Humans Beware!

This just in! Magically enhanced ants are on the loose and are attacking card tricks everywhere. No one is safe! This can only be described as an all-out Anttack!

Imagine a card being selected. The spectator's favorite food being drawn on the card. The card lost in the deck, only to be found later with ants printed all over its back. With a shake, the printed ants fall off the card and into the third dimension. Plastic ants shower from the card into the spectator's hands! Shocking! Magical! Anty!


A year after the release of the very-popular instant download Anttack, we are proud to present an all-new version of the effect. The updated routine includes new gimmicks, super-easy-to-do routines and fully-illustrated instruction booklet. We've even included the instructions to the original routine.

When developing this, I took the original concept and tried to figure out a way to make it easier to perform, self-contained, and extremely fair. What I ended up with is a new set of gimmicks that satisfy those goals far beyond my expectations. Your hands can be shown empty the entire time and the gimmicks make the sleight of hand practically self-working.

I have been using this version of Anttack all summer and it goes over extremely well at company picnics and restaurant gigs. People love food so it’s great to incorporate it into a card trick and when the ants come off of the card, it’s a huge surprise. Anttack also generates a lot of word-of-mouth advertizing. The spectator ends up with a souvenir card and I always overhear them describing the ants falling off into their hands.

Anttack is scheduled to hit most magic stores soon, but there there's only one place you can get it right now; and that's right here at Magic Geek.
