A deck of cards is spread and freely displayed back and front. Four cards are selected at random by a spectator and then placed in a fan on the table. A snap of the fingers and when the fan is lifted, four coins are seen to have instantly appeared underneath.
As a lead in to a four coin matrix routine this is ideal as it creates an unexpected and sleight free intro. You just need a regular deck, which you need to prepare once (takes about 15 minutes), and four small coins (10ps or US quarters).
Remember – no palming or sleight of hand is required.
