Two playing cards are placed face down on the table. A spectator has to guess the identity of just one of these playing cards. If he guesses correctly, glory will be bestowed upon him!
However, if he fails to guess the correct identity of one of the cards, glory will evade him and shame will be his part. Should the spectator fail, the magician promises him compensation in the form of a fair amount of money. Just a small gesture to help him carry the burden of shame.
Naturally the spectator does everything in his power to avoid the shameful position that he has to accept the money and therefore tries really hard to correctly guess the identity of one of the cards.
Luckily he succeeds, glory is his part and as a logical consequence, he lives happily ever after.
The effect contains a red Phoenix Double Decker Deck.
