My favourite piece of magic to perform for almost all situations is the "Homing Card" routine described in this volume (2). An offbeat, funny, killer ending card to pocket routine. Never fails to amaze even the most annoying hecklers. You should be buying this NOW! Oh yeh, I think I forgot to mention to other 300+ pages of meticulously detailed magic... BUY THE SET NOW!!

The Card College series is similar to books like "Modern Coin Magic" for coin workers, or "Royal Road to Card Magic" or "Expert Card Technique" for card guys...it's a MUST HAVE. The book is a staple in card magic that will not only give you a fantastic start into card magic, but will give you an excellent source of sleights and effects for years and years to come.

I bought the Card College series years ago, and even after making a successful living in magic for over a decade now I still benefit from the books. Everytime I flip through the books I find something new, or something I'd forgotten, or something that I'm now ready for that I wasn't before.

You simply must get these books. If you are even reading any reviews on these books just add them to card now. It's well worth it.

Best Card Reference I have ever seen Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 5th, 2018
Card College (V1-5) is just one of the many references I own in my magic library. However, it stands alone as the best reference of any I have ever seen. I started out in magic not able to do anything with cards. I couldn't shuffle, I couldn't spread the cards, and I certainly couldn't control the cards. Over the course of several years I worked my way through every page of this series on cards. As a result I have become extremely comfortable (and competent) performing card magic. The slights are explained, with excellent graphics, better than any other reference I own. The tricks are just fantastic. When I find tricks in other references that mention slights which I may not be familiar with or that I might be rusty performing, I just refer to card college for the explanation on the slight.

If anyone plans on doing card magic, this series may be the best reference on the market. Please note that if you are making an investment in one of these books, plan on buying all the books as you will want a complete reference. Each book focuses on different techniques.

Here we get into more advanced techniques, and you should spend much time on this material. Buy these books one at the time, as Darwin Ortiz writes! Card College volume 2 gives you a lot of material, most noteably the classic pass, palming techniques, false cuts and finally a real, practical double lift to use. The flourish section is essential, with the one handed shuffle and some coul turnover techniques to mention some. Good tricks include homing card plus and
Giobbis ambitious card routine.

Last but not least: the theory section is AMAZING! Man, this guy is so rich on knowledge, and so good on conveying it. Card college 2 is a must have, but buy volume 1 first ;)
