Hi, I just purchased a great little gimmick trick called "Super Sight." I love the way it's made and have already had my money's worth of fun from it, but I was hoping to take it to a darker level. As I don’t have a lot of experience with the bizzare but would like more; if anyone has any ideas for a story line or just a little inspiration as to how this could be something other that a fun puzzle or an esp test I would be greatly appreciative. Thanks!

I'm not familiar with "super sight". Could you describe it? Smile
What is the color of magic?

You know, that's a great idea... guess it would help...

5 brass coin shaped disks of different colors. One color goes in the spectator's pocket, and the other four go into a brass tube that is screwed tight and returned to the magician, who then through whatever revelation method is chosen determines the color that was omitted.

It can clearly be passed as an esp test but I would like something more fun for it... thanks for asking. Smile

Bob Cassidy has a good take on this...

How about this:

Instead of just blurting out the color they have in their pocket or hand. Give them a short color reading.

Example: You have decerned that the color they hold is "Red". You can say something like:
"You know the color you chose has a lot to say about you. The color YOU chose says that you are a person on the go - a real take charge type of person. No moss is allowed to grow under your feet. Procrastination is a word not found in your dictionary. You believe that if the job is to be done right you will do it yourself, always ready to roll up your sleaves and jump right in. Your personality chose the color for you and that color is "RED".

Then have them open their hand and show everyone that is indeed the color they chose.
This accomplishes two things.
1. The chicks will line up for you to show them this effect. (Ladies always love a reading)
2. They won't care how it was done. :0)

Just my 2 drakma worth,
Doug

Greetings,

JustAlan has the best take on this. The disks are stops from a trumpet. JustAlan explains how his father worked on instruments and that these stops actually belonged to Houdini who was in fact learning the trumpet. JA shows a picture of the two of them, Houdini holding the trumpet.

He then shows how they can "escape" just like their owner did...

I would suggest following in that line (after all, this is the bizarre group Smile )

So, what are the disks?
* money from an ancient civilization
* found in the skulls of mummies
* toy bullets from a 1950s space gun that once belonged to your best friend - now departed
* game pieces to an ancient Egyptian board game used in selecting those worthy of magical apprenticeship

Good Luck,
Sam Haine

Sam,

I think you're confusing "Psychic Escape" with "Second Sight."

Both use similar props, but one is a divination, and the other is a penetration.
