Explanation of trick

In a deck of cards, there are four Kings, four Queens and four Jacks. You were shown two of each, for a total of six cards: the Jack of Spades, King of Spades, King of Hearts, Queen of diamonds, Queen of Spades and Jack of Hearts.

Out of those cards, you selected one that you predicted will disappear.

Then you were shown five cards, where your selection was missing. The trick is that out of the twelve possible face cards, these five were not among the original shown to you. Few people notice that all of the five are different than the original cards. Since you were focusing on your selection, you did not notice what the other cards were.

It is a pretty clever trick.


Although people do seem to be able to sense or predict future events, care must be taken when someone demonstrates how easy it can happen. Also, it shows that you need to be cautious when dealing with professional psychics, who may be using common magician tricks to fool people.
