1. Hindu Shuffle Force
Hold the deck from the sides with your middle finger and thumb like this put up a card you want to force on the bottom of the deck.
Now what you’re gonna do is reach underneath the deck with your other hand with your middle finger and thumb and pull off sections of cards from the top of the deck as it shown.
Watch Card Forces Tutorial Here and also read it’s transcript below the video
You will need to pull and pull and pull until they say stop and then you show them the card that they selected. Which of course is still the bottom card. Let me show you one more time what’s happening up close. In the mechanics the cards on the bottom you pull from the top into the awaiting other hand they say stop, and there’s the card but just keep in mind that when you pull don’t pull far away like this. Make sure that the cards come back, so it looks like you’re just pulling random cards and chunks off of the deck. But what you’re really doing is keeping the bottom card intact
2. Salt & Flick Stunt!
Now imagine you have a deck of cards on the table. And you literally flick the pack, and the chosen card appears that’s what’s next so pull the cards out of the card case and place them on the table.
Then you’re going to tell someone all you’re going to do is flick the cards and there’s their chosen card.
Watch The video Below and The explanation is going to blow your mind 😛
The explanation is going to blow your mind; it uses salt take a deck of cards put a little bit of salt like four or five little granules of salt onto a deck. Simply put the force card right here on the bottom of this top pack right on top sandwich it up and the rest is almost automatic. Let me zoom in and show you now that you know the secret so I’ve placed some salt on the deck here’s the forced card right here they come out of the card case. Like this put them on the table and you’re going to flick with the tip of your finger nail right here up and guess what happens. It automatically flips the card to that location why because there’s a slight break in the pack where that salt is what an epic idea give this video thumbs up.
3. Rifle Slip Force
This next one is called a slip force. Hold the deck in your hand like this with your fingers all around the edges and you’re going to riffle down one corner with your thum.
What you’re going to do is have the victim or spectator tell you when to stop when they tell you to stop just remove that top portion of card but with one little tricky move.
Watch In this Clip How you do Rifle Slip Force.
So when you hold the deck like this your fingers go around the edge. Which is making contact with this top card right here that allows you to slip that card off secretly. So when you ref open the deck and say stop you’re pulling all those cards away except right here for that top card it slides off very quickly and then you show them the card they stopped at. So again it would look like this riffle they say stop you pull and there’s the card in this. Awesome and easy card forces you’re going to do the same thing riffle your fingers down the edge of the deck like this and what’s going to happen is a spectator going to tell you when to stop, and you cut the deck right there and show them the card.
4. RIFLE break FORCE
it seems similar to the previous one but it’s way different because this card is in the middle of the deck let me show you up close.
Watch out this part of the Video.
it seems similar to the previous one but it’s way different because this card is in the middle of the deck. Let me show you up close. The secret start off with the force card on top of the deck then give the cards a cut there’s the force card. Right here put it in the middle except what you’re going to do is not close that cut all the way it looks squared up from the front but from the back you have your big old pinky in. There it’s called a pinky break so from the front looks like this and you can run your finger down the edge until they say stop. When they say stop you don’t grab from here you grab from the back and look as if you’re grabbing from there and then there’s that ace of spades. Let me show you from the back what it looks like from the front you’re going to rip it down with your thumb until they say stop then you’re going to pick up the cards from this break you have in the back and then show them that card how cool is that.
5. Break and Cut card Forces
For this next one set up your cards in the same way have your force card in the middle of the deck with the other half of the pack on top but with that special pinky break.
Lets Watch it in the video how this trick is done.
I’m going to cut the cards just tell me when to stop. They say stop well guess what continue that cut you started. There’s the chosen card if they were to continue and say stop here’s that chosen card so just keep track of where that chosen card is. In the pack and it’s either going to be here or here start by pulling small sections off as you say I’m going to cut the cards like this just tell me when to stop well during all that they’re not going to say anything because you’re talking now continue knowing that that’s the last piece and here’s the chosen card if they say stop go great here’s your card if you go another one and they say stop there’s the card well if they go to the very end and you’re all done see well now we’re out of cards here’s your chosen card so without seeing this in action it’s going to be hard for you to believe how simple and effective this is so I’m going to grab my camera man all right here hold out your hands for me I’m going to go through the cards like this very slowly what I want you to do is just tell me when to stop stop you sure yeah okay remember your card see once again that secret Ace of Spades well that’s going to go to the cards like this and you just tell me when to stop anytime you want stop you sure okay well here’s your chosen card
6. Criss Cross Cut Force
This next one’s great because all you do is have them cut the cards. all you do is have the spectator, cut the cards any where they want you take the remaining cards. Turn them side ways and Mark where the spectator cut that’s all you have to do
I know its little bit confusing Watch This part of the video that explains Criss cross cut force
then talk about the card trick or whatever you’re about to do with them and say let’s take a look where you cut and then you show them their chosen card so the setup is so simple put the chosen card or force card on top have them cut take the remaining cards and put them on the deck the other direction it’s called a criss cross force you’ve marked it then you look up and make eye contact for just a moment so they forget which half is which and say we’re going to try something impossible let’s see where you cut you pick up the pack that you placed on to their card and then you show them the card it fools everybody once again the chosen cards on top they cut you mark it you take off the part you put there and show them the card that was on top originally but it looks like it’s a card they cut too
7. Add on Force Using Card Case
I’ve been doing magic professionally for 20 years and I have made up a lot of weird ways to do things with card here’s one of them
Watch Video clip
I’ve been doing magic professionally for 20 years and I have made up a lot of weird ways to do things with card here’s one of them have someone literally shuffle up the cards take the cards back you put them into the card case you give them the card case and then talk to them a minute about the trick you’re about to do so we’re going to try something insane you shuffled up the card I haven’t touched them take the card out. I just look at the top card real quick put it back in the deck so I can’t peek so they take the cards they pull them out of the deck themselves they just shuffle them they look at the top card and guess what it’s that fourth card once again so the setup of this is very simple take this one from the deck place it in here put it on the table have them shuffle up the cards any way they want take those cards from them they’re not going to remember this part trust me put those into the pack but do it in a way so that that card is facing in the direction it needs to be so it ends up being on top slide those in there close them up and make a big deal about I don’t want to touch them you take the cards give them back to them and then continue with the dressing that you want to do for your trick just like the crisscross force as long as you’re looking up they have the cards and you’re talking they’re going to forget who did what a moment later it’s that simple
8. Add on Force Using ENVELOPE
This next one’s great if you already have a prediction inside of an envelope or maybe inside of the card case check this out.
Have a person takes the card shuffle them up and then drop cards or deal on to the table and stop whatever they want, and it’ll be their selected card. Let’s say a spectator is dealing on the table and they choose to stop right there you take the card case and say I’m going to mark it that’s where you stopped.
Watch this part of the Clip explains how you will trick your audience with this trick.

Let’s say a spectator is dealing on the table and they choose to stop right there you take the card case and say I’m going to mark it that’s where you stopped.Let’s try something, and then you talk about your trick and then here’s what you’re doing secretly is on the back of the card case you have that force card. So when you mark where they’ve stopped, you’ve added this card to the pile so. Obviously, you can do this easily with an envelope as well.Let’s say there’s a prediction inside of here so you can have them deal a certain amount of cards inside of here could be a piece of paper. That says I knew you would stop at the ace of spades you take the envelope they stop you place this on here square them up and then, of course, say inside of here don’t touch it says inside there’s a prediction they take this and of course you force this card.
9. Short Card & Riffle Time Card Forces

Watch how it is going to work
This next one forces the card in their mind it is so cool and so simple. Watch this I’m going to rip through the card. Like this I want you to remember one card but not the bottom card. Watch you got one so you probably already suspect what’s going on because you’re familiar with the fact that I’m forcing you the ace of spades. Right now but what’s going on is there’s a slight delay at that particular card. How does that happen well the card right before it is shortened by just a little bit? Let me show you how you make this card you simply take a pair of scissors and cut off about a sixteenth of an inch of that card, and this is what goes on to the deck right before your force card.Here this shortened card it’s going to go onto the deck and then here’s the rest of the pack with my force card right here and then just kind of pack it down so that there’s a little gap between that card. In your card the force card so when you riffle watch what happens automatically stops at that spot, so it comes down to you just timing this, and it forces that card in the mind.
10. Bottom slip Card forces
This next one just might be the first card force most people learn. Because it’s so simple and it doesn’t look very magical but what happens is you simply pull back cards one at a time until you tell you to stop and then when they say to stop you lift up the cards, and there’s the force card.
Watch this force in this video Clip Below
As you slide back the top cards one at a time, you’re asking your spectator to tell you when to stop but little do they know that underneath you’ve pulled the bottom card. Underneath those cards with your thumb as you’re pulling these top cards back. So when they say stop it’s a straightforward matter to just lift up the cards and the bottom card comes with it. How cool is that so the setup for this is obviously putting the force card on the bottom and as you’re pulling back those top cards slowly. Pull back that bottom card with your thumb so that when they say stop you can easily pull that up and reveal the force card.
