With the losing cards we've tried to mix a combination of holiday themed and general icky cards.  

Originally this trick was designed for halloween gigs when Madam Katrina was reading tarot. She didn't feel comfortable reading tarot for young children but wanted something halloween themed she could do for them.  Wanting to keep it simple we designed six etched slates and used the hotrod force to keep it simple for a non-magician to perform. For Cardist this set is easy to combine with any favorite force. Below we've included a similar simple force as an option for those who aren't necessarily card magicians but want to add a little more appearance of chance.
