Pick For Me





Shuffle a deck of cards, getting a look at the bottom card. Don't be obvious. Spread the cards out all over the table, face down. Keep your eye on where the bottom card ends up. Then, you ask the spectator to find for you whatever card the bottom one was. Tell them not to pick it UP, but just to point at the card they think it is. For instance, if the bottom card was a Queen of Hearts, you would say: "Pick for me the Queen of Hearts." (Of course, you don't TELL them you know it was the bottom card!)

The spectator will point to a card, and you pick that one up, not letting the audience see what card it really is. Then, depending on the card you really picked up, tell the spectator to now choose that one. If it was a 9 of Clubs, you would tell them to pick the 9 of clubs. They choose another card, and you pick it up.

Now you say that YOU will choose a card, and say the name of whatever card you just picked up. Pick up the original bottom card (Queen of Hearts, in our example.) Show the audience the cards you are holding, and they will be amazed. Don't tell them how to do it, a magician never reveals her secrets.
