Righting a Wrong





Ask the spectator to pick a card.

* take the card into the deck and bring it to the top. (This may be done by excepting the card on the top of the deck and then doing some kind of false shuffle, if the conjurer does not know any shifts).

* Ask spectator to choose a number. (chances he'll choose a number not larger then 15).

* Let him count off the deck this number of cards, and tell him the flip the last one, announcing this is the selected card, which of course it isn't.

* return the cards to the top of the deck. [Now the chosen card is X cards below the top, X being the selected number]

* Find some kind of excuse the count of the cards yourself.

* This time when you reach the last card to count, do not take if of the deck, but execute a Double Lift, lifting 2 cards - the chosen one and below it another card.

* announce the card shown (the wrong one) to be the chosen card.

* The spectator/s will gladly tell you you were wrong again. This is the most deceptive part of the trick:

* say the card shown (let's say the two of clubs) is known for making a lot of trouble.

* return the two cards to the deck and then take the top card (the chosen one) and put it aside, not allowing the spectators to recognize it.

* Return the cards taken off back on the deck and count off the cards for the last time. This time lift the last card. The spectators would be amazed to see it's the two of clubs once again.

* remark on the troublesome two of clubs and flip the card previously put aside - at last, the chosen card.

The spectator would be amazed.

Practical excuses for counting off cards could refer to the speed of counting - first say the spectator counted the cards too slowly, and count the cards fast. Then say you counted them too fast and count them again.
