Backstabber by Ton Onosaka(c. 2000) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
Effect: “Have you ever taken a good look at the king of hearts? He’s sometimes referred to as the “suicide king,” because he appears to be stabbing himself in the head with a sword. (Actually, two heads and two swords.) However, on closer examination you can see that the swords are actually positioned behind the king. That will be significant in just a moment.”
The performer begins an offbeat trick. The king of hearts is set aside, and a spectator selects two cards from the balance of the pack. There’s a big surprise when the king is turned over: Instead of the normal card back that was there before, now there’s a view of the king from behind— and it’s seen that the swords are skewering two miniature cards: the selections!!
We are sure you will come up with many other uses for these unusual cards!!
