I'm looking for presentation angles for the trilogy card trick. Any thoughts or ideas would be appreciated. I'm brainstorming the idea of the theme of presenting the effect as an attempt at a mental triple play, trifecta, or the like, tying to heighten the effect as not just one successful mind link, but the ultimate hat trick of mentalist.

Can't tell if you're hinting about this, but one train of thought would be to get rid of the numbers. What would be more impactful to spectators? Names, places, emotions, psych forces, memories. There is a near endless string of possibilities. Look at your own performance and figure out what type of presentation would provide the best fit and move on from there.

Probably best asking in the card trick section

This is a slightly different effect, but it uses the same methodology and is even more mental than trilogy

Several years ago I created a routine using the same method that was eventually used for the Trilogy card deck that came out. Card Shark later published my routine in their ebook (available for free) from their web site. The name of the routine is titled "My Favorite Celebrity". Check it out... you might like it. Cheers!

Suggestion: Firstly don't present it as a card trick! (If you are then the magician's section would be a better place to ask)

I agree it should be a mentalism presentation only. My theme idea is that there are three predictions/coincidences with the justification for the numbers being written on the back of he cards to be tied in with numerology.
