It`s logic and dependent on the numbers.

Take a look at it, it is possible to land on the "House (Left "O") using this logic.

The only mistake was that he ended it one count too late, or he took the wrong picture off.

He had the right idea, just one mistake.

To tell you the truth, he did make one mistake that I`ve seen.

I followed the rules, as we all started on the top right corner "Start", and I`ll use Janis` picture to show us where he made a mistake.

Quote:"
X|O|X
-----
O|X|O
-----
X|O|X

(Filler I removed, ran out of characters)

If start on an `O`
Even - Stay on `O`
Odd - Go to `X`

If start on an `X`
Even - Stay on `X`
Odd - Go to `O`"

Our first move was off the "Start" (Top right corner "X"), thus putting us on "Zero (O)" or "Blank Face(O)," in which he removed "Start(X)"

If I`m not mistaken, the first count was to 7, so let`s work this out.
1 - Start on O, end on X
2 - Start on X, end on X
3 - Start on X, end on O
4 - Start on O, end on O
5 - Start on O, end on X
6 - Start on X, end on X
7 - Start on X, end on O

Pfffff I watched his other two videos both use camera tricks, In one he even admits it. I know this is going to sound gay but after reading Derren Brown`s book on things like this, It really effects the way you look at things. On his website he asks you to see whether a guy is lying or not, and it`s genuinely is easy, the video where the guy says I, and reefers to himself alot is the one where he tells the truth. This is because he has a personal relationship with the film, Which makes it much more likely to be his favourite

No, janus is right. I didn`t watch the video till the end, but the guy was doing exactly what Janus described, and unless he messed up at the end, there is no way to "get around" it, whether you revisit squares or not.

RedNine, it`s just dandy that you got a 100% in algebra or whatever math you do in school. If you could also learn to think before you speak, and stop sounding so confident when you don`t know what you`re talking about, you`d probably be set for life.

Ahhh, RedNine is right, the people who said he was wrong aren`t stupid. I tried this quite a few times (it`s a combination of sadness and procrastination)and most times he took away tiles I wasn`t on, but one time he took away one that I was on. I kept travelling back and forth between two tiles by the way.

That`s an entirely different trick.

The one flaw in this is that he allowed you to revisit squares you`ve visited before. So I could just alternate between two squares over and over again. THEN he will eventually take away the square I was on.

It`s not entirely flawless. And just because some of you tell everyone that they can`t count when they say he got it wrong, doesn`t mean you`re right. In fact those telling others they can`t count haven`t even told us if the guy got it right or wrong.

Tell me I`m wrong in math, and then I`ll show you my 100% average in Mathematics.

I don`t understand why people are all like: THIS IS MATH, OMGWTFOWNZORZ!!! It`s not math.

It`s not even clever.

For those who couldn`t even find the manual dexterity to even get it right, you need to go back and learn to count.

For the rest of you, here`s how it works.

Take a tic tac toe board. Set it up like this

X|O|X
-----
O|X|O
-----
X|O|X

Start on any `X` (because I like `X`, it works just as well the other way around.

Now, since you`re on an `X`, if I say move one square horizontally or vertically, no matter what you do, you`re on an `O`.

Likewise, if you`re on an `O` and I say move one square horizontally or vertically, no matter what you do, you`re on an `X`.

So all I have to do is remember what you started on and how many moves you make.

If start on an `O`
Even - Stay on `O`
Odd - Go to `X`

If start on an `X`
Even - Stay on `X`
Odd - Go to `O`

I remove a tile of whatever type (X or O) you`re NOT on.

And that`s the trick

Not very impressive, this "trick". (He removes squares that you can`t reach in an odd number of moves. That`s why you can`t move diagonally.)

Excuse me, whatinthe42o (and several others), but I`m not in the 13-17 group for one thing, and I didn`t try to throw the guy off. I didn`t come into it thinking I would "beat" him, I honestly thought he would get it. If I made a mistake, I made a mistake, but I don`t recall it. I didn`t go "AHAHAHAHAHAH I got him!!!1", okay? So calm the hell down.

If he got it `wrong`: YOU CANNOT COUNT. You fail at life. Go back to gradeschool. It is a math trick, it is not subliminal, it is not psychic. IT IS A MATH TRICK. There is no gray area, either he got it right where you were pointing or you cannot follow directions. Simple as that.

The image on 1:21 isn`t a subliminal message. Youtube selects a screencap during the middle of the video to use as the preview picture for the video when someone clicks on it. If one wants to get more views, a smart Youtuber would insert the best screenshot in the middle of the video so that Youtube would choose it to be the default picture. Better preview image, the more it attracts viewers.

And, seriously, everyone who thinks that he made a mistake has just been added to the universal list of people whom you should *never* *never* *NEVER* take seriously. He can`t get it wrong, but clearly some people (I`m looking at *you*, punkin, stuckinmud, sinfulsisi, kidatheart, and any of the others on other pages) are so mind bogglingly stupid that they can`t count and move their finger at the same time, or went diagonally, thinking, "rolf imma pwn this nub!!111" The 13-17 crowd is making me fear for the future of our species.

All your responses make me weep for the future of the human race.

1) If he "got it wrong" and he pulled off a square you were on: YOU FAIL AT LIFE. Learn to count.

2) If you can`t figure out how he did it: YOU FAIL AT LIFE. Get off the intarwebs and try to stimulate your brain with something other than youtube videos.

One by one he takes away the cards you couldn`t have possibly landed on, no matter which way you went. The fewer cards there are, the more your moves will be limited, all the more so because he decides how many steps you can take. In the end there`s a 1-in-1 chance for you to land on the smiley.

It has nothing to do with subliminal messages. After one move from start you are on either the circle with a line through it or the unhappy face. After another move you are on either V, wavy lines, or happy face (he removes start). The trend continues so after any given move you are either on the corners or center or you are one one of the sides. All he has to do is remove a sticky note you can`t possibly be on and he won`t be wrong. Then he just narrows it down until you are on the smiley face.
