X3 ~ Hoy Book Test Revisited

David Hoy (who performed as Dr. Faust) was a wonderful man who started out wanting to be an evangelist but turned to the world of magic and mentalism instead. Hoy believed that the best effects could be achieved by the most simple and direct methods, and we agree with him. In fact, many of today's top mentalists have been greatly influenced by Hoy's bold approach to the art; his contributions are legend.

So, we wanted to pay homage to the late David Hoy by revisiting his work—enter our newest creation for the magic community, X3. Similar to two of his time-honored creations, X3's genius lays in its simplicity too; it is so simple that you'll have a blast coming up with wonderful ways to use it in your act; it is that powerful.

Effect

Three books (Volumes I, II, and II) written by Sir Charles Eliot about Hinduism and Buddhism—certainly a topic no mentalist or magician would have difficulty building up into a wonderful effect—are sitting on a table.

Two people are asked to participate. The first is asked to choose one of the books and hold on to it; they are welcome to look through it if they like. Then, a second spectator is asked to choose from the remaining books and to randomly open up to any page in the book she likes. Once she is there, she announce the page number and you instruct the first person to begin reading the text of their book found on the page chosen and announced just moments ago by the second person.

After a suitable build up, the contents of the book are revealed...

X3 takes Hoy's ideas to the next level!

No stooges are needed, you don't have to announce the page number, there are no forces of ANYTHING, you don't have to memorize any words, anagrams, or codes. It really is a very easy to perform even if you have no experience.

Pages 127 for each Vol. - Softbound

Comes complete with the 3 Volume Boot Test set and 16 page instruction booklet.
