A card is freely chosen and then shuffled back into the deck. You bring a glass marble from your pocket and place it on the table, explaining "This marble is going to find your card."
Now you divide the deck into several piles. "Watch," you say as you wave your hands over the marble. Suddenly it begins to move, slowly and eerily rolling behind the piles of cards. Then it comes to a stop.
"The marble has chosen this pile, so one of these cards must be yours. Now let's see if it can find the exact card." You spread the pile of cards face down on the table and again wave your hands over the marble. In a spooky manner it rolls along and then suddenly stops.
"It stopped right here behind this card. If this were your card, wouldn't that be amazing?" Of course everyone agrees. And sure enough when you turn the card over, it is indeed the chosen card!
You will also learn a routine inspired by Gregory Wilson where the marble rolls ON TOP OF THE CARDS and stops on the chosen card!
NOTE: Your audience should watch Marble from front and side angles only, not rear or extreme side angles. Certain types of tables and countertops will not work with Marble. Everything is fully explained in the instructions.
