"Limited edition of 24 of Paul Romhany's complete Chair Routine is available for the working performer. This is one of the most direct chair test routines available today, and makes the perfect opening for a magician OR mentalist. Paul Romhany has taken Wayne Roger's Force 4 and put together a very strong routine that combines a Chair Test Routine with a Bank Night routine. Unlike a lot of other chair test routines that are very complicated and hard for the audience to follow, Paul has designed his routine to work for all types of audiences from corporate shows, private parties, cabaret and cruise ships. What makes this such a great opening is how simple and direct it is - three spectators choose a different color and sit on the matching chair!! No fumbling, secret writing, palming or FORCES of ANY KIND - everything is a FREE CHOICE!!
EFFECT: A paper ball is thrown out in to the audience to randomly select three volunteers. Four envelopes are introduced and told that one contains a $100 note, while the others contain colored pieces of paper. Three spectators get to choose an envelope and upon opening they find they have a colored piece of paper. They then sit in the corresponding chairs to their chosen colors. The performer is left with the last envelope which contains the $100 note. Is it 'influence or intuition?"
The original paper ball is opened by one spectator and EVERYTHING that happened is predicted. Each spectator is told which chair they will choose and the magician will end up with the money. It's THAT direct and thanks to Wayne's folder and the structure of Paul's routine
BONUS: To follow up Paul performers Neal Scryer's Last One Standing routine where the spectator's mix themselves up without the performer watching and two sit down leaving only one. The performer clearly shows his prediction (which can be held at the very start by an audience member) and has predicted the PERSON who will be left standing.
The entire routine is a feature of Paul's current act and incorporates Wayne Rogers' clever Force 4 gimmick folio. Paul gets a good 7 to 8 minutes out of this routine and it packs FLAT and plays HUGE. He has performed it under ALL conditions from cabaret, private home parties and in 1500 seat theaters around the world.

I was under the impression that a very similar routine came with the Wayne Rogers Force 4 Folio. It seems the obvious advantage of the Force 4. Hopefully someone can chime in if they have any knowledge of this.
