"This is my favorite effect of the year." Rob Jacks
You Know is a mind-boggling demonstration of mentalism using regular UNO Cards. This powerful prediction effect is so FAIR and so DIRECT, it's truly baffling. David Jonathan has dusted off a long-forgotten and criminally underused principle, and modernized it with delightful new twists to create an unbelievable hands-off prediction that is INCREDIBLY EASY to perform!
After briefly bringing attention to an envelope in your pocket, you introduce a pack of UNO cards. A spectator then names one of the four colors in the deck as their "target color". They then take all the UNO cards and genuinely shuffle them in a random order. Looking through the shuffled deck of cards, they remove the first three cards of their target color that they come across. The numbers on these cards are then added together to create a totally random sum. You then remove the envelope from your pocket to show that a number written on it matches this total!
But, that's not all!!!
You then open the envelope to show that you also correctly predicted the COLOR and the EXACT THREE NUMBERS they'd arrive at.
- NO Gimmicks
- NO Sleight of hand
- Ends clean
You Know is a super fun and unique change of pace from standard boring card tricks. While this effect was designed for UNO cards, it can be easily adapted to playing cards. You're also going to learn a variety of extra ideas and handlings for incorporating the You Know concepts into other routines like Book Tests, Pin Code Revelations and more.
