Spectator shuffles an unprepared pack of playing cards. He then removes any three cards and places them face down on the table. The performer turns the balance of the pack face up. The spectator has a choice of peeking at any one of the three face down cards on the table. As soon as he does so, the performer turns the remaining two cards face up. Holding the pack in his left hand, the performer inserts the three cards on the table into the pack so that half their length protrudes from the end of the pack. The spectator's card is sandwiched face down between the two face up cards. The performer states that he will cause the chosen card to flip over and emerge from the opposite end of the deck. The three protruding cards are simultaneously pushed into the deck. As this is done, a face up card emerges from the other end of the pack. The spectator states that it is not his selected card. The performer apologizes and states that he will therefore have to resort to his psychic powers. The protruding boo-boo is pushed flush with the pack and the cards are immediately placed behind the performer's back The spectator is asked to concentrate upon his selected card. As the performer begins to reveal the color and suit of the spectator's chosen card, he brings forth packets of cards from behind his back and tosses them face down on the table. Finally, the performer correctly reveals the identity of the spectator's selected card. At this point, the magician is holding one lone face down card. Turning it face up, it is seen to be the spectator's card.
Those of you who possess a modicum of card ability can easily perform Peek-A-Boo-Boo. All you need is a pack of playing cards.
