Excalibur Deck by Devin Knight
Make impossible card predictions with Devin Knight's new Excalibur Deck! Mail a VIP a registered letter and never touch it again. Have him bring it to the show. Show a deck of cards to be different and hand them to any spectator (no stooge) and have them deal the cards face down on the table, while holding the deck in their hands. They stop anywhere during the deal and set the card aside. Magician tells them to check the cards before and after in the deck. This allows the person see if they had stopped one sooner or later the selection would have been completely different. The selected card is turned over, and the VIP opens the envelope and inside is the MATCHING CARD!
Other ways to do this effect include:
Have an envelope you never touch hanging from the ceiling. Anybody opens it, and inside is a duplicate of the same card just selected moments ago.
The freely stopped at card can be predicted in the classified ads in your local paper.
Important points to remember:
This can be hands-off for the magician. The cards are shown to be different. The spectators deal and stop anywhere, they can change their mind and keep dealing. Cards in the deck before and after can be shown to be different cards.
No Skill or Sleights
No Rough and Smooth
No Stuck Together Cards
No Mark Cards
No Long or Short Cards
Magician need never touch the deck once handed to the spectator. Spectator turns over the selected card. No need for you ever to touch it. You never touch the envelope containing the prediction. It is opened by the VIP and the card is removed by them.
As clean as it gets. Deck can be used in other card prediction effects. Works perfectly with the IN THE NEWS effect. Supplied in Bicycle Poker card stock. A true reputation maker than will fool the wise ones.
