What You'll Need:
At the Party:
- Stack your deck with the five of clubs and the four of spades on the top of the deck.
- Just below them, place the four of clubs and the five of spades.
- Pick up the top two cards and show them quickly to the audience. You don't need to see the cards since you already know what they are!
- Ask two volunteers to step up, and hand one of the cards to each of them, face-down.
- Then, have the volunteers randomly place the cards anywhere in the middle of the deck.
- Tap the deck, say some magic words, and ask the cards to rise to the top of the stack.
- Peel off the four of clubs and five of spades, showing them to the audience.
- It will appear that the two cards they glanced at the beginning of the trick magically rose to the top of the deck.
