Latest Haunted deck

Postby El Mystico » November 29th, 2002, 12:14 pm


Spectator chooses a card. He replaces it.
You put the pack on the table.
You step away.
You get out a pair of scissors and snip all around you - there are no threads.
Meanwhile, the astute spectator will have noticed that slowly, so slowly,the pack is cutting itself in half!
Yes - the top half of the deck is eeerily moving away from the bottom half.
You make a few mystic passes over the top of the pack, but it is clear that this action has got nothing to do with anything.
It is as if you have absolutely no control over the cards - they are CUTTING THEMSELVES!!!!

Yet, as if to maintain a facade, you say "And what was your card?"
The specator tells you.
You take the card the pack has cut to, and with panache and presence reminiscent of the great Robert-Houdin himself, you turn it around to
reveal - the card the spectator has just named.

ONLY $500!!!!!!!!

You'll get everything you need to perform this effect. The cards, the detailed instructions, that 'extra something' that is small enough to fit in your pocket. Plus a little cage and a year's supply of cheese.

Some time ago, I was at a convention and borrowed a deck of cards, had one selected and shuffled back into the deck (all by the spectator--I didn't touch the cards).

I had him balance the deck, back in the box, on the center of the table and told him to "chant rise, rise, rise."

All of a sudden the table began to rise, it then moved about the room.

This is now (the trick described here) on sale at Stevens Magic. :cool:
Stay tooned.
