Heck, I think L&L should sell the DVD to the owners of the board for a lower price!

Sven's post reminded me of another point regarding the price. Richard is selling this at the same price now as he was when he first released it. So you're getting to prop that will last you a lifetime, you're getting an updated booklet based on years of performing (since he first released it) and now if you take advantage of the special offer, a $30 book with even MORE information to accompany the video.

This is a great deal and I don't know how anyone seriously considering performing this can pass this up.

Come to think of it, what can I buy today which is the same price that it was 30 years ago? All I can think of is - a computer, which is significantly different from the 1979 16k computer I bought. (Mmm, electronics!) Other than that ---?

I have received today the Sebastian's Board.
It's still in the box.

Tomorrow morning, I will open the box, and "touch" this beauty.
Also, immediately, I will see the dvd.

I own, from several years ago, the Q&A system from John Riggs. I never has used it.
Also I own the Q&A system from Docc Hilford. I never has used it.

I hope the Sebastian system would be the best for me... BUT, I must admit that I always fall in love when I watch the Osterlind MM vol.1 dvd performing with his Thoughtscan Board!

Please, can somebody, at this time, make us a brief comparison of this 2 systems?
I first sight, I'm thinking that the Osterlind one allows you to perform surrounded but, not the same with the Sebastian's board... It's true this?

Thanks in advance.
Best,
Joan

Yes it is, in a couple of complete shows from a few years back.
However I don't give them out in the open, as I don't want the shows to end up on YouTube just like what happened with a couple of my TV apparances, and without my blessings.
They were, and still are pulled apart an commented with the most redicoulous things by a bunch of kids.If I am not wrong, at least one of them has close to 500.000 views and around 2000 comments.
I really would prefer to have been without that.

It doesn't happen much more or less here than on Richard Osterlind's MM1.
Each ThoughtScan performance and the outcome has however to be different, as the audience always is.
Richard Osterlind is some 25 years better than me in performing ThoughtScan, so my best advice is to watch him as much as you can.

Please don't ever worry about those stupid comments. Usually those people are really jealous that they are not performing so they must take it out on someone.

Remember my favorite quote: "A critic is a legless man who teaches running."

You are absolutely right, and you find these people on YouTube, in the fora and anywhere else.

- and I simply love your favorite quote.

I actually don't care what these people say about what I do, but it could happen that serious people would stumble over such comments.
That's the reason why I don't want more of what I have done out in the open.

There is no reason to carry more wood to the fire, so to speak.

Thoughtscan and the presentation Richard has is wonderful. If I can see one thing (and the only thing) I can find a negative about TS is using a prop. I use a few props already and trying to get away from them. I love Q n A and if I can get away from this "mental" block, I may bring this into my show in the future.

Neither ThoughtScan nor any of the other boards, folios, pads or what have you are in my opinion "props" as such.
They simply are something you take notes on "to make you think better"

Another thing is which one of these boards/"props" are better.
My opinion should come clearly through earlier in this thread.

If the idea of using a board is the only thing that hold you back from trying out a routine like this, try anyway!
You may find it worthwhile.

It's funny reading comments like this. Osterlind has been using his ThoughtScan board for about 30 years and has never been questioned about it. While I haven't been using mine nearly that long, I too have never been questioned about it. I'm sure Sven would say the same thing.

You will never be questioned about the board. It's thin, it's black and is completely examinable at the end of the routine - not that there would ever be a reason to examine it.


What do you mean by questioning? People approaching and asking you about that 'prop'? They probably won't ask you... they don't NEED to ask you... because they'll have already asked themselves and answered "oh, it must be all done by that strange-looking 'prop'..."

I'm talking generally, I'm sure Osterlind's ThoughtScan is beyond suspicion.

But audiences are getting smarter and smarter, and that's very good!

Obviously you're not a fan of this prop. That's fine, but I'm still trying to figure out what you're contributing to this thread.

It's not, as you put it, "a strange-looking prop". Do you have a better suggestion? A better suggestion that:

1. Allows you to do the routine surrounded
2. Can be performed up close without fear of detection
and 3. Can be left on a table during or after the routine.

This isn't a pipe dream here. And the above conditions is how I use it.

I don't know how much real performing experience you have, you may have a lot, BUT one thing I can tell you that once you step in front of that audience as a mentalist, anything that isn't above board - the audience will call you out on it.

For my money, I can't beat the 30 years of experience Richard has with this.

So again, I'd be curious to know what you think is a better solution?
