Based on the old Mind Control card
trick, here is Qua-Fiki's version of the old classic performed
with his Go Fish Cards.
Im going to control your mind and make you choose one
of these little fish that I want you to choose, says the
magician. Furthermore, Im willing to bet a buck that
I can do it! He takes a dollar from his pocket or wallet
and places it on the table. Then he fans out the seven colored
fish cards and has three selected. He shows the three cards front
and back nothing unusual about them. The cards are placed
on the table face up. Lets assume the fishes on the cards
are green, red, and blue. Now he picks up the fishing pole that
was used in the Go Fish Derby and uses it to pluck a thought from
his mind and cast it over to the spectators mind.
Name one of the three cards, says the magician.
You will choose the fish I want you to choose. You are
under my complete control!
No matter what card the spectator names, the magician proves
that he knew the card would be chosen. On the back of the card
chosen by the spectator (for example the Red Fish Card) is the
handwritten message from the magician: "Last night I dreamed
you would choose the RED FISH." None of the other cards have
messages written on the backs... only the one chosen by the
spectator... every time! Unlike the former Mind Control effect,
you can perform this again after some time has gone by, and the
spectator has a truly random and free choice of any of the seven
color fish cards. At the end, even though you won the bet, you
offer the spectator the dollar and he only then discovers that it
is a fake containing your contact information, which he is sure
to use on others as a joke, thus passing around your contact
information at the same time! Pretty Sneaky!
A Two Card Monte effect with Fish Cards is included, since it
uses some of the same card gimmicks. Templates for printing out
the cards in both regular playing card size and a larger size are
included. A template for printing the phony bucks is included.
There are also templates for printing our regular size and large
size card boxes in which to keep your Go Fish cards.
