Teaching my TrickThe name of my trick is called Kings and Queens.For the trick, I make the audience think that they are tryingto pick cards to find a match in card value. The trick is that Ihave already set up the matching cards for them.For this trick I use the following techniques:Sleight Set UpFalse Shuffle 7. Steps Before going in front of youraudience, you need to set upthe deck before performingyour trick. To set up thedeck, remove the kings andqueens from the deck.Place three queens andthree kings onto the top ofthe deck in the same order(king of clubs, queen ofclubs, king of hearts, queenof hearts, etc.). Place theremaining king and queen atthe bottom of the deck. 8. Steps While in front of youraudience, perform a falseshuffle with your set updeck to appear that you areshuffling the deck to makethe cards seem random. To perform a false shuffle,the bottom and top cardswill not be shuffled but it willappear that the completedeck is shuffled. 9. Steps Next, start making threepiles and ask someone inyour audience to tell youwhen to stop. When you aretold to stop, flip over thecards on top and stack theminto piles with the cardsremaining face up and putthem underneath theremaining cards in yourdeck. The Kings and Queens willremain together on top of theface up cards in the middleof the deck. 10. Steps Next, start making one pileuntil your audience tellsyou to stop.
