I'm looking for effects where the spectator is the mind reader, or has other special powers. (e.g.: drawing dupe where spectator duplicates the performers drawing, or where the spectator does some kind of russian roulette, maybe without knowing so or spectator locates a hidden object)

I would like to be able to give or activate these special powers in the spectator, if only for a few moments.

My ESPsycrets routine builds to a point at which the participant appears to have gained the ability to read minds.

My The Third Man effect appears to show spectator-owned abilities too (it's currently not available - sorry).

I mention these not to flog my wares (much Smile) but to note that I think that these types of effects are really attractive. They avoid the element of, "look how great I am," that is so often the core part of mentalism effects. Make it about them, not you...

My new routine for Jon Allen's Pain Game makes the spectator the star as they decide which bags I crush, and which I leave alone. Avoiding the spike.

I looked around for Pain Game. It's out of stock at my dealer. Any dealers in Europe that are still selling this?

You could order it direct from Jon

http://www.close-upmagician.com/index.html

Go to the magicians only section (there's a link on the left hand side, just scroll down)

I haven't had this long but I must say it's the effect I'm putting more work into than almost all my others.
I just love it.

It's quite a heavy package, I'm not sure what postage would be like.

I think Alain Nu has a drawing dublication in one of his books that could be sold as reverse mind reading...

Best,

I used this in my book, MindCraft: Perceptions. I think the effect was called Intuitional Power; essentially the mentalist bestows the power of intuition on a selected spectator which enables them to read the mind (or see the drawing) of another spectator.

I honestly cannot think of any mentalist effect that CANNOT be accredited to a spectator. Unless someone can tell me differently?
I actually want to lose this one, honestly! Smile

My "Forever Jung" effect meets that description exactly. A group draws simple symbols or designs. They are collected and mixed by someone in the group. Then, one is isolated and kept out of view of everyone (including the performer). The participant is able to duplicate the randomly selected design.

Yes. Is sending a thought less active than receiving it? (Johannes Trithemius didn't think so.) Likewise for prediction effects.

I'd also suggest that the idea of mental abilities as 'powers' -- anomalous things separate from the rest of human functioning -- is not only generally dubious but not conducive to plausibly demonstrating them in other people.

Lots of James Biss's effects are on the 'active participant' model.

I perform an effect that I combined from Lewis Jone's Seventh Hevean and a Knepper effect. Did it last night and it truely amazes and is unexplanable to the spectator. They choose a card and you put the deck down and don't touch it again. They place their card on the deck and then cut it as many times as they like. Then the spectator deals cards down until they want to stop. The card they stop on is their card. It is not 100% but there are outs that make it look 100%.
