World's Best

THE EFFECT: The magician shuffles the deck with the Hindu Shuffle, he tells the spectator to say stop anywhere they like. When they say stop he shows them the card they cut to and gets them to memorize it.


The magician puts the rest of the deck on their card so it is lost once more. He then spreads the cards out to reveal one card in the deck is red. The magician gets the spectator to pull the card from the deck and turn it over. It is the spectators card!


THE SECRET: You will need a blue deck and a red card that is any card of your choice. Whichever card you choose as the red card, remove the blue card version from the deck.


Put the red card on the bottom and you are set. To perform, hold the deck ready to do the Hindu Shuffle. You need to hold the deck from above and use your other hand to strip off small packets of cards from the top of the deck into your other hand. If you keep doing this fast it looks like you are mixing through the deck. Ask the spectator to say stop and when they do show them the bottom of the deck.


Because of the way you have shuffled the cards the spectator will not realise it is the bottom of the deck. Get them to memorize the card (which is in fact the red card).


Place the cards back on the deck so the card is lost. Then simply spread the cards and show there is one red card in the deck. Get the spectator to remove and turn over this card. It will be there chosen card! THANK YOU.

This is Your Card NEW
by: MagicMasonBoss

Start by fanning out the cards and asking the spectator to choose any card, after he picks a card ask him to memorize it. While he is doing that take 3 cards off the top of the deck and hold them in your other hand, ask him to put his card on top of the deck in your left hand then put the 3 cards on top of the spectator's card( his/her card should be 4th from the top). Do your favorite shuffle to keep the 4 cards on top in the same order. After the shuffle, take the top 4 cards of the deck using the reverse count so that when you square up the cards that the spectator's card will be on the top of the 4 face down cards and at the bottom of the 4 face up cards. Square up the cards and hold them in a grip that allows u to execute the glide move. Move your hand so the the packet faces the spectator and say is this your card, after he says no turn your hand downwards and put the card u just showed him on the table in front of u, after that, turn your hand downwards, put the bottom card in your hand on the top of the 3 cards. Show the spectator the bottom face up card and say "is this your card,'' after he says no turn your hand downward and execute the glide taking the spectator's card and putting it on the table then take the card u just showed him and put it on the top of the 1 card u now have and show him the bottom face up card and say," is this your card."'he says no and then put that card down to the right of the spectator's card then show him the last card in your hand and say what u said the last 3 times and then put that card at the right most side of the 3 face down cards. Gather up the cards from right to left so that the spectator's card is 2nd behind the 1st face up card. Repeat the process except execute the glide on the 1st card u show the spectator so that the spectator's card is on the leftmost side of the table. After all the cards are placed faced down with the spectator's card on the leftmost side of the 4 cards gather up the cards from left to right and square the 4 cards face up so that the spectator's card is on the bottom of the 4 cards, ask the spectator to hold out 1 of his hands in a fist with his/her thumb on top of his/her hand. Insert the 4 face up cards in between his/her pointer and middle fingers. Make sure that the person's grip on the cards isn't to tight or loose( u may need to practice this part) then slap the 4 cards then all the cards will fall to the floor except the spectator's card which will remain in the spectator's 1st and 2nd fingers.
