The performer displays a large board, with a transparent pocket on one side, holding a giant card. On the reverse of the board are 4 small transparent pockets, numbered 1-2-3-4, with 4 smaller (Jumbo size) cards in them. All the cards have their backs facing the audience.
The four smaller cards are removed, and their faces shown to the audience. They display four of the “Wonders of the World” – The Eiffel Tower of Paris, The Pyramids of Egypt, The Great Wall of China, and the Taj Mahal of India. Having displayed the cards freely, they are turned face down, and thoroughly mixed, so no one knows which card is which … not even the performer.
The four cards are now placed back out in the four numbered transparent pockets. The performer turns the board over, drawing attention to the giant card on reverse, stating it is a prediction of one of the four cards that will be selected. With the four cards now facing the audience, a spectator (selected in a random and fair manner) is asked to select one of the four numbers.
They may change their mind if they wish, and when they have finally decided on a number, the card in that numbered pocket is removed, and turned to show the picture on reverse. We will presume it shows the Taj Mahal. The board is turned around, and the giant card removed and the face displayed to show it is a perfect match – it too shows the Taj Mahal.
Large props that could be used from a stage or platform. The board is 12″ x 10″ and laminated.
