The Magician shows 8 cards to the spectator. Each card displays a different ESP symbol. The Magician lays down the cards, one at a time, on the table and asks the spectator to think of a symbol from one of the cards. After that the Magician shows 2 more cards, each displaying 4 of the symbols. The Spectator has to say ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ if they see, or don’t see, their chosen symbol on the cards. The surprise is that the Magician can tell immediately which of the 8 cards was chosen by the spectator.
Three routines are supplied which reveal the chosen card in 3 different ways. You can combine all 3 of them into one performance, use any two of the three or just use one, whichever you prefer. If you have ever wanted to completely fool your spectators, ESP Test is the way to go. For a trick that you can repeat, to the same spectator but, with a different outcome and using a different method, this effect does just that!
