Ultimate Prediction by Maverick Magic
Effect: The performer holds a 3”x 16” envelope with lines running vertically on it. Inside is a card with numbers randomly arranged from 0 to 9. The performer explains that each line on the outside of the envelope runs through the center of each number on the card inside. A second envelope is displayed in full view of the audience and the performer explains that it contains his prediction of the number that will be selected.
A spectator is asked to cut along any line of their choice. After the cut has been made, the performer removes the card from the envelope and shows the audience the number that has been cut through. This number is identical to the performers prediction.
The Ultimate Prediction comes with a supply of 20 3”x 16” cards and for intimate performances an additional 20 2”x 8” cards. As an added bonus to the Ultimate Prediction, there is a second effect that can boggle the minds of both the audience and the spectator. After the matching prediction has been shown, the performer tears the card while informing the spectator that he has the ability to take all the strength out of them. The performer hands the card to the spectator who through trying everything cannot tear the card. This can be repeated as many times as you choose.
