Hi,

I have a card trick that uses 17 cards cut in half ( 34 half cards). You have two assistants and show the first one all the cards one by one and then you show the other assistant all the cards one by one. They each take their card out and both half’s of the card match.

I have just found a set I made for this and cannot remember exactly how it goes or what it is called.

Does anyone know the name of this trick or how it is done please as I have forgotten and I always liked this?

Many thanks,

Mike

Are the cards "treated" in any special manner?

Maybe it is something akin to Bob Haskell's Half & Half or Split Deck. I THINK Split Deck was Haskell's(sp?) trick.

What do you mean by "they each take their card out?"

Could it be the trick where the spectator gets to decide whether you deal two cards or switch the two before putting them down?

This sounds like "Half Cut Coincidence" from Paul Daniels Adult Magic, written by Barry Murray. I don't have the book to hand at the moment, but I remember performing it a few times. My memory of it is the same as what you describe. The book is still available on the second hand market. It's a great read and worth buying.
