Calling Card ExtraCalling Card Extra
by Rodger Lovins


The magician has a card selected and noted and placed on top of the deck. The card changes to a blank card. The spectator holds the blank up near their face. The magician takes a photo of the spectator holding the blank card when the camera is shown to the spectator, the photo is of them holding the selected card!

Comes with written instructions, with routines and ideas!

This is some of the best street magic you can do. It blows them away every time!

Calling Card Extra is designed for digital cameras, and larger screen PDA’s. It works the same way as Calling Card, but is designed for larger screens. This way if you don’t have a cell phone with a camera, you can still do Calling Card with your Digital Camera, or PDA with Calling Card EXTRA!

Crystal CardCrystal Card
by Pieras Fitikides

Crystal Card is a revolutionary idea based on a new principle. It can be used to perform a wide variety of surprisingly visual effects including:

  • Crystal Card: Two cards thought of by two spectators are magically revealed on a piece of green crystal right before the very eyes of the audience!
  • Past and Future: A card selected by a spectator materialises on the performer’s crystal. The performer claims that he saw the selected card through his crystal before the card was actually selected and proves it!
  • Bizarre Revelation: The performer rests his palm over a green crystal – a card, thought of by a member of the audience, magically appears on the crystal

Whacked Book TestWhacked
by Mark Elsdon


The performer introduces a book, “Dave Gorman’s Googlewhack Adventure”, which he says he has enjoyed reading recently. After briefly explaining the concept of ‘Googlewhacking’, he passes the book to a member of the audience, who looks through the book and eventually decides on one of the ‘Googlewhacks’. After some typically funny byplay and a couple of false starts, the performer gets serious and tries a proper test. He detects subtle inflections in the participant is allowed to keep the book as a gift and a souvenir.

So what exactly is ‘Whacked!’? It is a 10 minute mind-reading routine which revolves around Dave Gorman’s best-selling book “Googlewhack Adventure”. If you’ve no idea what that is, you can bring yourself up to speed by heading over to http://www.davegorman.com/googlewhack

A Cut Above By Kenton Knepper

A Cut AboveA Cut Above
by Kenton Knepper


As many of you know, Kenton is more than a magician or a mentalist… He is a Wizard. And to him, that means that sometimes the lines get blurred between the two.

Often times a spectator wants you to tell them the future. A Cut Above is perfect for the impromptu `reading’ by a magician, or as an opener for a more in depth session.

A blank card is shown to be the spectators future. Somewhere along the `path’, they choose to make a change. You cut the card in two pieces – where they want you to – and then you show that there were many choices printed on the back. Their choice proves to be a positive and moving experience every time.

A Cut Above comes with three different versions of cards so that you can repeat the effect – and with plenty of each to perform dozens and dozens of times.

Phantom Band 360

Phantom Band 360

by Brian RogersPhantom Band

A totally new take on the classic idea of solid thru solid. Here’s how it goes:

Phase One – Borrow a bill and show a normal everyday rubber band. Fold the bill in half, then fold the bill around the band. One end of the band is inside the bill, with the other on the outside. Then slowly melt the band entirely to the inside of the bill!

Phase Two – Show the bill with the band inside it, from both sides. You can even have spectators behind you during the entire effect! Take one end of the band out of the bill, leaving the other still hooked inside the bill. Then visibly and slowly melt the band right thru the bill! You get an instructional DVD.
