Back in 2008 at the Blackpool Magic Convention, Magicbox proposed a rather unique competition. We had an idea for a great effect but no method to go with it. We asked our customers to submit a solution to the effect, with the best entry having the effect produced under their name at the following year’s convention. The winner would also receive a substantial credit which could be spent in store on magic goods.
Whilst all of the entries were very good, there were two which stood out from the rest. These two entries combined made for a workable routine which also covered many of the downfalls that the other methods had not accounted for. These were created by Andrew Webb and Rob Lupine!
The magician displays a prediction which is inside a sealed envelope. The prediction is placed into the magician’s pocket where it is visible for the remainder of the routine.
He then hands the spectator an ordinary pack of tic-tacs and asks them to remove about a dozen from the box. The magician then asks the spectators to make a small row of tic-tacs containing a mix of orange and green. The magician then removes the prediction which correctly matches the spectators’ colour combination!
The magician then offers to try something a little more difficult. The spectator is asked to take more tic-tacs from the box; this time keeping them hidden. They are further instructed to separate the orange from the green, holding one colour in each hand.
Not only is the magician able to tell the spectators which hand holds which colour, he is also able to tell the exact quantities in each hand!
Comes complete with two regular packs of tic-tacs plus everything you need to perform this straight out of the packet!
