This effect germinated as I watched a struggling young mentalist use a large drawer type matchbox to load cards on top of a previously shuffled deck. Naturally, he was using the ancient device of inserting the cards to be loaded between the edge of the drawer and the top of the outer sleeve. With the drawer in a half-open position, the cards are trapped and hidden from view. When the shuffled pack was inserted into the half open drawer and the drawer closed, the three or four cards dropped onto the top of the shuffled pack. I don't know if he fooled anyone, but later, I decided to tackle the problem of loading a card in the same fashion...but starting with the drawer closed. An hour or so later, MATCHIC was born.
