Liar, Liar

Effect: You go through a deck and ask a person to tell you when to stop. You take the first card of the pile and ask them if it is their card. It is not. You do it three more times, all NOT being their card. Then you pick up one that you put down and it is magically their card.

Card Trick:

Have a card selected and returned. Control it to the top. (Editor's note: The Double undercut is a good method. See the Terminology page.)

Go through a deck, making sure not to let the spectators see the faces of the cards.

When they say stop, you put that on top. Double lift the card(s) and ask if the one showing is theirs. They say no. Replace the card(s) on the deck, then take the top card and lay it on the table. You can say you're getting it out of the way. Cut the deck.

Show three more cards, each being put onto the table until you have four cards in a diamond shape. Remember to cut the deck in between each card.

Remembering the first card you put down, pick it up and say "I lied, this is your card!" Simple but fun.

Practice makes perfect, in this trick especially.
