Pop-Out Hamburger
By Eleazar Goodenough

This is NOT the version performed by Cyril Takayama. This is Eleazar's own original method of pulling a real hamburger from a laminated menu picture of it, followed by some delicious french fries. Blank spaces remain where the food was. The hamburger is returned to the menu (with a bite taken out of the photo) and the menu is then handed to a spectator to choose one of the delicious deserts on the back. The chosen desert then is pulled from the menu and given to the spectator as a treat.

Dragon Potions
By Magicbob

The wizard shows four cards, each depicting a different colored potion bottle. Each time the cards are shown, a different bottle appears empty. All of the cards change into “spell books” and then, for the shocking finale, the cards are turned over and the potion bottles have been replaced with four different colored dragons!

Santa's Magic Chimney
By Jim Gerrish and the Wiz Kids

It's never too early to begin getting ready for Christmas! This hand-held hardboard effect from Jim Gerrish and the Wiz Kids is a perfect lead-in to a production of Santa's Gifts or the actual appearance of Santa Claus (not included!).

Pompom Critters

The lowly Pompom (buy them by the bag!) acquires a personality and a life all its own as you teach it to crawl around your body and up and down a magic wand! Then it finds a mate and the two of them immediately produce two more Critters, this time of different colors. All four Critters hang by their tails from your wand and you can do the Pompom Pole Trick with them if you wish. As a grand finale, you put them back in their cage and they suddenly begin to multiply faster than the Tribbles from Star Trek! This and other flexible routines for your Critters will be explained in the article.

Winning at Blackjack
by Magicbob

The magician tells a story about how he used the rules of Blackjack to find a gambler's card. The spectator is given the role of the gambler and believes he has caught the magician out, when the cards suddenly change and give the magician a perfect Blackjack hand.

Includes a FREE BONUS EFFECT: “Sudden Death Blackjack.” This Blackjack-themed variation of Dr. Daley’s Last Trick ends in a startling transformation that occurs in the spectator’s hands.

Womanicure
by Professor Spellbinder

This is the first in a series of effects designed specifically for women magicians. I hope women enjoy them and actually use them. Male magicians might consider teaching these effects to their female magic partners to augment any magical act. The INFO button explains this first effect of color-changing fingernails and matching color-changing lipstick.

Run, Whatever, Run!
by Jim Gerrish

YOU decide who is on the run and why! The prop is easy enough to build so you can make several and change your theme with the seasons or the occasions. Once again, I will use the coyote and the bird so this trick can be used as a follow-up to the previous tricks from Book 1 of my Hardboard & Duct Tape Magic Show.

Signed Card to Sealed Deck
by Professor Spellbinder

Ordinarily, I hate card tricks. I haven't let that stop me from creating a few, but to get me interested enough in working on it, it has to be really special. This one, that I published in 1999, is.

Briefly, a spectator chooses a card from a red-backed deck, signs it on the face, you do some Ambitious Cards (instructions from Jean Hugard included), then the card disappears from the deck. You toss a sealed blue-backed deck on the table. The spectator opens the deck, spreads out the blue-backed cards face down and finds her red-backed signed card hidden in the center, right in the exact order it belongs. If you have to do a card trick, do a real knockout, I always say.

Winning at Poker
by Magicbob

This is a sequel of sorts to my previous gambling-themed effect, Winning at Blackjack, above. This effect not only provides equal time for Poker, I’ve “upped the ante” by transforming not just one card, but an entire hand (worthy of folding) into a Royal Flush.

Eisenheim's Ghost
By Jim Gerrish

Ever since watching the movie “The Illusionist,” I was intrigued by the challenge of producing a spirit as suggested by the movie, a half body resting on a table. I am calling my result after the name of the principal character in that movie, The Illusionist himself, Eisenheim.

Building a Better Nest
A Magical History Lesson By Professor Spellbinder

Louis Nikola on The Nest of Boxes (1934):"Some of the oldest tricks have a lasting fascination. There are many that have never been seen by the rising generation that in time will bear revival. The one in which a missing object appears within the innermost of a succession of boxes was always a source of delight; and with a nest of large size, that as the stack grows, towers above the performer himself, may become hilarious, besides providing a good, sound mystery."

I couldn't have said it better myself, so I didn't. This is a journey through magic history examining various methods of tricks which end up with an object being produced from some kind of nesting containers.
