# How to Do the Psychic Prediction Card Trick

## Instructions

• 1

Start up the performance by giving the deck a number of cuts so as to make the spectator feel that you have placed all the cards at random.

• 2

Glimpse the two cards at the top of the deck while shuffling like for instance one is the Queen of Spades and the other just above it is 5 of Diamonds. Remember that your prediction will be based on these two cards.

• 3

Now as you know the two top cards, make a prediction to the spectator by telling him that you have chosen Queen of Diamonds and you will come up with a Queen and a Diamond from a different suit.

• 4

Ask the spectator to give you a number from 1 to 50 such that the number is more than 2. For example the number is 23. You take first 23 top cards on the table and put rest of the deck aside. Now the top 2 cards that you glimpsed are at bottom.

• 5

Now, deal the 23 cards, i.e. make two piles placing them one by one with their faces down till you have placed all the cards on table. Here the two cards that you glimpsed earlier will be lying at the top of each pile.

• 6

As the prediction was about Queen of Diamonds, so when you will flip the two cards on the top of each pile, they will come out to be Queen of Spades and the other 5 of Diamonds.
