Before you begin, place one
of the jokers on the bottom of the deck. Now tell the
spectator to take a card. Have her place it on top of the deck
and cut the cards. You can have her cut a lot of times. Then
say you have to have the joker on the bottom. Look for the
joker. When you find it, the card after it is the spectator's
card. Cut the deck so that her card is on top of the deck, and
the joker is on the bottom.
Now you ask:
- Ask how many weeks are in a
year. When the spectator answers 52, deal 5 cards onto the
table in a pile, and then deal 2 cards in a separate pile.
- Put the 2 card group on the
5 card group, pick them both up and put them on the deck.
- Ask how many months are in
a year. Deal 12 cards onto the table. Pick them up and replace
them on the deck.
- Ask how many days are in a
week. Deal 7 cards onto the table and then replace them on the
-Take off the top card and
bury it in the deck. Take the joker from the bottom and touch
the top card with it. Then turn over the top card, which is
the spectator's card.
Note (--bryan): Instead of moving the top card to
the bottom at the end, you may do a double lift instead. The
double lift is more difficult but looks a little better than
taking the top card off of the deck }:->
