Another simple routine to impress your audience (you can use this in sets too) is theÂ â€œnumber reading routineâ€. Hereâ€™s how itâ€™s done: tell the spectator to think of a two digit number between 1 and 50. Both digits should be different and oddâ€¦
Now eliminate the invisible options by asking whether itâ€™s a â€˜two-digit numberâ€™ (eliminates the numbers 1-9) and odd numbers (eliminates another twenty options). The most popular number people think off is 37. If you are writing the prediction down, make the â€˜7â€™ look similar to the number â€˜1â€™, as 31 is the second most popular number.
P.S. The popular answer for a number between 1 and 1.000 is 333.
P.P.S. Magic Bullets is a must-have.
