The invention of the classic trick where the four Aces are deal face down, three indifferent cards are dealt onto each, yet the Aces mysteriously gather into one of the packets, is usually attributed to the French magician Conus. However, ever since its original publication in 1853, magicians are still coming up with amazing variations of this timeless effect and enchanting audiences with them to this day.
On these videos, you’ll meet a number of world-class magicians who each have their own singular take on the Ace Assembly plot. Hugard and Braue, in their classic book,` Expert Card Technique, wrote, “Of all the tricks with playing cards, as much thought has been expended on the Four Ace trick as on any other…” and the performers – and performances – you’ll watch and learn from on these videos are ample evidence why.
