I have also performed this effect several times and the reactions have been great. One lady grabbed the cards (ha, ha!) and kept asking me to do it again. So, a bit later I did with her watching for the 2nd time. She still didn't get it. No one has. Great misdirection. This has been money well spent.
It takes 4 to 6 minutes for the brain to die without oxygen. I can fix anything in that amount of time.

Agreed. I just got this and I think it's awesome~When I first viewed the business card variation, I thought misdirection would be difficult, but it's so easy! The only flaw I would say is the 3rd variation where they think of a number 1-10 and it appears on your arm....it's a little ridiculous as it does not work everytime. He suggests using 3 people and that should ALWAYS work, but still...i don't like taking risks; as this variation is pure luck.

I learned the Banachek version from the PSI series but have never been able to perform it since the marks don't show up no matter what I do.

Does this introduce any new techniques that might make the marks show up? I've always thought it was a great performance piece and would love to learn a new way to actually get the marks to stay... short of acid, napalm or high power laser beam.

Doiron,

While I agree that old illusions can still be great today... the people ARE right when they say they are "corny"... or at least, partially right.

Let's face it, with special effects in movies the way they are, we have a MUCH more sophisticated audience today than in previous generations. Not to mention, internet discimination of tricks, magicians who have revealed various illusions, etc.

Consequently, the audience today is more sophisticated and demand better performances. It's not that the tricks themselves are corny (well, some are), but the patter/performance needs to be updated from time to time to deal with the audience.

With a slight modification to the routine, you can make just about anything appear. I did the routine with a PCT and had a persons full first name appear (the name was Alicia). I don't think my little addition is revolutionary, in fact I would almost assume others are doing the same thing with it. It just allows me to be more elaborate in what information can be revealed. If anyone's interested, just PM me.

This is one of my favorite new routines to perform and will be in my bag for a long time! Smile

I think this effect is really really good.
I have used it many times, and always get gasps.
one woman brings it up everytime I see her.

Is it true that you can have any THOUGHT OF number or name appear, as advertised?
Its not what you do, but how you do it.
