To bad if it's not the real Pi sequence. I remembered the first hundred digits of Pi in under an hour. It's so aesy and still get amazing reactions.

Just used the journey method with my own house as a familiar location.
Easy as pi Smile


Niels,

Don't mind the jealous ones. How did you remember them? Did you use some method to make it easier, or was it just wrote memory?

I ask because he can create a custom book. Perhaps the first page could be the real PI and the rest could be the "method". that would make the routine even more powerful. You could have someone pull up PI on their calculator to verify the first several numbers and then go forward with the routine.

:-) KJ, I don't mind if anyone is jealous. That wasn't my intesion when I wrote it.

I just don't see the point in buying this effect, although it's still a great effect, when you can get the same effect just from memory with the real pi sequence.
There is a video where memory champion Dominic O'Brien explains his simple method. It's in this video at 16min.18sec

let me know how it went!

And sorry for my bad english. It's not my native language ;-).

And talking about a showoff, take a look in the vid how Dominic O'Brien remembers a random 50 digit number just by hearing it once. Smile

I purchased the Osterlind Stack version, as I’m very familiar with it and have used it on numerous occasions but after further review and countless hours of studying and head scratching, I must now concede that the Stackless version is probably what I should have purchased. Now this brings me to my dilemma, is there anyone who would like to trade their Stackless version book for my Osterlind version book? I haven’t used the book and it’s in pristine condition. Any takers, please feel free to contact me, I’m willing to send my book first and once you receive it you can send me yours, any takers?

Thank You

KJ that's completely unnecessary and doesn't make the effect stronger it just falls into the category of over proving. The first page is already the real decimals of pi and the rest of the book is bullet proof as long as you don't leave it in their hands after the effect. You can also pick up a copy of the genuine book if you want to leave it lying around after the show.

As far as really memorising 100 or so digits, using the phonetic system you should be able to get 100 digits under your belt within 20 minutes. I'm sure Harry Lorraine would do it in 5.

Thanks for sharing. I am really liking the idea of this book. I think you are right. I don't see anyone questioning whether the book really is PI.

The point is it's not the same effect, memorising the first 100 digits of pi is not the same effect as memorising the first 10,000 decimals of pi. By all means buy the genuine book from Amazon and attempt to reproduce this effect using memory alone with the full real sequence.

The value here is not merely in the demonstration of memorising a lot of numbers it is in the structure of the routine with each phase being more impressive and more difficult as well as being able to add some relevance by locating the spectators birthday in pi. This isn't simply reciting 3.14195.......... etc for 100 or so digits.

First they give you a page number and you tell them the first line of that page. Then they open to any page and give you 5 consecutive digits from anywhere on that page and you identify where they are in pi and continue from that point the next 70-90 digits with no repeating sequence or discernible pattern, you could even go backwards if you choose, or if you want to be really flash you could go forward 40 or so digits and back 40 or so. Finally they tell you their birthday and you tell them the page number, the line and even the position within the line that their birthday falls.

So that's the point of buying this effect, you get a full three phase entertaining routine for a fraction of the effort required to learn even the first 100 digits of pi.

Same with me, still struggling on and off with the second phase but this video pushes me to grab the book again and start practicing.

Vincent, unbelievable performance, especially the second face!
Great effect!

This looks good! I recently met a teenager who could legitimately name 30 decimals of Pi. I can name 1 decimal legitimately.

Btw, if anyone is reading this has not checked out Vincent's book test, do so.
Babel is another fantastic release.
His stuff takes some (fun) work, and worth all of it.
