The Jack's Party

Trick Courtesy of: (cjhanson@norwich.net)

Original Author: Ed Moske

Effect: This trick is a great crowd pleaser and will get a lot of recognition for its seemingly magical effects. Basically, you separate four sets of cards and magically bring them back together!!

Card Trick:

1. Take out the Kings, Queens, Jacks, and Aces.

2. Tell your audience that there is a story that goes along with this trick. (This will keep their attention)

3. Begin the story, "The jacks were having a party [Deal the four Jacks face up in four separate piles] and they invited their friends the Kings. [Deal a King face up on top of each Jack] They got a little bored so they invited the Queens to liven up the party!! [Deal the Queens on the Kings] The party got a little rowdy, so the cops came and took them all to jail. [Deal the Aces on the piles in the same way as the previous cards]".

4. Pick up the four piles, one on top of the other. You now have one pile with 16 cards in it.

5. Continue, "Along the way, the police cars got into an accident." Have the audience give the deck as many complete cuts as they wish. (In each "complete cut," the deck is cut and the bottom cards are immediately put on top.)

6. Deal four cards face down onto the table left to right, then four on top of those, and so on until you have four piles of four cards each.

7. Finish your story: "Even though they were separated in the accident, when they arrived at the station they were [as you say the next part, turn over all four piles] All Together!!!"

8. You will see that the aces, kings, queens, and jacks are in their own separate piles together!!!

9. Have fun with this one and change the story however you feel fit!!!

Firehouse Jacks

Trick Courtesy of: Webster (SnoWebster@AOL.com )

Description: As the original trick you set it up pretty much the same way, except instead on the 2-8 cards and the 4 aces behind them, you should have from the top of the deck 2 thru 10 and then the Aces. Now your ready.

1. Separate the four jacks from the rest of the deck along with 4 other random cards.

2. Fan the four jacks out to the audience with the other four cards hidden behind the back jack so that the audience cannot see them.

3. Begin with "These are the 4 Jack firemen and they were sent to this burning house [the deck] to put out the fire." Square up the cards and place them on top of the deck.

4. Say, "The first jack [actually one of the random cards] was sent to the bottom floor," placing it in the bottom of the deck.

5. Say, "The second jack was sent to the middle floor," placing it in the center of the deck.

6. Say, "The third Jack was also sent to the middle of the house, because this is where the fire was blazing."

7. Say, " The final Jack was sent to the top of the burning house," placing the last Jack near the top of the deck.

8. Then say, " Every time I knock, one of the Jacks will come out" (or ask audience to knock). After you knock, pick up the top card which will be a jack. Repeat this four times to get all four jacks out.
