Hello and welcome to FASDIU Enterprises. FASDIU is an acronym for "from a shuffled deck in use," the title of my first set of lecture notes. Those notes (and the FASDIU II notes that followed) feature magical routines with playing cards that may be performed with any deck, anytime - no complicated set-ups, gaffed cards, or memorized decks. It's not that I'm opposed to the use of large set-ups, gaffs, or memorization. I'll use those methods in a New York minute with no regrets! However, 99% of the card magic I perform is spectator-interactive and I'm loathe to hand my audience a deck that contains a stack that I want to preserve or a gaff . So, many years ago I began using and constructing powerful and/or entertaining routines that may be performed with a borrowed, shuffled deck. I use almost all of the routines in the ...from a shuffled deck in use... and FASDIU II notes in social settings, from behind the bar, at trade shows, while strolling, and in more formal close-up shows. Of course, I would invite you to do the same!
