Available for delivery May 25th, 2017, everything a Satanic Mechanic needs.


A New Breakthrough In Magic Methodology

“Bob Farmer's Bammo Tarodiction Toolbox is both a great trick and a genuinely new method for secretly arranging cards quickly, accurately, and right in front of the spectators' noses.”
—Matthew Field, Magic Book Author and Editor

“Within magic, no mind approaches Bob Farmer’s. Outside magic, Machiavelli came close. The evidence is presented in ‘The Bammo Tarodiction Toolbox.’”
—Stephen Minch

“… brilliant and stimulating …”
—Nick Pudar,

“About what you'd expect from the guy whom invented that stupid little hand trick.”
—Richard Kaufman

It’s got:

Completely new and flabbergasting effects with Tarot and Bicycle cards.

A mysterious message that Aleister Crowley, occultist and Satanist, wrote in 1947 (and then immediately thereafter slumped over dead), here finally explained.

The appearance of impossible poker hands (odds of success, one in over one trillion, three hundred billion, but you beat those odds).

A method for stacking a deck in Mnemonica or Aronson order or Stebbins order (or any order!) that takes less than two and half minutes to complete (there is no faster method).

A revolutionary new method for marking cards.

Indispensable for card guys and mentalists. Not suitable for gospel magicians. No sleights. All self-working. No thought required. No calculations required. Wide applications to many other areas. Satisfaction guaranteed or I'll apologize.

That's all I'm saying. Let's keep this exclusive.

The magician that bothers to learn ... (Tsunami) ... will have an anywhere-anytime game of Psychic Poker ... that will destroy the laymen.”—Jeff Busby, Magical Arts Journal

At the risk have having the obvious pointed out, is this a DVD, booklet, book etc? I assume it's not a real tool box.

A man's reach must exceed his grasp or what's a metaphor?---Marshall McLuhan

It's a manuscript. No tools. No props. You will require cards: playing cards, tarot cards, ESP cards.

I've had some emails asking if this is just another memorized deck treatise. It is not. The Memdeck stuff is just tangential to the material. I included it because the system allows a super fast deck stacking, but 99.9% of the material has nothing to do with memorized decks or stacks, doesn't require any memorization, calculation or sleight of hand, and is essentially self-working.

Here is a simple effect made possible by the system. You can learn this in about 5 minutes. It takes no memorization, thinking, calculating or sleight of hand and is completely self-working.

You tell the spectator you will teach him how to cheat at cards. All he has to do is follow your actions as you deal. Since he’s a beginner, a full deck won’t be used.

You show two packets of 15 cards each. Each packet is a mixture of court cards and spot cards. With 15 cards, each packet can be arranged in 1,307,674,368,000 ways (that’s over a trillion, three hundred million ways).

The spectator shuffles each packet (and he really shuffles and cuts each packet as much as he wants, there is no requirement that he follow any weird procedure).

The spectator picks a packet. No force. He can change his mind if he wishes.

Now you tell him you want him to follow your actions as you deal and mix cards. He follows your every move. You deal a card to the table, he does also; you assemble the carda and deal again, he does so. This all happens really fast. He clones your every move.

You tell the spectator to deal the first five cards in his packet face up to the table. He does so. He has a marginally interesting poker hand.

He deals off the next five cards (another so-so hand) and the final five (again, not much).

You deal off your first five cards: you have a Straight Flush in order: 5, 6, 7, 8, 9.

You deal off the next five to disclose a Royal Flush in order: 10, J, Q, K, A.

You deal off the last five to show a second Royal Flush in order: 10, J, Q, K, A.

The chances of this happening by chance are 1,307,674,368,000 to 1--so, you must have cheated somehow.

You tell him that though he’s followed your every move exactly, he’s missing the criminal heart that would make him a good card cheat, so he’ll just have to try harder, perhaps he could start by doing some shoplifting.

That sounds like a PHENOMENAL and very entertaining effect, and which gets the spectator involved. It's too bad that the BTT won't be available in stores, as my shoplifting abilities eclipse even my card-cheating prowess...
