Chris Mayhew has an odd combination of talents. Not only is he a great magician and a super funny guy, he's also Canadian! Since we launched A Clockwork Apple, he has received a reputation as one of the top card magic creators. "Casino Royale With Cheese" is a perfect example of his great creation. It's a sandwich effect and a surprising transpo all in one.
A card is selected, signed, and lost in the deck. You then enlist the help of the 4 Kings to find the card. The 2 red Kings are placed onto the table, while the 2 black Kings are placed onto the top and bottom of the deck. With a wave of the hand, the black Kings vanish and then reappear in the center of the deck, now with a card sandwiched between them. The card is revealed to be... The 2 red Kings! What the heck?? What's more, it turns out that the signed selection is now on the table where the 2 red Kings were sitting just a moment ago! This is surprising magic at its finest!
