Edward asks: Hi, I am new to card Magic, a complete novice, only spent the last few weeks just handling the cards, I have just started with the Royal Road to Card Magic yesterday, do you think these tricks will be suitable for me please.
Thank You in advance
- 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: Hi Eddie, good question. Short answer, yes. All the tricks have been specially selected so give as strong an impact as possible with no sleight of hand at all. So whilst you work on your overhand shuffle controls from Royal Road, you can put some of these into your repertoire which will let you entirely concentrate on performance and not worry at all about any sleights.

Customer reviews for Super Strong Super Simple
These videos really are fantastic. That being said, it's value depends on your knowledge of card magic. I would say that the LESS you know the better these videos are. Most of these effects are modern classics or use very common principles. Review the effect list before purchase and if you are unfamiliar with several of them, this video will reward you with some really world class (and yes simple) card magic- taught in a very clear and easy to learn way.
Exactly as described! These are some REALLY simple card routines that don't sacrifice impact for simplicity. Ryan is a fantastic teacher as well.
What a great deal. Couldn’t be more happy with what I got. With only 4 of the amazing tricks included on this DVD, you already made your money worthy.
This is fantastic! There are practically no 'moves'. Many of these are done in the spectator's hands, which always makes for more impressive magic, even if the tricks aren't 'hard' to do. Audience management is the biggest thing you have to handle. I am a hobbyist, have many card trick DVDs already, but will use 4-5 of these tricks easily, if not a few more. Magically delicious!!
I only looked at the first 2 tricks, but the first one, All Expenses Paid, is quite good. It is one I will be doing, even though I don't do a lot of card tricks. It is a self-working way to do cards across (done last year by Jonathan Burns with cheese instead of cards on Penn and Teller) without the magician ever touching the deck. Clear teaching style. If I get any more tricks that I would use from this large collection, that will be a bonus.
It was my very first download item here at Vanishing and I am very satisfied. Nothing but good things here to say. First the website user experience is friendly, second the content of this video is top notch. You will really get easy to perform and self working cards trick. Just because there was prior commitment and shuffle bored (Simon aronson) I bought this. But trust me there is much more. Ryan Schultz is clear and seems a nice guy...Can't recommend enough this video to anyone else who like clear, smooth and strong magic.

Every magician should have this DVD. Period. At LEAST 3 of these effects are going straight into my repertoire. Ryan’s particular nuances on the performances and handlings are worth the price of the DVD alone. Note for working magicians: combine this DVD with memdeck work and a solid cull and you will be unstoppable!
Received this for “free” during the Cyber Monday special. That being said, this DVD is of terrific value. Bath Towel Mentalism (my favorite), Prior Commitment, 4 Sided Gemini, Shuffle-Bored, Silent Transmission, and Six Covers Six were the standouts for me. I tend to think I’m pretty picky too. If you’re not familiar with many of the contained tricks and are looking for some self-working/close to self-working tricks, I think it’d be hard to go wrong purchasing this. The worst thing about the download (not sure if it pertains to the DVD) is that sometimes it’ll look rather pixelated. Tried with multiple video players with the same result. Might need to re-download? Another annoyance is the lack of chapter markers in the download. Overall, would recommend this if quite new to the self-working genre, but would go with the DVD if possible to give yourself the best viewing experience.
This is fantastic. I was looking for something to help me get started and build a skill set and this does exactly what it says on the tin. If you want to get started in card magic this is for you.
5 stars plus.
Definitely a 'must buy' for beginners and experts alike.
Amazingly easy to perform effects from the incredible magical mind of Ryan Schlutz from Orlando.
The words easy/simple/cheap do NOT mean these effects would fail to entertain and fool real people and magicians alike. The almost 3 hour download is incredible and very reasonably priced. I think too many magicians unnecessarily learn hundreds of card tricks and are constantly looking for that 'holy grail' of card tricks, which will fool all magicians. Forget that thought. These effects are all winners from one of the kindest, friendliest, most helpful person in magic today.
This Ss Ss comess with two download videos, which is the main tutorial video, and the other includes tips on how to handle the deck such as pinky bteaks etc, this tutorial is on my top list for easy to do, and fun card tricks, three hours of play time in total, demonstrations, explanations, and handaling tips included.This is an amazing tutorial, some great twists to past famous card tricks included, all you need is a deck of cards a couple of double backers which you will need for two of the tricks, and a few blank face cards, and the rest of the tricks all you need is a borrowed deck, that's all you need, a great video production, easy to watch, easy to follow, easy to do, something for everyone, very enjoyable tricks. Great for beginners too.
these are absolutely brilliant, I have only watched 4 so far but I have managed to do all 4, I am a complete novice and was struggling with a lot of the sleights, I know it takes practice, but, I just wanted something I could do confidently to feel like I'm getting somewhere. And this has got it in Spades!!! I am so looking forward to the rest, Ryan Schlutz is brilliant at explaining every move, will be looking for more from him, so glad I got this
Definitely download this video. This combined with 10x10 with R Paul Wilson are a perfect set for a beginner or intermediate magician. You don’t need be have a lot of technical skill to perform these tricks but for a more advanced magician there still some killer material that you can use. A great deal and almost 3 hour video, 15 bucks was a steal.
One of the best curriculum for this specific room within that humungous ever growing room of Card Magic.
Wide variety of great pieces.
Classics, unique plots and dependable repertoire.
But remember the simplest rick in the hands of an artist can be a major miracle!
Really a good one to get.
Can't recommend it highly enough.
Thanks Ryan for doing all of this work for us!
This is a great item. Love it.
This download was my introduction to the magic of Ryan Schlutz. All I can say is wow! Great selection of easy to do card tricks. Since getting this I have purchased other of Ryan's effects. Buy this if you're just starting out or even if you are comfortable with intermediate sleights. Lots of useful and baffling tricks!
Like most things done by Ryan, this is absolutely brillant.
It's clear, accessible but still very strong. So the title is actually very accurate.
Very good material and effects. This is definitively worth my money.
Great selection of excellent, easy card tricks, with an ordinary deck. One or two use a gaff card or two. A real value.
