# How To Do Thirteen The Card Trick

## How To Do Thirteen The Card Trick

Here is a trick I learned when I was 7 years old. It was taught to me by my grandmother.

### Step 1: Order The Cards

Here is the card trick. It’s what I’d like to call ‘13’. What I’m going to show you now is that all the cards are in order from King all the way down to Ace, all suited.
Those are the clubs.
Here are the diamonds, with the King all the way down to ace.
The spades are sorted from the King all the way down to the ace.
And the same thing with the hearts, the king all the way down to ace.

### Step 2: Pile The Cards

Now anybody can do this. You just pile them on top of the each other, in no specific order. Just put them right on top like that.

### Step 3: Cut The Deck

Put them right around the table and you cut it 5 times from the top. There’s one, two, three, four, and five. Now you can put them anywhere; it doesn’t have to be right in the middle or the same spot every time, I’m sure you guys want to think that.
Then you flip it over and you do it 8 more times. You cut it for a total of 13 which is one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, and eight.

### Step 4: Line Up The Cards

Now you take the cards and you line them up like this; one, two, three, four, and five on the left side. Three down the middle, and then five down the right side.
You just continue this process, the order right down.

### Step 5: 13

And you need to be making 13 piles, and 13 cuts. That’s why I named this trick 13. When you flip them over, they’ll all be the same suit as the aces.

### Step 6: The Result

Here are the kings, queens, nines, sixes, eights, fives, fours, threes, twos, sevens, jacks, and tens. Now I have no idea how this trick works, I just know that it does work. Try it just like I did it. I guarantee that it does work. Enjoy, and have fun.
