Following the mentalism issue of Triplets 6, this one, Triplets 7, will also be mainly mentalism, specifically about Equivoque. I learned a lot about this, with 5 objects, from Max Maven's video, and at the same time, I discussed this with Charles Reynolds who in turn discussed it with Pat Page. Then I put in some work of my own and came up with a very practical way of working this.
I will go into every detail. Every mentalist I have shared this with thought my procedural changes worthwhile.
Next, I will go through every object I can think of with which to do this feat. I once saw Kreskin do it with cat toys. Of course, billets come to mind. But there are many day-to-day objects that can be used, and your choice will affect the atmosphere of your piece.
Moving along, I will explore some lesser-known ploys and updates which can be applied to the Vernon 5 Card Psychological Force, which is actually done wrongly by many otherwise well-posted magicians. Finally, I explore the idea of doing Equivoque and the Vernon 5 at the same time with 2 identical packets and achieving synchronicity.
In Addendum, I'll include a short article on the drawing of a portrait of Eugene Edwards who wrote Jack Pots: Stories of the Great American Game. I will include the portrait. The art technique I used was developed over the time that I was an Adjunct Professor at the Pratt Institute. Last, I'll mention that Eugene Edwards may have been a pseudonym for a man who may have written other works under various names.
But, whatever name he was writing under, he was one cool guy.
