Mark of the Devil: Six Slick Routines with a Marked Deck by Paul Voodini

This manuscript features six routines from Paul Voodini, all utilizing a marked deck. As well as fully explaining the routines, Paul also discusses many subtleties that allow the performer to use a marked deck with confidence and the 'tricks of the trade' that mean the spectators never suspect for a moment that there is anything 'funny' about the cards.

The routines included are:

The Keeper of Secrets. The performer is able to correctly divine a chosen card despite the spectator desperately trying to keep its identity a secret.

Thought Transfer. Performer and spectator work together as a team to demonstrate ESP or thought telepathy.

Dead Man's Eyes. It is said that a dead man's eyes record the last image they see. Could this theory be true?

Love Thy Neighbour. The mind-reader is correctly able to predict a playing card despite the fact that neither the mind-reader nor the spectator have seen it or can have any knowledge of it!

Secret of the Mayans. A Mayan artefact, tied in with the 2012 doomsday prediction, allows a spectator to successfully select a pre-ordained playing card. It's a mystical miracle!

Forethought. The performer correctly predicts a cut to playing card before the cut is made!

This ebook is really beautiful.

The way he teach the patters clarify everything you need to go out and perform.

I tricked my professor with his patter. Just choose your best patter for each person.

What can I say?

Paul Voodini has excellent material as far as I can tell.

In his ebook, Mark of the Devil, his effect, SECRETS of the MAYANS is worth it's weight in gold.

There is quite a bit of memorization to do but the effect is tremendous.

You can use a marked deck of cards, a simple card force, or stacked deck etc. with this routine.

My opinion is to but the ebook and go online to find a cheap Mayan coin to do this GREAT effect.

When I got this on a whim, I just chuckled. A marked deck's a marked deck. Once you figure out how to read the markings, what else do you need? This was going to be a nothing read. Then I started reading and immediately realized that that au contraire, any fool mentalist can figure out someone's card with faux-mind reading shenanigans like "I'm seeing a, wait a red card. You are thinking of a red card..." This book has some cool ideas to clothe your naked marked deck routine in. Is it a world beater? No, and unlike Paul Voodini when he was younger, you aren't going to base your entire show on marked deck routines. But this is a solid book with six good routines for a little over a buck each.
