Magic Card Tricks & Sleights

Learn Card Tricks Online For Free

Thanks for peeking at our collection of magic card trick tutorials, card sleights, flourishes and other nifty things you can do with a deck of cards.

Many are easy to learn, and most require nothing more than a regular deck of playing cards and a bit of practice.

If you are completely new to magic card tricks (or magic in general), I suggest you check out our Handy guide to sleight of hand.

Except for self-working card tricks based on math, most card tricks employ "sleight of hand" to create illusions - card palming and peeking being some of the most common sleights.
