Here's a quick review of Paul Wilson's 10x10 magic course.
This free downlaod is a great introduction to essential sleights, controls and some classic card magic.
Paul Wilson's course will be sure to whet anyone's appetite looking for a starting place to learn some card magic.
Covers sleights such as the overhand shuffle control, the glide, the palm, the double lift and classic pass. Not only does. Paul Wilson demonstrate these sleights, with numerous tips on how to practice them, he performs some classic tricks which utilise these moves. Don't be fooled by how easy these tricks seem to perform, they really do pack a punch. For example if you can do a decent glide, you're ready to go and learn Design for Laughter, based on Charlie Miller's Dunberry Delusion, which has been performed by many magicians over the years in different forms. Everyone will ask you, how did you switch the cards at the end.
This is a great giveaway from Vanishing. It could easily be a paid for download!
Awesome content! I can't believe it was free... Even though I was familiar with all the techniques covered I learned some great tips about presentation and I added a few subtilities here and there in my repertoire. If you're a beginner and don't know a lot about card magic I highly recommand this download. Awesome Job by Paul Wilson!
It was great! I learned easy magic tricks and the pass!
Thoroughly enjoyed this download, great for learning the basics and easy to understand. Thank you!
Paul Wilson's masterclass on close up magic is recommended to anyone even someone experienced. He touches you a method and then demonstartes how you can use the method and present it professionally when doing a trick. One of his tricks I have done in front of colleagues as well. Plus you also get 10 tutorials so its well worth it.
10×10 Magic Course From Paul Wilson is a Master Class about Magic Cards for Magicians!
Absolutely brilliant!!!Very insightful!Someone who is learning sleights from the Card college books will see exactly how some of them can be used in a crystal clear manner!Loved it!
Very good. Excellent
Thanks for sharing Paul - You are an incredible card magician and teacher !!
Excellent selection of beginner, but very impactful card tricks. Difficulty increases gradually; from self-working tricks requiring a bit of math, to ones needing double lift, palming and the pass. Naturally, these techniques are explained and taught at a somewhat high level - due to time/scope, but still adequetly for the purpose of this collection.
Excellent! This course is great for both beginning level card magicians and expert level magicians, Paul Wilson goes over many tricks from self working card tricks to advanced card tricks that require a good amount of practice, some of the tricks here are really good, I really really recommend it.
Great introduction! The sleighs are the standard ones, which you can also read in books. But the video offers tips to make them feel natural, and present them as part of 10 great routines.
Even though many of the slights are known, the way they are explained and how they are used and presented in each trick helps beginner magician a become real pro. Practice practice, practice
I've been an observer of magic for many years, and now I'm diving in to learn how to do magic so I can entertain others. This was an awesome video that covers some great sleights and tricks without being overwhelming. I have his video series on the Royal Road to Card Magic, and I find his technique to be very helpful to the way I learn. This video will give me a great start and open the door to many more possibilities. Thank you!
Brand new to card magic. This introductory video was very helpful on some basic card handling and some tricks that are probably easy once I've practiced more. I appreciate the simple material because I'm finding even this a bit challenging being brand new. The discussion about how to make the tricks more interesting and successful and the discussion about the "why's" of the different card handling techniques were also very good. Thank you for putting this together!
It was very good! I learned many things that I had never seen before. I am very new to magic and have only been doing it for about 3 months. It was very well done and the content was wonderful. The instructor was very good at explaining and I understood everything very well. I have had a very good time watching this course. I have hands that are very small and I was wondering what other palms there are that can be used with any size hands. also I was wondering if there are any different passes that can be used with small hands. In the future will you be making any more courses that are free? I just joined SYM and I was unable to obtain the free e-books. I still am unable to obtain them do you know why. Also you should do a course on storytelling in magic and how to create your own stories.
As a newbie, I can’t recommend this video highly enough. Clear, concise and, most importantly, unhurried.
10 tricks introducing 10 different techniques.
Some of the examples require considerable practice but there’s plenty here to keep a novice going for some time.
If you’re new to card magic, watch this.
This is a brilliant set of ten short lessons. Each one contains teaching of an important basic skill and a trick that illustrates one way in which it can be used. Everything is explained very clearly, simply and expertly - and I know I will definitely return to this video a lot. It would help if the video was divided into chapters - but that's only minor thing - overall the quality of teaching and value of this video to a beginner in card magic is fantastic!
If you are new to the art of card magic, this is a great place to start. R. Paul Wilson is an amazing card magician, and an awesome teacher. He has a nice, calm, laid back style and a soothing voice that would entrance the listener even if he was reading a clothes dryer repair manual! The magic is first rate as well. He teaches several classic card magic effects that are Killers (see what I did there?)! Learn these effects from a master, and you have a mini-show in your pocket at all times!
Wow very good starter into card magic. Very recommended!
I'll give a quick review of Paul Wilson's 10x10 card magic lessons. I am not a magician or card master by any stretch of the imagination. But, Paul's clear and concise explanation of card effects has created the illusion of mastery on several occasions. The simple steps he presents and the progressive nature of the lessons helped me learn quickly that I CAN do magic. It has even inspired me to explore magic in greater depth.
Awesome and then some! Great job, Paul.
I wish I have had this course when I began. You can learn simple and effective tricks in an ascendent course that show how the magic work, not only with cards but all the whole philosophy behind. Paul is serious and barely jokes, but it is in the character of each one to add yout own personality. I have already added two easy automatic tricks from this course to my repertory, still studying some more.
One of the best downloads accessible on Vanishing.inc. Absolutely fantastic from start to finish!
Amazing video really liked it. Definitely worth it. Great for beginners and teaches some cool tricks and essential sleights. Also amazing because it is free. All you have to do is get an account with vanishing inc. A lot of these tricks come from a book about card tricks and sleights called the royal road to card magic (definitely recommend this too). Amazing video!
Wonderful introduction to Cardtechnik,
Very inspiring for own ideas that unfold while watching and stimulating to deal more intensively with cardmagic. Outstanding teacher. Thank you.
Awesome tips and information, but also very complicated. It's obvious it will take a lot more dedicated time practicing. More than some of the other card tricks I've seen. However, these are tricks that will WOW an audience.
Excellent tutorial I think Paul is one of the best magic tutor's around, in depth and sounds very patient, thanks Paul ??
The lectures are very informative and have given me the opportunity to work on creative additions to insert into my routine. I would have liked to have some of the props included along with the instructions to assist in getting right into the practice phase. Thank you the nice quality recording of the videos!

very well taught...brilliant!
This is very good. Lots of basic tricks and sleights are taught here such as the double lift, pass, palm, glide, etc. I highly recommend all beginners to buy this. You can get it for free and it's worth your time
I wish this had been the very first magic video I downloaded. Ten amazing tricks for a beginner like me, slowly and carefully taught by an excellent teacher, with great presentation ideas as well. I've paid for a number of downloads (often of similar tricks) that weren't half as good as what's taught here--and it was free, thanks to VI's promo. I'll be watching this one again and again.
The moves start out simple, though as Paul points out, these are the techniques you’ll need to know “if you want to go deeper into the rabbit hole.” Practice will be key here; even some of the simpler-looking maneuvers, like a riffle shuffle, take some work to look as smooth as Paul makes them look. Just as important, he focuses on the presentation of the tricks, to help budding magicians go beyond the actions taken for a trick to presenting something that really has a strong impact on spectators.
If you're just getting started and want some great tricks you can start using immediately, and want to learn some basic card moves, don't hesitate. This is the video you're looking for. Paul is a great teacher, the content is fantastic, and the production value here is excellent. Many thanks for the freebie, VI!
This is the best, most poetic intro course to handling cards I’ve ever seen. Scholarly and a pleasure to follow.
Paul Wilson's 10x10 magic course is fantastic and I'd highly recommend it.
It consists of 10 lessons - each one contains a skill (such as a shuffle, the double lift, the pass etc) and a trick that uses the skill. It starts off really simple and gets slightly more difficult each time.
The teaching is outstanding - slow, clear and patient. I particularly like the camera angle - so you see what you will see when you are doing it yourself.
If you are a beginner, you will probably need to go back and watch each lesson several times and spend a lot of time practicing each one before you are ready to present it, but the structure of the video in lessons means you can easily go back and do a bit at a time and have a new trick to use afterwards.
I've watched it all the way through and already knew many of the skills - but want to practice and improve them, so think rewatching and practicing is going to keep me busy for weeks, if not months!
