Performed by professionals and amateurs alike, the card trick is by far the most common form of close-up magic. Usually, all that is required is a deck of playing cards (either honest or gaffed, like the Svengali or stripped decks), the magician, and an audience.

Card tricks can be of the usual pick a card, any card variety or something completely different -- Cardini, for example, was renowned for his ability to make cards appear from nowhere while wearing gloves.

Combine some alcohol, two or more people and a pack of cards and one of them is certain to volunteer a trick or two.
