Quintuplicate Coincidence by Scotty York, Denny & Lee

(c. 1994) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)

This is one of those effects that is really very startling to watch, and yet is almost embarrassingly easy!

Effect: Here is Scotty York’s version of David Van Vranken’s version of Gemini Twins. This has all been redesigned with a gambling or casino theme. This deck of cards is made of entirely of different backs from various casinos around the world. Two prediction cards are dealt face up on the table and two spectators select cards from the balance of the face down deck. Not only do the two selections match the prediction cards, the backs are turned over and they also match. For the finale, the deck is spread and the selections and predictions are the only red cards in the entire deck. The rest of the deck is clubs and spades. All can be examined. No switches, no sleight-of-hand. A self working effect with a terrific Scotty York casino theme presentations. Complete with cards and book of instructions.


“Quintuplicate Coincidence” is Scotty’s handling and presentation of David Van Vranken’s version of “Gemini Twins,” a trick originally published in Karl Fulves’ More Self-Working Card Tricks.

The routine uses a deck consisting of cards from various casinos. The performer chooses two cards as predictions. Two spectators chose two cards in a very fair manner. The backs of the predictions and the selections match (climaxes one and two). The spectators have also managed to choose the “mates” of the two predictions (climaxes three and four). And for a final climax, the deck is spread face-up showing that the two pairs are the only red cards in deck of all Spades and Clubs. Most amazing of all (from the magician’s point of view) is that this effect is entirely self-working. Jamy Ian Swiss wrote the lucid 18-page instruction manual that contains every bit of information you’ll need to successfully perform this effect. Also included is the necessary deck of casino cards.

This is one you’ll want to add to your repertoire. I know I did.

    Wow – so easy and yet so Powerful!

    This is one of those effects that is really very startling to watch, and yet is almost embarrassingly easy!

    In effect, you have a special deck that is made up of different cards from various casinos shuffled by the spectator. You then take the deck back and procceed to choose two cards from the deck as your predictions. You then hand the deck back to them and they are free to deal as many cards as they want (no force) in front of the first prediction card. Whey they are done the prediction is marked and the cards are dealt again into another pile for the second prediction card. Once the predictions have been laid on the table, the magician does not need to touch the cards.

    Amazingly enough the first prediction is found in the deck and it is next to a card with the same colored back. The other prediction is found and it too has the same colored back. When each prediction is turned over it is found that the card predicted not only has the same back but the value is the mate: e.g. four of hearts and four of diamonds. Finally, when the rest of the deck is turned over all of the cards are the opposite color to the prediction cards!

    This effect looks visiually stunning and is inredibly easy to do with everything examinable and freely shuffled.

    Highly Recommended!
