The Six Guessed Cards
Before you begin, memorize a card and its location in the deck (preferably not at the top or bottom). Ask someone in the audience to write down your predictions. Say,"I will now pick a..," and name the card you memorized. Remove any card from the deck except the one you memorized, and glance at it to "confirm" your guess. Say, "I will now pick a ..," naming the card you just looked at. Each time, the card you predict is the card you just looked at. Do this until you have five cards in your hand. On the sixth card, use the name of the card you just picked and really pick up the card you memorized at the beginning. Tell the spectator to name the cards in order and reveal that you have predicted every single one.
