What we're going to need are five key cards. So our
cards are going to
0:49
be Two, Four, Six, Eight, and Ten of Hearts.
0:52
Now, rather than using the Ace through Five, these are easy enough to remember.
0:56
Two, Four, Six, Eight, and Ten of Hearts and those cards
start
top
the
1:01
just like that.
1:03
Now we
the trick off we can give the cards a
, maintaining those five
1:07
cards right on top of the deck and we can also give the cards—fal––a
1:12
, and just so it
we're
up the cards. And now we tell the
1:17
spectator
1:18
we're
to
the cards into five piles.
the first card is the
1:25
Two, Four, Six, Eight, and Ten, the
five cards we deal are our five key
1:33
cards––
1:34
this trick will work. And we
dealing the cards, so we have five cards
1:39
in each of the five piles.
1:43
Okay, so now what we're
to
is, we're going to tell each spectator that
1:48
we'd like them to pick up a
and memorize one card and then shuffle the
1:54
cards. Spectator number one lifts up his pile and says “Okay,” and he wants to
1:59
the Nine of Spades, and he shuffles his pile, and we have him––
2:05
Spectator Number One––write down
2:08
Number One write down the Nine of Spades.
2:12
Now, if we're doing it to one person we want them to write the cards down. If
2:17
we're doing the trick to five people, they can each
their own card
2:20
without writing it down.
2:21
“Spectator Number Two, look at your cards. What card would you like? Spectator Number
2:26
Two wants the King of Hearts.
2:28
So he
up the cards and Spectator Number Two writes down the King of
2:35
Hearts. Spectator Number Three
at his cards and says––I have two pairs––
2:43
look
his cards and says “I want the Eight of Diamonds.”
2:46
So he mixes
the cards and Spectator Number Three writes down the Eight of
2:52
Diamonds. Spectator Number Four looks at his cards and says “I want the Ace of
2:59
Hearts.”
3:00
Of course he's not saying this out loud to you, just
the Ace of Hearts,
3:03
writing it down, the Spectator Number Four writes down the Ace. I'm
draw a
3:10
heart.
3:10
The Ace of Hearts. . . aah . . .and Spectator Number Five looks at his cards and
3:16
decides he wants the Jack of Hearts.
3:18
So he
his cards and Spectator Number Five wants the Jack of Hearts.
3:25
Okay, so now there are all the selections. We
the spectators
the cards
3:32
again, make sure that they are happy, and tell them there's no possible way we can
3:37
know what card they're thinking about, because
one of these
has five
3:40
cards and they're all thinking of a different cards. There's no way we could
3:44
possibly know that.
3:45
Now we have one spectator
the piles they'd like us to pick
one at a time.
3:50
This is important because we want to
them up one at a time and stack
3:53
them in the order that they say, so we can
this one, then this one, then
3:57
this one, then this one, and then this one.
3:59
Now we're going to deal the cards out in five cards––
we're dealing off
4:06
one set of five at a time we can put them anywhere we can go diagonally,
4:10
time we can go around the corners, right in the center next time. We can
4:15
just go like this
4:16
and then the
time we could just go just like this so the spectator can decide
4:21
how we deal the cards out.
4:23
So now the cards are really
up and once again we can have them tell us how
4:27
they want to
them, this one
top of this one, on
of this one,
top
4:31
this one,
this one.
4:33
And now we ask the spectator to give the cards a cut.
4:36
They
cut the cards anywhere they want and complete the
.
4:39
Now what we're going to do is, we're going to take off five cards, off the top.
4:42
One, two, three, four, five. We're
reverse the order
4:45
we're just going to
them over and spread them
so there's the
set
4:50
of Five. One, two, three, four, five.
4:53
We're going to flip them
and there's the second set of five cards,
4:58
right there and then one, two, three, four, five.
5:02
those out right there there's the
set of five cards.
5:07
One, two, three, four, five. That’ll be––here is the fourth set of five cards and right
5:15
over here. One, two, three, four, five.
5:17
This is the
set of five cards. Okay, so now what we're
to
is we're
5:25
going
the Spectator Number One, “Spectator Number One what pile
5:30
you see your card in?” Now the
thing we're going
do is we're
to look
5:34
for our
key card, the Two of Hearts.
5:36
We're going to spot the Two of Hearts is second
the
,
5:40
so whatever pile they tell us that their card is in, it’s going to be
5:45
the top.
5:46
So their card Spectator Number One’s card was the Nine of Spades.
5:50
They're going to see the Nine of Spades in this pile.
they tell us
5:53
that card is in this
5:55
we're going to say your card is the Nine of Spades––
5:58
from the
. Second spectator: his card was the King of Hearts. Our second
6:04
is the Four of Hearts.
6:06
We spot the Four of Hearts is
the bottom. We asked them what
their
6:10
card is in. Here's the King of Hearts right here.
6:12
They tell us that card is in this pile and immediately we know that it's the
6:16
King of Hearts because our second
card was on the
.
6:19
The
spectator’s card was the Eight of Diamonds. We're looking for a
6:23
key card. The Six of Hearts. It’s second
the bottom,
6:27
and
us that they see the Eight of Diamonds right here in this pile, and
6:31
the card
from the
of the Eight of Diamonds. We know that that's
6:34
their card.
6:35
The fourth spectator’s card is the Ace of Hearts. We're
a fourth key
6:39
card the Eight of Hearts.
6:41
The Eight of Hearts is on the top of this pile. They
their card is in
6:45
this pile
that their card is the
card, the Ace of Hearts. And the
6:50
spectator’s card is the Jack of Hearts. We're looking for our
6:54
card,
6:55
the Ten of Hearts. The Ten of Hearts is smack
the middle
this pile and
6:59
they tell us that the Jack of Hearts—or when they tell us their card is in this pile
7:03
and the card smack in the
of this
is the Jack of Hearts and we know that
7:07
their card is the Jack of Hearts.
7:09
Now, if they should happen to
the Two, Four, Six, Eight, or Ten of Hearts and
7:14
they
that that card is in this pile, then that's the card that they
7:18
selected. It will be the card.
7:20
The Two, Four, Six–– one of our key cards if that's the pile they point to, then that'll be the
7:25
card they selected. This is an ingenious trick.
7:28
It will have people completely baffled. It will
people because––how did you
7:33
do it?
7:34
How did you get all five cards right? I'm amazed. I think it's a brilliant card track.
