NICK TROST WAS A MASTER IN CREATING AMAZING TRICKS AND ROUTINES BASED ON SUBTLETIES RATHER THAN DIFFICULT SLEIGHT OF HAND. HERE YOU HAVE THE FIRST OF A DVD SET BASED ON THE CARD MAGIC OF NICK TROST. A HUMBLE TRIBUTE TO A VERY CREATIVE MAGICIAN. All the tricks are performed with a regular deck of cards.
ACE STOP: Here is a quick, easy method of locating the four Aces in a magical manner!
AMBITIOUS DEUCE SANDWICH: A selected card is buried in the deck only to jump to the top and land between the two red Deuces. This happens THREE times!
TEN-IN-A-ROW DOUBLE COINCIDENCE: This trick represents Trost at his best-and we think his best is hard to beat. The name says it all!
ROYAL RENDEZVOUS: This routine with court cards packs a three-way punch and there is no sleight of hand involved!
TRIUMPH ACE OPENER: The deck is cut and the two halves shuffled together, one face up and one face down. The deck is ribbon spread and all the cards are face down except the four Aces!
THE TELEPHONE NUMBER TRICK: This is a very simple method for performing the revelation of a spectator's telephone number with cards!
THE OMEGA BET-UPDATED: A match or no match bet with cards with several climaxes; the last one occurs after a spectator shuffles the deck. Great routine!
MULTIPLYING KINGS: Four Kings and a selection. The cards are counted three times: the first time there are five; the second time, six; and the third time, seven. Then there are eight face-up Kings. The cards are counted again and they are just the four Kings. The selection appears face up in the middle of the deck. Fun to watch and fun to do!
ACE TO FIVE: You show the AS to 5S. The AS is placed second from the top of the packet and it rises to the top. You repeat with the 2S, 3S and 4S. The 5S changes to the 5H!
MENTAL FINGERTIPS: You hand the deck to a spectator and turn your back. The spectator removes a few cards. A second spectator selects a card at random. The deck is dropped into your pocket. You remove two cards: The total corresponds to the number of cards removed by the first spectator. For the second climax, you remove from the pocket the mate of the other spectator's selection!
Running Time: Approximately 46 mins
A SIMPLE COINCIDENCE: A spectator selects a card. You spread the deck to reveal a face-up Ten in the center. The spectator's card is the other red Ten!
THE NINES FIRST: A card is selected. A second card is chosen and both turn out to be Nines.. A packet of cards contains exactly nine cards and the last card is a Nine and this card finds the other Nine!
A PUZZLING ASSEMBLY: Using the court cards, the spectators separate the four Jacks, the Queens and the Kings!
THE TWENTY-TWENTY PREDICTION: A series of amazing coincidences where the number 20 takes a very important place!
THE LUCKY ROYAL FLUSH: The spectator cuts the deck into piles. He locates the four Aces. The piles are turned face up and you reveal the Royal Flush in Spades!
THE TROST FOUR-ACE ROUTINE: A three-phase routine using the four Aces, where all the Aces, at the end, are turned face up in the middle of the face-down deck!
PREDICTING RED, BLACK AND COURTS: You lay four predictions on the table. A spectator shuffles the deck. The predictions are correct revealing the number of red cards, black cards and court cards. You won't believe it until you do it!
THE AMBITIOUS JACKS: This is a three-phase routine where the Jacks reveal themselves as ambitious cards and always assemble to the top of the deck!

THE MAGNETIC ACES: Two freely selected cards are used to find the four Aces!
SORCERER'S SEVENS: Using only the low cards, a spectator selects four cards; surprisingly these turn out to be all Sevens. He then inserts two of the Sevens face up in the middle of the packet. The face-down cards above and below each seven are shown to total seven. No other adjacent cards total seven!
FIFTEEN CARD MYSTERY: A card is chosen and three packets of 5 cards each are dealt. The selection moves from one packet to another, disappears and reappears face up in the middle of the packet!
CARDS OF COINCIDENCE: A startling matching effect. Four selected cards match your predictions and then you reveal the four Aces!
ANOTHER OIL AND QUEENS: Four Kings and four Queens are alternated. Two Kings and two Queens are placed on the table. The in-hand packet changes to four Queens, while the tabled packet changes to four Aces. Then the four Queens change to Kings!
FOUR OF A KIND: A spectator selects a card (say a red King) and then another one: The other red King. One of the Kings is inserted into the deck and finds the two black Kings!
