Mavresis is coming back to the Academy with a whole host of new material. Nikolas has quickly become one of our favorite creators. His routines are always easy to do, creative and commercial!
On this evening you will learn a bunch of his killer new creations.
1) POISON ON STEROIDS
This is a 2-phase mentalism routine using the new Poison deck that will be coming out in the near future.
If you own “Destinations” you are in for a treat. If you don’t, no worries. I will show you how you can make this up yourself. The “Destination” pack has a secret feature that I took advantage of to create the fairest “Do As I Do” routine.
You are going to play a game with your participants. Every black card has an “action verb/word” written on the back. Every red card has a “noun”. When they name any black and red card, they will create a sentence. There are 676 different combinations. Let the game begin!
4) THE LUCKY CARD
Finding the spectator’s lucky card can be fun but also dangerous in case they select the “Ace of Spades” which many consider as the “Death Card”.
5) 3-PHASE MIRACLE CARD ROUTINE
This is a card act that is perfect for a parlor setting or even stage! A sealed deck of cards is used that has been shuffled by the participants. 3 participants select a card each. While my back is turned, I name all 3 cards with 100% accuracy. This is phase #1. Now, please allow me not to describe the next 2 phases because I don’t want to spoil anything. Just believe me when I say “it is getting better and better”.
6) ANY BOOK – ANY PAGE – ANY WORD!
That’s right. The spectator selects a book, they then THINK of any page and any word. Hopefully, I will predict everything!
7) THE “S” STACK
I will make a statement: “This is the easiest drawing duplication you will ever learn in your life”.
8) A TOY PREDICTION
This is a nostalgic routine that takes the participant to their childhood years. A novelty pack of toy cards is shown along with a wooden box that contains a prediction. The spectator selects a toy and the prediction matches.
9) FEELING LUCKY
Most people use playing cards to play games, gamblers use them to win money, and magicians to do card tricks. This routine combines all three!
10) VILLAINS Vs DETECTIVES
A fun match-up routine using famous bad guys and fictional detectives.
