The fellow replies that he was a printer that specialized in printing business sards. He shows the judge 4 blank cards. The judge asks him to answer the following questions..."Name the first president of the U.S." The man correctly names George Washington. "Name the war between the States". The felllow replies "The Civil War". His Honor then asks him to give the name of the 200 year celebration taking place in 1976 .... The man thinks for a minute .... looks at the judge and says "Your Honor, I know what it is but I don't know how to say it may I show you with the 4 cards I am holding ?" The judge says "Please do" and the fellow proceeds to show each card blank on both sides and places them on the tab le. The Judge saya " I don't understand what you are trying to tell me". With this the applicant turns each card orer showing the BISON, the 10, the TELL. This puzzles the Judge for a minute he finally realizes the man means"BICENTENNIAL" !!!!

Brainsrorm by Larry Becker Anyone shuffles a deck of cards. The performer makes a prediction on a slip of paper ... folds and places it in an empty card case. A spectator removes the Joker (the only one in the deck) and shoves is FACE UP anywhere in the FACE DOWN deck. All the cards ABOVE the Joker are counted. The performer makes a second prediction on a slip of paper ... folds it .. and places it in the card case. Now, the card BELOW the Joker is noted. Both of the performer predictions are removed by the spectator and read aloud. They both prove to be 100% accurate. The performer has somehow predicted in advance how far down in the deck the Joker would be Inserted ... and also the Identity of the card immediately below the Joker. A DOUBLE PREDICTION that will completely baffle the most astute observer. The effect is simple... direct... and requires no skill.

Color Monte by Phil Temple Three cords are shown, two have red spots, one has a blue spot. Performer explains that this is a gambling game. If you can find the blue spot you win a dollar; if you're wrong, you lose a dollar. Performer is going to show how he got taken. He shows blue card on top- He turns it face down and places it on the bottom. When he shows bottom card, it's a red one. He shows top card... it's red. He shows middle one... it, too is red. This means so far that he has lost three dollars because every time he picks the card that he thinks is the blue one, he gets the red. So performer says, perhaps you think that I donm't even have a blue one. He shows that bottom card is now a blue one.. .so, he's lost another dollar. Then he says that if it's on the bottom, it can't be on top. Wrong again, because there it is. Then he shows it also in center. So tar, he's lost six dollars. Suspecting that the gambler is using more than three cards, he counts them on the table showing just three. Now he's lost seven dollars. So the gambler sows one card has blue spot, other has red. Tell color of third card and we're even. Performer says he was wrong again and ended up losing $14. Performer turns over third card as he says this and it has $14 printed on it.

Flushtration by Bro. John Hamman 5 cards are spread to show a Royal Flush. Magician explains that 4 have Blue Backs and 1 has a red back. This he shows to be true and the Ace is obviously the Red backed card. The cards are again spread face up and he tells them the object is to pick one of the Blue back cards. This should be easy since the odds are 4 to 1 in favor.As an example, he removes the 10 and places it face up on the table. The 4 remaining cards are shown one at a time. They are all Blue Backed. He must have picked the Red card. He returns the 10 to the packet and now places the Queen face up on the table. The 4 remaining cards are shown and they are Blue. "We'll try one more time". Queen is returned to the packet and the Jack is placed face up on the table. He now explains that you could not find the Blue because he told a small lie. We do not have 4 Blues and 1 red..The cards are shown one at a time and they are all Red Backs. Spectator turns over the Jack and it is niether Red or Blue but has an entirely different back. SURPRISE!
