Dan Tong, you may know him as the maker of the Paper Hat Tear, Egg Bags, and more, but he is also known as an underground legend in the world of magic. He is always working on effects, routines and ideas. He continues to tweak an effect until he feels it’s ready to present before a live audience.
Thus we have “Law of Order.” This close-up miracle offers a double punch routine. This gem of a card effect is one you will enjoy performing and it will fool your audience. It is a “worker”!
Effect: A spectator is asked to mentally select any number from 1 to 52. A second spectator selects a card from a shuffled deck, remembers it and returns it to the deck. The performer spreads the deck, face down, on the table. He then removes two facedown cards from the spread. One card represents the suit of the selected card and the other card represents the value. The mentally selected number is now revealed and with deck in hand, cleanly and fairly counted to and the selected card is at that number.
There are no slights to master or counting systems to remember. The special deck supplied does all the work for you.
You will need to read the directions a couple of times to totally understand the workings of the deck and the routine. After you understand it, it’s just a matter of rehearsing the presentation and you will be ready to amaze your audience with this gem.
The above effect is but one of a number that are possible with this deck. Included as a PDF download are 12 additional routines. As you learn to use this deck, many more effects will come to light.
