“Open Prediction” is as simple and direct as it gets. You begin by placing a single prediction card onto the table. The spectator is then invited to select any card from a regular shuffled deck. The spectator’s choice is real, and there is no force of any kind. Amazingly, when both cards are revealed, they are found to be perfect mates. It really doesn’t get any cleaner than this!
“Catch Me if You Can” is an absolute powerhouse of a routine containing so many magical effects, it should be illegal! The routine begins as a typical sandwich-style routine — things quickly spiral into a flurry of magical mayhem. The selected card slowly vanishes from between two cards, only to reappear face up in the deck a split second later. After removing the card from the deck, it is discovered that the back of this card has somehow changed color. Oh, and all of this can be achieved with a spectator’s signed card!
“WTF” is a devastating translocation effect, which is only made possible using the gimmicked card supplied. Two spectators each select a card from the deck (they may be signed if you wish). After committing them to memory, each of the cards is replaced and the deck is given a thorough shuffle. With a simple wave of the hand, two mates appear face up onto of the deck, with one card trapped between them. This proves to be the second spectator’s card. After having this card examined, it is very slowly and deliberately replaced between the two mates. Instantly and visually this card changes into the first spectators’ selection. The other card has vanished completely, and is discovered moments later in the magician’s pocket, wallet, or indeed, any other place you may desire!
All these incredible effects are available in Fantastic 3!
