The McCombical Deck trick uses two Bicycle decks- a RED one and a BLUE one. You start by making a prediction of the card you think your spectator will choose. You remove the prediction card from the RED deck and place it face down in plain view.
Next, you let the spectator make a selection from the BLUE deck. You mention that you hope it will match your prediction. You pick up the BLUE deck and show the audience the faces of the cards. The audience can see the cards (your spectator cannot see them)- and they see that ALL THE CARDS IN THE BLUE DECK ARE THE SAME! You've apparently rigged the trick- and apparently your spectator has no choice!
Fully confident that you have made a match, you turn over the spectator's card.But wait! It's NOT one of those identical cards from the BLUE deck! It's a different card! How did THAT happen? And now it apparently won't match your prediction! You are a magician in trouble!
But you ARE a magician, right? You pick up your prediction card- and it MATCHES that card selected by the spectator after all!
Not only is this a hilarious routine, it's quite astounding magic as well. You'll get a lot of mileage out of this one!
Best of all- IT'S EASY! Yes, if you can spread out a deck of cards, you can do the trick! The deck does all the work, and you get all the applause!
These are Poker size Bicycle decks.
