Mike, in my opinion, telling spectator that you are going to extract his birthday, will completely ruin the performance. It will turn the effect into some sort of ''is this your card?" routine. The method of revealing birthday date, that is described in guide, is very natural (in fact, there are more than one).

Anyone who ordered from the second batch receiving updates? According to my last email update he should have received the books and aged them by now but I haven't gotten any further news. Bobby? Eagerly awaiting.

I'm sold - This sounds really good and after only a short while of email correspondence I can already see Boby being a very great guy putting a lot of effort and honesty into customer service. Compliments to you, Sir. Thanks!

OK I promised myself not to jump on every bandwagon on here but this sounded too good to pass up... after an anxious wait for mail from America to reach good ol' Germany my CV arrived and tried it out on myself... WOW it was spot on... some of the other birthdays around my date were not really hitting any spots but that just go to show how we influence our own perceptions...

I had a small issue with the translation of the instructions to a German audience but even when I got it wrong they turned to their own birthday and were blown away... talk about self worker... you could even leave it on your table for passers by in a psychic fair to thumb through before paying for a more in depth reading... great fun... the routines that come with it are just the tip of the iceberg...

Bobby asked for a review but it has really all been said except for another satisfied customer...

I ended up doing a spontaneous presentation of the C0dex for a magician friends mother in law last night.
The performance was just to get her to touch each relevant page and try to feel a connection, which she experienced as heat when she touched the pages. After the dirty work was done, we had her look her birthday and read the entry. She was amazed by how accurately it described her character and situation. Then my friend said that I had a special connection with the book as its owner. I then told her that the impressions I had received were that she was born late in summer, almost early autumn (I'm in the southern hemisphere, so it's backwards to you folks in the north). Then told her I thought she was born in February, which she was of course. Then I told her I thought it was early in Feb, but wasn't sure but had her hold the book and concentrate on the date. I then told her I thought it was the first week of Feb, around the 5th or 6th. Actually it was the 7th, I'd miscounted as I thought my mate was going to do the reveal initially. Anyhow the near miss if anything made it all the stronger. 

It was very impromptu, and I haven't done much with the Codex as I've had other materials I've been rehearsing prior to Halloween. So it is a testament to this effect, that it was so powerful even with a haphazard presentation done on the spur of the moment.

My friend, who was a professional magician for many years, said he had never seen such a strong reaction. I'm pretty sure he'll be buying a copy very soon.
All is perceived through the gate of the mind.

Could Voodini's 'Happy Birthday',work as a tie in with Codex V ?

From what I've read on another thread, Voodini's latest release uses playing cards (just what I read...don't have it) to obtain the birthdate.
If that is the case, why "muddy the waters?"

Stick to Codex. It sets the mood. The book is Spooky.

Not,trying to "muddy the waters!" Smile
Paul's thread,seems to have vanished in Spooky! So,could not read description!
I'm waiting for the last Codex(and all PDF's),and was not sure Happy Birthday,was done with cards!

In the "Latest and Greatest" thread, Paul indicated he believed his Happy Birthday was too similar to Peter Turner's Isabella's Star so he pulled it down from his website.
(That thread also noted playing cards were used in the routine.). I have Turner's Isabella's Star 2 and playing cards are used in one alternative handling (they are not necessary).

I will also say...the Codex is my preferred way to obtain the Star Sign / Birthday. I prefer Codex to Isabella's Star 2 (that statement alone would likely prompt death threats in the "Penny" forum).

I prefer the Codex because it is a beautiful piece (physical and performance). I see Isabella's Star 2 to be more of a mentalism effect. With the Codex, it can be used in a very "light manner" to obtain the birthday and/or star sign (to be used later however you prefer - like a mentalism effect) or...with a little performance, a little atmosphere, a very powerful, emotional bizarre performance.

Thank you for comparing the Codex and Isabella 2. I was wondering how they might be similar and different. I could not use the original Isabella because of language dependency. Isabella 2 solved that problem and the routine is great. Personally really like the idea and possibilities of the Codex, but language dependency makes it difficult to justify getting it.

Hello Everybody...!

I ordered a large Codex Cloth from Ray...to go along with my Codex. And I gotta tell you...it is absolutely fantastic. I am more than pleased with it. It will add a lot to the overall atomphere of my presentations...especially if I want to incorporate a pendulum. The large cloth has a crushed velvet back which really hilights the aged looking panel. I'm really glad I made this purchase...the cloth totally complements the Codex...even when the Codex is just sitting on the cloth.


Thank You Ray...Outstanding J-O-B...!

Continued Success to Us All,
Dr. Dan
