Odds & Ends

by Real McCoy

THE EFFECT: The magician is able to guess the number a spectator is thinking. This trick has been performed by a great many magicians including David Blaine.


THE SECRET: When asked to pick a number between 50 and 100 with different even digits the spectator will most always pick 68.


When asked to pick a number between 1 and 1000, the spectator will more often than not pick 333.


TIP: The odds of getting the right results are pretty good for both the effects above and when you do get the right result it is a very baffling mental effect. Remember do not do it twice on the same group of spectators!

Why don't you just tell someone to pick a number between 1 and 1000 but with the same number in each digit?!

strong minded people are easily able to do this after practice...
by: take my word for it!...

Practice is the key to tricks like this !!!
You're looking for pure And perfect consistencies with your voice tone, clarity, pitch, (etc....) and everything else you can possibly build-on... BUT THE BEST METHOD TO START LEARNING HOW TO DO THIS TRICK IS... to FIRST try it on everyone until you get a"333" answer... then simply duplicate that situation... the more exact... the more consistent your answer will be...ALWAYS REMEMBER: "CONSISTENCIES BREED CONSISTENCIES"/ PRACTICE PRACTICE PRAC... ... ... ....!!!

1 out of 50 thats hard indeed
1 out of 6 less hard?

Not that big of a risk
by: Anonymous

In the first one, the options are only 62,64,68,82,84 and 86 - meaning you have a 1 out of 6 shot to pick the number, even though it "seems" like its a 1 out of 50 shot.

you are running a big risk of the spec thinking of the same number every time.
