  • This is a story about four Jack robbers comimg to the king's castle to stole his treasure.
  • Put the four robbers on the deck, with the three different cards on the top of the others, but pay attention : the public must not see those three different cards.
  • They arrive by the top of the castle.
  • Put the top card under the deck. Put the second one higher in the deck and the third one, again higher. Those cards aren't Jack robbers: they are the three different cards.
  • The first robber goes on the first floor, the second on the second floor and the third on the third floor. The fourth robber stays on the top to watch if the king arrives. 
  • Show the king that you kept at the beginning and put it beside the deck.
  • K
  • After few minutes, the fourth robber sees the king coming to the castle. He shouts to the others: ‘’Come back, the king arrives!’’.
  • Do as if you were concentrating very hard to make the three robbers climb up the castle. Do mysterious moves and pretend you are magically making the robbers escape.
  • They climb up the castle, hoping they will arrive on the top before the king sees them!
  • K
  • Return the four top cards one by one to show that the jack robbers ‘’really’’ climbed up the castle! Practice to hide unnoticeably the three cards behind the jacks when you show them, at the start of the trick.
