Three Card Trick
(with Four Cards)


Alice's Wonderland Monte
by Professor Spellbinder

This uses three Ultra Jumbo (8.5" x 11") Playing Cards that you print and assemble yourself, using the original Alice's Adventures In Wonderland art of Sir John Tenniel, illustrator of the 1865 novel written by English mathematician Professor Charles Lutwidge Dodgson under the pseudonym, Lewis Carroll. The audience is asked to "chase" the White Rabbit until the Red Queen gets annoyed and ends the game her own way. The audience may believe they have gone "mad as a hatter" when it's over and the cards are shown on both sides.

The magic of this "monte" is based on concepts by Harry Anderson, but adapted by Jim Gerrish, Al-Quadir Marsh, and Professor Spellbinder so that all three cards can be shown front and back, both at the beginning and the surprising ending. The newest versions of the cards are in full color to make them even easier to see from a distance. Templates for all are included FREE.

Once you understand the concepts involved, there is room for you to get creative and make changes of your own. You're not limited to our designs, but can use any three cards, photos, posters, or whatever. As a bonus, Jim demonstrates how to gimmick ordinary jumbo playing cards (Jack, Queen, King) and get the same results!
