Biagio Fasano
My Creepy Card 3 by Biagio Fasano

An ever-available packet trick: an amazing mentalism effect concerning the divination of chosen or merely thought cards, complete with prediction and final surprise.

This is an impromptu mentalism effect handled as a simple packet trick, involving an amazing first phase based on a prediction and a great final surprise. The conjurer, after showing nine cards of Spades, from Ace to 9, shuffles them and has a spectator cut the pack. Holding it facedown, the magician chooses one card without showing it, leaving it in view as his prediction. He has the spectator cut the remaining pack (of eight...

Magic of the Mind by Eddie Joseph

What was a $5 bargain in 1952 is a bigger bargain today. This valuable product should cost $59 when adjusted for inflation and we are selling it for only $12.

Excerpt from the foreword:

Just because one has acquired extreme dexterity in the manipulation department it does not stand to reason that MAGIC OF THE MIND can be easily presented as a bunch of tricks. The Magician appears in the role of a MENTALIST when doing MAGIC OF THE MIND. He is supposed to be working with his MIND and not his HANDS. Any attempt at speed or undue display of manual dexterity will ruin the whole thing. One should...

Richard Southall
Binary Squared by Richard Southall

The binary effect I always performed the most was called Binary Squares and it combined the binary effect with the Magic Square effect in a unique way. I have always considered this a very special effect and not only one of my best but the most enjoyable of all of my effects to perform. However, this didn't mean that there wasn't room for improvement. So I spent some time working on this, adding some new reveals, refining it, and road-testing it. Also, all the procedures that can so easily telegraph the method of binary style effects have been so well disguised that the final revelations are...

Vincent Gagnieux
Drops of God by Vincent Gagnieux

Can you recognize a wine just by its smell? Can you do it blindfolded? Can you do it without wine?

You write on three billets the name of your favorite wines (let's say for example "Gevrey-Chambertin", "Pommard", "Saint-Emilion") and display them in front of your participant. As you turn your back, you ask the participant to switch two of the "wines". And two more. It can be any two. And again, and again and again...When the participant is convinced that the wines are properly mixed, you face him, blindfolded, and ask him to hand you the "wines" one by one. You're then able to recognize...

Free Will Switch by Dustin Marks

This effect has an innovative twist on the traditional Free Will plot, where the spectator makes all the choices.

This effect serves as a fantastic opener, making it a suitable addition to your Everyday Carry (EDC), and best of all, it resets automatically. There are no complex flowcharts to memorize,...

Jeff Stone
Third Eye by Jeff Stone

Finally after nearly a decade, I've decided to release my version (with permission, of course) of Wayne Dobson's Big Revelation, Third Eye.

Effect:

The participant freely thinks of any card, then reveal the participant's thought of card as you unfold a sheet of paper with a series of jokes and gags disguised as an eye exam for her Third Eye with a final reveal that seems impossible.

Once she's thought of the card, and after you've apparently read her mind, but before she ever says it out loud you can place the thought of card on the table for her to turn over. She then names her thought of card...

AI by Unknown Mentalist

AI here does not stand for Artificial Intelligence. It is the key to the method used in the routine.

It is a self-working effect based on a classic principle wherein a participant freely chooses any USA State name and the performer is able to reveal the same.

This routine uses double-blank business cards. There is a one-time preparation and a 3-second setup is required before each performance.

You can use the underlying principle not only for the USA States theme but also for myriad other themes and premises.

Raphaël Czaja
Pocket Word Game by Raphaël Czaja

A prediction effect with an alphabet deck that fits in your pocket.

The magician picks four spectators to play a word game. He makes a prediction that he leaves face down, in full view, on the table and introduces a packet of alphabet cards: Thirteen cards with a different letter on both sides. Each spectator cuts, deals, and flips over the cards. The magician puts aside one card (a 'bonus card') and deals the rest of the cards among the four spectators.

The game is divided into two phases, a warm-up and the real deal.

THE WARM-UP: The spectators are asked to make up the longest word...

In each case, the volunteer from the audience will know how you conveyed information to him, but he shouldn't have any idea how you got...
