NOTE: Do not confuse this with the original Blindsight. This 100% new method will fool those who have the original trick.

The performer shows four manila envelopes. There is nothing written on the envelopes, nor are they secretly marked. He shows them freely on both sides and points out the envelopes are opaque. The performer hands the envelopes to a participant; saying inside each envelope is a different colored card: Green, red, blue, and yellow. The performer has the participant mix the four envelopes. This is so neither the performer nor the participant will have any clue to which color card is inside of any envelope.

The performer then asks the participant to hand him the envelope that he thinks contains the green card. The performer writes green on the front of that envelope with a black marker. This is done in full view, so the participant can see the word being written. This is repeated with the colors red and blue, with the performer writing those colors on the envelopes while the participant watches and sees the words being written. Nothing is hidden. One envelope is left in the participant's hand.

The performer asks jokingly, "Which envelope do you think contains the yellow card? (The participant says his remaining envelope.) This may not seem to be much of a choice; but it is a choice, as you kept that envelope for the last one. There is no way anyone could have known which envelope you would have left for last. I do not wish to touch that envelope, please continue to hold it for now."

The performer places the three envelopes with the colors written on them in a row on the table. Showing his hands to be empty, he picks up the envelope marked green and opens it removing the colored card inside. It is indeed green! The green card is shown on both sides and dropped on the table. The mouth of the envelope is squeezed open showing the inside. The spectators can see it is empty. This is repeated with the other two envelopes. Again, in both cases, the participant has correctly guessed the colored card inside. Three guesses and all of them correct! A perfect hit!

The kicker ending is yet to come. The performer recaps that he has not touched the envelope remaining in the participant's hand and that no one could have known which envelope he would leave for last.

"Obviously, the yellow card must be in that envelope. Please remove it. There is also a slip of paper inside the envelope. Remember, the other envelopes contained nothing but the colored cards; however, the envelope you are holding is an exception. Please remove the slip of paper and read aloud what is written on it."

Written on the slip is, "I knew this envelope would be your last choice."

At this point, the participant can examine all four envelopes and the colored cards. There is nothing to find. The ending is the same every time. There are no multiple endings.

BAFFLING BEYOND WORDS....LOOKS LIKE A REAL PSYCHIC FEAT...WILL LEAVE YOUR SPECTATORS DUMBFOUNDED!
