The ordinary card trick: This is the trick where you ask "Is this your card?" First take a normal deck of cards and turn the bottom one over. Spread the deck out so the volunteer can't see the bottom card. Have them pick. While they are looking at their card, secretly flip the deck over. Then have them put their card back. Put the deck behind your back and flip over the bottom card. Then flip the entire deck over again. Their card will now be the only card face up.

Another trick: Take 2 cards, and, when nobody is looking, rip one card halfway (not sideways) and show someone the cards while hiding the rip. Fold the card in half the long way so the rip is facing you. Slide the inner card so the person opposite of you can see it, but on the last slide, move half the card under one of the ripped sides. Then adjust the cards so the rip is hard to see, then quickly flip over that half so that the number side is showing, and then do the same sliding motion as before.

First go to the person you are doing the trick on. Fan out the cards, sercetly putting your fingers evenly spaced under the cards. Ask the classic question "Pick a card, any card." The person will then pick a random card, memorize it and then put it back randomly. Here is why you need your fingers spaced underneath the card...Not only will you feel where they pulled their card out...you will feel where they put their card in. After they put their card back...pull deck to the side, where the person cannot easily see what you are doing. Pretend you are suffling your deck..while really you are leaving a finger on their card..then bring it to the top. For dramactic use only...flick the top of the deck and pull their card out..and ask "Is this your card?"

To perform the card spinning trick, hold the card between your thumb and index finger, then quickly flick your wrist while releasing the card. The flicking motion will cause the card to spin as it travels through the air.
