The Ace Switch
Original Author: Unknown
Effect: The magician shows three aces to
the victim, and they aces are either red black red or black
red black. when the magician puts the three aces down, the
color combination will switch.
1. Get the 4 aces, but when you show them
to the person you are doing the trick to, hide the last ace
behind the stack, and fan them out towards him so he can't see
the last ace. Make sure the three aces are in some alternating
pattern in colors.
2. Tell the person about how he should
remember the suits and the color of the aces you showed him.
3. This is the hard part, put the aces
down on the table face down, hook the ace at the far left with
the tips of your fingers and slowly bring it away from the
other aces, while you pretend nothing happened and you
casually put the rest of the aces on the table, and fan the
last ace the you hid behind the stack to the right of the
pile. The ace that you grabbed, make sure you conceal it fully
and stick it some place, for instance under your leg or some
place where they won't see it, while you talk to the victim,
asking him if he remembered the cards. When he flips them
over, he will see that the aces switched in colors.
