The Motel Switch

Effect: A motel with four rooms, (use a Four of any suit.) Four Aces, four Kings, four Queens, four Jacks, come and mix in the same four rooms. When the inspector comes to check, all the Aces are in one room, the Kings in another, as are the Jacks and the Queens. Amazing, huh?

1. Take out the four Aces, four Queens, four Jacks, and four Kings. You also need any Four to act as the motel, and any other one card to be the inspector. Lay the Four face up on the table.

2.) Start your story; something along the lines of: "There are four Kings who come to a motel and ask for one room. They are separated." Lay the Kings out, face up, one at each corner of the Four. Continue the story, doing the same for the Queens, Jacks, and Aces.

3.) Pick up the four piles, one on top of the other. Cut these as much as you like.

4.) Deal the cards, one to each corner of the Four, then repeat until all the cards have been dealt.

5.) As the inspector (lay the extra card onto the Four) checks that all the same people (Jacks, Queens, Kings, and Aces) are separated, they really are!
