Sounds good...

A brand new eBook explaining my Xenomorph effects.

Effect 1: The participant shuffles a deck and places it on the table. You remove two £5 notes from your wallet before anything else happens as you say you will wager £10 on the outcome. The participant can see that there are NO other £5 notes in your wallet (and nothing written on any of the £10s or £20s in there). The participant turns over the top card of the deck - it's the Jack of Spades. You turn over the two fivers - one has 'Jack' written on it and the other one has 'Spades'.

No switch of the card or the notes. The deck can be fully examined (no dupes or gimmicks) and most importantly, you are using your regular wallet, not a gaffed one. Yes, you read that right - your regular, normal wallet.

Effect 2: Pretty much the same effect as above, but with no deck involved, just a thought of card! Yes, you read that right - no deck required. Just some bank notes and your regular wallet. The participant randomly names a card and it's written on the back of the fivers.

Effect 3: Probably my favourite - the same effect as #1 but using a Monopoly token as a counter to choose the card and Monopoly money that you can give away as the prediction. And a powerful presentation that beautifully ties everything together.

PLUS: the eBook also contains multiple handling and presentation options for all three effects.

FAQs:

Yes, ALL the effects will work with ANY currency. Pounds, Euros, Dollars and Bank of Monopoly all work great Smile

The Xenomorph principle can be used with many other items than money.

These are killer effects that you can do with your own REGULAR WALLET, and ZERO SLEIGHT-OF-HAND.

And no NW, PW or any similar tricksiness...

Surprised to see no replies on this thread. Anyone have this? I saw Apollo Robbins perform something similar at a business event I attended.

Hey guys,

So I bought this, because way back when I used to own Paul Wilsons Predator Wallet, and the effect was really strong.

Well Mark has come up with a way that you can use your normal everyday wallet, and perform the effect similar to the Predator wallet, and pack a punch.

you get an ebook with explanations and pictures, and works with any currency.

I believe I paid like $43 USD, and I quite like it.

I spoke to a friend that also bought it, and he didn't like it.

Different performers.

Now I have not made up the necessary yet, but you should have what you need laying around if you have ever made gimmicks before.

I think this is a strong effect that can play big, depending on how you present it.

I will be making this up time permitting and trying it out soon.

IF you have ever wanted to do Paul Wilsons effect, but didn't want to spend a lot of money on a gimmicked wallet, then for about $40 or so bucks you can make your own and replicate the effect.

Thanks

It has applications way beyond the main Predator routine too.

Hey Alex,

How much similar is the end result to the original Predator?
Have a nice day

Is this basically a way of doing M******* O*** with an ungimmicked wallet?

I would answer your question but you didn’t address it to me.

I purchased this from Mark a couple weeks ago. While I really like the workings of the effect, I personally did not care for the compromise for US currency as I find that an odd way to carry money in a wallet, so still thinking of how I would apply this as I do like it.
