The video does show it. Can't believe how many people don't pay attention.

Hi Jim,

I’m obviously guilty of not paying attention. Can you tell us the time on the video we can find the explanation for the numbers that don’t work?

I am also interesting to know the time on the video we can find the explanation for the numbers that don’t work? Thanks

Of all the card tricks you could possibly perform and you resort to this nonsense. Smile

This trick is interesting... It is a sort of challenge to try to improve it ... ;-).
But I agree there are many other very good card tricks to perform.

John Carey kind of took it as a challenge to try and improve it and shows his version in the recent Alakazam Academy series.
It's an interesting take on it and very good IMO.

There really ARE solutions to the problems created for this effect by some of the numbers spectators may choose. The links provided above to the Penguin website give at least some of these solutions (including one by me). I did not find anything by Rick Lax on the video that addressed the solutions, which I find surprising.

I've shown this around now more than a few times and it has always played very strong.

If you get a number you perceive as problematic, ask for another.

As for me, this trick works - is strong and entertaining.

There's a trick called "Hidden Power" in "My Best Self-Working Card Tricks" by Karl Fulves. It is similar to Rick Lax's trick, though it's not a transposition.

Let's imagine that the first spectator choose number 21... that is between 20 and 40 Smile
Now, according to the instructions given by Rick Lax, you can imagine that the second spectator takes 25 cards off the deck...
the trick will not work...



An old post but.....

To clarify...

The first spec chooses 21 and yes, that is indeed between 20 and 40! You compute your secret number, however, the number 20 is the maximum number you tell them to remove from the deck ("...less than 20" if the first spec chooses a number less than 25), otherwise you won't have enough cards to count when going through the deck later.
