Blind Date by David Devlin

Effect: The performer introduces a deck of cards that has swimsuit models on the cards. It is explained to a male spectator that he is going to go on a date with one of these 52 girls. All he has to do is psychically determine her phone number.

You bring out 5 cards, which are numbered 1 through 10. All of the odd numbers are on one side of the cards, and all of the even numbers are on the other side of the cards. In other words, the card marked with a 1 on one side is marked with a 2 on the other side. The others are, of course, 3/4, 5/6, 7/8, and 9/10. You tell the spectator that you will give him a little help in determining his mystery date's number. The spectator lays out the number cards in a totally random and freely chosen order. He then deals down into the deck according to the number that he has created. The card that comes at the end of the deal is turned face up. It is the 6 of Spades with a picture of Lisa on it.

A prediction that has been sitting on the table is opened. It reads, "Your mystery date's name is Lisa. She is 27 years old, and she lives at #6 Spade Drive." Of course, the card is correct, but what about the "27 years old"? The pile of dealt cards is counted. There are exactly 27 cards!

This is a fun effect to perform for couples. It employs a technique that is very little known.

[Note: You will need a deck of cards that not only has 52 different swimsuit models on the cards, but one that also has the girl's name on the card. The decks that can be bought at Hooter's Restaurants are ideal as they fit all of the requirements.]
