The Royal Scam by John Bannon

Back in Stock Soon!

THE ROYAL SCAM - You display a small packet of cards that are all Ace Of Spades. Through six increasingly staggering phases this packet of cards keeps reversing it's orientation, first all face down, then impossibly all face up. Now most tricks would end there... but The Royal Scam has yet to unleash the truly impossible, because next four of the discarded Aces are revealed to have different back designs - each one from a totally different deck!

While your spectator is reeling at this utter impossibility you'll be gearing up to unveil your REAL coup de grâce, because the remaining five cards are then flipped faceup to reveal that they are not the generic Aces Of Spades they expected. Nope - those five cards are a fully examinable ROYAL FLUSH IN SPADES!

The Royal Scam is classic John Bannon - brilliant economical handling, easy to master method, fully examinable cards, multiple phases - a huge amount of magic from just the nine provided cards!
