Can we laminate these cards, Chris? Or will that ruin the workings?



I'm not the one to have the "final answer", however, as long as it is a matte laminate, I do not think it would hurt.

My good friend has Chris’s original effect using this principle 100th Monkey.
With that if you have poor eyesight it’s very transparent what’s going on and its so hit and miss as they can read what they shouldn’t etc.
As most spectators have poor eyesight he couldn’t use it with any certainty Gaz Smile

I haven't tried it on the pubic yet, I hope it flies! Such a wonderful premise.

Yes I want to say that this is a new effect and my friend bought the 100th Monkey when it first came out.
The fact that this has different cards for lightening conditions probably makes all the difference in the world (I only tried one card with the original and I don’t know whether he had different lighting cards back then).
I say that as the actual premise and method it’s genius by Chris.
I also love the theme of this latest version and may have to pick this up due to the lighting cards when I see some reviews.
I would love to hear more from Nathan when he has tried this out in different scenarios as I respect his opinions very much on these boards.
Good luck to Chris with his latest release Gaz Smile

Thanks, Stunninger and Gaz.

While it's true the 100th Monkey effects won't work on volunteers with poor vision, it certainly isn't accurate to say "most spectators have poor eyesight" or that the 100th Monkey effects can't be used "with any certainty". Many performers do it every night -- Derren Brown performed it every night for over a year in Miracle. It's been translated into over a dozen languages and done on stages and on TV all over the world. You can be 100% certain about it with a few simple steps. First, check the cards in the light in which you'll be performing. Second, if doing this for stage, say this effect involves reading so ask for a volunteer with good vision. Third, favor younger people over older people. Finally, in the last few Monkey releases I've used secret eye-testers -- there's a card in the Feel Better deck which allows you to test your volunteer's eyesight before you begin.

Oh and Nathan -- I never laminate just for concerns over shine on the cards. I understand some people have successfully but I've never tested it myself. As magicmind said, matte would be the way to go.

Thanks Chris, I will pick this up based on your great addition of secret eye testers.
Another genius idea of yours, I’m sold by your brilliant thinking to cover all bases.
Congratulations my friend on your latest release Gaz Smile

It should be here in a few days I guess. I'm leaving on a jet plane, don't know when I'll be back...actually going to Boston coming back in a week. It will be waiting for me.

Received my set from Saturn today, the set was mis-matched and faulty. I've informed Chris who said "I've alerted Murphy's (who did the packaging"
Going for a refund, whoever packaged this is clueless!

Such a shame.

Yeah, David, this is a drag. So far you've been the only one to report a problem. Here's hoping it was a rare thing.

On the good news front, I got a lovely, unexpected compliment:

"The most beautiful magic trick I've ever seen." - Raney Aronson-Rath, editor-in-chief and executive producer of PBS's Frontline.

Raney saw Feel Better performed by her husband, Arun Rath, public radio and tv host and correspondent, who said this about it:

"Feel Better is a beautiful, perfect piece of work. This is exactly why I became serious about magic as an art. Seriously, this is such a huge gift to the magic community and the world. After two years hosting a radio show about the pandemic, I can't wait to get out there with this."

Thanks, Raney and Arun!

I for one am really looking forward to this arriving from Chris.
I think the routine and premise is such a beautiful hook to use with this very clever principle.
Wishing a great weekend to all Gaz Smile
