Cheeky Flipper Card Trick

 

Photo description of the card tricks is shown at the base of this page

Preparation: Secretly flip the bottom card of the deck of cards.

Method: Fan the deck out but make sure that the spectators can't see the flipped up card on the bottom of the pack.  Now ask them to pick a card. While they are studying their card, flip the deck and because the bottom card had already been flipped it will now look like the top of the deck. Ask the spectator to put their chosen card face down back into the pack. Then distract them with some patter and eye contact while you discretely flip over the now top card in

the pack. This will mean that now, the spectators card will be the only one  facing the opposite direction from the other cards. You can now shuffle the pack as much as you like and still easily find their card..

Alternate ending : Drop the cards slowly from about one-foot up from the table or floor and when you see the upside-down card amongst the others ask if it is theirs.

How impressive and entertaining this trick is depends on your patter.
