The effect of the trick: Two cards, inserted into a deck at very different points, magically come together.

This trick is a simplified version of Come Together (above)
Hand a pack of cards to an audience member and ask him/her to shuffle it and cut it into two fairly equal piles, giving one to you and keeping a hold on the other.

At this point, you sneak a peek at the bottom card of your pile.

Ask the volunteer to select a card from his stack, secretly to look at it, remember it and then place it on top of his pile. While the helper is doing this, you make a show of doing the same. However, unbeknown to the volunteer, you don't actually remember your card, - it doesn't matter at all - the important card for you to remember is the one on the bottom of your pile.

Next ask the volunteer to put his pile face-down on the table and you place yours on top of it. The two selected cards are now separated by half the pack, but the card you earlier sneaked a peek at, previously the bottom of your pile, is now on top of the volunteers card. Explain that the two selected cards are best buddies and that they will come together despite any efforts to keep them apart.

Ask the volunteer what his card was, name the card you sneaked a peek at then spread the pack face-up and the two named cards will be right next to each other in the centre.
