I saw forcing is a good impromptu unless no cards. If not then I usually use loops because that is something I NEVER leave without.

Banachek's Psychokinetic Time, is practically impromptu, especially if you wear a watch yourself.

I've done a few feats of contact reading at work and among friends, these techniques are taught in Psychophysiological Thought Reading. At work i've had somebody think of a tool. You could couple contact reading to appear like your using non-contact reading as well, just use your imagination and performing skills.

You could use cold reading techniques as well to give an impromptu reading or to improve any of your other effects. Blitzmagic mentioned Luke Jermay's Building Blocks, there is an effect in there that involves an aura reading. That's a good way to bring up your cold reading skills. Also in Luke Jermay's Seven Deceptions he has an effect called "Twisted Palm" where the spectator actually sees the lines on his or her palm move and twist, use this effect with cold reading and you have a beautiful impromptu effect.

A strange garden from Luke jermay building blocks use the same principle from the twisting palm effect, You take a leave and ask them to look at it, and they will see two pattern on it, the magician then reveal wich pattern they saw, You can make them see different pattern, I dont know if you can make them see cards, but its complex because you are doing somewhat a mental force for the desing.

It's great, whenever you are walking outside talking with people and you get to find a leave on the groud, it's terrific, I love it.

Also Stuck in time is incredible, If you know a shure fire watch stop, this effect will work everytime.

PK touches is awesome. I did it at school. It's my favorite mentalism effect.

Also I like "For Andruzzi" if te situation is right.

I sometimes borrow a piece of paper have them draw five shapes, have them pick one and reveal it with The Burst Bubble Suggestion.

In terms of improptu mentalism, I'm looking for something without props, especially without cards. I can't do cold reading or anything, because that takes way too long to do. To put it into math problem format, Susto needs to buy a magic trick. He has enough money and such for exactly one product. Help?

enough money means different things between different people. Also, what's your experience?
Going with what you're giving me, I'm gonna say go for some billet tricks.

Billet, eh? Well, "enough money" means I'm a teenager with no job, and parents who question this hobby, and sixty dollars. Oh, and experience means different things to different people. Specify please, and I will answer in the best way that I can.

......complete pwnage.

But serirously, If you're trying to get your money's worth, go for the PSI series number 4, and number one or two.

I don't own number one or two, but I've heard great things, and I say that number four is fablous for metal bending. Number three is a little on the slow side for the actuactal technique, but the other information is great.

I'll do just that, thank you very much. That experience question will be bothering me now...
So how much would that all come to?

should come to about 60. BUT only get volume one or two first. Unless you're perirous about metal bending. I'd say get use to the volume one/two stuff first, unless you really wanna go all about PKMB (PK metal bending).
