I have to say that I love the cerebro version that my friend james put out with the original cerebro orders. I think he only offers it's only special order these days, but heres some of the perks.

There are no forces, no switching of numbers, peeking or stooges. The numbers can be freely chosen, added up and independently verified yet the total appears in an envelope that has been handed to a spec before the effect begins. The performer is legitimately blindfolded and has his fingers in his ears the whole time.

Scott, the Cerebro version sounds really interesting! Can you provide contact information for purchasing it? Thank you for your help.

Banachek's bargain add-a-number gimmick can also be found in his book "Pre Thoughts." Not only is it cheap and easy to make, but it doesn't give off any prop vibes. The routine is excellent, too, with (no surprise) some nice subtleties. I did get burned once, though, when one of the spectators noticed that his number and the one of the spectator after him added up to more than the f***e total. Better audience management needed on my part.

I vote for Carlyle's pad. It's ingenius, non-gimmicked, and the fact that the spectators can all check their own numbers AFTER the addition is priceless. Get yourself a 50-cent Meade memo pad from Staples... put in 10 minutes of work... and you're done!!! No magnets, nothing. Pure brilliance. Well-worth the price of his DVD alone.

Gabelson: Have you used the Caarlyle pad in performance? Have you ever had any heat on the 'flipping around' part ? Hope that is understandable.

Thanks, - Nicodemus

Best Add-A-No? In my modest opinion is the one you build for yourself with a bunch of blank business cards.

One version is from Phil Goldstein and it uses an half-pass as part of the Modus Operandi (it's the one used in Autome, to be clear!)

The other version, the one I prefer, uses the OTL principle (Myself, John Riggs and possibly T.A.Waters came up with different versions for using this as an Add-A-No device).
Then you'll rise right before my eyes, on wings that fill the sky, like a phoenix rising!

I think John Riggs also describes how to make one in his book The Psychic Agenda.

Paolo: Is T.A. Waters in Mind, Myth, & Magick somewhere? I will start leaving through but He describes things mostly in text so I thought with so many pages a clue would help.
