Card magic tricks can be an excellent choice for the first trick you perform for your spectators. The first magic trick is often called an ‘opener’ by magicians.
The card magic tricks to use as openers need to have several important qualities:
- The card magic tricks need to be fast.
- They need to be visual and easy to understand.
- The card magic tricks must be stunning to get peoples attention.
- They should be easy to perform, so nothing can go wrong.
- The card magic tricks should set a strong and consistent tone for the act.

Great Card Magic Trick Openers:
A deck of bicycle playing cards that allows you to perform a wide variety of magic card tricks to your spectators.
Imagine having an invisible deck of playing cards become a visible deck and proving it by also having the freely selected invisible playing card instantly become visible as well. With the invisible deck you can get a spectator to call up a friend who somehow names the one playing card you have turned over in the bicycle deck prior to the call. There are many, many other uses.
It’s been said that the Ambitious Card may be the most magical thing you can perform with a deck of cards, and with this DVD and the classic routines and performers it offers, you’ll never be at a loss for yet another way to make the spectator’s card come to the top of the deck as if by magic.
Approach anyone complete stranger and have a card selected, marked and then shuffled fully into the deck of cards. Next, you simply make a series of random marks on the back of any indifferent playing card. Those marks VISIBLY JUMP from card to card, finally VANISHING COMPLETELY. The cards are slowly spread to show the marks on the back of one card… It’s the spectator’s signed selection. ANOTHER impossible kicker… You offer the card to the spectator to keep. But to make it unique to them… You just give the card a shake… THE MARKS ON THE BACK OF THE CARD MAGICALLY AND VISUALLY FUSE INTO THE SPECTATOR’S VERY OWN NAME!
