You know that game CLUEDO?
My granddad invented that.
Well actually, he said it was stolen from him.
He had an idea for a game and took his idea to a few companies, but none were interested. Except one. And they said,
“We’d love to take your idea, but unfortunately we are already working on something almost identical ourselves.”
Now whether that was true or not we’ll never know, but less than a year later, CLUEDO appeared on the market.
I never saw the actual board that my granddad made, but my mother found a box, with some of the cards he designed.
Here, take a look…….
What is it?
Everyone knows Cluedo (or Clue for those in the U.S.)
I have been busy developing an effect along the same lines as the great game.
The cards contain custom images,
9 different suspects 9 different rooms 9 different weapons
The participants will choose a suspect, a room and a weapon and place these in an envelope, just as in the real game.
The performer can now;
Use his psychic powers to detect the details of the murder.
Demonstrate his ‘subconscious memory’ technique to determine which cards have been chosen.
Or show off his skills at ‘deductive questioning’ before revealing the details of the murder
He could even relate a murder story, complete with newspaper clipping, and at the end of it, reveal that somehow the participants chose the exact cards that featured in the story.
The cards make it possible for the performer to know which suspect, which room and which weapon have been chosen.
No moves, no electronics, nothing but the cards and envelope
