Two Jumbo size cards are shown to each have an identical list of objects on them. The spectator and the magician each take one and the spectator is invited to place a cross against one item the magician then places a cross against an item on his board. Neither can see the other writing. This is repeated until 9 of the 10 items each have a cross against them. The cards are then turned around and both are seen to have the same item without a cross against it.
