The magician introduces a deck of cards and an empty card box. After this, he places the four Aces into the box. The performer shuffles the deck and asks a spectator to count the cards randomly on the table from the shuffled deck and then to make four piles from the counted cards and to place an Ace on top of each pile. The spectator opens the box to bring them out and to place them on the piles but the Aces are not in the box: there is only a blank face card with a writing on its face: IT’S DONE. THANK YOU! After this, they verify that the Aces are really on the top of the four piles.
The performer shows eight red backed Jokers and one by one, four Jokers turn face up and their backs change into blue. The magician tables the four blue backed Jokers. The faces of other four Jokers disappear and their backs change into blue too. The backs of the four tabled Jokers change into four different backs.
A spectator selects a card from the face up deck and then puts it back face down into the face up deck. The performer spreads the deck on the table and asks the spectator what she thinks which her card is. The spectator says that the face down card is her card but when she turns it face up she sees that on this card there is a writing: ‘The chosen card is in the magician’s pocket’. After this the magician produces the selection from his pocket.
