Hi,

Ive really been getting into mental magic and Im soo doing my first all mental show, and Im interrested in doing a chair rutine. Ive serched on the Café and I saw some topic on it but not reall what I'm looking for.

I have Banachecks castle notes which shows a rutine where you predict what chair will be left, I saw Hiro in south kore do it where you have paople have 4 cards with numbers and they are shuffled and randomally picked and then they sit at any chair and then your cble to tell what number they have, and then you prove that you knew that by showing them the bottom of the chair, I saw luke jermay do somthing semller but with colors, this is what I'm looking for

Can any of you guys help me?

Thanks,
Kyle

Kennedy has a great routine in his book "Thoughts so far"!
And Kennedy's material is just great...;-)

My understanding (and please, please, please correct me if I am wrong anybody) is that Jermay's is a variation of a Kurtz effect.

In the end, I think it'd be much simpler to figure out EXACTLY what you want to do, then work backwards. This can be said of most chair predictions (and I collected them for a while).

I guess the effect I want to do is:
5 or 6 people come up on stage and you hand 1 persone cards with #'s or colors on them and they shuffle them and randomaly hand each person a card, you have them each sit them down in a chair and your able to tell them what color or number they have and then you prove that you would know that by folding the chairs up and showing a matching color or #.

Thanks for your help,
Kyle

I agree with Lemniscate, the kind of chair test you are looking for is Gary Kurtz.

Dale, where do you hold this information ?
The Berglas routine is not to sell and besides it has nothing to do with colors.
The same for Kennedy routine or Spelmann.
It's fine to try to help but it's better if you read what people are looking for Smile

Michael Weber has an excellent and unusual version called Landing Pad.

ANd yes, the Kennedy chair routine is very good as well.

Try using the methodology from Doug Dyment's "The Real Thing." It's not a chair routine, but it would fit your parameters well. It's another unsung secret. I prefer using it the way it is, without chairs, but if ya' wanna' use chairs, why not?

In "The Real Thing," participants mix large envelopes using a fair, random-looking mixing procedure (one that isn't too procedural). They've mixed them in exactly the order you need. It seems, inexplicably, they've been influenced. I closed with this last Friday. Love it.
The secret of deception is in making the truth seem ridiculous.

I think there is one in the David Verglas book but I don't own it.

Sean Taylor's chair routine (The Throne Room)in his book Mindstorms is excellent. His book includes a performance DVD of the routine.
