Hi Gang,
Can anyone let me know where to get hold of the working behind Derren's 'Guess which hand the spectator has coin in' trick?
Cheers pals,
Mark

Hi Mark

Max Somerset markets an effect based (loosely) on the Derren Brown trick you are talking about. It's called 'Colour Operthy' and is a nice routine using sweets (candy for the americans out there) instead of coins.

It is available at http://www.kidshowmagic.co.uk

You can also get an idea from Psychophysiological Thought Reading by Banachek.

Im not sure if this is the method that Derren Brown used, but to me it seem like it. It is effective.

My method, which would probably be more suitable for the Inner Thoughts section, is as follows:

Use a coin that is larger than the spectator's hands.
This method is 100% guaranteed to work.
It eliminates the need for psychological or behavioral interpretation of the subject.

That's bold and smart.

I like the "which hand is the dinner plate in?" You can do it from 20-30 feet away.
