With a presentational angle that incorporates the volunteers' hopes and dreams for the future, this is a great routine to use with friends and family over the New Year period, but is equally usable at any time.
No sleight of hand is required, and the PDF fully explains and describes everything required for a fun and upbeat presentation. More experienced performers would easily be able to turn this single routine into a full evening of mystery entertainment.
This routine is ideal for a parlor presentation or could be adapted for close-up. The only equipment required is a normal deck of playing cards.
