Reversed Card





The magician spreads a deck of cards between his hands - a card is selected and removed by a spectator.

The spectator looks at the card and shows it around.

The 'spread' is closed and the magician asks that the chosen card be returned to the deck - chosen card is slid (face down) - into the middle of the deck.

The magician casually remarks upon the impossibility of the card being able to reverse itself within the deck. "It is impossible isn't it ?"

The magician riffles the end of the deck and announces that he will 'find and reverse' the card in the centre of the deck in one quick movement. He takes the deck behind his back and immediately his hands return to the front. The cards are spread face-up - there in the centre of the deck is a reversed card.

The card is removed and it is seen be the spectators chosen card !

***

Requirements : One new pack of cards.

The 'Key'

To perform this feat of magic you must reverse a single card on the bottom of the deck.

The cards are offered to the spectator by spreading them between the hands - being careful not to expose the reversed bottom card.

As the spectator is examining their chosen card gather up the spread and drop your hands to your side - turning the deck completely over as you do so (this requires a lot of practice).

The Turnover :- Gather the spread into the right hand and hold them there for a second or two then reach across with the left hand and take the deck with the left hand (palm down), as you bring the deck back across to your left side allow the hand to drop to your side, as you bring your hand back, turn it palm up - thus reversing the deck. While this action is taking place you should be asking the spectator to "Please examine the card and show it to the nearest warm body."

Position check: You are now holding the deck in your left hand, face up, with one card reversed on the top - giving the appearance of a normal deck.

Have the chosen card inserted into the middle of the deck, square the deck and hold the deck at your finger tips for a moment (to show that you are not holding a break in the cards).

Comment about the impossibility of the card being able to turn its self over within the deck. In another smooth movement take the deck around your back and quickly turn over the top (reversed) card and immediately bring the deck back out in front.

The deck is now held face-up.

Slowly spread the cards (to build up the suspense) to reveal one face-down card.

The face-down card is removed and seen to be the chosen card ! ! !

To the spectators it will seem impossible that you had time to locate and reverse the card in one quick movement.

Thus leaving them in a quandary !

Enjoy !
