Double backer card trick

Double backer card trick DEFAULT

If you’ve ever purchased a pack of premium playing cards (in other words, not Bicycle or Bee), you might have noticed something.

Your deck may have included a double backer card.

Simply put, these are special cards that have no face — only the deck’s back design on each side — while remaining the same size and thickness as a single playing card.

What should you do with these special gimmick cards? What are the best tricks using double backers?

Below, I’ll describe a few principles you can use to design your own double backer effects, and refer you to a couple of excellent routines you can learn or buy that use double backers.

(P.S. You can buy an entire deck of double backer Bicycle cards from Amazon to practice these effects and have plenty of souvenirs to give out.)


Principles

One of the best things you can do with your double backer cards is to design your own routines and effects.

The possibilities are limitless!

To get started, it helps to understand a few of the ways you can use double-backed cards — though the list below barely scratches the surface of what they’re capable of.

Hidden Reversal

If you place a double backer in the middle of the deck, you’ll notice something interesting.

Spread through the cards from the back and nothing seems out of place. The deck can be displayed completely normal.

Spread through the faces and you’ll see one card seemingly reversed in the middle (your gimmicked card).

This is an interesting principle you can play with.

For example, you could create a paradox type of effect where you show one card reversed in the middle of the deck from the beginning of the effect, before the spectator even chooses a card.

Have them choose and sign one, then show that the reversed card in the middle was their signed selection the entire time!

(There are tons of ways you could handle this effect. That’s just an idea to get your creative juices flowing!)


Double Lifts

If you have a deck with a double backer in front of you, try this:

Place the double backer on top, then perform a double lift.

See what happens?

The card that was second from the top is now floating freely face up on top of the deck and can be cleanly shown as the top card.

(In a normal double lift, you would see the other card’s face below it. But here you only see a back.)

This is a powerful principle that can be used in a number of ways.

In fact, the trick that fooled the legendary Houdini used a double backer. Dai Vernon fairly placed a card second from the top (similar to his Tilt depth illusion) and then instantly showed that same card to be on top of the deck.

The illusion created by the double backer baffled Houdini.

Some people like to incorporate this idea into their Ambitious Card Routine.

It can even be done in reverse. Place the selected card face-up on top of the double backer and perform a double turnover.

It looks like you’ve simply turned the selected card face down, but now the double backer is on top and can be placed in the middle of the deck or some other location for a magnificent transposition effect.


Merge Effects & Souvenirs

It’s popular among magicians to use double backer cards as magical souvenirs for their participants and audience members.

You’ll see examples of this below, but there are lots of easy effects you can create where two cards merge into one — leaving a really cool keepsake for your spectators.


Tricks & Effects Using Double Backers

Now let’s get into some of the actual effects you can buy and learn.

You can always design your own tricks with double backers, but the pros have already done a lot of the heavy lifting for you if you just want to get right into performing!

Here are 3 of my favorites:

Autograph by Justin Miller

Autograph is a special handling of the classic Anniversary Waltz effect (a tremendous routine in its own right that will appear in my guide to using double facer cards soon!)

A participant chooses a card from the deck and the magician signs and dates the back of it. Another participant chooses another card and places his own signature and date on the back of his selection.

Magically, the two signatures change places while the cards are in full sight. Then, for the finale, the two cards fuse into one with both signatures on the same card.

You can grab the DVD instructions for Autograph here.


Satisfaction Guaranteed by Daniel Garcia

An “All Backs” routine on steroids.

Break open a brand new deck of cards and show that it’s been misprinted… the back design is on both sides with no faces to be found!

Regardless, the spectator chooses a card (all-backs as it may be) and then watches as their selected card is used to reprint the deck in front of their eyes.

You have to see this one in action to get the full effect, and you can learn it from the Daniel Garcia Project DVD.


Outsider by Jay Sankey

Jay Sankey is a master of simplicity and elegance, and this quick, visual effect is no exception.

A participant chooses a card from a deck that’s shown to be entirely red.

It’s placed fairly back in the deck and in an instant, the entire deck turns blue except for the red, chosen “Outsider” card.

It’s an easy to handle, brilliant twist on the color changing deck.

Learn it on Sankey’s Best Card Magic DVD.


Hyper-Bent-Elation by Daryl

If you like Card Warp, you’ll love this mind-bending piece of magic from the master, Daryl.

Two Jokers with different back designs are handed out for inspection and are signed by audience members.

The cards are then cut with scissors, folded, and twisted together — sending them “through the 4th dimension” in Daryl’s words. When they’re finally untangled, one card has both back designs and the other has both Joker faces — with signatures completely intact!

Watch the man himself, Daryl, perform this fooler in the clip above.

Hyper-Bent-Elation is hard to find these days, but you might be able to grab a copy from MagicWorld.


Wrapping Up

Don’t just throw those double backers away!

You can make your own or buy them on Amazon for standard decks, but you should definitely keep the ones that come with special decks from Theory11, Ellusionist, and more.

You can do some truly impossible-seeming effects with these gimmicks, and they’re incredibly easy to hide in plain sight. In some cases, using a double backer combined with traditional sleight of hand can create stunning results.

What’s your favorite way to use double backers?

Hello,

Can anyone suggest a favorite trick with a double backed or same both side card? A couple of deck I bought come with such a card and I have no idea what to do with it. Thanks.

In Andi Gladwin's labor of love, "Jack Parker's 52 Memories", his Double-Back Trilogy is a 3-part routine with a double backer. I highly recommend this wonderful book, and this routine is a highlight.

There's something I'm remembering - magician places a card face down at the beginning of the trick and asks the spectator to freely name any card. In the end another card is used to turn over the face down card on the table and it is shown to be the card that was freely named by the spectator at the beginning of the trick, so you get a 1 in 52 prediction. Tamariz has something like this on the mnemonica video - maybe someone remembers the name? The same principle is used in a three card monte but can't remember if it requires a DB or a DF

Great tips, thanks so much. I found one from Yoann of Magical Sleight France called 9ueens--uses a 9 backed with a queen. I'm amazed at how few I can find using a single card. As I recall Bro Hamman may have one.

A 9 backed with a queen. So are you looking for tricks with a double facer rather than a double backer? And with two different faces or with the same face on both sides?

Interestingly, Harapan Ong addresses this in Principia. Noting that many custom decks come with two identical jokers, a blank card and a double backer, he devised three routines that use just these four cards. He also has tricks with double backers and double facers, and even supplies most of the necessary gaff cards. Dan Harlan's A Little R&B is all about red/blue double backers. Liam Montier's Gaff-Tacular is a bunch of packet tricks with gaff cards including use of a double backer. My aforementioned 52 Memories book has at least one trick with a double facer and a double backer.

Note that a classic use of a double backer is to perform a DL and then push off the top card without revealing another face-up card underneath.

I second the selection of Muldoon's Match. It's a great effect! Especially if you "ring in" the double after using the same deck for other tricks. A great demonstration of "Woman's Intuition".

Richard Kaufman in his book "Cardworks" has a few tricks which use a double backer. He actually gives it to the spectator to examine, but it's somehow justified by the trick.

Ever wondered what you can do using the double backer (DB) card that comes with most decks today? This original effect by me shows just that. Using a DB you can transform two cards into one card right in front of your spectators.  

It will captivate and enthral your audience and leave them wanting more.

A DB is a card with a backing design on both sides of the card.. This version is the same design on both sides.. Bicycle create these gimmick cards and you can buy them at most respectable magic shops.

So you have a DB and want to learn a great effect with it. So we nipped over to White Arts Magic and he has produced a fabulous trick you can learn today. 

If you would like to discover more information, please checkout his facebook page and like it to learn more great tricks and illusions from this talented man.

Let us get into the trick below and set ourselves in position with our DB card on top of the deck and ready to learn the method and performance of the white art magic trick he created himself.

The Double Backer Card Trick recap

This trick involves using the double lift.

It is a very elegant trick where the spectator will see two cards become one.. one thing to develop in the future may be to force the king and queen of hearts onto the spectators especially if they are a couple.

The set up is quite easy with the double back card on top of the deck and the two selected cards (KH/QH) placed on the top. Follow the patter from White Art Magic closely as you will not find a better performance of this trick.

Remember to practice a trick until you can perform it perfectly before you show the lay people of the world.

We believe in filming ourselves or performing it in front of a mirror so we can see for ourselves how we look when we perform a particular trick.  If you have a friend who is interested in magic, let them watch you and give you positive feedback and criticism.

Backer trick double card

Trick deck

A trick deck usually refers to a deck of playing cards that has been altered in some way to allow magicians to perform certain card tricks where sleight of hand would be too difficult or impractical.

Trick decks[edit]

Stripper deck[edit]

Not to be confused with a stripped deck which is a standard deck with some cards removed.

A stripper deck (also known as a tapered deck, wizard deck, or biseauté deck) allows the magician to control the main location of a card or group of cards easily within the pack. Even after being shuffled into the deck by a spectator, the magician can cut to a selected card. Similarly, even after being lost in different parts of the deck, the magician can move multiple cards to specific locations using basic shuffles.[citation needed]

Unlike the invisible or svengali deck, the stripper deck can be handled by an audience member unfamiliar with the concept and can withstand a modest amount of scrutiny without exposing the secret; however, this deck is found in a number of beginners' magic kits, so the secret is well-known, even among non-magicians.[1]

The cards of a stripper deck are slightly tapered, so that the sides no longer form a perfect rectangle. The change is slight enough to be undetected by visual inspection or even casual handling, but if a single card is rotated ° so that it's tapered in the opposite direction from the rest of the deck, the card's broad end can easily be detected, by feel or even by sight, among the narrow ends of the rest of the deck. At this point the magician can select the target card through sleight of hand.[2]

Many of the effects achieved with a stripper deck can also be accomplished with sleight of hand.

Svengali deck[edit]

Operation of a Svengali deck

Upper figure: Riffling the deck from front (top) to back (bottom) exposes the normal cards (black)

Lower figure:Riffling the deck from back to front exposes the shorter cards (red)

The deck alternates between normal cards and shortened cards, with the shortened cards all of the same rank and suit. When the deck is riffled front to back, only the normal cards are visible; when it is riffled back to front, only the shortened cards are visible.[3] It was created by Burling Hull [4] and marketed by WD LeRoy in

The deck can be dribbled or riffled to create the illusion that the deck is completely ordinary. It can even be shuffled. One basic trick involves a spectator choosing a card from the deck and returning it; the card can then appear practically anywhere in the deck, making tricks like the Ambitious card incredibly simple. The final and most stunning trick is when all the cards are suddenly presented as being all the same as the initially chosen card.

Joe Stuthard's Trilby and Bi-Co Trilby Decks are variations on this deck. In the s and s, Marshall Brodien sold 17 million Svengali decks under the name TV Magic Cards. While the Svengali Deck allows for the easy performance of seemingly complex tricks, the conjurer cannot allow an audience member to examine the deck. The use of a Svengali Deck can also be detected by its characteristic faster riffle and sound. Finally, because the deck is widely sold in joke and novelty shops, many laypeople are familiar with it.[5][6]

Writing pads or books using the same principle have also been created, to force the spectator to choose the content of a seemingly random page.[7]

Marked deck[edit]

A marked deck uses a marking system on the back of the cards to indicate their suit and value, so that a magician can identify a card without seeing its face. The two main methods used for creating a marked deck are reader systems, which hide the suit and value in the back design, or coded systems, where the suit and value is indicated by a code, e.g. a mark might be placed in a certain position to indicate the number of the card, with the color or shape of the mark indicating suit.[8] Many marked decks are produced commercially, while some are created using card marking techniques similar to those used to cheat at gambling, e.g. by adding tiny punctures or dots. Some magicians may even mark a card during a performance, either with a sharpened finger nail or a tool (often a ring known as a "poker ring") made specifically for that purpose.[9]

Forcing decks[edit]

These decks are used to force a spectator to select a particular card, which the magician already knows in advance. Such a feat can be accomplished using a regular deck and sleight of hand but with the aid of a forcing deck the trick is made self-working.

One of the simplest forcing decks is the "one-way forcing deck", where all cards are identical (with the possible exception of one or two at the top and bottom of the deck). When using this deck, the magician must be careful to prevent the spectator from seeing the faces of the cards. The above-mentioned Svengali Deck can also be easily used as a force deck, by forcing the choice of one of the twenty-six identical short cards.[1]

A variant of the one-way forcing deck is the Monte Cristo deck invented by Henry Hardin, more recently published under the name Mastermind Deck by Chris Kenworthey. All the cards are the identical force card, but misindexed on the top left corner, so that the cards all appear to be different when fanned or spread. Any card can be selected, and rotating the deck before revealing the selection will always reveal the force card.[10]

It is worth noting that such decks have fallen out of favor amongst professional magicians because of an increased suspicion amongst audiences regarding the use of gimmick props. Thus, they are rarely employed.[citation needed]

Rising card deck[edit]

With a rising card deck, the spectator chooses a card and puts it back in the deck of cards. Then, the chosen card magically rises, whether it is in the box, in the hands, on a surface, or even in a wine glass.

The construction of these decks varies. The simplest of these, often described in amateur magic books, involves cutting a hole in the back of the carton so that the performer can surreptitiously push up the top card with their finger. More complex arrangements include a pair of cards gimmicked with an elastic band onto which the target card can be pushed (between the gimmicked pair), or a deck with a fine black thread passed across the top onto which the target card can be pressed down. There are without a doubt more complex and clever arrangements in use.[11][12]

Invisible deck[edit]

The invisible deck is one of the best known card tricks. Joe Berg created the Invisible Deck in the s, originally calling it the Ultra Mental Deck. Often mistakenly credited to Dai Vernon, Don Alan or Eddie Fields, the most-used presentation of an "invisible" deck of cards was invented by J.B. Bobo.

The trick's title stems from the classic presentation of this effect, in which the magician hands the spectator an imaginary, or "invisible" deck. On being handed the deck, the spectator is asked to mime the acts of removing the cards from their case, shuffling them, spreading them face-up on the table, freely selecting a card, replacing it face-down among the other face-up cards, and returning the deck to its box.

At this point, either the spectator keeps the imaginary deck while the magician removes the real deck from his pocket, or the spectator hands the imaginary deck to the magician, which suddenly becomes real in the magician's hands. Michael Close also uses a handling in which the invisible deck is tossed back into a paper bag, whereupon it becomes real and visible.[13] The magician then asks the spectator to name the card they selected, removes the deck, face-up, from its box and spreads the cards to show one face-down card. The spectator removes the card to find it is the one they named moments earlier.

In the more comedic version of the routine, more focus will be drawn to the part of the effect where the spectator is handling the cards. Often, the magician might criticize the spectator's card-handling abilities, or remind him or her to take the cards out of the case before trying to shuffle them.

A more serious routine can be performed, which focuses more on the magician's mindreading abilities and the fact that the spectator had a completely free choice of card. The magician could hand the spectator a box of cards to hold, ask him or her to think of, and concentrate on, any card in the deck, and then to name it. The spectator then hands the box back to the magician and the trick completed as before.

The invisible deck is prepared by arranging a normal deck so that all the even cards face one way and the odd cards the other. Cards are then slightly glued or stuck together into even-odd pairs, face out. When the spectator names his or her card, the deck is extracted from the box with the chosen parity, even or odd, facing the magician. The magician then fans out the cards until he see the spectator's, which will be facing him. Applying a small amount of pressure, the card is split from its opposite member, revealing the back of the card for the spectator to see and choose.[14]

The deck can be bought from magic dealers. It is also possible to construct the deck using a regular deck and additional materials from department stores.[14][15]

Brainwave deck[edit]

This is a lesser-known deck which is gaining in popularity, it operates on a principle similar to that of the Invisible Deck, but has vastly improved on it. With the cards still in their box, the magician asks a spectator to name a card. The magician pulls the deck out and fans the cards face down, then spreads through the deck until a single face-up card is discovered, which turns out to be the spectator's card. For the grand finale the magician explains that he or she actually knew ahead of time which card the spectator would select, rather than having secretly turned it over during the performance. He or she then proceeds to prove this by turning the spectator's card over and revealing that the card in question features a different backing pattern than every other card in the deck, suggesting to the audience that the magician may possess powers of extrasensory perception.

An inverse handling of the Brainwave deck is the X Deck, originally invented by Jay Sankey and identical to the Invisible Deck, but with the odd cards having an X on them. Both decks are meant to convey the idea that the magician did not perform the intended effect through the use of sleight of hand.

Non-standard decks[edit]

The following are not trick decks per se, but the cards they contain may be combined with a normal deck (or a packet of cards from a regular deck) in order to perform specific tricks.

Gaff deck[edit]

A gaff deck is a deck that contains cards used in conjunction with a normal deck. For the most part gaffed cards the same back pattern as a standard deck of cards, but the faces are changed in various unique ways; for example, there may be two "3½ of clubs" cards, which might be used to split a 7 of clubs into two cards if called for. Gaff cards are sometimes included as bonus cards with a regular deck.

Blank deck[edit]

A blank deck has the standard backs (all identical) but lacks faces. That is, there are no values such as 5 of hearts on any of the cards.

Double blank deck[edit]

All cards are completely blank on both sides.

Double faced deck[edit]

All cards have faces on both sides.

Double back deck[edit]

All cards have the standard backs on both sides.

Standard deck setups[edit]

There are many ways to order a deck so that the magician can perform special tricks. It is possible to use a stack, or ordered deck, to determine what card the spectator cut to. A popular stack to use for this is a Si Stebbins Stack. To make one, all a magician needs to do is order the cards so that each card is three values greater than the previous card, and so that the suits cycle consistently. For example: A♣, 4♥, 7♠, 10♦, K♣, 3♥, etc. The simplest way to use a Si Stebbins Stack is to let the spectator cut and replace the cards and look at the top card. They then replace the card on top and the magician takes the deck and peeks at the bottom card. Now, using the sequence of the Si Stebbins Stack, the magician adds three to the card value they peeked, and cycles one suit. Now they can continue the trick as usual. The Si Stebbins Stack also allows for more complex mind reading techniques using additional mathematical principles.[16]
