I know that I'm missing something here. In addition to the gimmicked book, is the 'un-gimmicked' one provided when you purchase the effect? If not, can someone provide me with the link on Amazon? I cannot find it, searching either for "Pi" or "Vincent Hedan." Thanks!

Actually, the ungimmicked one was designed only as a convincer, in case someone wants to check on the internet that the book you used really exists. In the routine, the "gimmicked" book is never perceived as such so no switch is needed Smile

Thanks Smile

Thanks a million!
Smile I've just ordered Mnemonica by Juan Tamariz. Will see how I do with that before I decide whether to order the stackless version of this effect.

Dear Pi Tester users,
I am happy to announce that Pi Tester 1.4.1 is available in your app updates.
It adds a new « spoken » mode in all 4 exercices.
A small bug still remains : If you press « +1 number » on exercice 2 while on spoken mode, it becomes unreadable. Will correct that on the next update.

Jerome, you should be canonized (?!)
I love this.
Endless thanks Smile

I just noticed I've used my book so much pages are (finally) falling out.
No prob of course. The book is well made, I just abused it by carrying it in my pocket.
I was about to add a replacement to an order from Penguin, but they don't seem to have a way to specify stack selection(?)

Odds are this is user error here :/

I think you need to place an order through Vincent Hedan. ;-)

I completely understand why Jerome has only release an iPhone version of the app.

However, I hope that someone will eventually create an Android version of the app.

That's what I did the first time.
And yup, gonna go direct again I guess.
I wonder how Penguin is handling this.
I may have missed something though, being on my phone.

...got a few odd looks today...reading a book of numbers waiting on line.
If they only knew I still count on my fingers and toes.
Sigh

I don't know this stack but if someone sends me his deck order then I could test it and see if it works for the effect.

They don't. There are about 20 different versions of my effect, one for each stack/system/language I designed, so it would be complicated for magic shops to manage stocks for such a variety. Magic shops carry the English stackless version, and I manage all the other versions on my website. Free shipping to anywhere, so no worries there Smile

Jerome, I've been using this a bunch.
So...I'm gonna keep annoying you with thanks Smile
Hope anyone using it does the same.
Had I paid for this, I'd be on here raving just the same.
Such a cool thing you did here.
Rare, and appreciated.

I love this effect.
It's quite some mental work, but it will be worth it, I'm sure.
Vincent really has done an amazing job with this book. Smile

One question though concerning the blocking on stage:

Do you guys hand the book out into the audience or do you prefer to have a participant on stage?

I played with both. Now I prefer to have the participant sitting a couple of meters off my side (I'm also sitting) because it allows me to alternate between talking to him/her and addressing the audience, giving me more staging opportunities. Also, if the participant is on stage, the audience can better see his/her reactions and it amplifies the effect for everyone. Finally, although I've never had to intervene, if needed I can get closer to the participant faster to adjust his/her behaviour. But again, I never have had to do that Smile

Hi All lover's of Pi

I attended The Event Mentalism day last weekend and Vincent was lecturing so he dis this effect, the first time I had seen it or even heard about it and I thought WoW that's different to the usual booktest.
Being I never go to these conventions to buy anything only to get myself tips and workable routines I can add to my various sets when I saw this I thought - Bugger I fancy that but just couldn't afford it there and then.

So I spoke with Vincent that evening and he kindly sorted me out - this was in the early hours of the morning in all honesty.

Since receiving the link to the instructions my head is aching from trying to memorise all the information and my family are bored with hearing the automated voice speak on the app 14454 lol

I look forward to receiving the physical book soon thanks to Vincent and going straight out and perform it.

My sincere thanks to Vincent and Jerome Damien for their assistance so far, I will foĺlow up with a performance reaction review when I have been out and worked it.

Many thanks again
Dr Rob
