Any pack, borrowed if possible, may be used. Have the cards thoroughly shuffled by one or more spectators. Take it back and run through it to find and remove the QC, the most gossipy of all the Queens. In doing this spread the four top cards so that you can see and memorize their indices. Read the values to yourself thus for instance 47-36 (forty-seven-thirty-six) and then the suits, say C, D, H, S. After a little practice four cards can be memorized in this way at a glance. Have a spectator deal the cards into four face-down heaps. Push the QC face up below any chosen heap for a moment, then put the card to your ear. She whispers the name to you (?) and you call it. Repeat with the bottom cards of the other heaps.
