An incredibly fair new two packet "B'wave" effect with a killer ending that nobody will see coming.
Two packets of cards are introduced: one red and one blue, each containing four cards. The magician asks that the audience to imagine that each packet contains a four-of-a-kind, say the four twos. The blue packet is shown to a spectator and clearly contains all four twos. The packet is turned face down and given a quick mix. The magician asks the spectator to choose any number from 1 to 4, 1 being the top card of the packet, and 4 being the bottom card. The spectator notes the card at their number, say the 2 of clubs. Attention now turns to the red packet. Only one two is face up in that packet: the 2 of clubs! Their selection also has a different colored back, and the other three red cards are blank. Claiming that the spectator is in a hypnotic state, attention goes back to the blue packet, where all four cards have now changed into 2s of clubs. The packet soon reverts to having all different twos, but with a twist: all four backs aren't all blue anymore, but four different colors.
- Incredibly fair selection; The card number they name is the number you show them (no funny moves)
- No magician's force
- Easy to do, only basic card sleights required
- Ends completely clean (all cards may be examined)
- Includes a bonus effect
