MORE: Multiple Outs Reimagined by Unknown Mentalist

This intro price will go up to $12 from December 20, 2021.

Multiple outs is one of the oldest, classic, and powerful tools in mentalism. Several classic effects and routines in the history of mentalism and magic are built around multiple outs. Some of the standard tools like a pocket index were born out of this very concept of multiple outs.

In this manuscript, we will explore the 'DOUBT' method for constructing multiple outs. This is a technique or strategy which makes multiple outs much easier and more effective for many situations. This technique uses double blank business cards and...

Scott Creasey
The Sandwich Peek by Scott Creasey

Here's what your audience sees: You take a stack of business cards and show them on both sides then hand one to a volunteer to draw a picture, write a word, print a number, or even write a question, there are no restrictions. The stack is turned blank side up and their card dropped drawing side down on top. It is then fairly cut to the center where it remains reversed in the middle at all times.

Even under these conditions you can get a full card peek, reveal the information and yet still show their card reversed in the center whenever you wish.

Finally, you run through the stack and...

The Four Card Mystery Presents: Influence by Boyet Vargas

The Four Mystery Presents: Influence is a follow-up effect from a previous release. It is a three-phase card-matching mentalism routine that demonstrates your ability to influence the cards of the participant.

  • No sleights
  • No secret markings
  • No gimmicks
  • Very little memory work
  • The participant has freedom in the mixing process

This effect exploits the different uses of my newly developed method featured in my book The Four Mystery Presents: Remote Viewing. The method enables you to have the participant mix the cards, and yet, the mentalist is still able to determine and control the possible outcomes.

Maurice Janssen
Baby Bingo by Maurice Janssen

Baby Bingo is unlike traditional bingo where someone calls out letters, followed by numbers until someone yells BINGO! In Baby Bingo no letters are required and only one number is needed to get a bingo. A random participant thinks of any number from one to thirty. If they see their number on a card, that's a bingo and places it face-down. Cards that do not have their number, they put aside (in their pocket or purse). The performer looks away while they look through the cards.

The participant is directed to a prediction that coincides with how many bingo cards would have their lucky number....

Visual Telepathy by Renzo Grosso

The effects of mentalism on the phone have become, for me, in the last two years, almost an obsession! This effect is a creation of my friend Boyet Vargas, The Four Card Mystery; my version is none other than the "telephone" version, with only the audio connection, it is my modest contribution to the diffusion of Vargas excellent work! The goal is to conduct the entire routine without being able to "eye" the cards in any way; the "forcing" is necessary and must be masked with an appropriate introduction: I have invented two, which I consider effective, which I propose below.

This manuscript explains two interesting and useful forces with dice. Normal ungimmicked dice. One of the forces can even be done without actual dice - with just imaginary dice. So obviously, this force will find many uses in propless effects. The other force needs a couple of actual dice - ordinary and ungimmicked. Both the forces can be performed in face-to-face situations, in virtual shows, or even over voice phone calls.

You are sure to find several uses and applications for these forces. However, to get you started the following...

Double Think by Adam Hudson

Two mentalism card routines.

Cut It Out

The spectator is asked to cut a regular packet of cards and to complete the cut by placing the bottom half on top. The performer ribbon spreads the cards face-down onto the table, inviting the spectator to slide any card from within the spread. The selection is at this stage kept face-down with its identity remaining unknown.

The packet is once again gathered up before the spectator is asked to again cut the deck into two piles. The position cut to is marked by placing the lower half of the deck onto the upper at a right angle. The selected card...

SpyCat Wallet by Mark Stone

Turn a $10 modern, minimalist wallet into a devastating first-class peek device, and instantly read the spectator's mind.

Everyday use wallets have become smaller and smaller over the years because we have changed from a mostly cash society to a mostly 'plastic money' society. This means a typical wallet today only needs to hold a few credit cards and a driver's license and thus it is much smaller than the wallets of days past. This completely normal-looking peek wallet is small and thin. Purchase it for about $10 and then modify it to turn it into a deceptive peek wallet in a few minutes. ...

The Kryptic Force is an easy yet powerful force but very little known in the field of magic or mentalism. As with any force, here too the applications of the force are limited only by your imagination. A few interesting routines and effects are shared here. But you can surely come up with many of your own routines using this beautiful force.

The actual process to force is very fast and direct. Maybe, depending on your presentation, it may take all of fifteen seconds to perform the force. Or you can stretch it for as long as you want. This is not a psychological force. The Kryptic Force...

In many mentalistic effects, the spectator answers the performer's questions in a sincere way or not, without the performer knowing the choice made.

The concept of "lie or truth" makes the effect stronger and the idea that the illusionist guesses however reinforces the memory of an effect as an exceptional event, almost a miracle.

In the effect presented here, a further degree of freedom has been added: after the first response, the viewer can decide whether to maintain the same behavior (lie / truth) or if he prefers to change it.

In practice, the two answers can be LIE / LIE, TRUTH...
