My Favorite Card Tricks & Routines

Here’s a complete guide to the best (and all of my favorite) card tricks.

If you’re looking to learn card magic or add to your repertoire, this is a good place to start!

What you’ll find on this page:

  • Explanations of famous card tricks, where to learn them & performance tips
  • Curated lists of tricks and routines (impromptu, self-working, etc.)

What you won’t find: Quick reveals of magic tricks from TV or celebrity magicians. This is a learning resource (at least, it aspires to be!) and not the place to find out how something is done just to satisfy curiosity.
