A New Method for Turning a Borrowed Deck of Cards Into an Automatic Killing Machine!

Docc Hilford has devised a simple yet highly effective system that can be applied to any borrowed deck of cards in minutes, making the free selection of any card or pair of cards instantly known! Here are just a few of the effects possible:

  • Two cards and a word are chosen by three spectators. You hypnotize a woman who reveals the names of the cards and the chosen word!
  • You write three different predictions, each with a spectator's initials on them. The spectators freely select cards and your predictions match the selections!
  • A spectator secretly chooses two coins from his pocket. Another freely chooses two cards. The values of the coins and cards are added together. You know the total, the values of the coins, the names of both cards and even the date on one of the coins!
This system took years to develop along with the audience-tested routines. Now you can perform miracles without sleight-of-hand or memory techniques.

When someone speaks of cards that can be done with a "borrowed" deck of cards, that usually means that someone hands you their deck of cards, and you start performing. It does NOT mean that someone hands you their deck of cards, and you excuse yourself while you retreat to a private area to set up your stack.

Yes, the Lolita System is a stack. It's not a stack that will stand up to scrutiny, because there's too much of a pattern to it, and it's missing cards that people tend to notice. The main purpose behind this stack is that you are able to know things about adjacent pairs of cards. This is actually a very interesting property, but it means that in every effect, when you ask a spectator to "choose two cards", they have to be two cards that are next to each other in the deck. Frankly, this is an odd restriction, and many spectators will automatically assume that this is part of the explanation as to how the effect was accomplished.

I love stacked deck and memorized deck work, but this is not a stack I'd ever use, for the reasons given above. Nor would I refer to my stacked/memorized deck work as effects performed with a "borrowed" deck of cards.
