Forgive me, but if this uses the same principle as the hoary effect in which a participant must find his selected number as it appears on one or several preprinted cards, which the performer then divines -- an effect that has appeared on cereal boxes -- then bombastic claims such as "THIS IS PROBABLY THE MOST POWERFUL, DIRECT MIND READING EFFECT THAT HAS EVER BEEN CREATED!!" begin to appear truly ridiculous.
Giving that old effect an emotional hook is a fine goal (as Luke Jermay did in his adaptation of Maven's Mind's Eye Deck in his booklet, Seven Deceptions). But let's include some sanity in our advertising copy, please.
