Willing To Bet?
A fun little diversion and a great unusual card trick featuring a coin and a playing card. The magician puts both the coin and the playing card, one on top of the other on their finger tip and issues a challenge for a spectator to do the same and then remove the card from their finger without touching the coin, leaving the coin still on their finger. A neat trick which most spectators will fail to do leaving the performer to show them how it is done.
Once again, the performer issues a challenge for a spectator to take up. This time it is to arrange six playing cards in such a way so as to be able to lift just one card which in turn lifts all the others, keeping the faces of all the cards visible all the while.
