I read on the Magicafe the following from the poster called:

"PSA- The effect doesn't work with New York licenses or other licenses that have a clear section".

Is this correct? That because I live in New York asking someone to use their driver's license won't work?

Many Thanks!

A clear section, as in a "window" you can actually see through? Then no, you wouldn't want to use a NY driver's license as YOUR part. But you could have them use their NY license and you use a different card of your own. You'd have to tweak the routine a little, but the general flow would be exactly the same -- they try to reveal what's on your card (whatever you've chosen to use) and you try to reveal what's on their card.

The method doesn't rely on using two of the same kind of card. Maybe a NY State ID card doesn't have a clear part? If not, get yourself one of those and use it. Or just use a credit card for your part -- ask them what bank it's on, what the last four digits are, what your middle initial is, etc.

There are a lot of ways to use the method even if you live in a state with see-through licenses. :)
