Not personally familiar with Sudo Nimh, is there a particular routine that is prop-less, really great, or is it a majority of their stuff? Thanks!

Yes this version is called Verbalist. A wonderful
effect for two people.Its like TH on steroids.
I use it a lot.

I like the premise of Verbalist but have not used it yet, the first 2 (Veritas, Vox?) I use quite a bit. I still use a variation of Banacheks for 2 people just because it is so deep in my brain. I don't do stage so I don't know that I would use the 4th, though I haven't really read that section in-depth so maybe.

I'd have to say that my current propless favourite is still 50:50 Fantasia by Iain Rowland. I have been playing around with it for months now and I still love it. What I am doing with it now is significantly different than what it started out being. But I love that it can be performed anywhere anytime and still gets that slack jawed "holy crap" look at the end. A remarkable effect. It's taught me a lot about everything from volunteer management to presentation.

I use a variation of the 4th as my opener for my stage show and for me it's worth the price. Verbalist I use in casual performances along with TH and Strange Oblique. TH, then Verbalist, then Strange Oblique is effectively a complete impromptu act. I use my star sign stacking that can be found in Harpacrown during Verbalist so in that phase I reveal both peoples star sign, who is lying, who is telling the truth and where the coin is. During Strange Oblique I will throw in some cold reading.

Ah while I think of it another great effect in this category is Rock Paper Lies by Jay DiBase.

Thank you so much, rev, Bowers, Dreda, David and Mark for all your recommendations and thoughts.
I'm also led to believe there is a release by a certain Mr Chandaue that may be worth a look!

Not much in the way of propless in my book it's mostly practical sure fire material that relies on old fashioned principles but it's definitely worth a look.

I think propless is best when used as seasoning rather than the main dish, so I'll definitely have to have a look at Harpacrown.

Agreed.
I think this beautiful. It can't get more direct then this and the presentation that comes with it is excellent.

I've brought up 50:50 Fantasia as a propless routine in several threads... Glad we agree! It is excellent, a true master class in creating huge entertainment entirely through language and timing.

I'm going to throw "Reverie" by Ottoemezzo (Vlad) into the mix !

My best recent propless episode involves a combination of reddevil's invisible gemini with a slightly modified version of Seamus Maguire's Calibration.

I agree with Second. Operation Gemini is a wonderful tool if you're into puzzle solving approaches. Completely propless.

I can't recommend Strange Oblique by Mark Elsdon or anything by Frase Parker (I got ouija and rose). These were the worst purchases I did in 16 years.
It's always better to check the reviews before...

Imbalance by Atlas Brookings is also a very nice propless murder mystery (the best imo) and Jermay's last DVD set have some updates on Touching on Hoy.
