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!
