Hindu Force


The hindu force is a straightforward method of forcing the spectator to select a card without them realising it.

It looks like them freely selecting a card whilst you perform a hindu shuffle, but it's a force.


How To Do It

To prepare, put your force card at the bottom of the deck.

Begin by performing a regular hindu shuffle, by taking small portions of cards into your left hand.

As you start, ask the spectator to say stop at any time they please.

When they say stop, turn the remaining cards in your right hand to them, stating that this is the card they selected.

The hindu force must be done quite rapid and smooth in order to be convincing. As soon as you perform it, proceed with the trick, so that they don't have chance to ponder your exact moves.
