Merchant of Magic plan to be stocking the refills in the UK, as soon as they are released. They will also post updates on their newsletter for Steam 2.0 as soon as an ETA is published.

Hope this helps

Dominic, also as well as the refill - are you going to stock the "special" pen too? I have googled for the same type- and can't believe the price!! -



Have a look at the Bic 2000 permanent marker pen you can get pack of 10 for about £7.

Its bigger pen but personally don't find that a problem..

Hope that helps.



Thanks for the info Peter ;-)

My spectators felt something was 'odd' when I took back the envelope to write on it. So, I use a card box now and have the 'business card' in with the playing cards. I can take out the cards and show the spec that there is a blank business card mixed in with them. I explain that it's been in the card box with the cards all night... and go on to talk about sympathetic magic....
I have them write the name of a playing card on the card, put it face down and they cover it with the card box. A little more talk about the 'sympathy' between the cards and the specs written 'target'... then I pick up the card box to get out my prediction.

This has been very effective and fooling. Only drawback to this little routine is to work well it has to be a playing card that you ask the spec to think of and write. Rather than just anything.


If you want to use playing cards (why not?) you should get rid of things which are superfluous and draw attention where you don't want to have it. A business card has no reason (at least you do not explain any believable one!) to be between the playing cards.
Why don't you introduce a deck of cards to illustrate the 52 possibilities somebody can think of? Spread the cards, put them back in the box. Then you have introduced an ordinary thing. Let somebody think of any playing card that comes to his mind. Offer him to change his mental choice. Only then (and you will have and give a reason!) put your business card on the table... Ask him to write down the card he is thinking of... for later prove, so that he now can't change his mind anymore a. s. o. Put the case on the card... Repeat what happened, that he could have changed his mind...(time delay)... do whatever you want, but then take the box, withdraw the cards and remove one card, put it face down on the table, ask him which card he finally settled on (even do not talk about your business card anymore!), turn the card over - forget about the business card, he knows what he wrote, and if other people want to see it let them do whatever they like to do without becoming part of this part of the "game". Please take my advice or at least rethink what you were planing to do. Jan

Sorry I don't agree

Unless you know how steam works nothing is exposed

If anything you have made the situation worse by putting attention to the posts

The post exposing the method was deleted so you don't know what you're talking about mate. Even the poster asked for it to be deleted and everything ok

Can Steam 2.0 be used in conjunction with a Jerry O'Connell + wallet?

You can literally use it with anything that is opaque and acts as a surface.

Yes Karl. You put something over the top of it, nobody suspects a thing and the dirty work is done.

Do you need to put a magazine, for example, on top of the wallet, or will it work in the normal manner, that is, according to convention?

As for the price - do we think it is overpriced? Or is it a steal?

I heard it leaves an impression that isn't very impressive to other magicians

My favorite so far has been turning the fortune teller fish pack into the imp device and eliminating the need for the envelope.
Love the jokes but I think we should leave those in the other thread.

All this apprehension towards the envelope, is it that magicians and hobbyists are the ones trying to use this mostly? Or are people really that truly terrible at figuring out how to present a routine?

How are people perfectly ok with doing wallet peeks where some people in the audience will clearly remember that you basically did handle the card/billet or even a CT. A CT is terrible if you can't justify taking back the billet to perform a CT in the first place. I mean, for goodness sakes, there's a ton of excellent writing on the topics of billet work and CTs, much of the writings goes into explaining how to justify your actions. If you make a big deal out of it, they will make a big deal out of it.

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 the 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.

A wallet peak is quite different from taking back an envelope from someone. Although wallet peaks are a bit unnnatural, you are putting their card into what the audience think is a sealed wallet so it is all good in their mind but the justification for taking back the envelope is weak IMO
But each to their own
