The Ultimate Jumbo Cards Across
Kings Crossing is “Cards Across” on steroids: Jumbo cards. No sleight-of-hand. No palming. No false counts. Absolutely clean!!!
The routine possibilities for “Kings Crossing” are
limitless. This is a no-nonsense and literally self-working version of
the classic effect, and allows you to concentrate on your presentation
while fooling the pants off of your audience!
Here is a basic bare bones routine that you can do with “Kings Crossing”.
You show a stack of 20 jumbo-sized cards, and
explain how you are going to simply transfer a bit of LOVE in your show.
You bring onto the stage a couple of star-crossed lovers—or in a pinch,
a married couple will also do.
Very fairly, deliberately, and separately, you count out the 20 jumbo cards onto the table—there are no false counts or sleights.
You spread the top 10 cards in a fan, and show everyone including the
volunteers that they are all King of Spades—everyone can clearly see 10
separate King of Spades. You close up the spread and give them to the
man to hold safely in his hands, against his heart—all in the name of
love! You then spread the other 10 cards in a fan, and show them all to
be Aces of Diamonds—again the volunteers and audience can clearly see 10
separate Aces of Diamonds. You close up this spread and give them to
the woman, who also holds them in her hands, against her heart. Note that from this point on, you never touch the cards again!
After a series of by-plays and funny bits, you then
declare that you have now transferred 3 cards (bits of “love”) from the
man’s pile to the woman’s. To prove this, the man himself now counts the
cards one at a time onto the table. There are only 7 cards. The woman
is now invited to count out her cards onto the table, and incredibly
there are 13! As a stunning kicker, she herself picks
up the 13 cards and spreads through them, showing them to the audience.
Incredibly everyone will see that there are now 3 King of Spades mixed
into her spread—they are interspersed between the 10 Aces of Diamonds!
An amazing and baffling magical transposition with a fun and interactive
presentation has just taken place!
Important points to remember:
- After the cards are introduced and counted out, the performer never has to touch them again!
- At the end of the trick, the 3 Kings are actually interspersed separately within the spread of Aces.
- No false counts or sleight-of-hand; completely self-contained.
- Tons of opportunity for audience participation, ad-libs, and even some suggestive/risqué scripting!
- Perfect for stage and parlor, but you can actually do “Kings Crossing” close-up as well!
- Comes complete with 20 custom jumbo-sized cards, instructional DVD, and multiple bonus ideas and routines.
