This effect it one of the most simplistic I have seen but the reaction u get from it are
superb, Ok to start you must know the Elmsley, don’t worry if you don’t ill write a
description, at the end of the end of this document, so here goes.
To make the gimmick you will need 2 matching jokers, glue, the 4 aces and some
double sided tape, First take what ever ace you want and glue it back to back with one of
the jokers so you make a double sided card with the ace on one side and a joker on the
other, and place a small square of double sided tape (note it has to be clear double sided
tape) on the center of the other joker, the busy design hides it and that’s the gimmick
Set up: start by having you three normal aces in dealing position in what ever hand u
feel comfy with, Then place the double sided card on top “ACE side facing down” when
you have done this the joker of the double sided card will be face up!!! Then place the
“sticky” joker on top of all that face up, That’s the set up complete.
Performing: Say to the spectator you have four jokers, and continue to show them “this
is where you do the elmsley to make it look like four jokers look at the bottom for the
elmsley count” When you have finished doing this count the sticky card should end up
on top. Now you continue and lift of the top joker and say “this guy is the leader of the
pack, whatever he does, the rest will do” and turn him over on top of the bundle and
give it that magic shake “ when you give it a little shake you are really pressing the
middle of the top card so the tape sticks to the next card right!!!” now fan them out and
the will see al the cards are now face down, then say “ the real amazing thing about this
is that I keep loosing jokers doing this trick and I have way to many aces and turn them
over one by one reveling all the aces, they WILL be amazed!!!!!
tips: at the turning over point you can make it look like there turning over one by one
using the elmsley, what you do
