What seemingly inocuous method could you employ to force a six digit number i.e a telephone number?

would I have to have a specific number in mind and then figure out a way to force it?

Or is there a formula that can be easily adapted?

Thanks,

Corona

Our phone numbers have at least seven digits.

Do you know the number ahead of time or are you forcing a number that occurs durring the performance?

It's a card trick force of seven numbers but you could modify it I think.....?

2 viable methods there.

Thanks for the link slim that's an interesting thread.

Perhaps I was becoming a little lured by the sirens of mathematical equations.

I think I probably answered the question myself as the answer (to use some math ju ju) would be to start with the number and break it down to smaller forced numbers i.e in pairs, then 3 different people could form the number and a fourth make the call.

thanks,

and excuse me for thinking aloud.

There is a way to force any number you want on an ungimmicked scientific calculator. A few people enter random numbers, another hits the = key and BANG, the force number pops up as the total. Call Harry at Daytona Magic.

That method is on a thread here but I don't have the time to find it. So call Harry and tell him......Hey, Corona lives in Liverpool!
There is a thead about it somewhere on the Café.

I like this idea.
Do you mean if I ring him up he'll tell me down the phone? (as long as I'm polite that is).

And Slim I didn't know there was a thread about me being from liverpool ; )

all the best, Corona

I just talked to Harry. I may go by and see him a little later today. He said that the effect is on one of his DVD's. He said that it's really clean.

It looks great, nothing happens that wouldn't normally happen when genuinely adding up several numbers on a calculator. And, being that the calculator is ungimmicked you could borrow one (as long as you had a few seconds with it alone before the performance).
I think Daytona sells this for around $30.00 and though it comes with a calculator, keep in mind you are paying for the secret for the most part.

Thanks pit boss,

My cuffs are a little frayed right now, but it sounds like a great idea, maybe I can figure it out from here ; )

Psi-Kalc is the latest doodad. It is perfectly normal looking, but forces whatever number you need for it to, up to 8 or 9 digits. A telephone number would be no problem.

You could use a forcing matrix and have the spect. add the numbers at the end with a calculator.
Scot Cram provided this excellent link on constructing one and and how it works:

Larry, make sure that people understand that the page to which you link is Doug Dyment's page, who deserves all the credit for the work! I don't want to step on any toes.

Good point. Doug did a great job explaining the force. Thanks again Scott for bringing us that link.
