The Most Amazing Card Trick
Sooper Dooper Looper
McFiki's Jumbo Aces
Giant Soul Mates
by Jim Gerrish with P. Dennis
Based on U.F. Grant's 1947 Kard-U-Reka,
both Gerrish and Dennis came up with variations that add
new life to the old master's trick.
Two decks of cards are shuffled by the
magician and four spectators, all of whom participate in
shuffling the cards. One spectator freely chooses one of
the decks for the spectators, and one for the magician,
and the decks are placed into boxes labeled MY CARDS for
the Magician and YOUR CARDS for the spectators just so
there is no doubt. The magician's back is turned so he
can't see what the spectators do next. The magician's MY
CARDS deck is placed on the table in full sight while the
spectators' cards from the YOUR CARDS box are cut by each
of the four spectators into four piles, and from each of
the four piles, each spectator digs around and freely
chooses one card face down. The four freely chosen and
unseen cards are then held by the four spectators so no
one can see what cards have been chosen.
The magician turns around and removes
his cards from the MY CARDS box. He can't read the
spectator's minds; they haven't looked at the cards they
freely chose and no one knows what they are. Instead, he
will have to depend on Second Sight as he removes four
cards from his deck of cards. One by one, the cards are
turned over together to reveal that he has correctly
divined all four cards freely and randomly chosen by each
of the four spectators.
Also included, Jim's new (2019)
Three-Deck Switch Box and how to build one from scratch
or buy one and convert the box (your choice).
