3 different versions:
PI (Version 1)
Effect: 3 cards is selected by 3 spectators.The cards are lost in the deck. The magician now finds the 3 selections, each time in a different way. The selection are a 3, Ace and a 4. The magician says this is really strange, this is the same numbers PI is starting with 3,14. The magician says: “I think I remember some of the numbers of Pi.”
The magician ask a spectator to search for an image of Pi with around 100 numbers on there phone.The magician now names some of the numbers of Pi, and find the the right cards/numbers.The spectator can check that all the numbers on the cards are the same number of Pi on there phone – in order. So the magician finds the numbers in order after 3,14. 159265358979323846264 – Then the magician says “I can’t remember anymore numbers, and it doesn’t matter cause the rest of the card is blank, and shows the rest of the cards are blank.”
Pi With A Message (Version 2):
Same as version 1, but with a message in the end.
You can write letters on the blank cards, so you can end up with a message. A company name you work for, Happy birthday, or reveal a chosen card from another deck. Use a camera and a big screen for your next company event you perform for, and have the company name written on the last cards.
Extended version: The magician says that all the blank cards have marks, and say 26 more numbers. This requires you in fact can memorize 47 numbers in total. I have photographic memory to some degree and have memorized 400 numbers of Pi. I don’t use memory maps for this, and therefore I can’t explain how I do it, cause I don’t know.
But I will recommend you to check out Sarah Trustman release – mNumbers – A slice of Pi.
A guide to learn to memorize up to 500 numbers of Pi.
Pi – No Limitations: (Version 3):
The numbers will be in order, so you can reveal the numbers in any way you like.
There are also 2 methods, were you don’t have to memorize anything.
Skill: easy / intermediate / hard
