("Print and Perform" is a new magic series that will enable you to easily build yourself beautiful tricks just printing them.)
You, the memory-man, demonstrate to really have a super memory. You show to the audience a sheet of paper containing a list of 50 six-digit numbers. You declare that you have committed to memory the full list. The six digit numbers are identified by ciphers from 1 to 50. The identifying ciphers are scrambled to make it more difficult memorizing the associated six digit number. Three or more spectators, in turn, choose and announce one identifying figure from 1 to 50 and you instantly write on a big note block or on a blackboard the six digit number near it! There is no doubt that you have a prodigious memory!
Points to ponder
- Can be done close-up or stage.
- Can be repeated as many times as you want.
- No Force
- No memory work
- Easy to do
- Knowing the trick you can produce a bigger list of, for example, 99 numbers.
- You can just print and perform it in minutes…

I have rated this with five stars because it is a very good effect. However, if you own Ted Annemann's book "Practical Mental Effects" you can pass this by as it is in that book (which can also be purchased here). It can be found in the chapter Mentalism with Cards under the title "Mental Numbers" by Vincent Dalban. I have used this effect as a unique way for passing out business cards as suggested in "Practical Mental Magic" but had not thought of using it as a parlor or stage item (a nice idea).
