Once in a Hundred Years After a spectator shuffles the deck, you spread it face down and he freely touches four cards at different positions. You cleanly strip out the four selections and the spectator agrees that those are the cards he selected. You then hand him the deck and ask him to find his favorite Ace and put it in the middle of the four selected cards, which you hold in a face-down fan. The spectator can’t find any Aces in the deck and you say: “This happens only once in twelve years. You just happen to be passing by” as you turn over the selections to reveal that they are the four Aces.

Crossed Destinies This is Rafael’s take on a rarely performed Vernon trick. Three coins pass in succesion from one hand to the other in a very direct way, with no superfluous moves, counts or displays. A trick that has fooled many experts.

69 A card is selected and lost in the deck. You ask the spectator what his card was and, after a magic gesture to make the card rise, you show the top card, say the Six of Spades. The spectator tells you that you are wrong because his card was the Nine of Spades. You say, “Ah, it’s upside down”. As you rotate the card 180º with its face towards the audience the 6 is seen to visibly turn into the selected 9. You finally say, “And that’s my favorite trick with the Joker” and show that the card has transformed into a Joker.

Countdown Four Kings are laid out in T-Formation. One of them change places with another card to join the main King. The same happens again with another King. When people expect the last King to join the main packet, all the Kings surprisingly appear together in one of the other piles. Michael Skinner regarded this as the best version of the O’Henry Assembly plot he ever saw.

Bookmarks Two decks are shuffled by you and a spectator. You insert a card halfway in a book, as a bookmark, back to the audience, as a prediction. A spectator thinks of a card, finds it in the other deck that he shuffled himself and which is spread on the table. You insert that card, face to the audience, in another book in front of the first. You make another prediction, inserting a second card in the first book, besides your other prediction. You take the spectator’s deck and deal cards face up until he stops you. The next card is inserted, face to the audience, next to the first selection. The book with your prediction is turned over to show that you two predictions match.

Marmalade Poker As you riffle the deck, you insert your right fingers in it and take out four cards, which happen to be the four Kings. Although the Kings are left out, when you do it again, you pull out four Kings once again. Then you decide to mix all the Kings and deal two hands of poker, one for an imaginary opponent, and one for yourself. When the opponent’s cards are turned over, they are found to be four indifferent cards. Then you say, “but I don’t like to win so easy”. You proceed to turn your hand over to show it consists of the four Aces.
