Any Queen Called For by Harry Stanley, Ron MacMillan(c. 1942) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
Better than Twisted Sisters!
This is one of my favorite packet tricks of all time! I got my original one from Ron MacMillan in the UK over twenty years ago. Recently, I managed to remake it in Bicycle stock using some cards from Daryl. To my mind it is more impressive than Twisted Sisters (which is a great trick too), and is particularly convincing if you perform it 3 times in a row.

Effect: With this set of cards a variety of tricks are possible. Here’s an example – The magician places an envelope onto the table and claims ‘There are four cards inside, each one is a Queen but only one of them is reversed’. A spectator is requested to name a Queen – free choice, no force – the cards are removed from the envelope and spread, the named Queen is the only one reversed (face up, while all other cards are face down). ‘That was a one in four chance’ the magician explains and then proceeds to repeat the trick. The same statement is made, any Queen is named, yet the outcome is always the correct. There are no outs, no sleight of hand and only four cards are used. What’s more, this can be repeated as often as you like, the prediction is always correct and gets more and more baffling each time.
