Hi All,
I wasn't sure where to put this, but it is a routine/method/HANDLING of WoW I came up with to take WoW to a whole new level - A ****EN Miracle. For all you mentalists, I know you guys are going to love this. This is just to SHARE the handling with all of you, magicians helping magicians.

Imagine making an open prediction with a word written on a card. The spectators choose a card writes a word on the card. Your prediction doesn't match.... with just a shake... You have yourself a MIRACLE.

Check it out here (not an explanation, but I am sure all of you can figure it out)

I would like to thank Keith Barry for the wonderful idea/routine as well as Alex (BMWGuy) for collaborating with me on this.

Hope you guys like it and use this idea!

Chris

Looks real good. Although I do not have WOW, I would use that routine if I did.
I am getting so tired of slitting the throats of people who say that I am a violent psychopath.

Thanks, I know it might not appeal much to a card magician (ruins gimmick), but I think I am truly offering something SPECIAL to a mentalist.

Of course what a card magician could take away from this is duplicating a signature for an amazing Trasnposition

Perhaps it would also serve to write the word on the face of the card during that initial display moment using the old dry dodge or being careful with the marker Smile

Ever since I saw Keith Barry perform REVEAL by ADAM TOPHAM on the Ellen show, I knew I hadto get those Flash cards, but instead the collaboration between Chris(Suxx88) and myself was a great one I may add, and you can do the same exact effect as Keith, using the WOW gimmick!

Thanks Chris

I came up with a really streamlined presentation for WOW. I don't even put a card inside the gimmick... I just present it as a miniature x-ray machine and make the card appear as I pass the gimmick over the pack, and disappear as I move it away.

I appreciate all the PM's here and on Youtube

Please feel free to use this routine and don't hesitate to ask questions like many of you have when deciding to write on the gimmick, it's a tricky process that needs to be thought through

True,

Writing on the gimmick is tricky, and you have to be careful.

I actually messed up once, and then tore my gimmick apart, piece by piece, reconstructed everything, redid everything, and know it works like a charm.

If I get gasps and people telling me my book test is one of the best things I do, imagine when I combine it with picking a card and it matches.

Nice!

Feel free to let Chris or myself know if you are having trouble.

Chris was the one who had the idea, then we collaborated, and the rest is history, I am sure this effect will rock everyones world!

If you don't want to mess up the WOW! gimmick :

Use a 5 of diamonds (or whatever card your gimmick uses) and a blank playing card. Place the blank card on top of the deck and the 5 of diamonds second from the top.

Do a DL showing a regular 5 of diamonds and place it into the gimmick, leaving the gimmick face up with the 5 of diamonds in view. When you are ready to show your prediction engage the gimmick and shake the gimmick to reveal the word you wrote on the blank card.

Best,

Great idea, I'm really into open predictions right now, so this is right up my street!

The most abstract, unique and incredible use of the WOW gimmick that I've seen, was done by Jonathan Kamm and can be seen here:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L_neQyDgBqA

If your like me then I'm guessing you watched that video about 5 times? Amazing right?

Anyway, someone by the name of Yee Chung found inspiration from Jonathon Kamms video and came up with a workable routine for this idea. And can be seen here:

Hope you enjoyed these videos guys,

Cheers,

this is not ellen, but on ellen, hard to find clip... he uses a dictionary to get her to choose a card.

I have reason to believe a dictionary is also used in this routine but edited out
