Everyone is invited to place their hands flat upon the table, little fingers touching, seance style around the case. The performer has joined in, his fingers lightly touching the case and the adjoining spectator's little fingers. The ring of energy is complete. With attention so firmly aroused, the chosen card, with no perceptible trickery, floats eerily off the case. It floats up, twists and moves a little, then floats back down. Any spectator may now remove the chosen card. It is indeed endowed with special forces.
Volume Three of the Pocket Mysteries Series.
The magician displays a poor poker hand, one a cheater might try to pawn off as a flush. Describing the methods of a professional card shark, and with zero moves, the poker hand turns into Four-of-a-Kind with Aces! Continuing the explanation of cheaters? secret moves, the hand becomes a Royal Flush in Spades!
Get this? only five cards are used...and they are tabled at the conclusion of the effect, displaying both faces and backs!
Comes complete with photo-illustrated instructions and a very special set of blue-back, poker-size Bicycle cards printed by the U.S. Playing Card Co. just for this routine.
Effects include Ellis Ring standards like Ring Off Rope and Ring Off Wand, plus Chuck Leach's multi-phase routine Get Loopy. A black wedding band jumps from your finger to the rope, escapes from the rope twice and eventually reappears back on your finger!
The boxes have a complete cover. They are in two different colors. We will presume they are black and red. The magician opens the black box, and inside it is the red box. Obviously the red box is smaller than the black box. The red box is removed, and if you wish you could make a production of silks, spring flowers, streamers etc. from the box. The box is finally shown empty. You now close the black box, put it into the red box, and close the red box. Obviously the black box is now smaller than the red box.
This can be repeated as often as you like. Gozinta Boxes work on an ingenious geometric principle. The boxes are completely solid and rigid. They are not flexible, or elastic, and there are no sliding or moving parts, trap doors, substitutions or any such subterfuges.
We supply the set of boxes ready to perform. Boxes are crafted from heavy board, Rexene coated for long life, and supplied complete with instructions at a very modest price. You use your own production items if you wish to make a production from these.
You'll receive the only authorized manuscript with variations in preparation, handling and performance plus a section with questions and answers which allows you to utilize this principle to it's fullest!

Have any card selected, signed and then returned to the deck. The signed card magically jumps to the top of the deck several times. This time place a large red heart sticker on the back of the signed card. And the card is lost in the deck.
Without any funny moves or cover the deck is tapped on the back of the spectators hand. The heart INSTANTLY and VISUALLY appears on the back of the top card. This card is turned over and is the spectators signed card.
Next, the magicain takes out a lighter, lights it, and holds it under the wrong card: "Sometimeswhen you heat the card, it changes". The card is turned over, only to reveal the spectators selection.
Okay, so far nothing new...Read this: The magician now attempts to change the selection back to the wrong card again. For a second time the lighter is held under the card, but this time the card got seemingly TOO hot, which caused the ink of the card to run! when the card is shown again, the face of their selection has actually melted away! Visually and magically, the card is "restored" back to its original condition, and can be handed out for examination!
Then it's a spectators turn to give it a try...A spectator is asked to place any coin, their wallet and their watch onto the table. They do so, placing them down in any order. The performer explains that the objects are going to act as markers and removes a deck of cards from his pocket. He asks the spectator to try and cut exactly 10 cards off the top of the deck. They do so and are instructed to place the pile in front of their coin.
The magician then asks them to cut another pile, this time 12 cards and place the pile by their watch. Finally, the spectator is asked to try to cut 15 cards, which go by their wallet.
The performer now admits to misleading the audience a bit, explaining that the lesson wasn't about being dexterous, but about misdirection. He explains that by giving them a difficult and specifiic task to concentrate on, it mentally persuades them away from what is actually happening. The top cards of each pile are slid forward to the object they are by. What would have happened if they had cut even just one card more or one card less in each pile? The piles are now turned over to show standard playing card faces. The card cut by the coin is turned over, and the word Coin is seen to be printed on the card! The card by their watch says Watch and, of course, the card by their wallet says Wallet boldly across the face.
Comes with all of the necessary, specially-printed cards on Bicycle stock and detailed instructions.
Hyper Smith is a very practical and self working mental effect. It allows you to reveal a word and a symbol randomly selected by two spectators. No fishing and nothing is written or forced. With Hyper Smith you can create a sensation at your parlor or close up show. Very visual and easy to do.
Comes complete with clear round box, gimmick and detailed instruction sheet in English and Japanese languages.
A spectator is asked to write the name and suit of ANY playing card on any piece of paper. YES ANY playing card!
The magician removes one playing card from a regular deck and hands it Face Down to the spectator. The paper is Unfolded...the card is Turned Over. They are IDENTICAL!
Mark Mason knows REAL Card Magic!
Spectator writes name & suit of ANY card on a piece of paper. Card removed from the deck matches card on folded up paper ANY Card, Pen, Deck, or Paper! NO Switch, Force, or Questions!
You bring out your key chain, remove a single key, and place it into the spectator's hand. You now remove the metal key tag from the chain and draw attention to the hole running through it. You place the tag into the spectator's other hand. You then explain that you are going to make "nothing" move from one location to another. You have the spectator tap her two fists together and ask, "What did you feel move" The spectator says, "Nothing." You say, "Perfect!"
The spectator opens the hand with the tag and the hole that was once there, is now gone! The "nothing" has vanished! Stranger still, when the spectator opens her other hand she discovers that "nothing" really has moved! She finds not one, but TWO holes in the key she has been holding the entire time!
The key is never switched and your hands are completely empty at the end. It practically works itself! Complete with custom made key tag and key.
Includes thorough instructions and all the (7" X 4.5") cards needed.
Cards are singly and clearly dealt one at a time on to the table. Each is seen to have a blue back. The performer cautions the spectator not to be influenced in any way.
A spectator chooses any card at all. It is the only red back card. But that's just for starters...
Suddenly all the blue back cards freely shown and dealt on to the table become red back cards too.
These cards are placed on to the blue deck, and now the entire deck turns into red backed cards as well!
The deck can be fanned, shuffled, spread out the cards have all red backs and the faces are seen to be entirely normal.
Straight to the effect, without any nonsense.
There is even an additional bit where a card placed into the pocket becomes another card, and the original card turns blue! The deck is entirely examinable.
Kenton has performed this effect to rave reactions with real people in real world performing situations.
Audiences laugh, freak out, and never know that this crazy, eye-popping effect is one of the easiest tricks you may ever do!
Comes complete with full instructions and special Bicycle card. Use your own red Bicycle Poker deck.
Comes with special Bicycle deck and detailed instructions.
A spectator chooses ANY card a free choice. Instantly it is shown to be the only blue card in the red deck.
But in a blink of an eye, their card turns into a red backed card again! This is QUICK and VISUAL. A second later, it turns into a blue back once more. The back of their chosen card keeps changing with seemingly no moves at all. Just a flip or a snap, and the card changes by turning it over. Straight to the magical effect, no delay, no nonsense. How a real color changing card was meant to look. The performer claims that trying to change the card too many times causes trouble, and the card is finally seen to have NO FACE at all but rather TWO DIFFERING COLOR BACKS.
This card can be freely shown it is one card only. The rest of the deck may be examined completely. A special method developed by Kenton Knepper does all of the work for you. You don't even have to do a double lift. Kenton has remade a classic effect he performed in his younger, technical card days, into a trick anyone can now do. It's a classic bit with a distinctly Kenton edge and gimmick.
THE SPECIAL CARD DOES IT ALL.
Kenton has performed this effect to rave reactions with real people in real world performing situations.
Audiences laugh, freak out, and never know that this crazy, fast-paced and eye-popping effect is probably the easiest trick you will ever do!
The gimmick allows you to show the card fairly and openly, time and time again. You can even flip it around in your fingers showing all sides.
NO double stick tape. The deck may be shuffled freely without concern. NO difficult moves. NO noisy sticking or prying. Nothing to get messy in your pocket. No rough/smooth.
NO SLEIGHTS REQUIRED
And to top it all off - it's not expensive. We've made it easy to play with this gimmick and find your own interesting applications for magic and mentalism.
Comes complete with instructions and special Bicycle card. Use your own red Bicycle deck or you can even borrow a deck and sneak this single card gimmick in to do the whole routine with their borrowed deck.
For centuries, lives and body parts have been wagered and lost in a bizarre game called, Life and Limb!
The magician offers to play a game which has been theorized to be the source of the phrase "to risk one's life and limb." An envelope is placed on the table and five cards are dealt out, each of which have a body part drawn on them. The magician explains that if the spectator selects any card on the table that doesn't match the one in the envelope, they win and earn the magician's life. However, if they select the same card as the one in the envelope, the magician gets one of their limbs. Those are pretty good odds, four for them and one for you. You even make the game easier by letting the spectator see some of the cards! They freely choose one, ending on the card with a finger drawn on it. However, in the end they cheat fate and retain their finger!
Now with the Linking Pins, you can create the same illusion close-up.
This set comes complete with two regular pins and one expertly gaffed pin. Routine comes with detailed instructions and plenty of photo's to make learning easy.
The pins themselves are precision made, the gimmicked pin can withstand visual inspection at a close range. These are masterfully crafted and will last a lifetime.
The routine is very clever and will be guaranteed to entertain even the most jaded audience members. Find out why linking metal through metal has become a classic of magic!
Supplied complete with powder coated metal cylinder, glass, gimmick, and working instructions.
Once done you remove a giant playing card from an envelope. With dramatic flair you turn the card around and there is the spectators card! Along with the other 51 cards that are printed on it (this gets a great laugh).
But wait there's more. Offer to repeat the effect, only this time you take out a marker pen and make a large X on one of the 52 cards. Your spectator is now requested to think of another card and when you turn the giant card around your spectator's choice is the only card with an X on it!
This trick may be instantly repeated if you wish.
To all appearances it is a clear net Shopping Bag. Yet you can use it for some very strong mental effects, or general effects where you need to force an item. Here are just three of the dozens of amazing effects you can perform with this bag.
There are several effects on the market, working on a very clever mechanical lock, where one key from half a dozen or more opens a lock, while the others do not. And the key that unlocks some treasure, (like a hundred buck bill between two plates, or a bar of gold in a clear chest) is the last one the performer gets, after the audience has had a free pick of all the others. (We make a model of the mechanical lock, advertised as Kontrol Key!) You can easily duplicate this effect with the Force Shopping bag, using a genuine lock, and several similar keys tied to ribbons or large key tags, only one of which will open the lock.
With each bag you get a 12 page instruction manuscript that gives you the basic handling techniques, and a few examples of the wide variety of effects possible. As you use the prop you will soon create many amazing routines of your own. With routines by Gay Ljungberg, Ian Adair, & Sam Dalal.
Three red backed cards are shown and only you, the magician knows their identities. A blue backed deck is introduced, and th red cards are placed one by one, face down into the pack. The spectator then looks through the face up pack, and calls out three cards. These selections - not forced - are removed from the deck. They are the ONLY red backed cards in the pack - which is ribbon spread on the table to prove it!
Uses only one deck. No sleights. No forcing. Master it in minutes. Seriously.
Nice and long can be stretched across the stage or right down the audience.
50 Feet, Pack of 10 Psc.
A deck is introduced with the name of a person written on the back of every card. Two predictions are handed out, whereupon the magician accurately divines both a FREELY CHOSEN CARD and a FREELY CHOSEN NAME in a stunning double prediction!
No sleights, no forces - just incredibly clean magic! Simon Lovell called it "Fantastic!", and Hank Lee called it "a killer card routine - it'll fool even those in-the-know!"
Comes complete with an illustrated booklet and with the special Bicycle Poker Size Deck.
