Here is a new close-up psychic trick, using a new method, not used before to create this type of effect. You do this using a short tube cut from a regular opaque straw. It is ungimmicked. Also three ordinary wooden matches are colored to give you three different colored match sticks, red, blue and green. The matches sticks are all the same length.
One of the three different colored matches is placed into the straw tube behind the performer's back. The performer caps his thumb and first finger over each end of the straw tube and holds the same to his forehead.
He instantly names the color of the match stick within the straw tube. The effect can instantly be repeated with a different match! Nothing looks like a magic prop, just ordinary everyday items, which is the way it was designed.
- straw is opaque and color can't be seen through it
- no sleights
- no magnets or weights in the matches
- no secret peeks of any kind
- one-man effect
Can be done surrounded under any conditions. Do this with any three wooden matches and an ungimmicked straw. A mystifying close-up psychic effect that will puzzle many magicians. Don't let the low price fool you, the secret is ingenious.
BONUS: Includes a GAG BIT for smokers using the props.
This match trick has fooled every magician I have showed it to. This is a great trick to pass the wife test. Magicians complain that they can't fool their wives. This trick will fool your wife! In fact, take it to your next magic club meeting, and I doubt any magician can figure out how you did it, unless he bought my PDF.

An Astounding mentalism effect on a small personal scale. They will never figure out how the mentalist knew what color they picked. A classy pocket trick. Don't let the inexpensive props cause you to think that this is anything but very clever amazement. Devin has put together a good trick at a bargain basement price.
