THE REAL PREMONITION – My take on Eddie Joseph’s famous Premonition effect, which eliminates all calculations through the use of a devilish “prompter list”, which is in full view but can’t be seen. Also, in my version the freely chosen card (which is the only card missing in the deck) is predicted in a letter in a sealed envelope! For the gimmick you get the printing templates which can be found at the end of the PDF.
REVERSE TAKE – The most convincing “take” with a thumb tip possible. This one will fool even the experts, guaranteed. It will take some time until you get this down, because it works completely against any logic – in your brain and that of the spectator’s.
WINDOW ENVELOPE – This should be the highlight for all mentalists. It is my version of the window envelope with a BIG difference: the envelope is SEALED and has no window. Despite the fact you can write anything onto the sealed paper inside. Completely practical method that is really easy to do.
ENTHYMEMATA – Hear my thoughts on billiard ball routines.
