Short warm up mentalism effects. Anytime, anywhere, practical, easy, direct and impromptu.
Some of the simple ideas presented in this ebook can also be used as safety nets in your existing routines.
A classic: A spectator hides a coin in one of his fists and the performer shows which hand.
- Impromptu – no gimmicks, no electronics
- Versatile - presentation can vary
- Anytime, anywhere, anybody
- Simple and direct
Here is a nice little effect and method that can be used to give away your business card and will leave a good impression on your spectator. It can be an alternative to another completely different method I explained in one of my ebooks (Love Mysteries).
Effect: The spectator finds the only business card that had a message on its back. It is the one that he freely chose to sign.
- Impromptu, no preparation, no R/S, etc.
- Versatile: Can be used for any occasion, event, venue or corporation, etc. just by modifying the message on the business card
- Everything can be examined before and after...
You predict which person will take which object among three, but without using Deddy Corbuzier's subtlety, and with NO ambiguity: "Linda's decisions: Gerry will have the business card, Linda will have the coin, and on the table, will be the pen."
Show five beer mats with cocktails on them, or five different beer caps, five color tokens, etc. They can represent candies, cocktails, M&M's, etc. Put a prediction on the table in full view.
After a fair elimination, only one is left. It is the one on your prediction. The bonus is that
you can also explain why this happened and how you subliminally influenced the spectator!
A fair guess
A card is selected from a shuffled deck (by the spectator). The participant creates a new card in his/her mind. The performer finds both cards BEFORE the spectator names them. This one requires some sleight of hand, but it is very strong, and worth the effort (and the price of this ebook!).
The performer places an envelope on the table and won't touch it again. A spectator thinks of a card. No force. Then he/she thinks of a number. No force. He/she can changes his/her mind.
The spectator opens the envelope and amazingly, the card and the number are in there!
Here is another system to predict almost anything you want and in any language. This is also something you can carry with you all the time and use as a universal out, or as a lifeline.
Two envelopes are placed on the table. One Spectator thinks of a card and of a number between 1 and 52. They read the prediction inside the envelope with their first name, the card and the number they thought of! This can be used for any plot, anytime, anywhere, for anybody and in close-up/parlor/stage. Can be a good backup tool as well.
