A very belated response to say a huge thank you to Steve for chatting behind the scenes on TAC before buying it - I can happily confirm that it works great in Australia (particularly the gender neutral option, but also the UK version with some of the helpful suggestions in the extensive document.) It's fiendishly clever, and I've had some great responses so far! Thanks again for your help, Steve. Other Australians should feel enthused to grab a copy!

Hi All,

For those of you who may be interested in a different way to present the words for the "gender neutral" version, I have just placed "Word Search Detective" on sale for $10.00. Please note that "Word Search Detective" does NOT include instructions for "Thought Association Card." You can read a more thorough description here:

http://yachanin.net/Yachanin_Magic/WordSearchBook2.htm

It is available through lulu.com

Regards, Steve

I received the PDF the same day, I can say it delivers everything the others in the thread posted. I am consistently amazed when reading items like this at how little I know about mentalism. This document is well worth the purchase price!

I have been going back to this since doing Zoom shows, and my opinion has not changed. This is a wonderful effect.

Hi Chaz93,

I'm so glad you are still finding value in TAC after all these years. Do you show the card via "share screen" or just hold it in front of your camera?

Just ordered this from Steve and also the word search book from Lulu. Looking forward to having a ‘play’ with this.

Hi corindaman,

Make sure to stop back after you've had a chance to take TAC out for a spin and let us know some of your experiences with it.

Hi Steve,
Sorry for late response I don't check the Café much these days.

I have created a sideshow scene in OBS that displays the words from the gender neutral list which scrolls during the pre-show countdown. Comes on screen 5 minutes before the show officially starts and asks everyone to choose a word from the ones scrolling by. Then after my opener I perform T.A.C as a way to "warm up".

Hope you're doing well!

Hi Chaz93,

I've seen some very clever innovations as more and more shows have had to adapt to streaming because of the pandemic. Great idea!

I just bought this directly from Steve - yesterday!!

It would be interesting to hear Café member's thoughts on the use of the "Word Search Detective" booklet, versus a card.

I understand that a card offers the portability of being used as part of an EDC, but the booklet seems to add to the "impossibility" of the effect.

Especially keen to hear your views Steve.

Hi John,

My original thought was that the "Word Search Detective" book would provide a more visual means of selecting the words for parlor/stage. It cannot bear long, intense scrutiny by your volunteers, as the words are repeated at some point (but I never let my volunteers handle the book for longer than it takes them to select their words and then I set the book aside).

I, personally, do not have the book as part of my EDC. The card, on the other hand, is always in my wallet Smile

Thanks Steve - I appreciate your thoughts. It looks like the book will suit a small audience setting and the card as an EDC item.

p.s. I like the design of the test card - it looks great.

I just received my copy of “Word Search Detective” from Lulu today and it looks great.

It is such an authentic looking puzzle book. I can see why it shouldn’t be left with a spectator for close examination, but as was mentioned by Steve above, the plan is to use it for the intended purpose only, then put it away (effects case, jacket pocket, etc - casually remove it from view).

I feel now that I have 2 good versions of the same effect - one for EDC impromptu and the other a set routine for a small audience.

Having now reviewed the entire thread again, I have a question. I am keen to explore the Real Thing book test, incorporating TAC. Are the notes included in the Supplement 2 of TAC all I need to get going with that book test, or do to purchase Atlas’s effect as well?

Hi John,

You would need to purchase Atlas's effect as well (including the book). Smile

Regards, Steve

P.S. - Thanks for the kind words regarding the "Word Search Detective" book.
