Horoscope Card Force
Encyclopedia of Card Tricks with Rudy Hunter • 3m 37s
HAVE the short card on the bottom and the card you want to force on the top of the pack. Ask a spectator what month he was born in, suppose he says 'May'. Illustrate then just what you want him to do. Deal the first card on the table calling it January and continue the deal calling the next card February, and so on until you reach May. Leave that card on the top telling him that would be the card he would look at if he were dealing the cards. Drop the pack on the cards dealt and give the cards a complete cut. Find the short card and make the pass, or make a cut openly, bringing the short card to the top. Hand the pack to the spectator. He counts down to his month, May, and he will get the card that was originally on the top of the pack, thus making a very novel force. You may write 'Happy Birthday' on the card beforehand and then force it.
