Magic’s #1 prop is now made in a stage-sized JUMBO version so the effect can be appreciated by larger audiences. If you work larger groups, banquet tables or even stage venues, you can now perform Double Cross because the X can be seen by spectators in the back row! Everything about the trick works the same, its just BIGGER. The X is more than twice the size of the X in the regular Double Cross, and its much thicker.
The plot is the same as the regular sized prop – ask a spectator to hold out their hand and make a closed fist. Pull out a marker and draw an ‘X’ on the center of your palm and close it into a fist. Now without any rubbing, erasing or funny business, you slowly open your hand and reveal your X is COMPLETELY GONE. Now ask the spectator to open their hand – THE X IS ON THEIR PALM!
Ask them to try to rub away the X – they can’t! It’s Sharpie ink! Tell them not to worry though – it’s safe and nontoxic and can be washed away easily with soap and water.
The secret behind Jumbo Double Cross is diabolically clever, and perhaps more importantly, practical. Its always inked and ready to go. There is nothing you need to make or prepare beforehand – just throw the pen in your pocket and you can perform it all night long. Jumbo Double Cross can be performed as a stand-alone effect, or it can be the breathtaking climax to your Psychokinetic Touches routine!
Because there’s no difficult sleights, you’ll sail through the routine. You’re so far ahead the spectators will never remember you coming near them or even touching them. The result is a unique magic effect that’s self-contained, has NO reset, and can be performed surrounded. Its a table hopper’s dream.
Jumbo Double Cross includes the jumbo double Sharpie pen, accessories and online instructions.
