We wish we could remember the real name of this trick — but we do know it was produced by Supreme Magic over 40 years ago. The cards are still in good shape and have a lot of life left in them.
We do not have the instructions. But the photos will give you some idea of how the routine should be played. You should not have any difficulty whatsoever in doing this self-contained effect. It's very clever — and there are no flaps.
As you browse through the photos, you might wonder “where is the yellow card during the routine?” The answer is, “We forgot to photograph it!” So, here's how the yellow card fits in. At the beginning, you explain the meaning of all the cards -RED means STOP, YELLOW means BE CAREFUL, and GREEN means GO. During the middle of the routine (just before the “sucker ending”, the kids are screaming trying to tell you where the missing card went. So you reach inside the newspaper and produce the Yellow Card — and you ask the kids what it means. They scream, “BE CAREFUL”. To which you respond, right, the RED card has disappeared. Then you proceed to produce the “WRONG” card followed by “WRONG AGAIN”. Sorry for the oversight.
This routine plays very well for children 5-7 years old. But it will fool adults as well. Should you have any questions upon receipt, we'll take the time to walk you through anything that needs additional explanation.
It is a very easy sucker trick to learn, and it plays well. And it folds flat.
