Interactive Matrix FormulaDave Arch
No doubt you've seen this formula applied to magic tricks on television specials or internet websites where you've been encouraged to put your finger on any card showing on the screen. Then as you follow the magician's series of instructions - moving your finger from card to adjacent card (with a sense of free choice), the magician begins to inexplicably remove cards on which your finger isn't resting until only one clearly predetermined card remains.
Although the formula has been used for decades as the basis for creating variously themed magic tricks (from comedy to the bizarre), the sharing...

Poor Man's EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomenon)Dave Arch
Finally a cost-effective method for establishing ambiance in the candlelit seance room by recording the proceedings and having them unexpectedly interrupted by a series of unintelligible guttural sounds.
Finally a routine that doesn't break the flow of the seance routine while the medium and the sitters make sense of the fully customizable sounds.
Based on an idea from Bob Cassidy, this video tutorial finally visually demonstrates step-by-step how to leverage the power of a free user-friendly laptop app (Windows/Mac Os/Unix) to achieve the above and more.

Timeline is a 3 minute short, scripted and theatrical close-up act using a borrowed deck of playing cards.
With only 2 basic sleights and your script you're able to make people feel that they're watching an expert at work. You tell a short essay on time and magic happens almost by itself while the essay is being narrated.
Each action and revelation is perfectly supported by the script. Here are the opening lines - "If there is one thing no-one can escape from – it is time. In fact even if you go out into the space or deep under water, you’re still dominated by time because your oxygen...

Gypsy Eradication RitualDave Arch
Just in time for your Halloween shows. While the rest of the group stands in a circle reading in unison the ritual instructions printed on what appears to be an aged piece of parchment paper, the person who'll be receiving the benefits of the ritual sits at a small table in the center of the circle with a piece of paper, matches, pen, candle, and plate. As that person follows the instructions being read by the group, the ritual unfolds - working itself. The only suggestion is to collect the ritual instruction sheets at the end of the ceremony to keep the mystery in the experience - preventing...

A Head Full of BooksMark Elsdon
A Head Full of Books has actually replaced the Hoy book test as my go-to casual mind-reading effect.
Whilst visiting someone's home (or in a bar or coffee shop that has books on the shelves) you ask someone to select any book from their library or off the shelf. He opens the book to any page and reads the first few lines to himself while you look away.
Without touching the book you immediately reveal what he just read! It's that clean.

Dantes System of Livespan ReadingRobert A. Nelson
Without any written or preliminary foolishness, The Dantes System allows you to deliver a terrific psychological reading to most any spectator. A reading so cleverly conceived and thought-out that it smacks of genuine mindreading.
This sight-reading is apparently the answer to the sitter's innermost thoughts, touching upon the trials and tribulations of the individual, delving into his or her past, discussing the present and probing deeply into the future.
Dantes devoted his life to "sight reading" and is regarded as a most successful reader. If you want to devastate a total stranger by...

Quadruple PredictionEmory Burton & Devin Knight
An amazing mental effect where the magician correctly predicts cards and colors despite odds of over 16,000 to 1 against it. A real stunner you can close a show with. A prediction so impossible that the odds are over 16,000 to 1 against it being correctly predicted.
EFFECT: You give a small sealed envelope to a spectator, saying he can open it at the appropriate time. You then take a deck of cards and shuffle them face up so the spectator can see the cards are really being mixed. You then have a spectator cut the cards twice. Now you show a rectangular piece of cardboard, which stands facing...

Blindfold Message ReadingRobert A. Nelson & B. W. McCarron
Arguably the most convincing - and simple - means of performing a sealed billet reading act.
There has always been a consistent demand for a good billet reading routine that can be presented under practically any circumstance, yet has sufficient effectiveness to accomplish its purpose. This method, we feel, meets these requirements most effectively. The means of presentation are varied and elastic. For instance, unprepared envelopes and slips of paper are passed to spectators to write their questions and name thereon. These are folded by any spectator and sealed within the envelopes. The...

Scarne Thinks AgainIan Baxter
Here is a 21st Century version of John Scarne's Think-A-Card, published by U.F. Grant back in 1938. Whereas Scarne's version relied on the convenience of writing predictions on cigarette papers, Baxter completely dispenses with this quaint idea with a new, slick presentation.
Daley was really fired up about this highly effective mental test from the ingenious Scarne: "You are about to become the possessor of a rare and beautiful gem in mental magic" he enthused. "Simple in its modus operandi and yet so tremendously effective...an almost perfect demonstration of mind reading."

Scripted #21: Add a NumberLarry Brodahl
A routine and script that (with an assist from Mel Mellers), transforms a rather dry piece of mentalism into a fun and entertaining piece of magic.
The plot of the Add-A-Number effect doesn't lend itself to the magical performer, as the audience knows that they're watching tricks, not psychic phenomenon, which means that the presentation of "seeing the future" isn't as effective as it could be.
Plus, the method is closely tied to the revelation. How could you predict a number unless you somehow knew what everyone would write or you switched the numbers?
This script - with a huge...
