The Ultimate Book Test
The spectator calls out a RANDOM page number in a normal, ungimmicked book. Out of thousands of possibilities – they think of ONE word on that page.
You write down a prediction before they even know what word it is. Remarkably – impossibly – your prediction is 100% correct.
But that’s not all – not only did you write down the WORD, but you also predicted the exact dictionary position of that word: Page 248. Column 2. Word 7. And yes – the spectator can examine the books and the dictionary.
5 years in the making.
In January 2012, we received a video from Lee Petrucci with a book test unlike anything we’d seen before. It worked with ANY book – and the spectator could freely name any page number, line number, and word number.
Later that year, we stumbled on a similar concept by Steven Skindell – with some brilliant, high-tech features that made it even BETTER.
Over the five YEARS that followed, we worked with Steven and Lee to create a single product that’s the best of both worlds. The absolute ULTIMATE book test: Zodiac.
