After all, a spectator doesn't have to figure out the details -- if a pathway is immediately apparent, the magical effect is lost. In this case, it would seem that many spectators (the kind that like detective stories) would immediately think, "Oh, clever, some sort of elimination principle." They would think that if A, B & C closed their eyes when three symbols were mentioned, and B & D closed their eyes when some colors were mentioned, the performer had a way of backtracking. This explanation may be wholly or partially wrong, but as long as it occurs to some spectators, we've lost them. Does the presentation eliminate this "obvious" but possibly wrong interpretation?
