Hi Café!

I need to find myself a decent and clean business card routine to compliment a swami effect using business cards. I could use my P**k W but it involves a double dip if your get me?Nothing nessasarily wrong with that but if there is cleaner, I'll do that. I haven't the time before performing to churn through my corrinda and annemann etc to find one so if anyone has a fav they can recommend , even PM me, be much obliged.

PM with what you’re looking for exactly. I wrote a book on it with a few effects that may work.

Docc Hilford's 'Boudoir Card Reading' offers a great method for business card routines.

Spelmann and Nardi's 'Unexpected' DVD has some great BC routines on it (including an ESP matching effect, a drawing dupe, and more).

Fraser Parker's 'No Pocket Writing, Pocket Writing' (found on Mentalism Fundamentals on e-mentalism) is really great also.

Lewis Le Val has a great many BC effects (also available via e-mentalism).

If you have the monies, Scott Creasey's 'Minimalistic, Metaphysical, Mentalism' (vol 1 and 2) all involve great BC routines.

As no-one else has mentioned it - the amazing Switchcraft. 875 pages at the last count. Essential reading for any mentalist.

Aaron, how many of your 79 posts are recommendations for Mentalism Center products? I'm starting to suspect some shenanigans.

Wouldn't the routine depend on what it is that you're trying to do/accomplish/explain? I mean, ANY "clean business card routine" would work? Presentation and subject be d.amned? I know of a great experiment in telepathy using business cards, I also know of a wonderful L&D Test using business cards, but I don't know if they "compliment" your swami effect in terms of subject and presentation. If your only desideratum is that the effect be a "clean business card routine", it seems to me like you can just use any clean business card trick you like. Also, shouldn't recommendation threads be downstairs?
I write and edit text.

+ 1. Switchcraft is exceptionally good, and with the supplements Elliott continues to release (at no additional cost), truly a gift to yourself that keeps on giving.

There are two business card mentalism routines in “Truth Fables”. One of them is a Living and Dead test, and the other is a way of divining anything that someone has written or drawn on a business card while your back is turned.
