Do you want to see something Startling?

You proceed to to demonstrate your claim by discarding one tile at a time.
You then finish by explaining that using the discarded tiles you can form other words and reintroduce the discarded tiles to form the name of a playing card.
The spectator turns over the card chosen at the beginning and they match!
