Two strong card effects with a mentalism theme.
The Third Degree
The first spectator thinks of a card, the second spectator picks a
card which is placed on the table under a glass, and then the third
spectator selects a card which is removed from the deck and then
visually changed into the card on the table, and the card under the
glass becomes the first spectator's thought of card.
Fifth Element (thought of card to pocket)
The spectator is shown five cards and asked to think of any one of
them. The five cards are placed one at a time into the spectators hand
and he is challenged to trap his chosen card as soon as he sees it by
placing his other hand on top. The magician then proves the spectator
wasn't quick enough by producing the thought of card from his pocket.
