Break the Ice at Those Boring Xmas Parties

With Christmas just looming around the corner and all those boring office parties and family get-togethers that you are going to have to attend, why not take some action to make them a little bit more exciting and break the ice and lighten up the atmosphere. It takes very little knowledge and only a small amount of practice to perform some very basic tricks and with two or three of these in your arsenal you will be able to keep people entertained and puzzled for a long time. Not only that but the ladies love the air of mystery and theatricals surrounding a magician.

You'll probably be thinking right now "how would I go about doing that?"

Well, one of the easiest and simplest ways is to learn a few simple card tricks and you will find people will soon be flocking around you to see you work your magic.

You may be surprised to find that there is a card trick that you can learn in about five seconds which will amaze and stun people. You don't have to be a David Blaine to be able to perform some amazing card tricks with only a little bit of practice and you will find yourself to be the centre of attraction very quickly with people clamouring to find out how you do your tricks. But, of course, you're a professional and you will never reveal them.

In a minute I'll show you a card trick that you can do immediately, which takes no practice and although so very simple will leave people baffled as to how you performed the trick.

There are also a number of very basic techniques which are very simple to learn and which, with a little bit of practice, will enable you to apply those techniques to a number of tricks resulting in different outcomes.

As promised, here's a little teaser of what you can do, and it is only one of hundreds of different tricks that you can learn in just a few minutes to stun and amaze your family and friends.

This one I call the "Worlds Easiest Card Trick"...

I will warn you now, by the time you have read to the end of this trick you will not believe that it is actually possible to do but let me assure you that it does work. Don't believe me? Read through to the end, grab yourself a pack of cards and try it - you'll be amazed.


Start off with a deck of cards and ask the person to thoroughly shuffle the deck. Then you ask him to name any two cards, just with a face value of the cards without any suit, i.e., Jack and nine.

Place the deck of cards onto the table and pretend to concentrate whilst having your hand or fingers touching the top of the deck. Then ask your spectator to turn over the cards himself and to shuffle through them until he comes to the two cards that he named which, to his surprise he will find in the pack together.

That's it - the trick is complete.

So now you're thinking to yourself how does that work, I haven't actually had to do anything. The trick works by probability alone, the only thing you have to do is to add some theatricals by pretending to concentrate hard.

When the Spectator in your audience names the cards although he is only picking two he is, in fact, naming eight cards that exist in the pack as he is not required to pick any suit.

The theory is that out of those eight cards, jack of spades, jack of hearts, jack of clubs and the jack of diamonds together with the nine of hearts, nine of clubs, nine of diamonds and nine of hearts, that at least one of the Jack's will be next to one of the nines.

Would I lie to you? grab a pack of cards and give it a go, you don't even need an audience to test this one.

On average, about one in 10 times that you try the trick there will be a card between the two cards that the Spectator picked. If that occurs just redo the trick after telling the Spectator that you weren't concentrating hard enough and you will find that it will work.

That's how simple card tricks can be. Go out now and amaze your family!!
