Performer approaches a group at a table & asks for a few minutes of their time to witness a bizarre card effect. He promises not to overstay his visit & removes his watch to remind him.
He displays a deck of cards & removes 13 spades. He asks 3 cards to be removed. The 1st card represents an hour; the 2nd & 3rd card, a minute. The spectator does so & randomly selects an 11 for the hour, plus a 2 & 5 for the minute. (11:07).
Using the remaining cards, performer does a few effects. Before leaving, he asks spectator to announce the time selected earlier; he also picks up the watch & tells the group what he sees. The watch is set at 11:07!
A mind-blowing ending to any close-up routine. It defies explanation. A reputation maker. (Instructions also explain how to get a random time regardless of what cards are selected.)
