Topic: What's the ULTIMATE Prediction?
Message: Posted by: magicianbrady (Aug 21, 2018 03:33AM)
I don't know if I'm posing in the right forum but here goes -

In stage shows, I don't think the audience likes Add A Number kind of predictions where the final prediction is not really relevant to them. I want my predictions to be funny and entertaining (ofcourse amazing too).

I'm working on a method to show that I predicted all the funny stuff that was going to happen during my show. Example: Lily will start laughing while naming the Queen of Clubs, James will want to catch me out when I perform the Linking Rings, etc.

The ULTIMATE Prediction which I have yet to see might be, to have invested in the stock market the day before the stock goes up making millions. The mentalist who is able to do that would be set for life in more ways than one :)

Derren Brown did something along those lines in one of his shows.

David Copperfield too with each spectator’s mobile.

Serial number of notes in multiple random spectators wallets. Start a religion with that.

Thanks guys for all the comments. After many months of looking, I finally found what I was looking for.... it's the Social Prediction by Debjit Magic. I am now able to do exactly what I wanted in my original post and even show that I predicted it a MONTH ago! :) This trick has great reviews but I think for some reason it went under people's radar.

Prince Monolulu was the best I have seen.

It is all about the presentation but the trick is tipping different horses to different punters so one can’t fail to forecast the winner - commonly known as the numbers game.

It is funny that mathematicians think it is – nothing to do with mathematics or physics –

Date of birth or bill serial number. No question.

Those are predictions?

These are made before the baby is born, and before the bill is printed I assume? :)

No, more like being able to predict the serial number of a chosen bill, or the birthdate of a chosen person.
