A Conversation for Easy-to-Perform Magic Tricks

Variation on the 21 trick

Post 1


Once you know that the card is in the exact middle, you can put the cards back in one stack (keeping that card in the middle). This makes the card the 11th from the top. Spell out ABRACADABRA, flipping over one card per letter. The last card flipped over will be the one that was chosen. This adds a little more 'magic' smiley - magic to the trick.

Yep, that's a good one. That variation of the trick is sometimes called The Abracadabra Card. In another variation, you can spell out "SIMSALABIM" and then flip over the next card, which is of course the chosen card. Guess what they tend to call that one? smiley - smiley
