5 Number Card Trick
The Magician shows 5 cards each with 4 different colours on them and a different number on each colour.
He gives the 5 cards to a spectator exclaiming that they are going to be used to generate a totally random number that can in no way be influenced by the spectator or the Magician.
He then asks them to pick any 4 of the cards they like (totally free choice) and he takes the remaining card.
The magician now turns his back and while he does this they can pick any one of the 4 cards and note the red number and put that card out of sight in their pocket (again this is a totally free choice)
Next they pick anyone of the 3 remaining cards and note the yellow number placing that card in their pocket (yet again this is a free choice)
Again they pick one of the remaining cards noting the green number and place it in their pocket and finally they note the blue number on the last card placing that out of sight with the other cards…. They then add the four random numbers up in their head, on paper or their phone calculator to make a final totally random generated number.
The magician turns around and asks them to concentrate on their number and he dramatically reveals the number they are thinking of.
This is a great super easy little mental effect to carry around that you will find yourself performing over and over again
