicians. Most of the tricks have been gathered from his column in The New Tops and from his manuscripts, books and marketed items. All of the material has been revised and rewritten especially for this book. There are also many new, unpublished items here that are sure to delight the card magician.
Among the tricks included are such gems as Double Pinochle with an Elevator Finish, Matched Picture Cards, Eighteen-Card Poker and Blind-Sight. All of the tricks are described with easy-to-follow instructions, accompanied by 161 clear illustrations by Joseph K. Schmidt.
Here are a few of the areas covered:
Also included is an appendix of useful sleights and subtleties.
This is a Fine Tabby Silk square. Also available in 9, 15, 18 and 36 inch squares in Red.
Ten more routines with two decks of cards.
TWO-DECK CARD TRICK (U.F. Grant): A spectator shuffles a deck and picks a card. You count to the value of this card in a second deck and find the matching card!
MIRACLE REVERSE (Francis Haxton): A red card is placed in a blue deck. A blue card is placed in a red deck. These two cards reverse themselves and they are shown to be the cards removed from the opposite colored decks!
PACKED BAGS (Aldo Colombini): A spectator touches a card which is reversed in the deck. You remove another deck and you reveal the same card in a spectacular way!
SECOND CHOICE (Gus Southwall): Three matching pairs are found, using you, a spectator and two shuffled decks!
THE SAVAGE (Aldo Colombini): A series of 'effects' (including a poker demonstration) using two decks of cards!
RESULT OF THOUGHT (Roy Scott): Cards are dealt from two decks at the same time and cards are matching according to the selection of the spectator!
ALIEN ENCOUNTER (Peter Duffie): A card is selected from a blue deck. In a red-backed deck you remove the AS to attempt to locate the selection. The Ace, at the end, becomes the selection!
RENDEZVOUS (Nick Trost): Two decks are shuffled, by you and the spectator. You cut your deck into three packets and the spectator does the same. The top card of each packet match!
ULTRA COINCIDENCE (Martin Gardner): A double matching effect is achieved by the most economical means possible!
MIND OVER MATTER (Larry West): The performer first demonstrates the ability to 'mentally' influence a spectator to name a pre-chosen card. Then the performer magically causes the matching card to jump to the other deck and appear at a number chosen by another spectator!
Running Time Approximately: 40min
Shift the spots on a die to an impossible position.
Dr. Sack's dice routine is in the pockets of many performers for a reason-it's a time-tested classic. And while the ending as it was first described is good, it leaves a lot of magicians wanting a little something extra.
That's where a gentleman from Texas named Ronnie Ramin comes in. He solved the problem in the most amazing way to date. Ronnie keeps the best features of the Sack routine and then adds the ending that it has always needed.
Unlike anything before it, with Crooked you finish by really moving the dots on a die to a new position (an odd position!) and then handing it out for examination in this new, impossible condition.
Crooked is produced by TRCKY and comes with three dice, a natural linen bag to carry everything (stamped with a tribute to Dr. Sack) and a DVD explaining Ronnie's routines. The DVD also includes effects by David Regal and Rich Aviles, plus much, much more.
A quick and simple single-die routine.
Expanding on the classic Dr. Sack routine with two dice, and Ronnie's killer new ending.
Les Scheyer's Dice Interlude
A very cool intro to any dice routine, and a magical way to show all six sides of a die.
David Regal's Spot Remover
David kindly allowed us to include his wonderful one-die effect on the DVD. This is great!
Rich Aviles' Die Easy
Rich streamlined Ronnie's two-dice effect and added a devious method to clean everything up at the end.
Rich's Visible Slide
This allows you to get one-ahead while you appear to visibly slide one of the spots on a die to a new location.
"A great ending that actually fits the premise. Excellent!"
- Steve Mayhew
"Now THAT is the best version I have ever seen! Beautifully constructed."
- John Carey
"For close up and intimate workers, this is plain and simple a reputation maker that you'll use the rest of your life. This is one of the best value, high return on investment, magic items that I've purchased ever."
- Jack Carpenter

Justin Miller. Magic creator extraordinaire, and world-class sleight-of-hand artist. Hot off SyFy's hit TV show Wizard Wars, Justin joins us At The Table for something unique as he plans to take all of the effects he will be teaching, and perform them for a live audience prior to this event.

There will be magic ranging from never before published effects like VooDoo NoDude, which involves PK touches, fire and a bit of insanity, to updated handlings of things like Justin's ever popular Freedom Pack.
A special event that should not be missed!
