The classic "magician in trouble" style of trick is always a big hit!
Show a large frame stand, and a jumbo playing card.This jumbo card is your prediction of which card the volunteer will choose.You show the face of the card, and then place it back-side-out into the frame.In this case, the prediction card is seen to be the Six of Hearts.Let your spectator choose a card from an ordinary deck (which not included- use your own deck).In this case, the volunteer chose the 8 of Clubs.
The audience saw the prediction, and now think the magician is in trouble!They think you predicted the Six of Hearts, yet your volunteer chose the 8 of Clubs!
Here comes the magical part!When you remove the card from the frame and turn the card around-the card is now the 8 of Clubs!
So simple!No skill needed! Shows up well for a small group or classroom too!
