Little Bunny's Card Trick and the 8 of Spades

All:

If you have Bill Goldman's "Little Bunny Card Trick" (large version), I'd be interested to know if you have worked out anything with the 8 of spades on the last page of the book.

From looking at the back cover it looks like a psychological force or a clock type force might be in order here. (Maybe the words on the cover "Little Bunny Tells Time" is a hint?)

Anyhow, I thought perhaps it might make an interesting discussion topic.

I actually love this effect. After doing the regular routine, I do not rveal the final page. I go on with the deck of cards, having it schuffled. Then I do a fan force. You could do a classic force. I do the timing force with a fan of cards faces toward me. I run my finger aross the top of the fan. The participant only sees the backs. I time their saying stop so I get to eight. They take it out of the fan. Then with dramatic patter I reveal that the Bunny really did know all! Frankly, this has worked very well for me. Peace...Fred (Reisz)

Thanks for the post, Fred--good idea!

I keep thinking though, there must be a way to use the back cover to force the 8.

(Plus, everyone on the back cover looks just like Bill Goldman)
