Cardinal // A mind readers multiple selection routine. Without fail, you can reveal cards thought of from a shuffled deck in increasingly direct and impossible ways.
Tri Hard // A propless card guess using nothing more than the participants calculator app and a series of genuinely free and random choices. Several approaches to the method are taught, from the super safe to the very bold.
Non Lethal // A participant-as-mind-reader miracle and my solution to the single card prediction plot. The participant names the colour, suit and value of a card, and it matches the only card you removed from the deck and placed in full view.
The Spyglass Effect // A lean, direct ACAAN for mind readers, including a very bold opening that perfectly justifies the routine and opens the door for something impossible.
The Anything Test // You accurately reveal private answers to personal questions randomly selected by two participants. Layers of method make this a complete show-stealer of a routine that has closed my sets for over a year.
The Only Thing // A snappy variation of The Anything Test perfect for table-hopping. Within moments you can reveal something personal and important to any participant you choose.
Morningstar // This applies the Anything Test framework to playing cards and ESP cards, allowing you to slot those reveals into any other routine you perform with cards.
Incognito // One participant thinks of a random word, and another thinks of a random name which they don’t write down anywhere. First you reveal the name, then the password. This uses one of the boldest, yet most invisible peeks I’ve ever discovered.
Pyramind // A participant-as-mind-reader drawing duplication that introduces an improved handling for a classic technique and often leads to the participant reading your mind for real!
ZNNR // My version of a three-phase ESP routine that ends with a can’t-fail moment of participant-as-mind-reader. This routine shows how even the simplest techniques can be made into something memorable.
The Silver Hand // A Which Hand? PIN reveal. In closed fist, the participant is holding a folded billet containing their PIN. In the other fist, they hold a folded blank billet. Not only do you correctly determine which hand contains the PIN, but you can also reveal it in a safe, responsible manner.
Stonefist // The participant writes down a truth and a lie about themselves on separate billets which they mix up. They hand you one and destroy the other. First, you reveal whether the one you’re holding is a truth or a lie, and then you guess what the other statement was with 100% accuracy.
The Algorithm Prediction // How can mind readers – whose skill is about revealing information in the present – credibly perform prediction effects? The Algorithm Prediction is a performance framework and script for making prediction effects make sense for the mind reader.
