The Blurb

One of Luke Jermay’s highlight effects is finally available in its newest version.

The mentalist/magician take a deck of cards, explaining that they are used during Psychology Tests in order to develop and determine special, hidden abilities.

He shows the cards, whose faces are either entirely red or entirely black. He gives the deck to the spectator to shuffle. When the spectator believes the cards to be well shuffled, he gives the deck back to the mentalist/magician.

The mentalist/magician holds the perfectly equalized** cards, closes his eyes and positions his open palm over the top of the deck; no one can see the color of the card’s face. After a moment of concentration, he announces the color of several cards. When it is checked, the audience can see that the mentalist/magician was correct. He then hands the rest of the shuffled deck to someone new. When the spectator is convinced that the cards are well shuffled, again, the magician recommences the process. The magician/mentalist guesses the colors of the remaining cards, one by one, each verified by the audience to be the correct face color selection.

Jheff's Guide

WHAT IT IS:
Effect with Props

HOW ACCURATE OR COMPLETE THE BLURB IS:
Mostly.  The routine isn’t as detailed as it could be, but it’s close enough.

SUITABLE VENUES:
Close-up, Parlour, Walkaround

JHEFF’S JUDGMENT:
This “Par-Optic Vision” effect uses an entirely different method than Jermay’s earlier AN EXTRAORDINARY EXHIBITION OF SEEING WITH THE FINGERTIPS.  Though I think having more cards than twelve would make this more effective, this is still a strong effect.
