Good day friends. My name is Jason I am 42 years old and I am a magic rookie. I grew up loving to play poker and fell in love with magic when I read Harry Houdini's biography when I was in middle school. Although I never practiced I loved watching it and really appreciated the craftsmanship that great magicians have and the effect they can have on people of all ages. About a month ago I was in a local costume store and they had some small magic tricks and some decks of cards and I bought some marked cards and started playing with it and next thing you know I have The Royal Road to Card Magic, Expert at the card table, and Expert Technique along with some coin magic books. I have defintely caught the magic bug. I am really interested in close up magic with cards and coins. I know I am probably not the norm as most of you have probably been doing this since you were a young lad but hopefully an old dog can learn new tricks and old tricks for that matter. Smile Well I look forward to chatting some of you up for advice and possibly some critiquing.

Welcome 42yo_Magic_Abecedarian,

And welcome to Magic.

The local Magic Shop where I live (Grand Illusions) is also a costume shop. I know that some of the costume clients are turned towards the Magic side because Steve Johnson and his parents have a positive and guiding way with curious potential Magicians. I'm glad to hear you had such an experience.

I would caution you about poker and marked cards. LOL Way more dangerous than Magic tricks.

Hi Jason,
Welcome to the Magic Café forum. You are closer to the norm than you think. Many adults rookie magicians learning card magic using Royal Road.
