Fun and easy mindreading effect!Attention teachers! This is another great effect for teaching world geography!
You show your spectators six large cards, each with a different nation's flag.One by one, a spectator eliminates the flags, simply by moving one flag to the bottom and putting the flag on top to the side.Eventually the spectator ends up holding only one flag.
You announce that you "knew" he was going to choose that flag.In fact, you've heard of "X marks the spot"?Well, in this case, X marks the chosen flag.You have the spectator turn over the flag- and there is indeed an "X" on the back!
But wait a minute...Maybe all of the cards have an X on the back.Let your spectator turn over all of the other cards.They do have letters on the back.But all the letters are different.AND THE LETTERS SPELL OUT THE NAME OF THE CHOSEN COUNTRY!
This is a really colorful and unusual routine!BEST OF ALL- NO SKILL NEEDED!
And that's all you need!
This video was filmed in 2020, which is why we are wearing the protective face shields!Happily, shields are no longer a requirement, and we plan to film the demo over again without them.We like this demo so much, though, that we are leaving it "as is" for now. Hope you enjoy it!
