Hey mates, i really dont know if there is an effect out there that is similar to this one, but well...im not saying i created this effect, im just looking for a story line. I already thought about presenting it without words.... but i dont like that so much. This is the effect ... You show the 4 kings (can be any 4 cards of a kind) and lay them face down on the table. Than you go through the deck and take out 4 cards and lay them down on the table. The deck is set aside, you dont need it anymore. One of the four face down kings is chosen as the leader and they are laid down in a "T" formation. (the same as in dream of aces etc.) You pick up the pile you took out of the deck and display the 4 cards. You take one of them (lets call it C1) and lay it down next to the king thats lying alone. Now you pick up the first king in the 3er row and slide it into the packet. You turn it around, snap it (doesnt matter) and when you display the 4 cards again, the king has vanished. Bu instead of the king the card you laid down , the C1 card, travelled back to the packet. You repeat this 2 more times with the other 2 kings in the back row. C2 and C3 are set down next to the single king and C1 and travel back to the pile as the 2 kings vanish. In the end when there are only 4 cards left on the table (king, C1,C2,C3) you slowly turn them around. You dont find the 4 kings as expected but the 4 aces (again, you can choose any cards there) ... Well thats it. Hope you can imagine how it looks like. Maybe you know effects that are similar or exact the same. But im only looking for a story Many thanks in advance! niX.
