You Will Need
- A deck of cards
Tell the participant you are going to use mind control to make a card magically rise to the top of a deck.
Perform a double lift
As you’re talking, perform a double lift -- that is, pretend you are taking just the top card from the top of the deck, but actually remove the first two cards.
Turn the cards
Turn the cards over and ask the participant to memorize the card you are showing them -- which they think is the top card.
Put the cards back
When they have assured you they have the card memorized, put the cards back on the top of the deck, and make a big show of removing the top card putting it into the middle of the deck.
Tap the deck
Ask the participant to tap on the deck and visualize the card rising toward them. Now flip over the top card, and enjoy their amazement that the card you supposedly shoved in the middle is suddenly back on top!
