The origin of the 'Torn and restored card' is sadly last in obscurity. I have my methods, you have your's so why do we need others?? WE

DON'T!! Still, that shouldn't stop you from trying out the following unusual approach. You'll need a regular deck, but with every performance TWO cards will be destroyed. With this in mind • • ^ • I'd advise you to borrow someone else's deck and not use your own.

Have a card selected and control it to the top of the.deck. Explain that you are about to perform the amazing 'Two card trick'.

Explain that you will show the spectator two cards, one of which will be his BUT you don't want the spectator to say anything unless you specifically ask him.

Double turnover to reveal a card (Not his.) Flip the double face down and table the top card. Cut the deck and simulate the double turnover by simply flipping the new top card face up, then down and then tabling it atop the other card.

The spectator THINKS that neither of the two cards is his. Pick up the cards and in the process reverse their order so that the actual selection is now atop the other card. Both cards are face down in your hand. With the cards squared fold them in half, then unfold ONLY the outer selected card and tear the card (s??) completely in half. It should appear that you have folded both cards and then torn both in half. Place the single ) half beneath the other two pieces and the situation is Folded card, followed by the two torn halves of the selected card which are face up. Turn the torn?? packet over and Elmsley count to display 4 apparent half cards all face down.

Appear to now count two of the pieces into your right hand, but in reality you simply perform the Elmsley count again, but retain the last 2 halves?? in your left hand. Explain that you'll place two halves in each hand and show them the

'Two card trick.' Make a suitable gesture with the right hand and then show that the 2 halves?? have mysteriously joined together. "That's the first part of the amazing '2 card trick'." you say and then offer to repeat the miracle with the halves in your other hand. Repeat the magical gesture, then show that nothing has happened, by displaying two halves face down. Repeat the gesture, but the halves refuse to join together.

Apologise and explain that you always have trouble with the second card, so you'll try something different Ask if either of the card was the one selected and when you receive a negative reply say "Well that would have been too much to ask wouldn't it??" continue with ..." Here, let me try it anyway. What was your card?" Once the name of the card has been given click your fingers and display the two halves face up and somehow they will be seen to have changed into his selection.

NOTES** I do have various methods for restoring both cards and indeed I showed one to Phil Goldstein back in December after Ron's day. Some of you may think that the 2nd effect (THE CHANGE.) is an anti-climax, so did I. . . . Until I tried it out on a Layman!! Borrow a deck from a magician at the next convention, show it to him and just watch HIS reaction!!!!!
