I carry my stealth wallet all of the time. In there I have some business cards and some paper.

I have a nice presentation using a CT. Kind of a personal effect that can lead into a reading.

I also like to perform:

A pic. duplication

evoque (Docc Hilford)

Astrology sign reveal.

Sometimes a book test providing there is a book that someone may have lying around

For me it's nothing new, just some simple effects with some nice presentations. I use to half to have the newest thing that was hot but found my self asking why when I kept going back to the same thing. Don't get me wrong there are some great effects being released all of the time but the only thing I have bought in the last year is a parapad and just the other day, Sanctum 2 (I know I'm late to the keger)

Ct is the best impromptu, I agree.

Yeah, my favorite impromptu trick when cards are around is the double lift. Oh wait, that's a technique, not an effect...? Why then are people offering the CT as a trick then... oh, they don't get it, I got it.

For me, and this changes a lot, it depends on what is around:

playing cards: Las Vegas Leaper, a variation of a Stewart James effect (“The Anticipator”, The James File, p. 1231)

business cards: Memory work (e.g., Glemme variations), effects that would be considered variations of Cassidy's Name/Place routine (closest thing to what I do is the Name/Place routine, at least), "magic square" routine (Combo of Paul Brook's and Doug Dyment's stuff)

random objects: something along the lines of Doc's E'Voque (however you spell it), psychological suggestion-type effects (I think I like some of the work out of PS3 but I might be confusing it with PS2: PS1 stuff is great but that's more a toolbox versus whole effects in the later editions)

nothing: readings (usually with a psychological slant, see P. Brook's "The Alchemical Tools"), physical pyschic stunts. There are a few good ones in "Devil of a Pub and Bar", along with a ton of other impromptu stuff, I particularly love the application of principles used in the coaster drawing matching game.

I usually actually carry a small card with a list of the impromptu effects I'm focusing in on at that time.

Telling the person about themselves, including details even their friends and family might not be aware of; relating details about their past, their present, their future; commenting on their hopes, dreams and aspirations; reminding them of curious incidents that happened in their lives months or years ago; passing positive and cautiously optimistic comments about their current concerns; leaving them with the knowledge that they are unique, special and well worth meeting; above leaving them with the feeling that it was a singular pleasure and a delight for me to talk with them for a while.

Ian has pretty well summed it up. THAT'S what mentalism is all about!

Thanks for posting that.

Theres a routine that has been coined the "F*** o**" technique. Its a totally impromptu piece that relies on nothing but my words and their imagination. Using it I can tailor ANY presentational angle to it and directly read their mind. Nothing is written down, EVERYTHING is done in their minds yet the performer can nail it time and time again. Its called the FO technique as that's the response of both Dr Todd Landman and Roni S when they independently had me perform it on them.

Over the years I have shared it with 5/6 other performers and I consider it the most powerful impromptu piece I can ever perform.

Im hyping it but I'm being honest at the same time Smile

My mental powers are telling me that Looch will now get inundated by people saying "is this for sale?"...

I am also seeing the colour green, and some kind "specialist magazine"...

To me this qualifies as one of the most relevant and valuable pieces of advice I have read in many years.

Thank you for that Ian
