Sitting on the Card

Effect: The magician displays a normal deck and asks a spectator to replace the card on top. The magician then asks the spectator to stand up. The spectator does so and the magician deals the spectator's card, along with several others, on to the table. He asks the spectator to put his hand on that pile, to prevent the card from being tampered with. The magician then deals several other cards onto the spectator's seat. The spectator sits on those cards. THe magician reveals that the spectator's card has moved, magically, from the table, to under the spectator. Note: this trick is best when the magician is performing in a restaurant or other meal time.


When the spectator is looking at his card and showing it to his friends, the magician secretly takes the bottom half of the deck and flips it over so that it is face up, but still beneath the top half. The spectator returns his card on top of the deck and the magician aks him to stand up. When the spectator is distracted doing this, the magician flips the deck over, so that the spectator's card is now on the bottom and an indifferent card is on top.The magician then deals these indifferent cards on top of the table. He then flips the cards over again at a time that is convenient, and deals what the spectator think are indifferent cards onto his seat. The rest is presentation.

One final note: If the volunteer should happen to place one of the cards on the bottom of the deck, then simply cut the deck and fan the cards to expose the similar pair.
