A Brilliant Prediction Effect with Coins

In this video Vinh Giang performs and teaches a brilliant prediction effect that ALWAYS WORKS. This routine has a lot of built in audience interaction and a killer ending. Best of all, it uses a handful of coins which are an extremely relatable object and can easily be carried with you always.

The Snap Double Lift

 

This is a great extension that can be added to your current double lift to make it more convincing and to demonstrate singularity in the cards. The Double Lift is one of the most important moves in card magic so it's well worth the time to practice it till you master it!

Card to Pocket Tutorial

Card to Pocket is a classic trick in card magic and an excellent application for card palming. You will have to be comfortable with getting a card in palm position and holding it there in order to do this routine, but it's well worth the practice. This routine is so good because it's so flexible and you can modify it however you like depending on the environment and audience.

Modified Pop Over Production Tutorial

This modification on the Pop Over Production is a quick snappy way to produce a card from the pack. It's visually startling and can create a nice audible sound too! It's a perfect edition to your ace production routine, or it can be used to simply find a spectator's card in an impressive fashion.

Productions of this kind got their start from the top of the deck. J.B. Bobo published his “Pop-Over Card” in The Sphinx, Vol. 45 No. 12, Feb. 1947, p. 368. Bruce Elliot later brought the production to the bottom of the deck with his “Fillip” in Phoenix, No. 188, Oct. 1949, p. 751.
The best-known production in this family is by J. K. Hartman, first described in his Packet Magic, 1972, p. 2. As Hartman notes there, his starting point was Neal Elias's “Another Cutting Discovery” in Ibidem, No. 26, Sep. 1962, p. 9. The difference between the two is that the Elias sleight is done as the halves of the deck are put together, while Hartman's handling occurs with the full deck held in the left hand.

MINT Playing Cards are now sold out.



The Launch Edition MINT Playing cards are officially all sold out. MINT 2 will happen eventually, but for now we want to focus our time on improving the new 52Kards App, creating more content for YouTube, and releasing some teaching projects. Thank you everyone who supported MINT!

Secret peeking technique [Tutorial]

This technique allows the magician to know what card the spectator is thinking of. This peek is quick, practical, and incredibly useful. You can have someone freely choose a card, and then immediately shuffle if they desire. You have already secretly seen their card at this point so it's easy to recover control over it and carry on with whatever trick you want.

The New 52Kards APP!

SplitScreen

After many months of planning, development, and BETA testing; the app is finally ready. As of today it can be downloaded for both iOS and Android devices for FREE!

The goal of this app is to pack the entire 52Kards ecosystem into one convenient location that can be accessed anywhere and anytime. We are extremely pleased with the feedback from the BETA testers and are excited to share it with the rest of you now! Hopefully the app provides a great deal of value to you.

P.S. I have a huge favor to ask of you... I wanted to make sure this app was completely free; so that as many of you could benefit from it as possible. After you have had the chance to check out the app, can you please leave a review for it in the Apple App Store/Google Play Store? It would mean the world to me, and I look forward to hearing your feedback on this project!

Learn a Powerful Mental Effect [Tutorial]

In this video Daniel Fernandez and I go over an extremely powerful mentalism trick that you can do with any deck of cards. The trick is very simplistic in nature, but it packs a strong punch and transcends being just a regular card trick when presented properly. In addition to covering the method of this effect, we also have an in depth conversation about performance theory, card forcing techniques, and how to use specific language to enhance the magic. This is the longest video to date on 52Kards, but it's well worth the watch!

Mint Playing Cards is 1 year old.

1 Year ago today we launched the Mint Playing Cards on Kickstarter. The project was completely funded in less than an hour and we ended up hitting 3x our funding goal in the first day! In order to celebrate this day I’ll be giving away a Black Mint deck from my private reserve. These Launch Edition decks are now sold out, so this could be your last chance to get one (we still have Raspberries available).

To qualify for this giveaway, simply visit this post on Instagram, and leave a comment below with your thoughts on the Mint decks and what you would like to see in the future for The Mint Collection.

I'll pick a winner in 1 week and ship out your prize (anywhere in the world).
