Impressive card trick, blindfolded!

Time for a little fun. I learned this card trick from Derren Brown’s book Tricks of the Mind, which I recently reviewed. I’ve had a great deal of fun demonstrating this to countless people. I’ve even added my own little variation to Brown’s method, in that I do it blindfolded! See what you think …

    The key is [CENSORED]. When the pack’s shuffled, you [CENSORED]. When you [CENSORED], the [CENSORED] has [CENSORED]. You take the [CENSORED], show us, then [CENSORED]. Now it’s just a case of turning over each card in the pack until you reach the [CENSORED].

    Reminds me of the [CENSORED] card trick I used to do as a kid!

    Naughty, naughty! Now, where’s the fun in just revealing it to everyone like that? 🙂

    I can do that trick too – it is quite impressive.

    There are two points where you can see the key to the trick, but it is very subtle, and that is what makes it fun and intriguing.

    Derren Brown up to his old tricks again – he and David Blaine should run off and join a commune

    Hey, Rob. Curious. Do you hear much about Derren Brown in the States? Is he a known name over there?

  7. Robert Miller says:

    Derren Brown is not so much known here, but Criss Angel seems to be quite popular – have you heard of him?

  8. Darryl Sloan says:

    Yeah, I’ve seen a few clips on YouTube, but I don’t really follow his work.
