If anyone sucks at maths like I do and wants to get some practice in before the book arrives,

http://www.random.org/dice/?num=5

Sixes and repeated numbers are ignored, fives are also ignored for the months so in the case of the link above the dice rolls are

4, 6, 3, 6, 6. So 4 (8) plus 3 (4) = 12 (Dec).

Another roll 2, 1, 2, 5, 2. So 2 plus 1 plus 5 (16) = 19.

Does that make sense?

Opening the package with my copy of Codex V was like meeting an old friend, as I had read and re-read the PDF several times before it arrived. I was immediately struck by the excellent aged appearance...not too much or too little, but just the right amount for believability.

Discovering a spectator's exact date of birth surreptitiously is something of a holy grail for a mentalist or a cold reader. I've used different methods from Christian Chelman's Zodiac to Chris Hare's Birthday Detector and though all are very good, Bobby Hasbun's codex V is my new personal favorite. He has taken an old method and made its workings virtually invisible as well as interesting to the spectator.

There are so many possibilities in its use. Some are dark while others involve only a simple revelation. I want to present it as an interesting old book and have them go through the process, read and comment on the fortunes presented and then put it away and only then take out the cards and begin a reading. I can do the birthdate reveal as a finale to the read long after the book has been hidden away and any garden path forgotten.

I still love my beautiful aged Zodiac Chart screen-printed on canvas, but I no longer have to fish for the date or try to read marked cards to get the date. (I've tried so many marked decks but all are difficult to read and I much prefer readings by candlelight anyway).

Do I really need my Zodiac Chart anymore? Certainly not to find the birthdate, but its use adds much charm and combined with Codex V enhances the presentation for the sitter and I can let them shuffle the cards and lay them out themselves!

But this is just my personal method and each user will have his personal reasons for loving this book's straightforward and innocent approach to achieving its end. However you choose to use it (and there are so many suggestions in the PDF) it is truly a utility item and in my work will see much use!

This is another one of those items you wish you had exclusively to yourself, but since Bobby Hasbun has decided to release it I can only say buy it while it is still available.

Mine arrived too today.

Its wonderful!

I won't go into detail as everyone else has praised it - this one has tons of potential.... as it can be used anywhere pretty much (well maybe not underwater...maybe)

Andre and Dr Spektor: thank you both so much for the kind words. I'm so happy that you guys enjoy the book as much as I do!

The books are now out of stock! The first 50 have been sold. If you're interested in buying a copy, reserve yours right away at http://www.codex-arcana.com before they sell out! I'm having the next 25 made as of two days ago. They should be in my hands and ready to age in 8-12 days.

Durn it, I wasn't going to break down and buy it, but I have. Looking forward to receiving it. (And I understand they are being prepared, so, no rush.)

I'm glad you decided to when you did; they're going fast! I will keep you updated on the status of your order (this applies to all pre-orderers).

Glad I got in on the first batch; should be shipping soon! This was a total impulse buy for me (read this thread once and decided I had to have it), but looks to be a real worker. Thanks Bobby, and everyone who gave early reviews!
