Topsy Turvy with a Chosen Card
Simon Lovell introduces Dominatricks, a series dedicated to supplying beginners in magic with very strong, foundational card effects that require little to no sleight of hand at all. This series isn't solely for beginners, though. Experts may be delighted when they stumble upon a couple of long f...
Simon presents a trick that John Northern Hilliard once described as nearly 12,000 years old in his 1994 book Greater Magic (with More Greater Magic). Hilliard was right, this trick has had a very long and interesting theory popping up in various publications until it was popularized by the Engli...
Paul Curry's wonderful trick, Out of This World could be considered the counterpart to the previous one Simon just performed. As that one is known as the Trick that Fooled Einstein, this one has been referred to as the one that fooled Winston Churchill. Your spectator will separate the deck by co...
First published in Close-Up Card Magic in the 1960s, the Lorayne Poker Deal still mystifies and perplexes audience to this day. You'll be able to demonstrate the little amount of work required for you to be an impressive gambling cheat. After you walk your audience through the ins and outs of bot...
Each of the four aces are individually placed into the deck. No two cards are placed into the deck the same way. Similarly, no two cards are found the same way, either. Henry Christ's delightful little trick requires almost no sleight of hand at all to control the aces in your deck and surpass yo...
Simon presents another little trick... or rather, Dominatrick, that he discovered within a Frank Garcia book. A very simple, yet highly impressive move, Find the Card allows you to demonstrate your uncanny ability to track cards as they move through a deck. The trick doesn't end when their cards ...
A Louis Histead trick with a long history within the magic community, Aces from the Pocket will convince your audience that you have some seriously magical finger tips. The aid of only a little bit of prior preparation will be all you'll need to pull this trick off. Soon you'll be hand delivering...
More often than not, your audience is more than a little skeptical to let you alone handle the cards. They want to make sure you aren't pulling a fast one on them. This Eddie Fields trick, Card in the Card Case, lets them take complete control of the cards... or so they'll think.
Telephone tricks are quite prized within the magician community. These are tricks that do not require being in the same room, city, or even state as your spectator. The secret is that it doesn't matter where they are, you'll always be two or three steps ahead of them. They won't be able to deny y...
Do you really want to shock your spectator? If so, this trick will more than exceed your expectations. All you have to do is find their card and be a bit of an industrial spy. It probably wouldn't hurt to know their phone number beforehand too.
Another trick pulled from a significant Frank Garcia book, Whimsy Aces is a classic transformation that'll perplex and stun your audience as you turn your deck's four aces into completely different cards. They'll think you've exposed yourself with some poor hand placement choices, until you flip ...
In another Frank Garcia trick, Now You See Em!, you'll melt your spectator's chosen four of a kind straight out of the deck. Right before their eyes! Unfortunately though, you're going to need those four of a kind later when you want to play cards again. No worries, all it takes is a simple snap ...
One of the great "daddies" of card magic is the Do as I Do principle. A classic trick that was featured in the Anthony Hopkins film, Magic, in its most basic form. Simon demonstrates how it was performed in Magic and another version that was published by Frank Garcia. No matter what you do, just ...
Scarne's Topsy Turvy Cards was the brain child of John Scarne and Bob Hummer. Simon demonstrates the original version of this trick, after which he performs one with his own little twist. When the trick has been completed, the cards in both of your piles will be all mixed around, up and down... o...
Topsy Turvy is a great way to do the face up and down prediction move, but it's not the only way to do this that Scarne and Hummer ever created. This move uses the cards in a slightly different way, though. Instead of mixing the deck up even more, you'll be sorting it out completely... well, all ...
This is a seriously killer trick. One that is very worth being called a Dominatrick. A race to see who runs out of cards first, you or the spectator. As their last card is drawn, it'll become clear that you were one step ahead the entire time.
What happens when John Scarne and Stanley Jaks get together to create a self-working effect? It's Four Deuces, an effect that is so self-working that it's, in Simon's words, "as self-working as a self-working effect could be." You'll perform a miracle, all while holding the cards behind your back.
One of Simon's most requested routines is this version of Karrell Fox's torn and restored tricks, Pookie the Dwarf. Your spectator will sign a random card and it'll be placed back into the deck. As per usual you'll attempt to find the card within the mixed up deck... except this time you'll be do...
Simon walks you through some of his favorite sandwich effects. These moves are fundamental, need-to-knows for magicians at any level. Simon will demonstrate and explain the simple and the lovey dovey sandwiches. Both are easy to pick up and even more fun to perform.
Simon provides a tutorial of his own sandwich, Jack Catch. This move was the first work of Simon's to be published, ever. As the name may have given up, you will use two jacks from your deck to 'catch' the chosen card. Once you've found their card using only two jacks, they'll have to give you cr...
A beautiful thing with sandwich effects is to make the chosen card appear instantly between the cards. You'll fake out your spectator at first, hiding their chosen card. Little do they know, you've set up your trick so well that you could hand the reins over to your assistant and there's nothing ...
What could possibly be practical, fundamental and a potentially unbeatable bar bet simultaneously? A routine that contains multiple foundational, need to know moves for aspiring and established magicians alike? All that while also being a practically unbeatable bet? The Simple Key Card Betcha doe...
Simon teaches you a practically hands-free prediction trick that will surprise your audience every single time. Daryl's Dream Card lets the spectator feel in control as they shuffle and deal the deck out, making the final result all the more puzzling. They'll be unable to understand or explain yo...
This trick builds off the previous Daryl's Dream Card, and still lets the spectator feel like they're in complete control. They'll totally and completely believe in their command over the deck after you've kept your hands to yourself the whole time. However, when they flip the piles they divided ...
Simon introduces a spectacular bar bet that will get everyone at the bar involved and positively invested in the outcome. The whole bar will be shocked when you prove that you can snatch all of their signed cards out of the deck in under 1/8 of a second. They'll refuse to believe you at first, bu...
While most of the tricks taught throughout this series require no sleight of hand at all, there are a few outliers that do. This bonus section covers the very simple sleights that those few outliers will require a knowledge of and experience with.

PICK out the four A's and put them on the table face downwards. To show them, take them by their outer ends and turn them over lengthwise. They must be in a packet one on top of the other. Now turn them face down sideways and they will have been reversed. Replace them thus in different parts of t...
A CARD having been freely chosen, returned to the reversed pack and the card well shuffled, take the pack and put it behind your back. Ask what number the spectator would like it to appear at. Strip the card out and put it second from the bottom. Bring the pack forward, show the bottom card, turn...
WITH the selected card reversed in the pack as usual, hold the pack by the two ends between your hands, face downwards. Ask the spectator to throw a handkerchief over the pack. Then saying, 'Perhaps it will be better to have the pack in sight all the time,' draw the pack away with one hand, the o...
WHEN the shuffled pack with the reversed chosen card is returned to you, cut the pack once at the chosen card bringing it to the bottom. Place the pack in a spectator's pocket, sighting the card but not allowing anyone else to see it. Have a number called. Bring the cards out one by one taking th...
THE effect is that a card is selected, replaced in the pack and the pack wrapped in a handkerchief. This is then gently shaken and the card penetrates it. After the pack with the reversed chosen card is returned to you, lay it face up on your right palm with the narrow ends inwards. Throw the han...
AFTER the usual preliminaries, the pack with the chosen card reversed in it is returned to you. Shuffle it overhand by the ends and bring the chosen card to the top. Put the pack on the table, and cut it into two heaps. Borrow a handkerchief and a penknife, open one blade and lay the knife down. ...
