PDF – Magi Card System by Oscar Hugo


A great introduction to advanced memorized-deck magic.


At the time of its publication, advertisements for this very rare book proclaimed it a “thousand-dollar production” that built on the work of more than sixty master magicians. Almost eighty years later, Magi Card System remains a superb investment for anyone with an interest in magic with a memorized deck. Oscar Hugo begins with a cleverly structured (and stack-independent) method for committing the positions of fifty-two stacked cards to memory, before explaining a host of routines that use the Magi system to produce such varied effects as poker deals, a thought-of card to pocket, ace productions, and selection locations. Along the way, Hugo describes a number of useful moves and resources including false shuffles, deck switches, stripping techniques and marking systems.
