Very nice examples of what Magic should be indeed. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks for your review. What you are reviewing is the first effect ("OSTRA"). The last effect ("OSTRAKINDA") has nothing to do with TH. It is more similar to "CHEAT HAND". Thanks for pointing this out to me. I have now added a summary of OSTRAKINDA and hopefully clearer explanations... PS: I don't know how to rate my comment (-: so I am instead rating yours!
The drawing can be easily modified to make it more modest and prude, by sticking 3 colored dots.
Interesting but I can't see the plus, compared to Si Stebbins for instance. It has the same drawbacks as S.S, and it is very easy with S.S to do the same things, without having to look at a "gimmick" that some (like me) don't even carry with them nowadays. And if you have to look at a gimmick, why not look at a crib sheet?! Plus the fact that it will look weird to look at it everytime you want to know the position of a card, while with S.S, it can be done as fast and in your head. Unless there were some examples of effects that you could do with this system, and not with other ones, I will stick to Si Stebbins.
This is exactly the kind of Mentalism I like. Fun to perform, simple, practical and direct. It is also the kind of booklets that "open doors" as the effects use simple and old principles you can apply to your own presentation and style. Even though some effects are described for stage or parlour, they can be modified for close up. Highly recommended! Gerard
Very good idea and ebook. I like it and recommend it.
