When performing a thought of card across routine for more than two people do you think it is more deceptive to show the cards as a group(fan) or individually for the mental selection to be made as ricky jay does in the following link ?

My suggestion....PHIL GOLDSTEIN'S (AKA MAX MAVEN AFTER 1 PM, LOL) Shinkansen .. The easiest most effective/pratical version in my opinon. It can be modified for two or more people. http://www.penguinmagic.com/specialorderproduct.php?ID=2901

Good question, and I address this in my Thought of Cards Across project available from http://www.magicshop.co.uk both in eBook and hard copy.

Copies of the limited edition 'MindPlay' still available

Penguin Magic sayeth:
Effect: Four red-backed cards are displayed; they're counted and held by a spectator

Another set of blue-backed cards is shown, and a second spectator simply thinks of any one. The packets are held by the spectators, who stand far apart from each other.

With the utmost fairness, the mentally chosen card vanishes from the blue packet and appears in the red!
Does spectator think of ANY ONE? The demo on GEEK magic looks like a FORCE.

This is really a great effect. This is more force then mental selection, but it makes little difference. The method used for this trick is a method that I can always see a mile away, however, used for this trick, in this way, it fooled me, and has always gotten good reactions from laymen.

So...
The add is another example of a lie albeit a great effect.

The spectator BELIEVES he may have been concentrating on any one as his choice is apparently random. The card he is then thinking of travels leaving three cards behind. It's all about perception.... That is the effect as the lay audience remember it, magicians with more knowledge view it differently. I remember Max doing this with me and someone else on stage at Blackpool many years ago, so I got to appreciate how this version could also play 'big'

Excellent version of the effect. Others are discussed in my book on the effect "Across The Void", available from me or H & R Books.
