A Close-Up Mental Mystery with Business Cards
The performer displays three business cards. One is handed to a spectator, who is instructed to write the name of a loved one on the blank side of the card. They then turn it face down on the other two cards, and mix them up so the location of this card is unknown to anyone. They lay them out in a row.
The performer then uses his mental abilities to correctly isolate the card with the name on it. Finally, without touching that card, he correctly reveals the name itself!
Greg Arce: "I can see this being something to easily carry around and perform at a moment's notice... a perfectly functional routine that I'm sure many will like to have in their arsenal."
Christopher Caldwell: "I think it's great! Bold, fun and easy to perform- just the way I like my mentalism. I am adding it to my impromptu repertoire immediately. Thank You!
Everett T. Wade, Ph.D.: "This is not an effect where a method is crammed into the logic of mind-reading, but rather a nice, straightforward, simple routine that can make a quick, strong impression. Because of this the method is quite hidden and natural."
Ever Elizalde: "I have to say I'm impressed with this routine. It is so clean and well thought out. Every movement looks completely natural. Most close-up pieces tend to come off as mental magic, because there's usually no time to set the scene appropriately. I feel this routine makes the effect look like the real deal."
