James Brown's Ultimate Card-to-Box routine... Pure, delicious, sleight-of-hand.

Almost 20 years ago, James came up with a card-to-box routine called ‘Box Clever’.

Since then, tens of thousands of magicians around the world have added it to their professional and personal repertoire... Including us.

So despite the hundreds of other good card-to-box effects that hit the market since, when we found ourselves performing casually in Amsterdam last year - we defaulted to this opener. 

Our job at Ellusionist is to help you develop your taste & skill as a magician - so we wouldn’t be doing our job if we didn’t teach you everything we choose to perform ourselves... aka 'Ultimate Card to Box'. 

So we immediately phoned James to meet us in London & film this for YOU. 

All it requires is a normal deck of cards - and it's box. 

It's pure, delicious sleight-of-hand with misdirection baked right in. 

  • No gimmicks
  • No set-up 

Because this is an instant video tutorial, you'll be able to start learning this routine within seconds after checkout. 

You'll learn: 

  • James' original Box Clever routine 
  • The New, bold-faced 'Ultimate Card to Box' routine that James has kept secret... until now
  • How to perform 'Ultimate Card to Box' even without a table. 
  • + The theory & misdirection that makes routine hit again & again - while their body collapses with awe. 

In fact, here is a full performance of Team E's Yannick performing the original routine to football fans outside a bar in the pouring rain...

We aren't exaggerating here, you'll learn that original routine + James' new version, which is [chef's kiss] flawless.

So flawless, that even after James taught us his new version, we had him perform it for us - and it STILL fooled us, BADLY. 

Each movement is like a dance. It just flows effortlessly and drags you willingly down Foolers Lane. 

Plus, Ultimate Card to Box is modular. So you can perform 1 phase or all the phases. You choose. 

Time & creativity have tried to defeat this routine - both have failed. It's our go-to card-to-box routine and we know it'll be yours too.

James’ ability to simplify things is above and beyond. The way psychology is broken down to make simplicity of the trick and understanding from the laymans point of view makes jt even more powerful and well worth the money.

The Ultimate card to box

Great trick and so well taught. Few slights and a great lesson in the use of distraction. The trick delivers multiple elements of surprise and is good value for money. I’m still practicing.

Exquisite detail in the teaching, long been a fan of James and actually went to his live weekend class. Just watch his eyes and you will learn so much about misdirections. You have spent much more for the latest gimmick, I know I have, and gotten much less.
