Joolin, you should try reading his biography.

The stuff he does isn`t just for money and fame. If he wanted that, he says he`d become a stage performer...it`s more of the anthropomorphics for him I guess.

chess is ok if you are the most boring person in the world.i did this with airsoft once, it was a 3 man match and it was everyman for themself. i simply led them into eachother and because the bbs are soooo slow they managed to get eachother out. but yeah that was brilliant some hella memory there

Probably slight of hand when he opened up the envelope and unfolded that bit of paper.

I had it figured out about 2 minutes in; just have them play each other. Of course, remembering all that would be quite difficult. The number at the end is most likely no different from a normal "have someone pick a word and it shows up in their pocket" magic trick.

After hours of playing Elder scrolls 4 I cant help but think joining an orgnaization or society in the real world will result in numerous quest lines and sub plots.

"take the crumpet out of your ass."

You`re the only one here who appears to have to have anything up your ass. I`m guessing you like it that way. Carry on.

-how did i guess a yank posted this? Easy. despite having a far superior tv broacasting nation, the fact it doesnt have channel 4 where trick of the mind (the tv show this was taken from btw) airs, means they are 4-5 years behind us Brits on awesomeness tv about mundanely pointless. albeit interesting, subjects.-

this sh*t is old like 65% of the stuff on IAB. just because it just showed up on some semi-popular u.s. website, doesn`t mean america just discovered derren brown.

take the crumpet out of your ass.

Wow. Usually I think Derren Brown is a complete fraud, but this one actually seemed fairly legit. That said, I still think he`s a jackass who has an entire TV show just to stroke his ego though.

It was obvious what he was doing from the point where it showed the ring of tables and yet I watched it all the way through because I was curious about the envelope and the numbers, and he didn`t tell us how. ;_;

Btw, If you notice the numbers one off from one another, except for the real game. Why ?
Because masters know that once they are a full piece down, they`ll usually quit.

so naturally, table 1 - 11 pieces, table 5 - 10 pieces.

Now that is pretty cheeky.

Still a challenge to keep all those moves in his head and correct for 4 pairs of players + the real game.

I have used that method to beat internet kids at 4-rows, chess, checkers and sometimes tic-tac-toe since I was 10. Of course I didnt need to memorize anything, but meh

Damn, that is pretty clever. I knew there was a reason why he had them all in a circle not just to make it easier for him to travel around.

I`m surprised none of them followed a different move from the scheme of things.
