The 16 Magic Square Mystery

Robert A. Nelson
The 16 Magic Square Mystery by Robert A. Nelson

Positively the most memorable way to ensure that spectators keep your business card. Any spectator calls out a number, say between 40 and 100. The performer instantly draws a Magic Square on the back of his business card (or has a rubber-stamped grid of 16 squares already on it). With no false moves, the mental magician fills in all 16 squares of the grid and hands the card to the spectator, with a request to keep it for luck. He then mentions an interesting fact about the lucky piece the spectator now holds. If any row of four numbers, either across, down or diagonal, are added together, they...

Strongest Thought

J. G. Thompson Jr.
Strongest Thought by J. G. Thompson Jr.

We're going to let the words of the immortal Robert A. Nelson describe this amazing psychic demonstration.

A volunteer assistant (not a confederate) hands out to any spectator of his choice, white cards and envelopes and the performer requests these persons to "write something." The spectators comply and seal their cards in the envelopes provided, after which they are gathered by the volunteer who passed them out. All this is perfectly fair, for the performer doesn't leave the stage at any time. The volunteer assistant takes care of everything.

After securing all the envelopes, the volunteer mixes them...

Dr. Q's Tarot Telepathy

Dr. Q's Tarot Telepathy by Floyd Gerald Thayer

Finally, a two-person mentalism act that doesn't use complicated codes, expensive electronics or stooges.

This is a godsend for the average mentalist, who may be wary of the time spent in training (and retraining) partners for the traditional two-person act. Tarot Telepathy transcends the code requirement, relying instead on the clever application of the "cradle-to-grave" type of psychological reading offered by the professional medium.

The performer, acts as the Medium, and is blindfolded and seated upon stage. His female assistant circulates among the audience, and randomly stands beside...
