Somehow, a performer can stand away from a set of cards so he cant see them and allow a spectator to freely choose one card and cover the others. In the end, the performer correctly predicts the selected card. This one is good and will fry magicians who may be the best spectators for it. And the diabolical secret is something that I had never heard of and probably would have never have thought of.
The spectator covers the remaining cards so they can't be seen-all while the magicians back is turned. While still across the room, the magician picks up a marker and writes something on a piece of cardboard and sets it aside. In the end, the magician correctly tells the person what card they selected and why. Then the cardboard is displayed and the card that the person chose is written on it.
Offbeat, Simple Secret
The secret is new to me and its bold and diabolical. It may make you nervous when you first perform it and youll want to choose spectators wisely-an obedient, docile type will best serve this trick. Another consideration, if you perform Far Sight, it will have to be the only card effect in your show.
The trick comes with the cards, instructions and an additional aid to perform the trick. This one is good. The only downside is that it has to be the only card effect in your set, which is limiting.
