How to Do the Telepathy Card Trick

The Telepathy Card trick is another interesting type of the Mental Tricks. Like many other card tricks, this also requires a performer and a spectator. The performer begins the trick after shuffling the cards and cutting the deck a few times. After this, the cards are spread on the table or given to the spectator who selects a card and memorizes it. The deck is then handed back to the performer who puts the selected card in the deck at random. Starting from the bottom, the performer starts counting and stops on a certain card. When revealed, it is the same card chosen by the spectator. Knowing a few basic things, you can play this trick on your own if you do not have any spectator.
