Cue the Magic (CTM) differs from Silent Treatment (ST) as follows...
Any card can be freely chosen in CTM. 53 choices.
ST appears to give a choice of many cards but not a completely free choice.
CTM uses jumbo cards. ST uses regular cards.
Performer is free to speak during the CTM routine. ST you cannot.
CTM makes your spectator the magician who takes the credit. ST makes the performer the magician who takes the credit.
CTM uses no sleight of hand. ST uses sleight of hand.
Both have a different plot.
One should note on CTM it is easy to do because the cards are large and easy to manipulate. No memory work is needed. No skill. It can be done close up. The Cue cards provide all the cover.
