Cheat Guide

The candles:

  • Two candles appear on the screen. The trick begins when two flames come out.
  • At first you will tell the participant to blow onto the screen, and you will make both candles go out by pressing L secretly.
  • You can then have the participant pick one of the candles and tell him/ her to blow. If the left candle was chosen, press the Down button.
  • If the right candle was chosen, press Cross button. Press Start to return to the menu.

The day you were born:

  • Ask the participant to enter his/her name in the PSP (without you letting go of the PSP at any time), a phrase with his/her name will appear scrolling across the screen.
  • At that time you must enter the day on which he/she was born. Let's say on the 24th, L+10 to the day, R+1. So to get 24 you will press L two times and R four more times.
  • While he/she thinks, press L and R to define the month in which he/she was born, L-1 and R+1. So for April, press R four times (for December, simply press L once). Then let the PSP do the rest.


  • Adapted from a Math trick with the same name. In this trick the PSP gives you, the magician, a space to say the number that the viewer has obtained.
  • Then add the first two figures that the viewer is asked to add.
