21. The Rising Ring
23. Cold as Ice
24. The Clipped Card
In the The Clipped Card you show a spectator five cards and ask them to remember the position of the middle card (queen). You turn around the five cards and ask the spectator to clip the middle card (queen) using a paper clip. Most spectators will clip the middle card. But when you turn the cards around, you show that their paper clip is nowhere near the queen. It's a fun exercise in perception and can act as an introduction to a card trick or an effect where you explain the difference between illusion and reality.
26. Vanishing a Coin
27. Dark Magic
Dark Magic is a great trick, a bit of apparent mind reading, to perform at a party. You ask someone to select an item while you're out of the room, tell everyone else which item was selected and leave it in place. When you return, another person goes from object to object touching them in a random order. When the person touches the chosen object, you're able to tell everyone that this is the selected object.
If you're seated at a dinner table, here are some easy magic tricks that rely on items that are nearby. You can bend a spoon, make a coin vanish, encourage a knife to pass through a napkin, cause a knife to appear to stick to your hand just as if it were magnetic and more. All of these easy magic tricks are simple to learn and perform once you know the secret and are great for kids and beginners. And best of all, most are impromptu - there's no preparation.
