Imagination Game by Jack Tighe - Free Video Download
This brilliant piece of mentalism (with a magic kicker) is a bone fide showstopper to have in your arsenal.
Your spectator merely IMAGINES a handful of coins. Slowly they whittle down the imaginary handful of change until they are left with just one coin. Then they flip it and (in their mind) mark the coin with a big 'X'.
Guess what - when you open your (previously empty) right hand, you reveal the exact coin they thought of... with an X on the side they named!
This is waaaaaaaaaay too good to be a free trick. But that's how much we love you!
*** PLEASE NOTE - this routine uses UK currency! But don't think that means you can't do it in other countries. Just frame the effect as "I want you to imagine we are on holiday in London. You have some change in your pocket. In the UK they have a copper 1p and 2p, and a silver 5p, 10p, 20p and 50p... etc etc". EASY!
