Caleb Wiles is a creative force in card magic. Known for his diabolical methods and engaging presentations, Caleb's magic is defined by efficient methods. With a minimum of sleights, these tricks achieve maximum impact.

This two-disc DVD set is jam-packed with the very best of Caleb's original material: both a "greatest hits" and a healthy helping of new and unpublished magic. Every single trick is a knockout. This is hard-hitting magic that you will use!

You'll learn Caleb's definitive, updated handling for his seminal "Reswindled" effect. The original routine is used by professionals worldwide. This new version adds a visual climax that makes it even better! Then there is the whimsical "All Signs Point to Yes" in which drawings on a playing card come to life to divine a selection...You will learn "Armchair Mindreading," a mentalism-style card effect that will stun even the most knowledgeable magicians ... and much more.

Trick List:

Travelers for Jack - For the first time, Caleb explains the highlight of his close-up show. This is one everybody will be talking about!
Reswindled 2.0 - A visual update to Caleb’s acclaimed Reset routine.
iDeck - A geeky card trick with a fun, commercial presentation and a kicker ending!
Replicator - A topical presentation for Hamman’s Signed Card effect with some outside interference from an odd-backed card.
Make a Wish… Again - A practical, birthday-themed card effect that is easy enough for the relative beginner but strong enough for the working pro.
Clue - An easy-to-do effect using a fascinating and rarely-seen card magic principle. Watch out for the curveball at the end!
All Signs Point to Yes - A playful premise for a visual routine that leaves the spectator with a wonderful souvenir. Joshua Jay calls this a “blockbuster practical effect.”
Semi-Automatic Luck Test - Your tag team partner shuffles the deck, then defies the odds by producing the Kings… AND the Aces!
Cross-Eyed Triumph - An explosive production of a named four-of-a-kind… and that’s only the beginning!
Armchair Mind Reading - This simple effect has fooled some of the best card guys in the world. It looks like real mind reading… and it’s completely self-working!
Lucky Shuffle - An always-ready-to-go closer where the method is as awesome as the effect. They’ll call you the Match-o Man after this one!
Elimin-ACE-ion - An over-the-top rope elimin-ACE-ion match mixing magic and mentalism.
Here-A-Move, There-A-Move, Everywhere-A-Move-Move - A finger-flinging eye-popper using four ungaffed Aces. Plus, Caleb teaches Elevation, a fantastic trick from Joshua Jay!
Paparazzi Pack - A self-working showpiece with run-ins from a huge cast of characters.
Little Fella Grows Up - A false dealing demonstration that does not require any false deals. Just call it the Royal Rumble Flush!

BONUS: Moves - As a bonus, Caleb teaches a host of moves, including his fantastically versatile false cut/control. Say goodbye to the double undercut forever.

Running Time: 3 hours 52 minutes
"Caleb Wiles is the real deal. His methods are devious, his presentations are clever and fun, and he's got loads of natural ability." David Williamson
“Caleb Wiles has the unparalleled ability to see the potential of principles and concepts that the rest of us may see as inert (or not see at all) and the result is just plain brilliant: Highly commercial card magic, never difficult or unwieldy, that will fool the pants off just about everybody! ‘The Knockout Magic Of Caleb Wiles” is his best collection yet.”Jack Carpenter
"If you're looking for magic that is easy to do, yet extremely deceptive, this DVD should be your first port of call! I am a big Caleb Wiles fan!"Andi Gladwin

I've been a fan of the card magic of Caleb Wiles for many years. This new collection is a joy to watch! Loaded with practical miracle after miracle which won't bust your knuckles either.

I have absolutely no hesitation in giving this my very highest recommendation to card magicians around the world!John Carey

Customer reviews for Main Event: The Knockout Magic of Caleb Wiles

VI Monthly


Very simple and expertly plotted. This will probably be most effective if you have a solid pinky count, but it's not crucial . Nothing groundbreaking in terms of the mechanics, but I really like the presentation! I suspect it's going to go over very well...



This DVD set is amazing! Plenty of workers! Card effects with minimal sleights... no knuckle busters. Caleb's teaching is great and DVD production quality is excellent.

I had "Clue" before purchasing the 2 DVD set and had fooled my wife badly with it. So I knew I would really like this DVD set.

The bonus section of "moves and sleights" is a big plus too. Caleb teaches the Elmsley count, Mercury card fold, and his "Crystal Cut" (a flashy alternative to the double under cut).



Phenomenal stuff



The tricks that are taught in this dvd are fantastic. I love the way Caleb’s mind works, the construction of these effects are super clever and very cool. I can see myself going back to this dvd often.

This is a great piece of teaching. The effects are really good, and the explanations are excellent. Mr. Whiles is a good thinker who takes what might be tricks that are already known and turns them into miracles.
While this might sound like hype, there really is not a bad trick in the entire two volume set. All are card tricks. Some are quick and can be used when the food shows up at the table. Others are longer and can be used when things are running late, or the kitchen is backed up. Of course, many of the pieces are modular and can be ended at several different points.
There are some great effects that leave the spectator with a nice souvenir (not just a signed card). “Make a Wish” may take a little extra time to set up, but I assure you that it will be a treasured object to the recipient. “All Signs Point to Yes” takes us back to the magic eight ball that we had as kids and reminds us that there really is magic in the world. “Little Fella Grows Up” is based on Harry Lorayne’s “Little Fella Big Fella” and is a demonstration of false dealing that will have the spectators believing that you can do anything with a deck.
The end of the DVD, where Mr. Wiles gives some tips on moves is good, but his cut/control will leave you never needing the double-undercut again.
All in all, this is a great set of DVDs that you will return to again and again. In a world where one trick downloads sell for twenty dollars, this collection of over 15 effects is a bargain.
Highly recommended!



amazing . best download i have ever purchased







More amazing card magic from vanish inc. You get Sixteen great downloads, plus one with credits, a good clean video production, with demos, and full tutotials, a good teacher, all well explained, It is worth the price of this just for the travellers for jack, as this is a big routine that has plenty of revealls, this even comes with a triumph routine, pus loads more great card magic.



This is soooo awesome! The tricks are so engaging, fun and commercial that this is an absolute must for any serious performer. The material is mind blowing!



Great, buy it now! Travellers for Jack is fantastic, great mileage for little work.



You can notice that Caleb works professionally with laypeople by watching this DVD. A lot of commercial magic, easy to intermediate level that will go directly to your repertoire. Caleb does a great work explaining each routine in full detail. For me Reswindled 2.0 and Travelers for Jack are outstanding, you will love them.



"I feel like I'm watching a "Greatest Card Tricks Ever" DVD! Every single effect is superb. Add just one of these routines to your set and you instantly become a more entertaining magician. So good!"- Jonathan Friedman



This is a fantastic product. It's very rare to find a mixture of material like this which is full of both magician-foolers and strong, practical real-world material. The routines are clever and entertaining and the material is both performed and taught extremely well. The production values are top-notch.

Some of my favorite routines on these DVDs include Replicator, Make a Wish... Again, All Signs Point to Yes, Armchair Mind Reading, and Lucky Shuffle. I was familiar with many of these before, but Caleb has added numerous new details and touches.

This has got to be one of the best card magic deals out there right now.



I'm just going to go ahead and say that if you are a magician, or have an interest in learning practical, powerful, commercial card magic for the real world, Caleb Wiles' new DVD is a required purchase. If you knew zero card tricks and today decided that a year from now you're going to start a career entertaining with card tricks, the material in this DVD is pretty much all you would need. He has done all the leg work for you and worked out all the kinks. Even the previously published tricks of his that I had avoided because of some small problems, he has since fixed and improved.
If you are a beginner or professional, you can save yourself a lot of time, money, and energy by making this one purchase.



Of the sixteen effects, I think AT LEAST five will go into my repertoire! A few favorites include:

- Reswindled 2.0
- iDeck
- Semi-Automatic Luck Test
- Armchair Mind Reading
- Lucky Shuffle

It's a long DVD (I got the download) but I'll return to it often!



Caleb Wiles' DVD is a masterclass -- almost four hours of content. It's extremely well shot, produced, and edited and the magic is very, very good. This gets my highest recommendation.



This may is the the best DVD I've purchased in a long time. I would have preferred it as a high-priced book so as to limit the audience a bit, but I'll take this.
In truth I've only seen about a third of it, but 'Travelers for Jack" was the first one I watched, and it made me very happy.
I've been a fan of Caleb's since High Spots came out. There some overlap here with that book, but....I'm still happy! ??
