This effect can be used any time any where and for a small or big crowd. I have only performed the
basic effect so far. The only problem I have had is that the person who you give the coin to must
understand that they can tell the truth or lie but they must be consistent. I have explained there
simple instructions to several people in agonizing detail and they still manage to screw it up. They
will answer with a lie to the first question and tell the truth to my second question. It's no
reflection on this great effect, just be aware that some people cannot understand and obey the
instructions. The effect is clean all the way through and finishes clean and reset ready to go
If you want to do a coin trick but are having trouble with palming, slight of hand, etc
this is a good trick for you.
Ah, so questions are being asked. That is not shown in the demo. I want to discuss the ethics of this kind of practice. Sometimes an edit is done to conceal a subtle move that would be revealed by repeated viewing, but would not (if done well) be noticed by an audience. I bought a trick on the basis of such a demo and I felt a bit disappointed, but at least the practice is understandable. But, in the present case, there is no subtle move (apparently). What is being hidden is what would be visible (or, in this case, hearable) to everyone present for the performance. That, to me, is indefensible. My advice to prospective buyers: if the demo does not show the entire trick from beginning to end, with no cutaways, don't buy it.
This comment is very valuable for any buyers.Thanks
Considering that this question technique isn't really anything new and most of us have heard the inquiries before, just about a different subject or in a slightly different form e.g. two doors, one leads to certain death, the other not so (reference the old David Bowie kids movie, Labyrinth), You've got to understand why you don't see/hear the whole process.
I mean, if you hear the dialogue, you don't need the trick.
Maybe give them a little leeway on this one.
MagicYoda, I understand your point,
but they STILL could've at least mentioned that in the ad copy,
without going into detail on exactly what the words are.
"Asking the participant only two questions,
you'll instantly KNOW which hand she holds the coin!!"
The above is both ethical and also does not give too much away.
