Card trick A card trick is a magic trick performed with cards....... It is not important how difficult the trick is, it is important how well it is performed. And to perform a trick will you need to know a few things.

You need to know the effect.
You need to know the secret.
You need to know a patter.

The effect
In order to perform a trick you need to know what the effect is to the layman. You need to understand what it will do to people. How will they respond to your trick? Is it to difficult to understand what is happening? Will they laugh, will they be amazed, these are all things that you need the figure out before you start performing your trick.

The secret
Or some would say the method. If you don't know the secret you won't be able to perform the trick. If you don't master the method, the layman will see what you are doing or your trick will fail. The only way to master a trick is practice, practice, practice. And when you think you are ready to perform, practice a bit more. There are many well known methods invented over the centuries, some are hard some are easy. But for all of them it's the same. If you don't master them, don't use them.

The patter
Some say that this is the most important part of your trick, the story around your trick. The professor (Dai Vernon) once said, that every trick needs a good story that people can related to. On the other hand some tricks are so powerful that they don't need a patter (think of a simple Ambitious card routine). The trick is then self explaining. You need to find your own patters. It can be very helpful to get an example, but at the end it is you who is telling the story, so you need to put your heart in.

If you submit a trick at www.falsecuts.com, it is appreciated when you describe all three subjects. The secret is essential of course, but the effect and the patter, will help others to understand your trick better. And will give them a helping hand in learning and understand the trick.
