Mentalism from A to Z by Giochidimagia

The title sums up the spirit of the guide, in fact with this eBook the purpose was precisely to give an overview of the art of mentalism, talking about the techniques used, psychology, cold reading and much more, not getting lost in descriptions of details that only the individual performer can and must necessarily learn and refine by trying and trying again.

For this reason, no room has been given to the presentations. It seems a paradox not to mention the presence of an illusionistic effect when this is probably more than 90 percent of the effect itself, but, as said little, the presentation...

31 Days to Mentalism by Giochidimagia

It has been a few years since the publication of Modern Mentalism with its 3 Volumes and little time since the publication of Mentalism from A to Z. In these volumes, techniques, psychology, tricks, ethics and much more have been explained about the world of mentalism. This world is always immense as a heritage of creativity for which I wanted to publish this new guide with a different approach: not to mention particular techniques but making available to the reader only tricks of mentalism to be carried out immediately.

The aim is to create a real practical repertoire, to be performed...

The Billionaire Box by Graham Hey

A collection of 4 self-working gems plus a few visual gags to use in close-up or stand up.

Includes: The Billionaire Box

Four envelopes - each contains a key. Only one will open a locked box on the table. The envelopes are mixed-up by a helper. Then three members of the audience freely pick an envelope and try their key in the lock. None of them work. Your envelope is the only one left ... you open it, remove the key and it opens the lock! You get to keep the keys to your Porsche.

This is completely self-working and is great for stand-up or close-up for small groups, like a table at...

Mark Leveridge
Devil's Island by Mark Leveridge

This lightweight mental effect is suitable for close up, parlor or even stage and is very simple to do. A map is shown which has six named locations marked on it. A spectator mentally selects one and records his choice on a small card which is concealed in an envelope. Cards bearing the names of the six locations are shuffled by a spectator and placed by him entirely at random into six envelopes which are then given out to audience members. Despite all this, a prediction shown at the start leads to the correct person holding the envelope which contains the spectator's chosen island location. ...

Five different colored cards are shown to the spectator and each one has an object written on it which you can find in your house. The performer turns away and spreads the cards. The spectator is asked to select a card and show it around. There is no forcing. The card is replaced anywhere in the spread the whilst the performer is still turned away and then they are shuffled by the spectator ... then the performer places the cards into an envelope. The helper is asked to think of the object on the card they selected. The performer opens his hand to reveal a miniature object - it's the object...

A great mentalism effect for small groups to huge crowds.

Effect: A pile of cards with the name of a movie star on each one is shown to a helper. They remove one and it's placed into an envelope, whilst the magician turns away - the remaining cards are removed. It's a completely free choice.

There are no stacks, and no card set up - they can be freely shuffled by the spectator first. The cards are not marked. The envelope is 100% opaque. The spectator holds the envelope with their card inside, in front of their face - and the performer asks a member of the audience which movie the spectator...

An exceedingly clever use of Max Maven's Bonsai Force. Predict the free and random arrangement of four colored blocks.

But there is yet another benefit which is perhaps the rarest of all, when another creative spirit decides to explore something you've devised, and comes up with a new and different approach which expands your idea in ways you had not considered.

X-Ray Eyes by Sam Dalal

Methods and presentations for blindfolds, or 'sightless vision'.

Amongst the most sensational of magical effects, is the ability of the magician to do things blindfolded, which would normally require the use of his full vision. Like escapes, a blindfold drive is an excellent publicity stunt, in which you can involve the police department, the local medical and municipal authorities, the town council, the local newspapers and TV, and half the town people. It is one effect that can be performed under any conditions, drawing room, stage, club, arena, or across a town or state. And it is probably...

The Final Straw by Graham Hey

The Final Straw - a very clever mentalism effect. Five different colored straws in a cocktail glass. One straw contains a rolled-up gift voucher for the holiday of a lifetime and a year's supply of cocktails. All the others contain a note which says 'you lost!' Spectators select any 4 colored straws (no forcing) the contents of each straw is pushed out ... and they all lose. The remaining straw has the winning gift voucher. This is so clever and virtually self-working. You'll need to buy some straws - you should have everything else you need. As usual with Graham's effects, they are easy to...

Aether #17: Who Really Wrote the Expert? by Gregg Webb

Gregg teaches two methods for the same trick. The question this trick tries to answer is who was the famous author of The Expert at the Card Table? This trick will probably not provide any deep insights into this question but it may produce laughing, weeping, protesting, or other human emotions because the subject of Erdnase can evoke some very strong ones.

One method is based on equivoque, the other uses a Himber wallet.

Getting the Best of your Himber Wallet by Sam Dalal

Techniques and routines for the Himber Wallet.

The Himber Wallet is a change device for flat card and paper items, like currency notes or bills, playing or visiting cards, pay envelopes, paper slips etc., which is an understatement, like saying "The Rolls Royce is just an automobile". When the Himber Wallet is correctly handled, it is far superior to other change wallets, card boxes, or devices that serve the same function.

Some wallets allow one to subtly prove no change has been made, when in fact it has. The contents of one side of the wallet can change, while the contents of the opposite...

The Magic of Turin is a stage or living room mentalism effect, and if desired - with the appropriate modifications - it can also be proposed over the phone, with only the audio connection.

The proposed solution (for the effect in presence) also allows repetition of the performance, one after the other, since it uses tools and methods that allow this eventuality.

Two spectators are invited onto the stage: one of the two will be the mentalist's collaborator and will have to mentally suggest to the performer the place to direct the other spectator. The other person - in this example, a...

The ATM Pin and Other Stories by Renzo Grosso

All the great masters of magic and illusionism recommend two essential points in their meetings:

  • simplify the effects as much as possible, remove everything that is not strictly necessary,
  • build a patter, a story that is worth telling, that excites the listeners, that contributes to the creation of the perfect climax for the ending, to amaze your listeners.

The patter and the story justify and accompany the performer in carrying out the effect, and are always important, regardless of the method and technique used; in card magic, both in sleight-of-hand and in automatic or mathematical...

Limitless by Graham Hey

Here's a fantastic method for predicting virtually anything. The gimmick is simple and all you need to make it is two common items you might already have. The gimmick enables you to create feature effects that play huge.

The audience freely eliminates them one at a time until one remains - it's the one that has a large 'stain' on the back. Includes full routine. So easy to do, yet so clever. No force, no stooges - just a brilliant 'slap-your-forehead' method.

I love the mentalism effects on the phone, and I often use them in close-up and sometimes - appropriately modified - stage performances. I have collected more than 100, in the last 2 years and, slowly, I am proposing them with these publications. Some draw inspiration from real "pearls" of great artists, which I allowed myself to face, with extreme humility, developing them with a new setting, sometimes adding some interesting details. Others are a little older, even centuries, maybe even well known, but they are often "disruptive" as never before! Still, others are mine or, better said, by...

Everything happens in the mind of the participant and on the mobile phone of the participant. Nothing is ever spoken or written down. The participant just needs to have a phone with Google search on it. No special apps are needed on the phone.
