Meanderings with a Marked Deck by Steve Sanders

Don't tell anybody but sometimes magicians use marked cards. Apart from pick a card and tell the spectator the name of that card what else can you do with them? Here are five routines to use with any type of marked deck.

What a Coincidence: A routine where unseen cards are put on the table, you go first, the spectator follows and each of the cards coincidentally match.

Centre Stage: The cards are mixed, the spectator cuts, without touching the cards you can instantly announce the name of the 26th card, or centre card of the deck. Simple.

Pair Enough: 'Mysterious Pairs' from Hoffmann's More Magic is put on steroids, when you attempt to discover the identity of three spectators cards with a kicker ending of the last pair of cards fusing together.

Oscillations: Using a pendulum you are able to divine the spectators chosen card.

Two for One: Instantly, well almost instantly, you can tell a spectator how many cards are in the pile he/she has just cut off the deck. The spectator can then take any card from that pile which you can instantly, well almost instantly, identify.
