Hi everyone,

I've be working on an effect, and I've come to an issue. I need to force a word, and I would like to do that without using "unnatural", if any props.

Does anyone know of a "mental" word force?

Any ideas?

Please respond, or PM me!

Thanks!

Yeah I did get it! It's definitely not a full performance in the demo video (unfortunately because that'd be magic Smile ), that being said, I still think it's pretty good. I have yet to use it live, but I plan to soon.

For $10 I think it's worth it; he gives you a lot of info and ideas in two PDFs and a video, which is really nice.

I read the reviews and people say that people will kind of work it out after they have left?

Not good for me because I see a lot of the same people coming back sometimes xD

I prefer forcing a word with a book and a riffle force or a billet switch.
Or you can do it during a preshow Smile

Doing it with the right prop and timing can be the right solution Smile

Peter Turner's "Wish you were here" is a good propless force of a specific landscape. I've never seen Total Control before, but knowing Matt's work, I'm sure its devious!

Do you need to force a specific word?

Can you come up with a Chunnel or a mental yarn type of force? These are highly adaptable principles.

Is it a word they think of at random, or a specific word you want them to think of ?

Write down several words and PATEO force the word.

if it is a common word (say for example TREE) then ask them to give you a list of things you might find a large garden. pretend to write all their answers but write TREE on every piece of paper. Then ask them to pick any piece of paper. hide/destroy the other pieces of paper.

An excellent method for guessing a random word is Atlas Brooking's Train Tracking, but that needs some time to understand and practice the method.

Not impromptu but if you could carry the card gimmick in your wallet you could make it check out 'booked' good one word but you need a book. I have the DVD if you're interested p.m. me

You could do "Toxic" wherein each number of the result will represent a letter in the alphabet. Obviously pick a word (if possible) that wouldnt require the spectator to do too much counting to arrive at each the letter. The less vowels, the more believable it'd likely be.

I would recommend the Svenpad, or something similar. I'm not sure if a spectator would class a note-pad as a prop, and the fairness of the selection should make the pad pretty much invisible and fall well below suspicion.
