You will learn:
ACE DUET - A deck is freely shuffled a number of times by a spectator yet the aces are found all without the performer even touching the deck!
THE SECTATOR AS MINDREADER - A baffling effect that finds the spectator locating the card the performer merely thought of.
THE WORKING PERFORMER'S CARD STAB - A card is signed on its back and shuffled into the pack. The cards are scattered face up as the performer thrusts a dagger through one. It is found to be the card previously signed by the spectator.
TOSSED-OUT DECK - Wonderful touches on David Hay's mentalism classic. Five spectators merely peek at a card yet the performer flawlessly names them all.
BLACK MAGIC III - A great Bank Night effect as a spectator successfully finds a drawing placed into an envelope and mixed with three others!
BOOK TEST - The performer divines a word freely selected from an ordinary paperback book. Even more amazingly, the performer then correctly identifies a word the spectator draws out of thin air.
PROMOTION - A spectator is asked to think of a card. It is then found to be the only one missing from the deck. The performer then has the spectator remove the selected card from his pocket.
CENTER TEAR - Great work on one of mentalism's most powerful tools. Mastery of this technique will give you the ability to read minds anywhere and anyplace.
TELEPORTATION - A page is selected from a book by one spectator while an empty envelope is given to another. On the performer's command, a piece of the selected page vanishes and is found in the envelope. When compared to the torn page it fits exactly.
DECISIONS! DECISIONS! - A powerful version of the classic "Stop" trick. The performer selects a card and places it into an envelope. Cards are dealt fairly from another deck until a spectator calls "stop." Though it is a completely fair choice, the card is found to match the one in the envelope.
SUPER FORCE - Through the performer's apparent mental powers, one spectator locates another spectator's chosen card under impossible conditions.
BENDING WINE GLASS - Forget spoons! The performer causes a wine glass to visibly bend at the stem though he is nowhere near it. What's more, he also causes two other glasses to bend while spectator's are holding them!
