As magicians, we project an air of mysterious, hidden ability. Our audiences are envious of this power, and their secret is that they wish they could do what we do. Search & Destroy gives them that opportunity – in a fun, entertaining, and completely self-working way. And yet without offering them a single clue as to how it’s all done!
The plot is simple: the slow-motion sandwich effect. A card is selected and returned to the pack. Two kings are placed face-up near the top and bottom of the pack – they move in toward the center, one step at a time, until only one card is trapped between them. Of course, that one card turns out to be the selection. But here’s the rub: the entire effect happens with the spectator holding the cards! Better yet, this trick is all but self-working. If you can control a playing card, you can perform this miracle.
