Instructions for the INVISIBLE DECK 14-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 14. Spades and Hearts are back to back, Clubs and Diamonds are back to back. Ace’s (1) are paired with Kings (13), 2’s are paired with Queens (12), 3’s are paired with Jacks (11).

All Spades and Diamonds are facing one way and the Hearts and Clubs the other.  Examples of pairings would be the Seven of Spades and Seven of Hearts. Spades are paired with Hearts and the pairing is equal to 14.

 

Set Up: When you first open your deck the cards maybe in order. You can go ahead and mix the cards up but keep them in their pairs and keep them facing the same way direction, (Spades and Diamonds facing one way and Hearts and Clubs the other).

 

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. Now have the spectator mentally take their chosen card and turn it face down in the deck. Have spectator name their chosen card. Let’s say spectator names the Four of Diamonds. Take the deck back from the spectator and open it up, pull the cards out so that the Hearts & Club 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, lightly 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.
