I am a complete amature but I am learning. Thanks to one of the finest web sites on the internet I am moving away from magic & routines that come pre-packaged and I have come up with a simple idea and I wondered if anyone else had. It goes like this: On the stage there will be a stand with 6 large playing cards on them. (themed in an oriental fashion) A spectator will pick one at random. I will then have them pick a fortune cookie from a large bowl/bag. When they read the fortune it will be the card selected. Any ideas or thoughts would be most welcome.

I'm not sure if this can be done, but I remember my wife and I walking around China Town in San Francisco and there were places where they were making fortune cookies. Maybe you could contact them and see if they would put the fortunes in the cookies that you desire.
Sounds like a clever idea.
Then you could either force the card you needed forced or the right cookie you needed picked.

Not quite sure I understand what you are asking, but how to for** the fortune cookie sounds like the crux of it. If your are having a cookie box with lids both top and bottom, and a transparent for** bag in each compartment, you have covered 4 options. What about using 5 cards rather than 6 and writing "You'll chose this one" in big letters of the back of the fifth one?

This was marketed years ago as "Fortune Cookie Surprise". It still may be available but if not there are plenty of places to order specially printed fortune cookies on-line. Here is just one of them: http://www.fortunecookiesupply.com/ .

You don't have to order or have made any special fortune cookies... You can buy a box at your local store.. or you can purchase them from our local favorite Chinese restaurant. They are very cheap.... take put your hand under some running water from your sink.. and (flick your fingers) spray the fortune cookie with water... Put it in the microwave for about 15-20 seconds.. the cookie will become soft and bendable. You can easily unfold the cookie enough to get the orig paper out of there and place in whatever fortunes you want.

DO THIS QUICKLY !!!! once you get the fortune in re-fold the cookie back.. it will harden again quickly back into shape.. If you don't get it back the way it was (originally) it will harden however you have it.. and you will have to re-wet it again and microwave it again. but the more you do it.. it will start to taste a bit weird.. IF you want to give it away to be eatten.

If you wet the fortune cookie you can open it and put in your own message. then leave it out and it will harden again.

If you need to force a Fortune Cookie from a Cookie Jar, you'll find it all worked out in The Wizards' Journal #16 - The Cookie Jar Force, on my site.

THANKS!!! Koolmagic114

I'm going to try this next time I get a fortune cookie.

This might even be a KOOL different way to do the bill in lemon trick.
