The Blurb

Become an instant expert in lie detection and reveal personal pieces of information about your spectators.

IceBreaker is based on a classic get-to-know-you activity: players tell two lies and one truth about themselves. The object of the game is to determine which statement is correct.

The effect is comprised of 88 poker-size cards having different sentences on the face.

For example: “I have been to New York”, “I have a tribal tattoo”, “I don’t like math”, “I can play guitar”, “I am a Libra”, “My favorite color is blue” …

During the performance, your spectators are asked to select a card relating to a personal fact that is true for them. They then read out their selection amongst a list of other cards in the pack, in any order they wish. You instantly know their true statement!

IceBreaker comes with a downloadable PDF manual comprising several ideas for routines and presentations catering to all styles of mentalism.

“Psychological” mind readers may use IceBreaker to showcase their talent in body language or voice intonation analysis.

Yet, those cards can also enable you to reveal some star signs, favorite colors as well as more precise pieces of personal information useful for readings.

Finally, IceBreaker has been specifically designed to ensure that its principle is universal. In other words, literally everyone will find a statement that connects with them, no matter what.

This is due to the great variety of sentences comprised in the pack as well as a failsafe principle. It enables you to perform the effect with up to 6 spectators at once, without any problem whatsoever.

Get IceBreaker now, and add this stunning piece of mentalism to your repertoire right away!

Accurate or nearly accurate and complete.

I’m not wild about the cardboard box it comes in as with repeated use, it will need replacing.  But that’s a very minor quibble.

Close-up, Parlour, Stage, Walkaround

The cards are designed to look like a game called “Icebreakers” in which one player reads three statements to the rest of group (one true and two not) and the object is to discover which one is true.  If you like unusual, practical, and versatile props with an ingenious and well-hidden principle that can be used hands off, like I do, then you definitely want to check this out.
