To start, press the 4 key to flip all of the cards at once. This will show the positions of the Queen and two Jokers.

Tell your students to follow the Queen. Press the 4 key again to flip the cards on their faces. Press the left arrow key to set the speed to slow. Then press the ‘s’ key to begin shuffling the cards. Let them shuffle a few times, the press the ‘s’ key again to stop.

Then you ask the students to guess which card is the Queen. Use the number keys to reveal the cards one by one. Now, you can explain that you’re about to make the game a little more difficult.

Flip all of the cards on their faces. Tap the up arrow key to set the speed to normal. Tap the ‘s’ key to start shuffling. Let it go for a little while and then tap the ‘s’ key again to stop. See if your students can find the Queen.

Finally, tap the right arrow key to set the speed to fast and start shuffling.

Sometimes you’re going to want to mess with your students and force a result. To do this, tap the ‘q’ key before your flip a card. The next card you flip will be the Queen. The same is true with the ‘j’ key for the Jokers. Make sure that if you decide to force a card, you need to force the other two cards as well. Otherwise, you may end up in a situation where you force the Queen for the first card, but the real queen is revealed under the second card.
