The Racetrack

A racetrack made out of playing cards? Quick, get out of the way! The magician is predicting the end of the race!

That’s one impressive trick! The spectator builds a route out of cards, in no particular order, and the magician predicts the end of the race.

This trick is guaranteed to impress. You can even try making the track longer by adding more cards. Can you predict the end of the race? Does it work every time? This trick is fun to perform with the whole group or in smaller teams. Try different things and discuss high probability and certainty to find out how the trick works. Ready, set, go!

  • This magic trick does not work every time since it is based on probabilities.
