Clone Zone Ghost Flight Mind Master

By Peter Duffie

Fans of Peter Duffie will want to check out these three new tricks from the sneaky Scotsman. "Clone Zone" is a packet trick in which four double-blank cards temporarily take on the faces of four other cards. At the end of the trick the four of kind become blank faced as well.

In "Ghost Flight," each card of a four of a kind becomes completely blank when placed between two double-blank cards. The four of a kind appears beneath a piece of cardboard under a spectator's hand.

My favorite of the three is "Mind Master!" A spectator is given a small datebook. From a choice of over 60 names, a second spectator selects a husband and wife. A third spectator reads a letter which has been in full view of the audience. This letter predicts the day of the couple's wedding. The datebook is opened to the predicted date. Listed against that date is the name of the couple selected by the second spectator. This reads a bit confusing, but in performance the effect is pretty clear cut, and is a clever use of several familiar principles.

Since the first two routines use gaffed cards, you will have to manage your audience appropriately. However, in the "Mind Master!" routine everything is examinable, making it an excellent trick for the real world.
