One of the best classics of all time but now renewed, we are talking about the legendary “Card Stabbing”. This act has everything we want in a routine: comedy, challenge, audience participation, strong magic and hitchcockian tension. From a shuffled deck five cards are freely selected, noted and lost in the deck, one spectator blindfolds the magician and shuffles the cards, the magician without seeing anything one by one stabs the five chosen cards. This new lateral method will allow the SPECTATOR to SHUFFLE the cards on the table while you are BLINDFOLDED and even after the chaotic shuffle you will find the five selections in the most dramatic possible way. This is a whole act ideal for any magician, cardician and even mentalist. Iñaki will teach you all the important points, details and tips that the professional experience taught him. This DVD explains very clearly how to make the gimmick in a very easy way that will allow you to control all the selections even after the SPECTATOR SHUFFLES THE DECK. The “Card Stab” made the reputation of great magicians like Max Malini, The Great Tomsoni, Bob Sheets, and now can make yours!

The Little Things :
On Volume 1 you will get:
Through: An easy to make gimmick that will allow you to pass any object that will fit into a folded bank note, through it. Clean direct and simple. And if you really want to, you can borrow the bank note!
Pulled 2.0: Over 8 years ago Alan released a linking ring pull effect. The only issue with it was the way you made the gimmick. You needed an extra something BUT NOW this issue is solved. You will be able to make these gimmicks in the field with nothing but your bare hands and in less than 2 seconds. Then you will be able to link ANYTHING that will fit in to the ring pull, to the ring pull. Again, simple clean and direct magic.
Cardexx: This is Alan’s solution to the card to pocket/wallet. With this super simple and super cheap gimmick you will be able to do a NO PALM CARD TO WALLET style effect. Using a Kleenex pockets! Treated right this gimmick will last you a life time, it will let you load anything that will fit into the slot and you can even place it in the spectators hand when It is loaded and they will never suspect a thing!
W.Y.L.F.W.T: Every magician loves the McDonald’s aces. But Alan wanted to add a little extra. Imagine being able to do the standard McDonald’s aces with minimal work. One easy to learn sleight in fact. But then have it back fire and have every Card move back to its original pile/hand. With this easy to make gimmick which there is a PDF included to do so, you will be able to do the aforementioned and so much more
These truly are the little things that kill and have been pet effects/hidden gems of Alan’s for years. Now these hard hitting pieces of strange are in your hands to have fun with.
On this DVD there is also a few hidden little secrets… Some are obvious and some are hidden well. Will you find them all? We will give you a little hint. The music is like that for a reason!
