The magician asks a spectator to pick a card and memorize it. The spectator returns the card into the middle of the deck. The magician puts the deck behind their back and exclaims "I will try and find your selected card!"
After a few seconds the magician exclaims "Is this your card"
showing the spectator a card. The spectator says NO!
Looking rather embarrassed the magicians says "OK let me try a different way!"
He snaps his fingers and spreads the cards face down onto the table. The spectators card is the only one face up!
Things you need to do this trick:•
A deck of cards•
First you need to flip over the bottom card of the deck then you are good to go.THE SECRET:
Fan the cards to the spectator so they can pick a card. WARNING:
Don't show the last card! When they take the card tell them not to show you and ask them to memorize it,
While they are memorizing the card act fast and flip the deck over. You can do this easily and unnoticed while pretending to square up the deck. Holding the deck completely square get them to place their card in the middle of the deck somewhere.
Now tell the spectator that you will find their card behind your back. When the cards are behind your back you need to secretly flip over the bottom card again. Act as though you have got the card wrong - this makes the spectator feel smug.
Bring the cards back into view, give a magical snap then spread the cards onto the table showing that the spectators card is the only face up card in the deck!
