I was now face to face with the castle moat, which was, indeed, very wide and very deep. Alas! I could not swim, and my chance of escape seemed of a truth hopeless, as, doubtless, it would have been had I not espied a boat tied to the wall by a r...

The Hidden Card

Preparation: The first thing you need to do is shuffle the cards in front of your spectators so they see the cards are not arranged

The Trick: Have the spectator pick one card and let them show it to every person in the group but you. Tell them to memorize the card and suit. While they are showing the card, count 7 cards off the top of the deck and hold them in your hand. Tell them to put their card face down on the 7 card pile of which you now have 8 on. Put this small pile on the bottom of the deck. Show them the bottom card on the deck and ask if it is theirs, (it won't be). Then put it face down on the table. Now take the next card on the bottom of the deck and place it on the top of the deck. Repeat this two more times until you have tree cards on the table.

The Sting: Now you want to show them this card on the bottom of the deck. it will not be theirs, but the card behind it is. You will not put this card face down but the card behind it. To do this you must use the "Slide Method" (gilde) Take your ring or middle finger and push this card down and slip their card out.

the table should look like this now: | 1 | | 2 | | 4 | | 3 |-----------this is their card

Now pick up the cards face down in this order, 1, 2, 3, 4. You know have 4 cards in your hand theirs is not the bottom card but once again the card behind it. Do the slide method (glide) one more time and put their card face down on the table. Show them the 3 remaining cards and ask them if any are theirs, they won't be so flip the face down card over and you just showed them their hidden card.
