Four-Card Swindle

Four-Card Swindle

Product ID: 680

You tell a fascinating story of: “A Witch from Ipswich who came across a ‘pavement con artist’ doing the ‘three-card swindle’ only this chap was Irish, so he used four cards. Three cards were spot cards and the other card was a picture card. The con artist placed one spot card aside and then openly mixed the picture card together with the other two spot cards. He then asked the witch to bet her money on finding the picture card, asking her ‘which card is which Mrs Witch from Ipswich! I can’t say that when I have had a drink!”

You show three pip cards and a picture card. One of the pip cards is placed to one side and the picture card is mixed with the other two pip cards. Mysteriously the picture card vanishes – you now hold three pip cards. The picture card proves to be the pip card you placed to one side earlier. The effect is repeated and in Billy Day’s amusing patter story, the witch again fails to find the picture card, losing money to the con artist. The picture card always proves to be the one that is laid aside as a pip card.

Finally in revenge, the witch puts a spell on the con artist – the three cards he holds magically change to three picture cards, while the one that he has laid to one side proves to be a pip card!

The playing cards supplied are completely unfaked. Cards & full instructions are supplied. While the effect will need just a little handling practice it is easy-to-do! You will learn it in a couple of fun-spent hours.
