Exclusive Routines

Exclusive Routines by Bob CassidyThese are three of the best routines Bob Cassidy has ever created:
  • Q and A 2000: A very strong sealed message reading routine employing several methods each one to disguise the other methods used.

  • The Medium's envelope test: This is basically Bob's own "Test of the White Dwarf" combined with George Kaplan's original preparation of the envelopes.

  • A Remote Peek: Bob originally sold this with his limited edition peek wallet which is no longer available. However, it may be performed with any Jaks style peek wallet, or, if you prefer, a slit pay-style manila envelope.

Scorpio's Message

Scorpio's Message by Bob CassidyFor a long time unavailable! A New Approach to Q&A.

Bob has often referred to the Question and Answer Act as a major effect in mentalism. (“Audience reading”, perhaps, is a more accurate description of the act, since many presentations focus on the revelation of information apparently unknown to the performer – the Sunshine-Dunninger-Kreskin approach – rather than the actual answering of questions.) The effect is major since it involves, or potentially involves, everyone in the audience as opposed to minor effects, which involve only one or a few volunteers, and are sometimes referred...

The Messing Effect

The Messing Effect by Bob CassidyWolf Messing (1899 -1974) is often said to have been the most talented mind reader in the world. A native of Poland, Messing moved to Russia just prior to the outbreak of World War II. His decision to emigrate followed a performance, during which he predicted that Germany would be defeated and Hitler would die if Poland were invaded. Hitler, a devout believer in psychic phenomena, showed his appreciation for Messing's psychic gifts by placing a bounty of 200,000 marks on his head. After the war he worked for many years as a performer, and it has been suggested that he was one of Josef Stalin's...

The Messenger Disks

The Messenger Disks by Bob Cassidy
  • How to give readings with the disks.
  • Effect: The two “Owl” disks are shown and their meaning explained. The mentalist next exhibits the “Hand” disk with the darkened edge and the sticker on the back. The spectator is asked to write a number, a short word, or a small picture on the back of the “hand” disk (on the sticker). This is done while the performer’s back is turned. The “hand” disk is turned face down, hiding the writing, and the disk is sandwiched between the face-up owls. (The darkened edged of the “hand” disk subtly proves that the “hand” disk remains...

The Bottle of Truth

The Bottle of Truth by Bob CassidyYou will learn how to prepare and gimmick two different kinds of bottles which allow wonderful lie detector and murder mystery effects or which can be used as adjunct in a one on one 'psychic reading.' With typical Cassidy genius one bottle allows you to glimpse colored marbles dropped in and the other bottle allows you to force a certain color of marble dispensed from the bottle. This opens the possibility for many routines. Bob describes two.

The Heathen Devices

The Heathen Devices by Bob CassidyBob Cassidy teaches a three part routine where each part's method cancels the other to leave the audience without a clue to how this is possible. One of the methods used is an adaptation of a Royal Heath idea. Thus the name of this ebook. The methods are very general and can be adopted to many personalized and customized routines.
"I believe that The Heathen Devices are my greatest contribution to close-up mentalism." - Bob Cassidy

Puzzled

Puzzled by Bob CassidyTHE ONLY VERSION OF THE CLASSIC PUZZLE EFFECT THAT APPEARS TO BE A NEAR TEST CONDITIONS IMPOSSIBILITY.

The method used in Puzzled is completely original with Bob Cassidy. It is based on an "out-of-left-field logical disconnect" that will positively fool anyone who sees it.

The premise of the effect was created by the late English mentalist, Romark, back in the 1970's. A few years ago there was a minor hissy fit in the magic world about the creation and ownership of a jigsaw puzzle effect involving an image of the Mona Lisa. (But apart from the fact that the effect used a jigsawed version...

Unified Remote Viewing: A Fly on the Wall

Unified Remote Viewing: A Fly on the Wall by Bob CassidyURV is a remote viewing presentation involving complete audience participation. In a series of tests replicating actual remote viewing experiments the audience is able, under what appear to be strictly controlled conditions, to perform amazing accurate remote viewings of hidden target photographs.

Such effects are rare in mentalism and have an extremely powerful impact. They not only provide a unique experience for any intelligent audience but serve to greatly enhance the mentalist's credibility.

Two versions of the routine are described. One is designed for use with a single participant...

21st Century Q&A

21st Century Q&A by Bob CassidyThe Question Answering Act - or "Audience Reading" as it is more commonly called today - has always been the major effect in mentalism. Q&A, while arguably the most powerful and memorable effect in mentalism, is rarely seen today because it does not fit into the "body language/ perceptionist" persona and style - its only explanations would appear to be pure mind reading or, as it was originally presented, communication with the spirits.

Here, in this ebook for the experienced mentalist - is a complete collection of original modern methods and, more importantly - presentations - for this classic...

The Mag-Eye Move Revisited

The Mag-Eye Move Revisited by Bob CassidyIn 1981 Al Mann devised a billet tear he called the "Mag-Eye" move. He enthusiastically demonstrated it for Bob Cassidy and gave him a copy of the manuscript, Phanta Graphs in which he had first described it.

Some time later, after playing around with the move, Bob devised a substantially different approach and a handling that allowed secret access to a much larger area of the billet. Bob also gave Al some of his ideas regarding the proper type of paper that had to be used to insure that the move worked smoothly as well as a presentational gambit that justified the use of a pre-folded billet.

Al was...

One Man Billet Routines

One Man Billet Routines by Bob Cassidy
". . . I have found most uses of billets that I've seen to be painful exercises in self-deception on the part of the performer, as to what the audience finds convincing or entertaining. But when I saw Bob Cassidy do his billet routine for an audience of more than a thousand, those silly bits of paper were reduced to virtual non-entities. By the time the routine reached its conclusion he was on stage, standing back-to-back with a spectator, engaged in what was apparently a full scale drawing duplication - with no billets or envelopes anywhere in sight or awareness." - Jamie Ian Swiss, Genii, The Conjurors' Magazine, January 2005

The Impromptu Psychic

The Impromptu Psychic by Bob CassidyFrom the introduction: "Seemingly impromptu mental effects are among the strongest you can do. The apparent lack of preparation is what makes them seem real. But never forget that it is the illusion of impromptu, and not its reality, that gives such effects their impact."

"Impromptu" does not mean unprepared, nor does it refer to the ridiculous notion held by many that to be truly impromptu the effect must be something you can do anywhere, anytime, even if you happen to be totally naked.

Impromptu, more sensibly, refers to the effect on your audience. The effect should either SEEM to...

Sleightly Mental

Sleightly Mental by Bob CassidyFrom the introduction:
As far as I'm concerned, sleight of hand (or any other artifice for that matter) has but one purpose - to convincingly establish a false premise, which I believe to be the cornerstone of all effective illusion and deception. The more convincingly that premise is established, the more amazing the resulting effect will appear to be.

The subtleties and psychological approaches of mentalism can, when augmented by sleight of hand, provide a directness and clarity of effect that is too often lacking in mental routines. The fact that sleights are avoided by many performers...
