Topic: Help identifying a packet trick
Message: Posted by: marc_carrion (Feb 9, 2021 07:35AM)
A friend showed me a set of cards and he can't remember the trick they were used for. They were in a card wallet, and no instructions or reference, he is just trying to remember the name to see if he can find the instructions.

There is a Royal Flush in Spades, with red backs
And 4 extra Ace of Spades all with different backs (and different than the royal flush back)
No rough/smooth material on the cards
No strippers, or short cards

That's all he has and he can't remember even the effect, do the royal flush changes to five ace of spaces (?) or five aces change to the royal flush (?) and is the changes on the backs a kicker (?)

If anyone has this set of cards and can point me in the right direction, I'll let him know.

Thanks!!

Sounds exactly like John Bannon’s “Royal Scam.”

Aces first turn all face down/all face up, then acquire all different backs, and finally turn into a royal flush.
