    This is a very cool card trick-but can only be done once, maybe twice with the same group of people. It is best done once and then leave everyone wondering. You have to prearrange a phone call time with a buddy-let's say 9pm. Here's how it works-
    Just before 9pm, you tell your friends that you know a "wizard" that can tell them over the phone what card they have chosen. To prove it, have a friend draw a card, let's say 6 of Hearts. Then you call your "buddy" (whom you have prearranged to be able to answer his phone at the appointed time) Your buddy picks up immediately and begins saying,
    " 1,2,3,4,5,6...at which point you say, "Hello, may I speak to the wizard." (Now your buddy knows that the card is a 6 since that's when you stopped him.) While you are "waiting" for the wizard to come to the phone, your buddy then begins saying. "clubs, spades, hearts...at which point you say, "Hello, Mr. Wizard, could you please tell my friend which card he has chosen." (Now your buddy knows that the card is hearts since that is where you stopped him again.) Then hand the phone to your friend and the wizard says, "The card you have chosen is the 6 of hearts!" and immediately hangs up. Your friend is left drop-jawed!! And they have no clue how the wizard knew!

    This is really fun at a kid's birthday party if you have someone who is willing to hang out on the phone and tell EVERY SINGLE KID which card he chose! Freaks kids out-which is always fun!
