I performed this with an old deck of cards I have making it a spooky sort of bizarre presentation, but some said the deck was probably marked even though I barely looked at it and they checked out the cards and obviously no markings were found. I thought of a bizarre presentation with a borrowed deck, but it's not the same. I'd love to hear of any bizarre presentations with this. Any?

Just got it - love it - especially since I carry around what is needed already for some other bizarre mentalism effects - but using a borrowed deck is great because it defeats the marked deck - in fact - when I first red A's dec of this effect - if it wasn't for the borrowed cards I'd say "marked!" right away...

One could add a steel blindfold I suppose... but the key with your own deck is to be looking the other way - have the specs hold their hands over the card to insure you cannot peek - but you must feel it to pick up the vibrations - see also "Sense of Touch" by Ian Rowland for some premises

My thought - with a borrowed deck - the owner of the deck should have created a special bond with the cards over time - and thus when they choose a card (or cards) you will be able to pick up that mystic connection....

Thans again, Alexandre!

I agree Dr. and thanks for the nice words about Ex Nihilo!

I happen to like it a lot.

Maybe there will be some more ideas regarding bizarre presentations with this effect. I'll keep and eye out.

I like that idea. I've been thinking about this and I think I'll have something to add here soon.
