Winnebago: an experiment in remote viewing by Simon Caine
"A wonderful presentation! This is going directly into our act, highly recommended. So good, I hope no-one else buys it!" - R Lee Davis (
In 1978, the US military commissioned Project Stargate, a team of researchers and scientists with one goal in mind: creating a psychic spy capable of seeing through someone else's eyes. They failed. You won't.

Winnebago is a stunning 'moment-maker' routine that uses nothing more than a regular, ungimmicked deck of playing cards: one participant takes any freely chosen card into another room, only looking at it when they are totally alone (no one else EVER sees this card until the very end of the performance).

Despite this isolation, another participant is able to see through their eyes and visualise the card being looked at with 100% accuracy!

Winnebago is truly something that will get your audience talking, and make both participants feel like they took part in something truly inexplicable.

Not only a perfect routine for a casual performance, Winnebago also includes details on performing this remote viewing miracle in a close up environment!

Winnebago is essentially "Calling the Cards"--or in this case, card--with the twist of having the spectator as mentalist. (Watch Richard Osterlind's version of Calling the Cards on a few of his DVDs with the spectator's having three cards in his pocket. It is fantastic.) The routine, played as remote viewing, is OK; it will definitely work if you have a standard mentalism technique down cold; and although I haven't performed it yet, I am fairly certain that I could get a nice reaction out of it. But it's just not worth $15, more like $8 or $5--or maybe even less as one of nine effects in a version of Mark Elsdon's classic Conversation as Mentalism booklets that go for $30 each. Anyway, I hate to be negative to sincere, hardworking mentalists who put out material, but my rating reflects a good effect that is way overpriced.
