A simple and easy, but, effective way of doing the famous, or infamous, Three Card Monte.
The effect where three cards are placed on a table and the 'money' card keeps appearing or disappearing!
Using the story-line of Field Marshal Montgomery's attempts, during WWII, to keep the enemy guessing where he was, you use the cards to illustrate the story and allow you to use a very bad pun.
You will need to buy a 'special' card or two to do this effect. But, these cards can be very easily found on the internet or obtained from your local friendly magic dealer. (Or you can make them yourself!)
