Double Prediction Card Trick Tutorial

By Tom Interval

There are two old principles in card magic I love, and I’ve combined them to create this super-simple prediction effect. What is an effect? In magic parlance, an effect is basically what the audience sees. Or, more accurately, what the audience thinks it sees. So the effect of this trick is that the magician successfully predicts which two cards a volunteer randomly selects. As I said, it’s a simple trick, but don’t underestimate the power of simplicity. Sometimes the simplest tricks are the best. And you can do this one at the spur of the moment with a borrowed deck.
