If anyone has Pit's book Card Fictions can you please help with the following routine, Triple Countdown.

Does anyone have an easier method to have three spectators look at seemingly 3 different cards when they all infact look at the same card, i was thinking of doing the following, triple lift (show first spec), place single card onto table in front of them, then double (show second spec) place single card in front of them, then show third spec the top card and place that in front of them, this gets the 3 spectators looking at the same card with the other specs being aware of that fact.

Does anyone think this would look convincing enough, i need a good reason to place the triple and then the double back onto the deck as i place a single card back in front of them.

Try two top changes. It's easier to motivate the action that covers a top change than the actual action of a multiple-turnover sequence.
