Instructions for the Invisible Deck / 13-count

Secret: When inspecting your deck you will find that the cards adhere to each other as pairs and are back to back. When fanning through the deck keep a little pressure on the cards, this will keep them in their pairs. Lighter pressure will allow them to separate. The deck is arranged in a manner where cards are back to back and paired in specific order.
How this deck works. Every pairing equals thirteen. Spades are back to back with Hearts and Clubs are back to back with Diamonds. Ace are paired with Queens, Jacks are paired with Two’s, and Kings are paired with other Kings.
All the even cards face one way and all the odd cards the other.
Examples of pairings would be the Seven of Spades and Six of Hearts. Spades are paired with Hearts and the pair equal thirteen.

Simple Effect: Approach the spectator and hand them the deck of cards, still in its box. Ask spectator to hold it up.
Ask spectator to think of a card, any card, from the deck. Have spectator name the card. Let’s say spectator names the Three of Diamonds. Take the deck back from the spectator and open it up so that the even cards are facing up.
Search through the deck for the Ten of Clubs, explaining that all the cards in this deck are face up, except for one. When you get to the Ten of clubs use little to no pressure to separate the pair revealing one face down card. Have the spectator take the card from the deck and have spectator turn it over revealing it is their card.
