Totally Twisted by David Devlin

In the first version of this terrific packet trick, the four queens are removed from the deck, and are held face down. One at a time and in turn, each queen turns face up as in the "Twisting the Aces" routine.

After all of the queens have had their turn face up, and are all face down once again, the magician asks the spectator to name any one of the queens. He explains that whichever queen is named, it will magically turn face up. Let's assume that the named queen is the Queen of Spades. The performer snaps his fingers and says, "Would you be amazed if the queen you named is now face up?"

The cards are counted and the face up card is not the Queen of Spades. It is, in fact, a blank card that simply says, "The queen you named!" The magician says, "I know what you are thinking. You are wondering what if you had named a different queen. Well, in that case the trick would not have worked, because I don't have any other queens!" The packet is turned face up. The queens no longer exist! They are, in fact, blank cards!

The cards can be given away to the spectator to keep forever!

The second version is virtually impromptu and may be done with a borrowed deck. The differences in this version are that the queens turn into aces and the queens are reproduced with a flashy (but super simple) flourish. You can then go into any routine you wish, but since you have the four aces and the four queens out and they both have been produced magically, a "Reset" trick works nicely.

  • No gaffs (a blank face card is not a gaffed card)
  • No difficult sleight-of-hand.
  • The hardest sleight is an Elmsley Count
  • Setup takes less than about 5 seconds, so this is great for strolling and table hopping
  • No table needed (a spectator can hold the deck while the effect is performed)
  • PDF and links to videos makes this easy to learn
