They freely choose the card. They shuffle the deck. You find it behind your back. Is this next level sleight of hand? Is this something only a master can perform? Is this a pipe dream? No. This is the World’s Toughest Card Trick by Will Fern.

Here’s what happens:

A deck of cards is genuinely shuffled by the audience. The magician decides to ramp the difficulty up and perform the trick entirely behind their back. With the cards held behind their back, the magician has the spectator freely select a card. The audience member then places the card back in the deck and gives the deck a couple of shuffles. The magician retrieves the cards from the spectator, and while still holding them behind their back dramatically removes a card from the deck. Unfortunately, the magician has failed to find the selected card. When the magician turns back around, all it takes is a magical gesture for the card to transform into the selected card.

The best part about the trick is that it’s incredibly easy to do. Will Fern has used this trick to delight audiences all over the country and also to fool hundreds of magicians. You’ll get detailed instructions from Will on how to make the special gimmick that allows you to perform this trick. You’ll keep this utility gimmick in your deck at all times to perform this trick at a moment’s notice. This is the trick Will performs at walk around events when he wants to gather a crowd. Give your audience the one-two punch with Will Fern’s World’s Toughest Card Trick.

The trick requires that the participating spectator to use a' Vegas (riffle) shuffle'. Most of my audiences are not serious card players (neither am I) and so can only do a basic overhead shuffle, which will not do for this trick.

Great Trick Real Fooler Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 10th, 2021
This is a great trick and will indeed fool magicians. I took 1 star off for 1 minor drawback that I think makes it harder to perform for Laymen than Magicians oddly enough. You have to find a spectator who can riffle shuffle. As I said, not an issue among magicians, but hopping from group to group, or table to table I am sometimes hard pressed to find someone who can actually riffle shuffle, so kids for example will probably not be able to participate, still entertaining for them but probably cant do a good riffle shuffle. Again this is not a huge issue and can be overcome with a little audience management but I did think it was worth noting. All in all this trick is a true value at 10 dollars and should not be missed.

Good, but spectator must riffle shuffle. Report this review

This is a very neat trick, taking an age-old principle and using it to good effect. The only drawback (and why it falls short of a four star rating), is that your participant must be able to riffle shuffle. (I.e the fancy end to end interlaced type shuffle). This cuts out a lot of everyday people and means that audience assessment is needed before you can perform this trick. If you get someone who does an ordinary overhand shuffle (that’s a lot of people!) it could all end in tears.

This one's a killer Report this review

I got this from Will years ago at one of his lectures. Still part of my arsenal to this day. The core concept behind the effect is so diabolical and has so many other applications behind this effect. Highly recommended

Brilliant. It only looks tough, but if you can riffle shuffle, you can do this. Great video, wonderful instruction. Thank you Will!

Will is one of my favorite close-up entertainers and this trick was a huge hit when he performed it for the entire room at a 4F Convention. The crowd went WILD (and your spectators will, too). Highly recommended.

Will Fern is a real worker, so he doesn't have time for anything less than 5-star performance pieces. This is one of them. This is the real work on an outstanding performance piece that anyone could fit into a working repertoire. You will not be disappointed.

This is a great illusion. However, you must practice, practice and practice. The trick deserves five stars, but there’s not enough emphasis on practice.

great effect Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 29th, 2021
Great trick and a very engaging teacher. It really isn't difficult and if you've already worked with 'the method' before...and it's likely you have...you'll be performing this after one sitting..... lots of opportunity to engage and have fun with the audience.... since they're staring at your behind..... but you can twist and turn and do what needs to be done while your turning and talking..to change their point of view as you see fit... :-) ..It's a very fun trick to do... my lovely neighbor and her friend came over shortly after I learned the trick..... her loud laughter at the reveal was all the feedback I needed to know that this one is a keeper.
