An open prediction like no other...
pack of cards has been spread on the table. Next to the pack of cards
is a matchbox containing a miniature playing card. The spectator is
now asked to choose any one of the 53 cards in the pack and to name
it aloud so that there is no possibility that he can change his mind.
it be an absolute miracle if the little playing card in the sealed matchbox
is an exact duplicate of the playing card that has just been freely
absolute killer that will fool the best of them and utterly amaze the
close-up psychic prediction test surpasses this one in impact, simplicity
of execution and believability...
I describe this little miracle to you, without any exaggeration, keep
in mind that presentation and revelation possibilities are limited only
by your imagination. Here is an example of the type of powerhouse routine
Shufton's Miracle Premonition will provide for your arsenal:
performer, while making no claims, explains the idea of psychic premonition
- that it might actually be possible to accurately predict an event
that has yet to take place. To demonstrate, the performer shows a mini
playing card (just the back!) to be used as the prediction of a card
the spectator has yet to select. (Instead of a mini playing card, the
performer may openly write a prediction on a slip of paper to be folded
and left in full view). The prediction might be put in a small envelope,
or a rubber-banded matchbox (my favorite) or simply left in full view
face down on the table. One way or another, the prediction is left in
full view on the table (or a spectator's pocket!), and the performer
emphasizes that it will not be touched again.
deck of cards is removed from the card box and ribbon spread on the
table, or spread between the hands. The cards are initially spread face
down, as the performer explains that a magician will typically ask a
spectator to select a card from a face down deck, and that this approach
is hardly fair! After all, without seeing the cards, the spectator has
no way of knowing if it was a free selection. The cards might all be
the same, or the magician may be able to use some sort of trickery to
influence the spectator in his choice!
cards are scooped up again and re-spread face up. The performer explains
that by doing it this way, there is no conceivable way that the spectator
could be lulled into selecting any particular card. He emphasizes that
as the spectator can see, all 52 cards are there, and even a joker,
so the spectator truly has a free choice of absolutely any card in the
deck. The performer states that he will indeed try to influence the
selection, but only by sending a mental picture of the card he has predicted.
The images of the cards spread on the table are very helpful for that.
He asks the spectator to very carefully look over all the cards, and
whenever she feels that she has arrived at the card she wants to select,
she should simply name it.
spectator indicates a decision has been made and the cards are gathered
up. The spectator is asked to name the card and look at it once more
so there can be absolutely no mistake that the card she names and the
card she saw are definitely the same card - she can still change her
mind one last time! The cards are boxed and set back on the table.
hands in full sight and no false moves of any kind, the matchbox is
picked up and the rubber band removed. The spectator admits that the
box has never been out of her sight. The hands are shown empty before
the drawer is removed. The drawer is pushed open, and the miniature
card is shaken out onto the table - the performer never touches it.
The spectator verifies that nothing else is in the box and nothing went
in or came out of it since it was originally sealed.
spectator is invited to turn the card over with no interference from
the performer. Guess what? The miniature card perfectly matches the
random and free selection!
Isn't this one of the most cherished scenarios amongst us who do these
mystical things? YES! But this amazing effect has some advantages worth
effect is completely self contained. It can be done anytime, anywhere,
in short sleeves, and no pocket work. The hands and props never leave
the spectator's sight. The spectator truly has a completely free choice
of any of the cards, and the deck is full, including a joker with no
duplicates. The choice is really free! No Forces of any kind!
