This is a pre-owned item.
Here’s an easy to do effect that requires no sleight of hand, yet creates a very good effect.
Thirteen cards are counted off the top of the performer’s deck and placed face down onto the table. The rest of the pack is placed aside. The packet of thirteen cards is picked up and the faces of the cards are riffled to show that they are all different. Now the thirteen cards are alternately counted back onto the table with one card going face up and the next one face down, the next card face up, the next card face down, and continues until all the cards are mixed.
The cards are spread over the table top and the magician asks the spectator to select one of the face up cards, remember its name, and then turn it face down and place it back into the spread, and then to mix up the cards so its location is not known to anyone. During these past actions the performer’s back has been turned so as not to see which card was selected.
Now the performer turns back to face the spectators. The performer squares up the thirteen cards and commands the mixed cards to rearrange themselves so that they are all facing in the same direction once again with the exception of the selected card. When the cards are re-spread on the table all the cards are face down with the exception of one card which is face up. The face up card is the selected card!
You receive the necessary thirteen cards and instructions. You’ll need to supply the red back Fox Lake deck required to match the thirteen card packet.
