Need an EASY and FOOLPROOF way to force a card?
Don't have time to learn the skill required to do it? The 50-50 Force Deck is your answer!
"Forcing a card" is the skill of making your spectator think he has a free choice in choosing a card from the deck, when in reality you have secretly made him choose a particular specific card. Many, many card tricks depend on the spectator choosing the right card. You can either spend many hours learning this skill, or you can INSTANTLY have this skill by using this special deck!
The 50-50 Force Deck is a gimmicked deck lets you force a card automatically. Here's the secret: "50-50 deck" means that half of the cards are the same card, and the other half are all different cards. By keeping all the same cards at the top half of the deck, and making your spectator chooses from that half, you force the spectator to choose a specific card (the card that makes up half the deck). Brilliant!
The deck shown in the photo forces the 8 of Spades; the one in the video demo forces the Ace of Clubs. You will probably get a different force card, but the deck works the same way. (Sorry, you can't choose the force card you will get- it depends on what is IN STOCK. You CAN tell us if there is a card you DO NOT want as the force card (if you already have a force deck with that force card, for example). Mention that in the "Comments" box on the Checkout page when you are completing your order.
This is a Poker size deck, and matches Bicycle decks.
WHICH FORCE DECK IS FOR YOU?
- ONE-WAY FORCE DECK
All the cards are the same, except for the first face-up card. You can show the top card, but you will spread the deck face down to have your spectator choose a card. Of course, you are forcing him to take the card you want- all the cards are the same! This is the most foolproof forcing deck.
- TWO-WAY FORCE DECK
There are only two different cards in the deck- half the cards are one value, and the other half is a second value. By making the spectator choose a card from the TOP half, you are making him choose one card, and then you can have him choose a second card from the other half. This deck is great if you have two spectators and you want them to choose two different cards that are forced.
- 50-50 FORCE DECK
Half the deck is made up of all different cards, and half is made up of the SAME card.
The idea is to be able to "show" an ordinary deck by spreading the part of the deck with all different cards, but making your spectator select a card from the part of the deck that is the same card- the card you are forcing them to take.
