Magic Lessons #69 – Behind Back Card Force
The behind back card force allows you to make someone take a playing card of your choosing simply.
I’ve been looking for some of the simpler card forces out there. I’ve found two great methods to force a card. One is extremely simple, while the other is a little more difficult but still very easy to pull off.
The Two Card Forces I Found Are:
- The Behind The Back Force
- The Easiest Slip Cut Ever
I found this simple behind the back card force in a David Ginn booklet that was first published in 1974, titled “Close-Up-A-Ginn”. David has stated that he is unsure of where this magic trick first originated but it was commonly written about back then.
Over the past few weeks, I have incorporated the behind the back card force technique while doing strolling magic bookings. There have been no problems throughout the testing and I didn’t have anyone question the legitimacy of this trick. It’s important to keep talking and act like you are sticking to what you said you’d do. Just act naturally and this will lead you to some really fun card tricks.
Hopefully the behind the back card force will give you the confidence you are looking for. This card force will work great for magicians of all experience levels, so if you are experienced, you may be able to adapt this into something you do sometime in the future.
