Free Magic Trick. Bet-ya - Got-ya. #11

Here is the challenge: Lay out three coins as shown above. Make three moves. Each move must consist of turning over two coins at the same time. After the third move all coins must be tails up. Once you figure it out you will be able to do it and your spectator will not.

Here is the Solution:
When the magician starts the coins are set up A is heads, B is tails and C is heads. Move #1: Pick up B and C and turn over. Move #2: Turn over A and C. Move #3: Turn over B and C. All three will be tails up. When the spectator wants to try it turn the B coin heads up. He will not notice the difference yet the trick can not be done from this starting arrangement because the coins will all end up heads up. Enjoy.

Here are three FREE MAGIC TRICKS. They are easy to learn yet very baffling. One new trick will replace an already published trick at frequent intervals. Three tricks will always be on view.

Free Magic Trick #5. Telekinesis

Telekinesis pencil on book

EFFECT: Magician offers to demonstrate Telekinesis. He places a full length pencil on a book and mysteriously waves his hands over the pencil as he bends his head down and mumbles some magic phrases. The pencil starts to magically move without being touched.

METHOD: The pencil is placed so that it just balances on the edge of the book. When the Magician bends his head he secretly blows on the book on his side of the pencil, at the point marked "X", causing the pencil to move or rotate mysteriously.

Free Magic Trick #6. Levitation

Ring magically rises up wand


EFFECT: Magician borrows a wedding ring and slides it down over his wand. He leans toward the ring starring at it intently. He makes a magic gesture and the ring slowly rises up the wand. With another gesture the ring slides down the wand. He removes the ring and returns it to the spectator. The wand may be handed out for inspection.

METHOD: A piece of black sewing thread, about three feet long is attached to the top of the wand with Magician's Wax which is available at magic stores. You may tie it tightly on and glue it in place. Tie the other end to your belt or a lower button hole. Place the borrowed ring down over the wand and thread. Adjust the length of thread so that when you lean forward and pull your waist back the thread is pulled and the ring raises up the wand.If you use Magician's Wax you can secretly remove the wad of wax from the wand allowing you to hand it out for inspection. Click on Magic Wands above for wands, or you can make one out of plastic tubing, a jumbo pencil or other smooth rod.


Free Magic Trick #7, Coin Vanish

Coin Vanish at Elbow

Effect: Magician states that he can make a coin vanish merely by rubbing it on his elbow. The first two times he tries he fails. But open the third time vanishes into thin air. He then reproduces it from his ear (or some other unlikely place).

Method: The magician borrows a coin from a spectator, taking it with his right hand. He places the coin in his left hand. He places his right elbow on the table and rests his chin on his right fist. As he starts to rub the coin on his elbow he pretends to drop it on the table. He picks it up with his right hand and places it in his left. He again starts to rub his elbow and drops the coin. He picks up the coin with his right hand and pretends to put it in his left. Actually he secretly keeps it in his right hand. He again rubs the pretend coin on his right elbow but his time he takes his left hand away and the coin appears to have vanished. He then pretends to take the coin out of his ear.

Here's a Free bonus Card Trick and its Solution submitted by Magician, Gregory Topov

The deck is split into two halves (towers), both of which may be shuffled by the spectator. The spectator selects a card from either pile (his free choice!), and replaces it *anywhere* (his free choice!) into the other pile which he immediately shuffles. The magician finds the selected card even
after the spectator has shuffled the pile thoroughly!

Pre-arrange the deck by separating the cards into two piles of black cards & red cards. Place these two piles on top of each other to make one complete deck. Pre-arrange the deck ahead of time - don't let anyone see you do this!

1. Casually split the deck in half, creating two face-down piles (towers), one of the red cards, the other of the black cards.
2. Let the spectator freely choose one tower, and select any card from this pile. Do this by fanning out the cards face down, and have him touch a card, which he takes and remembers.
3. Have the spectator insert his selected card anywhere into the *other* tower.
4. Look through the tower containing the spectator's card. The only different colored card in the pile is the selected card!
5. Produce the chosen card with your favorite revelation. A simple method is to place the card on the table face down, and turn it over after the spectator names his card.

Free Tricks: Effect #3. The Hard and Fast Way to Find a Card.

EFFECT: The Magician has a card selected and states he will turn his back as the spectator looks at it and shows the other spectators. This is to prove their is no way for him to know the card. When he faces front again he places the card in the center of the deck and squares up the sides. He states he will find the card the "hard way". He places the deck behind his back and almost immediately brings it forward again as he says, "Not only have I found your card the hard way, but I have found it, that fast!". He asks the spectator to name his card, then spreads the deck to reveal all of the cards are face down except for one, which is the selected card.

Free Tricks: Effect #4. Mind Reading.

Effect: Magician offers to prove that it is really possible to read someone's mind. He asks a spectator to name a number between 10 and 20. The spectator does so and names, let us say "15". The Magician then demonstrates exactly what he wants the spectator to do. He takes a deck of cards and counts out 15 cards in a neat pile on the table, then looks at the top card. He then reassembles the deck and hands it to the spectator asking that he deal out 15 cards exactly as he demonstrated, look at the top card and remember it. The Magician points out that he has proceeded in this manner to be certain that the spectator has been in control all the way. He then asks the spectator to concentrate on the card. To picture it in his mind. The Magician first reads the color of the card. Then the suit and finally the name of the card.

Free Tricks: Effect #5. The Playing Card Detective.

Effect: The Magician states that he has a Magic, Playing Card which acts as a Detective. Further that it can find any "criminal card" that might be hiding in the deck. He has a card selected and states that it will be considered the "criminal card". To make the police work harder the Magician cuts the deck and asks the spectator to do the same. He then spreads out the deck to reveal one card is face up. It is the Five of Hearts which is NOT the "criminal card". The Magician states that the Five of Hearts is the "Playing Card Detective" and it will find the criminal. He counts back five cards and turns the card over. It is the selected "Criminal Card".

Free Tricks: Effect #6. The Three Card Prediction

Effect: The Magician asks the spectator to cut the deck into three piles of cards. He then holds his right hand about six inches above the first pile and with some mental effort names the card on the top of the pile, say the Six on Clubs. He picks up the card in his left hand and then holds his right hand over the top of the second pile. He again names the card. Let's say the Jack of Spades. He repeats the motions and names the last card, let's say the Ten of Diamonds. The magician then lays the cards down one at a time on the top of each pile and they are indeed the Six of Clubs, the Jack of Spades and the Ten of Diamonds. He has predicted all three cards.
