down card which on being turned face up is seen to be the one chosen.
Place it face up on the bottom of the face up pack, square up, and turn face down taking a break under the top card. Pick up your card case and call attention to its closed condition at the same time adding the stranger card to the bottom of the case and put both on the table. The removal of the stranger card exposes a different coloured back but the audience are prevented from seeing this by angling the pack as the stranger is stolen. Put the back face up onto the table and ribbon spread it, and ask if anyone remembers the colour of the backs. On receiving a reply turn the spread over in the approved manner which you all know to reveal the change of colour.
You now pick up the card case together with the hidden stranger which you add to the pack as you tip the cards out of the case. Give the borrowed pack back to its owner, and put your own cards in the case.
The impact of this double climax is considerable, especially on the person whose cards you borrowed, and as it would be difficult to top it, it would be advisable to leave your cards where they are, in the case.
