Long Distance Telepathy

nineWhat seems to happen

You spread out a deck of cards face up, and ask a spectator to choose any one at all. When she has done so, ask her if she wants to change her mind. When she has finally settled on a card ( for example the nine of spades ) you announce that you absolutely knew in advance which card she would take. In fact you even told a friend.

You ask the spectator to pick up the phone and call your friend, Phil Taylor, and ask him what card she chose. When she does so, your friend Phil answers: Why you took the nine of spades, didn't you?

How it works

Long Distance Telepathy
nineObviously, you need a buddy who can be anywhere in the world, and who is at home or has a cell phone.
Either copy or print out the chart below. Your buddy has a copy. Your copy is in your black book of phone numbers. Once you know she has decided on a card, say the nine of spades, you fake out your black book to get the phone number, supposedly. But really you are looking for the key name for the nine of spades. (Actually, if you study

the chart, you can have it emorized in a few minutes and then you never need to look nineanything up!)
The first name corresponds to the value; therefore nine equals Phil. There are four last name, one for each suit. In this case, spades equals Taylor. So when you tell her to call your buddy Phil Taylor, you are really giving the code for the card she selected. She calls the number you give her, and asks for Phil Taylor. Your buddy looks up his chart ad instantly knows she took the nine of spades!

Obviously you cannot repeat the trick for the same crowd!
