Hi guys kinda need help for a presentational view i guess for this trick i'm still trying to get right. Basically i force a coin side (tails) and a denomination of a coin (50 Cents) as well, before hand i would've wrote it on a business card or sms'd to them the prediction. For the denomination part i got a magicians choice thing like the usual 1 hand then the other hand, then final decision thing, that part is clean enough for me.

However the tails/heads part i kinda looking for a better way to present the choice. At the moment i'm show 2 coins (one heads and one tails) first then they cover one with their hand, and thats how they choose the side of the coin. However its kinda redundant i feel to use that kinda way to pick a side of a coin. I was wondering what do u guys think i should do? Should i just use the magicians choice for heads or tails with verbal choice? i'm open to suggestions.

Thanks in advance

There's only one commonly acceptable way to choose heads or tails. You're going to have to flip the coin.

Of course, a shuttle pass for a double tail coin guarantees your outcome, but they don't need to know that part. ;)

I agree with Dave. People will think you are an idiot if you complicate things just to get a heads or tails answer. If I recall correctly there is an instant download on this site for a controlled coin flip. I remember someone showing me how it was done and it is very workable.


As always,

Dylan beat me to it. It is a very deceptive method and you should have no issue having it down in no time
