Effect: A full deck of playing cards is introduced and six cards are counted one by one as the audience watches closely. The rest of the deck is placed aside.
Of the six cards three cards are discarded and the magician proves that six minus three equals six, as there are still six cards!
This happens time and time again and it seems that the cards just never go away!
This trick is easy for anyone to do.
No sleight-of-hand required with this method.
A classic and very entertaining trick good for both parlor or stage performance.
