# Method

Let's say the spectators have decided on the number eight. Show the first spectator the cards in Fig. 38, which are 38 to 49 in the stack (the 10V to 10t—easy to remember as they are the two red Tens). The first spectator notes the eighth card, which is the It. Replace the twelve cards on top of the deck and give (he pack a false shuffle and cut, transferring the top card, the 10V, to the bottom of the deck in the process.

Now show the top twelve cards to the second spectator. This group begins with the At (the card that follows the 10¥ in the stack). The second spectator sees eleven of the same cards shown to the first spectator, lacking m and with the 6* added. Furthermore, the eighth card, which the second spectator notes, is the next card in mnemonic order following the ' ^tor's mental selection: the Qt in our example. This will be true ^gardless of the number agreed on by the three spectators. Again add the
