Four Friendly Kings
Thanks Greg

playing card
Do the first 3 steps away from your audience or pre-prepared.
1: Take the four Kings out of the deck, and also two other cards.
2: Fan the four Kings out, and place the two other cards you selected behind the second King.
    Line them up so your audience cannot see the two other cards.

3: Show the Kings to the spectators.
4: Place the Kings (and the two secret cards) face down on the top of the deck.

5: Tell the audience that the four kings are good friends, and they don't let anything get between them.
6: Place the top King on the bottom of the deck. You may show the audience this card.
7: Place the next card (not a King) into the centre of the deck.
8: Repeat step 7.

9: Leave the fourth card on the top. You may show the audience that it is a King.
10: Explain that the Kings are real good friends and will soon be back together.

11: Cut the deck in the middle, and put the bottom half on the top.
12: Search the deck for the four Kings. They have been magically moved next to each other.
