Imagine revealing two FREELY thought-of words from across the room using an ungimmicked dictionary. Imagine doing this 15 feet away and never touching the dictionary during the presentation. Devin Knight's Word Sight allows you to reveal two words, sight unseen, that are freely chosen from word lists containing hundreds of words. There are no duplicate words in the lists. No special dictionary or certain edition is required. The four page restickable word lists can be placed inside the covers of any dictionary, even a borrowed one.
Each of two spectators thinks of a word on the lists, looks up the meaning, and concentrates on the word. You pick up a notepad and without saying anything, you write two words, tear-off the paper and place it writing down on the table. You never touch the paper again. The participants reveal the words they are thinking of, one of them picks up the paper, and there written in bold letters are the same two words.
This can also be done using only one participant who thinks of two words and you reveal them both without asking any questions.
There are no forces, limitations, dual reality, or pre-show work of any kind. The spectators have free choices of hundreds of words! There are NO VERBAL clues; you use only your eyes. The participants NEVER write anything. The spectators tell you nothing!
Nothing is used but the dictionary with the word lists pasted to the inside covers and a notepad for writing the two thought-of words. The thought-of words can be revealed even if the borrowed dictionary is a cheap one that does not have the words in it. Read that again; even if the words are NOT IN THE DICTIONARY for the person to look up, you can still correctly reveal the words
- No secret writing of any kind
- No anagrams
- No fishing of any kind
- No Gimmicks
