This is a copy of my message that was posted in another section but that I thought might be worth posting here aswell.

I am looking for a few people to take a look at something I'm putting together that contains a variety of open prediction style effects.

I no longer use cards in my material and so thought I'd put out some of the pieces I used to do, and I'd like for those who are willing to take a look and have a go at the various pieces and get back to me with how they played for them.

I won't be sending this out until next weekend, but if those who are interested could PM me that'd be great.


Im only looking for those who will genuinely give these a try, so please only PM if you will really perform the contents and not just read the explanations and get back with how you think they would play for you.

Here is a brief description of a few of the pieces included-

OP1- A deck is handed to the participant and then the performer openly predicts a playing card, let's say the 4 of Clubs. The participant now deals through the cards one at a time into a face-up pile and are asked to stop dealing whenever they like and deal the card they stop at off to the side (face-down), they then continue dealing until they've exhausted the pack... the 4 of Clubs has not been seen, they now flip over the card they stopped at and it's the 4 of Clubs (or whatever card you predicted).

Includes a variation that can make use of a borrowed deck that is completely untouched by the performer.

No gimmicks and completely hands off, works 99% of the time.

OP2- Same as above though a gimmick is involved but works 100% of the time.

Completely hands off.

OP3- A deck is handed to the participant for shuffling and then placed down on a surface area, the performer now openly names a card, the participant now cuts the deck into 2 piles and one half is eliminated... this is continued until only 1 card remains, the predicted card.

No gimmicks and works 100% of the time.

OP4- A deck is handed to the participant and then the performer openly predicts a playing card, the cards are now dealt one at a time onto the performers outstretched hands until the participant feels like stopping, the card stopped at is the predicted card.

No gimmicks and works 100% of the time.

Well there are brief descriptions of 4 of the pieces, though within are multiple others and as a bonus is my impromptu take on the ACAAN plot.

I'll leave it their for now, PM if you're interested in having a looksy.

I'll let 5 copies go, though not necessarily on a first come first serve basis... I'll pick 5 and let them know before the end of next week.

Cheers.

Sounds like you have some interesting ideas here.

I'd get ready for a lot of PMs if I were you.

Good luck with your endeavour
