You start by showing nine small solid brass engraved lettered tiles that when assembled make the word STARTLING. You then offer to show something STARTLING with a deck of cards. A card is chosen by spectator and placed face down on the table in front of them. Attention is then drawn to the brass tiles and the word STARTLING. One by one a single letter is removed, and each time another word is formed. This continues until just the letter 'I' remains. The discarded letters are then rearranged and amazingly they spell the name of the chosen card.
Comes complete with nicely made props & carry pouch and is 100% self working.
