First, get a jumbo deck of "Hull's Pop-Eyed Popper." It's a jumbo Svengali deck which has been heavily roughed. Naturally, every other card is alike. With a bold permanent black magic marker, make a bold "X" mark on the backs of all the odd cards, not the all-alikes. Reassemble the deck. You're ready to go.
Oh yes, the "out." Let's say the force card in your deck is the 2 of Hearts. Obtain a jumbo 2 of Hearts with a different colored back than the deck in use. With a bulldog clip, affix the duplicate card to the outside of your left hand inside jacket pocket with the face of the card hidden from view. Proceed to perform as outlined under the "effect."
