Here's a magic trick we hope you'll like. You can even copy it and try it out on your friends.

Simply follow the step-by-step directions. Even though many of them offer you a choice of what to do, we're feeling confident in our crystal ball's power to foretell the future.  Go ahead, give it a try!

1. Place a mental marker on any one of the numbered spots in the grid below.

2. Move one space to the left or right--your choice.

3. Move one space up or down--your choice.

4. Move one space to the right, if possible; otherwise, move one space left.

5. Move one space down, if possible; otherwise, move one space up.

6. If your spot is in the left column (1, 4, 7), move it one space to the right; if it's in the middle column (2, 5, 8), move it one space to the left; if it's in the right column (3, 6, 9), don't move it.

 

1 2 3
