...you dealt the cards out into four piles, had the person choose one pile, then flipped through it until you came across the Ace of Spades, the Ace of Hearts, the King of Spades, or the Queen of Hearts. And when you came across one of them, you put the rest of the pile aside and asked the person to choose another pile. You kept on with the process of elimination until you had four or five cards.
You laid out the four (or five) cards, and the order they were in would tell your love fortune, with the Queen of Hearts being the fortune's receipient, the Ace of Hearts being her heart, the King of Spades being the person the receipient was thinking of, and the Ace of Spades being their heart. And if there was a fifth card, then it was another person who was in the way.
I remember a lot about this, but I just tried to teach a ten-year-old girl about it, and I couldn't remember all the explanations for how the cards turned out at the end. When I look on Google, I get a lot more complicated fortune telling rules, and I really just want to know how this works.
Did anyone else do this? Does anyone remember how it's supposed to go?
