Hey guys,

Here is another one, that I am working on and will be finished soon.

Its called "THE GIFT"

Effect:
Mentalist states to Spectator #1 that he has a gift for her, and takes out an imaginary dice…….he states that this dice is special, as it has 10 sides, and gives the dice to the spectator.
Mentalist instructs Spectator #1 to roll the imaginary dice on the table, and see what number landed face up…….Spectator #1 rolls the dice, and says it landed on “5”
Ok….
Now, the mentalist turns to Spectator #2, and states that he has a similar gift for him, but instructs him to roll the imaginary dice, but not say anything, or write anything down.
Spectator #2, now has a number in mind, that nobody else knows but him.

Mentalist has the cards well mixed and shuffled, and instructs Spectator #2, that as the cards go by, he is to remember the card that falls at his number…..all this happens while the mentalist looks away.

Once the spectator confirms that he has a card locked in his mind….then the cards are set down on the table.

Mentalist asks Spectator #2 to name his thought of number for the first time, and he says “7”…

So, now mentalist takes the dice from Spectator #1, which was “5”, and adds it to dice from Spectator #2, which lets say is “7”….. to get a total of 12.

11 cards are counted……and the 12th card is lifted…..Mentalist asks Spectator #2 for their card…………..and it’s a perfect match.

There are 6 variations taught, even one with a memorized stack.

More to come soon............

I received one of the review copies and have read through it. I have not yet performed it (literally received it and read through it twice in the past 10 minutes). I don't know Alex other than reading his comments on this forum. The Gift is 5 pages and plays out as described in Alex's description. I love the use of the imaginary dice since I think this helps disguise methods. I also love the fact that the second number selected is kept silent at first. Overall the effect is very strong and will be favored by anyone who likes ACAAN type of effects. The main version does require some sleight of hand. Importantly, Alex gives multiple variations on how to perform the effect which I think makes sense so that the performer can perform in a way in which he is most assured and confident. Finally, proper crediting is done at the end of the effect. Overall, I like these type of effects and will definitely use this one to see what type of reactions I get. Very nice thinking.

Also recieved a copy a couple of minutes ago.
The manuscript reads easy and all is well explained, step by step.

Allthough the method is simple, it does the "trick". Simplicity works!
6 Variations to fit your style and likings. Each and every one very clever thinking.

Well done, Alex.
Forgive me any language mistakes.

The Gift is also the name of a Paul Brook book. Any chance you might change the title?

Cheers

I have received a review copy, and am looking forward to road-testing it over the weekend. It is a beautifully simple method - yet it will fool people. More to follow in a few days...

Hi Todd,

Yes, thank you for making me aware....

In this title

I put

"The Gift, a type of CAAN," ebook

Although looks the same, it is different, don't you think?

I can still change it, since I am still tweaking the rough copy.

It could be named: Dice CAAN

But I think I might leave The Gift, a type of CAAN, ebook......not sure yet....release details coming soon.

I just had a chance to sit down and read through Alex's "Gift". I have to agree with the posters above - a simple, clever approach to a classic effect. In addition to the original handling, several variations are provided. This is a well thought out effect and I enjoyed having the chance to review it. Thanks, Alex!

Todd,

It could be.

I will keep that in mind.

I might just change the name before its release.

Thanks

Hi all

Got sent this a few days ago,and ive finally got the chance to sit down and have a read, first impressions, this is a great effect, cleverly thought out and from what I can see in my mind would work really well.

The method behind this is fool proof and very deceptive, Simple but very deceptive which in my mind makes this a worker.

Great work Alex, hats off to you sir

All the best

I just read the Alex effect,
what I can say that it is very easy and deceptive at same time.

It requires just you concentrate on a good presentation,
because the effect is almost selfworking.

Well done Alex.

Bye,
Tommy.
It's a Miracle...
