Growing up, David Blaine was one of my hero’s. Some of the trick he did were just unbelievable. When I first saw him, I knew I wanted to know how to do magic card tricks. After many years of being a magician I have learned how to do magic card tricks and I will be showing you one of my personal favorites called out of this world.
Out Of This World
This is a great trick to do while waiting for your food at a restaurant or just relaxing at a party. Once this trick is done, it will literally drive people crazy trying to figure out how it was done. And you just get to sit there and smile.
What the Trick Looks Like To The Crowd
You hand the deck of cards to a volunteer and tell them to separate the black cards from the red cards by putting them face down on the table without looking at them. In the middle of the trick you tell them to stop. You then say “you are starting to second guess yourself, why don’t we switch it up a little bit. I want you to put the reds on the black pile and the blacks on the red pile.” Have them finish putting the cards on the two piles. Once they are done tell them to flip over both piles and look through them. sure enough, all red cards and black cards are separated.
When I first decided to learn how to do magic card tricks, I learned out of this world. It was so easy I had to share it with you guys.
- Start off by separating all the reds from the blacks. Put the black cards on top of the red cards. (make sure you do this without your audience watching)
- Next, hand the deck to a spectator and tell him or her to put all the cards face down on the table but separate the reds from the blacks without looking at the cards
- Once they have put down 24 cards tell them to stop. At this point they have put down 24 black cards because you had all the black cards on top. There will be one more black card left followed by 25 red cards. Tell them “you are starting to second guess yourself so we will switch piles. We will now put the reds on the black pile and the blacks on the red pile” take the final black card and put it face up on the red pile saying “here is your new black pile”. Then take a red card and put it on top of the black pile saying “here is your new red pile”
- Have them finish putting the cards down. Once they are finished have them flip over the cards and look through them. If done correctly, the red cards and the black cards will be separated.
