A stand is presented with three paddles with black
slide on covers. The three paddle are removed from the stand and set down
on the table. The covers are removed one at a time to show the front and
the back of each paddle, two paddles have blue spots on both sides and one
paddle has a red spot on both sides. The performer points to paddle with
the red spots and asks the spectator to carefully follow it. The
performer places the covers back on the paddles and mixes the paddles around and
asks the spectator where the red spot is . . . the spectator is always
wrong. This can go on as long as desired. The performer finally
admits he/she has been cheating and there really never was a red spot in
play. Two of the paddles are shown with blue spots on both sides and one
paddle actually has a never before seen green spot on both sides of the paddle.
The spectator then places the covers back on the paddles and just before
he/she is about to replace the paddles on the stand, the performer comes clean
and lets the spectator know that he/she never had a chance and that the
performer was playing with the spectators mind. The performer removes all
the covers to reveal that there never was a second color . . . all three
paddles only have a blue spot on the front and the back.
The light brown parts of this set are 3D printed using a beautiful filament that has been infused with genuine wood.
