Numerical Correspondence by Magic Wagon(c. 2008) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
The classic Bob Mason effect Predicta Total is a wonderfully clever effect, but the props are fairly cheap and due to the hardness of the board it is possible to hear the discs at the time of the “move”. Not so with this beautiful outfit from one of my favorite high-end manufacturers: Magic Wagon.
Thanks to the plush velour any sound is minimized. So now you have a quality item built with the best materials to suit the cleverness of the method.
Effect: The following routine is based on the original “Nostradamus” that was first marketed by Mr. Charles Gauci in 2000. Please click HERE if you would like to purchase a close up version of this effect.
The performer displays a wooden board with sixteen brass hangers. He also displays sixteen numbered chips, each bearing the number 1 through 16. The performer hands anyone a sealed prediction and then proposes to place the chips face down onto the board in an order to be completely determined by the audience. Four spectators are each allowed to mix the chips thoroughly and direct the performer as to where to hang each and every one of the chips on the board.
When completed, the performer turns the sixteen chips around and the figures are added together. He then explains that with the simple displacement of just one of the chips, the number formed could be changed dramatically, even by thousands.
The spectator holding the prediction is instructed to open it and read it aloud. To everyone’s surprise, the resulting total matches exactly a sealed prediction given to a spectator since the beginning of the show!
- There are over 300,000 different combinations!
- Only one prediction used and there is no secret writing of any kind in the above routine!
- A truly baffling feat and a real puzzler!
The board is approximately 9.5” square. Complete with a custom designed Chip Holder & a display stand.
Finished in the finest possible coating with hand polishing and sanding in between.
Approx. Price: $249.00 (2008) ***Notice: I am not a dealer and this item is not for sale on this site. It maybe available in the links below or at our sister site: qualitymagicsales.com, but not from here so please do not ask.
