WHISPERS FOUR TIMES THREE - W/DVD * by John F. Mendoza
John Mendoza has always stated that magic must be simple. That is, the effect must be so simple that the spectators need not make any mental effort to understand what effect took place. "I feel that if an effect can be just that PLUS have a totally unexpected kicker climax that also requires no thought or 'figuring out' on the part of the spectators, you have a perfect piece of magical entertainment. This routine is just that." It begins with a simple "puzzle" type trick that is quite befuddling. Your audience will unsuccessfully try to figure it out. This is followed with an excellent transposition which seems to be a surprise finish, but then you really stun the audience with a totally unexpected additional climax. Three cards are chosen and placed face down on the table, sight unseen. Anyone now names any one of the three face cards, Jacks, Queens or Kings and the performer states that the chosen face cards will "whisper" the identities of the three selections. The reason for using face cards is that they are the only cards able to whisper since no other cards have mouths. We'll assume the Queens are chosen. The four Queens then proceed to reveal each of the three selections. Then three of the Queens change into the selections and for a final killer climax the remaining four cards, thought to be the Queens, unexpectedly become the four Aces! No gimmicks, and you are able to perform with any deck of cards, any time! Demo DVD also included.
