"Business Card Magic has been around a long time, but this is a new twist on it as a mental effect that you can pull out and do anywhere, any 'Time' (literally). Packs small, plays BIG, and spectators will remember you, not just by your card but by the whole experience."

-Marion Boykin

You get asked to perform an effect but having nothing on you besides a pen and some business cards. Seize the day with Copperwave. Make an impression and be remembered!

"Storyline" suggested is optional and up to the performer.

- Storyline: "Did you know that language, actions, motions and body language can influence another person? Let's do an experiment"
- You pull out your normal business cards and show them casually on both sides.
- You draw a very basic clock on the back and ask the spectator to think of a time.
- Using that time, he comes up with another random time.
- At that random time, you actually give the spectator the choice to change! (Unlike older methods).
- You read their minds and draw the prediction on the clock. (Storyline: "Did I read your mind or did my body language influence you?")
- You then mix up that business card with all your other business cards. A mess of cards where no one can possibly know where that card is now!
- You ask the spectator to pick a random number. (In this instance you tell the spectator that it's their turn to be the magician).
- You count down to that number while casually showing the backs and fronts of the cards.
- At that number, you reveal that the spectator magically selected the only card with a drawing on it. (Showing part of the drawing). And then revealing that you predicted the time.
- Handle out the business card to the spectator who can keep it. A souvenir that can bring on business and to help people remember you.

Business card redux!! Report this review

I am always looking for some new way to incorporate a business card, and this is the most creative one I have seen lately. Develop your own patter and this becomes a really nice icebreaker.
