Re: tricks to find age using numbers

I do. Firstly, you tell me your age, and I'll find your age.


Boy let me tell you what:
I bet you didn't know it, but I'm a fiddle player too.
And if you'd care to take a dare, I'll make a bet with you.

Re: tricks to find age using numbers

Or "take your age, add one, tell me the number, and I will guess your age" smile

OK, here's one:

Take your age, multiply by 3, add 15, divide by 3, add 91 and tell me the number.
I then subtract 100, and add 4.

Example: 14*3 = 42, +15=57, /3=19, +91=110. Your age is 110-100+4 = 14 !

Re: tricks to find age using numbers

Like the card trick:

"Take a card, any card. Now show me the card ... It is the Queen of Spades!"

And the other variation (all great for parties):

"Take a card, any card, bu don't look at it. Now put it back. (Shuffle ... look ... ) it was the Ace of Clubs!"

Re: tricks to find age using numbers

Yes! Pure and utter genius! I should try that with a special size deck of cards.

But, remember, when using card tricks, use the oldest one first. Get them to pick a card, open the deck and memorise which card it's underneath. Just try not to seperate them when shuffling!

Pick a secret drop-off point in the outer hebrides, and arrange a trusted go-between on a need-to-know basis.
