Memory Blank - not really an effect, but a fun presentational ploy.
Magic Tree House - an impromptu design duplication in which the drawing is done only in the participant's mind.

The Covert - Overt Wallet Peek - A great wallet peek done in full view!

Dementia - two spectators are shown a business card with a single word on it (they can sign the card if you'd like). The performer explains how he used suggestion to get them to see words that aren't actually on the card…and proves it!
Note that three of the effects described rely on the English language, but it may be possible to adapt these effects to other languages. Also note that two of the effects described are psychological in nature and the outcome may not be as described 100% of the time.
