I am looking for any information about this trick. Not a reveal, but what does the spec do/see, etc...Is it found anywhere but in Messing with Minds?

Thanks.

Hi John,

In this effect the entire audience stands and thinks of a card. In so doing they become a deck of cards. You write a prediction on a board which remains in plain view. You then start an elimination process by telling certain specific cards to sit down. You then shuffle the deck, which the specs do by swapping places with the people next to them. Further blocks of cards are eliminated by telling parts of your audience to sit down. You end up with a clump of spectators who shuffle themselves further until one spectator is left as the card "on top of the deck". You invite him to shout out the card he has been merely thinking of. You reveal your prediction - it matches.

I am not aware of it appearing anywhere other than Messing With Minds, although it may. I have the EM edition, but I think it was also in the standard edition.

Hope that helps,
Martin.
