"Some of you" - that'll be me, then. I have no doubt that the prediction slip packs a punch and rounds off the routine beautifully. I just know that if I saw (or participated in) this effect without prior knowledge, I would initially be astonished. But I would run it through in my mind and realise that the prediction adds nothing to the colour match. Some lay people think over great effects that they have seen and let the magic grow to something even greater in their mind and memory. (Killer Elite did this to me for years!)
Clearly I am alone here, so I will write no more about it (apart from thanking any others whom can intellectualise my point of view) and be grateful for freedom of speech and the respect that we give one another.
Bottom line - buy this and amaze others!

I did this last night using my aleph wallet for the s***** of the e********. it went great. Just the four envelopes on the table at the finish. My mate who knows about magic was baffled to say the least.
I use the very small pay envelopes.

No one is disrespecting you, we are simply exercising our freedom of speech to to post our thoughts in relation to what you say. Just as you post your thoughts in relation to what we say, hence the meaning of a forum. just as I have been told and I am sure others here have been told, take a breather and try to enjoy the Café. it's meant for everybody to share their opinions.

Now if someone would have told you to blatantly shut up, then I would say you were disrespected.

I do appreciate everyone's feedback on this trick, it helps my effects evolve. Thanks to some comments about the prediction, I have came up with a NEW version of Blindsight outdone that has an entirely different ending with no multiple outs and will address any issues that some of you may have with the final prediction. This is a NEW ending that has never been used in blindsight and will expand the person's guessing to five envelopes. This new ending will stun everyone and will appear to be so impossible it will boggle the mind. This new version will be called "Picture Perfect" This new version will not use colored cards and will take an approach to the effect I have not done before. Thanks for your feedback as it has helped me create an even NEWER method and one I think is stronger than the other blindsights. That doesn't mean not do blindsight outdone, continue to do it. I just have a bigger surprise on the horizon. I have talked with some people at Murphy's about this new approach and they love it, but this still a few months down the road. I need to test this in REAL world conditions before it is released.

This new version will be performed by me STAGE SIZE at the East Coast Mind Jam. I will be curious to see the reactions of other mentalists when it debuts. Sorry not going to be in my lecture, just part of the stage show.

Wow!

What an announcement!

"Picture Perfect" sounds like a winner!
Jack Straw from Wichita, cut his buddy down
And dug for him a shallow grave, and laid his body down
Half a mile from Tucson, by the morning light
One man gone and another to go, my old buddy you're moving much too slow
We can share the women, we can share the wine

Jan, There won't be a Picture Perfect Outdone...if something is perfect, it can't be outdone. LOL

Thanks, RNK - you are ever so sweet. I genuinely meant that I was "grateful for freedom of speech and the respect that we give one another". It was not a slur.

Devin, I really like Poker Tells a lot and I like the core of Blindsight Outdone.
Wouldnt it be good starting to offer a addendum to your supporters instead of selling a new Blindsight (under a new name)?
Maybe I have to learn that nobody is as generous in this regard as Elliott Bresler.
It just looks strange to me advertising a new Blindsight here... now... as if you really try to milk it out...
Much movies should have remain a trilogy.

I would offer an addendum, if it were the same thing with colored cards. This is something new and does not used color cards, it will require special picture cards that you will not have and will be expensive for me to produce. It will involve 5 cards instead of four. Not trying to milk anything. This is a new effect with a different ending and will not be called Blindsight. Just saying that the feedback led me to create a new effect. If this were just an addedumn I would update the directions, but such is not the case. Still it will be several months before this new effect is released.

ArtIn, just look at the many versions of Four Told...one better than the one before while even the first one was labeled "closest thing to mindreading".
Funny, he?
What we learn here: obviously there is indeed a maximization of closest or perfect or outdone.
:D

I got a load of small stamp envelopes off ebay a while ago. They fit in my wallet.

I loved the first 'blindsight', but this is even better! Thanks Devin.

I checked all of my local office supply stores and none had #5 envelopes, so I went to #7.

Worked great when practicing on the family but they ended up asking about the "extra" envelops on the table.

I need to work on finding a misdirection for this.

There are extra envelopes on the table with the original Blindsight too. They just appear to be empty envelopes.

As far as I'm aware you can use any size envelope if you wish, I don't use the envelopes that devin says to use in blinsight outdone.
