Here's an idea:

You have a cased mem deck on the table. You have somebody name a number between 1-52. Alternatively, they could write it down and you use a technique to secretly gain the number. You produce a card from your pocket and place it face down on the table as a "prediction."

They then take out the cased deck and count down to the card at their number. It matches your prediction!

You might use your favorite method to get a card thought of, and they find it (I've had fun with that one.)
What would you do if you could have any one of them called for to be in your control?
If I knew tarot better I'd offer some ideas, but I know they are there. My Thoth cards will see this someday during a reading.
Maybe the spectator and the performer find that their cards happen to be together,
I have heard some great ideas that use equivoke.
Maybe get them to tell a personal story (with a set of cards on the table face down) and show that you had foresight. Simply scoop them up and flip one over at a time making connections as you go. This may be too ambiguous and up to interpretation.

Thanks Yogi.

I thought you might like it - it's one I created and used many years ago. Smile

If you are seriously interested in this methodology, there are a few other items you might wish to check out. One noteworthy one would be Daniel Madison's "The Advocate." It is less "fiddly."

Had a look. I'll check it out.

I'm going to test if this with loose leaf paper, and see what I can brew.

I am honored to offer an idea that such people may find use for.

Thank you all for you kind words. I have learned a bit about distributing my ideas from this. All great things to consider (as I am usually presented on this site.) I will continue giving this away.

I meant to write "works" between "this" and "with" in the last post.

I would like to take a look at your idea too, if I'm still on time.

I am new to posting etiquette, but I'm thinking it would be in the interest of Café members if this thread died. Please PM requests from here out. This offer will end November 1, 2016.

Thank you all for your kind words. I'm honored to have finally joined this community.
