Who Killed the King

@ VOL 18 ON JUL 08, 2016

"I am going to tell you a true story, that I made up."

In "Who Killed the King" from PechaKucha Night Orlando Vol. 18, Magician Extraordinaire Kostya Kimlat embarks on a fun-filled journey into the hidden stories that lie in plain sight in a deck of playing cards. Kostya goes on to share his mindblowing theory about the card of King of Hearts with us, touching on the European history, the history of card making and his own assumptions.

This was "Presentation of the Day" on May 26th, 2017.
