Wild’s creative markings are easy to read and user-friendly.  The marks are hidden in plain sight – you just have to know where to look because they are invisible to the uninitiated.   

The deck comes complete with Wild’s instructions about using the deck.  He also gives you several routines plus some tips and suggestions.  The perfect professional deck, but easy enough for beginners.

Tony Clark's In and Out ROPE ESCAPE  - $25.00

Best professional rope escape ever!  No thumbs required!  The ingenious handling of the rope is he secret.  Offered online for $28.50 to $47.76.

This routine is great for stage or parlor. Two volunteers tie your wrists together with a piece of rope (provided with this DVD) but you can escape in seconds.  The DVD gives you easy, step-by-step instructions and presentation tips. 

BUT THAT’S NOT ALL….  You also get Tony’s exciting routine “Knife Thru Coat”.  The audience will be blown away when you stab a large knife right through a coat that belongs to one of the volunteers who tied you up.  Not to worry – the coat is not damaged in any way. 


I love Tony and I love this routine – done by another magician.  It’s just not my style, but I know you’ll love it.  Scott

The set includes all-time most popular films such as  Gone With the Wind, The Godfather, Star Wars, The Wizard of Oz, and Pulp Fiction.

They read the names of the films from their card, and you tell them exactly which film they are thinking of. In addition, you tell them the exact number of film critics who voted for that film out of all films. Repeat the effect with someone else, again and again. You always know which film your spectator is thinking of and the unique number of votes it got.

Max Maven’s POCKET NIGHTMARE - $20.00

New in the box. Offered online for $39.95


The performer informs the audience that he will perform an effect with only one hand to make sure that everyone knows that sleight of hand is impossible. The performer places one hand in his pocket. The spectator peeks at a card in the deck. The magician then is able to divine the card that the spectator is only thinking of. The deck is then given to the spectator who is invited to search the deck for the card only to discover that it has completely vanished. The magician reminds the audience he said he would do the trick with only one hand, but he didn’t specify which hand – he then removes his other hand -- holding the vanished card.

Taught in detail by Max Maven, including a complete history of the effect, Pocket Nightmare is ready to go right out of the box. This effect is devastating to an audience, especially because the gimmicks do all the work for you while hiding in plain sight. This is powerful magic from a legendary creator. Pocket Nightmare is nothing less than a thing of terrifying beauty.
