Equivoque magic – often referred to as the Magician’s Choice – is the way in which a magician grants the audience the illusion of freedom of choice. An example: the magician asks an audience member to pick a card, but doesn’t indicate whether this card is to be removed, flipped over, etc. until after the choice is made. In other words, the audience member’s participation was meaningless, just a way to make him feel he was in control. In this and in many other ways, Equivoque becomes one of the most powerful tools a magician possesses.

“This may seem simple, but pair this concept with a large deck of cards or an audience choosing or picking, and you have yourself magic deception at its finest. The same card the magician intends to be ‘the one’ is the going to be ‘the one’ whether you pick ‘the one’ or not.”
