Color Scheme by Oscar Weigle

A wonderful self-working version of "Out of this world" with several variations.

A spectator forms a pattern of face-up and face-down cards which unaccountably separates the colors. This happens despite the spectator shuffling the cards repeatedly. An astounding color-divination effect, done in the spectator's own hands with unprepared cards. Nothing extra required. Complete with "in depth" notes and several variations in effect and presentation by Weigle himself, Martin Gardner and Clayton Rawson.

  • Quick. A packet of about twenty cards is used.
  • The spectator can freely cut a bunch of cards and use them for the trick.
  • Magic happens in spectator's hands.
  • You can use a borrowed deck.
  • Included is a no prior set-up version.

Oscar Weigle and I share last names but are no close relatives. I was introduced to Oscar through the writing of John Scarne who published his (with another) "Spectator Cuts to the Four Aces." As always, Lybrary makes the gathering of hard-to-find manuscripts and booklets very simple and inexpensive. I love to collect effects that I may present as an illustration of my helper's intuition. Color Scheme is perfect for this.
