This is devilishly sneaky. Then again, that is what we've come to expect from Sudo. Smile He has extended the marvelous Maven effect and added a little known old principle to give extra impact to the ending. He also gives an excellent alternative handling that would be well suited for close up. Essentially it is a "propless method" that could be done completely impromptu if the right situation presented itself.

The thing I love about his thinking is that it is for the worker. No pipe dreams here or effects with a thousand questions before you get the pay off.

Overall another winner. It comes with a high recommendation from me whatever price tag is attached to this.

Even though I'd told him I already had too much on my hands, Sudo shared this with me, and I don't regret it!

Simple, effective, well structured... There isn't much I can write that hasn't already:
- extension on Max Maven's Korutsuke. Not mere icing on the cake, no, a real new layer Smile
- a simple way of discovering a participant's choice (known method, perfectly in tune with the theme, simple, effective)
- and a suggestion for a method that's known and old, but cleverly adapted, and I would even say, extended.

Very nice piece of work, clever and sturdy. Smile Smile

MAx Maven's approach isn't a lie detector one! Mine (which of course you don't know Smile ) isn't either... Derren Brown's is. Does your remark mean most performer you think of just follow D.B.?

The way I usually do Korutsuke is in a three-step curve, that routine being the first: I feel/read between two "options" (black or white), like the longs and shorts of the Morse code. From the telepgraph I go to the telephone (reading words) then to photography (DD) or to films (a scene from a book or a movie).

There are other approaches then PNL and body language Smile

Thank you for all the wonderful comments. I wish I could share the reasons for why I do things this way, but the Café isn't the right place for that kind of sobering discussion.

As for my inbox, like everybody, I have a few saved messages. But here's the problem: when I send out a pdf or reply to somebody, that is still in my 'sentbox' and counts towards the limit of 60. Now if I send out a bunch of replies and then those people don't visit right away and retrieve them, my box fills up and they just sit there until they come and get them. What's worse is that the links in those replies expire automatically after a period of time. And then I get further messages saying "dude the file isn't available" from those same people I've already replied to, and then I have to do it all over again. Very frustrating.

So long story short: patience. I am on here several times a day and do my best to get to everybody as best as I can, but sometimes there's nothing I can do until people retrieve their messages so I can clear them.

Now there is a REAL buddy.

If you're anxious, I'll upload it to the site. I very much appreciate that about you.

You know I will always kick you the odd freebie here and there too, right?. Smile

For those people who want to support my work or are just anxious, it is now available on my site. I will be sending out a few more copies, but not for much longer folks.

And to those who purchase this: Thank-you for your support. It is GREATLY appreciated. Some people seem to think I make a lot of money doing this - nothing could be further from the truth....

Thanks again. Smile

This is a great routine. It has several factors that I highly value. It is low-tech (I don't object to special gadgets, but I prefer routines that don't demand them). The props can be carried in your pocket (which is a great benefit, as you could actually do this in informal gatherings if you wanted to). The props are cheap to put together (again, I don't object to special props, but I only have so much cash and if I spend a lot on something, I am less likely to risk loss or damage).

Thank you, Sudo, for your generosity. I used to love free toys in the cereal and this is even better than the time I got the toy car. And neck-and-neck with the see-behind spy sunglasses (which I still have, actually - with the Post Raisin Bran logo on them!)

I have to say that I really like this as well. And I really think it opens up the use of Max's classic routine to be able to add all kinds of new presentation opportunities (readings) and you can actually use the fact that the person is choosing different colors to collect all kinds of different information (star sign elements among others) as a bonus of just performing the basic routine. Creative people could really put this routine to work! Glad to see Sudo is sharing his knack for simplicity with us.

Hi everyone,
I would also like to congratulate Sudo on this effect. When reading this manuscript it starts out at the basics and you follow along nodding yes, I know that, yes fine. Then when he continues you really appreciate his twist on the classics.

But it just keeps getting better and I could not help smile very widely when I finished reading. I jumped up, grabbed 5 random objects and startet to test if this really works that simple and bingo.

His last propless version is a genius idea. Congrats Sudo!

Cheers
Stefan

Kurotsuke has always fascinated me because it had a theatrical look to it and some mysterious props and there are reasons why it is a classic of magic. But it also seemed sort of boring after all was said and done.

Sudosuke takes the boring out the effect. There is a personal touch for the participant and the audience can relate to it also. And the tension builds nicely, There are no hard to find props to buy or put together.

It almost makes me want to do parlor or stage. But if you do not, there is also a clever close up routine using the same props or any other random items you can borrow off spectators that can be done with one or two participants.

Mikey likes it.

Hi guys.

Once again, thank-you for all the appreciation and I am super happy that those of you who have received this are really enjoying it.

You know, life works in mysterious ways. There is somebody here at the Café who has decided to help by financially sponsoring my efforts here at the Café so that I can continue to do as I have been doing and sharing with you all in my normal fashion. So though they remain anonamous, you also secretly have them to thank as well. Smile

I will be sending out the the remaining requests I have in waiting today. If you're still interested in this piece, it is now available on my website. In other words, I am no longer taking requests for this.

But stay tuned, as I am hard at work in writing up my next release which should be ready in the next 2 or 3 days...

Thanks again for all the well-wishes and words of encouragement and support.

Just read through the instructions. A very nice variation on the Max Maven classic. Very low tech with only a few simple props needed. The included story line fits perfectly with the props and will engage the audience until the revelation.

I like this!

Thank you Sudo

I am going to enjoy using this.
Very little effort for a stunning result that will come with creating a unique presentation. The script ideas included provide some great ideas.
With six volunteers involved this is just what I am looking for right now.
Thanks for your generosity Sudo.
I'm now waiting to buy Pendultimate.
