Solve the puzzle
it will necessary for two of the players to know how to play this brain teaser game. Arrange nine books or magazines on the floor in columns and rows of three. Send the â€œmagician/mind readerâ€? out of the room. As a group, choose one of the books or squares. When the book is chosen, the magician is called in. Ask everyone in the room to concentrate on the chosen book. Begin by pointing at different squares repeatedly saying "Is it this the one?â€? The magician will tell him to stop when he is pointing at the correct square.The trick is simple. The first time the accomplice points to a square, he points to the relevant part of the square to indicate where the correct item is in the grid of 9 items. So if he points to the top right of the first square, the correct item in the item is in the top right of the grid. For instance, the picture below shows us that the book is the one in the top right corner. Keep pointing to a couple of books before pointing to the book that is â€œitâ€?. You can vary this a bit so the accomplice shows the magician on his second or third point if you want to. As people catch on they can become magicians and see if they get it right.
