Harapan Ong has finally cracked the code to a problem plaguing countless magicians...

As magicians, we love playing cards. With 1,000s of different decks of cards available, some of us have amassed quite a collection of custom playing cards. Often these decks replace the Jokers and advertising cards with special gimmick cards. Yet, for the most part, don't give you much insight on how to use them.

With The Four Treasures, Harapan Ong (the brilliant mind behind Principia) teaches you how to turn these overlooked gaffs into powerful tools for your everyday repertoire.

An expert card magician, Harapan has identified the double-backer, double-index card and two different double-faced cards as the most versatile gimmicked cards. He carries them in every deck of cards and now is ready to share his knowledge with you.

The Four Treasures features four incredible effects. Each one uses exactly one of these treasures. This means that, as long as you have at least one of these four playing cards in your case, you'll be able to perform a card magic miracle.

Get Ready to Learn:

  • An easy two-card transpo that will catch even the most clever magicians off guard
  • How to make a signed selection disappear from a spectator's open palm and reappear in your pocket
  • A brilliant packet trick with a stunning imbalanced transposition finale
  • A powerful sandwich routine with two selections and a kicker ending that will have your audiences baffled (Harapan's personal favorite routine in the book)

Every routine in The Four Treasures is described in great detail and accompanied by more than 90 stunning, color photographs. To make learning even easier, you'll also receive a link to a full video performance of every trick.

So, grab your copy of The Four Treasures now and get ready to learn some killer card magic that you can, and will, want to carry with you everywhere!

NOTE: This book comes with Red Bicycle Rider Back Playing Card Gaffs. However, the effects can be performed with similar gaffs from any deck.


Customer reviews for The Four Treasures



After reading Principia (a must have book for card workers), I bought this book without needing to know a thing about it because I knew it was another homerun of a book and I was right. It's a small book, no doubt. Just four effects but all four effects are awesome. I was grinning ear to ear while I was reading and practicing them. If I can read a book and come away with four effects that I'll be using regularly, I feel pretty good and that's the case with The Four Treasures.
Everything I've read of Harapan Ong's is so clever. Hey plus, it comes with gimmicked cards too.



This little book of Treasures is a long overdue addition to our craft. We all are familiar with the treasures in this book. But, few of us utilize their potential. Now, learn from the best. Add this one to your magic library.



Damn, this is good. The whole package. The approach, the layout, the effects, the teaching. It's all gold. The book even has a link to watch bare bones performances of each effect so you know what it's supposed to look like. I'm just blown away. Are the effects difficult? Depends on who you but there is nothing unobtainable if you aren't a master with a deck. There isn't any self working stuff here so you will need to know your basics but nothing crazy. Just buy it.

If you like principia, you should like this. It doesn't have as many effects as principia (only 4 routines), but three of the 4 are real good, and the other is solid. If you can do a double lift anda gamblers cop, you should be able to do most of the effects. The difficulty is not near the level of principia. All the effects have a high visual component, which is a high priority I place on my magic. So considering the price versus value, I would say the $30 price is about right.
