There is no need for the Envelope. Just take a piece of the Gimmick Material and stick it (With repositional Glue) to the Palm of your hand and mime how they should put the hand on the Card. While you are showing them what to do, you get the Information and there is no suspicion.

Try it out, works like a Charm. Interesting, that this Method was not shown on the Download.


This exact method was used as just the starting point in one of the chapters in Café member Chris Matthewson's incredibly in-depth trilogy on the subject, published six years ago. It is touched upon (pardon the pun) in his first book, but really extended in an unbelievable routine in his second book. The third book has the greatest idea I've seen about how to make this practical and easy.

(***Whispering: Not that anyone here would care, but a variation of the routine may be the greatest "pick-up" trick of all time!***)

As said previously:

I have the Steam trilogy published 5-6 years ago. The books themselves are outstanding and I strongly suspect Steam 2.0 is something discussed in great detail with almost infinite variations in the trilogy. I don't know if the books are still available, but as I said Matthewson is still a member of the Café and can be contacted. I've used many ideas from the trilogy and recommend them without reservation as containing some of the best information retrieval methods in the business!

For those of you in the United States, here's a link for replacing the marking pen with the exact same one which is included in the kit: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0000AQ......_o00_s00


I actually ordered one of these a while ago, not for steam but just for marking things.

Half of them were already dried out when they got here and the other half ran out of ink really quick.

You could get them from another source so that they don't dry out.

That's terrible. I've already ordered them, so I'll check them when they arrive, and will report back...

Yes, however many of the reviews on amazon saying they had no problems whatsoever but the more recent ones in 2015/16 are saying they aren't good. Maybe mine was just a one off. I find these the best, like Dominic Reyes suggested

I've had some time now with steam 2.0. I think it's a great buy! Rasmus generously offered a great idea. I did this last night and I love it this way. Give Cole at Hocus-Pocus a call!

Based on the reviews, many have said that they are dried out when they come, same happened with me. I wouldn't recommend these....m

Janet is currently on vacation but wanted me to let you all know that if you don't want to spend the time sourcing your own materials etc. For your convenience, refills will be available this month, including pens, pads, envelopes, card stock etc. Will let everyone know pricing and how many come in each refill as soon as I know. Thanks.

Did anyone mention that if the paper on which the spectator writes bleeds through a little, that's the best reason to "cover it up" ? Smile

Ha!! This is an excellent suggestion!! I had ordered 2 diff boxes of blank business cards which arrived today. The thicker ones did not work at all, but the thinner ones work GREAT, though there is an almost imperceptible bleed through. I was thinking the money was wasted, but your suggestion is brilliant!! It lends even more credibility to the envelope cover, and focuses the attention even more on the card, less on the envelope.

I would love to know where to get bulk cards that mimic the included cards, or even what the card stock is called so I can hunt some down, but until there are refills available, I can use these, thanks for a great suggestion!
