OOTW like effect ideas

Postby TakWah » Thu Apr 14, 2016 7:34 am

I want to perform/develop an Out of this World like effect, where the an audience member holds up cards from a deck and the performer says the color or the suit, but I am fine with the color only. But I have run out of ideas how to do so. The restrictions for that would be, no marked cards.

At the moment I am using my own unmarked deck of cards, which the spectator then cuts and shuffles. After which the spectator contends the audience member in "guessing" card colors. While the spectator achieves the expected 50/50 result. The performer hits anything at an arbitrarily level he can choose.

The problem is, I would like to make use of a borrowed deck, but I have no ideas where or how to start.

So if anybody knows of any principles, sleights, whatever which could help me develop this further.
Oh and no new deck order, but I guess this is excluded by no marked decks already.

For those who wonder, no marked cards is just because of the desire to use a borrowed shuffled deck.
