Psy-Colony – A Revolutionary Prediction by Gary Brown
Effect: Performer produces six colonial banknotes from an envelope, setting them out on a table. The spectator selects several, and eventually settles on one. The note selected by the spectator matches a duplicate note contained in the envelope, which has remained in the possession of the spectator, untouched by performer, during the entire effect. Psy-Colony is an astonishing, self-working prediction which uses no gimmicks or sleights. The spectator handles everything used in the effect, and the items bear the closest scrutiny.
Psy-Colony uses authentic reproduction of colonial currency issued in Massachusetts, Vermont, South Carolina, Georgia, New York and Pennsylvania. The beautiful banknotes, produced by a firm that manufactures colonial currency for historical films and television series, have been specially printed on a Heidelberg press on cotton rag stock, providing the look, feel and durability of real antique currency.
Psy-Colony is a self-working prediction effect using authentic-looking money from the Colonial era. The spectator handles the props, the possibilities for interesting patter are endless, and Gary has introduced what I call the Center Placement Stratagem which has many other applications. It’s not just another card trick, and you can carry it in your wallet! – Matthew Field, Fmr. Editor, The Magic Circular
