Lots of exciting things are happening at Magicbob Productions.

SHIMMED AND CHOP CARDS

The shimmed and magnetic (chop) cards that I’ve offered here from time to time are now available on the website. Every card is hand-made. My cards are very thin and have the flexibility and “snap” of a normal card. My prices are also lower than many mass produced cards, which often consist of two cards glued together with a razor blade or similar object between them (causing the card to be really thick and rigid).

LOWER PRICES!

The next item of news is one that I KNOW everyone is going to be happy to hear… prices have been lowered on all of my printed books and complete e-books. Purchasing a complete e-book saves you the most (now a 50% savings over purchasing the effects individually).

REVISED EDITION OF “I HATE CARD TRICKS” 2

Over the past few months, I’ve been hard at work on the third installation of the “I Hate Card Tricks” series. In the course of developing effects for this new book, I couldn’t escape a feeling that has nagged me since the release of “I STILL Hate Card Tricks”. Namely, I strayed from the concept of recreating “stage illusions” with cards and included a variety of other unique packet tricks for the second half of the book. In retrospect, those effects (while certainly worthwhile in their own right) seemed out of place to me in this particular book, especially as I developed more illusions that were a better fit for the series.

So, after much deliberation, I’ve decided to discontinue “I STILL Hate Card Tricks” and replace it with The “I Hate Card Tricks” Book of Card Tricks, Volume 2. This new edition (as well as Volume 3, which is coming soon!) contains only effects that are in keeping with the “stage illusion” theme.

The remaining packet tricks that used to comprise the second part of the book will still be available individually. They will also appear along with a host of new packet tricks in Sleightly Wacky Packets, which is coming online now. This collection of unique, off-beat, humorous (and occasionally just flat-out wacky) packet tricks will serve as a much better “home” for those effects orphaned by the restructuring of the “I Hate Card Tricks” series.

HAVE IT YOUR WAY!

All of my books are available in print as well as in .pdf e-book format. Individual effects are also available as e-books and many are available ready-made with all cards/props.

The I Hate Card Tricks are fantastic, and I have several of the kid tricks, which are also creative and fun. Check these out . . . Pulver knows his "non-card trick" card tricks!

Thanks for the kind words. I'm working diligently on finishing up "Sleightly Wacky Packets" and then Vol 3 of "I Hate Card Tricks" will be my next project. I've got about half of the effects for Vol 3 developed, but I won't start writing them up until I finish the current project.

o Backstage Pass
o Princess Kard-nac
