"can i see your cards?"
"OH MY GOD!!... A YETI BEHIND YOU!!!"

"Sorry it was a cat... heres them cards you wanna look at"

When I'm in long sleeves I always keep a clean deck up my sleeve, which always makes a deck switch easy. If it's the wrong colour, I just go with, wait I'm still going to do one more trick with it; do the deck switch and tell them you changed the colour of the deck, then let them examine to their hearts' content. At the very least it will keep the questions in their minds.

I have extra red and blue deck ... 1 in my left shirt pocket and 1 in my back pocket.. haha... i simply keep the deck when they ask for inspection and do a quick drop and pull. Then just let them examine ... after that i just use the same deck for another trick. haha

Some of you people are weird. All these fancy ways to hide and change decks. I do mostly ungimmicked tricks and I will usually let spectators check the deck if they want, but they usually don't ask. Once you have shown people you have some skill, they stop asking.


Anyway, some of you need to learn to say no.

just say with every trick what you do, do you want to examine it, and when they say no, you do the tricks with gimmix

What I do in this tricky situation is this: stick tongue out and lick deck very sloppy like ( if you feel the situation warrants a further measure spit a big loogy) and quickly and confidently hand the pack out for exam. the most common response is: "nevermid....". This "out" works particularly well on chicks(and Edited guys). and there you have it penguins, lets keep this little gem between us ok.

I am an amateur, performing occasionally for friends. When I use a stripper deck it's no problem letting them examine the cards, but most trick decks are not so subtle.

Any suggestions on how to answer "Let me see those cards."


been there, done that, everyone has and will.
basically, most card tricks with gimmicks can be done one way or another with normal cards. sleight of hand shall rule all!
