The purpose of a magic trick or conjuring trick is to amuse the watcher even though they are generally aware that the magic is performed using trickery. The watcher derives enjoyment from the magician's skill and cunning. Usually, magicians will refuse to reveal their methods to the audience. There are various types of magic such as close-up magic performed close to the audience, street magic where the magician encourages his audience to part with money on the promise of a good performance.

Close up magic relies mostly on sleight of hand in which skillful manipulation of coins, cards and other props enable the perpetrator to create the illusion that something has happened that has not actually. For example, the appearance that an item has vanished (or been produced) can be achieved by a sleight in which the item is held in such a way that it is not visible to the audience and the hand appears empty.
