The magician presents a blue deck of cards. The backs and fronts of the cards reveal it is a 52 card regular deck.
The deck is placed face up on the table. This is the last time the magician will touch the deck.
The spectator is asked to cut the deck around the mid point, and place the cut-off pile alongside the other pile. They then select one of the two piles, and the other pile is placed to one side.
The magician asks the spectator to deal the cards face-up from the face-up pile, and stop at ANY card they wish. Which they do. A genuinely free choice.
The selection is placed away from the rest of the deck, and the magician now takes the remaining cards and specifies that truly, the spectator had a free choice, and the card they chose isn’t a duplicate of any of the other blue backed cards.
However, upon turning over the selection, the spectator is gobsmacked to see that not only is the card a red backed one, it also has their name written across it’s back
(or any message you want).
They suddenly feel that perhaps their free will isn’t as free as they’d thought…
