Artifex proudly presents to you an incredible credit card routine!

With Creditka, everything happens in the participant's start with a devastatingly direct ACAAN effect; after a card is chosen and a random digit from the credit card number is picked the card is located AT the chosen number IN a shuffled deck.

Then the kicker...they look back at the credit card but the digits are no longer there; instead, they see the name of the selected card IMPRINTED where the numbers were a minute ago!

Editor's note: I love effects like this because I'm always trying to find tricks that fit in my wallet. Almost every credit card in my wallet now has it's own routine...and Creditka just became my newest addition!

A true 21st-century miracle in your wallet.

The Forgotten Treasure!


An astounding magic trick done with math!

This is an original Creative Crafthouse design based on math magic from the book, “ The Collected works of Alex Elmsley,” by Stephen Minch. The 8 different alder wood swords are very cool and give the trick a nice flare. Each sword has 6 different numbers on it (48 different numbers in total). The swords are about 5 1/2" long and 1/4" thick. They will come strung on a chain for your convenience and can easily be separated as shown in the photo.

Let a participant select one of the swords and then a number on that sword, keeping that number a secret. You can even have up to 8 people select a sword at random. You then have them simply indicate the shapes (square or circle) surrounding the numbers on the sword, making up a lie about the shape surrounding the number they chose. At no time do they say aloud any numbers and at no time during the trick are you able to see the swords. Astonishingly, you will be able to correctly name the number(s) chosen.

Designed and made in Spring Hill, FL.

Cost: $19.99 + tax
