S.H.I.EL.D. 3 (SelfWorking Honestly Impromptu Effect: card Location in the Deck - Vol. 3) is the third part of a collection of new, never-before-published card magic effects, designed by me and characterized by the fact that they can be performed with extreme ease, requiring no technique or manipulation by the magician, and being completely extemporaneous, performable even with a deck borrowed and shuffled by the audience (self-working and impromptu).
In addition, even the latter two effects can be performed entirely in "contactless mode" (or hands-off, as others would say): the magician, after handing the deck of cards to the spectator, will simply give him the instructions to follow and will not touch the cards again until the effect is concluded!
You will also manage to amaze many magicians as well as lay audiences with both since the effects described are based on little-known or otherwise well-hidden mathematical principles (magician fooler).
These are my 2 unpublished card effects included here:
After the magician has set aside on the table two mystery cards that he announces will then serve as a guide for the continuation of the experiment, two spectators shuffle the deck and deal the cards into five different packs. Having both of them choose one card at random from each of the two stacks where the magician places one of his cards on top, they are then lost within the entire deck that will eventually be reassembled.
Having revealed the importance of the magical number 10, the illusionist reveals that his cards were actually the 10 of Hearts and the 10 of Diamonds, which he invites the spectators to draw from the deck. But if it is true that 10 and 10 give 20, incredibly it will be by counting from the top of the deck 20 cards that both spectators will find their card again!
The magician draws a pair of cards from a deck given to a spectator to shuffle, without showing them but announcing that they will be used shortly thereafter to complete the experiment.
The deck is then cut by the spectator into three parts, one card from the first bunch is chosen by him and immediately dispersed into the middle bunch.
After reassembling the deck and cutting it several times by relying on both chance and the will of the spectator and the magician, the two previously drawn cards are revealed, but they would seem to have little to do with the chosen card until the illusionist explains that they represent nothing more than the "precise instructions" for finding the spectator's card.
In fact, following these directions from them, the spectator at the end will be left with one card and magically discover it to be exactly his card.
