Be in control! Turn them into a winner!
Looking for a way to give out a special prize? THIS IS IT! You make a winner out of any spectator! Great for birthday parties, office parties, corporate events or any occasion where you need to control the outcome of the game!
The effect is very simple: You show your audience for different color bags. You announce that three of the bags are empty, but one of them contains a prize. You choose a lucky spectator who gets the chance to win the prize. To "make things fair", your spectator chooses a number from one to four. You hold up a board with the numbers "1" through "4". After the spectator has chosen a number, you lift the flap on the board to show the colors underneath the numbers. Your spectator gets the color bag that corresponds to the number he chose.
Now let the spectator open each of the bags he didn't choose. Of course, those bags are empty. He opens the bag he chose- and there is a note that says "YOU WIN THE PRIZE!"
This effect practically works itself. Absolutely no skill is required!
Special thanks to our friend, magician and legendary radio personality Lou Dean, for helping us demonstrate this effect.
