How to Do the Triple Threat Card Trick

The Triple Threat requires the performer to make three predictions which come out to be true in the end. A performer can play it in front of someone or a group of spectators. What happens is that the performer writes names of three cards on a piece of paper and keeps them in a box that contains cards, without letting the spectators know. The performer then makes a prediction by writing it on a piece of paper, while putting the cards back in the box. After that, the performer brings those cards out of the box and places them in three piles. The spectators will be amazed to see the top three cards since they will be the ones predicted about earlier!
