I'm debating between Hotel and Half Track but the descriptions are very sparse. I know Name & Place and would like to know what the differences/improvements are. As for Half Track, the description really tells me nothing about the effect. Christopher, can you elaborate please?


In regards to Hotel, it is a "Name and Place" style routine that works with just a couple of business cards, a pen and NO SWITCHES.

Here is a full description of Half Track:
The Effect:
As you read the following description, consider how impossible lay people would find this effect.
The mind reader (M) gives each of two participants (P1 & P2) half a deck of cards and asks them to shuffle their packs. M turns his back and asks each P to select any ten cards. They are encouraged to take them from the top, center or bottom of their shuffled packs.
The participants are directed to hold their ten cards like an oversized poker hand and select one to hold face down against their chests. The two packets of nine remaining cards are tabled face down. M explains he wants this to be even more challenging so the two P are to slip their memorized card into the other P’s tabled 9-card pack. The Ps pick up their individual packs and mix them. Finally, P1 hands her pack to P2 who is free to place it on top of or underneath his own ten cards. M now turns around to face the Ps and takes the pack of twenty cards.

Each P is invited to hold out a hand palm up and visualize their chosen card. M takes the top card and passes it over each palm and then drops it face down on the table between P’s hands. He continues this until he pauses holding a card over one of the palms (say P2’s) then places the card face down onto the palm and says, “Maybe.”
M continues removing single cards and waving them over P1’s palm until deciding to drop one onto her palm as well. M passes his own palm over both cards and announces that something is not right. He remembers that the two cards were exchanged at the start and switches them. Finally, both P are asked to name their cards for the first time. The cards are turned over for a perfect ending.

Wanted to publicly thank Christopher for his generosity - I too picked up "Hotel" as a free download. It's a nice variation on the (now) classic plot especially well suited for more intimate walk-around performance environments.

There were a few hiccups along the way to get the download but Derek (the site's developer I believe) was AMAZINGLY responsive and extremely helpful. Like anything new there are some kinks to smooth out - but Derek and Christopher seem to be working hard to that end.

I also picked up another "something" from Christopher that should be arriving in UT tomorrow - I'm VERY excited about it!

Best,

Drew

Thank you, Christopher for the kind offer. I look forward to checking out Hotel.

To the people here who have already consumed Hotel or Half-Track, I'm sure Christopher would appreciate it if you posted a review on his website to help encourage future sales.

Drew: We are indeed working hard to smooth out the remaining wrinkles on the site. I want to say that we have been overwhelmed by the number of people who have taken us up on the free download offer. All good things must come to an end, however and that includes this offer. Come September 30th, 2016 it will be over in its current form. We will be adding more downloads, and making free ones available with purchases, in the not too distant future

All the best,

Christopher

I got the effect "Overkill" and I really like it, it is well thought out and a very entertaining routine.

It has been pointed out to me that two of the instant download effects are missing small files that should have been included. These are Half Track and Overkill; if you have these, I urge you to log in on my site and download the extra files. Cheers.

I don't know what hours you are on [time zone]?

But the confirmation email [with links to download] do you respond to that email address [?]

As I got the hotel, but when I tried to download it, it failed three times, it didn't say anying buy 'failed' - I think it was my computer having too little hard drive space on the c: drive

I fixed that

Then it says I had no more downloads.... I blew the downloads in a minute after getting the files

Hmm, anyway to have another chance, so I can actually download the files this time [?]

As I was really looking forward to this

Thanks

Duster: I am on the west coast of Canada. I respond to EVERY email, PM or pidgin I get. This forum is probably not the best place to get into specific details of your order so please PM me or use the contact form on my site and provide your order number and I will get you sorted out. Cheers.

We have had a fantastic response to the free download offer. That offer ended this morning but we will be making other offers that include free downloads in the near future. Cheers, all.
