Ezy Magic (Tricks You will Do) HTML version
This trick is so good you will find that it is worth putting
together even if you have to buy a cheap pack of
playing cards, some glue and paper-clips so you can do
it! But you can use any odd playing cards you may
have laying around.
Just glue five together, all facing the same way - two
spot cards at each end and a picture card in the center.
Show your victim, er volunteer, the row of cards and
give them a large paper clip or a clothespin. Then turn
over the glued row of cards and ask your friend to "Just
pick the center card".
It may seem very easy, but when they have placed the
clothespin or clip to their satisfaction, you turn the row
of cards face up again. There is only about one chance
in a hundred they clipped the center card!
