MY FAVORITES ROUTINES WITH CARDS
After years of intense and silent work, this material by Chilean magician Alejandro Guillier comes to light. A work where he takes elements of classical magic and above all, elements of more modern, visual and technical magic. Quick, effective and perfect effects to do on social networks or in person.
In this work, you can see the North American influence in Alejandro's magic, with details that will remind magicians of skillful movements like Bill Goodwin or Dan & Dave.
13 card magic routines explained in detail, which can now be part of your magic repertoire.
You keep in your pocket a card chosen by a spectator, which is signed in the face.
Then you take the four aces, sign one of them on the back and the signature is multiplied and copied on each of the aces. Finally, the signature disappears from all the backs of the aces and travels to the back of the card that was in your pocket.
Changing the idea of making a signature travel, this time a card is burned and left with obvious fire marks on the face and back and is left under the hand of a spectator who feels the heat at all times. Then an indifferent card is taken, and the mark of fire travels on its back, to disappear the mark on the card that is under the spectator's hand.
Matrix tricks are already a classic. In this version, Alejandro covers each of the coins with cards that have a coin drawn on them. At the same time that the coins travel, the drawings travel one by one, until the 4 coins meet in one corner, and on it, the card with the 4 drawn coins.
Never tore and restored
After a transposition of two cards, you take yours and take a corner of it. The torn card and its piece are left on the table and their selection is passed to the spectator to cover. In a second, your card is restored, the spectator raises his hand, and his selection (which was intact) is missing a piece. As a final, he reveals the corner that was transformed and that now corresponds to his card.
Never Tore and Restored v2
Another version of the previous game, with a simple but powerful gimmick that you can do yourself in seconds. Same effect, easy to do and very visual.
The Last Trick of
A renewed version of the now classic "Last Trick of Jacob Daley", in which - first - a king in the spectator's hand, changes places with another king, then two black kings change places with the red ones, to end with the transformation of the four kings, into the four aces.
I play with two decks. From a mixed blue deck, the spectator thinks of a card (without force). Then in the red deck that is in the order from Ace to King and that the Magician never touched, the thought card appears predicted. As a grand finale, the blue deck from which the selection was originally thought, turns white in the spectator's hands, with the exception of the card that he had freely thought of.
In four groups of four black cards, a king appears in each group. Then the kings disappear one by one to reunite.
Assembly arrangement, in each pile a king. Each one of them is disappearing, to reunite in the same pile. A magical pass and the kings are back in their respective piles. As a finale, the group of indifferent cards becomes a royal flush.
Assembly to the Jacket
Four aces are left in four separate pockets, to later show that all four meet in one pocket. Then the aces disappear in the hands of the magician, and each one travels again to different pockets.
A drawing made on the back of a card chosen by a spectator, and that he is holding in his hands, disappears to reappear on the back of another card.
Transignature for Magicians
Same previous trick, with some details that could even fool some magicians.
Two cards signed in the backs. A magical pass and the signatures change places in an inexplicable and very visual way.
