How to Perform the Matching Card Trick
Magician: Can you shuffle the cards please?
Female: What’s up?
Magician: And I like you to — from the top of the bottom, deal the cards on to the table one at a time.
Female: Like that?
Female: All of them?
Magician: And I like you to stop. I’d like you to stop anytime you like to.
Female: Oh. How’s that?
Magician: You do that fine. You notice I’ve got — there’s another card on that below. Could you turn that over? Then you can see through it. Turn the envelope over. See if it’s — can you see the card right there?
Female: I can see a little bit, yeah.
Magician: It's a bit translucent, the envelope, isn’t it? Could you open the envelope?
Female: I will.
Magician: And you’ll notice it’s from a blue deck, my other pack at home.
Turn it over. Let’s see.
Magician: Thanks again.
Female: It’s great.
Magician: Now the secret to that effect is that one of the cards from a red back deck have been removed and is hidden under another envelope.
Let the person deal the cards off to the table. They deal them as many as they like them, they stop at any card. Let’s say they stop there.
Al right. You pick up the envelope and show them that you’ve got a card inside. And what they don’t know is that you have a card outside which has been taken from this pack and is a match to the one inside the envelope. Okay. And you just drop it down and say, “Look. There’s a card in there. Turn that envelope over. You can almost see it through there.”
