Please don't do the Michael Finney gag. That was shown but not offered for performance rights, plus I think it works better with his theme.
But so Im not ALL critisism
Spend some time with John Archer and learn how to incorporate comedy and mentalism.

For by GRACE are ye saved through faith; and that NOT OF YOURSELVES: it is the gift of God: NOT OF WORKS, lest any man should boast.

Yea I was thinking about that, I would feel rather un-original. I will look into John Archer stuff, I will also email John Stetson.

The one thing I always hated about that effect was the force for the final prediection

so here's how I did it and, though not all too funny, it got a good reaction

I used it at my local rings' x-mass party as a "magic gift predictor"

I asked people to think of gifts they wanted for the first two

for the last I asked the spec. to think of a place he/she would like to travel to. but instead of having the predection match what they were thinking I taped a dollar bill to the secret place (shh) so instead of "hawaii" matching "hawaii" a dollar appeared in the predection place. I then just handed them the dollar saying something like "now you're $1 closer to that dream vacation"

BTW, I own the older version, with chalk, I don't know if that would work with the newer versions.

Six, try to put a funny one liner after telling the person to think about something. For example: "Bob, think of the part of a person's body... Besides that private part." John, picture how old you think I am.... Are you trying to offend me?" "Dave, think of any number... I do not have enough chalk to write down that number, so make it 1 - 100." If you mention the previous statements in a natural manner, you might not get a laugh. It is all in how you present it with your vocal and personality.
