Psychokinetic Time - Banachek £18
Banachek's Psychokinetic Time Trick Do you remember the stunning magic effect that Master Magic Man David Blaine used to open his "Street Magic" TV special?
In effect, he borrowed a watch from a man sitting in his car and checked the correct time. He placed the watch back in the man's hands and then asked him to think of a number to move the time. The man said "24" and after a few seconds of mental hocus-pocus, the man opened his hands and saw the watch indeed MOVE AHEAD 24 MINUTES! The reaction was incredible!
Now, you can learn the original method and forcing techniques used for this amazing effect in Banachek's 26- page manuscript Psychokinetic Time. Psychokinetic Time comes complete with nine clear photos and descriptive text that details the ultimate impromptu method for altering the time on a spectator's watch while held in their own hand!
Other effects and concepts with watches are also discussed using the secret principles. No "gadgets" or difficult handling.
This is for the serious magician, mentalist or conjuring enthusiast - but can be mastered by anyone!

Telepathy Personified - Ron and Nancy Spencer
For years Ron and Nancy have fooled audiences worldwide with their Minds in Harmony act. Here, for the first time, they reveal all of their treasured secrets - secrets that will enable the reader to recreate this act in its entirety. In his foreword to this book Edwin Dawes says:
"Despite the numerous times I have seen Ron and Nancy Spencer present their act it has never palled, the freshness and apparent spontaneity of their interaction (not to mention the challenge for the magician of endeavouring to detect their methods!) has captured the imagination. For much of the second half of the twentieth century Minds in Harmony brought pleasure and mystery to audiences. Now, as Ron and Nancy have retired from performing, they have decided to divulge the details of their techniques, a decision that will be welcomed by those who wish to emulate them as well as by those who are simply curious to learn how it was done. Hard work is the short answer but the reader will find everything he or she needs to set about mastering a two-person telepathic act and one that can be constructed from material that has been tried, tested and proven to be hugely successful."
The Spencer's complete act is revealed here for the first time anyone with the desire to learn a baffling two-way telepathy act need look no further.
This wonderful book has 140 pages together with numerous line drawings and photographic illustrations. It is a large format hardback volume (nine-and-a-half inches by 6-and-a-quarter inches) printed on high quality paper with a full colour, glossy-laminated dust jacket.
Whilst sorting through the drawers... I found one last copy!
Long Cat - Short Cat - (Boomerang Illusion)
This version of the classic boomerang illusion will "blow you mind".
You will no longer trust even your own eyes. As you the magician talk about optical illusions, you display two cardboard strips with Cats on them. One Cat has a blue collar the other a red collar. You also show a third strip that is a ruler. With this you prove that the two Cats are the the same length. Then explain the optical illusion. Suddenly it is no longer an optical illusion but reality!
To the eyes of the spectators, it appears that the two strips stretch and shrink.
For the climax, the magician proves that the two strips have actually changed size.
The audience will be fooled by this effect, but so will the Magician! This looks so impossible that you will fool yourself every time you demonstrate it.
Oddly I never thought much about the boomerang effect until I saw this! This has taken it several steps further... Amazing. You WILL love this!
You offer to take the spectator on an imaginary walk through a casino. You instruct him to imagine going through the door of the casino and visualizing people playing a game of Craps. Ask him to imagine someone throwing a set of dice and the dice landing on the table. Tell him not to announce the total.
You show some napkins or Post-It notes and point out that they are numbered 1, 2 and 3. Take a napkin or Post-It note #1, pretend to read their mind, and then write down the total of the dice as you visualize it in your mind. Then ball up the napkin or paper and drop it into an empty cup. Now that your prediction is captured, ask them to announce the total of the dice, so they cannot later change things. Then ask them to imagine going further into the casino and visualize a spinning roulette wheel with the ball starting to slow down. Have them visualize where it lands from 1 to 36, but do not say anything. You write down a prediction on #2, ball it up, and toss it into the cup. You ask him to announce the spot on the roulette wheel where the ball ended, so that they cannot change their choice later.
Finally, you ask him to imagine moving on to a Black Jack table and to visualize the dealer's cards with one card face up and one face down. You now ask him to imagine walking behind the table and behind the dealer to peek at the face-down card. You write down a prediction on #3, ball it up, and toss it in the cup. Now ask them to announce the face-down card that he peeked at. Lastly reveal all three predictions and show that all three are correct.
Supplied with instructions and special gimmick for the fantastic mental routine, and many other possible uses that you can carry with you in your pocket.
The 18+ in the title could represent the legal age at which you could drink at a bar, and legitimately watch the routines in this outfit! Or it could be the number of cards you get in this outfit, or the number of routines detailed for you in this manuscript of routines. You take your pick!
Magic 'at the bar', or for a partying adult audience, gives you an excellent performing platform. You have an audience with the time and inclination to watch, observation skills that are not at their peak, and where a little entertainment goes a long way. You have an audience that is ripe for the type of effects this outfit offers, - all revolving around tipsy themes, with no exceptional skill or sleights.
Most of the effects are completely self-working, just follow the instructions. Others require a small amount of manipulation, well within the reach of the most modest close up performer. These effects could just as easily be performed at a restaurant table, at a hotel, garden party or private function - anywhere close-up magic and drinks may combine!
We supply you 18 "drink" cards, (in an attractive wallet), and a 24 page book of routines to perform with these cards. There are some 18 routines, plus variations.
Pick up the cards, follow the instructions, and we guarantee you some great entertainment
at your next party, restaurant or pub session!
Danny Archer's 3-ball Routine
Three Ball Routine by Danny Archer. Danny Archer`s version of the classic three balls routine.
Effect: A rubber ball is magically produced, which then vanishes and reappears. One ball magically becomes two, then three rubber balls. One at a time, the three balls invisibly travel across to the left hand, then all three balls vanish completely!
This is the real work on the legendary 3 ball routine (a staple for Johnny Thompson, David Roth, Bob Sheets Dai Vernon and many other well known pros). Now you can include this classic of magic in your repertoire.
Manuscript and balls
Four jumbo Five of Diamonds are shown by counting them faces upwards. One card is turned face down, showing a regular back. The other three cards magically turn face down, showing regular backs. One card is turned face up and the other three cards magically turn faces up, as well.
Now for the spectacular climax. The performer now shows that each card has a different and brightly colored back-the regular backs have vanished!
The faces can once again be shown and, if you desire, you can turn the bright color backs into regular backs and end just as you began.
Fits in your jacket pocket. Great for Close Up Table Hopping or on a large Stage!
Universal Floating Gimmick
Universal Levitator is a wonderful gimmick that allows you to float many objects
including soda cans, bottles, cell phones, compact discs, balls, cups, DVDs, glasses,
dishes, light bulbs, etc.
You can pick up any CD and cause it to levitate between your hands. While drinking a soda the can suddenly starts to float away from you. Borrow a cell phone and make it defy gravity. Just imagine going into a restaurant, picking up a drinking glass, and floating it and then returning it to the table. Everything can be examined.
- The gimmick is specially made.
- No batteries, threads, or magnets involved.
- Can be put on in seconds.
- Carry it in your pocket.
- No set up necessary, its always ready.
These are an extra long version (you can of course cut them shorter if you wish)
No Instructions just the gimmick but if you need instructions... Probably time to take up plumbing!
Ghost Box By Mark Mason (JB Magic)
There are dozens of different effects that can be performed with this box. 2 cards are selected from a deck, one is placed face down in the centre of the deck the other is placed inside the ghost box. A snap of the fingers the cards change places. You can even sign the back of the selection and the signature will also transpose.
Any card is
selected from a regular deck, signed and returned. The cards are replaced back
in the case. Slowly the flap of the case opens and one card rises out of the deck,
its the signed selection.
Imagine being able to show a card box EMPTY. But at anytime you can reach inside the box and remove a playing card, business card etc.
Comes with special box, gimmick card and several routines and ideas.
Probably self explanitory but just in case...
lenghts of coloured rope are used.
Spectators help to tie them into three loops. Ane yes you guessed it! You the master Magician that you are manage to pass solid through solid ala Linking Rings but with rop e!
This however unlike the liking rings that take a while to truly master. You will have this practically perfect in minutes. Leaving you to entertain your audience with its presentation.
Whats more take up very little room. Plays BIG. And no resetting always ready to go!
This is a beautiful set of linking ropes. Good strong "Gimmick" and well made the ends as you might be able to see in the pictures are folded back in on themselves so they cannot come unravelled.
Colours many vary from set to set.
This is truly the ultimate "Wild Card" routine. No table, or spectators hands. It all happens right there in YOUR hands. Perfect for table hopping, walk around any closeup situation. AND, when you have finished its reset and ready to go again. Based around Steve Hamiltons in the hand wild card with my own changes and improvements.
This time however the story is based around a village where its occupants disappear one by one "Court Cards go BLANK"
Very visual, lots of different styles of changes.
Here is my friend Zak Stone performing his routine Here
Or me... Here
You will use this!
Hopping Traditional Chinese coins - AKA Hopping Halves
At last a version of "Hopping Halves" that anyone can afford. Made with traditional looking Chinese coins.
This of course opens up the imagination for all sorts of presentations. Like lovers, these coins they can never be apart...
Two coins are shown, a red and a black traditional chinese coin . One of the coins is dropped into your pocket and it immediately reappears back in your hand. The other coin is placed in your pocket and it too hops back. The effect is repeated again and finally, when the poor spectator is about to give up, you open your hand and to his utter astonishment everything has vanished! With this beautiful set of coins the routine is simple to perform and when purchased as a set, represents a terrific value.
Other routines are possbile with the coins supplied
Hopping halves is a trick I use a lot. and never fails to geat great reactions. You won't be dissapointed!
Seven ancient playing cards are shown to be six black spot cards and one king of diamonds.
The performer divides the seven cards and asks the spectators to wager as to which group contains the diamond. He tells the story of an elderly gypsy woman having wagered and lost placing a curse upon the cards.
When the magician next attempted to operate his game he found that all the cards are winners. The cards are fanned to show all the faces are king of diamonds and all the backs as normal.
This has become a real classic.
One of my personal favorites. I promise you'll love this!
SWITCH Unfolding The $100 Bill Change - John Lovick
Few objects that magicians conjure with stir the imagination the way proper currency does. Money never goes out of style. Imagine being able to increase a dollar's value a hundred-fold. In the 1970s, a handful of American magicians encountered an Eastern European circus performer named Vlado, who stunned them all by doing just that! Vlado never published his revolutionary bill change, but variations quickly spread throughout the world of magic. Today it is a close-up standard, known as the $100 Bill Switch
SWITCH collects the best work on this subject from magicians around the world. In addition to a thorough description of the original handling, more than twenty variations are meticulously taught using hundreds of crystal-clear line drawings. The routines include Transpositions, Bill to Impossible Location plots, Torn and Restored effects, and several routines that dont even involve money''

of Burbank Magician's Insurance policy
.The magician has a card selected by a spectator and after several attempts the magician fails to name the card. Luckily, the performer has an insurance policy for just such occasions.
Issued by the venerable firm Floyd's of Burbank, this Insurance Policy covers performing magicians against failure from warped cards, faulty fingers or rambunctious spectators.
After a few comedy bits reading the policy, its unfolded to reveal a huge picture of the chosen card! Youll receive a copy of the policy and instructions. This is an awesome routine!

approx 24 inches by 18 inches
Two children are invited on stage. Three yellow jelly beans are placed one by one in a yellow bag, which is held by the first child - then three in the pink bag held by the other child - and finally three in the purple bag held by the performer.
After some byplay one jellybean is removed from each bag, shown and replaced, to establish which colors are in each bag.
the magic happens.... .
Each bag is shown to hold only ONE bean of each color!
This routine is based on "tricolor" an effect by Eric Lewis, published in his book A Continuation of Miracles. The routine and presentation and patter was created by one of the best kids entertainers in the business today. Not only is this a strong magical effect, but it also has lots of fun audience involvement, and a presentation that encourages sharing between children.
Everything needed for the effect is included
three colored magic bags
- 9 magic jelly beans

This set of classic Rings and Coin trick comes with two REAL JADE BRACELETS that makes it a collector's item. From a small velvet bag you bring out two small jade rings, a red lucky envelope and carefully place them on top of the bag. You explain that the jade rings are traditional lucky charms for newborn babies in China, and newly wed couples give away "lucky money" on their wedding day with these lucky envelopes. From the red envelope you drop out a shiny gold Chinese coin that represents luck and prosperity. Tell your spectator you want to send her good luck and prosperity by performing a ritual using these lucky items. You place the rings over the coin with the red envelope in the middle, and then make a wish to send it your friend. You slowly remove the envelope and the coin is gone! You then repeat the actions and show that the coin has magically reappeared under the ring - "because the blessing will always come back to you one day."
Each baby jade rings set comes with 10 golden brass Chinese coins (for give away), two red envelopes ( one more to spare) for the lucky money. The envelopes are embossed with the Chinese character "Double Happiness". The baby jade rings ( about 2" diameter) are authentic REAL JADE, and all the items are contained in a drawstring black velvet bag. The whole trick's effectiveness lies in this bag, which acts as a black-art mat and performing surface, giving it a good reason to be there. Many presentations themed around "Luck," "Prosperity," and "Blessings" can be created using these fine props. A separate smaller velvet bag is included to store and protect the jade rings when they are not in use. Instructional DVD included. Very easy to perform and great story telling piece. This elegant set of close-up magic can be carried in any close-up case or even in your pocket, always ready to perform.
has added a lovely subtly to this trick as well as making it with very nice props
and remember these are real Jade rings, hence the price!

Real "working" effects for the real "working" magician
here in all their glory are two vintage Absolutely Impossible Wallets
Both almost identical... Almost.
As you might be able to tell from the photos one takes a bridge size card the other a poker sized card.
The only other difference is that the one that takes the bridge sized card is all leather both inside and out the other wallet has black silk lining.
effect itself... Probably one of the cleanest card predictions you could ever
hope for. If you do a search you will find a couple of demos on youtube.
But it goes like this...
From Ken Brooke and Mo Howarth an Absolute Miracle! Easy to perform.
Performer removes a wallet from his pocket, showing a sealed envelope with a prediction inside!
A spectator takes a deck of normal cards (no forcing, no gaffed decks) and shuffles them. The spectator deals off one card at a time, face down on top of each other, and counts down until he/she decides to stop! (They can stop where ever they desire).
NO Al Koran deck used here.
The spectator opens the envelope and takes out the prediction card and then turns over the card that they freely selected and VIOLA the cards match! IMPOSSIBLE but true!
You are left clean. Any deck can be used. No fake envelopes. No palming or sleight of hand. Leather wallet. Perfect for trade shows. Perfect for close-up or walk-around or table-hopping.
Sorry I have no instructions for these wallets but if you watch the demos you will instantly understand the workings.

Special Effects is my latest, and I honestly believe my best book to date. Within its forty pages, you'll encounter fourteen really strong close-up and stand-up routines. All my own offerings appear here in print for the very first time, and include most of the core routines that elevated me to stardom not so many years ago.
I have stripped away virtually all the sleight-of-hand from most of the routines and presented you with a collection of tried and tested 'workers' that are very strong in effect, but equally easy to perform. As I said of one of them, "If I can do it... you DEFINITELY can!" This, I believe, is true of them all.
Along the way Stephen Tucker, who wrote the book for me, has suggested some very clever additions, tips, and ideas, and even a complete routine.
I have been absolutely amazed that, after being quite the finger-flicker myself for many years, I have been able to retain the strength of each effect, but with the absolute minimum of dexterity being required to achieve it.
There are routines with business cards, playing cards, bottles and bottle caps and even one with a silk and a borrowed packet of cigarettes.
Finally, I'd like to thank Pat Page, Steve Beam and Stephen Tucker for permission to include their three routines, and YOU for at least reading this brief book description. I hope that you are now considering buying Special Effects.
At the next convention we both attend feel free to ask me to show you something from the collection, which I'll be more than happy to do.

The magician puts a packet of cards on the table. He says to the spectator, "Let's play a game of imagination. Imagine that these are the four Queens." He pantomimes plucking a card with each hand from the packet. "Imagine that I have removed two of the Queens. Do you think they are the black ones or the red ones?" The spectator says, for example, red. "That's amazing - you're correct!" says the magician. "Now, I will turn one of these Queens face up."
He pantomimes turning one card over, then putting the imaginary card back into the packet. He then says, "Which red Queen do you think I turned over, the heart or the diamond?" The spectator says, for example, diamond. "That's amazing - you're correct again!" says the magician. "Of course, if it's really true, then the Queen of Diamons must be reversed in the packet. Let's see..." He spreads the cards. One is face up. It is the Queen of Diamonds.
"I want to be sure you understand that this magic was accomplished by imagination, not by sleight-of-hand. Therefore, I used a Queen of Diamonds with a different back." He turns over the Queen of Diamonds, showing that it has a contrasting back color!
"Also, because I knew you would pick the Queen of Diamonds, it was not necessary to use any printing on the faces of the other cards." He turns over the three face-down cards, revealing that their faces are blank!
complete with special cards and instructions.
The Magician has a card selected, signed and shuffled back into the deck. A jumbo card is laying face down on the table. The magician asks the spectator if they would be amazed if their selected card is on the other side of the jumbo card. When he turns the jumbo card over there are twenty four mini cards printed on the face. On closer inspection, the spectator is amazed to see one of the cards is their selected card and it has a signature on it! "Look I can even pull the signed card off." The magician says as he begins to pull the card off we see it visibly change into their original signed card. When the magician reveals the face of the jumbo card the spectator sees a blank space where their card used to be.

This is a very special set of ten casino quality, custom made, ceramic poker chips and three of them are secretly gaffed!
Do not mistake this for a 'trick'. This is not your typical flavor of the month, flash in the pan, one trick pony. This is a superior set of professional magicians props, painstakingly designed to perfection (after many failed prototypes!) to ensure maximum visibility against most backgrounds and lighting conditions. Specially manufactured from casino grade ceramic with attention to weight, handling and durability. The modern design is reminiscent of 'Poker Tournament' style chips so, they don't look like tacky magic props. These are professionally manufactured, A-grade casino chips. They look and feel just like the real deal because... they are!
With this unique set of chips and the full and thorough teaching of the ten routines included on the professionally shot instructional DVD, you'll be seeing amazing reactions from your audiences in no time. The routines run the full gamut in terms of difficulty too. From easy, self working tricks to more intermediate effects right the way through to more advanced, professional handlings, there is something here to suit all skill levels.
And, you'll no doubt soon discover and create your own effects and routines because, remember, these chips are a TOOL for magic and the depth of what's possible doesn't stop with the enclosed routines. You'll instantly realize that many existing, classic coin routines can easily be performed with 'The Ammo' chip set!
PLEASE NOTE: The chips used in the video's are early prototypes.
About a great Table Hopping or Close Up Routine, with lots of Audience Participation
and you get to leave your Business Card as the Finale!
Well..."Die-Ception" is exactly that and more...
You receive two hand turned boxes... a dice is placed inside the smaller box by the spectator, who is asked to remember the topmost number before putting the lid onto the box while The Magician looks away...the small box is then placed inside the larger box by The Magician, it is verified that there is no way that The Magician can know which number is face up inside the box...but of course you can!
This effect comes with Wayne's routine Notes and can be used as a 'Mentalist' Prediction, or, by using six business cards in your pocket (numbered 1-6), the appropriate card can be thumbed off to match the number on the dice...thereby giving you an excellent way to produce your Business Card at the end of this routine.
Another great routine from Wayne Dobson matched perfectly with beautiful quality craftsmanship of Colin Rose...
