Extra Added Attraction

The label on the small box has a special purpose other than identification. You'll note that it specifies that the test number is "37." The reason should be obvious to a seasoned performer, especially if you've utilized psychological forces in your mental routines. The label provides a neat introduction to "Boxxed." However, it should be noted that this subtlety is best utilized with a large audience instead of a small group.

Before having the boxes examined, patter briefly about E.S.P. and then propose a simple little test to see how many members of the audience are on the same wavelength with you. Ask everyone to clear their mind (easier for some than others) and when you snap your fingers, each is to quickly concentrate on a 2-digit number - under fifty - with both digits being odd and different from one another. Quickly "snap" your fingers and then, ask all those in the audience who thought of the number "37" to raise their hand. If you've used this ploy previously, you'll not be surprised at the number of hands that are raised.

You then proceed with the experiment by opening the large box and removing the small one. Glance at the label, and ask a member of the audience to read aloud what's printed on the label. Everyone will be surprised that the number of the test is identical to the number thought of by a majority of the audience. Heighten the impact by exclaiming, "Now there's a strange coincidence!" Proceed with the "Boxxed" routine of your choice.
