I am studying the "Back to the Future" effect from the book Card College Light by Roberto Giobbi.

How the effect is presented:

"The magician transports himself into the future, memorizes what happens there, returns to the past, and then predicts the occurrence in the present: a confusing story with a clear effect."

...could it actually create some confusion for the spectator?

What do you think?

Do you perform this effect with the same presentation as Giobbi?

Also, I could NOT find a video of this effect.

Thanks!

Best regards

Yes,

I have been using this kind of plot both for this classic trick and for a trick read in a Eugene Burger book (this one involving three cards).
The "go to the future and back" is a good idea since it steers away from the usual "I put down a prediction ..."

When you introduce the trick and the plot, you need to be very clear about what will be going on and therefore you need to have a good script.
