Split Up by Docc Hilford
"My final thoughts are can be summed up as this; it is a fun card trick with a cute premise. If you are a restaurant worker or close up magician this is worth a look. " -Christian & Katalina, MyLovelyAssistant
Why does love have to hurt so bad?
Here's a trick designed for walk around, table magic and live on-the-street performances. It's direct mentalism, but remains novel and funny. There are six different climaxes; a good reason why this trick has already become a favorite of close-up performers everywhere.
The mentalist and a woman are at a table where he explains. "My friend's a magician and he just split up with his long time girlfriend. She insisted that everything they own be split evenly. She even cut his cards. WITH A MEAT CLEVER! But I told him they might get back together. Let me show you why I think that."
He displays a deck of cards, cut in half, right through the middle. The woman shuffles them while he writes tow notes. The woman takes about 26 of the half cards and the mentalist uses those remaining. "You're the girlfriend and I'll be my friend" The cards are mixed again and both people choose ANY unknown card from their half.
Although the woman's choice was free and from a well shuffled deck, a series of SIX quick and startling climaxes follow:
- The first note predicts the mentalist's random choice.
- The second note predicts the woman's choice.
- Both parties chose the same card!
- Both half cards match precisely.
- All 50 half cards in the deck are different.
- The only two halves that match are the chosen cards!
Count'em SIX climaxes in 60 seconds!
