Watch a couple of my videos for some "short Mentalism" ideas.

Why not the odds? I thnk its perfect

Indeed. Why not ODDS? Can play VERY large, can use multiple audience members- (check threads on Café for routine suggestions), relatively easy, could tailer it for running right around 4 minutes. I've closed with it AND opened with it, and it kills. Sure, MOAB's great, assuming you have a $350 copy of this effect. 4th dimensional telepathy too complex unless you're really familiar already, and could well run over 4. Pulse stopping, again, unless you've practiced this, and have a killer routine, not a great idea, and won't have "wow" factor, dangerous monte same thing. You could also do Cassidy's Name/Place, which can be done in a shorter time than 4th Dimensional, and is also very powerful. Don't need to burn a billet, either to do it. PK touches would be great too, but again, must already be part of your repertoire.

Sure, check out 'THE WELL', an amazing card stage effect by Mark Townsend. It is in the book Card's of Influence by Knepper/Townsend. This one even slays magicians/mentalists. I saw him perform it at a Lecture.

If you have MOABT, do it using an eminent professor or a dean or some other well-known figure from the faculty. Take a little time and (hopefully) amusing byplay to establish a rapport with the professor and to get the rest of the audience on your side. Then, revealing his word should go over big. There's something inherently satisfying about a student reading the mind of a professor. Anyway, just a thought.

Do the headline reveal from MIND READING - Knepper and friends

All you have to do is reveal the info over four minutes

Totally impossible, and the mechanics are out of the way so you can spend four minutes presenting

Also, a headline reveal feels pretty huge for something that only last four minutes!
