The performer lays out seven cards on the table, each one representing one of the Seven Deadly Sins.
After explaining that the Devil uses these sins in order to tempt his victims, the performer chooses a vice that would personally be tempting. Instructing the spectator to do the same, they then have a completely free choice of the remaining six sins.
Before committing, the performer tells the spectator that they can change their mind as many times as they want. Still, no matter how much one tries to trick him, The Devil ALWAYS Knows… The back of their selected card is eerily different from all the others in a Devilish manner – scary!!
Inspired by Nick Trost’s classic Eight Card Brainwave and giving it a bizarre Seven Deadly Sins twist, these cards are beautifully printed on 310gsm cardstock from France, with a linen finish that is extremely durable and should last for many, many years.
The art was designed by a professional artist, and needs to be seen in person to really be appreciated. Just laying the cards down on the table immediately grabs the spectator’s interest, offering unlimited storytelling opportunities for a virtually captive audience.
From fun and humorous presentations to downright terrifying ones, THE DEVIL ALWAYS KNOWS is an instant reset worker’s dream that makes for an absolutely unforgettable piece of magic.
