Hey guys, I haven't learned a good card trick for a while and would like to, so I was wondering if you could give me some suggestions

Buy a copy of Royal Road to Card Magic, or one of the volumes of Card College you will find plenty to choose from there.

Mark Wilson's Complete Course in Magic or any of the Tarbells...both loaded with fantastic stuff you'll use for years. In fact the Tarbell series is just about mandatory in my mind for a serious student. Buy them, you'll be glad you did.
Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk. That'll teach you to keep your mouth shut.

You say you haven't learned one "in a while." That tells me you have some background or other--how comfortable are you with a deck of cards?


Last night, I dreamed I ate the world's largest marshmallow. When I woke up, the pillow was gone.

Are you looking for self working or sleight of hand type tricks?

Get hold of Michael Ammars 9 volume DVD series 'Easy to Master Card Miracles'... that should keep you going. Either that, or get hold of any of John Bannon's books.

I agree with jimhlou. Get an invisible deck, and you may want to check out Jay Sankey's DVD "Invisible", great routines and ideas on using this deck.

Learn the basic slights of card magic. These become your tools of the trade. The more tools you know how to use correctly, the easier it becomes to use the ones you need to "build" any routine.

I agree that you should pursue the Easy To Master Card Miracles set. Varied tricks from packet effects to poker routines no stone left unturned and Mr. Ammar is an excellent teacher and I believe my hero, Mr. Paul Harris had some input on the set as well.
