Checkmate (Willi Wessel Collection) by Alan Warner(c. 1981) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
This effect is stronger than you might think. At first glance Checkmate looks like you are predicting a one out of three outcome, but in fact you not only predict which color chess piece they will choose, but also which plaque they will place it on.
The chess piece and plaque chosen can be different each time, although the effect cannot be repeated immediately to the same audience. It does use multiple outs but they are constructed very cleaning and logically into the wooden tablets and not are contrived as is quite often the case with multiple out effects. Each outcome is as solid as the others so it really doesn’t matter which color they choose or which plaque they place it on, the effect is equally as strong.
This is a very clean effect and method, that resets instantly and is very easy to learn. It has an elegant simplicity that Alan excels at and you will enjoy.
Effect: Stained wooden plaques are used in this effect together with three chess pieces, each of which is painted in a different colour.
A spectator is given A FREE CHOICE of one of the coloured chess pieces and A FREE CHOICE of one of the plaques, and is then requested to indicate this latter choice by placing his chosen chess piece on the selected plaque.
The performer, however, is able to predict not only which chess piece would be selected but also the spectator’s choice of plaque.
The selection of both the chess piece and plaque is absolutely free – NO FORCE IS USED.
