Five cards with different emotions written on them are placed into non-marked envelopes and freely mixed up. The performer holds each one against his forehead. Can he feel the 'Love' card tonight? He certainly can! Easy, baffling mentalism.

Bonus effects:

Secrets of a Vaudeville Mind Reader by Mystic Alexandre

In the dimly lit chambers of an old book store, tucked away in the heart of an antiquated town, I stumbled upon a handwritten booklet that would alter the course of my journey as a mentalist and psychic entertainer. The booklet, tattered and cloaked in mystery, beckoned to me like a siren's call, promising revelations of an enigmatic world that had long faded into obscurity - the world of a Vaudeville Mind Reader. As a seeker of esoteric knowledge and a student of the arcane arts, I would unearth in this dusty place a small treasure of wisdom that transcended most of what I had encountered...

Six Appeal by Mark Leveridge

An envelope is shown and a single card removed from inside, but not shown. The envelope is otherwise empty. This card is a prediction and is replaced into the envelope and left in view. Six Jumbo cards are freely and openly displayed and various spectators are asked to choose any of the cards to eliminate until just one is left.

Despite the fact that there is genuinely no force or selection control, the prediction card exactly matches the randomly arrived at selection.

This direct effect is ideal for a close-up or parlor show.

The subject will have three important choices to make leading to a baffling and mysterious conclusion.

You can convincingly point out in the presentation that a different choice would've led to a different result. That's clear. Yet the whole thing seems to have been mysteriously ordained, and the subject is blessed with a positive message.

Mentalism with Banknotes by Renzo Grosso

Until a few years ago it was possible to propose an interesting effect, using a euro banknote (any), which the spectator took out of his wallet. The serial number consisted of a letter, which identified the country, and a series of numbers; the essential feature was that each country had its own control code; by removing a number it was possible, through a procedure that we will see later, to identify it.

Then new banknotes were printed, with a new type of serial number (before it had a letter, which indicated the country; now it has two letters, the first identifies the country, the second...

In my methodical (and stubborn) search for effects to propose over the phone, numbers are the absolute protagonist. Except for some small stratagem, the final principle is always the consequence of one or more mathematical principles. Inspired by some well-known effects, I became curious and tried to go back to the principles, so as to be able to use them, alone or with others, to generate other interesting combinations. I think the table of contents highlights the object of this publication well:
