I am looking for a method that is relatively easy to do which results in divining a thought of card.

My idea is that a card is selected from the deck after a person thinks of one.
(ie: Spectator pulls it out of the deck fairly and then returns it to deck -- only to have it revealed after a bit of byplay.)

Does anyone have thoughts on how this could be accomplished without too much sleight of hand? (I suffer from a bit of arthritis)


I have a patter and reveal in mind -

Thanks for any help.

Hello Mike - forgive me I'm not 100% sure if you want the card merly 'thought of' or chosen from the deck then looked at by the spectator before being returned.
If it is the latter then a marked deck would work. I use a marked deck quite often. I can PM you my thoughts.

Cheers
Nev

Use a bottom or top key card, or if you can do a double undercut or any other easy control to top or bottom. Then have the spec concentrate on his card as you look through the deck and see it.

You might like the latest release at Trickshop - Jack Yates Ingenious. Genuine think of any card. There are a couple of dealing sequences but the potential benefits (I think) more than make up for it. You could start it from a spectator shuffled deck (with very little effort) and at the end you could either just name the card or you could hand the deck to the spectator and ask them to remove their card. They will find that it's the only card missing from the deck and then you could produce it from your pocket. The two dealing sequences can be done quickly (since you do them rather than the spectator) and they don't seem to give any clue as to the method - in fact they would probably make the spectator more confused.
