I just use this one and I don't know what it is called. Reverse second and third card from top of pack. Pull cards off face of pack and ask for spec. to call stop. When they do reverse upper portion of deck and place it back to back with lower portion. Spread cards slowly and first face down card will be the force card.

Just my opinion, but I wouldn't call that "best."

A pop eyed popper deck works very well and appears very fair to the spec. Just a thought.

I use a Jumbo Pop Eyed popper in one of my stage routines. As the previous esteemed posters have noted, it works great.

When I grow up I want to know what the pop eyed popper is and I want to be esteemed.

For large cards, it's hard to beat a rough/smooth setup for forcing.

I am talking about an ungimmicked force. Who has a better method than the one I posted?

Use a simple cross cut force for a large/jumbo deck of cards. The force is effective with regular cards, and even more effective with jumbos. Like anytime you use a cross cut, you just need a few seconds of time misdirection before showing the force card.

I vote for rough and smooth or a block of duplicates on top. Spread the block and have someone just touch any one.

Of course, the trick itself will usually dictate what the best mehtod is.

Some methods won't make sense for a given effect.

A glide force, if you have a table, will work just fine.

BTW, if you don't have a table you can always use spectator's hands

The easiest never fail and always fool 'em force with jumbo's is to have the force card face down on top of the deck. Fan the deck face down and ask your helper to "touch" any card. Then ask him/her to remove it from the deck, but to "be sure to keep it face down so I can't see it." note: as you close the fan get a break under the top (to be forced) card.

Almost immediately take the selected (indifferent) card and place it face down on top of the deck. "You could have selected any card, but this is the one you wanted, is that right, Mary?" Now pick up the top two cards as one and show the selected card to your helper and the rest of the audience.

Presented in a matter-of-fact manner this simple handling works everytime!

Actually the reverse card ide in the first post is good but I use a double back card, which can be 2 cards glued face to face. Can then also be used as a single cut force, like the cut deeper but with on cut.

Walgreen's sells jumbo decks that are in between a regular deck and a standard jumbo deck. With little practice you can perform many of the sleights you can do with a regular deck. So hindu force, riffle force, bluff pass, slip force ....ect. are all possible.

Julie,

I use the force you mentioned with full size jumbos quite often and it works great. I use it with regular size cards all the time. It is a very clean and fair force.

El Duco sell Anglo Cards, that are twice the size of a poker deck, with indices that are much larger than on Jumbo Bicycles, and allow you to do many sleights. I understand that they have a nice finish on them, too.

The Cross-Cut force is simple yet poweful esp. in this context.

Have card to be forces, face up 2nd from top.
Have spectator pick up a block and turn them face up and place on top.
