Paper and Predictions





Effect: Performer makes a prediction and writes it down. The folded paper is given to a spectator who does not look at it. Someone cuts the deck and takes a random card. The performer counts off a number of cards equal to the face value of that card onto the table. The last card turned is the predicted card.

Preparation: Know what the bottom card is.

Card Trick:

1. Let the spectator shuffle the deck

2. Take the deck back and glimpse the bottom card

3. Set the cards on the table and tell the audience that you will predict a card that will appear later in the trick.

4. Write down on a piece of paper the name of the bottom card. Fold the paper so it cannot be seen.

5. Give the paper to a spectator and tell them not to look at it.

6. Request that the deck be cut and give the top half to the spectator.

7. Tell them they may shuffle their deck and then place any card from their packet face up on the table.

8. Count the number of symbols on the card. i.e. 8 diamonds would be on a 6 of diamonds.

9. Count off that number of cards, stopping before you turn over the last card.(get ready to turn it face up on the table, but leave it on top of the deck)

10. Tell them to read the paper you gave them earlier and show it to everyone.

11. While they do this replace the top card with the bottom card. As long as they are reading it, they won't notice.

12. As soon as they look back at you. Flip the top card over onto the table, it will be the card you predicted.

Tip: Don't perform this in front of more that 3 or four people, they might not be reading the paper and see you switch the card.
