Even and Odd
Card Trick

Pin It

The Even and Odd Card trick is a pretty cool trick. You need to prepare the deck first but the method is excellent and worth learning.

@TAGSMagic has prepared a great video below but lets get into the performance.

First thing to do is riffle shuffle the deck. You the split the deck into two piles and ask a spectator to give you a hand.

You need to spread both piles face down so the spectator can have a free choice.

Then the spectator picks one card from one spread, looks at it and remembers it and then put it into the other spread of cards.

They then repeat the process by removing a card from the other spread and placing it into the opposite spread.

You now collect up the spreads into individual piles and re spread them face up. Now here comes the magical bit.

You scan through the cards carefully and pick out the two cards the spectator chose and you take a bow at the clapping that comes from performing this trick and fooling your audience.

Even and Odd Card Trick Recap

So now you have watched the video lets quickly recap on the trick.

  • You need to split the cards into odds and evens with the jack and king classed as odd.
  • Deal out four piles of 13 cards, 2 piles of odds and two piles of evens.
  • Put the 4 13 card piles together in this order Odds, Evens, Odd & Even.
  • You are then ready to perform the trick.
  • Split the deck in two and spread face down each pile.
  • Get a spectator to select and remember a card from each spread and place them back in the opposite spread.
  • Now collect and re-spread each pile face up and reveal the which cards the spectator has chosen.

And there you have it.. A great card trick and a great response if you practice, practice, practice.

One final tip from me is to practice this trick with family and friends, but try it in front of a mirror. You will find yourself watching how your hands move, the angles are shown in real time.

Watching yourself in a mirror increases your awareness on how you perform the trick. Its like you are looking at yourself in the eyes of the spectator and it can only help you develop your skill and presentation.
