We are very proud to present Francis Menotti's hit parlor trick, which just fooled Penn & Teller on 'Fool US'. Wordsmyth is mentalism with fascinating props and an intriguing plot.
In an amazing coincidence, a spectator randomly selects a word from a dictionary as participants take randomly selected Scrabble tiles from a net bag. These tiles are formed into any word...that perfectly matches the prediction.
Like all of Francis's work, this is everything we love about great magic. He has spent years refining the presentation and method, he has chosen an offbeat premise, and he has whittled it down to the potent essentials. It is, truly, a worker.
What do you get, you ask? Everything. You get the forcing bag, the necessary Scrabble tiles, the custom made tray for the tiles (which has the slickest switching device you can imagine built into it), the fake-tip pencil, and the perfect storage case to keep the props together. You also get a DVD detailing every aspect of the trick and presentation. The only thing you need to supply is a soft-back book or dictionary.
Is it hard to do? Not at all. This is one that you can insert into your parlor show to add something truly unique and different.
What if I'm performing in another language? Bueno! Bien! Gut! We have decals available upon request so you can force words in German, Spanish, and French. You can choose these when you add the product to your cart.
"If you like to stupefy, mystify, and flabbergast your audiences, then you will definitely want this lexical trick which will amuse, delight, charm, and entertain the most discriminating crowds (not to mention deceive, fool, and hoodwink them)." John Lovick
