Re: Best Think of a Card Plot

Has anyone heard of the other deck put out by Magic realm productions called cerebral manipulation?
A two card effect, one card is a mental selection of any card
no limitations. The other is physically selected.
Mentalist draws a number and pip on card case and the both are correct.

Re: Magic for Deaf People ?

Although an old thread, you could incorporate the silent treatment by John Allen in a routine. Just modify it by having a card forced from a normal deck.

Re: Favourite Pass/card control

I will admit that I can do a convincing pass;however, the CUT PASS I learned from the Kaufmann DVD has worked very well for me. I simply say, "Most magicians could simply cut right to your card.....I didn't say I could..I said most..." then I proceed on accordingly like "most magician...

Re: The Koran Deck

For those who like this idea, you might find the review from Peter duffie interesting: I intended to post this on one of two Dream Deck threads that I had read a few weeks ago. But one of the threads is now locked, and the other thread appears to now be an invisible thread. So, this is not intended ...

And you can do a card rise with a small packet of cards, no strings, no magnets, nothing to find either.

Re: Now Let's Try: Best GAFFED Packet Tricks

My favorite is Dan Harlan's "Hold it Buster" for a stand up show and Bannon's "Call of the Wild" for table hopping. My last show, I got 4 rounds of applause while performing the Harlan effect. COW IMHO is the perfect hopping effect since it has a great story line and reset is aut...

Re: Kids show mentalism

How about dejazoo? The puppet could draw the animals.
The 1st time I performed it for kids, it did not go over well. The next time, I had the kids make animal noises which made it alot more fun for them and me :)

Re: What is your favorite mentalism effect?

Osterlind take using a steno index pad is something to consider.
Besides not looking like a prop, you reveal the weakest prediction first.
My favorite effect at this point at time is Larry becker's casino royale.
