I Can't Believe They Don't Get It!





ffect: Good trick, easy to figure out, but it works on people who don't pay attention.

Card Trick:

1. The two bottom cards should have different values and either both should be black or one should be black and the other red. Let's say that they're the 8 of clubs and 7 of spades.

2. The card above these should match one of them in value and the other in suit. In the example above, the card above the 8 of clubs and 7 of spades should be either the 7 of clubs or the 8 of spades. The top card of the deck should be either the 8 of spades or the 7 of clubs.

3. Shuffle the deck, being sure to keep the prepared cards in the same spots.

4. Hold the deck horizontally in your left hand between thumb and index finger. With your right hand, put your thumb on the bottom card (which you know). Walk through the face-down deck with index and fingers of your right hand, and ask the spectator when to stop.

5. When the spectator says, "Stop," quickly pull off the cards you've walked through, sliding back the bottom card with your thumb so that it appears to be the bottom card of the group you've just pulled off the top.

6. Hold the card up and tell the spectator to take it. Close the deck. Fan it out and tell the spectator to stick the card in anywhere.

7. Repeat steps 3, 4, 5, and 6.

8. The cards the spectator selected were the 7 of spades and 8 of clubs. The selected cards are in the middle of the deck. The top and bottom cards of the deck in your hand are the 7 of clubs and 8 of spades.

9. Hold the deck vertically in your stronger hand between your index finger and thumb. Flick your wrist so that you catch the entire deck in your weaker hand, leaving the top and bottom cards in your strong hand.

10. Show the cards in your right hand to the spectator, who will mistake them for the cards he selected.
