Ploy is a way to indirectly obtain a piece of information your spectator is only thinking of. Amazingly, they never have to say it out loud or write anything down!
You perform a thought-of-card effect where a card is taken out of a deck of NORMAL playing cards, you either guess it exactly or get very close. You are THEN able to automatically and effortlessly divine other information your spectator is merely thinking of, such as, which color they are focusing on or their star sign, etc.
NO, this is not the usual ploy of writing on the faces of the playing cards to force a thought. Instead, it is actually a way to get information secretly without anyone ever being aware this is the case.
A deck of standard playing cards and your words are all you need to guess star signs, thought of colors, memories... or an item from any other category you'd like to use.
You perform a quick thought-of-card as a way of tuning into the thoughts of your spectator, and this gives you everything!
It really is that simple and easy to perform. A powerful technique with amazing results!
