Silent Running

Ben Harris - With thanks to Peter Duffie

Silent Running is a development of the Crossroads concept (also available) with the need for using ‘equivoque’ removed. It is a "Think Of A Card" concept that requires no props at all. You don't even need a deck of cards. 

A spectator is asked to merely THINK of a number from 1-10 and to NOT TELL YOU. Once she has done this, she is asked to think of a suit and again to NOT TELL YOU. Then, ENTIRELY IN HER MIND she adds the suit to the number to create a visual image of a playing card. Again, SHE SAYS NOTHING! Once she has confirmed that she is thinking of a card that NO ONE CAN KNOW, you then proceed to reveal the card in any number of ways. 

"Silent Running describes a very clever principle that enables the performer to almost instantly ascertain the identity of a card merely thought of. The Card Stabbing routine made possible by the principle is the most powerful I have ever seen. I highly recommend Silent Running to serious students of the art as well as to professional workers." - Bob Cassidy (USA) 

Three Routines are included along with additional material by Bob Cassidy, Paolo Cavalli, Devin Knight, Jason Messina and Steve Shufton.
