Don't you all laugh at me for telling about this old card trick..
This is a simple trick, but devastivating in effect. It is really a TALKING TRICK, that guides a spectator or another to PICK the card you want them too. Add a couple false shuffles, let another spectator or gambler cut the cards (hitting the crimp), low and behold it looks like something that can't be done.
Okay, enough talk, here it is..
I pin point a card that I am going to use. Say the ACE OF SPADES.
I got the deck in my hand I know where the Ace of Spade is.
I false shuffle a couple times, put in a crimp,let another spectator cut the cards, and the put the card in a bag.
Okay, I TELL the spectators that there are four cards, the Ace of Spades, 2 of spades, 3 of spades, and 4 of spades. I tell them to PICK ONE. Now here is the term I use to GUIDE THEM TO THE ACE OF SPADES.
When somebody picks the 3 or 4 of spades, I reply, "that leaves the 1 & 2 of spades!! Where as if they had picked the 1 & 2 the first time, I would then proceed to tell them to pick on from that combo. In the end I guide them to the card I have pin pointed. Sometimes I would put the card 10 cards deep in the deck. Have somebody cut the cards, tell them to count off ten cards, and there was the card..I have won some bets of that trick and it always gets a rise out of everyone. When merely I am doing nothing but "guide talking".. And the false shuffles, crimps and putting the cards in a bag or somebody coat pocket is just for effect...
Again, I know this trick dosen't hold water up against the maze of tricks that you all have around here..
