  • Tons of Free Magic Tricks - Weekly Recap

    Posted on June 27, 2014 by Chris Ballinger

    *Please note: The time to enter the Mystery Box Giveaway has expired. Thanks for playing.

    This week we didn't have a topic, so instead I mostly spoke about the Mystery Box Giveaway that we are doing all weekend long.

    Enter the drawing by using the coupon code "mbox" this coupon code will get you 5% off your entire order and get your name into the running for one of the four huge mystery boxes.

    Some of the items in the boxes include a rare, signed and numbered Kartis Okito Coin Box (only 100 exist), signed posters, Multiplying Bottles, Velocity DVD, Topsy Turvy Bottles, Extractor Version 2, Collapsible Top Hat, Professional Close-Up Case and much much more. This is quality, usable magic we're talking about here.

    There are also 20 consolation prize grab bags that you could win. Each bag is filled with a free trick, booklet and magic DVD. These bags make your chances of winning some free magic even better!

    You can enter you name as many times as you'd like. Use the coupon code on multiple orders and get your name into the running for each completed order with the applied coupon.

    But hurry, people are already placing their orders and this offer ends on Monday, June 30th at 11:59pm. At that time the coupon code will expire and the entries will be closed. Then we'll tabulate all of the names and post a drawing video early on Thursday the 3rd.

    You know what would be a great way to get your name into the running? Buying Pyro Kinesis. (See what I did there? That awesome segway into the next topic? I knew you'd appreciate it.) Anyway, Pyro Kinesis is a fantastic effect where an entire matchbook ignites and becomes a giant ball of flame.

    If you want to get people's attention, Pyro Kinesis is a great way to go.

  • Card Ninja

    Posted on June 6, 2014 by Chris Ballinger

    There are a few demonstrations that can make you look like a card master. You could find the aces, you could do a false shuffle and retain the deck in new-pack order, you could do a flourish; but nothing--NOTHING is as dramatic and visual as throwing cards like an expert. Throwing a card for distance, hitting a target or cutting vegetables in half demands the audience's attention and respect.

    Lucky for you, the best instructional DVD on card throwing has come out. And it is taught by the current Guinness World Record holder for distance and accuracy in card throwing. I'm talking about Velocity, the most comprehensive collection of technique and advice on card throwing every compiled.

    Rick Smith Jr. goes through all of the techniques that he has developed for distance, accuracy and drama. You'll learn different grips, body positioning, and how to look like a pro when throwing cards. He even goes through all of his techniques for using this new skill in your show. He touches on building a crowd, creating drama, jokes and staging your card throwing.

    I can tell you that my personal card throwing skills insanely improved within the first few minutes of watching the DVD. The skill of card throwing takes practice and time, but the improvements that you will see in yourself right from the beginning are very satisfying.

    To pair with this excellent DVD, we now offer the Banshees, which is a deck that was developed specifically for card throwing. The Banshees are a plastic stock deck with a target design on one side which will allow you to gauge how deep into a target your card drives itself. This is great for practicing because this will let you see how quickly your cards are rotating and how fast your card is travelling through the air.

    The Plastic stock helps the card stand up to the damage that comes to standard cards with throwing. It's impossible to get accuracy with a card that has bent or split from impact, the Banshees won't bend or split on impact so they can be used again and again.

    But the coolest modification made to the Banshees are the whistle cuts made into the cards. Each card is precision-cut with four holes and cause the card to whistle as it is thrown. If you've watched the video earlier in this post, you will have heard the whistle... kind of. We had a really hard time capturing the sound with our microphones. It is louder when you hear it live, but the video does give you and idea of what an audience will hear.
