20 of these tricks have never been in print before! And the ones that have may still be new to you!


Roy Walton – Autograph Hunter
Roy causes a spectator’s signature to jump from one card to anther. You’ll love this!

Gordon Bruce – The Hands of a Surgeon
Gordon compels an unwitting spectator to cut to the four Aces. It’s not often Gordon publishes material, so this is a real treat.

Gavin Ross – The ESP Shuffle
In this first routine, Gavin creates an incredible coincidence with an ESP deck despite the cards being mixed by a spectator.

Gavin Ross – Hot Flush
In this 2nd routine, a randomly cut deck results in a Royal Flush in Spades!

Jim Boyd – Justice is Mine
Jim explains how he deals from the Bottom – then he fools you!

Peter McLanachan – Hofzinser 2001
Peter revisits the Hofzinser Ace Problem and dispenses with the deck, using only four Queens and a freely selected card.

Euan Bingham – A Hobbit’s Tale
In this 1st routine, Euan vanishes the black Aces. When he tries to produce them again he finds the black Queens instead! This is no problem because the Queens suddenly change into the missing Aces. The black Queens are now found reversed in the middle of the deck.

Euan Bingham – Phantom Aces
In this one, Euan causes Four aces to magically pass from inside a wallet to a deck of cards; he then makes the Aces travel from the deck back into the wallet.

Gary Middleton – Diamond Snatch
Gary makes the four Kings magically rise to the top of the pack, one by one, in search of a Diamond haul – the last King finds it!

Gary Middleton – King for a Day
Gary loves the Hofzinser Ace problem; especially when the rest of the cards change to the mates of the selection. And this is precisely what happens here!

George McBride – Captives of the Cranium
We have 3 great routines from George! The 1st effect is an impossible card discovery where one spectator helps find another spectator’s card.

George McBride – Stebbins Prediction
A terrific prediction effect where you will also admire the ingenius methodology!

George McBride – Veeser Meets Steranko
A spectator cuts the deck and finds the four Aces. Just like that!

Steve Hamilton – Thanks to Collins
A professional mind-bender from the late Steve Hamilton. Clever stuff.

Scotty Johnston – Big Bank Hunt
A sandwich trick that fooled the a**e off me!

Richard James – Stranger
Richard uses two Kings to cause the back of a freely selected card to change colour, then it changes back to normal again. You’ll love the simple direct method here.

Iain Girdwood – Total Recall
Iain memorises the colour order of a deck of cards after it has been shuffled by a spectator. 100% every time. Combining a system with a principle, you really do memorise the cards!

Val Le-Val – New Wave Oil & Water
Val’s lovely Oil & Water routine using cards with O & W printed on them. So easy, yet so effective.

David Walsh – Walkaround
David tips his full walk-around card routine – a lot happens! Ambitious Card/Repeat Card to Pocket/Deck to Pocket/Card in Wallet. A 4 minute entertainment.

David Forrest – Eight of Two Kings
David presents a showy production of Four Kings and the Four Aces appear as a stunning kicker!

David Forrest – Skinned
A selected card appears folded inside a packet of cigarette papers….in a flash!

Peter Duffie – Finishing Touch
Peter allows a spectator to choose any four cards at random – then he changes them visibly into four-of-a-kind as they are dealt to the table – or onto a spectator’s hand!

Peter Duffie – 52 Minus 1
A demonstration of psychic powers where only the audience touch the deck.

R. Paul Wilson – Thinking Cap
Paul lets a spectator just think of a card, then he finds it – no set-ups, and no difficult sleights!

R. Paul Wilson – ConCam Cards
Paul’s rendition of the classic Cards Across. Three cards travel from one packet to another, despite both packets being enclosed inside envelopes. No Palming! But if you like Palming, Paul offers a method with that, too.

Dave Robertson – L.K.D. Monte
Dave places a Queen between the two red Aces. So, the Queen is in the middle? No it’s not. An easy and deceptive move that will enhance any 3-Card Monte routine.
