There are many different areas of magic, and card magic is my personal favourite, a form of card magic is card forcing. Card forces can be used in many different ways - tricks, predictions, mind reading and so on. The main point of this book is to teach you how to force a card onto an unsuspecting spectator, the rest is up to you as to how and where you want to take the trick. For example, in the first force, the 9th card force and as with many others in the book, you could either predict the card they will choose, or show them the card without looking at it, ask them to shuffle the pack and then proceed to find their card. The next effect - The glide force - you could say Give me a number between 1 to 10A" and again either predict the card they will choose, or incorporate the outcome into a trick. When you have forced a card, you could decide to have the spectator shuffle it back into the deck without you seeing it, and explain that most people have a tell. Explain to them what a tell is, it's a minute facial expression that poker players often pick up on when they know another player is bluffing. So have them keep the straightest face then can as you deal off the cards from the deck, deal a card one by one and look at their face after each turn. You could go through the whole deck or just to where their card is, and tell them Your tell gave it away what your card is, your card is the...A" I haven't included pictures with every effect; just those that I think will help you.
