The Blurb

Today, we know many routines about mentalism thanks to books, but for most of them you need a special book… but thanks to this creation your job will be easier.

EFFECT: The magician makes a prediction and asks a spectator to open a page in the book, which says the number page or simply choose one randomly while going quickly through the pages. The artist has on his hand a TRANSPARENT bookmark and the viewer will tell where to place it: on the first lines of the page selected, in the middle or the end of it… after the spectator’s free decision (both the page and where to place the bookmark), the illusionist will show him the transparent bookmark has a line, and that it highlights a word on the text… the viewer reads the word and it incredibly matches the prediction!

The "Jheff's Judgment" column below is a brief summary of a longer, more detailed version. For the longer and more in-depth version, and to get news and information about other mentalism products, please visit the Marketplace of the Mind Forum or subscribe to the free newsletter.

Jheff's Guide

WHAT IT IS:
Gimmick with routine(s) included

HOW ACCURATE OR COMPLETE THE BLURB IS:
The blurb is mostly accurate.  It doesn’t mention the effect’s origin, but I think most mentalists will assume correctly what it is.

SUITABLE VENUES:
Close-up, Parlour, Stage

JHEFF’S JUDGMENT:
I really don’t mind when someone adapts a classic like “Wordo” with contemporary objects, but in comparison to other versions that are better and less expensive, this product, which is inferior in craftsmanship and thinking, is just something I cannot recommend for any reason to any mentalist at any level.
