"It brings me great joy to have tools like this in my back pocket for impromptu situations. This will be particularly effective performing a prediction casually and quickly in a wide variety of situations. Once you learn this tool it will be a fun thing that you will always have and be ready to use." - Paul Draper

"This is a wonderful piece of magic from the brilliant mind of Richard Osterlind, really playful and engaging. Simone does a great job of walking you through everything clearly and providing you with outs just in case your spectator goes a little wild on you." - Carisa Hendrix

Predict-Tac-Toe is a classic prediction effect with a simple game everyone is familiar with. Using what seems like an ordinary game of Tic-Tac-Toe you can predict the future, show a very strong coincidence, or even control the mind of your opponent. Originally created by Richard Osterlind, and now presented by Simone Turkington, this is Predic-Tac-Toe.

Here’s what happens:

You propose a simple game of Tic-Tac-Toe with one of your spectators. You make the first move, and after that your friendly opponent is free to make any move they want. After a spirited game you come to a draw. That’s when you allow them to open an envelope that has been sitting out in the open the entire time. Inside is a photograph with a prediction of the exact outcome of the game. They can keep the photograph and the game, because everything is examinable.

Building off the excellent work of Martin Gardner, Richard Osterlind’s Predict-Tac-Toe takes this mental mystery to a whole new level of impossibility. Easy to do, and requiring no special gimmicks, you can even have the final prediction in your wallet or on your social media. Predict-Tac-Toe is a real winner.

This is a perfect table worker. You don't have to carry a thing and it's completely impromptu. This little gem takes only a few minutes to get the concept and it will be time to use it. It's a catchy prediction to a classic game almost everyone knows. I am actually headed to a Nightclub tonight and this is going with me, I can't wait to use it.

Great simple effect Report this review

I really like this effect because it is simple to perform and easy to master. This piece uses only pen and paper so it can be done anywhere. Everyone knows how to play tick tac toe and this effect allows you to predict a games outcome. The explanation is easy to follow and you will be doing the trick in no time.

I love this one, a blast from the past Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 21st, 2020
When I first heard the name of this effect, it drummed up lots of memories playing this game when I was a kid, sometimes just to pass the time. Winning was always a challenge in this very simple game and having a strategy was also what it was all about. But now being able to predict the outcome … wow! Is Predict-tac-toe a magic trick, is it a prediction, is it a feat of mentalism? Yes, it all of that and lots of fun.

How handy is this one, like anywhere, anytime all you need is a pen and paper and you are ready to go. Meet some new people and once they find out that you are a Magican the next comment is usually “show me a trick” and with this one you are always prepared and ready to amaze them.

Simone does a great job of explaining and teaching this effect with no gimmicks, nothing to make or prepare, just your prediction either written on paper in an envelope or using a photo as she demonstrated or use a picture on your phone. I like the photo idea as it adds a little extra dimension. This is so simple to learn, nothing sophisticated, nothing difficult to memorize. As we know, sometimes things don’t work out as planned so you will also learn some alternate ‘things’ to ensure this effects success. This purchase also comes with two .pdf attachments, one from Richard Osterlind with some further hints.

This is definitely a great buy, you will be able to start performing this within minutes and blowing away your spectators. I love this one and will certainly be one of my new go to’s.

I predict tac tor will do it for ya! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 21st, 2020
I'll never forget the time at the restaurant where a little kid beat me 4 times at Tic Tac Toe.
If I had this back then I would have had a better outcome!

This is such a great piece of anytime mentalism.
It's not hard to remember how to finish and she even explains if something should go wrong.

You can carry the picture in your wallet or even on your phone.

Another hit from Mr. Osterlind! As usual 😎

A cool impromptu prediction that can be done anywhere anytime with just a pen and paper Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 21st, 2020
This is a great skill to have memorized and it's not too difficult. If you can remember just a few simple steps, you can predict the outcome of a game of tic tac toe. There have been a few times where I've been asked to do magic for friends or family and I haven't had anything on me. Now I just need a pen and paper and I've got this great effect. Get this if you could use a trick you'll almost always be able to perform.

Tic-Tac Sweet! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 21st, 2020
This is a great no card impromptu effect that can be done anywhere or anytime. It requires no preparation and is suitable for beginners or master magicians. It is also very fun! You will be able to predict with 100% certainty the outcome of any tic-tac-toe game. Then you surprise your contestant with a photo or handwritten pad with the exact location of all the x's and o's. It so easy and fun.

Tic Tac Whoa Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 21st, 2020
Cons: My cheesy title, has a chance for failure against opponents that don't know how to play to win
Pros: Easy to do, great instructions that are easy to follow, impromptu

This is a very straight forward effect that can be done anywhere at the drop of a hat. Very easy to do and it's actually nice to see the strategy behind winning at Tic Tac Toe as well. The only thing I would add is to make a picture of you winning, or losing, as well so that you have more outs for predictions. If you cover all the bases then you won't need to keep playing if the board doesn't match the 1 prediction picture you had.
