(In reply to re: the magician A coaches partner B
I INTEND TO DO IT:
One of the "neutral" participants in my party will phone my remote associate and read out my name and names of other 4 people in a random order and then 5 numbers (one of them added by me to the distinct 4 selected by them) in any order.
My associate arranges the 4 names in alphabetical order thus creating the CDEF baseline. Then he identifies my number,consults the table- and calls back: Ady selected 17, Betty 11, Rick 44 etc Then my associate "explains" that there are 120 ways to order those 5 numbers and it is virtually impossible to define one of the 120 permutations by adding a single number out of 96 available choices.
Ergo- some ESP is needed (Hi,Uri Geller)....
We call it a "neat trick" !!
