My new hobby...card tricks.

in #blog2 years ago

I've gotten interested in card tricks, and I am learning them just from YouTube videos. I'm still just starting out, and don't know if I will be able to master or do any very impressive tricks. BUT I WILL TRY!!

Here are some of them that I am learning:

  • The ''angel''. It's pretty simple. It's just used for flipping over cards.


  • The two-hand flourish (fan)

  • A teleporting trick.


  • And the one hand card flourish (one-handed fan). Only half a deck used for this trick.


I have enjoyed learning these tricks and want to learn more. As I make progress, I will make another post sharing what I have learned.

And I can make a tutorial, or point you to some helpful ones if you are interested. Just put what trick you want to learn in the comments below.

Thank you for reading, I hope you enjoyed it!



Having a healthy hobby can be good for the mind!! I wish you the best on the improvement of your skill!!


Very healthy indeed!

I liked cards as a kid but never did anything with the interest. I am hoping he has stuck with it!

How far did you get with these?

I dont think I ever saw a video or followup post!


That looks pretty cool!
Keep going. I want to see how it goes.

Can you do it as a video?

Thanks. It has been a long time since I saw a post from you with pictures.
Looks really hard to follow that card trick. Maybe I gotta watch the Youtube video. Was it easy for you?

I will see if I can try and make a video if not I will put a link to a video in the comments. And yes, it was pretty easy after I practiced a little.

This is a great hobby. I was asked to invite you to a geolocation game called Munzee. You can check out my posts to discover more information about this awesome game. It is a game based on QR code stickers placed out in the public. It is like a modern-day scavenger hunt. If you have questions please feel free to ask.

Great job!

Keep on learning! I'm sure your parents are proud!!

Good stuff! That is a neat hobby to have.

Very cool! Card tricks take a lot of practice to get right, but they are so much fun!
