Sidewalk Shuffle by Martin Lewis This effect was originally based on Joe Riding's "Three Card Trick with Four Cards" which was marketed by Ken Brooke in England. However, the method is quite different.This is in three phases. The first two are similar, but with variations in handling. The third phase has an unexpected "knock-out" finale. In the first two phases three blank cards and an ace are shown. A blank is placed aside face down, and the ace put between the other two blanks. A spectator fails to find the ace because the three cards are shown one by one to be blank, and the ace is on the table. The third time the spectator usually guesses that the ace is on the table. But it is shown to be really a blank card, and the cards in the hand are shown to be ALL ACES!

Six Mix by Larry West Four cards are spread face down. Performer states that one of the cards is an odd one. He turns them face up and shows number 6 printed on the face and deal s it face down on the table mentioning the color of the number. He shows that the next card is also a 6 of the same color and deals that face down on the first card. The third card is also a 6 and performer deals it face down on the other two. He says that the fourth card is the odd card and shows that it is a 9, the same color as the sixes. He deals it face down in the other cards. He then mixes the cards and has spectator name a number from one to four. Spectator does and performer deals the cards face down on the table, placing the one at the spectators number forward in front of the other three. Performer says that it would be amazing if the spectator had selected the number 9, the odd card. As he says this, he slides the card around end to end. By this time the spectators are sure the performer is really trying to get away with a bold trick, as everyone knows that a 6 upside down is a 9. Performer states that if the spectator had selected the first card, he would have gotten a 6 and he turns it face up to show it. Then he turns up the other two, and they are the 7 and 8 in different colors. When he turns up the selected cord, it is indeed the nine in a completely different color.

Think A Number by Ken deCourcy Here's a fine pocket trick that is far more than just that. It can be presented as a mental mystery with a spectator assisting you, and as such is ideal for small shows .... it can even be presented on-stage if you wish, the spectator acting as a "one-man committee on behalf of the audience". The spectator is handed a number of cards bearing figures on each side. He shuffles these cards around and places these in any way he wishes on the table, and with any sides up. The number on both sides of the cards are different .... it would appear to be absolutely impossible for the magician to have any idea whatsoever of the total. Although the performer has had his back turned throughout, he can divine the total of the faces showing! Cards come in a neat plastic wallet, a novel Card Discovery is included, a Card Location; a smashing Magazine test, - Three copies of a magazine are shown, one is freely chosen, a number is arrived at, and yet you reveal the chosen word, and an excellent prediction. Ideal pocket trick.

Three Card Monte by Patrick Page The effect is the normal three card monte, in which the spectators are invited to keep their eye on one particular card, but somehow always seem to lose track of it. This version is based on a three card trick performed by English street magicians for many years. One or two extra moves have been added plus a climax, in which the card they have been watching vanishes completely.

You show a packet of 4 cards, three of them with pictures of walnut shell and one with a picture of a pea. The spectators try to follow the pea as you deal the cads face down but they fail every time. Finally, only the fourth card remains. You turn it over and find it BLANK. The pea has vanished!

 Whereisit? by Mario Palhinha Three cards are fanned and spectator is asked to think of a color ~ red or black. The three cards are then squared and handed to the spectator with the request that he hold them firmly. A pocket handkerchief is thrown over the spectator's hands and the cards. Magician asks spectator to name color thoiaght of. When this is done, hank is removed, and spectator is holding only two cards — the third card has vanished.
