Foresight (by Devin Knight)

Product Description

A killer effect that starts out like a comedy routine but packs a wallop at the end.

The Effect:

  • The magician holds up an envelope and says it contains a prediction.
  • He asked a spectator to name any playing card.
  • The performer says the named card is in the envelope.
  • He removes an 8.5 x 11 inch picture that has the whole deck spread out.
  • The performer says look, there is your card right there.
  • The audience laughs but isn't impressed, so you ask the participant to just think of a card in the picture. No force.
  • You then ask a second participant to also think a card in the picture.
  • Now for the amazing part, the performer immediately tells the first participant the card he is thinking of.
  • He simply makes two comments about the card, both are correct (you are never wrong) and then names the card.
  • You do this without any complex fishing. In fact you name the 'thought of' card so quickly it will startle even magicians!
  • The magician then points out that he has been wearing a CLEAR cardholder around his neck from the very start. You can see the back of a playing card inside it.
  • He then asks the second participant what card he has in mind. The participant names the card.
  • Immediately and with NO SWITCHES, you turn the clear cardholder around and sealed inside is the very card he just named.
  • The back of card is in full view at all times and never leaves the audience's sight.
  • The card can be removed and the badge holder examined. Nothing else inside.

The predicted card could also be a jumbo card on your table in full view from the start for those who don't want to have the card hanging from your neck.

This takes revealing thought-of cards to a new level. One of the most advanced techniques yet devised, yet is easy to do and has no sleights whatsoever.

Comes with envelope. and an 8.5" x 11" durable plastic gag picture that looks like it has a spilled deck on it.

NO DUPLICATE CARDS ARE PRINTED IN THE PICTURE. Every card in the picture is different! Also comes with a smaller picture for street magicians to carry in their pocket. Includes high-quality clear cardholder complete with cloth lanyard.

"Devin Knights' Foresight is a straightforward mental routine, that with proper presentation is a "killer" effect!" - Tom Craven
