Young magician John Gelasi presents three new takes on a classic plot in packet card magic: the brainwave effect. Each of these new effects are novel, fun approaches to the plot, with varied methods and handlings, so you're sure to find one that you'll love performing. Better yet, each effect ends completely clean, with all of the cards being totally examinable at the conclusion. Resets are fast, making these the perfect effects to have in your wallet for that spur of the moment performance.
The eBook contains these three new routines:
The Royal Wave: Impromptu "B’wave" at its best. The same ace as a selected suit turns face up, and the other cards in the packet are shown to be the cards needed to complete a royal flush.
B'ackwards: "B’wave" backwards - A selected queen turns blank in the packet, and then changes color on the back.
Another Wave Pun: Two packets of aces. One ace is selected, say the ace of spades, and it turns out to be the only printed red-backed ace in a packet of blank blue-backed cards. The magician claims that the second packet of aces may have influenced the spectator’s selection: the ace of spades in that packet has "Pick me!" written on its back, while the other three have "Don’t pick me" on their backs.
In addition to full explanations, each effect comes complete with an exclusive video demo, to ensure that you are able to learn them all in the easiest possible way.
