It all boils down to you finding the selected card. You can name it, pull it out of the deck, or take it out of your pocket. Unless you develop a premise, plot, and payoff, its a show and tell trick. They pick a card, you find it.
But what if you didnt just reveal the selectors selection? What if you could psychoanalyze information out of someone? What if, using psychoanalysis, you could reveal an audience members secret thoughts? What if, at the same time, you could develop your character? And be funny, clever, and witty in public. Do you get to do all that with standard pick a card tricks?
There is a trick that allows you to do all this. It was released in 2003. Not only was the method fully explained, but the presentation was completely detailed, with tips on the blocking, staging, timing, and tempo.
Now what if I told you that the price was only TEN DOLLARS? Interested?
Its called Senator Crandalls Cut-Up Card Trick and its available for only $10 from Think Like a Conjurer, the Website for the Ron Bauer Private Studies series. http://www.thinklikeaconjurer.com/
