The Effect:

  • Ask a person to choose a card. Tell him to remember it's numerical value (ace = one, jack- = 11, queen = 12, king = 13) ---also the suit of the card.

  • Then tell them to add three to the total

  • If the card is a club they must add two

AFTER YOU’VE DONE THIS, AND LET THE RUBBER CEMENT DRY, YOU’RE READY TO GO AT A MOMENT’S NOTICE.

Posted by Bruce in Math Magic

Bruce

For this piece of magic you need a pretty clever audiences who is good at taking away (or can use a calculator).

Ask them to work this sum out:

  1. Write down a three digit number where all the digits are different.
    eg 317
  2. Reverse the digits eg 713
  3. Take the smaller number from the larger number
    713
    317
    -----  -
    396
  4. Ask them to tell you the hundreds digit or the units digit and you will be able to tell them the whole answer without knowing what numbers they chose!


THE SECRET:

Criss Angel Omega Book Test Revealed

Posted by momo in Tutorial , Mentalism

THE EFFECT:

The magician gives the spectator a sealed envelop to hold for safe keeping,pronouncing that he has made a prediction which is contained within. The spectator signs the envelope, to ensure that no switches will take place, and then he stores the envelope away in his pocket, or some other safe place.

The magician then holds out three books, and offers the spectator to select one of them. Having selected his book, the magician then riffles down the pages and instructs the spectator to call out "STOP" on any page he chooses. Once the spectator has stopped the magician, the magician turns his back as to not see or glimpse anything, and instructs the spectator to memorize the page number he stopped on, and also to remember a single word from the top line of that page. After the spectator remembers the word and the page, he closes the book and instructs the magician to turn back around.

The magician gazes into the spectators eyes, and, with what appears to be genuine mind reading, he not only tells the spectator what page he stopped on, but the word he was thinking of! BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE! Now is the truly magical part! The magician instructs the spectator to turn to the page he selected in his book. The spectator tries to turn to that page, but it’s missing! The page the spectator selected, and only that page, has been torn out of the book!

The magician backs away, as to insure that no sleight of hand or other form trickery will take place, and instructs the spectator to take out the envelope that was given to him and was signed before the effect began. He takes it out and opens it, to find that the page he selected was sealed in the envelope the entire time! Not only that, but the page matches up PERFECTLY with the one torn out of the book!
