I like card tricks. Any kind.
The best one I saw was one where this magician had someone choose a card out of the deck, memorize it, put it back (you know, standard routine), then shuffle it.
They gave it back to the magician, then he threw the entire deck onto a table, scattering the cards everywhere. He then picked up a small knife, threw it at a random spot on the table, hitting a card.
He moved the other cards away from the pierced card, then picked the knife up with the card still stuck threw it, and revealed it. Of course, it was the card.
I mean, it’s still the standard you-choose-a-card-and-I’ll-guess-it routine, but it’s just the way it was done. Loved it.
