Westside Wizards

Tuesday, January 8th

7 PM

Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have the power to make your spectator always select the card you want them to? Well, if you were a Jedi, then it would be easy. But until you graduate my little padawan, you will need to learn how to trick your spectator into thinking they made a choice to select a given card. “Forcing” isn’t limited to playing cards but can also be applied to coins, dice, photos, etc. There are so many techniques that can be used and, often, psychology and misdirection are employed. Many forces may take years to master but some are very simple and can be learned relatively quickly.
At our January 8th meeting, we’ll discuss various techniques used on forces and, undoubtedly, we’ll have many demonstrations as well as resources for learning more forces. Some demos will be relatively straightforward and others will take some practice but will lead to the big payoff. Once your spectator has chosen what you want them to by their “own free will”, the hard work is done and you can have fun with the rest of your routine.
