In the video he asks her to cover the card with an envelope then her hand.

Everything's examinable and nothing to ditch is intriguing


Not 100% but you then write on the envelope that was used to cover the card.

Looks great, but hate refills
"The New York Papers," Mark Twain once said,"have long known that no large question is ever really settled until I have been consulted; it is the way they feel about it, and they show it by always sending to me when they get uneasy. "

that's what I thought, so some audience management required.

From the ad it appears you get Special blank business card stock for 100 performances that stay completely blank on the back after writing
Gimmick that allows you to adapt to your own Sharpie
It appears you must lay a business card on top of the prediction than take it to make your written prediction.
True you are not touching the spectators prediction, but your taking something away that is right on top of it?
Refills are a pain, cool idea.

Would seem a bit unnatural to me to use a card for cover and then take it to make your own prediction. You don't see that part in the video, so who knows what's the solution to this.

My order is in...

Only question I have is with refills: do any dealers know whether the refills will be easy to source online rather than through dealers?

I also have The Ghost and the special something was relatively easy to source.

Appreciate any insight anyone can provide to assist.

Thanks,

Elliot

I ordered this from Paul at hocus-pocus. I have the original wanted to see what they did with the pen.

This sounds great. But it is curious that they would leave the basic handling out of the description and so called complete performance video. If it's covering the writing with a business card/envelope and then taking that card back that's dramatically different, and honestly far less clean than what's described. Performance videos can be tricky but this is different than a small move that's covered by misdirection. By the comments, this is something that's visibly and overtly part of the routine. So they should show it, no?

Yes, and that's the reason why I haven't pushed the buy button yet.

If the spectator's card needs to be covered with another card to retrieve the info before the performer writes the prediction than this indeed is misleading.
If it's something that the spectator indeed sees in the routine than in my opinion the only reason to omit it from the "Full Performance" video is to fool the potential customer that would want to buy it based what is seen. Just my 2 cents.

This looks fantastic! I'll be picking it up for sure (side note does anyone else find it funny that literally half this thread is people telling us where to buy it from? Pretty sure we know by now)

I don't do a lot of mentalism but this would fit perfectly with the few pieces I do

All you say is quite correct.

They didn't do anything with the pen - there is nothing to do with the pen except to make certain it works. Done.

The only reason I would even consider this is for the routines.

I will say that I hope Ali makes a few $$$ from this as Alakazam's knock-off Ghost was a little disappointing as it had a reverse image. This should have a positive image.

If this is like the original you can source your own very easily - no need for refills.

I started a topic about Steam in Inner Thoughts back in 2010, because it is a great tool.
It seems now that Steam it has been reborn, but which is the difference?
A new handling?
A different size of the paper?
Something about the Sharpie? (that will be a great improvement!)
And they are skipping a very important part in the description.
The owners of Steam will understand me.
I would like to have more information.
