A spectator is asked to try and keep track of the red card after the cards are flipped over and mixed. No matter how hard they try, the spectators never can find the red card - because it vanishes from the group as soon as the cards are mixed! In its place is found a joker!
This is a trick that works itself. There is no sleight of hand involved. Can be performed moments after opening the package! Also available as a Tree Card Monte in which the red card turns into a Tree of Diamonds gag card.
The Royal Magic Three Card Monte is also extremely popular with FUN Inc's corporate clients. Instead of changing the red card into a joker, many customers choose to replace the joker with a customized advertising card
