The Four Card Monte is quite old (dates back at least to the 1940s), but in all that time it has rarely been used to its full potential. By making it in Jumbo Sized Cards and adding a couple of modern moves to the presentation, like Alex Elmsley's False Count, or Wiz Kid Rider's "Surprise Count" the trick goes up to a whole new level of mystery.

You might think that an Elmslet Count with jumbo cards is difficult, but not if you emply the techniques shown in the e-Book. The "Rider Surprise Count" is also very easy to do with Jumbo Cards.

The cards we use are easy to make yourself, printing them out on High Gloss Photo Supreme (72 lb) paper and gluing them together with rubber cement before you trim them with a paper cutter. The advantage to "Do-It-Yourself" magic is that you can create new card themes for any season or occasion.

I still have my original set of this trick, Four Card Monte. Good idea to bring it up to date with new handlings and moves. I bought it around 1959, it was one of my first fifty cent or one dollar priced tricks.
