A good pinch of salt which can be hidden in your
Have a shuffled deck of cards placed on
the floor. Have a person look through the deck and choose
a card. Have him/her place his card on top of the deck.
Now have them cut the deck into five seperate piles.
(Remember that their chosen card
is on the top of the first pile.)
Now, by pointing to the piles have them
put the deck back together in a different order.
(The secret move
to this trick is that as you are pointing at the card
piles, instructing the audience member to put them
back together, you take a pinch of salt and drop it
on top of the chosen card as you point to it. )
Then, lightly kick the deck of cards with
your right foot, slide into the cards to make them glide
to the left.
Examine the deck. The place in the deck
with the most distance between one card and the next
is the chosen card..
Notes: Practice this trick
before performing to get a feel for how hard to kick
the cards, and how to "see" the chosen card.
