Sixth Sense - Henry Evans
Item Number: TA6342
After a brief introduction speaking about intuition and the possibility of applying it to events of real life, a spectator is asked to shuffle a part of a deck of cards. Then, these cards are dealt in two piles, as if there were two players of a game. The spectator is invited to try to guess the color of the cards in one of the piles, to see how good his intuition is. He ends by guessing around half of the cards colors. Now the magician takes the other pile and proves his intuitive skills are beyond normal guessing all cards's colors without a single mistake.
The magician now refers to the number 7 and what it symbolizes: the seven prophecies, the seven wonders, the seven capital sins. He says he needs to make four groups of seven cards each, so he asks a spectator to remove 28 cards from the deck, one at a time. The magician shuffles the cards and then asks the spectator to riffle shuffle them again. Now the cards are dealt in four piles and the spectator chooses one, getting rid of the others. The spectator takes these cards and fans them so he can see the faces. The magician now starts telling him how many hearts there are, how many clubs, how many picture cards, and finally names all the cards one by one.
