Word Power trick - Sam Schwartz
-Stewart James, after he saw the brilliant idea behind the many word tests that Sam Schwartz had created
EFFECT: The performer shows a group of almost fifty word cards, one word to a card. The participant is handed all the cards and is asked to think of any one word. The performer proceeds to reveal the word without any hesitation, beginning with individual letters and then revealing the entire word!
This can be done with your back turned, in a different room, over the phone, etc. and is suitable for both smaller and larger audiences. In addition to the clever method, Sam has refined the revelation procedure to look like you knew the word right from the beginning!
