This is a fun little trick from the mind of El Duco (who left us way to early). Interesting Premise!
uring the Viking Age, the Vikings left their messages and characters (runes) engraved in stones. Each rune character had a special meaning.
In this experiment the spectator selects one of five stones with different rune characters. You first show all stones and explain what the characters mean. Then you turn over the stones and mix them. Now the spectator selects one. Absolutely no force. The selected character is marked on a card to remember. Put the stones back into the cloth bag. During the whole routine therer is a small jewel box standing in full view on the table. Now you take the box and open it. Inside is a stone. Ask the spectator to take it out.
IT HAS THE SAME RUNE CHARACTER ENGRAVED ON IT AS THE SELECTED ONE!!!
NOTE! The prediction can be different each time. This is a very strong and unique effect, performed with nicely made quite magical rune stones with engraved gold characters. The meaning of the characters make it possible to theme the presentation to fortune telling or personal character reading.
