What is S.E.M.P.E.R.? (Special Esp Memory Powers Enhanced Radically)
A special trick with a flexible method that offers wide-ranging presentational possibilities. It uses an ordinary deck of 52 poker cards and the trick will be deceptive even for many illusionists, but above all its impact on the audience is devastating.
Two spectators are asked to take a card and put them unseen in their pockets. The magician explains that, under these conditions, it is obviously extremely difficult to be able to identify the cards. Nevertheless, and in order to demonstrate to the public the uncommon skills of the magician, the two cards will be guessed one by one by two very different methods and, if the first suggests (falsely!) that a prodigious memory is the logical explanation of the discovery, finding the identity of the second card will leave the public out of breath.
- Deceptive, both for lay people, cardicians and mentalists.
- It simply requires knowledge of any pre-ordered deck of cards, such as Mnemonica by Tamariz or Si Stebbins stack, and no other special mnemonic effort.
- A new mathematical stack is introduced and fully explained.
- The VR Stack Pro sequence looks absolutely random and the cards will seem well-shuffled also for most expert magicians.
- The one in use will be a standard deck of 52 different cards, it isn't marked, it does not contain duplicates or any kind of gimmicked cards and, at the end of the experiment, all can be left to be checked by the audience.
- Two completely different ways to perform the effect will be taught.
- The first way to perform the trick is the easier (but still having an incredibly powerful impact) requiring just a basic skill level.
- The second way requires an intermediate level of skill, making still more deceptive the method and the secret involved.
S.E.M.P.E.R. started with an idea that gradually evolved into something more complete and more incredible. We invite you to study the content of this work because it will undoubtedly provide you with the inspiration you need to create your own small or large masterpiece.
"S.E.M.P.E.R." is a great effect, which does what it promises: a quick memorization demonstration followed by an impossible divination! It is an effect that the public will find hard to forget!" - Yago Illusionist
"S.E.M.P.E.R. is a little gem that is highly recommended for all magicians because not only it will give you the ability to quickly learn a new routine, but it will also teach you a new stack that is magician-proof! The logic is brilliant and will amaze even the most experienced magicians, and alone is worth more than the price of this eBook. As for the routine, it is very well constructed and has a strong impact, offering a version for "amateurs" and one for more experienced magicians. The first one is already of strong impact and, if presented well, it allows you to impress everyone. The version for experienced magicians, on the other hand, brings the performance closer to the level of "miracle". I recommend this eBook to both hobbyist and professional magicians, to cardicians and mentalists too. If you combine the mathematical genius of Biagio with the magical genius of Felipe, well, you're on the safe side!" - Mattia Bodino
