A spectator is instructed to shuffle 8 cards picturing 8 different animals and think of one of them. Performer now randomly taps the face down cards, as the spectator mentally spells the name and correctly stops at the spectator's selected card.
Although based on an old spelling effect, the use of cards which can be shuffled by a spectator before and after his selection makes this a baffling mystery.
The cards measure approx. 3 7/16” X 2 2/16"
