Yes sir VOLITION has my highest recommendation. Use your business cards, no funky business, carry them with you and you will have a real fooler that can be performed using any theme.

And, at a more than fair price. My ultimate favorite new download!

John C, how does this compare with 'Free Will Of Order' by Jimmy Fingers?

Completely different scenario. I would almost say while there is some free will in this it's not what it's about really.

Lovely, Lovely! Thanks, John, for the hint and compliments to Joel! And I agree, especially V.2 is extremely nice.

Little addition, it is the way I do it (if you wear a jacket – and do not worry, if you do not own the script you can’t understand or use it…): Before the spectator will put his card (his first choice) in his pocket (do not tell him yet) ask him to write his name on the front side of his card (you will find enough justification to do so… and you have the total focus on that card!).

“Search” for a pen, both hands go simultaneously in your outer jacket pockets, your left hand does what has to be done in there, both hands come immediately in view again, apparently everything looks unchanged, and without any pause your right hand continues to “find” the pen in your inner left jacket pocket. Your left hand – still holding the two cards – helps the right hand to uncap the pen.

Try it in front of a mirror, I wish you could see it – it really flies by and looks so innocent and normal - fooled my wife with it, and she knows me and my “strategies” VERY well. Jan

Yes, an interesting take on the Free Will idea. It is something you will probably carry around with you. I sent Joel two variations so far.

Little addition after a few tests more: Tell the spectator in advance – even before he makes his first decision – that you will ask him to put that card in his pocket – after he will have done something more with this card… (signing it later). Then there is nothing to backtrack, spectators will have no clue at all providing you have done cleanly your sw---h, what I have found to be the easiest part Smile

The “idea” to announce ahead of time what to do with the first card came after listening to “well informed” people who are knowing strategies to tell people what to do after they have made a decision. I think you know what I mean. Jan

P.S.: I guess you can tell how much I do like Joel's working...

And I can relax Iain Smile))))

I'm truly appreciative to you all for writing up your thoughts and sharing ideas, really nice.
If anybody has any questions regarding Volition then please get in touch.

Greg, your money idea is just brilliant. Really strong and well layered too.

Jan, that is how I perform the effect also. The participant is well aware that they will be making decisions, being so open heightens the impossibility.

V2 is my favourite of the two effects in my booklet, the first version is lovely however I just like the simplicity of v2.

How does this compare to Mark Elsdon's Tri Impromptu? Mark's version has been the one that I've been using for a long time. I absolutely love it, but always willing to give something else a shot if it improves on anything.

No, Jan, no it doesn't. I still try though. You can only try. That's what my mother always says.
