We come to the first lesson of Card tricks and it's an eclectic assortment to say the least.

There are many card tricks in the world of magic, but the critical factor that keeps them interesting is variety in presentation and plot.

In this lesson, you'll learn a few unusual tricks that you can use to spice up your routines.

There's a strange card revelation where the selected card seems to escape from the deck and melt through the box... all while it's bound tightly to your hand.

Then, Dan takes an overly-complicated trick and condense it into a direct miracle which makes use of a simple home-made modification. You can add to any card box which allows you to learn the identity of any card hidden inside.

Next, is a physically, and psychologically, impossible trick where a thought-of card vanishes only to be discovered to be the card you placed in your pocket at the very beginning.

And finally, Dan will show you how to use a very simple and subtle move to create an unbelievable transposition that's super-easy to do.

So, grab a deck of cards and let's get started learning some Effective Card Mysteries.

Trick Listing
- The Rising Card Escape
- Sealed Card Mystery
- A Psychological Impossibility
- The Hindu Color Changing Deck

I wish I could write a more generic review for the whole series, but these videos are masterful. If I was just getting into magic then after purchasing a kiddie magic kit to get in on the cheap I'd immediately recommend this series along with the original Tarbell book.

Why the original Tarbell book, too? Well... it's got a lot more than just magic in it. It has history... it has motivation... it explains that there's more to being a magician that just performing a few tricks. That's more important than many realize.

Why this series alongside it? The Tarbell book is outdated. We're past the age of cigars and handkerchiefs. Furthermore, Dan does a GREAT job updating the tricks... demonstrating the tricks... explaining the tricks... AND explaining where to get the extras from (such as in the video on rope tricks). I look forward to Fridays for more than just the weekend now :-)

One thing I do wish is that these videos were prepped with timing marks to delineate the different tricks so I could more easily jump back and forth, but that's a relatively minor consideration. This series has basically made me, a rank amateur with some aspirations, decide to get back to the basics and work my way through the Tarbell course to create a better foundation on which to perform magic.

I am really enjoying this series! I have dabbled in magic since I was a child mostly simple coin effects and easy slight of hand. Last summer, my two kids were bitten by the magic but after a visit to a local magic and costume shop. This series is now our weekly Friday night movie. We watch, on Friday, and then practice over the weekend! It has been a blast! Thanks you Penguin and Dan Harlan for your continued inspiration!

Only four tricks, but ones you can use in any venue. Very well taught. This series isn't only about the tricks from the volumes but it also updates the presentation and slights used which also will help in improving entertainment skills.

Trick 1 is a rising card. I saw the pictures in the Tarbell book and I thought it was stupid. Seeing Dan Harlan perform it, I've changed my mind. It could be a fun flourish to a card reveal.

Tricks 2 and 3 are find-a-cards that are long and require a lot from the spectator. They are based on solid principles which could inspire more direct tricks.

Trick 4, well, look at the name. It involves an unnatural move that I would never use in today's world.

As always Dan Harlan is an excellent teacher. He modernizes and improves upon the original tricks. The production values are also top notch.

Basic but useful Report this review

Basic but useful. This is Card Magic 101, but still necessary to know.
Use this to build more complex effects.

Forgot to explain some parts Report this review

The video was well made and explained each trick well. The only reason for the 4 stars is due to the fact that there was 2-3 instances throughout the video where Dan explains the trick and says he will show a method or something later. To my surprise, the video ended before he did show. Otherwise, nice flow and good tricks

Great but not outstanding. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 29th, 2014
Dan is a great teacher. He's a great performer and he has a nice charm and a good sense of humor. His instructions are direct, to the point and I really like how he modified the methods to make them easier and less complex.

However it is slightly short, but there is a lot of content within the lesson. The material is very interesting but be informed this is for beginners. The methods and concepts will be familiar to the you if you have some knowledge of card magic. I downloaded the lesson expecting to find original, unheard of new tricks and presentations, however You will probably recognize all of these tricks and principles in play. I knew all of the sleights and I have seen all of the tricks before. Therefore I kind feel a tad bit disappointed having spent 10 bucks on it.

For beginners this would be great. But for those familiar with the glide, the hindu color change, you probably have seen these tricks in some form.

Great for beginners, entertaining, but for intermediate magicians it's nothing that you don't already know. I would recommend buying Tarbell's book instead of all of these individual lessons. of course it is much easier to learn by video prior to reading from a book.

GREAT, BUT ONLY FOR BEGINNERS. Otherwise it's nothing new and not worth the ten dollar pricetag.
