Hey guys. I'm currently working in China. I was walking the streets the other day and I saw a magician on the side of the road. He claimed that he can figure out a birthday without asking us any questions. He had a big mat in front of him with all the days of the year, organized by months (written in squares). He gave us a card and told us that when we find our birthdates to put the card on the square with the month of our birthday. And just by doing so he was able to figure out our birthdays. Very clean, very direct. I've never seen anything like this before. How about you guys?

It has all the appearance of the age-old Age Cards. There are versions and variations all over the place.

My earliest recollection of it is finding it in a magic set alongside umpteen other classics when I was about three. I liked it then and I like it now. It needs camouflage, but what doesn't.

I love birthday divinations! I have used a few different methods, but my favorite has been Isabella's Stars by Peter Turner. That being said, Cipher is a phone app that does all the work for you.

I have a few birthday related effects, and they are;

The Birthday Book - John Morgan LINT book
Chronologue  - Bob Cassidy
Zodiac - Christian Chelman Capercornian Tales

The first two routines are diary effects and the last one deals with getting either the birthday on the spot, or getting real close to the birthday, in the context of a reading with playing cards.

Best,
