The Finger Knows All Tutorial

Posted by howtochangefate in Tutorial , Street Magic , Mentalism , General , CloseUp , Card


This is a nice little physic card trick that really depends on your showmanship to help sell this effect. Whenever you do a physic trick you should really sell the idea that you have physic abilities 

The Effect: 

The magician pulls out 5 cards from the deck. The cards are the ace,2,3,4 and 5 of any suits they could be all the same or all different it doesn't matter. Lay them down on a table in order. The magician asks the spectator to mentally think of 1 of the cards and not to tell them. The magician then asks the spectator to hold out his dominant hand. The magician tells the spectator that the thumb represents the ace, index finger 2, middle finger 3 and so on. The magician tells the spectator to concentrate on the finger that their card represents. The magician lightly taps the tip of the spectators fingers with the tip of their index finger. The magician can then correctly predict the selected card.

Marketing for Magicians

Posted by howtochangefate in Misc , Magician , General


Now not every magician wants to get money for what they do. But some do. How to get yourself booked in clubs or anywhere really is quite simple. Show some people who work there some tricks and when your done say something like 

" Do you know who i can speak to about hiring me to do some shows here." then hopefully they should go and find someone for you. After every show i have a piece of cardboard that has got a large version of my business card then i flip it over on the other side it says tips please. I have a friend with me who acts like their not with me when i do a show who runs and puts a five pound note or ten.

How to lift a bottle just by using a paper straw

Posted by franklin in General , CloseUp , Bar Tricks


This is not a fool-proof puzzle. You have to put your faith in an untested paper straw. I recommend that you only do this trick over a soft surface so that there is no damage if it doesn't work.

Show your friends an empty bottle and a paper straw. Stand the bottle on the table and then ask if anyone can lift the bottle from the table without touching it with anything except the straw. And it is against your rules (well, this is your puzzle!) to tie the poor defenseless straw round the neck of the bottle.

A few over-confident people may try, then you show them that it is really easy. Well, it is really easy indeed!

Prop Bet: Up and Away

Posted by andrewjspeirs in General , Bar Tricks


The Game:

It's can't be done" you exclaim. This is sure to get your marks attention. "There is no way it can be done." after saying this a few times the question of what the heck you are talking about is sure to come up. You can't pick up a shot of whiskey without spilling a drop. Your mark is sure to think he can, and the challenge starts. The whiskey is poured, and you go over the rules. You can't spill a drop, I won't push you or anything like that. They will of course say okay. Well why don't you put your money where your mouth is, a bet is made. Who could say no, it sounds so easy.

Grampy's Magic Inspiring Story

Posted by Grampys Magic in General

Grampys Magic

Hello All....

I'm a GrandPa with 10 grand children, hence the name.....

I've always been fascinated by magic since I was 5 years old, when I saw my first show at a VFW hall in Kalamazoo, Mich.  Growing up I read every book I could find on the subject.  Around 10 years old or so I discovered Harry Houdini and he became my hero.  Again I read everything I could find on him and his magic.  I did my first public performance at age 12 for a senior citizens club my dad used to deliver bakery goods to.   My next performance, along with a few friends was for our 8th grade talent show at school.
