Easy Magic Trick Prediction - Introduction

Here’s an easy magic trick, a mentalism-style prediction, which is great for kids and beginners. Here you accurately predict an object that a spectator will select from six that you have on display―a free choice. The trick is completely impromptu―all you need to do is collect six different objects―and at the end, you’re clean. And this one is easy to learn and perform.

Effect: After collecting and lining up six objects, you bring out a folded note and state that there’s a prediction within. The... spectator freely selects an object and when the note is opened and read, it accurately predicts the object that the spectator selected.

Secret: It’s all in the selection process that secretly forces an object. What the spectator doesn’t know is that you use each number in a different way to arrive at the desired outcome. The technique can also be used in other tricks, in particular, with the hot rod. Read on to learn this great, easy magic trick―mentalism prediction for kids and beginners.

Easy Magic Trick Prediction - Preparation

Preparation: Collect six small objects and place them into a line. Take out a piece of paper and write the following: “You will select the [third object].” In the example in the photo, the third object is the deck of cards, so in this case, you would write, “You will select the deck of cards.”

To perform the trick, ask the spectator to name a number between one and six. As you will see, each of the following steps explains how to force the deck of cards (position three) regardless of the number... named by the spectator. Fortunately, you’ll find that many people will choose “three” or “four,” the best and strongest situations, which make for clean and baffling selections.

After the spectator “freely” selects an object, have him or her pick up and read the prediction on the note.
