Three randomly selected numbers give birth to a magical moment in time - SIGMA.
SIGMA is the latest release from the creative mind of Sean Goodman.
Four sets of cards are introduced to the audience, and are then freely mixed and distributed.
Three sets contain cards having three digit numbers, all different. These are totally shuffled by three spectators. A card is freely selected by each of the three spectators.
The final set of cards contains pictures/photographs representing a variety of different historical events in time - for example, the launch of the iPhone (2007), the patent for the electric lightbulb (1879). One picture is selected by a spectator and placed aside, facedown.
Three totally random numbers are created from the previously selected cards, and these are totaled. The answer, let's say is 1,988.
The face down picture card, which was selected earlier, is now turned over. The date on this card is 1988 - amazingly matching the randomly created number!
SIGMA is a pocket-sized piece of mentalism, suitable for both close-up AND stand-up/cabaret situations. Packs small, but plays BIG.
SIGMA utilizes a classic number forcing technique which is woven into the routine in a totally deceptive manner. There are THREE different outcomes, which makes SIGMA also suitable for table hopping situations.
SIGMA requires no cribs, no memory work and is instantly reset. It is also simple to perform - you just need to concentrate on your presentation, as the cards virtually do all the work for you.
Included in the instructions are various other handlings, including a chair prediction presentation for stage work, having an extra kicker finish.
SIGMA comes complete with four sets of beautifully produced, poker-sized cards (9 cards in each set), all contained in a drawstring bag.
