Can someone describe the effect of this trick? And where can I find it?

Thanks in advance

Plot: the performer talks about Renaissance Italy, and the position of power occupied by the Borgia family -- a position maintained through a combination of god-like wealth and devil-like machinations. Lucretia, in particular, seemed to have a special gift for poisoning those who stood in her way. At this point, members of the audience are given invitations to join the performer onstage in an enactment of one of Lucretia's dinner parties.

Goblets are freely selected, each of which contains a pellet. Guests exchange with each other, and with the performer, exactly as they wish. And when everybody unfolds their pellets, it's revealed who lives and who dies. The performer lives. Everybody else dies.

It's an ingenious reworking of the "Bank Night" plot. And it's in a book that you must buy: "Brain Food." Highly recommended.

David was here in Phoenix a few monthths ago and did this effect ( I was chosen to attend the dinner with two other spectators ).

To be their in person is to appreciate David's theatrics and showmanship. It's spooky to be part of it.
