SWAMI OPENER (Corinda): The performer enters holding a business
card. A spectator calls out a two-digit number. That number is predicted on
the business card! This is a perfect opener guaranteed to catch the attention
of the audience.
MAGIC VS. MINDREADING (Annemann): The performer causes a deck
of cards to spell to a mentally chosen card, then shows a remarkable coincidence
with a second deck and finally shows the card was actually predicted long before
A QUESTION AND THE ANSWER (Annemann): One of Theo Annemann’s
greatest routines! The mentalist answers a secret question in the most direct
manner possible! This is a monster effect using only a pencil and a few pieces
EXTRA-SENSORY PERCEPTION (Annemann): You can duplicate chosen
designs in the fairest possible way using this classic method! Make this up
in just half an hour!
A WORD IN THOUSANDS (Koran): A spectator chooses any word from
any page in a huge book. Without any pumping, the mentalist reveals the chosen
word on the back of a blackboard! This mind-boggling effect is fully explained
along with complete directions for the construction of the apparatus!
EL NUMERO (Bergson): Using a few index cards and an envelope,
the mentalist causes a spectator to choose the very number he has predicted
on the back of the envelope. This is direct, simple and awesome - the fairest
version of this effect yet!
SYD BERGSON CENTER READ (Bergson): This utility technique will
enable you to gain any information written on an index card without any tearing
or burning. Osterlind’s touches make this a masterpiece!
TELEPHONE DIRECTORY (Tong): Anyone freely chooses a page in
a legitimate telephone directory. The mentalist reads his mind and writes down
the telephone number the person is thinking of! This is clean, clear and direct!
SEVEN KEYS TO BALDPATE (Annemann): This is the original (and
best!) version of the classic effect. Only one key out of seven opens a lock.
Audience members freely choose the keys and the mentalist determines who has
the right key! Both the lock and keys are legitimate!
MARKED THOUGHT (Mason): The mentalist causes a spectator to
find the only matching pairs of ESP symbols while they are face down. This method
allows for a completely free choice and an ordinary deck of ESP cards!
