A spectator is given a new deck of cards and some clothes pegs. Tearing off the cellophane they open the deck and begin to peg cards onto a washing line. When they run out of pegs, they shuffle the deck and pick one card at random. This card helps them randomly choose one of the pegged cards.
Imagine there are 9 cards pegged to the line and they choose the 4 of diamonds - they would then count along the pegged cards stopping at the fourth card. This card is turned around and re-pegged so that the audience can see what it is.
A prediction is opened revealing the name of selected card.
Also included are:
- Prediction can be in spectators hand before effect
- Deck in spectator hands at all times - you do not touch the cards at any time
- Can be repeated with different outcome
- No sleight of hand
- No stooges of any kind
- Extremely visual suits big or small audiences
Over a beer or coffee
Next time you are in a bar or coffee shop you will be able to have a spectator pick any object that is currently on the table in front of them and then show them you have brought with you a prediction of exactly what item they would pick! What is amazing is that when you wrote the prediction you could have had no idea exactly what items would even be on the table when the spec came to pick one!

Dream place in the sun
Nine sealed envelopes each containing a location somewhere on the planet. A spectator randomly chooses one - you don't know which, envelopes shown to contain different locations, etc. etc. - and you tell the audience that you have already dreamed about which location would be chosen. You recount the dream and are of course spot on!
