Effect: He spectator
chooses a card from a "clock" made by the magician. Then the
clock is put on the bottom of the deck; at this time the
magician turns around while the spectator takes the same
number of the hour that they picked and put that many cards on
the bottom of the deck. Next the magician turns back around,
throws the whole deck on the table (one by one) then mixes
them up on the table and finds the exact card!!!
Card Trick:
First make a clock by putting
the queen on top then set the upper left corner of the ace on
the lower right corner of the queen. Then the two on the lower
left corner of the ace all the way to the six. When there set
the upper left corner of the six on the lower right corner of
the seven. Do that all the way around and try to make it in
the shape of a clock (12 on top(the queen)3 to the right 6 on
the bottom 9 to the right) Now tell the spectator to think of
their favorite hour of the day and tell them to remember the
card that represents that hour. After that pick up the clock
by sliding the ace under the two, the two under the three all
the way around. Be sure to make sure the clock stays in order
(1 to 12). Put the clock on the bottom. next tell them to take
the same number of the hour the picked and put that many cards
on the bottom from the top. While they do this you should turn
around. When they are done take the deck back and begin
tossing cards one at a time one from the top and from the
bottom. Now here is the tricky part; count how many cards you
throw from the bottom and when you throw the 13th one keep
your eye on it(that is there card). When you have finished
throwing all the cards place your thumb on there card and mix
all the cards up. Now say wouldn't it be a good trick if I
turn all the cards over and found your card? Well I will do it
with out turning them over. Then pretend to concentrate real
hard and flip over their card! They will be amazed!
