Card Trick of the Week
Â "Strangers' Gallery"
The Effect: A blue deck of cards is shown. Three prediction cards are removed by the performer and a fourth card is selected by a spectator. When shown, all four cards are seen to be duplicates. One by one the backs of these four cards change colors: one is black, another is yellow, andÂ the last is the inverse of a regular card. After these four impossible changes, the deck is spread to show that all of the other cards have changed to red-backs.
IÂ like the freedom to hand my props to aÂ skeptical spectator at any time;Â as a result I rarely use trick cards. For this trick, I make an exception. The visual surprise of a three never-before-seen bicycle colors send spectators gasping. And the final reveal that the entire deck has changed colors is superb.
Watch the Demo:
The craftsmanship of the gimmicks is unrivalled while the instruction booklet is comprehensive and thorough. Several subtleties are described to ensure the maximum impact.
