How would one go about concealing a playing card in the credit card compartment of a standard folded wallet? The problem I am faced with is the edge of the card poking up, making it visible to nearby spectators. The material is not quite high up enough to cover it. Were I only holding one potential prediction, I could simply slot it into the bill section. Therein, lies the problem...

Bridge sized playing cards? Put an actual credit card in front of it?

Just write the name of the card on the back of a business card...

A standard sized playing card should fit just perfectly in the standard credit card compartment
I shall see you on the other side.

Of course! I can't believe how dense I've been. Great suggestions all of them. I think folding them would make for a good reveal (thanks Harry).
@Ever Elizalde - You would think so wouldn't you? I had thought it was just my wallet, but after inserting the Jack of Spades into several wallets at the market I was stuck with the same problem. Maybe it's a UK thing?

Yeah maybe is a country thing, here (Mexico) playing cards fit perfectly well in any wallet.
But if that were not the case, I would do what Harry said, fold the card.
Or even write it on the back of a bussiness card as IAIN said. A bit less visual, but a whole lote more practical, mentalist, AND you get to give your bussiness card.
I shall see you on the other side.

A mini deck is perfect, especially if used with an Heirloom type wallet.

I don't think that using a mini playing card is a good route to make predictions on a wallet.
In a prediction, the premise is based in the idea that you have 1 card in your wallet, why do you need to "save space" if you only have 1 card?

A simple solution is use other wallet that can fit a card.

I suppose it depends on what you're trying to do, but (for example) the standard version of Kolossal Killer, in a standard billfold wallet, works perfectly well with the cards next to the paper money rather than in the credit card slots. To me it looks suspicious to have the wallet full of credit cards which could be hiding cards behind them. Having said that, I've used KK with a wallet full of plastic cards and it didn't seem to bother anyone else.

Your not proving you predicted a physical card. Your prediction is the value and the suit etc.

What Iain said, write it on a business card. If it's a prediction pre-written it.
If it's a demo of influence ask a few questions then write it on the biz card. Kk-have it ready before hand.

It is indeed intended for KK... Perhaps the business card route may well prove most wise. Folding the card could make it appear as though I have the need to house more than one.
@Barry - how would one go about slotting the required amount of cards between the bills? You could use more bills, but would that not confuse things further, at least in terms of ease of access?
Thanks again,
Ben.

The original KK manuscript tells you how to set up a standard wallet. Just use the notes you normally carry as dividers. You only need two as a minimum for the full version.

I had completely forgotten about the natural divider some wallets have in them! This combined with the note dividers detailed in KK will do nicely. Thanks again Smile
