Child's Play consists of a double prediction called 'Piece of Cake' and a tool called 'High Five', both for your online and offline performances.
PIECE OF CAKE
An envelope containing a prediction is introduced. 7 cards bearing 7 different numbers are introduced as well.
You tell them behind each of those cards there is something written but that’s for later use. Next the cards are placed in two different rows of 4 & 3 cards in each. A participant eliminates one of the rows and you turn over the cards to show the text behind, you had predicted which row they would eliminate. Next they pair one of the cards from the remaining row with any other card of the same. The numbers get added up and it matches the prediction inside the envelope.
A method to force a number on a participant, one-on-one over video call or in the real world. It involves basic multiplication or addition or both that can be easily done mentally by the participant. Included in here are 5 different ideas and applications for using this.
If you don’t have double blank cards, you can use blank business cards or paper that doesn't bleed.
The choices are free but the choices are limited and that's what you capitalize on in Child's Play.
