The ace assembly effect is a plot that has been done to death in the annals of card magic. The following is my version of an ace assembly effect with a twist at the end. The method is so simple that even a beginner can master and perform it.
Four aces are dealt face down next to each other. Three indifferent cards are added to each pile. The magician says that he will attempt to move all the aces from the different piles into one pile. After some mumbo jumbo, the aces have disappeared from three of the piles. When the fourth pile is turned over, to everyone's surprise, it contains ... the four kings. The magician calls attention to the rest of the deck on the table. When it is spread, the four aces are found reversed and together in the deck. This can be done with a borrowed deck also.
As a bonus, learn 4 simple and useful sleights that can be put to everyday use.
