Good evening folks!

So I've been away from magic almost entirely for a year. Give or take a few months....

In the world of cards (and maybe mental magic for magicians?), what interesting stuff have a missed? Is there something new and exciting that's come out? Did somebody really spice up an old favorite of yours? A special new card book or a devastating new packet trick?

I know there's a TON of list threads on here, but I'm eager to get back up to speed!

Many great books including ones exclusively on card magic were published in 2011. Check out the book review section.

Something called the UCCU came out, pretty mindblowing.

I'm not sure when exactly this book has been released, but if you haven't checked Woody Aragon's book, "A Book In English", get it.

Prob about 20 torn n restored, a dozen 100 dollar bill switches, and stackfulls of one effect DVDS...most of the mentioned are either inferior to the ones before or impractical...however, some of Blue crowns stuff (Ben Train) and the UCCU are worth checking out.

Ricky Jay did a lecture tour of every major city in the US and Can... Smile dang it, I knew I couldn't keep a straight face the whole way through.

Thanks Billy!

There's no reason to limit your search to recent things. Just jump back in and buy whatever books, dvds, and props you find exciting!

Thanks for all the responses. And of course, Ben, there are always a lot of neat older things out there yet to be discovered. Still many "wants" among those Smile

I agree that Ben's Blue Crowns DVD looks interesting for sure! I love assemblies (as weird and parlor-roomy as they are to laymen) and triumph is a wonderful thing. I did the super easy Zarrow triumph for some friend tonight (KILLED). I will say that I've never been able to master Vernon's triumph shuffle, so I'm guessing that Ben's won't be any easier. :-/

I think you'd be pleasantly surprised.
What do we want?
A cure for tourettes!
When do we want it?

It's easier.

(The Myth also uses a zarrow shuffle, which you're already using, so there's a very small learning curve)

Aragon's Book in English and Barnowsky's Book of Destiny are two great reads

Take a look at Derek DelGaudio's work on Youtube. He had a 5-episode stint on a Spanish show that was a lot of fun, if you like in-depth card routines.

Very cool stuff. Most of it seems like Lennart Green top shelf dealing and controls! This one made a lot of sense to me, as it's a classic, but I couldn't figure out how he got past the "praying" step. Maybe I'm just falling into some kind of topological trap!
