  • All Around Square Up
    To correct a messy deck by lifting the deck to the fingertips and turning the deck by turning the wrist of one hand while grabbing the deck with the other hand.  Doing this action a couple of times until the deck is square.  Usually done to subtly show that there are no steps or breaks being held.
  • Alpha
    Is the first letter in the Greek alphabet and it means “The Beginning” loosely translated into “First” or “Number One”. Some card magicians like to use the word Alpha and Omega in titles of effects and moves.

  • Brain Wave Deck
    A deck of cards that lets a performer ask a spectator to think of and name any card and the deck is spread out, face down, to show that there is only one card face up and it is the thought of and called out card and it has a different back than the rest of the deck.
